Logged visits for Bergfuehrer
2011-05-24 11:25 - TP1222 (Beinn Nan Gudairean)
Argyllshire. It was a windy day but not compared to the previous day when an ascent would have been impossible. There were views of most of Colonsay and Oronsay and of the Paps of Jura. Plug missing.
2011-05-22 15:50 - TP1226 (Beinn Oronsay)
Argyllshire. Walked across The Strand from Colonsay and left the track at its left bend to make our way to the summit. Views to Colonsay and of Jura and Islay. From a little way below the trigpoint there is a good view of the priory below but cliffs prevent a direct descent. Plug with indented lettering.
2011-04-18 16:35 - TP7455 (Church Lawford)
Warwickshire. The Leica dome is on a tripod in the grounds of Satellite Media Services.
2011-04-18 16:10 - TP3738 (Hensborough Hill)
Warwickshire. I admit I just drove up to the top car park for a quick visit. I had planned a more leisurely visit with some bird watching but the conditions were hazy. White painted pillar with an asphalt plug.
2011-04-18 15:35 - TP0897 (Ashby Grange)
Northamptonshire. This is well covered by the hawthorn hedge. I scratched my hand and arm confirming that the plug has slightly indented lettering.
2011-04-18 14:55 - TP1743 (Buckby Resr)
Northamptonshire. The gates to the compound were not locked. I think the padlock is broken. Hazy views today. Plug with slightly indented lettering.
2011-04-18 14:25 - TP5322 (Pasture Farm)
Northamptonshire. Just into a field off a minor lane. The views were hazy today. Plug with slightly indented lettering.
2011-04-18 11:45 - TP0256 (Cold Ashby)
Northamptonshire. It is not every day that you get to a trig to find a group of fellow trigpointers, let alone the Ordnance Survey and the BBC. The pillar is in excellent condition, the plug having raised lettering. The plaque commemorates the day 75 years ago which we had gathered to celebrate the anniversary of. So pleased that this occasion was marked.
2011-04-17 10:45 - TP2455 (Coundon Resr)
Warwickshire. I tried all angles, even helped by a small step ladder. However, I could not see any of it. Work is obviously underway and I would guess that the grass has now been ploughed up by the contractors. Whether the trig is still standing is therefore unknown.
2011-04-16 16:25 - TP0198 (Home Farm Pillar)
Nottinghamshire. It is still there, still covered by the Ford hubcap. It is in the base of the hedge directly opposite the wooden telegraph pole at the entrance to Weavers Lane. Summer growth will soon get in the way though.
2011-04-10 15:20 - TP3059 (Embleton Old Hall)
County Durham. We followed the Castle Eden Walkway from Hurworth Burn Reservoir on a warm spring afternoon. The pillar is next to two large compost heaps but there is a fair view of Teesside and the hills of the North York Moors beyond. The plug is missing.
2011-03-21 14:45 - TP1028 (Barf Hill)
Yorkshire. There were 360 degree views of quiet countryside from this 10 metre hill. Asphalt plug.
2011-03-21 12:50 - TP0363 (Hilston)
Yorkshire. We didn't have the photos with us but were certainly in the right spot. Unfortunately it did not present itself.
2011-03-21 12:05 - TP4818 (Mile House)
Yorkshire. It is in the hedge with the flush bracket facing away from the road. The adjacent farm seems to be empty. Plug with slightly indented lettering.
2011-03-21 12:00 - TP0364 (Withernsea Road)
Yorkshire. On surround of manhole cover.
2011-03-21 11:50 - TP7184 (Patrington)
Yorkshire. The gates were open but with hedges and a lean-to building joining on to the wall, it looks unlikely that the FBM still exists.
2011-03-21 11:40 - TP5326 (Patrington)
Yorkshire. There was an electric fence set up in the field so we viewed and photographed the pillar from the gate.
2011-03-21 11:35 - TP0649 (Patrington FBM Aux 1)
Yorkshire. Easy enough to find, it hasn't moved.
2011-03-21 11:15 - TP7561 (Easington)
Yorkshire. On Yorkshire Water building at the sports field.
2011-03-21 11:00 - TP4506 (Lockham)
Yorkshire. Lots of other concrete blocks around but nowhere near as interesting as the trig pillar. Redshanks were out in force on the sandbanks of the Humber Estuary. Plug with slightly indented lettering.
2011-03-20 12:35 - TP6789 (Weighton Wold)
Yorkshire. It was a grey day over the Yorkshire Wolds. Resin plug.
2011-03-17 11:45 - TP4054 (Humphrey Head)
Lancashire. A pleasant walk from the outdoor centre on a very misty day so hardly any views from what would otherwise be a spectacular location. Plug missing.
2010-11-20 15:40 - TP0889 (Arnside Knott)
Westmorland. This is a great little hill with a super position giving views to the mountains of the Lake District and south over Morecambe Bay. There was a great sunset over the sea and good views to Blackpool Tower where the Strictly dancers were warming up for their performances in the ballroom. White painted pillar with plug missing.
2010-11-03 12:25 - TP0855 (Annesley Road)
Nottinghamshire. It is a short stroll up the tarmac driveway from the layby. The portakabin complex and the fencing have all gone and the trigpoint is free once more. There were nice autumn colours in the view away from the roads. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-11-01 15:20 - TP3520 (Grindon Moor)
Staffordshire. Behind a barbed wire fence by the road. It was misty so no real views. Asphalt plug with a hole in it.
2010-11-01 14:10 - TP4525 (Long Rake)
Derbyshire. In grassy field near to road. Misty today so views rather limited. Plug with slightly indented lettering.
2010-11-01 13:55 - TP5191 (Noton Barn)
Derbyshire. In grassy field close to road. Misty today so views limited. Plug with slightly indented lettering.
2010-10-31 18:55 - TP7177 (Cat and Fiddle)
Cheshire. It is protected by two cones in the small car park on the western side of the inn. There is no plaque, no plate and no height tag but, unusually for an FBM, there is a flush bracket. The flush bracket is half buried and we did not excavate as it was a dark and windy evening.
2010-10-05 15:20 - TP4663 (Markfield)
Leicestershire. We did a circular walk from the church, the longer way up and the shorter way down. There are good views but constant noise from the M1. Some graffiti on pillar and an asphalt plug.
2010-09-20 12:15 - TP7189 (Crianlarich)
Perthshire. Just beyond the small gate that leads onto the hillside from the back garden of Benmore farmhouse. Blank height tag.
2010-09-20 12:10 - TP0567 (Crianlarich FBM Aux 1)
Perthshire. Found after a short search near the pile of stones.
2010-09-19 13:45 - TP0559 (Scorguie FBM Aux 1)
Inverness-shire. We went armed with iainmac's photos and spent a long while prodding and doing minor excavations, but all to no avail. The tarmac path and rectangle are now grassed over and the whole area may even have been re-turfed.
2010-09-19 13:15 - TP7203 (Scorguie)
Inverness-shire. Visible through slatted fence at top of garden of 51 Swanston Avenue. Height tag missing.
2010-09-19 13:00 - TP7274 (Inverness)
Inverness-shire. The conical dome has been replaced by the more usual Leica mushroom dome.
2010-09-19 11:30 - TP7227 (Glen Moriston)
Inverness-shire. It was a wet day and the falls and rapids along the river were well worth seeing. Height tag missing.
2010-09-19 11:10 - TP0557 (Glen Moriston FBM Aux 1)
2010-09-18 13:10 - TP7516 (Fort Augustus)
Inverness-shire. It was raining as we visited this active station which is on a tower adjacent to the fire station.
2010-09-17 16:20 - TP0058 (Glen Fruin)
Dunbartonshire. Easy to find with the information from previous visits. View of Gare Loch and the Faslane base with mountains behind.
2010-07-04 12:25 - TP0078 (Craig Douglas)
Selkirkshire. With the help of photos we were pleased to find this quickly as it was starting to rain.
2010-07-03 21:15 - TP2589 (Crichton Mains)
Midlothian. It was still broad daylight for this evening visit to the trig pillar, it won't have been for poor old Border Peat when he visited at midnight in April! There were good views on a summer evening. Plug with indented lettering.
2010-07-02 20:00 - TP0080 (Tathieknowe)
Midlothian. We found this fairly quickly using old photos. The fence posts are now upright but in the same places.
2010-07-02 18:45 - TP2022 (Castle Dykes)
East Lothian. We parked by the houses and approached via Dunglass Bridge, crossing from Berwickshire into East Lothian. It was then a matter of crossing into the field avoiding stinging nettles in so doing. There are good views up and down the coast.
2010-07-02 17:35 - TP6900 (Whiteburn)
Berwickshire. This trig pillar is painted white and sits by the side of a quiet road. The plug is missing.
2010-07-02 15:40 - TP6854 (Wether Law)
Berwickshire. This seemed further from the road than the map indicated but this was probably due to the rough going and lack of mapped path. The damage is to the top. Plug with deeply indented lettering.
2010-07-02 14:45 - TP4527 (Long Yester)
East Lothian. We met the farmer on the road and he just asked us to go quietly to the pillar as there were newborn calves in the field. Views of the Lammermuir Hills. Plug with indented lettering.
2010-07-02 14:20 - TP4804 (Middle Mains)
East Lothian. It is a roadside pillar that is painted white. The plug has raised lettering and there was a penny on top.
2010-07-02 13:55 - TP5240 (Ormiston Mains)
East Lothian. It is a short walk up a track to view a field of corn.
2010-06-29 18:10 - TP7531 (Knocknevis)
Kirkcudbrightshire. This rivet is in a lovely setting at the edge of the forestry and surrounded by hills and close to Clatteringshaws Loch. The concrete block is to the left of the track as you walk from the road towards the forest.
2010-06-29 16:15 - TP7529 (Portpatrick)
Wigtownshire. This active station has now been removed and no longer features on the current OS database.
