Small walk through beets ;)Janko08/09/2018
This is so different. It barely rises above sea level. Remarkably peaceful. Parked at the sluice cp and headed south and cut across ploughed field, over levee and along newly trimmed embankment. Came back along to the sluice gate but the embankment appears to have been privatised.Campbell Singer16/03/2018
From parking at sluice gates. Field edge then along drain. Drain bank recently cut making life easier.rhalstead20/01/2018
Good parking at Sluice Gates to corner of field, only short stubble now easy crossing to top. Back to ROW and down other side of river bank then to pub.dgresty17/10/2017

County top outing,I got to the grid reference which seems to be on the edge of a farmers field although higher ground may be found in a dense mound of brambles. I like county tops but not enough to pick a fight with a bramble bush the size of a garden shed!WAYNE ROWLETT28/05/2017

very brambly near official top in fields so went back to footpath on opposite bank (3metres higher but obviously man made). Met one of the local boatmen (drainer) who found it hard to believe it was 8m above sea level ...his guess was2-3m maxkeithelliott13/10/2016
Good parking to N, then used gerrybowes' approach route, thanks! Summit adorned with daffs at moment.Aye Jimmy23/03/2016

Came in from the car park to the north.walked down the footpath and across field.not really a top as I presume it is all man madeDARRENG22/09/2015

A tough hill this - only 8m high but the crop comes right up to the edge of the field - so I had to walk in the thistle/nettle/bramble filled field margin ditch. There is currently no path on the embankment and lots of unpleasant/impassible vegetation. From the summit I could see the tractor tracks and I was able to use these to return to my car without damage to crop (peas).M3WDD03/07/2015
Growing peas this year.andrew brown23/06/2015
As per previous summitters: from N, round W end of houses, followed field edge back NE, picked up good path to E side of embankment then good track beside river to summit. Oddly the OS 8m spot height on 1:10k seems currently to be another 200m further SE although the point in question is at normal ground level, 2m lower than the highest point. At first light Sun a.m. although a fair bit of dog walking activity on opposite bank, probably from the householders but if so no-one said anything.RHW21/12/2014

Interesting but was it worth a 60 mile detour?Newton Maximus01/06/2014
It may be the lowest high points in the UK but was certainly one of the most difficult in terms of access. Access via bank on west side of Vernatt's drain blocked by private residence at Vernatt's bridge, so viewed from east bank. Did access from west from farm track along Blue Gowt Drain, then followed tractor tracks across Cauliflower field.SteveSmith08/04/2014
Walked around edge of field to the Welland then upstream to the obvious high point.bolton28/01/2014
Parking area on south side of the sluice in Surfleet Seas End – WSW along lane for about 100m until end of row of houses – Drop down into field and follow edge of field at the back of houses until you reach the embankment – Climb up and over embankment – SSW alongside Vernatt’s Drain for about 500m – Climb up embankment and select the highest of a number of small mounds.

County top no.44. Train to Spalding (via Peterborough) and bus to Surfleet, then out and back walk via Surfleet Seas End and Vernatt's Bridge to the east bank of Vernatt's Drain. Based on previous entries I reckoned that the most interesting way of bagging this top was by viewing it from the Fenland footpath running down the narrow strip of land between the River Welland and Vernatt's Drain. A sunny autumn day (temp 16 deg C. Walked 6.0 miles; time 2:12; 118 feet. climbalan.65to7017/10/2013

Lovely day for a long walk by the Glem and Welland rivers and associated fenland banks and fields. Lots of cabbages in the mud. Top is in on edge of riverbank in a field. Marie and Benmcf05/01/2013
Way up from @pboro to Lincoln. Quick bag in dusk, as per Signyred, to track and along to GPS grid Ref. Not obviously highpoint but collected. Nice pint in Ship Inn afterwards!nordicstar20/12/2012
No access from north Private signs. Could follow field edge from 27968 29188. Bit messy and long grass. GPS gave field as -10m and top as -2m! Didn't much like the place. Easy parking.destaylor15/11/2012
Nothing wrong with these odd 'tops'. They take you to places you would never bother with. Surfleet Seas End is well worth a wander around.simon and co08/11/2011
Too much agriculture going on to trespass across the field. Stared wistfully at hump from footpath to the east. Quite frankly the high point could be anywhere.Overthehilljill13/06/2011
I visited Hill Marsh Farm TF 26320 27615 (mound in cauliflower field) which has an 8m spot height on my 1996 LR131 and I believe was once regarded as the CoHP. Having got up to date on hill-bagging I guess I'd better visit this embkt sometime as it has a current 1:25k 8m spot height and seems fashionable nowadays ...RHW05/12/2009

Followed the route previously described and up onto the embankment. There is a little mound near given coordinates making it the country top. Big sky views.Father Ted09/03/2008

Go S past houses from TF279292 car park & round edge of crop fields to the near embankment as there's no access to this from the NE. Can't believe I struggled to reach this spot but the blackberries growing near made up for a soaking in a summer gale.signyred13/08/2006
We found 3 places where the GPS showed 8m. (1) Mound at Spalding TF 26514 23872, (2)Surfleet Seas End (Reservoir Road) TF 27917 29338 & (3) Surfleet Seas End Dyke as per other entries. All rubbish tops. There's probably loads more - what a silly county!wheresthepath23/07/2005
Hmm. Not very distinct. It could be anywhere. My view is that Lincolnshire is one county and therefore has one top (not this one!)mikejacobs30/12/1996
