Ascent Trip Report

Richmond County HP.

Tried the Parson's Cemetery and the 2 spots in Tom Layton's report that are located in the town of Norman, NC. Agree that the spot near the center of town is at or near 630 feet and the highest near an old church.

Take I-74/US 220 south from Biscoe and take the Norman exit. Turn right off the ramp on to North main Street. Once you cross US 220 Business, look for and old church to your right. Per GPS, the HP appears to be in the back corner of the right side yard of the Church.
