5 of 5 on 44 mile bike ride including tinshill moor, billing hill, baildon hill, askwith moor and Lindsey moor. No one around so jumped the fenceThe-Z-Man20/03/2019
Also visit the trig which seemed higher than everything else (?)BaggerGutt17/12/2018
Walked round the enclosure and assessed where the highest point was. Eventually shown the trig point by two other walkers, but decided not to attempt to climb to it. Pleased to find later that the trig is not the highest point.JohnW30/09/2018
The forest is taking over! Pity the trig pillar, on the superb rock tor, does not mark the hill summit.ger17/09/2018
As David Gradwell. Parking area by entrance to forest tracks at SE 20876 51527 - Up vehicle track towards mast for about 200m & then turned right & along stone track for about 50m - Made way up through vegetation to small bilberry-covered summit mound, alongside which lies a couple of lengths of old duckboard. Good path to trig point which was bagged, thanks to the assistance of a local boulderer who loaned me his pads. (S)gerrybowes11/09/2018
Drove over via A59 after doing Round Hill and completed area 35B by walking round paths and track, first anticlockwise then clockwise to be sure of the HP. Still only 40 mins. An isolated buddleia on a forest track had 30+ Peacock butterflies on it- that was, to be honest, the highlight.pwheeler23/07/2018
W Jenx and Bryher from roadside CP, following track clockwise, visited HP nr mast then trig area, looked a lot higher, nice little scramblenordicstar02/05/2018
Lindley Moor > Lindley Moor trig from GR: SE 20865 51540ronaldo33306/04/2018
Short walk up comms mast access track from car park. Then into woodland to determine where the HP might be. Walked the perimeter fencing of both comms and water compounds. Fairly sure there was no need to access either to stand on the highest point. Trig pillar much more interesting, easy scramble up onto large boulder where sits the pillar.jonglew07/12/2017
The Stainburn Forest car park, marked the 25K map was closed for timber extraction. However, there is room for one car to park on the verge by the car park. We went up through the forest on various tracks and paths before a bash through the trees to get to the summit. With JT.Sprog02/12/2017
Actually taken there by the police!!!! Trying to locate the mast visible (on a clear day) from the Whitby to Pickering road. It's this one. Close to the site of the murder of PC Haigh, the first vistim of Barry Prudoms murders in 1982. This hill is actually known as Norwood (pronounced Narrad) Edge, the name taken by the transmitter a few metres further on. Easy parking alongside the road at the west and a very short strollmoorsman21/11/2017
15 degrees, overcast. More pleasant woodland than expected, mix of different trees and heather. Bagged the Bing too.Wycombe Wanderer07/09/2017
From the nearby car park.BLACKHILL04/02/2017
Although I had previously cycled past the hill, only 20m lower than the top, many times and also twice visited the Trig point [1m lower], today I actually went to the proper summit, and to make it a proper ascent, I first walked down to Swinsty reservoir and then back up.IanHHill14/11/2016

Parked by Stainburn Forest - through the plantation to bag a trig by Langshaw Farm - we then thread through the fields & lanes droping to Lindley bridge - a wood full of bluebells - a promenade along the side of Lindley Wood reservoir the a climb towards the mast and Lingley moor summit above a strange summit once you find amongst the trees - the trig on the other hand is unmistakable standing atop a sandstone tor above the surrounding trees then back through the forestry plantations to find the car.briandavies11/04/2016
From parking spot to east at track entrance. Took left hand track then turned right at junction. Look out for start of faint trail through vegetation on left c50m from junction. It leads to the highest point. (If you reach the locked gate of small reservoir compound you've missed it.) Also visited trig pillar on rock tor, well worth it. Saw a pair of Red Kites on way back to car. They have a stronghold on the Harewwod Estate about 8 miles SE so there's always a good chance of seeing them.David Gradwell02/10/2015
Solo. Visited the highest natural point in the conifers, the reservoir & the trig point. I agree with Aye Jimmy :- One of the best trig points in Yorkshire!Dangerous Dave28/03/2015
With Jo, from Norwood Edge cp: Lindley Moor, then onto nearby trig and then muddy tracks to Lanshaw Farm trig. Returned along muddy fp from Little Alms Cliff. Weather; high cloud, mild, good visibility.amblerbob14/03/2015

get the impession that they don't want you trespassing given the sign saying "Danger, poisonous snakes in the compound" So I only went up to the fence. Bagged the Trig too, tricky little scramble in the wetstevedixon09/04/2012

Walked from Swinsty Reservoir car park via Beaver Dyke/Scargill reservoirs and little Almscliffe Crag. Clear sunny day with very good views.PaulH18/03/2011
Summit outing extended to take in trig on boulder and further on to scramble / climb on the boulders of Hunter's stones - a nice addition.Chris Pearson13/11/2010
Parked at track end near Top Lane. Pt 292 is on top of the covered res. Went to highest natural ground nearby - 21072 51447.chrisbien30/10/2010
Whilst the 292 spot height is the summit, the trig at 291, 400m E, is perched on top of a tor and gives a gentle scramble - more difficult for the 'vertically challenged'.jimbloomer07/04/2010
Icy scramble to trig point on a cold and frosty morning was fun but ground nearer mast and my parking point on B6451 is higher.Dugswell202/01/2009
Short walk from gates at top of Norwood Hill road near 266m spot height. Highest point to W of mast, but main feature of interest is one of the best trigs in Yorkshire perched on top of rock outcrop to E of mast. Visited many times.Aye Jimmy19/08/2008
from reservoir bridge over hill, Little Almscliff, Timble and Back to start. clear dayjoseph mitchell28/04/2008
Highest point is in forest brash near a small reservoir. Trig point is on a boulder. I found it quite difficult to get off it in one piece...maknipe15/12/2007

Highest point is to stand on top of the reservoir next to the mast though whether it qualifies as a summit, being man-made, I don't know! This requires scaling a fence and engaging in a little trespass.briandiggle13/04/2004
