Wide roadside verge for parking at NZ 3994 6440. Took the RoW running WSW until N of the HP, then followed GC internal walling to the HP. Lots of golfers about, but all ignored me.jonglew31/08/2019
Another Beacon Hill bagged. Parked at golf club, walked along the wall bounding the course, crossed wall on a ladder-stile then across scrubby pasture to natural high point. Sunny, broken cloud, Sonja walked half-way.Skip07/06/2019
Accessed from RoW to N in moonlight. HP appears to be by stone wall at hole 13.Denise 16/03/2019
From the N in rapidly fading daylight. Golf course deserted. Wall next to 13th Tee.RichardM16/03/2019
Walk from nature reserve. The along wall to the 13th tee. The only gree parts of the course were the tees and green following a long spell of dry warm weather.cjo08/07/2018
Parked in entrance to Lizaerd Lane caravan site. Pleasant walk along bridleway before turning onto golf courses.Campbell Singer22/05/2018
Parked by the White Horse in Quarry Road. The path opposite leads through a modern squeeze gate and up a grassy slope to the wall. Turn left, follow this to where a wire fence and hedge continues as the wall turns right. Stay with the wall as it runs up to the summit above the 13th tee. I sat on the bench bequeathed by Nancy Walker to admire the views and celebrate a South Tyneside Tump completion.Nick Down130/04/2018
From SW, along FP to GC and then along wall to the other GC and up to HP. Clear evening and not a golfer in sight.PeterD08/04/2017
I thought the ground close to the brick tower was higher. And so did the dog.maknipe14/12/2016
Parked at start of bridleway. Hadn't looked at the map for this one so accidentally walked up the farm road instead - turned back by friendly woman. Unfortunately grass was being cut at the high point on golf course, but found an alternative one which seemed as good.the_adam25/10/2016
Parked in Sunniside Lane. Made my way across golf course and up to 13th tee in pouring rain.Bramley25/08/2016
Excellent all day breakfast at the 19th hole!arranc11/03/2016
Parked near start of bridle way into nature reserve. Through quarry, then cut across to golfcourse. Along wall which actually divides two separate golf courses, according to a golfer I spoke to. Finally reaching 13th tee. Back to edge of gc & Great North Forest Heritage Trail, which can be followed to the road. South Tyneside completion. All of two hills.ngthack26/02/2016
Starlit beeline from ENE, 4th tump and 2nd UA completion of the evening. Parked just S of bus shelter with nice cut benchmark on gable of house oppositeRHW11/12/2015
Parked on Lizard Lane, then used bridleway to access golf course where I visited two likely high points by wall including near the 13th tee. Not many golfers at 15:30 on a damp, grey Sunday in May.Dugswell203/05/2015
Parked to NE on Lizard Lane on verge at start of bridleway. Easy to walk up field edges through golf course, but on way back walked up wall line NNW and crossed wall back onto bridlewayGordonAdshead11/03/2015
From end Quarry Road by White Horse pub. Up on BW through woods, angle up through trees to gain wall at GC. When wall dog legs across course follow this easily to summit at 13th tee.nordicstar19/02/2015
From the NW, parked outside White Horse pub. Bridleway E for 200m into 'Marsden Old Quarry Nature Reserve' then up onto golf course. Followed wall across golf course to high point next to wall and gorse bush by 13th Hole.Aye Jimmy02/01/2015
Not sure of date, but been up there loads of times. Only lived 4 miles away.Jhimmy01/01/2010
I cannot remember exactly when my first romp over Cleadon Hills was, or whether I ever got to its precise unquestionable summit, but it has been in my sight and under my feet since birth! A summer day age 15 will do for any boy's logbook ...bootsbootes01/08/1971