2010-06-29 14:50 - TP0589 (Stranraer FBM Aux 1)
Wigtownshire. At this time of year this took some finding but we were eventually lucky. It is opposite the track with the metal post, but to be more precise, it is opposite the lower mouth of the track rather than the metal post.
2010-06-29 14:35 - TP7218 (Stranraer)
Wigtownshire. Found under the tree as per photos of previous visitors but what the photos don't show are the rows of stinging nettles in front. After finding a way past those, sure enough the FBM was there. There is a height tag but it is blank.
2010-06-29 11:05 - TP7605 (Kirkcudbright)
Kirkcudbrightshire. This active station on the current OS database is the usual Leica mushroom dome on a pole attached to the side of the RNLI lifeboat building. The rose garden alongside the building was particularly colourful on the day we visited.
2010-05-10 14:15 - TP7142 (Arrochar)
Dunbartonshire. This is a different design to the usual FBM and there is no place for a height tag.
2010-05-10 13:30 - TP0566 (Arrochar FBM Aux 1)
Dunbartonshire. It is a nice location for a berntsen. It was easy enough to find using a photograph but had a covering of turf.
2010-05-10 10:15 - TP0670 (Fassfern)
Inverness-shire. This is an unusual but lovely lochside location, giving good views of Ben Nevis. Asphalt plug.
2010-05-09 15:40 - TP2844 (Druim Garbh)
Argyllshire. It took 20 minutes from the road and was boggy in places. Plug missing.
2010-05-08 16:30 - TP4845 (Mingary Ard)
Argyllshire. We followed tracks from Dervaig and it was a lovely woodland walk through the Quinish Estate to an excellent headland. There were views of Rum, Skye, Eigg, Muck, Canna, Coll and Tiree. Asphalt plug.
2010-05-08 12:10 - TP1218 (Beinn Nan Clach Corra)
Argyllshire. It took 40 minutes to climb up from the road, more than expected. It was a beautiful day which gave great views of Treshnish Isles, Ulva, Gometra, Coll, Rum, Eigg, Skye and the Outer Hebrides. Plug missing.
2010-05-07 18:05 - TP6614 (Tur Mor)
Argyllshire. We walked up from the highest point of the road, which made a nice evening stroll before a delicious meal at the Italian restaurant in Salen. Plug missing.
2010-05-07 13:05 - TP3404 (Gometra)
Argyllshire. We followed the track round the north side of Ulva to reach Gometra. It was a deep heather ascent from the track but we found an easier way down. The views were spectacular - Jura, Islay, Iona, Treshnish Isles, Staffa, Tiree, Coll, Rum, Skye and the Outer Hebrides. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-05-06 21:20 - TP2869 (Duart)
Argyllshire. We went out to near the castle to see if there was a sunset. The sky was good but it is the wrong angle for a sunset over water. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-05-06 15:10 - TP2893 (Dun Island)
Argyllshire. It is a short walk up from the lane but you are rewarded with great views, covering from Jura in the south to Rum in the north. Plug missing.
2010-05-05 18:05 - TP1878 (Caliach Point)
Argyllshire. It is a twenty minutes each way pleasant stroll from the end of the road. There were views to the Treshnish Isles, Coll, Rum, Eigg, Muck and the Ardnamurchan peninsula. Plug missing.
2010-05-05 15:50 - TP2766 (Dervaig)
Argyllshire. It is not far off the road on a small hill with good views. Plug missing.
2010-05-05 15:05 - TP4717 (Meall An Inbhire)
Argyllshire. We drove up the track to the mast and quickly inspected the trig as it was misty with no views. Plug missing.
2010-05-05 12:35 - TP0490 (Tobermory)
Argyllshire. Easy to find by the first tee on the golf course. There was a lovely blue azalea close by. Height tag missing.
2010-05-05 10:20 - TP6444 (Thorcaill)
Argyllshire. We followed the forest track then cut through to the shoreline. Confident that the trig stands on what would be an island at high tide. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-05-04 15:30 - TP0869 (Ard Mor)
Argyllshire. We followed trails in the Tireragen Estate and then branched off to approach the trig from the east. It was trackless except for deer tracks and we found a fairly easy route up from the valley below, certainly not as difficult as anticipated, but route choice is everything! Plug with raised lettering.
2010-05-03 15:55 - TP6142 (Staffa)
Argyllshire. We had one hour ashore as part of a trip to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles. There were great views on this clear and sunny day. Vanessa.
2010-05-02 18:00 - TP0491 (Connel)
Argyllshire. The surroundings have changed. There is a new Poppies Garden Centre and the construction of an access road to car parks has meant radical landscaping. We feared the FBM had been lost after not finding it a week earlier. We went back for a proper look with more time and found it standing in the car park. It has suffered some damage but I don't think it has been moved, probably due to the OS plate on the side. It has a height tag but with no recorded height.
2010-05-01 17:05 - TP2064 (Ceann Fasachd)
Argyllshire. It was a tough trackless walk from the road although not too far. Views over the Treshnish Isles and Tiree. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-05-01 13:40 - TP1877 (Calgary Point)
Argyllshire. It was a beautiful walk out to the point across Crossapoll Bay to Walkers Cottage, then on a compass bearing to the trigpoint. We returned to our start point by way of Feall Bay. There were good views of Gunna and Tiree. There is an asphalt plug. Alongside the pillar there is the circular disc marking a Hydrographic Survey Point.
2010-04-30 17:15 - TP1273 (Ben Hogh)
Argyllshire. We walked up the steep slope from the west passing the erratic boulder perched on three small stones near the top. There were fantastic views in all directions. BSM style flush bracket and a plug with indented lettering.
2010-04-30 15:00 - TP2847 (Druim Nan Carn)
Argyllshire. We parked on the road nearby and made our way up to the trigpoint. There were fantastic views in the clear sunny weather, especially to the north, of Canna, Rum, Eigg and Skye. Also good views to South Uist and Barra. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-04-30 11:35 - TP2168 (Chrotha)
Argyllshire. We walked up from the road about a mile away. There were a few fences to cross and it was boggy in places but it is a lovely wild area and the trigpoint stands on a rock on a hilltop above a beautiful small loch. There were great views out to the Treshnish Isles in one direction and Rum and Eigg in the other. A golden eagle soared overhead. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-04-28 15:10 - TP1276 (Ben Hynish)
Argyllshire. We walked up the road to the radar station. The pillar stands close to the radar golf ball. It would be good views but it was overcast today. BSM style flush bracket and the plug is missing.
2010-04-28 13:15 - TP1190 (Beinn Hough)
Argyllshire. We parked at Andrew's Crafts and followed the old concrete path and steps up to the old military hut and adjacent trig pillar. Despite it being overcast it was a good viewpoint. Plug missing.
2010-04-28 12:00 - TP6681 (Vaul)
Argyllshire. It is situated above a lovely hidden bay but it was windy and overcast today. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-04-28 10:45 - TP3604 (Harbour)
Argyllshire. It is a short walk up the hill (Dun Mor a Chaolais) from the harbour (after which it gets its name?) There are remains of a broch on the top of the hill and therefore the white painted pillar stands just slightly away from the top. The views could be very good but it was grey today. Plug with raised lettering.
2010-04-27 13:20 - TP7583 (Oban)
Argyllshire. Active Station on the current OS database. It is the usual Leica mushroom dome, clearly visible mounted on the roof of a large building within the complex of the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS).
2010-04-27 11:00 - TP0041 (Row)
Stirlingshire. We found it relatively easily but it would be more difficult in the summer. It is opposite a small reservoir compound.
2010-03-24 17:10 - TP0713 (Blake Mere)
Staffordshire. It is a white painted pillar standing on top of a tumulus. The 5th Staffs obviously regularly visit, using it as a war memorial. Plastic plug.
2010-03-24 16:55 - TP1562 (Bradnop)
Staffordshire. Like Moor Top further along the road, this is just over the wall. Plastic plug.
2010-03-24 16:50 - TP0190 (Moor Top)
Staffordshire. It is just over the wall from the road. There are views in all directions but it was grey today. Plug with indented lettering.
2010-03-24 16:35 - TP7437 (Leek)
Staffordshire. It was a rather grey and damp afternoon but there were still views over to The Roaches.
2010-03-24 16:25 - TP4270 (Kniveden Resr)
2010-03-24 12:05 - TP0460 (Sandon Bridge)
Staffordshire. No sign of surface block or even the rivet with the paint triangle. The paths appear to have been resurfaced.
2010-03-24 12:00 - TP7214 (Stafford)
Staffordshire. Yes, it was actually midday. It is still there and still covered in moss under a thicket of brambles, but easy enough to find at this time of year.
2010-03-24 11:40 - TP2347 (Coley)
Staffordshire. We did not have time to call at the house and did not fancy all the fences so missed out on seeing the flush bracket.
2010-03-24 10:55 - TP7440 (Lichfield)
Staffordshire. It wasn't easy to get close, so settled for a view from the road.
2010-02-13 17:05 - TP0524 (Daresbury)
Cheshire. The yellow arrow is still on the wall and the black plastic enshrouded bales are still in the field. The height tag is missing.
2010-02-13 13:15 - TP0521 (Machynlleth)
Montgomeryshire. Nicely enclosed in green railings, this FBM is in a pretty location outside the town. Road widening is taking place on the road leading from Machynlleth to the FBM but should hopefully stop just short. Nevertheless, I have not seen the plans and this may be a real danger. The height tag is missing.
2010-02-13 13:00 - TP7576 (Machynlleth)
Montgomeryshire. This is on the current OS database and has been for some time. It formerly had the station code MACH but the location was effectively the same. It is supposed to be sited on the leisure centre but we could not see it, either there or on any building nearby. It is supposed to be the usual leica mushroom dome on a pole.
2010-02-13 10:10 - TP7574 (Aberporth)
Cardiganshire. An active station on the current OS database, situated in the meteorological station, itself within the complex of the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA). We could not get a good view of this one as we could not get very close. With powerful binoculars we could, however, pick out the leica dome on a pole in the met enclosure. We viewed it from about a mile away on the lane leading to Ffrwdwenith.
