From water tower parking, visited the two spots either side of a hedge then the one about 500m away next to a building. Not obvious to me which was the highest of the three.mae10/08/2016
A revisit to correct my botched job last time. All likely spots visited, after parking by water towerColin Crawford09/08/2016
Parked at water tower to W, walked along road to convenient gate into field S of road. Summit GR given about 30m into field, long grass. Similar height in adjacent field, hedgerow between two seems highest. All higher than nearby roadside.Aye Jimmy05/08/2016
From access track at Moorgate Plantation to Gateshead Met District Top, then to the Hump/Tump which is in a field south of the road near a gap in the hedge that runs perpendicular to the road.afoster02/05/2016
After bagging the CoU/CoA Top, did the 'alternative summit' which is now the Hump (From high point on road, could see through hedge & it appeared that ground in field was higher). Parked by the water tower and walked back down the road to access the field & its summit mound close to the hedge. (S)gerrybowes06/01/2015
Walked along road to tower from East top. Failed to spot high point in field (unticked).malcorbett31/07/2013
Went across the road at time to other side as it looked a possible but didn't record thinking it lower than the water tower and original summit. Notes then: Parked at track end by road. Manure heap now small hill in own right. Field planted w wheat so carefully used tractor runs to gain apparent top in the crop. Great views into Tyne valley and Durham dales. Also to fomer water tower top.nordicstar02/08/2012
Visited this roadside verge between parking at the water tower and visiting the Unitary County top further east.Moorponder30/10/2009
