Summary for Newtown Hill : Wooded summit, easily reached but without view.

Picture: The flattish wooded top from the north.
This summit is part of a low NS ridge east of Bagnalstown. It is in a wood and is easily reached from a forest entrance at A (S74901 65414).

The wood is relatively small, perhaps 500 X 600m and as of 2014 does not have an extensive network of forest roads so has little opportunity for walking. There is also an amount of rubbish around.

Poor Binnion

What can I say about Newtown Hill, Shotgun Cartridges, Bullet Casings and Drink the order of the day. Parked at forest entrance at A (S74901 65414), lots of litter strewn about here with loads of bullet shells. walked into small forest on path for about 100mts went into forest on right, lots of fallen trees here, stumbled about for a bit, nothing to see. Headed back to car treading carefully and left with no fond memories. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1281/comment/15966/
