Round of 8 hills, cycling from Nottingham (90km). Early start and beautiful weather. Robin Hood's Hill, Herrod's Hill, Newton Lane, Newton Lane (Boundary), Silverhill, Mansfield woodhouse Colliery, Anne Bower Hill, Mansfield Hill.Nicky C15/05/2020
Nest Avenue possibly, although couldn't resist accessing the old covered resr compound for the trig pillar.jonglew20/07/2019
Contractors well on with building large new reservoir on SE side of hill. Well run site office where permission to visit trig pillar on old redundant reservoir given - partly escorted. Impressed to meet with such a helpful and common sense approach.RichardM15/01/2019
5 of 7 on brilliant 37.3 mile bike ride. Enjoyed this one. Including Mansfield colliery, silverhill, newton Wood Lane and the boundary, robin hoods hill, Mansfield hill and welbeck colliery. Noticed there didnít seem to be any workers around but plenty of vans. Snuck through and opened gate to reach summit trig. Stealth modeThe-Z-Man28/09/2018
Gates to STW company locked when I arrived. Went around to Nest Crescent alsodazedemon13/05/2018
bagged in passing.simonshrewsbury01/04/2018
Fortunately two guys from the reservoir compound just came out and opened the gate and were quite happy for me to go in to the top of the reservoir to view the pillar.vegibagger08/02/2018
Result! Was driving past on the way to bag some hills near Nottingham and noticed the gates to the compound were open. Parked up nearby and wandered in to trig point on top of second reservoir. Severn Trent worker was sat in a van nearby and must of seen me but probably couldn't be bothered to get out because it was chucking it down. In and out of compound in less than a minute anyway.Wheelsy05/01/2018
Visited various contenders for high point.David Evans27/12/2017
Didn't try entering the locked compound. It seems to me that the high point is either on Nest Avenue or the verge of Diamond Avenue. It would be difficult to tell without measuring, but little would be gained other than pedantic knowledge !Moorponder25/03/2017
Looks like this one might be subject to change.ngthack06/03/2016
Could be the HP of Nest Avenue.Campbell Singer02/02/2016
2nd hill today with my partner's Labradoodle, Lexi Rue, after climbing Ramsdale Hill nr Calverton, we took a long route via Sansom wood then into old railway cutting for a mile before taking the Robin Hood wayto B683 through estate to Linby, Linby trail, Newstead then country park to A611 Cutting across field to compounded area. Walked alongside and then back to road and up Diamond avenue to view area through gates. Went up Nest avenue to highest point. I wouldnt be surprised if highest point lay further N in the Coxmoor plantation!Dazingdale18/01/2016
Main road with high point and trig inaccessible inside fenced compound. High point could however well be on main road or adjacent side road. The name -a popular Nottinghamshire theme - seems to apply to the steeper slopes rising up from the SE in Newstead Eco Country Park (reclaimed form old coal mining spoil)Chris Pearson08/08/2015
No entry today; took pictures of the front gates and visited Nest Crescent.Aye Jimmy22/05/2015
Early morning fog meant an 'explore' in the reservoir was possible, but to be honest the roads to the west - Nest Avenue / Crescent - seem equally high. Not a great enough hill for me to spend any more time on.DanHolme31/12/2014
Agree with Adrian, quite a few candidates. We need to discover a trimblaholic based in England if we're ever going to find a definitive answerBramley09/10/2014
Viewed resr. compound and trig from adjoining house - resident allowed me to view from bedroom window.carole engel09/09/2014
Various candidates. Main road may have it but also waterboard area and Nest Avenue.Adrian21/07/2014
