Why not?Newton Maximus21/11/2014
Here's to a repeat of a non-top! After the movement of Bushey Heath CoL, on the return visit doubled up with the boundary top. Madness can only be the way to describe this behaviour!nordicstar22/10/2014
Small detour off M1 on way home from Nottingham.squeegs15/03/2014

Parked on the A409 SW of the crossroads Ė Walked up to Harrow's top at the crossroads by The Alpine pub - Then headed NW along High Road to the Middlesex county top which is located by the old boundary stone marking the Middlesex/Hertfordshire border. (PM)gerrybowes03/04/2013
Parked just past intersection to SW. Walked back to junction. Unremarkable. Building developments going on both sides if road which might raise an earthwork getting excited about!nordicstar05/02/2013
Visited With Darren while trying to visit all the high points on London in one day.magirob10/01/2013
'Bagged' this, erm, hill as part of 5 north London borough tops whilst on my way to the 2012 Xmas party. More accurately, got out of car at assumed highest point and then drove off again.RichieRambler06/12/2012
Walked around the cross road. Dirt mound by new development is slightly the highest point.simon and co06/09/2012

Early fog lifting to bright afternoon sunshine, but remaining very hazy. Distance 9.1 miles; climb 768 feet; time 3.1 hoursalan.65to7012/03/2012
Walked up the road from Stanmore Station, retuned via ponds and quiet roads.Maryfooksmills13/01/2012
I pass the spot frequently. The highest point appears to be the crossroads. There is a covered reservoir close by which is higher, but manmade.AlexanderHoward26/11/2011
drive past on the way back from the game fair with Is - not really worth it!mr bounce23/07/2011
Boxing Day Stroll around Bentley Priory, visit on the way.rhalstead26/12/2010
Approached via Bentley Priory Nature Reserve & a wander around Stanmore Common.Smudge25/09/2010
Biked from home (Kew) to the summit. Nice pubs around but no time to ty them as it got dark, and needed to start the return trip. Nearly 3 hours return trip.NilsOS12/08/2010
Parking by water works on Clay Lane. Walked quickly round block in rain along A4140 bagging both CoU and CoL tops, although at the time I didn't realise the tops were separate locations.Hillsidenick10/08/2010
Picked up with a few others todayBazWylie03/08/2010
A rather tedious and pointless walk from Stanmore.Herbert Anchovy02/02/2010
2nd top of B Hol sunday after H Heath.Maximum security reservoir!!. Visited nice old boundary stone,crossroads;circumnavigated revervoir.Utterly depressing top/area. Loads litter,keep out signs,traffic.Glad to leavemartin & storm24/08/2008
Closest I could get was 79m so did a J.Edwards and circumnavigated it.destaylor26/02/2008
Reservoir is now all locked up so impossible to get to top. Closest I could get was 0.05km in Hartsbourne Park grounds. Visited crossroads and circumnavigated reservoir to claim the top.signyred27/01/2008
As part of a circular walk including Harrow Weald and Stanmore Commons.Overthehilljill27/01/2007
Short break from Trigpointing in the Watford area for this topRhayader_wander29/11/2006
I actually went into the Three Valleys Water site and up to the top reservoir - but this may be over the old county border?jonnymuir19/05/2006
Tricky to decide as whole area is very flat. Best bet is at stone marker on the High Road (A4140) showing the old border between Hertfordshire and Middlesex.Nick17/03/2006
Very uninspiring, glad we were visiting relatives nearby as it wouldn't have been worth the trip on its own. Easy to reach on a short diversion from the London LOOP, or alternatively link it to a walk through the attractive Bentley Priory park nearby.wheresthepath26/12/2004
