Parked up for the night in Brayton then early morning 9.5 mile walk to bag this one. Came from the west through Barlow then had to scale a large barbed wire fence. Not recommendedThe-Z-Man11/04/2019
2nd tump of the day, after Hatfield Colliery. Parked up at the Village circle just outside the Nature Centre entrance. Signed in and then took route up to the top as per grid reference stated, then ventured into the grassy area, all very level plus explored the meadow to the North. Returned on a loop, signed out. Very hot day! Next: Gale Common...Dazingdale05/08/2018
Dry walk around red route wearing wellies which where great for the very muddy initial woodland start to the walk. A very interesting spot..Dugswell208/04/2018
Signed in. Followed red route. Summit, then went to ash disposal viewing platform with magnificent view of Drax. Mostly burning biomass apparently. Signed out.ngthack14/01/2018
Should have read AJ's note. Arrived at 0945 and waited nervously outside locked gates with sign saying - Opening Sat 3rd Jan. (Sat was the 6th) Got in at 1115.GordonAdshead06/01/2018
Quite a unique experience. Signed in and was given the little map card. No dogs. No bikes. Highest point could be anywhere. Saw plenty of wildlife including Roe Deer and a Great Spotted Woodpecker. A great place for a family walk. Good toilet facilities too! Solo.Dangerous Dave26/11/2017

First time I've had to sign in and out for a Tump. Only third visitor of the day at 1PM. interesting enough spot but almost impossible to identify top.Bramley16/09/2017
Tump under construction. Has a very level summit area (using hand level it's all about same level, so provided they keep up the same standard of level control, the summit won't move (unless one feels the need to redefine the centroid)RHW03/09/2017
From E end of Barlow village, car park by gate to 'Skylark Centre and Nature Reserve'. Free but need to sign in (Drax H&S regs.) at office by gate. Given small plastic map of walks, returnable when leaving. Even have their own 'Wildlife Ambulance'! Summit area very flat, extensive, trees blocking line of sight, not sure of highest point. Opening: Every weekend 11.00am - 4.00pm (unless pre-arranged).Aye Jimmy09/07/2017
