From Springhead Hill car pk with brother, via Kithust Hill (new for him) and Lee Farm. A little unhappy with the no ROW sign at TQ071703 as the lane leads to access land in 300m- we went that way anyway to a pleasant grassy ridge, well in the middle of the relatively intensively managed Angerming Estate. Good views, included a glimpse of Portsmouth.pwheeler01/04/2018
Two grassy domed summits in sheep pasture: the Southern one has a trig and looks higher but with the Abney we confirmed that the northern one is higher. Superb views to S Downs, Coast and Isle of Wight.Denise 19/01/2018
By bridleway from Lee Farm. Hard to believe the N top is higher than the S with the trig point, but the Abney does not lie.RichardM19/01/2018
Very low cloud on the top by the trig point with visibility down to 100m or so but well-marked paths hereabouts make navigation easy. Onward to Amberley via SD Way for a pint and the train back.JOHNS18/11/2017

There is a trig at the top which is almost on ROW. Did this as part of a long circular walk from Amberley Stationtrimarc215/06/2016
Final West Sussex tump. Lovely bright day, cool wind blowing and hazy. Parked at Michelgrove for circular walk over Harrow and Barpham Hills. Angmering Farm LLP estate land. RoW initally, then up and over Harrow Hill dropping down to RoW through Lee Farm. Then took short cut up onto Barpham Hill where I was challenged as was off the RoW, but blagged it and carried on. Trig pillar some 400m S of HP.jonglew17/03/2016
From ne via Harrow Hill. Extra 1km each way due to temp road closure. Foggy day.RHW23/01/2016
2hr sunday morning club run. Visited the official hill top some 400m north of the trig as well as the trig itself. The Hill lies in the Angmering Park Estate -a traditional agricultural and sporting Estate of some 6,750 owned by the Trustees of the late Bernard, 16th Duke of Norfolk for the benefit of his daughters and other wider members of his family. The Estate’s origins go back to the Norman Conquest. Activities on the Estate include farming, a racing yard (gallops to the west of the top) , shooting and other country pursuits, property letting and forestry. (and for the public walking, mountain biking, running on the many rights of way)Chris Pearson02/05/2015
