Parked in gateway. Short walk to reservoir gates.PGCE29/05/2020
Looks a nice hill from the road to the west, but the highest point is very straightforward. No attempt made to enter the compound.JohnW08/09/2019
Parked just inside field gate. Walked round the resr compound then over the fence at rear (handy tree). Natural HP seems to be at the entrance so no need to access the compound.jonglew19/11/2018

9th hill of 10 today on a Northants tump exploration by car from Nottingham with girlfriend driving. We visited Naseby Hill, Honey Hill, Ashby Grange Hill, Borough Hill, Newnham, Everdon, Waydale and Woodford Hill then took a minor lane leading to a rutted Byeway that we still went down before veering off to Moreton Pinkney, Culworth and Thorpe Mandeville, parking up beside reservoir access road. I went over gate to the fence and then climbed over to walk around the reservoir then onto the grassed over top, just in case the original summit top lies underneath. The compound is fairly easy to access as wire fencing is damaged where it abutts the compound gates.Dazingdale30/12/2017

Actually just short of the summit today, not wishing to add to the vandalism of the fence, but did stand on top of the reservoir a few years ago when a workman was present.Jonathan Russell24/11/2017
From the gate to HP by gate to reservoir and then to Trig.PeterD05/11/2017
Parked just through gate leading into field in front of mast so as not to block entrance. Took HP reading in front of reservoir gate then around left to trig with view.Aye Jimmy11/08/2017
Trig then Tump summit.Dugswell206/08/2017
Walk from Middleton Cheneytrimarc227/04/2017
My logged ascent time of 0530 is not a mistake. Got up in the middle of the night at 2.30 am for the 2 plus hr drive north to arrive at dawn for the 1st of the 18 Northants Tumps(incl one new find) all in wellies! over 8.5 hrs. A black and rainy night gave way perfectly on cue to a much preferable grey but dry dawn for this easy starter in the half light -to trig and around the compound. Game on!Chris Pearson23/03/2017
Went to gate of res enclosure and trig.chrisbien09/10/2016
