Overcoming security blocks with the Access database

See Upgrading when transferring personal ascent records between Excel or csv versions. Users of the Access version should use the inbuilt facility to import logs from previous versions in Access or Excel. There is also a facility for importing/exporting records to and from www.hill-bagging.co.uk.

You can use the Access versions even if you do not have Microscoft Access. Download the free Access 2007 runtime or Access 2010 runtime from the Microsoft website after checking that your version of Windows meets the requirements. Do not install a runtime version of Access if you already have a full version of Access on your computer.

P30 Appendix

Mark Jackson, Andrew Tibbetts, Simon Edwardes, Jim Bloomer and George Gradwell

The Tumps is a list of all hills having at least 30m drop. All Tumps of height 490m or greater, and lower hills from other lists, are in the DoBIH. The downloadable file below gives the remaining 10,812 Tumps, plus some deletions. They are also available on Hill Bagging.

Please note the data has not had the same level of scrutiny as for hills in the DoBIH, though we have started to work our way through it. The columns of the Excel version align with the full DoBIH so users can easily merge the two files. To merge with the Britain-only file, first delete the columns headed Dil A VL 5M s5M Ca Bin from the P30 Appendix. These are columns BC-BE, BJ, CH, CR & CS if you delete them simultaneously.

We welcome 10-figure grid references for the Tumps. If you are not currently contributing GPS measurements and would like to do so, please read our requirements in the Database notes.

GPS users - can you help?
We are building a dataset of reliable 10-figure GPS references based on ground measurements (not from maps). If you would like to help, please read our requirements in the Database notes. Our interest is not limited to hills for which we lack a figure in the Hills database, as multiple entries improve the accuracy and reliability of the data.
Survey fund
In response to a number of requests, we have provided this PayPal facility for those wishing to contribute towards the development of the database. At present all the fund goes towards purchasing and operating our survey equipment, whose costs are considerable. Please email if you would prefer to contribute by cheque. A brief summary of our equipment and surveying objectives is given in the Database Notes.

Recent donations have gone towards purchase of a Leica Viva GS15 receiver to replace our ageing Leica 530. One of the Leica 530's circuit boards, which supply power from the batteries to the unit, had failed and consequently the instrument's lifetime was limited. The GS15 is the latest model in Leica's range and has the bonus of weighing only 1.5kg.


Hills Database user surveys
Dec 2010 user survey (pdf)

July 2008 user survey (pdf)

As we aim to provide lists and features people want, we place considerable value on the feedback we receive from users. Version 12 reflected to a large extent the views expressed in the 2010 survey. We have not provided Yeamans but will continue to monitor the demand.
