From the muddy RSPB car park in housing estate at TQ781,757 a mud-fest of a path to summit area of Nightingale thicket. Highest point we could find was a concrete fence post 2m NE of the wooden gate on the Saxon Shore Way path but decided against a thorough search of the thicket.RichardM21/01/2020
Along Saxon Shore Way from RSPB car park. Fair climb for small hill.Bramley30/08/2019
Bagged as park of a walk along the Saxon Shore Way from Gravesend to Upnor. Only hill of the route offered a welcome change of pace and views out to Hoo.MysteriousSue14/07/2019

FP from housing estate, around field edge and then into woods on FP. Just of path.PeterD25/11/2016
From road on housing estate to S. Good path, no mud despite being a wet day. HP seemed to be at a junction of tracks in the RSPB reserve. Didn't see a single heron! Good F&C van visits estate on Friday evenings.jonglew01/07/2016
RSPB Northwood Hill Nearly 150 pairs of grey herons nest in the trees. The nearby village of High Halstow refers to itself on signs as The Home of the Heron. Activity at the heronry starts early in the year and continues through spring, when the young herons begin flying.Chris Pearson15/06/2015
As RHW: used dotted track from 150m S, but no mud. Just finished two more Counties 650 miles: home at 18:00GordonAdshead19/04/2015
From S, path exceedingly muddy. Probably nicer walk from RSPB car park. Summit in thorny scrub near path.RHW21/02/2015
Since Marks visit a significant part of the summit has been cleared so its now OK. Parked easily at the P to south - RSPB.destaylor06/03/2014
Cliffe to Hoo St. W'burgh. Made an inconclusive investigation of as much of the 65m ring as was comfortable from where main path meets woodland edge.Smudge31/01/2014
