Visited three potential summits: Mill Lane, Water Tower and High Burnham.David Evans06/01/2020
Walked up Mill LaneMark Sims03/09/2019
Went up road by houses first, then to water tower (a trig intersected stn), scrub land at rear fun with head-high nettles!jonglew19/07/2019
Parked on tindale bank road and followed the footpaths to the summit coming back through the pleasant westwoodside village. 4.5 miles 1h20mThe-Z-Man16/07/2018
Parked in Westwoodside and had a wander up to Holy Well in Low Burnham before coming back through Haxey past the tower, checking out the other possible high points. An unremarkable walk and hill.Wheelsy14/04/2018
Walked with my dad on a sunny afternoon.TLBW14/04/2018
As everyone else, which is the actual summit is debatable. From the tower the houses look distinctly higher ..... from the houses the tower looks higher. Mill Lane is a road so can be driven down, there is a layby by the tower. Take your pick.moorsman30/12/2017
Scrub behind tower accessible in winter. Looking into compound, the slight rise near roadside gate looks a little higher.carole engel21/12/2017
1st and only hill today on the Trent Valley Way, starting in Gainsborough (train from Nottm, change at Lincoln). I walked over 50 km today (should have been 47 but I missed a section and had to loop round). I visited the scrub at the back of the water tower and recorded 44m then visited Mill lane and walked up to the door of no. 7, recording 42m and then followed field edge to record 43m in field opposite water tower. Visited tea room in Haxey then followed Trent Valley Way all the way into Scunthorpe, last 2 1/2 hrs with head torch on The Trent was swollen with water and the Super moon was a treat.Dazingdale04/10/2017
Visited all three possible locations. Grass bank opposite tower is possibly the top.Ramblingpaul04/11/2016
Wanted up to the water tower with my brolly. Blustery rain. Then up the other road opposite which it'd probably the true summit. Picked a load of crab apples from outside one of them.vegibagger16/10/2016
Solo. Visited all accessible likely high points. Grassy bank across road from water tower a candidate!Dangerous Dave22/07/2016
Went to Tower and Mill Lane. Driveway of No 11 seemed higher. My last Nth Lincs. top.PeterD21/06/2016
Mill Lane then water tower.ngthack14/06/2016
Tried Mill Lane and near water tower. Road near water tower seemed higher to me.Moorponder30/05/2016
Walked up and along Mill Lane.Campbell Singer21/04/2016
parked up beside Haxey church and walked the short distance up to water water tower...also walked up mill lane and a couple of footpaths as unsure as to where the highest ground is.steven ruffles03/02/2016
Bagged the tower then Mill Lane.Dugswell202/05/2015
Somewhere near houses 13/14 on Mill Lane for me. Not convinced that round back of tower is higher (if jungle was cut down) than crest of lane beside it, about 10m from road.Aye Jimmy12/12/2014
1) Mill Lane: houses obviously higher than road, rear gardens may be slightly higher than front drives; 2) scrub at back (SW corner) of water tower higher than road. Latter is the worthier summit... This is my final Lincs P30.RHW07/12/2014
I agree that the high point is somewhere around the water tower. Had a good look around it trying to take in all possible high points.bolieve25/10/2014
around water tower most likely top, try in the scrubland behind it.Adrian15/03/2014
Top could be opposite water tower, half way up Mill Lane or just right of junction with Cross HillBramley16/08/2013