2010-02-12 16:55 - TP0213 (Penrallt-Y-Gardde)
Pembrokeshire. This is a fine location and gave us great views in the late afternoon light. The plug is missing.
2010-02-12 16:30 - TP6584 (Tre-Wrdan Farm)
Pembrokeshire. This is very close to the road but there is a barbed wire fence and hedge in between. There is a gate however and this is 100 yards or more south-west down the lane. The pillar stands on a plinth and the plug is missing. There are good views of the Preseli Mountains.
2010-02-12 14:00 - TP2784 (Dinas Island)
Pembrokeshire. This is a great headland which lends itself to a very pleasant short circular walk. There are good coastal views and we were lucky to have bright weather. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2010-02-11 11:30 - TP2596 (Croes-Goch)
Pembrokeshire. The pillar stands on a plinth on a brambly hedgebank. It was reachable at this time of year from the water board track. Plug with indented lettering.
2010-02-10 16:50 - TP7120 (Tre-Tio)
Pembrokeshire. There were good views of the sea and coastline. We could not easily reach the plug but it is apparently missing.
2010-02-10 12:55 - TP6055 (Solva)
Pembrokeshire. In the corner of a field near the mast and on the south side of the track, which is driveable. Good coastal views. Plug missing.
2010-02-10 10:30 - TP0211 (Marloes)
Pembrokeshire. The pillar is on a small hill about 100yards from the road. There were spectacular coastal views on a sunnt morning. Concrete or similar replacement plug.
2010-02-09 15:30 - TP5168 (North Neeston)
Pembrokeshire. No sign of this from outside the complex.
2010-02-09 13:30 - TP7239 (Haverfordwest)
Pembrokeshire. It is opposite a cattle shed on the bank of a track. Height tag missing.
2010-02-09 13:25 - TP0609 (Haverfordwest FBM Aux 1)
2010-02-08 12:10 - TP1651 (Broadfield)
Pembrokeshire. It is still there in the hedge at the back of a caravan field. Plug missing.
2010-02-07 17:15 - TP6418 (The Ridgeway)
Pembrokeshire. The pillar stands on a plinth in the field boundary alongside a driveway. There were views of the sea but it was overcast and grey. Plug missing.
2010-02-07 17:00 - TP5139 (Norchard Beacon)
Pembrokeshire. The pillar stands on a plinth on the hedgebank. We could not easily get to the plug but as it has already been reported as missing, is unlikely to have returned. It was grey and overcast with no view.
2010-02-07 15:00 - TP0008 (Warren Farm)
Pembrokeshire. The construction of the new driveway has most likely destroyed this - how sad. I suppose there is a glimmer of hope that locals have preserved it somewhere.
2010-02-07 13:25 - TP7572 (Angle)
Pembrokeshire. This is an Active Station on the current OS database. It has been around a little while now, known formerly as both ANGL and ANGX, but its location remains on the lifeboat station. It is the usual leica mushroom dome on a pole fixed to the gable end of the building. The view is of oil refineries across Milford Haven.
2010-02-07 12:25 - TP3481 (Green Hill)
Pembrokeshire. It is right by the road. The weather was grey so no views, except of the oil refinery. Plug with indented lettering.
2010-02-07 12:00 - TP4058 (Hundleton)
Pembrokeshire. The pillar stands on a plinth on a hedgebank. It is awkward to get at and covered in ivy, so much so that we could not tell whether the plug was still in situ.
2010-02-06 14:30 - TP0181 (Llynclys)
Shropshire. Over four years have passed since the last visit but it was thanks to the photo provided by Glaslyn that we found this. It was a few inches down.
2010-02-06 14:25 - TP0606 (Oswestry FBM Aux 1)
Shropshire. Even with the aid of photos this took some finding. We found a large stone first, but then the berntsen.
2010-02-06 14:20 - TP7182 (Oswestry)
Shropshire. This was an easy find with the aid of previous photos. Height tag still in place, recording a height of 352.83ft.
2010-02-02 13:40 - TP0095 (Gloster Hill)
2010-01-31 15:50 - TP0087 (Skateraw)
East Lothian. Armed with photos it was found with my second prod, but that was very lucky as the area is quite tussocky considering the time of year.
2010-01-31 15:15 - TP0505 (Dunbar East)
East Lothian. The complete pillar is there, unlike Dunbar West. The height tag is still present and records 19.48ft.
2010-01-31 15:00 - TP7201 (Dunbar West)
East Lothian. Only the top is showing and the height tag is missing. Good views of Bass Rock.
2010-01-31 14:55 - TP0586 (Dunbar West FBM Aux 1)
East Lothian. Got it! The time of year obviously helped but we were just armed with iainmacs photos and it took 15 minutes of sustained prodding and scraping as the ground was part frozen. Good views of Bass Rock.
2010-01-31 13:35 - TP3103 (Falside Hill)
East Lothian. It was a bright cold day and there were good views of the Firth of Forth. Plug missing.
2009-12-25 15:00 - TP3654 (Harter Fell)
Yorkshire. What a spectacular Christmas Day walk this was. The snow was deep and crisp but decidedly not even. The combination of the blue sky and white snow in all directions made this very memorable. Asphalt plug.
2009-12-02 12:30 - TP6950 (Willoughby)
Nottinghamshire. We decided against getting muddy hands and did not reveal the flush bracket number. The previous visitors cannot all be wrong. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-11-04 13:05 - TP2413 (Corley Resr)
Warwickshire. As expected we had to settle for a view through the fence.
2009-10-27 13:45 - TP5733 (Rose Hill)
Surrey. It was a lovely sunny autumn day. The fences are up alongside the footpath and topped with barbed wire. We therefore approached via the cricket nets. From this side the flush bracket cannot be seen. Asphalt plug.
2009-07-25 15:20 - TP7511 (Leyland National Works)
Cumberland. This trigpoint obviously differs from the more usual pattern and was installed for a different reason but is certainly a worthy inclusion on the list.
2009-07-18 17:00 - TP7539 (Killin)
Perthshire. This is an active station on the current OS database. It is located in a water board compound in the woods south of the village of Killin. We went there in the rain and after a few attempts at finding the best viewing position, realised that it was not easy to see through the trees that surround the fenced compound. It is free standing and not attached to a roof of a building.
2009-07-18 15:50 - TP0040 (Bridge Of Orchy)
Argyllshire. I thought I had perhaps visited this rivet before but returned today to make sure.
2009-07-18 15:45 - TP0565 (Bridge of Orchy FBM Aux 1)
Argyllshire. This was easily found thanks to previous photos. It is a pleasant spot, even on a damp day.
2009-07-18 15:40 - TP7158 (Bridge of Orchy)
Argyllshire. We had a good look but fear that this was removed during forestry works.
2009-07-18 10:20 - TP7538 (Lochcarron)
Ross and Cromarty. This is an active station in the current OS database. It is on the gabled roof of the fire station, which is just off the A896 a couple of miles north east of the village of Lochcarron.
2009-07-16 15:10 - TP7537 (Ullapool )
Ross and Cromarty. This is an active station on the current OS database and is attached to the roof of the ferry terminal building.
2009-07-15 14:00 - TP3594 (Handa Island)
Sutherland. We visited the island at the height of summer and the seabirds were amazing. They are crammed onto the ledges of the cliffs round the island. Inland there is an increasing population of Great Skuas and they can be quite menacing. We approached the trigpoint from the west from the nearest point on the ring path that leads round the island and it was as if the skuas had posted sentries to observe our approach, they were on prominent rocks and mounds on all sides. We went quietly in and then quietly out again. The weather was superb and the views were breathtaking. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-07-14 21:05 - TP7536 (Kinlochbervie)
Sutherland. This is an active station on the current OS database. It is attached to the roof of the fire station.
2009-07-14 13:00 - TP5887 (Sgribhis-Bheinn)
Sutherland. We were dropped off by the minibus and then climbed up here before walking back to the ferry. The mist came down obscuring views except for tantalising glimpses of the coastline below. Stone built pillar with indented lettering on plug.
2009-07-14 11:00 - TP2900 (Dunan Mor)
Sutherland. This is by far the best of the four corners of the British mainland (in my opinion). Took the minibus to the lighthouse and walked up to the trigpoint. There were good views all round. Plug missing.
2009-07-13 13:55 - TP1217 (Beinn Nam Bo)
Sutherland. Walked in from the east, having driven south along the track to south of Bowside Lodge. On foot we then crossed the River Strathy and followed a forest track and forest ride to reach the open hillside. The pillar was then visible in the distance and the terrain in between was fine at this time of year though may be quite wet in the winter months. Expansive views with larger peaks to the south and to the west. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-07-12 11:45 - TP7575 (Thurso 2)
Caithness. This active station is on the current OS database and replaces the older one on the visitor centre. It has moved about 70 yards and I have therefore added it as distinctly new location (rather than a new location just centimetres from an old one, as is sometimes the case). The old active station (THUR) was on the roof of the visitor centre but the visitor centre has now been demolished and the new leica mushroom dome is on a tripod in a small fenced compound. Due to the close proximity of this new station to the old, there was difficulty in adding it to this website. I had to give a more distant grid reference in order to do so. The actual grid reference is NC9971067200.
2009-07-11 16:10 - TP0952 (Backlass Hill)
Caithness. Drove up the track to find the trigpoint visible and not far away but behind a couple of difficult fences and in a field with a horse. There were people around near the cottage who were watching curiously so we just viewed with binoculars and took a photo.
2009-07-11 15:10 - TP7242 (Helmsdale)
Sutherland. We could not find the FBM. The whole slope was covered in dense gorse and bracken and even the concrete hut was lost.
2009-07-11 15:05 - TP0555 (Helmsdale FBM Aux 1)
Sutherland. Under the pavement.
2009-07-11 14:40 - TP7535 (Helmsdale)
Sutherland. This is an active station on the current OS database. It is on the roof of a building by the harbour.
