A bright cold morning towards the start of the coronavirus outbreak. I'm grateful that we have access to this field, where I did the usual circuit.edmundjohnson21/03/2020

Parked in lay-by at end of Newtonwood Lane and short stroll up road and across field. On way back from doing The Three Shires event.MichaelF07/04/2019
Parked at large layby on Newtonwood Lane. Into field through gap at corner then 1 min walk to highest point on boundary. Underwhelming but fun to tick another one off!Eliza10010/03/2019
Yes, very interesting - marginally more so than the nearby tump perhaps! Parked across the road from the compound entrance and took a walk round the perimeter. There may be higher ground within, but all looks man made.jonglew31/12/2018
3 of 7 on brilliant 37.3 mile bike ride. Enjoyed this one. Including Mansfield colliery, silverhill, newton Wood Lane and the boundary, robin hoods hill, Mansfield hill and welbeck collieryThe-Z-Man28/09/2018
Parked opposite compound entrance. Easy walk along edge of field.Ramblingpaul16/06/2018
Along fence to HP, then round to other side of compound for the tump.PeterD09/05/2018
An easy jaunt from the road along the fence linedazedemon29/04/2018
A day trip down to Birmingham to collect a speaker cabinet...and 15 new hills completed on the journey :) All done by the simplest methods already given by othersthe_adam27/01/2018
Parked in layby opposite the compound: The boundary 'hill' was a doddle - very little vegetation this time of the year. Conversely the 'tump' was a battle through copious brambles and a slippery scramble.David Evans27/12/2017
Short walk from road.rhalstead02/12/2017
Parked up right outside the reservoir gate in a grim layby full of broken glass. It was fenced off all the way around so I found the highest looking piece of fence line and counted it. I don't personally think there was a great deal of difference between the ground inside or outside of the perimetersimonshrewsbury14/11/2017
Parked opposite reservoir - along footpath then into field very overgrown in summit area.briandavies01/09/2017
Silverhill- Strawberry Bank- Newtonwood Lane in one circuit, using the lovely Silverhill cycle trail to connect them.Endurance Adventures20/08/2017
Same as Neil Haslewood. Holly bush really needs a trim!Kate_and_Euan29/07/2017
Parked opposite front gates to reservoir in lay-by. Footpath is down lane through kissing gate in hedge completely overrun by holly bush. This was far too prickly so walked down hill and gained access to field through fence. Walked up to perimeter fence to reservoir and then to highest point.Neil Haslewood24/07/2017
Walked up From Teversal Camping and Caravan Site along old railway line. Kissing gate in hedge completely overrun by holly bush, walked past it twice, then pint in nearby pub.dgresty08/07/2017
Acess via public footpath blocked by prickly vegetation - a large holly bush!JMLB03/06/2017
parked next to the fly-tipped junk, went thru gate and along footpath to fence.lacerated myself in brambes to bag the top. Perfect use of the day ;)keithelliott12/10/2016
Parked in layby at crest to be greeted by fly tipped freezer and other assorted rubbish. That was about as exciting as the visit to the top of Nottinghamshire got. As far as county tops go this is pretty uninspiring.stig_nest02/09/2016
Parked opposite reservoir entrance and walked on PF to boundary hedge. Then went through wood to fence high spot near mast. Very brambly and overgrown.mart079725/08/2016

With Katy. Circuit including natural top Newtonwood.George Thompson23/05/2016
Inspiring not but needed boots as very wet. Parking very easy.SS14/11/2015
On a walk with Lexi Rue, my partner's dog. We started at Glapwell, visited Hardwick park, took a wild route to Silverhill and then trail to Chesterfield road and then Newtonwood lane. Simple walk through kissing gate to fence and then along to hedge, continued on to explore high points around fence and bag Newtonwood lane tump. We then used trails and Brierley Forest track and then urban roads to finish at Sutton-In-Ashfield bus station.Dazingdale20/10/2015
I was there for the sunrise - spectacular. Horses surprised but friendly. Grass very wet (memo to self: bring boots next time).M3WDD26/09/2015
County top outing,there is space for a car or two opposite the covered reservoir and then its just a minutes walk down the road to find the kissing gate to gain access to the field on the right as you look at the site from the front gate.Also walked up silver hill as it is just two km awayWAYNE ROWLETT04/09/2015
2/10 Quick walk over field to join off fence and hedge for high pointFergalh04/07/2015
As part of walk from Huthwaite. Walked along side of metal fence to point where it joined with a hedge, but in actual fact the ground on the south bank of the road to the south does actually seem higher.Wheelsy04/06/2015
With Tash from services, maybe its other side of road on boundary?pigerg31/05/2015
The 7th of 9 county high points todaymcallmar08/04/2015

Walked with Dorothy from Silverhill to Newtonwood Lane and back. Easy to find, certainly not spectacular!callumorr12/01/2014
With Natmagirob20/09/2013
Through the new-looking kissing gate and across the field. Then on to Silverhill just for the record.Newton Maximus18/09/2013
Top no.32. Train from home to Alfreton; walked from Alfreton Stn via Westhouses and Silverhill cycle trail to Newtonwood Lane, then bus to Mansfield and train back home. A cool, cloudy day with bursts of warm sunshine, and a short sharp shower while waiting for the bus at Newtonwood Lane. Distance = 5.7 miles, Time = 1:58, climb = 612 feet.alan.65to7001/07/2013
With Carol. Walk around two tops, one real and dull by a reservoir, the other a man made colliery slag heap, now wooded over, with far better views and a excellent sculpture on top. Carnavon Arms below has D H Lawrence connections and good food.mcf02/06/2013
A very short walk to the high spot close to the fence.bolton16/04/2013
Parking area next to the bus stop at the end of Newtonwood Lane – Along lane for about 80m and then over stile – NNW to where the reservoir fence meets hedge. (S) PS 22/12/2015 Went to Huthwaite & visited Herrod's Hill (George Bridge's county top) & Strawberry Bank, long thought to be the county high point. (S)gerrybowes21/12/2012
Parked up and ran to this, before running across the fields and paths to Silverhill.madaddo19/12/2012
Good parking in the lay by to the south. Couple of mins to the top.Daddy and Greg20/10/2012
