Walked all the way around, trig still behind fencingmatty1971b20/01/2024
Field and trig 'look accessible' from south side through missing railing.Matt15/08/2023
From N. Decent parking on Broad Lane, just below bus stop & pedestrian entrance to Bramley Park - Entered park & a short climb over short grass to the summit GR by wall.gerrybowes06/09/2022
Up from near The Beacon. Who knows where the summit was to start with. Trig looks forlorn behind bars.fasgadh22/05/2022
Just the other side of the wall 3 times during Bramley parkrunburwellian14/05/2022
Completion round of both the Wharfe catchment and Leeds UA summits today, visiting Rawden Hill, Healthwaite Hill, Walton Head Whin, Bilbrough Hill, Garforth Cliff, Beecroft Hill, Owlcotes Hill and Tinshill Moor. The car did most of the heavy work, clocking up 100 miles, whereas I only walked 6 miles to bag all of them! (S)silveracorn_alan02/01/2022

Beecroft Hill from GR: SE 23656 35150. Summit is the top of embankment secured by a stone wall at SE 23759 35102 (This is outside the fencing). Trig Point has moved to a position at SE 23743 35099 (inside the fencing) from it's OS Mapping position of SE 23720 35041.ronaldo33326/12/2019
Parked to the NW in Beecroft Crescent by pub SE 236 351.David Evans12/05/2019
All short cuts into the summit field now securely blocked off. No chance of a casual entry. The trig is only 5m inside the fence but higher ground is behind it. However, higher ground still is alongside the Row to the sourh west and outside of the security fencing. Whether this and the land behind the trig is natural is open to debate.moorsman07/05/2019
Parked on Fairfield Hill and found path from corner of road up to reservoir compoundMark Sims07/03/2019
4 of 5 on 25.8 mile bike ride. Starting in parkside road, Bradford. Including harrop edge, chellow heights, idle hill, beecroft hill and owlcotes hill. Think I’m reservoired out today 😩The-Z-Man02/09/2018
The embankment secured by a stone wall appears to be marginally higher than the trig. Thought this was Leeds completion but I've missed one. B-----r. Another trip up north next week then.Campbell Singer02/11/2017
Walked all the way around. Embankment above stone wall by fence seemed HP.PeterD05/09/2017
Visited en route to Bramley station from a friend's house on the north side. Didn't get inside the compound but got the highest point on the edge so near as done it. Wet and humid- not pleasant conditions when you're running to get a train and trying to fit in an extra hill.Jake99423/07/2017
by bike from Cookridge, first of 3 Tumps in the dayIanHHill16/02/2017
Running from Kirkstall the morning after after Verity's hen do. Super nice to run past Junior parkrun in Bramley park. Couldn't find Dangerous Dave's route in to the trig so assumed as per Dazingdale new fencing made the very top inaccessible. Beautiful views from a very icy summit on Bramley park back across Kirkstall. 7.1km loop from Kirkstall abbey.Fionalevey29/01/2017
4th hill of 5 today and Leeds U/A penultimate tump on an 18.5 mi walk from Menston to New Pudsey station. I climbed The Chevin, Billing Hill and Tinshill Moor, descending into Horsforth past the station continuing to Hunger hills skirting woodland, Byron lane to Bar lane (over A65) crossing river, briefly onto A657 then up through woodland parallel to main road & then up through residential area to Bramley park. I climbed the corner of stone wall and fencing close to trig and visited high point near fence and then generally wandered round. Extra fencing has been added to make the other route more difficult. Continued direct for Owlcotes hill.Dazingdale22/01/2017
Followed Dangerous Dave's ingenious route to the trig and embankment.Nick Down109/11/2016
A high climb and jump using combination of Tree/ Wall/Railings/Barbed Wire to get at trig looked too tricky and risky ...until Darren did it first.Chris Pearson25/07/2016
A lot of high fencing.arranc15/03/2016
Had to give a friend a lift into Leeds early in the morning, decided on a few tump visits to keep me awake on the way home :)the_adam28/11/2015
nipped to bag this on the way home after having a walk around Billing Hill & LBAjoseph mitchell27/11/2015
As Dangerous Dave. A day later thank goodness. When he says narrow footpath, he's not kidding.ngthack08/11/2015
Solo. Bagged the trig point and the highest ground by finding the way inside the compound! Walk up to the main gates by the mast then walk down the narrow gap on the left, between the stone wall and the high fence. This takes you to the trig point and out into the open field.Dangerous Dave07/11/2015
A complete anticlockwise circuit round the reservoir to find the moved trig and a bit of embankment where the fence is that's higher than the base of the reservoir. There were two guys with dogs in middle of area inside fence to the east of the reservoir.but how they got on I couldn't define. They were too far away to react to me waving to try and find out how they got in.vegibagger18/09/2015
Continuing my covered reservoir afternoon.Been here before but there were massive construction works.Reasonable views.catman12/01/2015
walked round. High fencing all the way!Alan Caine13/12/2014
Short walk for a photo of Fort Knox using the paths of Bramley Park and to get a view of Bramley Reservoir trig.Dugswell205/10/2014
Top is better protected than Fort Knox!citygent11/09/2014
Bramley covered reservoir, comms mast on top. Much heavy construction work going on, hoardings and b/wire prevented access. Revisit 09/06/17 successful using CP's route methinks. Trig has been moved.Aye Jimmy17/03/2014

Cottingley to Bramley Railway Station via Beeston Royds-Gildersome-Beulah Farm-Swinnow Moor-Beecroft Hill trig pointsMac.Hawk23/02/2005
My local Tump, though of course I didn't know that at the time! I'm ridiculously proud of apparently having beaten Rob Woodall to the trig. In its original position it used to be reachable by a very narrow gap in the railings.Jon F01/03/2004
