A long day out.pclyndes08/05/2020
Main road by cemetery.CreakingHiker05/11/2019
Walked along Whalebone lane from McDonalds Top was a bit obscure so we walked around the area on the grassy opening.ChinnockC04/10/2019
Just off road on W side for me: little clearing with short grass, surrounded by bushes.Aye Jimmy08/09/2019
An evening walk from the bus stop at Whalebone North, along the west side of the A1112, the grassy bank between that road and Kingston Hill Avenue and as far as two gates barring access to the ground around the Warren Stone. The grassy bank between the A road and Kingston Hill Avenue seems highest and is adjacent to and above the brow of the A1112.Nick Down121/03/2019
An add on after Cabin Hill and Lambourne Hill. Not a lot to say. Not the most exciting of tops. Again difficult to pinpoint.Sixtyplus09/10/2018
Deadly dull.. Road quiet at 06.15 on a Sunday morning although the car booters were massing a kilometre to the north.Campbell Singer05/08/2018
Traffic jams in both directions. walked to a few of potential HPs, favoured mound just to west of road in a path triangle amonst a few trees. As with rest of land to west of road probably man made.PeterD18/12/2017
Main road looks best bet. Went to cemetery top as well.Bramley17/11/2017

Parked in Chadwell Heath cemetery to S. HP probably on the road, but small landscaped mound on E side road between A1112 and Kingston Hill Ave is higher, but is it man-made? Took my GR there anyway.jonglew04/07/2016

45 minute walk from Newlands Park Underground station. A dull hill to end the year ontrimarc228/12/2015
Rubbish drive byMark Sims21/04/2015
A night time halt on a deserted wide empty main roadChris Pearson11/03/2015
1) Landscaped bank W side of main road, 2) raised level area N side of cemetery (artificial, reservoir-like), 3) various landscaped fenced level areas E side of road (quarry being restored) - main road itself seems to cross natural highpoint.RHW14/12/2014
Very dull, up the bank by the roadside.simon and co26/02/2014
Drove into cemetery entrance, easy walk to high point in N end and/or bank. Finishing off the borough tips in NE quarter.nordicstar15/10/2013
Easy parking in nearby Billet Road, which about the only good thing I can say about this top. A boring and busy main road. The nearby McDonalds is named after the top - is London Borough Top bagging really getting that popular?!Hillsidenick21/07/2013
Down in Essex for a wedding so we didn't miss the opportunity to get a few tops in even if they were mostly drive byes. 6th of 8 today.heavyhorses04/05/2013
Visited With Darren while trying to visit all the high points on London in one day.magirob10/01/2013
Fifteen of London Borough tops in 14 hours by bike from Kew. This one was visited 6h from start at Kew. Easy approach as downhill from Havering Atte Bower church.NilsOS09/10/2010
Parked on corner of Kingston Hill Avenue. High point clearly the N end of cemetary (does the embankment count...?)wheresthepath21/02/2010
Home borough. I walked from Havering via Cabin Hill, Redbridge to bag 4 tops in a day.Overthehilljill17/10/2009
The highest point is in the cemetery - it's obvious once you're there.Richard29/08/2009
Best bet 48429 89800 in corner of new part of cemetry - is it natural or man made? 48681 89471 on the quarry edge - easy to get to but GPS says its lower. Road seems OK but dangerous. Waste of time really!destaylor16/04/2008
Highest spot in the new part of the cemetery or across road in quarry site.Nick26/02/2008
