Ascent Trip ReportGod made the world, but the Dutch made The Netherlands. They also made this part of Lincolnshire (the historic 'Parts of Holland') and among many possible high points this is thought to be the highest. An astonishing landscape of water, marsh, embankments and sky and the richest agricultural land in England.
We parked next to "The Ship" pub on Reservoir Road in Surfleet Seas End and walked firstly SW, then over the sluice bridge, then SW in front of a row of houses and then around the field edge to the embankment, where after fighting through reeds and brambles one can gain the 8 metre spot height and appreciate both the biting wind and widespread views (although in our case the views were curtailed by the gathering darkness of our dusk ascent!).
