Parked possibly on the summit.David Evans12/08/2019
I unearthed this tump a few years back by too many hours peering at maps of Birmingham. Officially just called Hill , It only qualifies as Birmingham’s only Tump by dint of the railway cutting to the SW. beyond which is Sutton Park which at 9km square is a huge urban park and is also a National Nature Reserve and in parts a SSSI. The tv / radio transmitter close to the top is the second most important in Britain (after Crystal Palace) for the number of people it serves.In 1949 it first brought BBC tv to the masses beyond London.It now has a network of 35 relay stations to reach areas in the shadow of hills. I parked up and had a bite for 15 mins listening to the radio ( got a very good reception).Chris Pearson28/03/2019

2nd of 2 tumps and my 39th County/Ua completion on an 18km route from Tamworth to Butlers Lane station climbing the Devils Dressing Room then carefully over the A5, then Watling Street, School lane, Rookery lane, Brockhurst lane then footpath and track to the A38, linking to Worcester lane, Hillwood lane to Dunton Close, recording 172m next to Wall @ SP 11468 99862 in corner of communal green. Then i followed road round to the high area where I dawdled between Stringer and Wardle close recording the same height @ SP 11410 99916 and SP 11404 99927 respectively. Descent to Hill village road then footpath continuing from Gresley Close to finish at Butlers lane station, taking train to Lichfield Trent Valley and Tamworth for train back to Nottingham.Dazingdale11/11/2018

What to do on a damp Saturday.Dugswell216/06/2018

Afternoon drive from Manchester: Interesting place to construct a high-class housing development.GordonAdshead20/12/2017
Exclusive little closes. Dunton and Wardle with it's own festive red light flashing 'rocket ship' rising up out of the smoke of imminent take off.... So it seemed as the nearby very tall antenae radio mast loomed out of the dusky mists of post sunset failing light. Black County newest tump.vegibagger18/12/2017
Easiest UA completion in the world. Junction of Dunton Close & Wardle Close. Felt as though I was going downhill as I went towards grassy area & fence.ngthack07/12/2017
My local TUMP, only a 5 mile cycle through Sutton Park from home. Sunny afternoon. Large levelish summit with neat housing, reasonable views N. High point the pavement opposite entrance to Wardle Close.RichardM07/12/2017
An evening visit. Christmas illuminations on pleasant suburban houses outdone by the lights on the Sutton Coldfield transmitter tower. High point seems to be at the entrance to Wardle Close or on the lawn at the end of Dunton Close.Campbell Singer06/12/2017