2009-07-11 13:25 - TP7220 (Tain)
Ross and Cromarty. We spent about 20 minutes looking for this and in looking at the photos, must have been right on top of it.
2009-07-11 13:15 - TP0560 (Tain FBM Aux 1)
Ross and Cromarty. We had a good attempt in finding this but in July it was never going to be easy.
2009-05-27 15:05 - TP4942 (Mount Hooley)
2009-05-27 14:50 - TP6997 (Winlaton)
2009-05-24 12:15 - TP1019 (Barcombe)
Northumberland. Good views, especially of the nearby fort excavations at Vindolanda. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-05-09 15:15 - TP5898 (Sgurr Na Ciche)
Inverness-shire. This is an absolutely superb peak, standing proud in the heart of Knoydart. It was mixed weather on the climb with a heavy snow shower as we summited. The remains of the Vanessa trig pillar are clearly visible as is the bolt.
2009-05-08 14:15 - TP0779 (Achaidh Mhoir)
Inverness-shire. Today the views were fabulous and it was bright and sunny. Vanessa with an asphalt plug.
2009-05-07 12:55 - TP5665 (Rhuemach Hill)
Inverness-shire. We walked up from Arisaig on a very windy day with poor visibility. We could only just see Eigg from the pillar. Asphalt plug.
2009-04-26 19:10 - TP5112 (Newland Farm)
Worcestershire. Easily accessible along a footpath from a nearby lane. Views of the Malvern Hills. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-04-26 18:40 - TP7267 (Droitwich)
2009-04-26 18:20 - TP7522 (Droitwich)
Worcestershire. This is a replacement for the active station at the now demolished Ordnance Survey Offices. It is on the roof of a building at the sewage works and can be seen by looking to the right at the main gate.
2009-04-26 17:30 - TP7521 (Stroud)
Gloucestershire. This is to be seen on the roof of one of the buildings at the Severn Trent Sewerage Works.
2009-04-26 11:50 - TP7520 (Taunton)
Somerset. This is a replacement for the active station that used to be at the Ordnance Survey Offices in the town. It is on the roof of one of the main buildings in the Hydrographic Offices. After a lot of attempts we finally got into a position to see it from the top of a hill/embankment above the dual carriageway. Standing on a block on the highpoint outside the perimeter fence, we could make out the usual Leica dome on its pole. Later we discovered you could also see it from the main entrance of Asda!
2009-04-26 11:00 - TP7301 (Taunton)
2009-04-26 10:05 - TP0274 (Blue Anchor)
Somerset. It was an overcast day with the sea looking churned up albeit calm.
2009-04-25 19:15 - TP0268 (Bratton Down)
Devon. We were lucky and managed to find it straightaway.
2009-04-25 17:50 - TP7519 (Appledore)
Devon. It is on the roof of the lifeboat building.
2009-04-25 16:34 - TP1786 (Burnstone Farm)
Devon. The pillar took a bit of getting to but managed to climb up to it from the field to the south. It is on a high plinth and the plug is missing.
2009-04-25 11:00 - TP2544 (Crapps Beacon)
Cornwall. I walked round the outside of the reservoir compound and failed to locate the pillar. I concluded that if it was there then it was in the hedge to the south of the compound. I had not read previous logs otherwise I would have persisted.
2009-04-25 10:40 - TP7153 (Boscastle)
Cornwall. Spent time looking in slightly the wrong place at first, not realising it was so near the gate.
2009-04-25 10:30 - TP0640 (Boscastle FBM Aux 1)
2009-04-25 10:15 - TP0334 (Tresparrett Down)
Cornwall. A roadside pillar with sea views but the weather was rather poor today. Plastic plug.
2009-04-24 14:45 - TP2376 (Condolden Barrow)
Cornwall. On a tumulus in a fenced enclosure. It was hazy and cloudy giving very limited views except of nearby wind turbines. Plug missing.
2009-04-24 10:30 - TP7452 (Padstow)
Cornwall. It is prominent on the roof of the harbour office building.
2009-04-23 18:05 - TP0330 (Trevose Head)
Cornwall. There were hazy coastal views but it was very windy today. The pillar is white painted and has a plastic plug.
2009-04-23 15:40 - TP0329 (Sea View Lane)
Cornwall. It is a pleasant spot with the rivet next to a bench. No sea view.
2009-04-23 11:45 - TP0327 (Hudder Down)
Cornwall. Found easily on edge of parking area. Good views.
2009-04-23 11:15 - TP6581 (Trethingy)
Cornwall. It stands in the hedge on a very high plinth. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-04-22 17:40 - TP0637 (Tolcarne FBM Aux 1)
Cornwall. We used the picture of Mrs Dusty to find this but unfortunately this was not the OS bolt.
2009-04-22 17:30 - TP7224 (Tolcarne)
Cornwall. Near a garage but surprisingly good view. We could see Newlyn lighthouse and St Michael's Mount.
2009-04-22 16:15 - TP0325 (Woon Gumpus Common)
Cornwall. Found quickly, probably luck!
2009-04-22 13:20 - TP7111 (Zennor Cliff)
Cornwall. It is a beautiful area with lovely coastal views but the last 100 yards to get to the pillar is best done in a suit of armour. Built of stone, plug missing.
2009-04-22 10:25 - TP0466 (Porthcurno)
Cornwall. No cars this morning but no surface block either.
2009-04-21 19:05 - TP7518 (Camborne)
Cornwall. It stands in the grounds of the meteorological station, but is hidden by the buildings and cannot be seen from the main gate. We were escorted to the equipment by a very helpful member of staff who gave us a fascinating explanation of the various equipment used nowadays.
2009-04-20 18:45 - TP0291 (Blatchbridge)
Somerset. Looked at Captain Gore-Tex's photo and determinedly excavated for half an hour, only to realise later that we were on the wrong side of the road!
2009-04-20 18:25 - TP6696 (Wadswick)
Wiltshire. On edge of field adjacent to, but above, lane. It is a bit of a scramble up into the field. White painted pillar with asphalt plug.
2009-04-20 15:45 - TP3241 (Fosse Way)
Gloucestershire. Very easy to get to but not the best of locations. Plug missing.
2009-04-20 14:15 - TP0245 (Ettington)
Warwickshire. In grass verge by roadside but first took some finding with trowel.
2009-04-20 13:45 - TP0246 (Heathcote Farm)
Warwickshire. It is located at the roadside, which is rather busy nowadays. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-04-20 12:45 - TP0621 (Warwick FBM Aux 1)
Warwickshire. I knew that we were at the right location but with no prodding tools, failed to uncover it.
2009-04-20 12:20 - TP7236 (Warwick)
Warwickshire. Interesting location in rock cutting near the castle. The Narnia style lamp adds to the character.
2009-04-20 11:05 - TP5224 (Old Milverton)
Warwickshire. It was a beautiful sunny Spring morning and views were good from here. Tarmac plug.
2009-04-20 10:45 - TP4306 (Knowle Hill Resr)
Warwickshire. Grand circular residence now on the site.
2009-04-18 17:50 - TP0516 (Ribblesdale)
Yorkshire. A rare example of an FBM being a long way from a road. It is a lovely spot with good views and it is a full size FBM, only the height tag is missing.
2009-04-18 17:25 - TP6249 (Sulber)
Yorkshire. Walked up from B road, through farm, then onto open land and up to trigpoint. Great views on a lovely sunny afternoon. We made our way from here to the FBM. Plug with deeply indented lettering.
2009-04-18 09:45 - TP2060 (Cave Hill)
Yorkshire. Great little hill and great views on a lovely sunny morning. The nearby waterfall cascading into an underground cave is definitely worth seeing. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-04-15 14:40 - TP0825 (Alma Field)
Lancashire. White painted pillar on the edge of the car park where a trail heads off into the trees. BSM style flush bracket. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2009-04-15 14:20 - TP0140 (Winstanley Stocks)
Lancashire. A few inches down in composted flower bed, but only with dandelions at the moment.
2009-04-15 13:55 - TP1362 (Billinge)
Lancashire. A rare highpoint in these parts and plenty of masts taking advantage of it. It was hazy with very limited views. Graffiti and litter detract from the location. BSM style flush bracket. The plug with raised lettering has been painted white.
2009-04-15 12:10 - TP4307 (Knowsley Park)
Lancashire. Thanks to asbown for arranging the escorted visit to this pillar in the grounds of Knowsley Park. We did not encounter any wild animals. BSM style flush bracket and plug intact with deep indented lettering.
2009-03-30 13:55 - TP0143 (Dent)
Yorkshire. Dent is a lovely village and Dentdale, a lovely valley. This is one of the better locations for a surface block.
2009-03-20 17:35 - TP7501 (St Abbs)
Berwickshire. This active station is on the current OS database and was easily spotted on the roof of the lifeboat station, which sits in a commanding position in the middle of the picturesque harbour at St Abbs.
2009-03-20 16:05 - TP3540 (Gunsgreen Hill)
Berwickshire. It was a pleasant sunny afternoon and the views were very good. This white painted pillar is well maintained and in excellent condition. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-03-20 11:55 - TP6556 (Townhead)
East Lothian. Easy to find, just inside the field alongside a gateway. Pleasant hazy sunshine and good views. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2009-03-20 11:20 - TP4394 (Leehouses)
East Lothian. It was a pleasant spring morning with hazy sunshine and good views. Easy to find, close to the gate off the road. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2009-03-20 11:00 - TP0081 (Gilchriston)
East Lothian. A lot of prodding was done but to no avail.
2009-03-19 18:30 - TP0093 (Detchant)
Northumberland. Moss and grass had overgrown the back of the manhole cover but we cleared this to find the rivet.
2009-03-19 18:20 - TP7150 (Belford (R))
Northumberland. It is getting overgrown by a privet bush inside the railings - and it is only March! Height tag still in place.
2009-03-19 18:10 - TP0588 (Belford FBM Aux 1)
Northumberland. This should be a good time of year for finding a berntsen but the search area was too large as we did not know how far back from the road edge to look.
