Walked from Kent county top about 100m down the road. Equally disappointing. With Rich, Chris and Andy.Biffin03/11/2013
nothing that's not been said before.. maybe we could petition the house owner to get a huge granite slab installed in the garden as a summit feature..stig_nest21/09/2013
While trying to find somewhere to park for Betsoms Hill.Newton Maximus26/07/2013
It was a box ticker. We walked from Westerham itself - bloody dangerous road!markrussell30/05/2013
As said by others this is a mad spot, with no verge either side of road. Darted out from by Westerham Heights House and back, parking in lane by that, possible to get the Kent top from here too.nordicstar21/05/2013
climbed with Alli, started at Botley Hill and continued along the North Downs.Approached from north direction but found road very busy.Cold and even snowing at times.No view from point.Carried onto Clackett services and then back to Botley Hill.(8 miles)rickybalboa30/03/2013

Not the best place to find a summit.bolton17/01/2013
Parked in a field gateway by Westerham Heights when doing Betsom's Hill - Kent's historic county top. (PM)gerrybowes17/01/2013
Visited With Darren while trying to visit all the high points on London in one day.magirob10/01/2013
One of the scariest hills I've climbed. Traffic on the A233 is lethal and the top is on a blind corner. Felt safer on the Inn Pinn!prwild09/09/2012
Drive by hill. Close to housesteverd23/08/2012
Clare & Charles. Not really part of the challenge but bagged whilst getting Kent.BHMC09/04/2012

Biked from home (Kew) through Croydon. Great view towards Sout East into Kent. Time used 6 hours return. Nice and warm summer evening but it got 0:30 past midnight before I was home.NilsOS24/06/2010
Busy road with no path. Did not hang around too long in case I got asked to wash a car.Father Ted15/08/2009
I think this grid ref must be wrong as it's in Kent. However, if you walk 100 yards up the main road you reach the London border. Not an inspiring spot though.Herbert Anchovy09/05/2009
This was once a Palmerston Fort and is now all houses. Got as close as I could without upsetting people or horses! How can this also be a Kent top?Nick29/03/2009
Walked up the hill from the pub in time to catch sunrise.Overthehilljill07/12/2008
Same as the Kent county top for some reason called a different name.clivevilla16/09/2008
It's somewhere on the left hand side of the road about 200 metres past the pub (which I don't recommend visiting).Richard03/05/2008
So many uninspiring 'tops' round here I can't even remember what it was like at this spot!signyred27/01/2008
Bagged quickly with Betsom's Hill on a return trip from darkest Kent.kaapiovuohi23/12/2007

This is my favourite county top.Lovely view. Nice roadelectricratman17/06/2007
Was a sunny day so was OK.destaylor05/04/2007
Not a very interesting county top - Trig point missing - great views in to the weald of Kentgriefmiester06/11/2005
Maybe the worst county top of the lot - a squeeze down the edge of a busy and pathless A-road to reach an indeterminate point near an eponymous house. The Kent top is nearby. A local bizarrely thought we were car valets and asked us to wash his car!wheresthepath22/10/2004

Did on the way to the Kent county top on my way from Beacon Shaw which on my old 1:50000 was the highest point in Greater Londongaryhoney15/01/2000
Solo from M25 services. Very close to Kent CT.mikejacobs28/12/1996
