Verge parking (NZ 3638 5122). As others, followed curving field boundary to top. HP near shipping containers.jonglew31/08/2019
As others, up the side of the field. Starts underneath the bigger of the two sets of electricity pylons. Easy, except for having to loiter for 40 minutes for the clay pigeon shooting to finish.PGCE24/07/2019
Parked in lay-by and ran up the edge of the field.madaddo28/09/2018
Parked on grass verge. Took the wide pasture edge round the field edge to the top.Campbell Singer22/05/2018
AJ's route to the rough ground and thistles at the summit by the metal sheds. The HP in the copse behind the sheds seemed to be as high.Nick Down122/02/2018
A little circle- wound my way up the wrong field edge and cam down the filed with the wide marginMark Sims10/05/2017
From the north, followed field edge all the way, no problem with thistles. HP in arable field.PeterD09/04/2017
Easier access than expected (from layby just past farm entrance), but not the most pleasant walking today - towards the top of the field it was mostly tall thistles!the_adam25/10/2016
From N - 10m wide field margins snake to top.jimbloomer30/07/2016

From north. Curving field edge to green metal containers. Think they are something to do with clay pigeon shooting. Direct line back as no crops in field.ngthack25/02/2016
By field edge to rough thistle area to HP near large metal haulage container with rape seed crop nearby. Lost GPS (had it since 2006).arranc24/06/2015
Easy up from the road.simon and co21/05/2015
As AJ. Steady climb up field edge. Seemed most likely high point to me.GordonAdshead11/03/2015
From N, followed curving field edge round past pylon and up to near metal sheds on top. Summit maybe about 15m out into cabbage(?) field.Aye Jimmy30/12/2014
From parking by gate at North on main road. The wood is a sparse copse. Easily up side of this and break out onto hill over rough unploughed ground to summit.nordicstar11/12/2014
From Houghton-Le-Spring via the B1404 (this is a bus route), then up the private road to the farm. You'll have to do some field trespass in order to get this one - thick fog helped me to bag the top without being spotted.Richard15/09/2014
Parked on the minor road to the north then walked across a stubble field then field edge to summit.Dugswell231/08/2014
Grim grim grim. Easily reached from paking opposite karting centre on public footpathmcbiydw226/03/2014
When visited the field and the summit were under crops. Decided to get as close as possible without damaging any produce.moorsman18/08/2013
Parked near the karting centre to the south east and approached via Warden Law. Farm dogs not very welcoming.Newton Maximus20/03/2013
Probably best from just near the power lines to the N. Wide field edges. Absolute summit may be under crops but at field edge maybe 20m away to N you are easily higher.destaylor23/06/2012
Clem bagging. From north, field edges under power lines. I spied what looked like higher land east at Warden Law karting centre so drove round there and followed path up onto bank. Hard to say which is higher.Chris Pearson06/05/2012
No sign of spoilheap so I decided the trees were the top.Nick22/06/2011
Up from the road to the east across fields of winter wheat. The ridge before the grid ref seemed the highest point to me or maybe it was near the trees a bit further on. All much of a muchness, unlike Hartlepool's top!signyred28/02/2011
Would agree with Ted that the spoil heap very close to were the trigpoint use to stand is higher than the given grid ref,no problems walking over to check the other grid ref,for what it's worth the GPS shows over 20 feet difference.asbown14/03/2009
Parked at entrance to farm and walked south down bridleway to Warden Law, a spoil heap, first and realised that this was higher than given grid refs so took this as being county top. Fields were being ploughed and sewn so did not fancy hassle.Father Ted16/10/2008
Drove along track and parked at farm then walked round edge of fields to top was followed all the way by a nice labrador dog who wanted to play fetch.chris creedy29/09/2007
Can park on verge at NZ 362 513. High point in SW corner of huge, bizarre-shaped field - can access through plentiful gaps in hedge. As dull as the rest of the tops in the area.wheresthepath08/07/2006
edge of arable field, wide unexciting +/- urban view, accessed at night. e.g. from rd/gateway to NW RHW17/11/2002
