Been aware of this gig just off the east side of the M1 between jnc 28 n 29 for couple of years. Finally after dreadful delays on the road or of York to the birth had already made me an hour and a half later getting here than I'd normally expect, today it seemed appropriate just to add another 20/25 Minutes and get it done. Fabulous miner sculpture on the summitvegibagger27/09/2019

I took a walk up from Teversal Visitors Centre and took the circular route around Silverhill Wood Country Park. It was a beautiful clear morning with a good frost. The circuit takes you round to the Miner statue from where you get a great view out over the county. I dropped back onto the road and headed back to the visitors centre for a drink and a flapjack. All round a great little tump.simonshrewsbury19/11/2017

Great to find a summit without fences and reservoirs to contend with - even if man-made. Really quite a delightful place and view point. The summit statue is particularly fine. Lunch in warm sunshine. Cycle from Derby to Sheffield.RichardM07/02/2017

Remarkable what can be done with an old coal tip. pleasant walk from car park to the west. Summit is a great vantage point.Campbell Singer02/02/2016
Climbed with my shared dog, Lexi Rue. Started at Glapwell alighting from Pronto bus. Wked through estate and then fp linking to minor lane leading to boulevard inside the Hardwixk park estate. Stopped for soup at Stables cafe and then into Lady Spencers wood, climbing down over one fence to skirt Dovedale wood,clambering over stream through Willow carr vegetation and out into a field again crossing stream and climbing up thickly vegetated slopes, backtracking N about 20 metres to find faint path traversing the hillside which eventually led to gravel track which we followed to the summit. Fantastic views!! Descent by continuing on track to FackleyDazingdale20/10/2015
A smoothly landscaped hill with trails made from the spoil of the former Silverhiil Colliery. On top is a detailed sculpture of a miner testing for gas. When built five extra metres were added to the top to make it the highest point in Nottinghamshire -(as still claimed on sign below) but detailed surveying (see data base of British hills) has calculated the honour goes by 30cms to Newtonwood Lane. The surveying did not include the large rocks placed on top at the points of a compass or under the statute.Chris Pearson08/08/2015
From car park to south. They've made an excellent job of landscaping that's for sure. Nice spot apart from dog muck.Aye Jimmy23/10/2014

From the car park walked along paths to summit sculpture 'Testing for Gas'. Then a drive to Newtonwood Lane to bag the county top. (S)gerrybowes21/12/2012
Ran from Newtonwood Lane to this one, just to make sure! :)madaddo19/12/2012
Despite being man-made and lower than Newtonwood Lane, decided to bag anyway for completeness. Good car park, paths and miners summit at top - certainly the best slag heap I have ever seen! Gt Grandad worked at Pleasley Colliery (now museum), which you can see from the top. Great uncle and namesake died at nearby Glapwell pit in 1924.Hillsidenick31/10/2012
Very nice small hill. Good amount of parking in the car park and good views at the top.Daddy and Greg20/10/2012
Parked as others and jogged up slope. Bit strange, the spruce is growing up nicely, although bronze miner and views are nice its clearly artificial, nearby Whiteborough hill (Newtonwood Lane) is real and therefore preferred.nordicstar11/09/2012
