Wandered along field edge and into woods. Highest point unclear.victimofmathema11/05/2019
From junc Carr & Bib Lanes. Walked road to SK 5125 9002, then field margin. Wandered around that 150m contour, but tricky to know precisely where the HP is.jonglew11/04/2019
Visited behind trig, woodland and field.David Evans25/03/2019
From junction through quarry area to field. Into bushes and probably went to high point. With Oscar.catman28/01/2019

Parked at junction and followed edge of fields into wood.Ramblingpaul24/10/2017
Impossible to establish the highest point by eye as many contenders exist. It is not possible to compare the highest point within the 150m contour in the field to the west of the road and the field behind the trig. Visited 4 possibilities just in case the exact point is later established. For the field, parking is possible on the bend west of Carr and for the trig on the adjacent road junction.moorsman26/09/2017
Quick jog up the edge of the field, easy enough but sounds of shooting from several directions made it a bit disconcerting. Came across a large group of men with dogs and shotguns on the road heading back, not sure what the occasion was!the_adam03/12/2016
Cereal crop just harvested.arranc30/08/2016
Followed the edge of the woods to the high point, then went in search of trig point but couldn't spot it - must be buried really deep in the undergrowth.Wheelsy31/07/2016
As others along hedge to NW corner of field . HP Just in woods. Also visited trig which was disappearing into the undergrowth.PeterD20/06/2016
After pillar walked over road and followed hedge line to the area which is possibly higher. Think it might be.Dusty23/05/2016
2nd hill of three and my penultimate Rotherham tump on an 18mi + walk from Conisbrough to Rotherham with Lexi Rue my partner's Labradoodle. After briefly circumnavigating the inner mound to Conisbrough castle we climbed Foredoles head, stopped for lunch on a grassy field on the outskirts of Maltby before climbing up to Hooeton Levitt where an attractive path heads upto the village of Carr before taking track to the trig (higher ground just before it) before going on to explore the high ground in the field, continuing to Nw edge where i climbed over brambles into an area of immature Hawthorn bushes. I got a gps reading of 157m; this appears to be the true summit. We broke out onto a track that took us to a fp past a quarry and then took another footpath over the M18 headed towards Whiston and eventually Canklow Bank.Dazingdale21/04/2016
Good parking at the junction area. Visited trig and then crossed over road to other field. Took in all possible high spots, but highest point seems to be just in woodland at N/W corner of field.SEMC16/04/2016
Approached from Carr. Visited trig point and then round edge of field over the road. HP appears to be in the hedge at north west end of field as you enter the wood. No mud whatsoever!!Campbell Singer25/03/2016
From north west through muddiest field ever. Was after work and I then fell over into mud and hadn't put overtrousers on over my suit trousers. Will they ever be clean again?Mark Sims10/03/2016
Visited this one on a pleasant walk around Carr and Brookhouses...visited the two high spots just to make suresteven ruffles05/02/2016
With Eire, Evan, Sail, Danu, Coel & Alfie. Highest point is probably in the corner of the field, in the trees. In the field by pylon similar height. Visited trig too.Dangerous Dave13/12/2015
From road junction. Visited ground beyond trig to make sure.ngthack09/09/2015
On round trip from Worksop. Approached up minor road from Brookhouse, and onto lane. Left continuing along lane to reach Thircroft and South Anston.Moorponder20/07/2015
Rotherham completion - ground behind trig does look higher than field across roadBramley06/03/2015
Bagged the trig, field and opposite field and field corner probably the highest point seen on a late November sunny afternoon with Martin Richardson. This completed our set of 5 Rotherham TUMPs.Dugswell222/11/2014
Second completion of the day - double hic. Please dugswell no more excitement, I cannot take it.Martin R22/11/2014
Easy parking on top of hill at junction of road & tracks. The high point may be in field behind the trig rather than the one on other side of the road.Aye Jimmy23/10/2014
Parked just opposite field. Had a good walk round to try and cover all potential high points.bolieve16/08/2014
