Parked up and ran up the field(s), through 2 BW fences to the supposed summit with 2 friendly horses close by. Difficult to determine the exact top.madaddo17/10/2019
Roadside parking (NZ 2150 5785). Walked back to non-existent RoW heading off ENE, had to wade through roadside hedgerow and hop over stock fencing. HP in a paddock with a lot of inquisitive horses, friendly though. Wandered around the 215m co, then walked NE to the other one; wasn't able to determine where the HP was by eye.jonglew31/08/2019

Camped overnight in van on minor road to SW after Sunderland completion day before. Ridiculous amount of traffic for such a minor road. Must be a commuting route. First of Gateshead completion today.ngthack26/02/2016
From SW. Soggy field on a dark cold breezy night. A couple of level summit areas, had a good wander about, met some horses, enjoyed the streetlights view.RHW12/12/2015
From lane to NE, at opposite end of f/p to SW approach. Not recommended, bullocks in field and awkward fence to cross. Possible high points near fence/fence junction, or fence/hedge junction.Aye Jimmy27/05/2015
