Both summits from Penistone Hill.rhalstead29/12/2023
Close as possible, via Walshaw Dean reservoir from Hebdengwenmarsden24/08/2022
Short diversion off Pennine Way. After the Tump summit: a faint ATV track leads past the boundary stone.PGCE09/04/2022
Parked in the car park where the Pennine bridle way and Pennine way meet, south west of Walshaw Dean reservoir and followed the Pennine way to the col between Round hill and Dick Delf hill where a tussock and bog trot takes you to the top (to find the boundary stone clear visibility would help as its only ankle high). Six and half mile in Two and three quarter hours.WAYNE ROWLETT15/10/2021
7km round trip from the end of back lane. 1hr 15.Nicky C13/10/2021
A circular walk through Bronte Country from Penistone Hill Country Park, visiting Ponden Clough, Alcomden Stones, Withins Height Boundary Stone, Withins Height (Round Hill) and Top Withins. A cold grey day with Annette, Chris, Christine and Steve. 16.2km with 480m ascent in 5h15m.silveracorn_alan01/04/2021

As others, easy parking to NE in Back Lane at SE 0022 3658 - Up track to join Pennine Way & then up PW past Top Withins - Left PW shortly before col & WNW across heather & tussock to the unmarked summit. From summit, headed NE along a faint ATV track for about 80m to Bradford's UA top which lies by a boundary stone. Had I read Jim Bloomer's comment before setting off, I would have descended on this track to Top Withins. (S)gerrybowes09/11/2020
From Walshaw Dean reservoir which was covered in thick cloud whilst the moors were bathed in sunshine. Lovely but tough going off the PW. Descended down Shoulder Nick and onto a path which accesses the grouse butts. With Mart.John Eley07/11/2020
Short division off Pennine Way.tim74715/09/2020
faint vehicle track goes direct from the rear of 'High Withins'.jimbloomer11/08/2020
Climbed from Haworth via the Bronte way up to Top Withens then a b_line to the summit. Very rough grass, hard goingrobert24/07/2020
From Tump summit. Found stone with KC 1992 inscription. Returned to Back Lane, stopping for a snack by ruined house and enjoying the peace. Calderdale compleat.Wycombe Wanderer16/05/2020
For Withins Height and boundary, parked to the NE in Back Lane SE002365. Enough room for a few cars.David Evans13/07/2019
From the layby to N of the 389m spot height, Lad Law, then mostly following the boundary stones across to Withins Height (both tops because I forgot which was the right one!) From there back down past the reservoirs and up the road, stopping off for Hameldon on the way to the car. First real walk of 2019 so it felt a lot longer than expected... Except for a few small patches the moors seemed surprisingly dry, I wouldn't like to try this route after heavy rain though!the_adam13/04/2019
On own. Late afternoon walk. Overcast, biting cold wind. From small (free) car park on Moor Side Lane. The toilets marked on OS map appear to have been closed down. SW along good track to Harbour Lodge Farm. The path then takes you anticlockwise around the farm boundary wall and up Oxenhope Edge. Muddy waymarked path W over Dick Delf Hill to boundary stone. Across Pennine Way then a tough 270 metres on deep tussocky grass to summit. Indistinct and no feature but GPS (OS 10 fig GR) showed I was there! Just me and the skylarks singing.Beeliner26/03/2019
From Ponden Resr, good roadside parking SD 9957 3711. PW mostly, then across some very unfriendly ground.jonglew10/01/2019

After Round hill summit, found Boundary stone With UA HP nearby.PeterD10/05/2018
Plenty of parking space at Bully Trees Farm. Paved section of Pennine Way then follow boundary ( a shallow ditch) to boundary stone. Date 1902 inscribed on tiny boundary stone. Solo. Visited trig point on way back. Summit of Round Hill is unmarked.Dangerous Dave30/11/2017
Along the Pennine Way for most of the way until horrible tussocks last 300 ms. Huge vistas.Campbell Singer08/11/2017
dull evening - squalls from the westbobthorp12/09/2017
Easy ascent from south along Penine Way past reservoirs. Ground away from the path very lumpy so not easy to reach summit.Newton Maximus16/06/2017
Started Haworth, visited after summitting Withins Height and found boundary stone. Walked in circles a few times exploring to make sure. Continued on wild traverse to Watersheddles reservoir.Dazingdale19/03/2017

Along PW from SW. Small parking area at SD948323 not on map. Found small cairn on Withins Height, but not boundary stone at WH Boundary despite criss crossing the grid square for 1/2hr. Must have nearly tripped over it.mart079711/06/2016

Parked close to Bully Trees Farm. One hour forty minutes return in blustery but dry conditions on Pennine Way path past Top Withens. Evidence of a small pile of stones at what appears to be the summit. Solo.bolton07/01/2016
Parked easily to NE near Bully Trees Farm. Very good track and paths. Last few hundred metres tussocks.destaylor19/07/2015

Round walk to/from Haworth via Stanbury and back via Bronte waterfalls. Beautiful sunny day. Plenty of parking in Haworth.Argentum6605/07/2015
With Jo, circular walk from Moor Side Lane; track to Harbour Lodge, paths onto Withins Height (Round Hill) and Withins Height (Round Hill) [boundary], returning via Withins Height trig, Bronte Bridge and Penistone Hill trig. Weather; high cloud, cold wind though it got warmer later, good visibility.amblerbob07/03/2015
Done solo - but I fail to see why this is listed twice. Its just a heather topped hill with no significant features.Aimless Rambler12/03/2014

Walked to Top Withins from Haworth and spent half an hour looking for the elusive 'top'. Eventually found a boundary stone which is probably as high as anything within the Bradford boundary. Higher ground behind is in Calderdale.citygent27/01/2011
