Parked up by the entrance to Hanby House. The high point seemed to be around here or even slightly further north up the lane.Wheelsy26/07/2016
1st of the last Three Leicestershire tumps. After visiting Woolsthorpe Manor (on the 350th birthday of Isaac Newton's birth). We (my mum and her friend Joyce) drove to Buckminster. I parked just outside the Tollemache Inn and proceeded to investigate the village for high points and reckon the highest point is near the Beech tree next to track (with old water pump in the corner with business offices just behind including village hall) just opposite from where we parked. The crossroads looks pretty flat. This is a pretty village. We continued onwards to Waltham-on-the-wolds.Dazingdale03/04/2016
At E end of village is crossroads, School Lane leads off here; about 150m up lane at slight bend seemed possibly higher than road through village.Aye Jimmy23/03/2016
Got out of van, wandered around, got back in again. Leicestershire completion, should have picked a better one than this.ngthack14/02/2016
Well having just bagged the hilltop village of Bringhurst at sunset and enjoyed walking round the churchyard, I just wondered if theremight be another village top rump on my route back to theA1 and I spied Buckminster hill!! What a bizarre and unsatisfactory bag. Arriving on darkness, there's not even any hint of falling ground anywhere. It's just totally flat. I had hoped that there might be a pub to stop for a drink or bite to eat but the local watering hole was actually closed 8.30 on a Sunday evening. Dead, dark, flat, village, distinctly untumping.vegibagger13/09/2015
