Short walk along track no quads about.mart079710/02/2017
4th top of the day on an outing with Lesley and my mum from Nottingham. I visited Patchett's Cliff, Ash Holt and Sheffield's Hill before stopping for coffee and the Hope and Anchor in South Ferriby (looking across to Read's Island) after which we parked up on Saxby all Saints and then incorporated a visit to this top on a pleasant circular walk. I also walked into cereal crop to check if there wasn't a higher point and there didn't seem to be. I walked all the way around the fenced off reservoir too. North Lincs now completed! After returning to the car we set off for Wold Newton....Dazingdale14/01/2017
Short walk up track to reservoirPeterD20/06/2016
Parked next to track. Farmer on quad raced along road to inform me that there was no ROW and that he was expressly giving me permission to walk along the track. Whilst he was quite formal he was entirely polite as was I. Having given me permission he rode off into the distance to deal with his potato crop. Two minutes along the track and back.Campbell Singer21/04/2016
Parked on grass verge to west adjacent to gate.David Gradwell14/02/2016

wander up the track to the site of destroyed trig and round the new reservoir site, leisurely drive en route for Horncastle.vegibagger06/09/2014
Parked at end of track and had a quick walk to the reservoir.bolieve30/08/2014
Parked near start of track. Easy walk to give good views.Jacqdaw16/08/2014
After ticking off a few on the N side of the Humber came over The Bridge (only £1.50) for a few more. Parked carefully at start of track leading past reservoir (tractors in East Yorks are enormous!). Short walk to/around Anglian Water's tank, highest accessible point seems to be next to track.Aye Jimmy14/08/2014
Back to bagging after a day grabbing. All county tops should be like this. Easy walk, surprising views.Newton Maximus01/06/2014
A nice view from up there. An easy walk from the road.robmurray13/03/2014
With David in the kit car - quick walk around the reservoir and onto the next one...Richard02/02/2014
driveby on the way back from hexhammr bounce07/08/2013
A very easy 10 minute return amble from the road (parking on the verge). The lethargic ones can actually drive to it down the reservoir access road. Solid surface and a turning place. Sadly, one's mind convinces you that there are several higher places just to the north!moorsman23/12/2012
Parked in Saxby village and followed footpath from church and then by road. Met a water board van at the top.Overthehilljill16/06/2011
Walked up the track from the minor road to the west passing over the high point just beyond the reservoir, continued on as far as the woods just to be sure.yorkie15/06/2011
Windy day, big view of the flat lands and Humber from the top. Again easy walk up from road - you can park where the track meets the road.simon and co23/05/2011
Easy bag from the west to point just passed reservoir on mild grey afternoon.Dugswell209/10/2010

From the track.destaylor21/09/2009
Easy 2 minute walk.The Team25/05/2009
Loved the little road up from Saxby All Saints. Parked on the road end of the track (tucked out of the way) for the short walk to the top.kaapiovuohi31/08/2008
Very simple, even drove up to the reservoir but the track is VERY BUMPY so don't!!!Nick17/04/2008
Highest point seemed to be on track beyond reservoir.alwaysinshorts22/03/2008
walked round reservoir, very windyjohnfwoolley13/01/2008
A nice evening so took advantage, detoured from the M180. Walked along the unfenced track to the natural high point that is also on the track. The waterboard property has a higher point but it?s a man made reservoir, no access there.Glenelg18/10/2007

Reservoir securely enclosed but easy to walk around. Highest point on track seem beyond the reservoir.signyred13/08/2006
Indeterminate track on track near reservoir and mini wind turbine. Parking tricky but fortunately nearby road is exceptionally quiet. Good views from escarpment edge but none from top.wheresthepath04/12/2005
