3rd L Borough top of the day. The house at the top being rebuilt so the summit photo needs to change.pclyndes31/05/2020
30 km cycle from BatterseaRockdoctor16/05/2020
2nd tump after Batchworth Heath using series of fp's that run relatively directly from Batchworth Heath (sometimes coralled between houses) with large trees even growing in the middle. Walked to Res.gates and even checked land inside as reservoir could be covering highest natural ground. Climbing out was more difficult! Continuation to Bushey Heath...Dazingdale19/01/2020
Walked up to top as road closedBramley29/08/2019
Travelcard Tump- Metro line train from Kingsbury to Northwood Hills, walk/ run up Potter St Hill, HP, gloomy fp then broad avenues to Northwood sta. I wonder if ever I ran up here with the Metros running club. I remember they took delight in the hills round here, and the way we made all the big houses' security lights (mandatory in Northwood?) come on, on evening runs.pwheeler01/08/2019
Jaunt around London to mop up a few hills. Walked up from Northwood Hills station (about 20 mins). Some money in them there hills that's for sure.jedthehumanoid29/06/2019
Last of the day on a 31mile cycle round from Watford in heat and sunshine. High point either on the private road or at reseroir gates, all easily accessible.RichardM29/06/2019
bagged while cycling from shenley to south oxhey along with bathcworth heath and shenley hillThe-Z-Man12/06/2019
Decided to drive up the road as the rain was cold. Top was adorned with a golf course, school and many big houses and fieldsChinnockC19/01/2019
London marker post is fun. 30km run Rickmansworth to Ikea Wembley via Batchworth Heath, Potter Street Hill, Harrow on the Hill, Sudbury, Horsenden Hill and Hanger Lane.Fionalevey09/12/2018
Walked from Northwood Hill tube: an enjoyable walk with a sustained gradient. Visited the white boundary marker and reservoir gates.Nick Down110/10/2018
Approach from south. London marker post still there.arranc28/06/2018
Walked therough the woods from Oxhey Woods car park. A pleasant ten minute stroll each way.clivevilla26/05/2018
From the Oxhey South Drive cp. Some very posh property.Campbell Singer29/03/2018
Simple drive up and get out...rhalstead28/01/2018
I drove to the top of Potter Hill Road where there was just enough room to turn around then had a walk about to bag the reservoir and the boundary marker.Dugswell206/03/2017
Drove down Sandy Lane from NW. By reservoir gates. Also visited the post.PeterD27/11/2016
A pleasant mile uphill from Northwood Hills station. So refreshing to have to walk up hill to a top in London. The presence of the City of London Coal Duty post near the top was an added bonus. I felt the top was by the gate of the reservoir.Sixtyplus10/11/2016

3hr walk from Northwood to Stanmore. Lovely path all the way from Batchworth Heath. Top is unassuming junction.Mark Jackson12/08/2016
Old marker post is probably where the boundaries of Hertfordshire and London boroughs of Hillingdon and Harrow meet, and if so is Hillingdon's highest point. However Tump summit is 50-100m to N, on private road (open to walkers), alongside covered reservoir - summit is flat and much of the ground is manmade.AlanD26/05/2016
Parked at car park to the north near entrance to Oxhey Drive. Descended to Ashridge Drive then reascended partly via Oxhey woods then took trail through woods as far as reservoir, then turned right to get to the private road beside the reservoir, highest point either on road beside a house or a grass bank on other side of road beside reservoir, lovely walk back through woods to car past an interesting wood sculpture.pdantic01/04/2016

Drove down Sandy Lane, to reservoir gates.jonglew04/12/2015
One and half hr evening walk from Northwood Hill tube (after Wembley tops).Gated mansions with security cameras - then passing Northwood military HQ -home to a bewildering range of functions;1) Joint Forces Command (2) the Permanent Joint Headquarters (3) the Multi National Headquarters (4) the Commander Operations for the Royal Navy and (v) the NATO Allied Maritime Command. Hope they know who is who. Footpath led through housing to a dusk foray onto the Batchwood Heath golf course for Tump high point and a speedy exit around the greens direct down to Moor Park tube pleasingly at the outer limit of my Zone 6 Travel Card.Chris Pearson29/06/2015
From Sandy lane. Took the white post as the top.bolieve04/04/2015
Got lost getting here but come down from north via Sandy Lane. Parking may be restricted here in near future but that's OK as there's nothing to see here but the old London tax limit marker post.Nick18/01/2015
Drove in from S. In terms of the P30, resr gate is highest accessible point and ground appears to be level (and obviously manmade) beyond to N and E.RHW14/12/2014
Short amble through Oxhey Wood from the car parksqueegs22/03/2014
Parked at top easy enough. Nothing of interest except the old metal boundary marker.Hillsidenick21/07/2013
Sandy Lane is the road in (to six acres) for say navs. Junction by WB fence and old boundary marker is good enough. Dreadful photo of the road furniture spoils an otherwise commendable boundary marker.nordicstar05/02/2013
Visited With Darren while trying to visit all the high points on London in one day.magirob10/01/2013
'Bagged' this, erm, hill as part of 5 north London borough tops whilst on my way to the 2012 Xmas party. More accurately, got out of car at assumed highest point and then drove off again.RichieRambler06/12/2012
What a palava getting to this one. Make sure you set your sat nav to approach from Potter Street Hill as everything else is private.simon and co09/10/2012
Last "long distance" bike trip from Kew. A particularly nice habiated area to the sout east. Prvate and CCTV cameras, but was stil possible to rool down from the summit on a bike in the dark and enjoy the view.NilsOS11/10/2010
Highest point probably at the welcome to the borough signpost. You can pretty much drive all the way up to it from the S. A poor way to end our Borough Top bagging run.wheresthepath21/02/2010
Walked via Oxhey woods and ended up at Ruislip woods.Overthehilljill20/10/2009
The tall fencing of the footpath to the west is collapsing onto the path mid way down.Smudge13/04/2008
