View from Knowle Hill viewing mound, Fair Oak
Knowle Hill is an area of grass and scrub with a small pond. A notice by Fair Oak and Horton Heath Parish Council says "The site was originally an old sand pit, and then a rubbish dump, and is now open for people to enjoy". "The viewing mound was created from a pile of waste rubble. Climb up to the top and you'll have excellent views of Stoke Park woods". However, unless the scrub seen in this photo is cleared, this claim would seem to be a bit optimistic for anyone under ten feet tall. See also SU5018 : Viewing Mound at Knowle Hill, Fair Oak.