2009-03-19 16:30 - TP7502 (Seahouses)
Northumberland. This active station is on the current OS database and is one of quite a number that have been attached to lifeboat stations. It was a lovely sunny afternoon for this visit.
2009-03-19 15:55 - TP5323 (Pasture Hill Plantation)
Northumberland. Pleasant views from the edge of the copse. Unusually, the plug has no lettering.
2009-03-19 15:30 - TP0094 (Little Houghton)
Northumberland. Found easily thanks to photos.
2009-03-19 15:10 - TP5127 (Night Fold Field)
Northumberland. It is a short steep climb from the road. There are good coastal views. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-03-19 12:55 - TP2147 (Chester Hill)
Northumberland. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-03-19 12:20 - TP3712 (Hedley Hill)
Northumberland. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2009-03-19 12:10 - TP0514 (Longhorsley)
Northumberland. Daffodil time seems to be the best time of year for visiting this one. It was particularly good today, see photo.
2009-03-19 11:15 - TP0120 (Tranwell Pumphouse)
Northumberland. It was a pleasant spring morning and the rivet was duly found exactly where expected thanks to previous photos.
2009-03-01 15:15 - TP6813 (West House Field)
County Durham. Fairly straight forward, approaching from the west as Father Ted and AndyG. The biggest clue for finding the pillar is that it is at the highest point. Good views, especially of the North York Moors. Plug missing.
2009-03-01 14:00 - TP3779 (High Copelaw Farm)
County Durham. We approached the trig from Aycliffe School, walking along a couple of field edges. The sun was shining and it felt quite Spring like. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2009-02-22 16:45 - TP1062 (Barrowfield)
Westmorland. The scar is a very interesting feature and a rewarding route to the trig pillar. The mushroom domed viewpoint is definately worth visiting, especially on a clear day. Plug missing.
2009-02-22 14:40 - TP3536 (Gummers How)
Lancashire. Easy though steep walk up from the lane to this stone built pillar. Good views, though more clouds on the high peaks of the central Lake District. Concrete infilled plug with a brass spider.
2009-02-20 13:35 - TP6761 (Warton Crag)
Lancashire. Parked in the quarry with the great rock wall between us and the trig. A steep narrow path led up through woods to the right and onto the hill. Plug missing. On returning to the quarry we were very fortunate to observe a pair of peregrine falcons.
2009-02-20 12:00 - TP4154 (Kelleth Rigg)
Westmorland. Walked up through one long field and one gate to reach pillar. Good views of the Howgills. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-02-20 11:25 - TP7488 (Kirkby Stephen (1912))
Westmorland. Found the surface of the old road but no old FBM.
2009-02-07 16:55 - TP6456 (Thornton Grange)
Yorkshire. Our last trig of the day and a quick burst up the snowy slope from the lane to the north, which gives access through a white gate direct into the trig field. A good all round viewpoint. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-02-07 16:05 - TP4810 (Middleham Low Moor)
Yorkshire. The track up from Middleham was quite icy and the snow shows no sign of thawing. Good views, particularly up Coverdale. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-02-07 14:55 - TP5788 (Sail Hill)
Yorkshire. All round snowy views today. The trig is painted white with a gloss paint, which both seems to stand the test of time and act as the perfect camouflage on a day like today. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-02-07 13:55 - TP1890 (Camp Hill)
Yorkshire. Parked to the west on the lane in the Hackfall car park and walked up the track through the woods. Snowy ascent to the trig pillar atop its hill alongside a beech tree. Lovely distant views across to the snow covered North York Moors. All four sightholes open, plastic plug.
2009-02-07 12:40 - TP6436 (Thiefgate)
Yorkshire. Had to walk through deep virgin snow from the nearby lane. Lovely views of the snowy landscape. Plug with deep indented lettering.
2009-01-31 17:55 - TP0076 (Fingland)
Dumfriesshire. Arrived here in the dark but thanks to iainmac's photo, managed to unearth the rivet with the aid of a torch.
2009-01-31 16:10 - TP0503 (Innerleithen)
Peeblesshire. This is a lovely spot and set well back from the road above the stream.
2009-01-31 13:15 - TP0072 (Causewayend)
Lanarkshire. I can't see this still being there but maybe the block is somewhere as hardcore.
2009-01-31 13:05 - TP6296 (Symington Mill)
Lanarkshire. This is certainly damaged, yet the spider and plug with its shallow indented lettering remain.
2009-01-31 12:45 - TP0502 (Thankerton)
Lanarkshire. Situated in a vegetable patch between the corner of the wood and the road.
2009-01-31 12:00 - TP7500 (Drumalbin)
Lanarkshire. We parked alongside a flush bracket at Drumalbin Farm and walked up the track to the weather station enclosure on the hill. This active station is in immaculate condition and, interestingly, is the first active station I have seen that stands on its own tripod on the ground.
2009-01-31 11:15 - TP4410 (Libberton Mains)
Lanarkshire. We entered through the gate from the minor road directly into the field with the trig pillar. The field was stubble at the time of our visit. It was a lovely sunny morning with good views of Tinto. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-01-30 16:15 - TP2471 (Cowden Hill)
Stirlingshire. We accessed from further up the minor road by going through a gate and then following the fields back behind the houses. A vertical assault through brambles and over a fence did not appeal. Asphalt plug.
2009-01-30 14:50 - TP0070 (Westquarter)
Stirlingshire. Found after some prodding thanks to iainmac's photo.
2009-01-30 14:40 - TP6256 (Summerhouse Resr)
Stirlingshire. Still missing!
2009-01-30 14:20 - TP6707 (Wallacestone)
Stirlingshire. Good views of the Firth of Forth. White painted pillar with flush bracket painted black. Plug with shallow indented lettering.
2009-01-30 14:10 - TP5491 (Polmont)
Stirlingshire. I agree with agentmancuso - but he is certainly not alone!
2009-01-30 13:55 - TP0579 (Linlithgow FBM Aux 1)
West Lothian. No more difficult than the nearby FBM to find.
2009-01-30 13:45 - TP7145 (Linlithgow)
West Lothian. We had to uncover this. I wonder how much of a pillar lies beneath?
2009-01-30 12:50 - TP5313 (Parkly Place)
West Lothian. We walked up from near Clarendon House to find this as described. Well done andyc!
2009-01-30 11:50 - TP1372 (Binns Hill)
West Lothian. The gardens for The House of the Binns are open all year. It is a pleasant walk up through the woods, with snowdrops at this time of year, from the house to the tower. The trig pillar stands a few yards away from the base of the tower. Asphalt plug.
2009-01-30 11:23 - TP0075 (South Queensferry)
West Lothian. Found easily with aid of a trowel but it is the painted arrow that gives the biggest clue.
2009-01-30 10:25 - TP7268 (Edinburgh)
Midlothian. Present and correct.
2009-01-29 12:20 - TP6392 (The Holmes)
Roxburghshire. Good views of the nearby Eildon Hills. Was once white painted. Plug with deeply indented lettering.
2009-01-29 11:35 - TP7499 (Kelso)
Roxburghshire. This a fairly recent addition to the OS database and is on the roof of the main building in the showground, across the River Tweed from the town. It is the Leica mushroom dome type, but, interestingly, on a much shorter pole than usual.
2009-01-29 11:20 - TP6832 (Wester Softlaw)
Roxburghshire. Plug with deeply indented lettering.
2009-01-29 11:10 - TP0587 (Kelso FBM Aux 1)
Roxburghshire. Found with the aid of iainmac's photos.
2009-01-29 11:05 - TP0088 (Middle Softlaw)
Roxburghshire. This was buried under two inches of mud but found with the aid of iainmac's photos.
2009-01-29 10:55 - TP7137 (Kelso)
Roxburghshire. This took quite some finding, rummaging through piles of dead leaves, but it is still there.
2009-01-28 17:15 - TP5869 (Selkirk Common)
Selkirkshire. This is easy to walk up to from the road, which we did in fading light. Plug with deeply indented letters.
2009-01-28 13:35 - TP3613 (Hardies Hill)
Roxburghshire. Good views over Hawick and the surrounding countryside. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-01-28 13:00 - TP7240 (Hawick)
Roxburghshire. Recent roadworks may have come close to damaging or burying this, but a bit of foraging found it was still there.
2009-01-28 12:55 - TP0584 (Hawick FBM Aux 1)
Roxburghshire. Despite the photographs, this took a while to uncover with the trowel.
2009-01-28 12:30 - TP0082 (Williestruther Loch)
Roxburghshire. What a lovely location for a rivet, especially on a bright and sunny winter's day.
2009-01-28 11:40 - TP6079 (Southdean Law)
Roxburghshire. This is a great little hill with views all round, including back down to Southdean rivet. Asphalt plug.
2009-01-28 11:15 - TP0086 (Southdean)
Roxburghshire. This is a nice spot for the humble rivet. There is a good view up to the trig pillar on Southdean Law, our next port of call.
2009-01-27 17:15 - TP3187 (Five Lane Ends)
Northumberland. We parked on the lane and followed the western edge of the plantation in a southerly direction. The pillar is then obvious on the left at the end of the plantation. Plug with raised lettering. Well done Graeme!
2009-01-27 15:45 - TP0457 (Callerton Grange)
Northumberland. Found after a few minutes with the aid of a trowel and helped by photographs by iainmac and jimmy.
2009-01-21 16:15 - TP5231 (One Tree Hill Recreation Ground)
Middlesex. The pillar was surrounded by broken glass and covered in graffiti, not a pleasant spot at all. Asphalt plug.
2009-01-21 15:05 - TP4024 (Horsenden Hill)
Middlesex. The hill is a good viewpoint and you can see into four counties as well as Middlesex. Walked to this trig from Kingsbury via the surface block and Barn Hill. Afterwards we continued on foot following the canal to One Tree Hill Recreation Ground. Asphalt plug.
2009-01-21 12:40 - TP1037 (Barn Hill)
Middlesex. It is painted white but currently daubed in mud. Good views of Wembley Stadium and there is a wildlife pond close by. It is pleasant walk up through the woods from the north. Replacement plug.
