From the Hall End bus stop, up Hall End and clockwise around the churchyard to the various possible candidate high points in the churchyard and nearby roadsMariana Trench24/08/2019
Roadside parking on Church Hill to the SW at 987952. Visited three potential high points.David Evans12/08/2019
Parked in Darlaston, followed the badly polluted and litter smothered Walsall canal to Wednesbury and then back through the towns of Wednesbury and Darlaston. Pretty uninspiring walk.muzza230/03/2019

Parked by church and had good mooch around.Ramblingpaul14/08/2018
3rs tump of 5 climbing Wrottesley hill and Tettenhall Wood from Albrighton station then the no. 5 bus to Wolverhampton bus station then tram to Wednesbury Western Street then via St Bartholomew's Terrace and onto Longmore junction (highest reading) then over to the Churchyard high point before descending to the nearest bus stop to take almost immediately the 79 bus to West Bromwich bus station and then the no.5, for Pheasey and Barr Beacon...Dazingdale23/06/2018
Parked by the church and did a circuit of various alleys including St Bartholomew's and Longmore St.clivevilla06/01/2018
Got there from Warley Park after nightmare route finding. Rain had arrived too. Ground on S side churchyard by two sycamores looked higher than Longmore junction and both higher than St Bartholomews.Aye Jimmy20/08/2017
Bagged the likely summits plus two benchmarks.Dugswell206/08/2017
Not the ugliest corner of the conurbation by any means. I'd say the highpoint is on Longmore Street. But I didn't go rifling in folks gardens..stig_nest22/05/2017
Lovely.rhalstead07/05/2017
Covered all potential high points. Sandwell re-completion.Bramley27/04/2017
Up the road from the east past the pub. Into the churchyard which is probably higher than across the road I reckon.vegibagger21/04/2017
UA re-completion. In Churchyard near the tree, seemed the HP, but also went to St Bartholmews Terrace, Reservoir Passage and Longhope Street.PeterD18/04/2017
Just in time for Easter Sunday service. Had a wander round the old churchyard while the congregation sang psalms inside. En route to Old Trafford for Man Utd v Chelsea.Campbell Singer16/04/2017
Bristol, S Gloucs, Northants & Sandwell recompleted on return from S Wales.ngthack11/04/2017
En route home from Wales, to recomplete Sandwell. Hand levelling based on OSBM on church porch (163.69 Newlyn) suggests churchyard HP 164.28 (ground level say 164.2), Longmore St junction same, say 164.3; St Bartholomew Terrace E footway 164.4; old resr front gate 1m lower. Gap at side of front gate looks wide enough for a child to squeeze thru, but maybe there really are guard dogs.RHW09/04/2017
Beautiful day. On way to recomplete SAndwell and Northampton: This actually felt like a hill.GordonAdshead08/04/2017
By coincidence I was bagging this on the day Simon uploaded it to the website. Churchyard seems the obvious highpoint but there is some similarly high ground in the streets opposite if you wander around a bit.Herbert Anchovy06/04/2017
Pleased to find the new urban TuMP -hiding among urban map clutter which camouflages contour lines - BUT on the ground felt like a hill with steep sides with a church on top (what else).However other possible high points across the road visited along with a failed attempt to visit the 165m spot height inside the heavily fortified odd looking villa / old windmill -however Chris C after painful hours of Lidar work deduced this was inside an old reservoir and artificial and not the high point.
