Hill Bagging Durham TUMPS on a bike. 5 hills 80k ride. Hid bike in bushes at road bend and walked via ROW over stile and into copse of trees to hill crest.John Lee16/10/2017
On way back from Durham to Penrith, a short detour to enjoy the views, then drive over Darlington's County Top... Lol!nordicstar26/07/2017
Easy to access through wooden gate just south of the 90 degree road bend and up between trees to obvious mound at top. Suggest don't try to access from the footpath to the north (leading from the road bend) as barbed wire and brambles to contend with that way - we tried that and gave up. One of four easy bags today on way from Penrith to Durham.Hillsidenick10/04/2017

Easy parking to east of the footpath (running south of the summit). A short walk along this then cut up to the area of higher ground. Newly planted trees make finding the exact spot quite a challenge, but underfoot it is easy walking.moorsman05/12/2014
