Drive over. Stopped to get out and stand in the triangle as others.pwheeler30/07/2020
Parked by field gateway and visited various verges and triangle to see which were higher. Recompletion of the county.PeterD02/07/2020
Stepped out of the car in heavy drizzle. High point could be the junction triangle with signpost.Campbell Singer19/06/2020
I've driven past this hill many times but this was a trip specifically to bag it. Drove from home with Sonja on a cloudy-bright evening and parked in an adjacent field gateway. As others have said, the high point is the raised reservoir in the enclosure but the grass triangle that marks the road junction looks like the natural summit.Skip16/06/2020
After pleasant walk at Fox Hill, an easy recompletion of Northamptonshire.KC05/06/2020

Have cycled over this hill on numerous occasions and walked/run on the Knightly Way, which crosses the northern side of it. This, however, was a visit by car. Highest point, outside the artificial ground in the fenced enclosed water feature, seems to be the land with the road sign.JohnW03/06/2020
Stopped off on verge and more or less at the top-visited grassy triangle and on other side of the road before proceeding with Lesley to explore Woodford Halse nature reserve. Lovely Wildlife trust site!Dazingdale24/05/2020
Roadside summit, exact natural HP unclear but I chose S verge at NE corner of water tower compound - which is securely fenced, but on lower ground, although the covered resr overtops natural HP by c.1m.RHW21/05/2020
