Along Ermine Street for Cambridgeshire completionBramley12/04/2019
FP from Holbein farm. Visited a number of potential HPs around field corner. Completion of UA.PeterD13/04/2018
As Campbell Singer. It was decidedly dusky and I frightened off dozens of pheasants that were roosting in the top of the tall hedge. Hard to believe this was actually a hill.Herbert Anchovy06/02/2018
Parked opposite Holbein Farm at start of fp. Easy walk along to indeterminate top.Campbell Singer22/11/2017
As for KC.arranc15/10/2017
Parked near Holbein's Farm at b/way Ermine Street sign. Track to gate near corner of field, into wood, field edges. No definite HP. Thought approach track 230m from start looked as high.Aye Jimmy30/09/2017
One flat hill this. Walked straight bridleway from farm to bend and back.KC03/09/2017
Quick bag from Holbein's Farm. Headed NE along the bridleway as far as the small trees at the far end of the field.Owen B25/06/2017
Wrestlingworth circular. Extensive ramble around the summit contour - GPS produced highest readings along the Holbeins Farm NE track (apart from on reservoir summit).Smudge18/03/2017
Parked opposite Holbein's Farm then footpath to edge of wood. I walked through wood and along field edges for completeness.Dugswell230/08/2016
From Croydon ChurchFred Windsor04/08/2016
Walked along from the road. Small wooded area at junc 4 arable fields. Walked around but difficult to determine a precise HP.jonglew29/07/2016
Long bike ride from Cambridge via Harcamlow Way and through impressive Wimpole National Trust Estate. Been around this hill many times in the eighties as it was a good place to see herds of fallow deertrimarc222/07/2016

The sticky clay soil, globs of which stuck to my wellies, had by the 13th C earned the nearby village the name of 'hungry' Hartley due to the difficulty of cultivating the land here until mechanisation in the 20TH C.Chris Pearson01/06/2016
Bagged on way from school in saffron walden. Parked at bottom of hill near Croydon, walked via village edge up to trig and then path, road and field edge path to summit. Tramped over some bumps in the nearby wood and various edges of field, and even to telegraph pole in field. Top seemed to be on the path heading off to road. Beautiful sunset! Walked back along road to car as it was beginning to get dark. Thus completeth my Cambs tumps, my first county completion, and rightly so as I am a Cambridge boy born and bred.pdantic30/09/2015
15-mile bike ride from Little Shelford. Very flat top probably on bridleway, or could be at covered reservoir to the south.Mark Jackson27/09/2015
Intriguing that the big flat area has no spot brought of 83 at the place designated here or on Geograph but a number of 81 and 82 spots.vegibagger13/09/2015
