Lancashire Tumps re-claimed today thanks to Rob Woodall who arranged the guided escort with the site manager. A fascinating place and well worth the visit. The manager couldn't have been more helpful and we even had a cuppa :)Alan Caine25/09/2017
The fab four on a tip top tour. Manager OK with a visit annually plus you have to complete the rest of Lancs first ;-) My final Lancs tump.RHW25/09/2017
Most interesting hill for a while. Summit is falling as gas is extracted and liquids pumped out. The operator, Suez, have plans to build a higher hill to N. After this has consolidated etc it could replace the existing location. Manager happy to host another visit in 2018.jimbloomer25/09/2017
It's not every day you get a guided tour of a TuMP and with such illustrious company! Thanks Rob for arranging visit and to site manager for showing us around.Aye Jimmy25/09/2017
Bagged just before Nigel as he chased his hard hat back down this hill in the strong wind. Thanks again to the site management who allowed access on a quiet winters day.Dugswell211/01/2017
With Dugswell 2. Bet no one has been beaten to a first ascent because of a poorly fitting hard hat. Excellent views of the Lancashire Greater Ranges from the top. Smell not so excellent. Takes the total of hills in Lancs to a nice round 100.ngthack11/01/2017
