Ascent Trip Report

This area contains the high point of the London Borough of Harrow and the county top of the historic County of Middlesex. However it's one of those urban locations where the precise natural summit is modified and probably unknowable and further complicated by the fact that the present Hertfordshire-Harrow boundary may not be exactly co-incident with the historic Hertfordshire-Middlesex boundary.

We parked by the small triangle of grass and trees in Alpine Walk and visited all quadrants of the A409/A4140 junction (where Magpie Hall Road, The Common, Common Road and High Road meet). Also visited the Alpine Pub and the marginally higher old Hertfordshire-Middlesex boundary stone on High Road 150 metres or so north-west of the junction. For good measure we also gained access to the higher covered reservoirs to the north (Colne Valley Pumping Station) which are higher but (even more obviously) man-made.
