Best hill of the five.Play2End06/07/2020
4 of 15 on 45 mile bike ride. Up through footpath from glebedale road. Someone had had a good drink up here. Empty cans everywhereThe-Z-Man31/12/2019
Overgrown path on NW side of hill reached the litter strewn summit with picnic tables and benches.Fairly uninspiring but not quite as bleak as Nigel's photo suggests.RichardM13/08/2019
From SJ 8922 4419. Narrow woodland tracks to top. Popular place for local youths!jonglew08/08/2019
Took route to the right of small metal bridge. Path visible but doesn't appear to be maintained. Decent enough views but you are able too see more in the Winter when the trees are bare.iron_sun09/07/2019
Parked in road below. Multiple paths which don't seem well looked after. Summit trashed with broken glass...a shame.ironwolf09/07/2019
With my dad.TLBW17/04/2019
Parked on Christchurch Street and followed the obvious stepped path up to the summit which was spoilt by lots of litter and broken glass. Walked with Toby.Wheelsy17/04/2019
Parked at end of Glebedale Road and took trail to summit.Ramblingpaul15/10/2018
From SOT station and backbevandy11406/09/2018
With Evie and Tol. Parked to W on rough ground N of railway line. Short walk to summit. Mostly litter free on my visit although path partly overgrown. 40m ascent.RoguePulsar27/08/2018
From NW, good pathsRobertP15/07/2018
From Glebedale Road to WNW. Obvious path upwards in the snow.clivevilla15/12/2017
Ascent from NW as AJ. Descent to SW on good tracks to rail bridge over road, then returned on 'black pad' to Longton station.Moorponder10/08/2017
Easy ascent from the NW, parking in Glebedale Rd.Aye Jimmy04/05/2017
From the NW. An excellent example of why man-made hills are worth including.summitsup01/05/2017
Past flats and up hill. Minor variation on return via stepped path. Good view of Brittania stadium.Bramley28/04/2017
Completed Staffs today but warmed up with a couple in Stoke on way . This one ok except for broken seats on top.Mark Sims15/04/2017
I'm still not sure about these artifical hills.. on one hand I think that anything that has appeared in living memory really shouldn't count..then again I think of A.W. who single handedly has compelled folk to climb Mung Common and Armboth Fell.. So I don't know. Parked at the bottom and was up this one in little more than 5 minutes. It's a dump to be quite frank. I suppose the good folk of S.O.T. might organise a clean up sometime.stig_nest27/03/2017
From estate road below.rhalstead26/03/2017
As for others.arranc20/02/2017
I can see why the teenagers like this spot - a good viewpoint to see from, but not be seen! Nice view of Fenton Low, somewhere I used to spend a lot of time walking when I was at uni in Stoke. This hill made for a pleasant afternoon in the sunshine.DanHolme13/02/2017
From W, well made paths to a popular albeit scruffy summit, nicely landscaped hill. Stoke On Trent recompleted - again. A BADL - quite rare and duly prized :-DRHW12/02/2017
Bagged with Paul Webster on a foggy afternoon and a BBRW. Then off to complete Stoke's five Tumps on Chatterley Whitfield Hill.Dugswell230/12/2016
Diversion off M6 to bag the two new tumps and re-completed the SOT Collection. Parked near flats to SW and direct to top along narrow track.PeterD30/12/2016
Parked in Glebedale Rd, walked past flats and straight up. Pleasant summit spoiled by empty cans and bottles. Third time I have completed S on T this year. Do the Tamperers have links with the S on T tourist board?Campbell Singer29/12/2016
Plenty of parking to west. Rubbish tip at the top!Alan Caine28/12/2016
Could not keep away to recomplete Stoke. Not a bad little point.GordonAdshead27/12/2016
The reclamation scheme of Fenton Colliery Tip (as it was once known) was inaugurated by The Prime Minister Edward Heath in 1971 and finished less than 2 years later. I went straight up the SW flank in about 7 minutes -the same time as it takes to play one of the 3 classical music scores written by Vic Carnell -Opus 10, 1,2 and 3 (sunrise, sunset and nocturnal) very oddly called Glebedale Park Hill and first payed in 2010 in the Victoria Hall, Stoke, - making this truly a'classic' hill! Sadly the summit benches and picnic tables have clearly become a magnet for teenage drinking binges - their abandoned beer cans and rubbish being an extra 'tip on a tip', and if they ever grass over could probably add a good chunk to the TuMP height? Stoke 5 detour complete so back to the M6 to continue the long drive back to Sussex.Chris Pearson21/12/2016
Visited after Chatterley Whitfield survey. Parking and zig zag as David. Summit area needs a clean up, if the next bagger fancies taking a rubbish bag.ngthack13/12/2016
I went up this old spoil heap a few times about 32 years ago when I worked in nearby Duke Street. (The site of my old works is now part of the Victoria Place Link). I recently drove through this area while showing my family the site of my former works and my TuMPometer was immediately set off when I saw the now wooded hill. A visit on December 12th confirmed the TuMP potential. Plenty of parking at SJ 89416 44186. I followed the, at first, slowly rising footpath around the southern side of the hill, which later zig zags towards the summit.David Evans12/12/2016
