Ascent Trip Report

The highest point in Gateshead Unitary Authority and previously of the whole of Tyne and Wear County Council.

A spot height in a muddy field, although it seemed marginally higher closer to the road to the north (no crops this time of year so I wandered around with altimeter in hand). Great views over the Tyne Valley and Durham Dales. Also visited the equally high area 1 km west adjacent to and in the field ESE of the old water tower.
