Inland sand and gravel extraction for construction is big in Norfolk, with many quarries around here e.g to the south of this flat hill field where Sid George, and now his family have been digging the stuff out since 1949..The estimated 15 million tonnes in currently permitted areas for extraction across Norfolk should last another 20 years. Summit would seem to be the grassed over earth bank outside the reservoir, behind the trees alongside the main road. Probably formed of the waste soil pushed up to one side when constructing the reservoirChris Pearson22/04/2019
9th Norfolk Tump of the day and County completion. Didn't save the best until lastBramley11/04/2019
East Winch to South Wootton. Bank between reservoir & road proved to be HP of this section although, as PeterD points out, mounds in the sand pit area to S are higher.Smudge02/12/2018
From road to south - a mud fest getting to Telegraph pole. Active landfill to south will soon become high point.PeterD13/04/2018
3rd And final Norfolk tump of the day. I left Lesley and my grumpy mum in the car while i explored the 43m spot height on the road recording a solid and stable 42m then i followed the field edge before cutting across to the telegraph pole in the currently bare field (it does look the highest point in the field) recording 41m wavering to 42m..Spot height on road seemed to be a smidge higher. Returned to car for the long drive back to Nottingham.Dazingdale07/04/2018
No ferrets but a mountain of harvested sugar beet. From muddy pull in to the south.Campbell Singer16/03/2018
Convenient tractor track Northwards through cropped field to central telegraph pole though field edge may be as high . a generally level field. Cold clear and sunny.Denise 08/12/2017
From the S along tractor tram lines through root crop with crinkly green leaves. Levellish farmland, wooden pylon pole as good a high point as any.RichardM08/12/2017
Entered cabbage field from SE corner on East Winch Road. Tractor tracks go round left, then another went off at right angles heading directly to the 'telegraph pole' - which in fact is supporting electricity cables.Aye Jimmy27/09/2017
In a stubble field.Dugswell202/09/2016
HP maybe a bit north of the pole..Adrian28/05/2016
My GR almost exactly that of RHW's second one, by the pole. Large flat field of stubble, HP could almost be anywhere.jonglew22/01/2016
