Member's Comments on Silverhill...

  • Nick Wakelam says...
  • Despite being man-made and lower than Newtonwood Lane; decided to bag anyway for completeness. Good car park; paths and miners summit at top - certainly the best slag heap I have ever seen! Gt Grandad worked at Pleasley Colliery (now museum); which you can see from the top. Great uncle and namesake died at nearby Glapwell pit in 1924.
  • Chris Pearson says...
  • A smoothly landscaped hill with trails made from the spoil of the former Silverhiil Colliery. On top is a detailed sculpture of a miner testing for gas. When built five extra metres were added to the top to make it the highest point in Nottinghamshire -(as still claimed on sign below) but detailed surveying (see data base of British hills) has calculated the honour goes by 30cms to Newtonwood Lane. The surveying did not include the large rocks placed on top at the points of a compass or under the statute.
