Car park in Flatts Lane Country Park at 552168 - S. up park path for about 100m & then forked left along path to road - Up road for about 100m to fingerpost & start of narrow path through woods - Path joins wide track which provides a pleasant walk to trig point.

From cul-de-sac just in Eston. Ever regretted your NEDD days? Plus duel carriageway, abandoned industries, transmitters and industrial steam. One day after this age, Eston Nab will regain its former glory.Eddie31/03/2016

Parked in Eston. Had to seek local knowledge to find the footbridge. Then steep full frontal ascent past burnt out car, to interesting scramble through headwall crag. Came down a less steep path to south west, past another burnt out car. Fine imposing hill with extensive industrial views.ngthack24/02/2016
Trig is not high point, boulder to SE 14 meters away is higher. Tackled this as others from the Elston housing estate to North. Yes the climb is steep and bike worn but to pleasant evening birdsong. Path is stepped in places but steep and slippery mud in others. Half way up a horizontal 4x4 track goes through, just head on up and the path reforms. Trig, tower and small cairn with sweet momentos. Large flat boulder just beyond. Didn't see a soul, peaceful with a sleepy nightlit Middlesborough below, best time to go up probably...nordicstar30/04/2014
Best described as a litter strewn ascent involving dodging speeding cyclists, the end result being views of the Middlesbrough steelworks from a mound of decaying memorials.moorsman05/04/2014
Eston to Guisborough: Another study of winter lowland landscape from the wind shelter (chimney). Soft & frequently watery snow on the tracks made for hard going.Smudge27/01/2013
After a long walk that included Quarry Hill and Roseberry Topping, this fantastic hill really cheered me up - a great view all the way up the coast to my ancestral homelands...DanHolme31/08/2012
On east side too many Private Roads No Access. Went to Eston and parked just before bridge in estate. Than wooden steps for 1st half then path for remainder.destaylor09/04/2012

I parked in Eston walked over the footbridge and made the short but energetic climb up to the trig. There are remnants of what I took to be a cable car ride half way up and at the top together with a collection of masts.Father Ted10/06/2004
