AS everyone else, climb the steps off Caledonian road and a short walk to the quarry edge. 5 minutes maximum if you are sure where then top is (the lip at the north edge of the quarry)moorsman08/05/2018

Walked from Dewsbury Railway station. The top is the lump behind the little mosque. This completes my Kirklees Tumps.IanHHill22/11/2017
Haven't been there yet but the mosque is along Caledonian Road NOT MelbourneRoad which is some distance away!moorsman08/11/2017
Steps beyond the small mosque in Melbourne Rd. Up and down in 3 minutes. Last time I was in Dewsbury was over 40 years ago. It looks a lot cleaner now than it did then.Campbell Singer02/11/2017

Considering this is now the nearest hill to me it's taken a while to visit, Kirklees recompleted! As others, Sunday morning before church so nobody around. Surprisingly nice place but full of litter, someone seems to have started a very successful mattress plantation...the_adam26/02/2017
From NE, Caledonian Rd, parking by steps. HP level area in garden above old quarry; mound at N edge of quarry about 1ft higher by hand level but in poor light, and presumably manmade. Early on an arctic Sun a.m. Kirklees recompleted.RHW12/02/2017
Parked beside the mosque up the steps then bagged a few bumps in the wood before climbing up the quarry to edge of garden which had two people chatting. Descended unseen then walked up fence line in garden again unseen by the two chatting in garden.Dugswell205/02/2017
Unusual and interesting day: vegan fayre Dewsbury town hall. Lunchtime visit to the totally Muslim dominated Saville town, cradled on the south side of an upside down U shape on the river Calder. Home to one of the biggest mosques in Britain. Indeterminate hill summit probably the SE quarry bank edge behind the back garden walks of the oldest biggest two semi detached buildings in the little Hillcrest Rd cu-de-sac, called Hillcrest and Highcroft. Went shopping in the very good value Mullaco mini-market. Then went to check out the mosque. Took my shoes of to go and sit quietly and mediate for ten minutes in the big grounds floor simple hall space at about 2.45 having miss the busy time of 2.17 which was the third of the five prayer starting times today. Got permission to be shown the upper hall space above, with ask the arch shaped Windows facing Mecca and then was talked through abit of what Islam was about and I asked about the fact that many non Muslims were worried about how some pevegibagger28/01/2017
Had one of those cross-purpose conversations with the builder that did not make any sense to anyone and went to the top anyway.Martin R13/01/2017
Parked opposite mosque. Then into wooded BTCV area as Alan. Scramble up to wall & decided higher on houses side. Then round to house with scaffolding as Gordon, to corner of back garden,wall & fence junction, which I think is the high point. The owner of the house next door, who also owns the house being worked on, came over & asked what I was up to. A baffled response to my explanation, but was happy to let me take GPS readings & a photograph, after I apologised for trespassing. Permission will have to be sought when the scaffolded house is finished. Meanwhile, I suggest would be baggers ask next door.ngthack04/01/2017
Parked by steps to east. Wandered around the woodland bagging the man made bumps. Also scrambled up from the quarry floor to the back of the house which is being renovated and along by the wall. Agree with previous logger that highest point is hard to determine.Alan Caine02/01/2017
A loop from Dewsbury station, up Caledonia drive and then up a rough bramble slope in between two properties to reach fp (courtesy of BTCV) in front were 2 bumps , easily accessible but separated by a path that meanders through the old quarry workings. I got readings of 77m for these 2 and also on rim at the back of a property separated by an ivy covered wall. I checked out the edge overlooking another very recently built property but this was slightly lower. This site is on the cusp of being a nice oasis for nature or a fly-tipping site. Returned via Vicarage lane and then following fp alongside the Western bank of the Calder. Disappointing amount of litter and flooding has decorated the trees in plastic detritus.Dazingdale27/12/2016
178 miles to vist two minor tumps to re-complete Stoke and Kirklees. I visted 4 candidate tops for this hill, but not at all certain which is the HP. Steps lead up W from a point ~90m NNW of the corner of Hill Crest Road and a new path runs SW through the old quarry workings / Nature conservancy. There are two piles at the N end at either side of this path and it is also possible to climb up to the middle of the SE fence line. However the house at the NW end of Hill Crest Road is undergoing some major reconstruction and I was able to stroll up to the HP of the back garden directly above the quarry edge, and this may well prove to be the true top.GordonAdshead27/12/2016
