|Plenty of vergeside parking south of Harworth on the Styyrup road. Several paths appear to lead upwards through the trees directly from this road, but I stuck to the line of the old conveyer. Three drainage channels have now been cut into this track. Not over difficult to cross for the able bodied, but maybe challenging for the less mobile. About a 10 minute gentle climb.||moorsman||21/01/2020|
|Parking in large lay-by to the SE. SK620900||David Evans||25/03/2019|
|Roadside parking (SK 6207 9029). Direct route up through woodland to an open summit area. Contemplated taking the old conveyor route back to the road, but very muddy so back through the woods.||jonglew||31/12/2018|
|Parked in layby to E then followed tracks through woods past a very technical looking MTB track to break onto summit area. Highest point pretty obviously to NW of concrete track where I presume the conyevor stood.||Wheelsy||19/10/2018|
|Lots of keep out signs. Found gap in hedge to north onto bike track but ended up going through wood to west and up field edge to top.||Mark Sims||27/04/2017|
|Parked on main road and followed mountain bike trail to top.||Ramblingpaul||05/11/2016|
|Solo. Same route as Aye Jimmy - easy. Felt better being out of sight!||Dangerous Dave||22/07/2016|
|Saw a deer and squirrel. Nature coming back.||Dusty||23/05/2016|
|With Adrian & Smudge. First of four Notts completion hills. Up as AJ, down conveyor route. Unusually, don't recommend AJ's route up.||ngthack||23/04/2016|
|Extensive views from the summit.||Adrian||23/04/2016|
|Strrrup to Harworth to link up with NT & AR. Colliery building in background of AJ's photo is now partially demolished.||Smudge||23/04/2016|
|Up concrete track. Tested various high points with the Garmin. I reckon the ridge to the right of the track at its high point is the highest by a couple of metres. No one about. Good view.||Moorponder||22/03/2016|
|Parked at cross roads and used the constant gradient conveyor track to summit. Will no doubt improve over time as the planted trees establish themselves. Wasn't challenged re Keep Out sign. No harm in a quick up and down.||Campbell Singer||05/02/2016|
|parked in lay-by on Blyth Road, path of sorts up to grassed area then on to top, down metalled path to road junction||Bramley||18/01/2016|
|1st of three hills climbed today with Lexi Rue, my partner's Labradoodle.We took a bus into Nottingham, Train to Worksop and 25 bus to Harworth, getting off at crossroads at foot of ex conveyor. We hopped over stone blocks and climbed up easily to summit. Horses grazing in pasture to West. We followed edge of plantings Nw to reach road overA1(M) to Styrrup then followed B6643 to Oldcotes and A60 to edge of Langold.||Dazingdale||05/12/2015|
|From Manchester: 173 miles to visit the two new Tumps in Notts and Rotherham. NW side of hill - fences and horses. Parked at cross roads and easily walked up line of old conveyor.||GordonAdshead||16/09/2015|
|Obvious old incline had 'private' notices up so started from layby to E with survey rivet and yellow disk in pavement at SK 62074 90288. Crossed road, old fence, ditch into wood. Old mountain bike downhill course led up to track and field with summit not far away.||Aye Jimmy||15/09/2015|
|Summit 81m, SK 61714 90377 horizontal accuracy reported as 3m. Grass, no feature.
Saddle visited the previous Fri eve (convenient brief traffic jam), north end of A1 (M) cutting
24m, acc 3m, SK 61091 90793
This suggests p57. However top of nearby bridge over motorway this eve read 31m, acc 4m, and I doubt if the cutting is quite 7m deep, so perhaps not quite p57, but consistent with the 24m reading within expected level of accuracy for non survey grade GPS. Pretty much as expected from contours on openstreetmap and Google.
The hill is grass on n and w slopes, a few horses on one section; some trees on other slopes.
The conveyor featured on Geograph and such a familiar landmark of many A1 journeys, has vanished without trace.||RHW||06/09/2015|
