|Parked in Warborrough Avenue. Walked to The Birchwoods then along Kiln Lane to the horse paddock then back to the car covering all potential high points.||fosal29||19/01/2020|
|A 7 mile circular from Tilehurst station also checking out the 100m contour to the Nw (all lower) then paddock SU6558 7370 then track and cottage (all lower than field). Adj field to the South to intersection of fences SU6540 7355 read high then back onto road past nice large oak. Lane reading high and part-way into Warborough avenue. Continued to the Reading county top however not convinced this one is any higher so could be an extra tunp for Reading?||Dazingdale||28/07/2019|
|as for Bramley||arranc||25/08/2018|
|Horse field? More like paddy field. Churned bog, swamp, quagmire. Welly sucking!||Campbell Singer||29/03/2018|
|There is a slightly raised ridge in the horse field which seems to be the highest point and which matches the GR.||clivevilla||21/07/2017|
|Short stroll around horse paddocks.||Herbert Anchovy||17/07/2017|
|Purley on Thames to Calcot. Dovecot at SU649725 provides a pleasant viewpoint. My electronics suggest that Firs Rd, S of water tower, was HP of the traverse.||Smudge||12/03/2017|
|Parked in entrance to Kiln Lane. Sad looking horses in the field to the L so we left them alone & opted for the ground by a large oak tree just E of Kiln Cottage.||DanMaisieBex||12/02/2017|
|Kiln Lane didn't look like highest point but hard to tell.||Bramley||30/11/2016|
|Walked here after Park Lane, Tilehurst. Again not a very auspicious hill. Very difficult to identify the exact high spot||Sixtyplus||04/11/2016|
|West Berkshire TUMP completion.||Dugswell2||03/11/2016|
|11pm tiptoe in dark along Kiln Lane & fp and back -hoping not to be mistaken for a burglar or set off any barking dogs at this time of night. This stealth approach sadly curtailed the option of letting off fireworks to celebrate my completion of West Berkshire Tumps. Not even a sparkler; although I could have celebrated with a 'Legal High' drink before the ban came into force in one hour at midnight.||Chris Pearson||25/05/2016|
|walk from Tilehurst Station to also include the Water Tower top.||trimarc2||23/12/2015|
|From Manchester to complete last 3 in W Berks: Brief stroll up Kiln Lane: Very flat field. RHW may be right about water tower.||GordonAdshead||04/09/2015|
|Wandered round a bit, can't help feeling The Birchwoods is slightly higher than Kiln Lane||PeterD||28/06/2015|
|Kiln lane, west past Kiln cottage. Hyper muddy path. Over barbed wire fence south. Circuit of undulations of grassy field and few pools of thin ice on standing water and back again with high point of Tilehurst satisfied.||vegibagger||22/01/2015|
|Short walk on RoW to entrance of Kiln Cottage. HP appears to be at this point or maybe in the grounds of said property.||jonglew||06/12/2014|
|Some TuMPs are great. But this is not one of them.
Flat & uninteresting and no views. Short stop only.
Top seems to be roadside so at least no trespass required.||Hillsidenick||01/12/2013|
|some horses in the field. further on a nice steep drop on woodland is more interesting||Adrian||27/02/2011|
|rdside summit@654733, tabled GR 655737 appears lower, nearby Water Twr 663729 likely as high or higher. rdside||RHW||20/10/2002|
|Another backdated claim which will have been completed by the noted date during the time I lived here. Tilehurst top is a large plateau of fields and housing and the top could be hidden anywhere though I note the small 105m contour on the N side of the Kiln Lane FP on my 1:25,000 map.||crazy||01/08/1999|
