Selling - The Mount - Beech Pollard - Chartham Downs - Canterbury.Mark Jackson04/06/2022
Parking by track (TR 06159 56587) or by the railway bridge if there is no room. Easy paths except for the last 10 metres where I thrashed around in brambles trying out several likely candidates.DC11main13/06/2021
Parked at start of ROW to WSW. Tracks and path to highpoint and alternative. A few brambles for the last 10m or so to each point.PGCE26/02/2021
From Upper Ensign, followed path to summit area, but high point unclearrfoster21/02/2021
Parked just north of railway. Up FP and then track. HP just off track to west.PeterD24/10/2020
Parked in substantial pull in just north of railway bridge. Along good track to indeterminate top. Evidently there are wild ponies inhabiting the wood.Campbell Singer17/10/2020

Footpath from Upper Ensign visiting potential high points at TR06735,56657 and TR06837,57055. No idea which is the higher though felt slightly more ascent to the second.RichardM20/01/2020
Just driven down from Manchester to complete last 12 Tumps in Kent plus. Parked 100 yards North of Railway at entrance to good track.GordonAdshead30/08/2019
From the E on RoW and access paths after parking NE side railway bridge. HP seemed a little further N than the OS spot height. 3m or so W side of track. All fairly flat though.jonglew11/11/2018
From N side of rly bridge at TR 0605 5650, good space to park on rough ground. Wore my jogging pants after reading about brambles etc but by walking N up road then first ROW on R there were no botanical hazards to justify such excessive clothing on a sticky 30 degC day. Good protection from the horseflies though. Some merit apart from HP bagging as part of the tracks that give greater walks in the Blean Woods around Canterbury.pwheeler05/07/2018
Parked to west at 06045 56525 on rough ground and made my way along easy to follow tracks.clivevilla27/04/2018
Selling to Chilham.Smudge24/10/2015
Painful. Brambles and nettles on overgrown paths not quite bad enough to stop me forcing a passage- shorts a bad idea, but once I had started... tree covered flattish top. circular walk.Chris Pearson05/06/2015
Several contenders in very large contour: E side of track at bend TR 06839 57044 most likely? From SW, followed main forest track then back past sawmill and along road.RHW21/02/2015
Date not known but on same day as Roddick's Wimbledon finalAdrian01/01/2000