2009-01-21 12:20 - TP0421 (Kingsbury)
Middlesex. It was found easily as it lay uncovered in the grass between the footpath and the road.
2009-01-20 15:20 - TP3939 (Hilly Fields)
Kent. The view from this blue pillar includes Canary Wharf. We approached on foot from Lewisham station.
2009-01-18 11:45 - TP3673 (Hauxley)
County Durham. It still appears on the last edition of the OS one inch map, selectively revised up to 1973.
2009-01-18 11:30 - TP2159 (Chilton Grange)
County Durham. I have two editions of the OS one inch map, both crown copyright 1961 but the one that had selected revisions up to 1968 does show the trig whereas the one with selected revisions up to 1973 does not.
2009-01-14 10:35 - TP3517 (Grimston)
Yorkshire. There are piles of earth in the field and there was also a group of yellow jacketed men, which is a very ominous sign. Plastic sounding plug when tapped but which looks like concrete.
2009-01-14 10:05 - TP6557 (Towthorpe)
Yorkshire. Pillar will eventually be surrounded by trees. This trig has seen quite a variety of vegetation over the years. Resin plug.
2009-01-14 09:45 - TP0158 (Skelton)
Yorkshire. Found, as described by previous visitors.
2009-01-11 13:55 - TP5215 (Old Cassop)
County Durham. It was a damp and windy day and we quickly strode up the grassy track from the road, checked out the pillar and returned to the warm car. It commands a prominent position on its little hill. Plug missing.
2009-01-10 12:00 - TP0886 (Arncliffe Wood)
Yorkshire. Yes, it was exactly 12 noon. It was a very cold day but bright enough for good views over the North York Moors. Asphalt plug.
2009-01-08 11:55 - TP3171 (Fingay Hill)
Yorkshire. Wide views on a bright winters day. The pillar is now on the western edge of the field. The Ordnance Survey say that the move took place in August 1996. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-01-01 16:25 - TP2676 (Culgaith)
2009-01-01 16:20 - TP7129 (Rose Bank)
Cumberland. Good views and the sky turning pink. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-01-01 15:45 - TP4694 (Maughonby Farm)
Cumberland. Easy enough to spot at this time of year and not too difficult to read flush bracket number. Plug with indented lettering.
2009-01-01 14:45 - TP4130 (Jardens)
Cumberland. Good views but pillar now jammed in with stones and metal gate, barbed wire etc by farmer. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-01-01 13:50 - TP4554 (Low Abbey)
Westmorland. It was a very cold and frosty day but with a winter sun. Plug with raised lettering.
2009-01-01 12:00 - TP6727 (Warcop)
Westmorland. We chose New Year's Day as a quiet day on the ranges for this one. We got to the exact spot at Charlie High at 12 noon, a genuine timing. I wish all triggers could be persuaded to give accurate times.
2008-12-29 13:55 - TP7174 (Northallerton)
Yorkshire. My second attempt at finding this and we were still searching for a quarter of an hour before finding it. Now it should be easier until the growth starts again. Noise from A19.
2008-12-28 14:50 - TP2691 (Currack Rigg)
Yorkshire. Approached from Booze Wood to the north on a compass bearing and came straight to the pillar. Good views though predominantly cloudy. Asphalt plug.
2008-12-27 15:55 - TP2035 (Castle House Farm)
Yorkshire. This is a lovely white painted trig pillar. There are good views in all directions but particularly to the ridge on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park. Asphalt plug.
2008-12-27 14:10 - TP4628 (Manor Cottage)
Yorkshire. This is really well hidden in the hedge. Constant noise from the A19. Plug with indented lettering - I think!
2008-12-25 15:10 - TP6871 (Whit Fell)
Yorkshire. Christmas Day is a quiet day on the ranges! We walked in from the road with the trigpoint visible ahead on the hill. You pass a rifle range on your left and then climb up the heather-clad slope to the summit. The views are good in all directions. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-12-25 14:20 - TP3950 (Hipswell)
Yorkshire. We took advantage of it being Christmas Day and all quiet on the western front to search for this one. It is not there.
2008-12-25 12:30 - TP0153 (Hunton)
Yorkshire. I did not have the sketch, only Ted's three year old photo. We found the right spot but a lot of excavating through piles of dog mess would have been necessary.
2008-12-25 12:05 - TP5534 (Prospect Hill)
Yorkshire. Went to the Christmas morning communion service in Catterick then took advantage of the lovely sunhine to visit this trigpoint. There were three big horses in the trig field to wish us Happy Christmas. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-12-24 14:10 - TP4071 (Hunters Hill Farm)
Yorkshire. Views in all directions but rather cloudy. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-12-10 14:00 - TP7498 (Teddington)
Middlesex. Along with Stratford this is a new London Active Station on the OS database and possibly replaces Vauxhall. This one is of a new design, not a mushroom dome but ratther a narrower disc shape on top of the usual pole. This one is on the roof of a large new building which is part of The National Physical Laboratory. It took us ages to spot it but after circumnavigating the grounds we found the best view to be from Coleshill Road, look through the gap between house numbers 42 and 44.
2008-12-10 12:00 - TP0420 (Ham)
Surrey. My third log at exactly midday! If I keep practising will I get as good as Sagina nivalis (neither Garvald Punks nor Peregrinus provide anonymity) and Iainmac in arriving bang on noon? I log this as unreachable and actually not visible either! Today it was under about two feet of water as the River Thames was rather swollen from recent rains.
2008-12-09 16:00 - TP7497 (Stratford)
Essex. This is a new active station on the current OS database. Along with Teddington it may be a replacement for Vauxhall. The exciting thing about this one is that it is of a new design. It is not the Leica mushroom shaped dome but rather a Trimble narrower disc shape on top of the pole. It is on the roof of a large building, which is part of The University of East London.
2008-11-30 16:10 - TP0128 (Hartlepool)
County Durham. Success! The rivet is still there in its original location. Traces of white paint still exist, including a circle around the rivet, which is to be found close to the blue railings. See Late Starter's photo for exact location.
2008-11-30 15:35 - TP3647 (Hart)
County Durham. Parked at the edge of Hart, crossed the A179 and followed a grassy track alongside a field boundary uphill to the trig. Plug missing.
2008-11-30 15:10 - TP5622 (Reddings Hill)
County Durham. One field up from the road and then behind the hedge in the top right corner. The pillar was covered in a hard frost today. Plastic plug.
2008-11-30 14:25 - TP0124 (Garmondsway)
County Durham. The block was uncovered, otherwise it would not have been easy to find without Jimmy's clue about the shrubs.
2008-11-30 14:10 - TP5615 (Red Lion Farm)
County Durham. The path up from the road was hemmed in against the hedge by a fence separating it from a field with horses. This had become a trench of mud with additional manure, kindly donated from the field. There is a reasonable view from the pillar but the constant noise from the A19 is too obtrusive. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-29 16:05 - TP3432 (Grange Farm)
County Durham. Accompanied by Late Starter, we got to this one just in time to enjoy a lovely backdrop of a pink sky. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-29 15:50 - TP3074 (Esh)
County Durham. A pleasant hilltop, but definitely no triangulation pillar.
2008-11-29 15:25 - TP5459 (Pit House Plantation)
County Durham. Great atmosphere in the late sunshine, with wide views. Asphalt plug.
2008-11-29 14:30 - TP5266 (Ox Close Farm)
2008-11-29 14:25 - TP7132 (Tripsy Bank)
County Durham. Walked up the footpath from the north and came through the woods, returning round the woods to save fence climbing. Not marked on 1:50000 map, but is marked on 1:25000. Plug missing.
2008-11-29 12:50 - TP3040 (Eldon Hall Farm)
County Durham. What a great viewpoint! From the track just below the trig you have no idea how good the view will be, but those few yards make all the difference. Plug missing.
2008-11-29 12:00 - TP0696 (Royal Oak)
County Durham. The saplings are growing and this will be a pleasant spot again before too long as signs of quarrying disappear. Only my second log at exactly midday, unlike a couple of well known website members! However, I like to be accurate as it makes more sense for lighting and conditions, especially when photographs are uploaded.
2008-11-29 11:35 - TP6560 (Toy Top)
County Durham. Parked at entrance to old picnic area and made our way through the woods to reach the pillar just before the edge of the woods. The view west from the edge of the woods is quite good. Plug missing.
2008-11-18 15:20 - TP7495 (Wear Head)
County Durham. This active station is listed on the current OS database. It is located on the roof of a garage building belonging to Northumbrian Water, below the dam of Burnhope Reservoir.
2008-11-18 13:40 - TP1783 (Burnhope Seat)
County Durham Top. Ascended from the road with Late Starter. We enjoyed sunshine until reaching the summit plateau, when low cloud rolled in to obscure the views. The summit area was very boggy and it took quite a while to reach the pillar, trying to avoid deep water. The pillar has very slight damage, only to the top and as such is on the borderline of good and slightly damaged. Plug missing.
2008-11-16 16:30 - TP2234 (Clipston)
Nottinghamshire. Visited this at dusk and although there are no views from the trig itself, the views over the lights of Nottingham in one direction and the setting sun in another made this a memorable trigpoint. Asphalt plug.
2008-11-16 16:05 - TP7494 (Keyworth)
Nottinghamshire. This active station is listed on the current OS database and is to be found on the roof at the British Geological Survey building. We got permission at the gatehouse to take a closer look.
2008-11-16 15:25 - TP5993 (Six Hills)
Leicestershire. Not far off the busy A46. Trig is in a bramble patch in a small area managed by the Wetlands Trust. Plastic plug.
2008-11-16 14:30 - TP7025 (Wolvey Heath)
Warwickshire. Not far up a track from the road, the trig is accompanied by a high water tank and a green hut belonging to vodafone. Plug with indented lettering and a very green spider.
