On own. As others along track from W. past water tower and into open field with sign indicating Askham College land to obvious mound. Then to trig point on lane and back. Not sure why initial gate from minor road is securely padlocked with CCTV sign and anti vandal paint as OS Map inicates green dot meaning 'other routes with public access'.Beeliner11/08/2019
As others, from the west. A late evening visit.PGCE20/07/2019

Visited en route to a family Christmas gathering in a near-by pub.summitter17/12/2017
Parked at white houses a few mts from start of track. Along track and into field. Interesting water tower which could be a converted windmill. Could this be the hp and not the field? From there to excellent Christmas market in York for the afternoon with Barbara. Brownie points accumulated.Campbell Singer03/12/2017
Prior to an afternoon's visit to York's excellent Christmas market.Barbara Singer03/12/2017
A 10 minute return from the gate to the west of the mast. A clear high area to the NW of he trig. Solo.bolton28/11/2017
13 bus from York station to Copmanthorpe, then a quick walk to bag it. I don't recommend doing it this way as you have to cross a very busy road. Best to park at the Buckles Inn at the foot of the hill.Richard17/03/2017
From W into a geegee cross country event - summit on the route by a fence (type the horses jump over)jimbloomer08/10/2016

Having driven past this 400+ times I walked to the summit from Buckles Inn. Straightforward.JohnStoneham20/03/2016

A walk around two small so-called hills in the Vale of York, sunny, cold breeze. made a walk out it by visiting the three local villages, Bilbrough & the 2 Askhams.joseph mitchell17/02/2015
Did it on the way back to York from visiting the Battlefield of Towton 1461.clivevilla29/12/2014
Mound in field; base of fine old stonebuilt water tower to W feels as high although no map evidence.RHW29/11/2014
5 minute walk up the track to the field. Can not miss the high point.bolieve24/08/2014
Easy parking at end of track to west, near mast. Although no RoW on map, stile by gate to enter land and no keep out signs. Easy access into field with obvious summit mound. Trig is lower in lane itself. Muddy.Hillsidenick24/05/2014
Easy walk up lane from road just as it started to rain.catman22/03/2014
Easy 300m walk up lane from WSW past water tower and mast. Gate into field with raised section ahead, half buried stone may be highest point. Trig in lane.Aye Jimmy28/03/2013
Can park for a short period at the western end of the lane leading to the trig point (Lane widens out enough to create a pull-in). From the trig point the raise in the field to the north appears higher, however, from this raise the trig point .........You pays your money and takes your choice. Total bagging time from the road is about 10 minutes.moorsman18/12/2012
Flying visit on journey south. Bump in field highest, alongside the minster can also see the York 'eye'. Fine day between showers.nordicstar11/09/2012
Torrential rain and nowhere practical to park so content with a relay over the two gates and up the lane towards the agricultural college.Newton Maximus10/07/2012
Short walk down a country lane, had to climb over 2 gates.Craftinessa29/10/2011
Just outside York down a country Lane.swampysean29/10/2011
Visited water tower, bum and trig. Base of tower probably higher but maybe man made.garyhoney04/08/2011
're-visit having first been here about15 years back and taken a pic looking precarious as the trig is leaning slightly.vegibagger17/07/2011
Visited on bike ride to bag trig as well.stever26/06/2011
Parked by gate at west end of track and walked to the trig point. Diverted onto the mound in the field as this was higher. Good starting point would have been the pub on the A64 for easy parking and a drink afterwards.... it's a long long walk, honest!Nick23/06/2011
The track near the summit is not actually a right of way but seemed well used.outdoorgirl05/06/2011
Obvious bump in the field behind the triangulation pillar (S1512). York Minster could be seen in the distance.yorkie29/05/2011
Lump in field past the water tower. Park to the south west and walk up the track. Bit boring.simon and co24/05/2011

As bumps in fields go this one was ok,trig as an added bonus for those of us that way inclined.asbown14/03/2009
Drove down the track until it _really_ turned bad, then tucked the car into the side and jogged the rest.kaapiovuohi30/08/2008
trig and water towerjohnfwoolley13/01/2008
Bump in field definitely higher than trig; not sure about ground around the base of the water tower.signyred22/07/2007
Trig wandering from TaddyMac.Hawk02/05/2006
We made the water tower at SE 54240 47220 higher than either the trig or the bump in field. Existing hole in water tower fence afforded access.wheresthepath04/12/2005
