After completing Bramcote Hill. Walked from Bramcote Hills Car Park and crossed the main road. Straight up path to the summit Trig Point. Good views from the top although slightly obscured by the trees. On the way back I visited the unusual Hemlock Stone. It had started to rain a little on my descent which was a shame.Neil Haslewood22/07/2017

From Bramcote Hill. Nice little summit with trig, drizzle and low cloud didn't give a view. Back down pass the stone, which I had only read about on BBC website earlier in week. Never expecting to see it, so soon.PeterD29/10/2015
The highlight here of this popular wooded hill with many paths is the Hemlock Stone pinnacle, believed cause by quarrying.Black grime from industrial air pollution coats the top bulging half made of more resistant Nottingham Castle Sandstone,but there is no black grime on the softer Lenton Sandstone below which is being eroded by wind action much quicker. A bonfire was lit on top of the stone to celebrate the Queen's jubilee in 2002 !Chris Pearson08/08/2015
From the A6002 side, lots of tracks through wood, best hill of the day and the only one with a well defined summit! Never even saw the Hemlock Stone though.Aye Jimmy20/05/2015

Wooded hill in urban area, mountain biker zone.Adrian28/09/2014
I've been here quite a few times but this is the official log. This day I climbed Burnt Hill and Bramcote hill (vague summit. After climbing Bramcote Hill I crossed over Coventry lane which was strangely closed due to a burst water main and headed along the footpath but veered off before it went past the Hemlock stone. I nearly got run over by a mountain biker zipping past me. Its a short scramble to the top. Stapleford hill has lots of hollows and sandstone outcrops so is well worth a visit for variety and I have seen Woodpeckers here in the past. Nice views from the Trig. It was getting dark but i got some pretty shots looking out towards Trowell and the Erewash valley. I picked up two empty lager cans for recycling! Returned via Bramcote park to retrieve my bike.Dazingdale16/11/2013
Lovely summit, trig is on a natural platform of Nottingham Castle Sandstone. On the way back down, passed the Hemlock Stone, which I'm pleased hasn't made it on to any hill lists as I don't fancy the scramble.DanHolme15/06/2013
