1/4. Drive from Hertfordshire to Dorset on a very wet day: all 4 were easy bags with a minimal amount of time spent out of the car! East Burnham Park, Bassett Avenue, Ringwood Road, Corfe Hills.PGCE08/02/2019
Quiet drive down the M1 and round the M25. Most unusual. Does Slough get any better than the hp? Probably not.Campbell Singer16/11/2017
Parked nearby, short walk to junction and surroundings. On way back from meeting.PeterD06/06/2017
Yep, detour to tick box. Slough was looking lovely as I crawled through on a bright Saturday morning!KC08/04/2017
A quick detour after Shrubs Hill and Fultness Wood Hill on a quiet Thursday afternoon.Dugswell203/11/2016
Another one solely for the bagger.clivevilla26/08/2016
This is hardly worth getting out of the car. Junction of two roads. Solo.bolton24/05/2016
Parked opposite and took short walk after dodging shower.Ramblingpaul25/04/2016
A slight detour on the way to Wexham Park Hospital from Slough station. A generally pleasant walk except for the parts of Park Road with no footpath. The top is a bit underwhelming but they can't all be spectacular.Sixtyplus04/03/2016
Parked next to it and stood on the highest bit of grassr.ashwell21/02/2016
Bike from Burnham Station. Farnham Lane is an unpleasant bike ride due to it being a busy narrow road. Returned through Slough Trading Estate which is not picturesque but does feel safer for cycling. Top is at junction with Crown Lanetrimarc201/12/2015
4/8 Fourth one on Bad weather day so county tops bagging for the day, (Park Lane/Ashley Hill/Bowsey Hill/East Burnham Park/Pavis Wood/Whitehill/Bow Brickhill/The Slipe)Fergalh24/10/2015
Circumnavigated telegraph pole.ngthack25/08/2015
Driveby. Too embarrassed to get out of car ;-)RHW28/06/2015
Further west from this grassy wide verge of the Slough Unitary Authority Top is Burnham where Mike Ashley grew up. He is the UK billionaire (15th richest person in Britain) who never gives interviews -Britain's answer to the late Howard Hughes. He is the owner of Sports Direct(which owns the likes of the Karrimor brand) and he owns Newcastle United (watches from the terraces along with the fans). Apparently his parents still live in a modest bungalow in Burnham, although he is believed to live in Hertfordshire.Chris Pearson14/06/2015
Short walk from village hall. No reason to visit other than to tick it.rhalstead28/02/2015
Short diversion off M4 en-route to West London to bag this underwhelming CoU. No saying exactly where HP is located. Wandered around the area briefly.jonglew06/12/2014
Drive by at road junction. 14.50.arranc16/11/2014
Took a break from the M4 jam.squeegs17/08/2014
Dog poo bin still there.Newton Maximus05/05/2014
took a selfie by the poo bin!mcallmar16/03/2014
Did as a drive by after visiting family.steverd16/06/2013
\"Bagged\" the poo-bin and the telegraph pole just in case. Didn\'t stay long as better things to do. Top is actually quite a nice area for Slough. At least the parking was easy.Hillsidenick28/04/2013
Rather dismal third gear bagsimon and co03/12/2012
On way back to hotel from a county top running sesh. Drove this one, parked at lane junction (risky) and dained to get out briefly, seems a high spot although limited reference points.nordicstar24/10/2012
Parked outside houses, jumped out and walked to dog poo bin and telegraph pole, took photo, returned to car. It was raining. Nice.Biffin09/04/2012
Visited the telegraph pole and dog bin, also visited the high point of Long Readings Lane near junction with Upper Lees Road which looks equally as high to me.garyhoney16/07/2011
On my way to do field work at Gerrard's Cross. I think the council put the dog poo bin in the wrong place and it's the telegraph pole that's at the highest point. Pity, a dog poo bin would have been just the summit that Slough deserves.Herbert Anchovy05/05/2011
A DAMP DAY ON THE WAY TO THE CHILTERN KANTER. NIPPED OUT OF THE CAR AND WANDERED ROUND THE TELEGRAPH POLE AND DOG POO BIN OPPOSITE THE ROAD JUNCTION.BURGESS26/02/2011
Did what Nick did and parked outside the houses before nipping across verge and exploring the t junction in detail.Father Ted15/01/2011
Delightful views to be had of Slough power station from this one...Richard27/11/2010
Pulled up outside houses, walked across the grass verge and road to the junction to be sure. Took 2 minutes (hot day!) and then I was off to the next one!Nick23/05/2010
One of the more pointless tops. Parked at Burnham Beaches.Overthehilljill21/03/2010
drive by and jump out after makaton training coursemr bounce18/01/2010
1st of the day, not very exciting but at least no effort required.asbown13/07/2009
Probably the middle of the road - busy at rush hour.destaylor02/03/2009
High point on Farnham Lane next to telegraph poleFat Bloke15/02/2009
Stood by the telegraph pole opposite Crown Lane.Dog poo bin has been nicked.Nice verge.electricratman08/04/2007
The highest spot seems to be the grassy verge outside the house "Rugged Elms" but, if the boundary runs down the middle of the road, it ain't Slough!signyred23/08/2006
By the dog poo bin, we reckoned - not the most inspiring of tops!wheresthepath29/09/2004