2008-11-16 14:15 - TP2240 (Cloudesley Bush)
Warwickshire. The trig sits on a high plinth alongside a hedge, which borders the Fosse Way. The hedge restricts views to the east. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-16 13:40 - TP1618 (Bretford)
Warwickshire. It was a muddy walk up from the village hall but the trig is in a commanding position for extensive views. Trig is a distinct reddish colour. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-16 12:40 - TP3348 (Gibbet Hill)
Warwickshire. Went round the back of the houses and tried to look over the fence but row of spikes on the fence and the height of the fence prevent this.
2008-11-14 14:00 - TP2449 (Coton Park)
Derbyshire. A lovely walk up from handy car park. Late afternoon sun and autumn colours enhanced the views. A different path down made this a pleasant circular walk. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-14 12:25 - TP5456 (Pistern Hill)
Derbyshire. Approached from footpath to the east along a muddy track which follows the hedge line. Good views across areas of new planting in the National Forest. Black plastic mountain now dwarfs the trig. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-14 11:55 - TP0461 (Melbourne Common)
Derbyshire. Interesting in that it had been painted red and yellow.
2008-11-14 11:50 - TP0608 (Melbourne FBM Aux 1)
Derbyshire. Easy to find in the grass thanks to recent visits.
2008-11-14 11:45 - TP7162 (Melbourne)
Derbyshire. Hidden behind a hydrant and somewhat covered by soil, compared to other FBMs. Height tag present.
2008-11-14 11:35 - TP5704 (Robin Hill)
Derbyshire. Wide views and some good autumn colours nearby. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-11-09 15:55 - TP3080 (Etherley Lane)
County Durham. Boggy fields following the recent heavy rain, hampered progress to this trig, despite its proximity to the road. Pylon line close to the trig detracts from location. Plug missing.
2008-11-09 15:25 - TP3788 (High House)
County Durham. Barbed wire prevented easy access to the trig directly from the road. Plug missing.
2008-11-09 15:05 - TP2778 (Diggins)
County Durham. Long gone and it would seem the area has changed somewhat over the years as the opencast marked on the map has gone. There is also a new fence and field boundary.
2008-11-09 14:40 - TP1505 (Blue House)
County Durham. It was a cold, wet and windy day. Plug missing. Flush bracket only just above ground level.
2008-11-02 16:10 - TP3765 (High Arnside)
Lancashire. A fantastic small Lakeland fell, known also as Black Crag. Arrived here at sunset with Late starter and we were spellbound by the views in such wonderful lighting. Metallic replacement plug.
2008-10-30 15:35 - TP5611 (Red House Farm)
2008-10-30 15:05 - TP6814 (West Kenton Farm)
Northumberland. People still out with their dogs.
2008-10-30 11:30 - TP6732 (Warden Hill)
Northumberland. A bright autumn morning with views in all directions. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-10-28 15:20 - TP3534 (Guisborough Moor)
Yorkshire. A fantastic Autumn day with views in all directions. Plug missing.
2008-09-05 13:05 - TP4042 (How Hill)
Cumberland. The weather was terrible so I did not experience a lovely view. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-08-05 10:15 - TP3633 (Harnsey Moss)
Cumberland. Good views out to sea, up and down the coast and into the Lake District. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-08-03 10:20 - TP5861 (Seascale)
Cumberland. A pleasant Sunday morning with quite a few golfers out on the course. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-07-26 12:30 - TP6322 (Tarnriggmoor)
Cumberland. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-07-25 11:15 - TP5587 (Ravelsaye)
Cumberland. Plug with indented lettering. I had to remove stones then scrape soil away to reveal the flush bracket number. I replaced the stones.
2008-07-21 13:40 - TP0513 (Wolsingham)
County Durham. Grass well trampled in front of FBM.
2008-07-04 22:15 - TP7152 (Loch Leven)
Inverness-shire. Found quite easily following others' descriptions.
2008-07-04 22:10 - TP0564 (Loch Leven FBM Aux 1)
Inverness-shire. Found easily thanks to Iainmac's photos. Maybe it has recently been used.
2008-06-26 11:30 - TP1297 (Ben Scurrival)
Inverness-shire. Good views but not particularly good weather. Plastic plug.
2008-06-25 18:30 - TP1295 (Ben Scrien (Eriskay I))
Inverness-shire. Eriskay island top. There is a viewfinder screwed onto the top of the trigpoint. Good views, as would be expected from the highest point on the island.
2008-06-25 17:00 - TP5487 (Pollachar)
Inverness-shire. The field is rough with ditches and the grass was wet for my visit.
2008-06-25 16:20 - TP3573 (Hallan Cemetery)
Inverness-shire. Plug with raised lettering.
2008-06-25 14:55 - TP0874 (Ardivachar)
Inverness-shire. Plug with raised lettering.
2008-06-25 14:35 - TP0849 (Anaigh)
Inverness-shire. Plug with raised letters.
2008-06-25 14:20 - TP0797 (Aird)
Inverness-shire. Tarmac plug.
2008-06-25 13:00 - TP2192 (Claddach)
Inverness-shire. Tarmac plug.
2008-06-25 10:15 - TP4908 (Moor Hill (Berneray Island))
Inverness-shire. The Berneray island top. Tarmac plug.
2008-06-22 13:30 - TP7261 (Butt of Lewis)
Ross and Cromarty. It was a wet and very windy day. I am sure this is a grand place in calmer weather.
2008-06-22 13:30 - TP7262 (Butt of Lewis 2)
Ross and Cromarty. It was a wet and windy day so I didn't stop long.
2008-06-21 13:40 - TP6131 (St Kilda)
Inverness-shire. A major goal achieved in getting here. It has been on the wish list for years. The whole place is unique, unlike any other Scottish island. The approach to Conachair and the descent leave you open to regular attacks from Great Skuas at this time of year. The number of nesting pairs is still on the increase, there weren't any before 1968. Plug with raised lettering.

2008-06-19 11:20 - TP0492 (Spean Bridge)
2008-06-12 12:15 - TP0099 (Maryport)
Cumberland. It may or may not still be there but now is the wrong time of year to do a thorough search.
2008-06-02 13:00 - TP7263 (Carlisle)
Cumberland. Seen from the top of the aforementioned fire escape. Good work Chrisbombington.
2008-06-02 10:10 - TP1770 (Burgh By Sands)
Cumberland. Trig stands on a plinth. Plug missing.
2008-06-02 09:55 - TP3375 (Glasson)
Cumberland. Trig stands on a large plinth. Plug missing.
2008-05-31 08:45 - TP4629 (Manor Farm)
Cumberland. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-05-25 15:55 - TP3137 (Fellhouse Fell)
Northumberland. Wide view in all directions. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-05-25 11:25 - TP3806 (High Scales)
Cumberland. Plug missing.
2008-05-24 11:10 - TP5837 (Scarness)
Cumberland. A pleasant location, a shapely tree and good views. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-05-24 10:35 - TP6866 (Whin Bank)
Cumberland. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-05-24 10:25 - TP5091 (New Cowper)
2008-05-24 10:15 - TP0810 (Aldoth)
Cumberland. I had to fight through the gorse to get to the trig itself. Plug missing.
2008-05-24 10:15 - TP7128 (Raise How)
Cumberland. A better location than its replacement - in the open rather than in a gorse hedge. But, a lower score because it's not there!
2008-05-21 08:30 - TP6252 (Summer Grove)
Cumberland. I failed to find this a few days before but thanks to previous logs, I was successful today. Plug with raised lettering.
2008-05-18 11:50 - TP2949 (Eaglesfield)
Cumberland. Views across to hills in Galloway as well as Lakeland. Plug missing.
2008-05-17 08:35 - TP4792 (Mickley)
Northumberland. A damp and misty morning with no views. Plastic plug.
2008-05-09 10:50 - TP3542 (Guyhirn Left Bank)
Cambridgeshire. Plug with raised lettering.
2008-05-06 12:45 - TP0118 (Stotley Hall)
County Durham. Thanks to Shacklesborough's fairly recent visit and his photograph, I was able to find this. I do not have GPS.
2008-05-06 12:15 - TP0116 (Lintzgarth)
County Durham. Bridge and parapet replaced. Rivets are not very exciting at the best of times but stopping to look at where a rivet used to be is fairly anorak behaviour!
2008-05-06 11:30 - TP2052 (Catton Beacon)
Northumberland. A warm sunny day, the best of the year so far. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-05-04 09:15 - TP0133 (Mansriggs)
Lancashire. This took a little time but with the help of photos and a trowel, it was found.
2008-05-04 09:10 - TP0597 (Ulverston FBM Aux 1)
Lancashire. Found with help of photos.
2008-05-04 09:10 - TP7232 (Ulverston)
Lancashire. Easily found.
2008-04-29 15:05 - TP2728 (Danby Moor)
Yorkshire. Good views in all directions on a bright sunny afternoon. Plug missing.
2008-04-23 16:50 - TP6037 (Snape)
Yorkshire. Good views on a sunny spring afternoon. Plastic plug.
2008-04-23 16:30 - TP0517 (Wetherby)
2008-04-20 12:50 - TP0102 (Loweswater)
Cumberland. A van was parked on top of where I believe the surface block to be, or at least where I needed to stand to excavate. Under the front of the van I found the marker on Fasgadh's photo, but the surface block is what Chrisbombington found and that is what we are supposed to find.
2008-04-18 19:15 - TP0117 (Beaufront)
Northumberland. It was under a few inches of soil, but this time of year is still relatively ok for finding these things.
2008-04-18 19:05 - TP0594 (Hexham FBM Aux 1)
Northumberland. I had tried to find this in 2007 but had not been successful. This time I was luckier.
2008-04-18 18:40 - TP2344 (Coldtown Beacon)
Northumberland. Yes, the gates on this rough road are a pain if you are in a car on your own! Tarmac plug.
2008-04-16 10:10 - TP6601 (Tudhoe Moor Farm)
County Durham. A car park with a bit of history!
