I have edited the height elevation to 233m above sea level, as actually on OS maps if you zoom in close enough there is a slight rise from the Trig Point from 231m to 233m.
Also therefore it is not higher than the County Tops of Hertfordshire (244m) and Bedfordshire (243m) Only the neighbouring fells linked to the beacon (249m) are heigher than these. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:55, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
The summit can't be at 231m if there is a higher point at 233m adjacent to it. Read the Wikipedia entry for the definition of summit : "a summit is a point on a surface that is higher in elevation than all points immediately adjacent to it". On that basis I'm going to reword the article 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:28, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
I took these words out about Clipper Down -- "making it the highest point in the east of England." followed by a dead link -- because it is a clear error: the next paragraph states correctly that Haddington Hill is the highest point in the region. Andrew Dalby 13:01, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
Line of Sight to Blue Bell Hill
It says you can see Blue Bell Hill in Kent (allegedly - there is no citation). This can't be true. I have written a computer programme to take a cross-section along a route and overlay it onto the curvature of the Earth, then superimpose a line from one point to the other. The line in this case goes directly through some hills between the two. You don't need to rely on my programme to figure this out - if you draw a line on a map you will see that it passes through the ridge at Barnet a third of the way along, at 150m only 100m or so lower than Ivinghoe Beacon. Over 60 odd km the bulge caused by the curvature of the Earth will more than make up for the 100m difference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:59, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
