Went to high point (corner of field near beacon) after HAVOC orienteering event.CXB03/11/2019
From Beacon Hill car park, thought highest point was towards top right-hand corner of recreation field, near gap through to road. Then along to the Boundary.Aye Jimmy11/08/2019
After Langdon Hill boundary, on a circuit from Laindon station. The grass at the corner of the playing field near the cut through to High Road by the Dry Lane junction seemed highest after a wander along Dry Lane and back through the playing field.Nick Down130/07/2019

Parked in Beacon car park then bagged Langdon Hill, the water tower and Langdon Hill (boundary) CoU.Dugswell205/03/2017
Parked in the Beacon Car Park for a wander round the area. HP could be on the playing fields, but very subjective. Walked on to the Langdon Hill (boundary) CoU.jonglew31/07/2016
From Laindon station via lovely Marks Hill Nature Reserve and Westley Heights. Felt like the highest point was in the middle of the big field SW of the mast (which is open access).Mark Jackson06/06/2016
Pleasant country park. Not sure of exact location of top so covered a number of points while walking around the park. On foot from Laindon Stationtrimarc216/03/2016

Parked in Beacon car park and Wandered round onto pub and back along road.PeterD08/12/2015
Parked at road junction just to south west, walked down to lovely old church to west, to then climb back up at least 30m as I insist on doing when doing tumps. Carried on past another church to the summit, which could be the road/ verges or grass in the park. Pretty sure the highest point was the grass in the corner of the park near the road.pdantic15/07/2015
Langdon means ‘Long Hill’. The Country Park sits on a 385ft high crescent shaped hilly ridge, giving panoramic views over the Thames Estuary and across to London. The five rangers help to maintain the park and act as visitor guides. As at Feb 2015 Thurrock council's proposal is to have one ranger and an apprentice to save £100,000. I did a short loop taking in both tops. The tall beacon was full of wood and ready to be lit - seems early if for the 70th anniversary of VE day in May as still 2 month away?Chris Pearson11/03/2015
Summit could be anywhere. Go for the road or grass myself. Had a pleasant wander around.destaylor12/03/2014
