Up the edge of a wet, muddy field, then through nettles / gorse to a height that was below the enclosed reservoirmadaddo14/11/2019
RoW east side compound, then followed fenceline along N side, up grassy slope (nettles and a bit of gorse), through dense gorse to resr fencing, followed that along to its junc with the Arqiva fencing where I would also agree the high point is likely to be. Climbed to top of fencing - so clearly head above anything likely to be natural.jonglew31/08/2019
True summit inaccessible due to thick brambles and gorse - even in winter. Got to NZ 19449 57837carole engel31/12/2018
Along bridleway at E side of fence, up through rough vegetation to NE corner of compound. HP on N side of fence.John Lee06/11/2017
Gateshead bagging on the drive up to the Cheviot. Followed the footpath, then climbed up to back of compound fencing as othersthe_adam24/06/2017
From road around field edge and up through gorse to HP by fence.PeterD08/04/2017
As per others. Not pleasant.Madness rules.vegibagger24/10/2016
Battle with stile, nettles & gorseBramley07/07/2016
From main road over broken stile, through field and round back of compound, through gorse to fence.Campbell Singer24/05/2016
As for Dugswell2arranc11/03/2016
Footpath from road over very dilapidated stile. Round back of compound up bank to fence junction. Defeated by gorse for last two metres. That'll do for me.ngthack26/02/2016
Round base to NE corner, grassy climb up N bank, short moderately brambly walk R to junction of fences which is approx at HP as per AJ comment and expected from 1:10k map. Post midnight UA completion, 3rd of the weekend. Bonus cut benchmark on NE corner of house opposite, hiding behind gatepost.RHW12/12/2015
Access to railings/fence perimeter possible but prickly - gorse, brambles or holly. Thought the highest point was on N side towards NE corner where reservoir railings meet the Arqiva mast fence.Aye Jimmy27/05/2015
I walked around this well defended TUMP. I could reach the fence in a few areas before turning back due to gorse.Dugswell203/05/2015
Parked at SW corner. Hill flanks well guarded by dense gorse: but could just fight along 1m gap between gorse and high fence to a bit of a high point much the same height as inside the compound.GordonAdshead11/03/2015
Wow, fortified or what. Inner compound with water tank/aerial. Outer compound extends to A692 and couple of houses guard another flank. Ramparts are fringed by deep gorse/grass. Walked around this one and thought of another day to try get closer, winter perhaps...nordicstar19/06/2013
