  • Chris Pearson says...
  • An island summit but as Mr Spock (who died this week) would have probably said "Its a summit Jim but not as we know them" On a main road by shops etc - all very flat. Sea front much more interesting with a granite boulder on a mound commemorating the top secret COPP (Combined Operations Pilotage Parties) Depot which was set up in 1943 on Hayling Island under the instruction of Lord Mountbatten. Small teams of sailors and soldiers trained as frogmen and canoeists for covert beach reconnaissance and other essential clandestine operations prior to the Allied landings on enemy occupied territory throughout the world.

  • Not sure if this is the highest point on Hayling Island. There is a 13m spot height within a 10m contour on detailed OS maps at SZ689998 (Hayling Golf Links). There are also 7m spot heights at SZ714994 (jn of St Mary's Road and Beach Road) and SZ708992 (jn of St Helen's Road and Staunton Avenue)
