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
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
From road to the south. 5 minute walk to the spot.bolieve23/08/2014
On way home from walking weekend , Parked in bus stop near junction , through the kissing gate across field to fence 2 minutes simple .Haygalzer18/05/2014
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
Parked in lay-by/bus stop on Chesterfield Rd, short walk up Newtonwood lane, hard to see new kissing gate and sign for footpath until you are on top of them. Footpath goes diagonally up field to halfway along covered resevoir fence then along fence to where it finishes and hedge starts. That is where the latest surveyors placed their equipment, and it was 0.7 metre higher than Silverhill. Previous comments on the log about higher ground over the fence, nearer the mast etc are irrelevant because according to my map reading thats in Derbyshire.Malbow13/07/2013
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

Mike Mcgreevy 'bagged' for the 2012 Morris Lubricants County Top Challenge for the TCT.morrislube06/09/2012
Meg and me not sure if this or the man made was the better view. Either we did both in caseRoland Brooks05/09/2012
Parked at the lay-by to the south, squeezed through the gap in the hedge and disturbed a couple of pheasants on the way to the top. If you're doing this you should head over to Silverhill as well as that's a much more pleasant experience.Richard05/08/2012
On route sth. Parked at compound, Whiteborough Hill it's claimed on signage. Far better name than Newtonwood Lane! Walked some of perimeter, not inspiring but view reasonable on grey damp day. A real hill unlike Silverhill nearby.nordicstar31/07/2012
Parked at the top of the lane by the covered reservoir and ran down and up the lane: the point is somewhere on that stretch!AlexanderHoward14/07/2012
Easy walk to the summit from the road, fresh morning JimBHMC19/02/2012
Started from layby/bus stop on Chesterfield lane crossed road, went up Newtonwood lane, crossed broken stile and accended diagonally across field to resevoir fence, returned same way.Maryfooksmills18/01/2012
Easy parking to S. Stroll.destaylor30/12/2011
Climbed as part of a 13 mile walk, started at the visitors centre at Hardwick Hall and following the 5 pits trails and other disused railways from Tibshelf. 50p cup of tea at Miners visitors centre. Cool!dianepick27/12/2011
Easiest bag ever - jumped out of the car at the water treatment plant gates, after bagging Silverhill with my dad.DanHolme22/08/2011
Not much in it given that you can't get at the top due to the fence. High point of the road side is as good as any.simon and co08/02/2011
Revisit as in the area.Dugswell230/01/2011
High point at top of a large field just off road. Access by a stile in hedge a few yards from compound gate.citygent19/01/2011
Indistinct top. Inaccessible as on land protected by fence (covered reservoir). Uninspiring, parked along road and walked perimiter fence to nearest point on accessible land (about 1 metre from top)Argentum6629/12/2010
Got as close as I legitimately could, which isn't far from the roadside. Strictly baggers only; the one that made me realise that going for all the county tops probably wasn't worth it!poppiesrara21/08/2010
Drive by and brief pause...BazWylie09/04/2010
on the way home from leedsmr bounce21/03/2010
My home 'county top' : Main feature is a high security reservoir and mobile phone mast surrounded by even more security fencing + a great view of the M1. You don't even need to get out the car! However, as many others have pointed out; Silverhill is now the highest point in Notts. An artificial top (former colliery) with a statue of a miner at the summit. A much nicer place with views of Hardwick Hall and nice countryside.trentbagger08/11/2009
Easy, but dull....Isambard12/07/2009
Parked on the road at the south, then a 5 minute walk to the high point.The Team05/04/2009
