Parking next to the grass area in question, nice small wooded area to wander round too.WAYNE ROWLETT05/07/2020
Easy parking at the start of the RoW down Poll Hill Road. Easy, grassy tracks.moorsman05/03/2020
On my own. Drove up Tower Road North and found to my surprise that I was there. Not a lot more to say, walked around a bit to try to find the very highest point, by silver birch seams right.Walkingthedog08/12/2019
Whiling away a warm afternoon with Lindsey. Up the sandstone alley adescribed in other logs to natural HP at end of Tower Road North. True HP is in compound on top of covered reservoir.Skip19/05/2019
A pity that this summit of Wirral is not 3km NW along the same sandstone ridge at the much finer, open heathland and craggy rise at Thurstaston Hill. Below is the Wirral Way a 12 mile route following the old railway which I walked as a teenager with a school friend having been inspired to return when we discovered its existence on a geography trip to Wirral Country Park.Chris Pearson29/03/2019
On own. Short walk from Tower Road North.Beeliner11/03/2019
Surely the easiest tump in the UK? Heswall is fun and a little schizophrenic.nwormgage03/01/2019

With Alex C. Hopped over fence into compound and up onto covered reservoir, but natural HP probably at the end of Tower Road North.jonglew07/10/2017
Short stroll from Tower Road North. I checked out various points but where I'd parked seemed as good as anyColin Crawford07/10/2017
Parked at the end of Tower road south. Wandered around grass, scrubby birch and benches with Bryher, dog not impressed. Been on better County tops she said.nordicstar22/07/2017
1st of the 4 Wirral hills climbed from Heswall station via Whitfield common. Highest point is either the Asphalt next to the communications tower, beside the birch or in the gorse. I thrashed about in it and got the same readings so could be several points that qualify. I continued on same level, took bridleway sw then Nw past Oldfield farm & then fp past alongside the 'Dungeon' to reach the Wirral Way. Next hill: Caldy bill.Dazingdale29/04/2017
In my suit whilst working in the area, got to be one of the easiest bags. Only because it's on a list!Rob5007/03/2017
West Kirkby to Heswall stations over Cadly, Thurstaston and Poll Hill. Highest point on the Wirral but the nadir of my day.Jake99402/12/2016

The end of Tower Rd North is within a few metres of summit. Highest spot looked to be near some silver birch on opposite side of path rather than by railings.Aye Jimmy20/01/2016
A quick walk up from Tower Road South on the way back from a walk around Caldy Hill, Thurstaton and the Wirral Way. Not that impressive, but an easy one to tick off.Lazylizzie02/01/2016
