Ascent Trip Report

The highest point in Northamptonshire. Asked the local farmer at Staverton Lodge for permission to walk up, which he denied giving some feeble excuse. Not wanting to make a scene I retreated and approached on the public bridleway from the east and made the short detour north to the summit and then returned the same way. A large flattish top with a motocross course on it (the site of an old hill-fort) with no-one around and pleasant enough rolling rural views. I ‘left no trace’, unlike the bikers.
