Travelcard Tump-bagging day, left car near W Ruislip sta, walked up from Perivale sta, very pleasant on the open space. Members of the London Nat Hist Soc are keen on this hill, good for butterflies esp., as a member I'm a bit surprised I'd never been on this hill before.pwheeler01/08/2019
Parked in the free car park directly opposite the Ballot Box PH on Horsenden Lane North - SE up path (tarmac, then cobble, then gravel & finally grass) to the unmarked summit S. of trig point. (S)gerrybowes28/07/2019
Short walk from free car park by tennis courts at base of hill to NW to urban park area with trig and good views on crisp clear cold morning. HP SE of trig on grassy path near trees. Start of delightful 16 mile tump and trig walk around Wembley and Harrow, with the majority being within green spaces.Denise 17/01/2019
Free car park opposite Inn on NW side of hill, grassy paths to summit. Wonderfully rural for so close to London. Spectacular day of cloudless skies, bright sunshine, crisp views and temperatures just above zero. Open, levelish grassy summit with trig, high point on S edge. Even a Gruffalo trail in the Oak woods on S side of hill.RichardM17/01/2019
Fab hill top with a trig point on top. 30km run Rickmansworth to Ikea Wembley via Batchworth Heath, Potter Street Hill, Harrow on the Hill, Sudbury, Horsenden Hill and Hanger Lane.Fionalevey09/12/2018

A genuinely enjoyable London top! An evening walk from Perivale tube, over the canal and along paths to the little summit plateau. The evening lights of London spread out below as I circuited prospective highpoints and the trig.Nick Down102/03/2017
Day out on the Tube doing a circuit of the Tumps. Out and back from Sudbury Town Tube Station.rhalstead25/02/2017
From Perivale tube to Sudbury Town. A very good hill by London standards. I had never seen wild parakeets in the UK: in the east-side woods, they drowned out all other birdsong.Pete R22/12/2016

Parked for free in side road near shops. Walked up passed the pub, into grassy slopes, up to car park, and final path up to trig and slightly higher spot height.

Lovely views, especially of my next tump of the day Harrow on the hill.pdantic23/01/2016

After a nearby work course with L. Also 30/09/2015 torchless run from Sudbury Hill in dwindling twilight.A conservation area of woodland and rough grass. Archaeological evidence has shown that people occupied the site for at least 7000 years. The ancient plough soil on the hill top suggests Neolithic farming. The Ballet Box Public House is so called because of its use as a polling station for canal boatmen.Chris Pearson09/03/2005
