Highest point seems to be in the gardens of Highridge , which is difficult to access. Another flat hill. Layby parking by water tower c100m to the west along the B3128.Hillsidenick31/03/2013
Same route as chrisbien. I suspect the house is on the highest point.Chris Peart04/03/2013
Fortunately someone had left a breeze block up against the tallish fence, in the field. The guard dogs must have been having lunch - much to my relief.jimbloomer02/02/2013
Portishead to Nailsea.Smudge06/01/2013
Drive by..(to much traffic to stop and explore!)heavyhorses26/07/2012
Just past gate and along the boundary fence.chrisbien20/05/2012
Summit is located in the garden of a private house... with large wrought iron gates... and a sign warning of dogs! We approached the gate, but didn't attempt the trespass.jonglew28/04/2012
Parked on Horse Race Hill walked through gate to edge of garden, not much in it. Field empty today.Dugswell226/03/2012
Clearly in private house garden. Very flat anyway so not important - in my opinion.destaylor10/02/2011
Posh new house built here since my 1967 map.arranc25/08/2010
Rounded top in the very private grounds of 2 posh houses behind hedges. We crept into a field to the highest bit- probably as high as anything else looking at the map – couldn’t really see -peered through the hedge - - casing the joint – hope we are not on security camerasChris Pearson04/08/2010
ran through field to as near to house as possible. Inside fence looked a few feet higher but couldn't climb over fence.DARRENG06/07/2010
Ditto Clive Richardson. Second very dull spot of the day.Herbert Anchovy16/07/2009
High point is next to a posh house with guard dog signs on the gates on to the main road. However, if you go down the side road, you can walk across a lawned field and get near enough as it is flat anyway.clivevilla21/03/2008
locked private drives to v posh houses; once 10m from road all is much the same level. PC 2011 security fence; RW 2003 driveway from S was open on Sunday visit, poss to wander in, the one from E was locked RHW08/11/2003
