From NT Cp, lovely and sunny on the way up, nipped up the tower with great views. Sat on the summit bench with a coffee in the middle of a hail storm ;) bizarre weather but great short walk and coffee shopJephcote8317/03/2019
157th ascent today involving several traverses and enjoying excellent carrot cake at summit kiosktrimarc204/03/2019
Short but steep walk up from car park. Very busy with families, walkers with dogs, cyclists as it was a lovely sunny day. Tea being sold at bottom of the tower. Part of day out with Marie.mazz17/02/2019
Car parking to the West and strolled to the high point and tower where refreshments were on sale.Many mountain bikers despite foggy conditions.NormanW16/02/2019
44km bagging loop around the Mole Valley in good conditions.atreides788709/02/2019
Parked at Etherley Farm. Went up through their grounds to up to Tanhurst road and over to Abinger Road before a hike up directly to the tower. Went back the other side and looked around off track to Leith Hill Road. Great hike.Browncjw 27/01/2019
15km limp / walk with still recovering Achilles, with L from Wallswood on last day of our 2 week housesit, and a thankfully dry day after a week of rain. Spotted the sea ( just) from the top and its offshore wind turbines. Direct footpaths for a change to Holmbury Hill.Chris Pearson09/12/2018
With trimarc2. Cup of tea on the top. 26km total day. Excellent fun. (Advent Running Day 5)Fionalevey05/12/2018
2hr Achilles recovery walk. ( been a month now) with L during stay at Walliswood. Jealous of the 50k Hurtwood Ultra runners who overtook us as wished we were with them. Less jealous on discovering the £60 entry fee. More jealous of the organisers for taking £12,720 from 212 entrants, for selling a run in the woods. Passed the source of the River Tingbourne - beloved by geography fieldwork groups from far and wide, with safe access at a handful of locations downstream , all shallow and safe and plenty of human interference affecting width, depth and velocity, so plenty of anomalies to graph and analyse for top coursework marks.Chris Pearson02/12/2018
Short walk up from car park using Greensands way. Funny that but Im also trying to fix a sore ankle. Mousy be the hill for it. We went up the tower toonickywood120/11/2018
From car park at TQ 130432.Isbjorn09/11/2018
Just 6 days to go before this year's OMM in Black Mountains. A 5 hour walk trying to understand and analyse why my left ankle is suddenly hurting ! Glorious sunshine - and golden leaves, with L following Greensand Way all way to Windmill and back again, often on guard to avoid being wiped out by speeding mountain bikers. Leith Hill summit heaving with folk enjoying the glorious sunshine with low mist over the Weald in am, gone by time we revisited mid afternoon. Collecting chestnuts as we went.Chris Pearson21/10/2018
With Tony and Sophie. From Leith Hill Place. Lovely sunny day with great views. Paid £2 to go up tower for even better views. Then via Duke's Warren to the bunkhouse back via Broadmoor then loop via Windy gap through fields and back to Leith Hill Place for an excellent afternoon tea.zoob07/10/2018
Included in a circular walk from Forest Green via Ockley. With K and Alison. We could see Wembley Stadium arch and Canary Wharf.IanHHill27/09/2018
Surrey Hills Challenge Ultracbradshaw23/09/2018
News from the far north that Darren is worryingly fit for this year's OMM in 5 weeks time, so duty called for a slow 2 hour run along the Greensand Way from Landslip cp and back over Leith Hill. Was a close call between that and sleeping off annual first 3 weeks of new school year exhaustion combined with sore throat and aches that had wiped out half the school. Kill or cure slow run .Pleased I went out and even more pleased to get back at car as forecast heavy rain set in for the day. A lovely area with some leaves just on the autumnal turn.Chris Pearson22/09/2018

Pleasant Sunday morning stroll from the car park to the tower.elizyanne08/07/2018
With E. A hot, sunny day. From Holmwood station across field footpaths to car park by The Landslip and up to summit. Saw muntjac deer in the woods. Pasty and cold drink at cafe. Went to top of tower with superb views in all directions. Bagged summit which was seat next to tower. If only all summits had a seat! Back via The Plough at Coldharbour and a welcome pint from their own microbrewery! A great walk.Beeliner06/07/2018
Started from Westcott; then down to The Plough at Coldharbour for lunch and then returned to WestcottHumpty Tumpty02/06/2018
Short walk from the car park then off to Holmbury hill. Great viewsBuck11/05/2018
Walked up from car park at N51° 10.453' W0° 22.270' up steep steps to the top. Great views. £2 to go up tower, well worth stopping in the middle to read the interesting facts. Also bagged BM and hill (which isn't the tower but the 'grassy knoll with seat', nearly didn't but double checked GPSr and went back, the people at the seat thought it was very odd!thejackrustles20/04/2018
Why can't all county tops be this good?! Bit hazy but could clearly see outline of South Downs.jedthehumanoid22/02/2018

8km circuit from Friday Street (big free carpark) through pleasant woods. Didn't meet a soul until we got to the busy summit. Good views from the tower, entry being free for NT members.milimana29/07/2017
Holmwood Station - Leith Hill - Dorking 12m. Very nice walk.raymondwilkes28/07/2017
This is a real gem of a hill, amongst some right mingers in the south east. There's a free parking space by the Greensand Way, to the SE of the main car park. A nice easy stroll through beautiful woods, and then more open pines towards the top, smelling gorgeous in 28 C heat. Tea and ice cream at the tower were good. Stunning views.Gill08/07/2017
On a clear day you can see 14 counties. Today I saw only one! Very heavy mist!Nick29/05/2017
Second of three hill summits in a 17Km circular walk with family and friends. Starting in car park on the Radnor Road west of Holmbury Hill, striking west to Pitch Hill, back via Greensands Way to pub lunch at the Kings Head in Holmbury St. Mary's, on to Leith Hill, and then returning to car park via Holmbury Hill. Dry and pleasant most of the day. Some brief showers in the late afternoon.VirtualMountain30/04/2017

Hiked 20k from Shamley Green for max elevation gain along the Greensand Way. Took in The Warren (tump), Pitch Hill (tump) and Holmbury Hill (hump) along the way.The Mountain Raven13/11/2016
A short walk for this county top but involving a fair amount of steps, start from Windy gap car park on Abinger road. The high point is a few meters NE of the tower by a stone block. Remember to take some money to gain entrance to the tower there is also a snack shop too.WAYNE ROWLETT12/11/2016
With K. Two Pokemon Go gyms at the summit! Unbelieveable. That's Surrey for you.Ashley02/10/2016
Everything you could want from a hill - panoramic views of London, South and North Downs, Heathrow and Gatwick, a tower and excellent shop at the summit!twg2730/09/2016
9 Tumps / 20 miles between Holmwood and Dorking stations: Leith, Holmbury, Pitch, Warren, Dunley, Longmoor, Bury, Tower, Terrace. Possibly the most climbed Marilyn of all? Or maybe that was just the Bank Holiday crowds. The shop at the base of the tower does great pasties for £3. Great views.Mark Jackson29/08/2016
Walked up from the car park. Great views across to the South Downs on a glorious day. Leith Tower and its Kiosk a summit feature.JohRvs16/08/2016
