Found a free 'free' parking bay 80m NW of the summit. Impressive boundary stone.M3WDD15/05/2015
Bushey Heath to Stanmore is said to be where highwaymen such as Dick Turpin lurked ready to raid the dozen or so caravans that passed through Bushey Heath daily, carrying money from trade in London. Fast forward to today and at 10pm at night it still didn't feel like a place to linger.Chris Pearson24/04/2015
Parked car on one of side streets, then a quick walk to the boundary stone.bolieve04/04/2015
With Harrow LB top. Parked in Broadfield Close cul-de-sac. Highest natural(ish) point appears to be near boundary stone on the High Road.webmaster17/02/2015
Grass bank N side of road is highest accessible ground, apparently nothing higher in gardens immediately to N. Further N are several embankments with 155m contours, obviously manmade (resrs?)RHW14/12/2014
What is there to say?Newton Maximus21/11/2014
Parked in pub CP just past the marked top. Wandered around junction, and down for a revisit to the old top Bushey Heath (boundary, still as uninteresting. After Scotland at the weekend the London bagging was quite a contrast...nordicstar22/10/2014
Came to what I thought was the Middlesex top six and a half years ago, but if you're ticking off hills you've got to do things properly...Richard04/10/2014

Back again, hopefully someone doesn't point to another slight change and I have to visit somewhere a minute awaysimon and co28/08/2014
We weren't excited about this county top (number 25) but actually we had a lovely early evening walk. Parked at the end of Old Lodge Way and walked through Bentley Priory Nature Reserve, passing some very tame deer. Admittedly the A4140 is not beautiful - are the high security fences really necessary?? Perhaps the summit (not) is notable for being most boring county top in England, but as said, the walk was delightful (with Dorothy and Helen).callumorr08/08/2014
drive by on the way to coldsmoking course very exciting - Dave was jealousmr bounce07/06/2014

Came down from Coventry to bag this county top. Started near the crossorads and had a wander around, including in and around the new development which seemed to me to be the high point.Father Ted10/06/2012
