Repeat visit w Jenx and Bryher from near Water Tower, also to old topnordicstar13/11/2017
Parked at water tower west of hill. over gate into field S side of road. Visited sites either side of hedge (lots of gaps). High point appears to be W side of hedge.John Lee18/10/2017
Recompleted. Farmer was very helpful in suggesting the easiest way to the top behind the farm giving me a route avoiding the worst of the mud.Campbell Singer24/04/2017
Parked by water tower and visited HPs.PeterD08/04/2017
With K. Some real mountaineering.Ashley21/12/2016
All topsDave Geere18/12/2016
Visited all points of contention to re-complete English , Welsh, IoM and Scottish Mainland Humps excluding OMoM .chalky195308/12/2016
Cocked my leg on the gate (it's not my fault that it's falling over by the way)Lucky14/11/2016
Re-completed the English, Welsh and IOM Humps without Old Man of Mow. Did other suspects as well. All seemed pointless.andrew brown14/10/2016
Did all 3 new tops as suggested and walked back down the runway of the glider clubDARRENG14/10/2016
Parked close to the water tower and bagged all the bits that I didn't do the last time I was in the area before heading off to bag some trigs near Hexham.Dugswell228/09/2016
10/10 Last of Ten (Cold Law/Broadhope Hill/The Cheviot/Cairn Hill/Cairn Hill West Top/Auchope Hill/Comb Fell/Hedgehope Hill/Langlee Crags/Currock Hill West Top)Fergalh14/08/2016
From water tower parking, visited the two spots either side of a hedge then the one about 500m away next to a building. Not obvious to me which was the highest of the three.mae10/08/2016
A revisit to correct my botched job last time. All likely spots visited, after parking by water towerColin Crawford09/08/2016
Parked at water tower to W, walked along road to convenient gate into field S of road. Summit GR given about 30m into field, long grass. Similar height in adjacent field, hedgerow between two seems highest. All higher than nearby roadside.Aye Jimmy05/08/2016
From access track at Moorgate Plantation to Gateshead Met District Top, then to the Hump/Tump which is in a field south of the road near a gap in the hedge that runs perpendicular to the road.afoster02/05/2016
After bagging the CoU/CoA Top, did the 'alternative summit' which is now the Hump (From high point on road, could see through hedge & it appeared that ground in field was higher). Parked by the water tower and walked back down the road to access the field & its summit mound close to the hedge. (S)gerrybowes06/01/2015
Walked along road to tower from East top. Failed to spot high point in field (unticked).malcorbett31/07/2013
Went across the road at time to other side as it looked a possible but didn't record thinking it lower than the water tower and original summit. Notes then: Parked at track end by road. Manure heap now small hill in own right. Field planted w wheat so carefully used tractor runs to gain apparent top in the crop. Great views into Tyne valley and Durham dales. Also to fomer water tower top.nordicstar02/08/2012
On my old db as two points. W summit (Labourn's Fell P12): pasture S of road, pleasant pasture summit, fine views, at night (my last E+W County Top); E summit: unexciting pasture summit, mast, pleasant view. FP from wide gateway to NW.RHW17/11/2002
On way to E top.arranc22/07/2000
