Parked off road next to field entrance and FP on corner of Strowling Wood NE of 89m spot height. OK short term. Walked to current grid ref on hill-bagging (TL857132 (est)) but looked like had walked over high point which looks to be ground near water infrastructure just inside wood on NW side of road.SteveSmith28/11/2019
Field edge/road edge just along from gate.CreakingHiker03/11/2019
Thought HP was banking on woodland side of road rather than field, or maybe banking near Adrian's 'utility unit' ( a water tank?).Aye Jimmy11/08/2019

One for the enthusiasts - summit looks like it could be a random patch of road. Farmers field and the woods either side look the same or lower.Buteobuteo09/01/2019

Could be either side of the road. Probably just in woods. Essex completion phew. Onto Suffolk.PeterD12/04/2018

HP seemed to be just into a stubble field on SE side of road.jonglew31/07/2016
Stopped and bagged this one on way home form lighting rehearsal at Kelvedon. Was able to match up the trees in the Photo in the archive and take another picture of very nearly the same spot but with more foliage. lovely sunny evening.One man Bucket 05/06/2016
A short 'walk in the woods'- but not quite on the scale of Bill Bryson's book of the same title which Im currently reading.(Great line when Bryson tells his friend to be more positive when he complains that its pointless trying to hitch when no cars stop to give them a much needed lift. Friend replies 'Ok, Im positive no cars are going to stop')Chris Pearson18/05/2016
Easy bag - walked from bus stop. Highest point seems to be just inside wood which was full of bluebellstrimarc226/04/2016
Summit is somewhere close to or beside the road, could be anywhereSwindon Bagger31/01/2016
There is a raised tumulus-type area in the woods, corresponding with the grid ref that's probably the sight of the beacon. Highest area seems to be nearer the road. An easy bag with Pete Doyle.Dangerous Dave16/01/2016
Parked near beacon hill trig, walked down the 'aptly' named mountains road to about 50m, then returned, and up a path beside woods to the summit, which was along the road, probably one of the gigantic verges I risked life and limb to surmount with the help of my trekking poles. 1st of a 4 tump day in Essex!pdantic15/07/2015

Parked easily at the footpath to NE. Walked back down road and a convenient few steps into forest. Summit could be anywhere.destaylor07/02/2014
