Before you use this site, you must understand and accept the following
Accuracy of information
The data in this site were put together from a number of sources, each of which were themselves inaccurate or incomplete. In addition, this site allows people to update the database with new locations. We have no way of vetting people's integrity, so these locations should be treated with extra suspicion. Existance of an entry in this database does not mean that anything remains at the location, or indeed, that anything ever was there!
Trigpoints, by their very nature, are often located at the most elevated and exposed locations in the vicinity. Especially in upland areas, this in itself represents a danger. Before attempting to visit any location, you must ensure that you have both the necessary skills and equipment for the terrain you must cross. Land use also changes, so what once was home to a triangulation pillar may now be a chemical factory, or worse. Existance of an entry in this database does not mean that it is safe to approach that location!
Many trigpoints are located on private land. Often permission must be obtained before entering this land. You must seek permission from any land owner whose land you cross. Where information is available to us, we will indicate when access permission is required. However we only have this information for a small fraction of the database, so you must take responsibility for finding the land owner and gaining permission. Existance of an entry in this database does not imply that you have permission to approach that location!
