High point not obvious. Nice stroll through the woods though.victimofmathema11/05/2019
From Boston Castle car park (free). Good path then last short section into open woodland. Some rocky protruberences on the forest floor at SK 43353 90927 seemed to be as high as anywhere.jonglew11/04/2019
Parked at Boston Castle car park to the NNW. Not sure of summit, so tramped around a lot.David Evans10/02/2019
From Bolton Castle car park.Went to advertised high point but impossible to say if that's the highest point.Then did full circuit of woods.With Oscar.catman20/01/2019

Woodland paths from the SW reach extensive levellish summit area with woods on W and S sides, college playing field on NE side, all easily accessible. Deciding on the high point is more challenging. Playing field fence and derelict wall feel to follow the high ground and the SW corner of the playing field seems a good contender (SK 43376 91012)RichardM22/11/2018

Walked from Rotherham bus station. Top is very flat; I covered all the most likely summit contenders.IanHHill30/12/2017
Parked on lane to S of A631 near roundabout then followed Rotherham Round Walk to what appeared to be the summit. Walked with Libby and Toby.Wheelsy11/11/2017
With my dad and big sister.TLBW11/11/2017
Parked at Boston Castle and walked into woods.Ramblingpaul24/10/2017
Parking quite difficult mid week owing to restriction for residents. The option I chose was to use the hospital car park, however, if you wish to chance it you can drive down Lawton Lane to a large (hidden) staff car park. There is a squeezer gate at the end of the lane giving access to the woods. From here, 5 minutes to the top, wherever it is!moorsman19/09/2017
Used car park to NNW, pleasant woods, not too overgrown at this time of yearRobertP22/01/2017
Made the most of a couple of spare hours to go through the woods, couldn't really tell where the high point was, but wandered in the general area. Overgrown, little to no views.muzza229/12/2016
Parked in Woodfoot Road near junction with Mortain road, making sure to avoid parking permit area which applies on weekdays. Followed path into woods and then followed upwards. Visited a number of possible HP's all about same height in close vicinity of each other. My Rotherham UA completion.PeterD26/10/2016
Done on the way home, parking on Boston Castle Drive. Park gates fortunately still open long after the closing time on the sign, but I didn't want to risk getting the car locked in! High point impossible to make out under trees in the dark, but it seems others have had similar trouble in daytimethe_adam29/09/2016
As for Aye Jimmy.arranc30/08/2016
My final hill of three today on an 18 mi + walk from Conisbrough to Rotherham station on the hottest day so far this year with Lexi Rue, my partner's Labradoodle. We climbed to Foredoles head and Beacon hall before making a long traverse using the Rotherham round walk ( via Whiston for a coffee stop-off) eventually climbing into Canklow wood; a pleasant place for a Rotherham tump completion. I veered off the path to visit likely high spots but as other tumpers have stated, nowhere seems distinctive. My gps reading was 128m. We headed down a sloping traverse to Rotherham briefly following the Trans-pennine trail, veering off to head over the River Don, over the railway, past New York stadium, heading back onto the TP trail to finish at Rotherham station.Dazingdale21/04/2016
Parked in Cranklow next to KFC and walked up using several fps. Indeterminate hp in pleasant woods. Might have been easier from east or north.Campbell Singer25/03/2016
walked into the woods from Boston castle, followed all the tracks not sure which ground was the highest...good views from Boston castle.steven ruffles04/02/2016
One of the vaguest Tump high points I've visited. Anyway, stood at GR given, so ticking it.ngthack07/10/2015
Quiet woods behind the busy Rotherham Hospital and College. A SSSI and and also a Heritage Woodland which means that the area has been woodland for at least four hundred years. There was a Bronze Age settlement and also an Iron Age fort and farmstead. On the hillsides here a sandstone rock called Mexborough Red Rock was quarried -used for the the restoration of the impressive Rotherham Minster. One of the rock faces is now recognised as a RIGS or regionally important geological site.Chris Pearson27/07/2015
A round walk from Meadowhall interchange - Canklow, New Hill, Hoober and Keppel (revisit). Ascended all the likely lumps around the GR of the summit.Moorponder24/07/2015
You say that is the top, I say that is the top. Let's call the whole thing off. With the infamous Dugswell.Martin R22/11/2014
Used the lane passed Oakwood School towards the football pitches and onto footpaths in the wood. Had a good walk around the lovely wood with Martin Richardson.Dugswell222/11/2014
From NE drove up Lawton Lane, lots of 'Oakwood' signs about. Staff carpark being used by all, it was Sunday and football match going on nearby. Track led into woodland. Wandered end to end, paths everywhere, several possible 'high points'. Virtually impossible to tell highest, GPS not accurate enough for altitude.Aye Jimmy26/10/2014
