very unsatisfactory. visited 23 Walker grove and 32 Ridge grove. Noone at home in either but HP apparently in garden between two, so got as close as practical.Denise 23/11/2019
back garden of number 23 accessed with permission of ownercolinfielding05/11/2019
End of Seymour Grove good enough for me on a damp & dark November evening after watching Orient at Morecambe.agentmancuso02/11/2019
Permission given to visit back garden where high point is small area of grass on ridgeline beside boundary fence. (I wasn't the first to ask) Good views.RichardM23/08/2019
Knocked and asked, chanced it a bit as it was dark and after 5pm but after explaining my mission owners happy for me to wander round their back garden by torch light. HP up by the rear fencing.jonglew26/11/2018
Ventured a few feet up the drive of No. 23 but no further.Campbell Singer03/11/2018

The summit appeared to me to be in the garden of number 23 Walker Grove. The front door was open so I went in and upstairs to the master bedroom, where I looked out of the window to try and determine the highest point. To cover all possibilities I stood on the bed as it was as high as I could reasonably get and then a woman came in and started screaming. Then a man came in and took a most unnecessarily confrontational tone with me so I gave them a piece of my mind and descended by the same route. If that's how they treat walkers round these parts, I for one will certainly not be revisiting this hill.Wycombe Wanderer12/08/2018
End of road with new houses just makes it into the area within the highest contour. High point probably in a back garden.ijpowell23/03/2018
Revisit to view the new houses in Seymour Grove built in 2015. Number 29 is currently for sale for £530,000.Dugswell224/02/2018

Lancaster-Colloway Hill-Overton Trig-Heysham Ferry Terminal-Higher Heysham-Morecambe. With Bert and Reg. HP looks to be in garden of one of the houses on Walker Grove, but the highest point without setting on foot on someone's garden or driveway seemed to be in the new houses at the top of Seymour Grove. Walking up those two streets and Ridge Grove was sufficient for me.campagvelocet21/11/2017

Had planned to do something more adventurous but Storm Doris persuaded me to change my plan. Yes, the top appears to be in a garden. I also did most of the height by bus from Lancastertrimarc223/02/2017

Another pointless bag!! Far from ideal arriving here at 10.30 at night and pacing up and down the road but not being able to see the house number 3 and 7 do assume23 must be one of the bungalows least I'm very early for my ferryvegibagger21/07/2016
As people have mentioned, the actual summit is in someone's garden/driveway but I had a lovely walk around the area.JasmineS18/06/2016
Caught bus most of way 'up', and walked around the houses, figuratively and literally. Not such a pointless Tump when combined with a visit to the Saxon church on the headland.DanHolme30/10/2015
Back garden of No 23. Several metres higher than old resr/new houses and c.4m higher than Walker Grove carriageway highpoint.RHW18/04/2015
Whole area between Seymour Grove and Walker Grove under construction of houses and completely closed on Christmas Eve!Aye Jimmy24/12/2014

OS spot height is in back garden of 33 Walker Grove - but this probably lower than 23's - however could be the natural summit prior to lots of concreting of gardens.jimbloomer24/10/2014
Top is a reservoir which I had a look at with martin Richardson from Seymour Grove and Fell View. are due to build seven four bedroom homes here so may come back to view from an upstairs window of the show home.Dugswell208/12/2013
