Rivey Hill is a hill overlooking Linton in Cambridgeshire. (grid reference TL567480) It is the highest point for several miles around and stands at the impressive height (for a Cambridgeshire hill) of 112 m/367 ft. The hill has steep sides going down into Linton and a prominence of 21 m. It is crowned by a large watertower which identifies it when seen from a long way off; the highest point is on private land but a footpath crosses near the top, ascending from Linton. (200 ft of ascent!)
The ascent of the hill is the start of a pleasant circular walk, detailed in Jarrold's Walks in Cambridgeshire, which goes north from the top to the Roman Road, follows this over Hildersham Hill (95 m) for 2 miles (3.2 km), then descends to Hildersham and goes back along the valley of the River Granta to Linton.
