66km cycle ride from home to visit 7 of East Durham's esoteric hill tops. Great way to bag hills. Parked bike over wooden fence and followed stone wall on east side to crest of field. Higher ground appears to be on west side of wall. Waited for two tractors ploughing field to turn down hill before climbing over wall and walking a few meters west to high point.John Lee10/10/2017
