3/3 birthday kentumping, on way back from cheriton hill with only 5 mins to spare before getting in trouble with the Mrs, drove up the bridleway, ran to muddy, uneventful summit. Ran back. All in 3 mins?tumpawumpa24/10/2017
Summit not attained as chest height in dense rape. Trig apparently moved to SW corner of field. Would have been easy to access from path if not cropped.Denise 22/04/2017
Sandling stn - Blackhouse Hill - Summerhouse Hill - Tolsford Hill - Cheriton Hill - Sugarloaf Hill - Swinge Hill - Folkestone station. A strong contender for best Tump walk in Kent? Summerhouse and Sugarloaf are remarkable hills.Mark Jackson04/03/2017
Dover to Folkestone. Trig pillar has been removed from the middle of the field (now laying in hedge to N apparently).Smudge17/02/2017
From bridleway that starts at TR24486 38636. Went because of Cauldham farm trig and because I was waiting for a local garage to get the parts to repair the brakes on my vehicle, not because it is a wretched Tump. The fact it is nothing more than a near flat ploughed field confirms the general reputation of the P30sMartin R13/08/2013
