On the way home from Norfolk completion; Cambridgeshire completion.PGCE27/05/2020
My final Cambs tump! I parked up beside the mound, presumably not an abandoned BMX mound and after scaling it in a few steps i continued over the green and visited the spot height on the road (lower) then up to the water tower with highest point recorded just beside garage near water tower gates. Back round to the mound then off to park on hill row. Up footpath (not marked on OS) to orchard planted on top. Public accessible, start at TL44659 75831. Highest point in centre of trees. My reading was 33m compared to 34m near Water tower, so very close...Cambs completed!Dazingdale23/02/2020

Hp is on obvious mound within recreation area on short grass. Pitch black but twinkling Christmas lights pretty. Parking area nearby. OS map suggests it is an old mound; I wonder about its origin?Denise 09/12/2017
A visit in darkness at 17:40, area deserted. Only short grass this time of year.RichardM09/12/2017
Parked in The Rampart and walked 5 metres to summit. Forgot Aye Jimmy's advice about dog muck but got lucky with no smelly mishap. CAmbridgeshire completion. Got Magog was the best but competition was not exacting.Campbell Singer22/11/2017
Parked on road next to mound. Playing field very busy today with football. Beware of dog-muck: dogs banned on field but not so in long grass on mound! Now off to Little Ouse for a special trig, the UK's lowest...Aye Jimmy30/09/2017

Sunrise south of Gainsborough. A1500 trigs, to a breakfast 8am visit to Lincoln cathedral's very beautiful stained glass, to numerous trigs and an FBM on A15 south 4pm Ely cathedral and it's glorious octagonal tower and splendid fan vaulting ceiling.

Thank you Mr Glew for the track to the top of the mound, which I used four days later. Cambridgeshire completion & 9 counties completed in 11 days.ngthack03/08/2016
Wandered across to the mound and clawed my way to the top through chest-high vegetation. It is the HP, but it's man-made, but it's old - older than most bings.jonglew29/07/2016
The village must have been a worrying place to live during WWII as there was a bombing decoy airfield located just N of the village to draw enemy bombing away from RAF Wyton airfield. The dummy airfield was both a K type with dummy aircraft and a Q (night) type with lights which resembled an active airfield at night. These dummies / decoys protected many cities / airfields sometimes involving burning fires to look like a city on fire to draw in the next wave of bombers.Chris Pearson01/06/2016
Done on way back from weekend in Suffolk. Easy walk across recreation ground to grassy mound.Wheelsy02/05/2016

Parked in recreation ground and climbed?? mound. Views from road in front of water tower access towards Cambridge worth seeing.mart079703/02/2016
Another summit crowned by radio masts - as well as the commercial and telephone type a lucky radio amateur has his home QTH here. Chilly - slipped on ice getting walking back to my car - dropped GPS - oops - I'm going to need that for the next few summitsM3WDD22/11/2015

Drove to friend Jeff's in Milton after school from Saffron Walden, Quick drive to village, parked near pub, we walked down to 5m contour, and back up hill via field paths and village roads, back past the car through houses to rec. Did the mound and all high spots on the rec. Took some amazing photos of our giant shadows in the evening sun! Celebrated an actual hill in the fens! in pub!pdantic09/06/2015
Lump of ground in playing fieldsMark Sims20/05/2015
Cambridge rush hour: took me over an hour to drive fron Gog/Magog. Wandered round in the dark, but felt that the mound is the HP. Last of an 11-tump 570 mile day. 3 hours back home to ManchesterGordonAdshead11/02/2015

Drive from Coventry to East Suffolk top then back to this lump! Not much hill walking today. Bagged some trig points and lots of caches en-route to make the day worthwile.Father Ted17/06/2012
Bagged the mound which had 20 odd parents watching their sons play football. The moment we stood on the top the final whistle went, which made our timing seem a little odd.garyhoney01/04/2012
