Didn't think I'd get this far today but collected hills faster than expected and glad I've visited Rutland Water at last. Interesting to see how the other half live.Wycombe Wanderer17/07/2018

Wandered round churchyard to various candidates. Nice spot.Bramley16/11/2017
Best hill of 4 today, including the Hump, Whatborough Hill. One of the easiest- just a visit to the churchyard. I made a 2 mile walk of it, though, using the footpath (very nettley to start)down to Rutland Water and returning to the village after a walk near the shore. Good sunset over lake.pwheeler30/10/2017
Visited en route to Stamford, parked at end of road south of village centre as it was very busy in the centre due to a hot bank holiday.muzza228/08/2017

Church still having roof repaired. High point may at back (W end) or slight mound to R as one enters churchyard (E end).Aye Jimmy13/05/2017
A wander around the church yard and foot path W of flat topped hill. Slight mound W of church tower as high as anywhere. Church probably built on natural high point but closed until July as having roof replaced. A pleasently peaceful village.RichardM28/03/2017
Parked near church then had a walk around graveyard.Dugswell203/03/2017
Wandered all over the churchyard and down the footpath behind the church (currently fenced off and closed due to roof repairs). With Sail & Coel.Dangerous Dave26/02/2017
Lovely church and village. High point seemed to be on a small mound to the rearColin Crawford05/01/2017
Around back of church. Fairly dark by the time I arrived. Nice stained glass window lit up from the inside. Found a good spot to camp not far from the reservoir before heading up to Melton for a water vole survey the next day.Herbert Anchovy20/07/2016

Seven summits total from Oakham train station by bicycle with DTL. 33 miles, 2,120ft ascent total. Shattering bike ride out from Oakham after long day but worth it - lovely little village and fascinating! Presumed summit by church.Fionalevey24/02/2016
Great place to finish a long day on mountain bike. 7 tops 33 miles and 2100' of ascent. Lovely village. Top seems to be at back of church.trimarc224/02/2016
High point north west of church. Almost a SIB.ngthack10/02/2016
Solo, back of church.simon and co13/10/2015
Amazing little village in the middle of Rutland Water. According to my GPS receiver the top was on a footpath behind the church which runs alongside a posh looking kennel business. Great views to be had just a few metres down the path.timday17/09/2015
With my wife & daughter. Parked adjacent to grassy triangle at the front of church. Several spots in churchyard are possible candidates for the summit; think a small hump at the back is highest, but bagged them all to be sure. Had hoped for better views than we got.wheresthepath16/08/2015
Interesting little wander through the churchyard and along the narrow snaking footpath that leads west from the back of the churchyard.vegibagger25/07/2015