2008-04-04 18:40 - TP1022 (Bardon Hill)
Leicestershire County Top. A pleasant evening stroll to a fine viewpoint. White painted trigpoint with tarmac plug.
2008-03-14 12:10 - TP6513 (Tom Smiths)
Yorkshire. Tarmac plug. White painted trig in ploughed field.
2008-03-14 11:40 - TP5681 (Rievaulx Hole)
Yorkshire. Good views today. Tarmac plug.
2008-03-12 17:15 - TP0160 (Gilling East)
Yorkshire. Found the spot thanks to Iainmac's photo. In patch of snowdrops.
2008-03-12 15:05 - TP2055 (Caulkleys Bank)
Yorkshire. Stone trig. Good views can be had from this ridge.
2008-03-12 14:30 - TP5926 (Sheepclose Farm)
Yorkshire. White painted. Replacement plug, possibly concrete. I do not think this has been moved, my map is 1982.
2008-03-12 14:00 - TP3655 (Harton)
Yorkshire. Plastic plug. White painted trig.
2008-03-12 13:35 - TP3114 (Farfield)
Yorkshire. Tarmac plug. Trig in arable field, but not far from field edge.
2008-03-12 12:55 - TP4358 (Langton Wold)
2008-03-12 09:40 - TP7496 (Yearsley)
Yorkshire. This active station is listed on the current OS database and is located on the roof of the service building at Yearsley covered reservoir. It is very close to where the trig pillar once stood and the accurate grid reference given by the Ordnance Survey is SE5875374451. In order to upload this new page I have had to enter a slightly false grid reference.
2008-02-21 13:05 - TP5674 (Richmond Park)
Surrey. I had a good walk from Richmond Station through Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common to Wimbledon Station. I'm not sure what the replacement plug is made of.
2008-02-16 13:25 - TP7029 (Wood Close)
Rutland County Top. A bright and sunny but cold day. Good views all round. Plug with indented lettering.
2008-01-20 15:00 - TP3395 (Gog Magog)
Cambridgeshire. Plug with raised lettering.
2007-12-29 12:55 - TP7363 (Shotwicklodge)
Cheshire. I spent quite some time looking for this, with the help of previous logs, but to no avail. The whole area has been churned up due to the roadworks and the ditches have been excavated. It may be gone or it may still be there somewhere.
2007-12-11 16:20 - TP6146 (Stainburn Hill)
Yorkshire. Twilight, so not much of a view. Plastic plug.
2007-11-30 15:40 - TP6992 (Windycote)
Staffordshire. Plug with indented lettering. Muddy on the corner of the lane but the trig field was fine.
2007-11-05 13:35 - TP6371 (The Cranks)
Yorkshire. Plug with indented lettering. It is well hidden in the hedge and has slight damage to the top.
2007-10-25 16:55 - TP7245 (Hexham)
Northumberland. Easy enough to find though not as prominent as other FBMs.
2007-10-02 14:00 - TP3565 (Haile)
Cumberland. Easy access up track and into summit field. Plug missing.
2007-10-02 13:30 - TP0591 (Wasdale FBM Aux 1)
Cumberland. I spent quite a while looking about 2 yards away and then decided to just check slightly higher up - and there it was, obvious. I was successful in finding all of the Wasdale Three.
2007-10-02 13:20 - TP7238 (Wasdale)
Cumberland. Found it straightaway, under edge of the rhododendron bush. The easiest of the Wasdale Three.
2007-10-02 13:15 - TP0101 (Old Strands)
Cumberland. The roller, which I had hoped to use as a reference, had gone, but it's imprint was still there. I looked for a loose sod of turf as I did not have GPS or a sketch. I did not find one, so just decided where I thought it was and prodded with my trowel - right on top of it! This is the hardest of the Wasdale Three.
2007-09-28 15:05 - TP5394 (Penshaw Hill)
County Durham. Alongside an interesting local landmark, which is visible for miles. Plug missing.
2007-09-28 14:45 - TP3663 (Hasting Hill)
County Durham. I expect that this was once a nice little hill but the encroachment of modern society has taken its toll. Plug missing - which is hardly surprising.
2007-09-28 11:30 - TP3755 (Hexham Racecourse)
Northumberland. Looks freshly white painted. Plug with indented lettering.
2007-09-28 11:15 - TP2989 (East Lightside Farm)
Northumberland. Painted white. Good views, farm is for sale. Plug with indented lettering.
2007-09-28 10:45 - TP6998 (Winnowshill Common)
Northumberland. Painted white but still need to get very close before it is visible. I had to confirm the flush bracket number by feel! Was going to give it a low score because of no view but gave it 5 for its secret location. Plug with indented lettering.
2007-09-28 09:45 - TP5268 (Oxen Law)
County Durham. Good views in all directions. Plug with raised lettering.
2007-09-26 13:40 - TP0113 (Knarsdale)
Northumberland. I forgot my trowel and the grass was so long and folded over that, despite a good kick around, I drew a blank.
2007-09-26 13:05 - TP4912 (Moor Yeat)
Cumberland. I don't consider the crack to be serious. Plug with indented lettering.
2007-09-26 13:00 - TP7241 (Wetheral)
Cumberland. If it is there, I think January would be the best month for a thorough search. Some FBMs are only at ground level.
2007-09-26 13:00 - TP0108 (Wetheral Pasture)
Cumberland. Using the drain as a reference, I went straight to it and lifted a loose sod of turf to expose the block.
2007-09-26 12:55 - TP0592 (Wetheral FBM Aux 1)
Cumberland. Still fairly exposed after previous visit.
2007-09-25 12:10 - TP0106 (Coniston)
Lancashire. Thanks to previous logs I knew where to look and found it straightaway.
2007-09-25 08:15 - TP0137 (Sampool Bridge)
Westmorland. Collected this one on my way past early in the morning.
2007-09-24 10:30 - TP5673 (Richmond Hill)
Cumberland. No sign of this either on the map or on the ground. Looked in front gardens but highest point may actually be in a back garden.
2007-09-24 10:15 - TP5310 (Park House)
Cumberland. Easy access from Park House Farm road apart from multiple fences by trig itself. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
2007-09-20 14:45 - TP0004 (Danby Beacon)
Yorkshire. Roadside trig but a fine location. It is white painted and has a plastic plug.
2007-09-20 14:05 - TP6017 (Sleights Moor)
Yorkshire. Next to a tumulus on this wide heather summit. Views to Whitby and the North Sea. Broken tarmac plug.
2007-09-19 16:50 - TP1072 (Barton Rigg)
Yorkshire. Much drier approach today as there has not been much rain for the last couple of weeks. Good view. Tarmac plug.
2007-09-19 15:00 - TP4089 (Hutton Mulgrave Moor)
Yorkshire. No view at all, quite a secret location now. Plug with indented lettering.
2007-09-18 11:45 - TP6927 (Whorlton Moor)
Yorkshire. Good views over the moors and north to Middlesbrough and the North Sea beyond. Plug missing.
2007-09-17 13:20 - TP4689 (Masty Bank)
Yorkshire. Good views, rolling countryside. Plug with indented lettering.
2007-09-14 11:05 - TP1881 (Calton Hill)
Midlothian. Excellent views of the city and surroundings. Tarmac plug.
2007-09-13 15:40 - TP1574 (Braid Hills)
Midlothian. I parked at the Royal Observatory and after doing Blackford Hill, walked across to this one. It turned out to be a very pleasant country walk - in a city. Mortar plug.
2007-09-13 14:55 - TP1446 (Blackford Hill)
Midlothian. Where is the best view of Edinburgh? Arthur's Seat, Calton Hill or Blackford Hill. It is certainly very good from here. Plug missing.
2007-09-13 14:20 - TP2929 (Dunsapie Tank)
Midlothian. The grass had just been cut and the groundsmen were busy strimming away nearby but had already relocked the fortified enclosure.
2007-09-12 09:30 - TP4695 (Maulds Meaburn Moor)
Westmorland. Good views all round. Plug with raised lettering.
2007-09-11 16:20 - TP0115 (Sleightholme Moor)
Yorkshire. A nice location for the humble rivet.
2007-09-10 09:10 - TP1648 (Broad Lea)
Westmorland. Cows in field with large bull taking care of them. Bull stood up as I approached but managed to get to trig and slip away again. Plug with raised lettering.
2007-09-09 12:45 - TP0105 (Legburthwaite)
Cumberland. It's only a rivet on a manhole cover alongside a road but it's in a nice part of the world.
2007-09-09 08:30 - TP7434 (St Bees)
Cumberland. Active station on RNLI building at start of Coast to Coast Walk.
2007-09-07 15:35 - TP4087 (Hutton Bank)
Cumberland. The hedge line it was once in has now gone. It is now at the top of a large field, easily accessed from an open gateway onto lane to south west. Asphalt plug.
2007-09-07 11:45 - TP6858 (Wharrels Hill)
Cumberland. Reasonable views from here in most directions, except for backdrop of huge mast with all its attachments. Plug missing.
2007-09-07 08:55 - TP0456 (Demesne)
Cumberland. Exposed from previous visit - thanks.
2007-09-02 11:50 - TP4822 (Military Road)
Northumberland. Trig situated on roadside close to Hadrian's Wall Path. No real view. Plug missing.
2007-08-23 09:55 - TP2301 (Coal Gate)
Lancashire. There is slight damage to the top as previous photographs show, but still, I feel, an overall "good". Great views on a remarkably clear morning. Indented lettering.
2007-06-20 09:55 - TP6745 (Warnell Fell)
Cumberland. There are surprisingly good views from here in all directions. The plug has indented lettering.
2007-06-07 14:20 - TP0111 (Hardendale Fell)
2007-05-12 20:45 - TP0583 (Edinburgh FBM Aux 1)
Midlothian. After visiting the FBM I looked for this and it didn't take long thanks to previous visit logs.
2007-05-12 20:40 - TP7213 (Edinburgh)
Midlothian. Not a very prominent location but easily enough found.
2007-05-11 10:50 - TP4735 (Meall Na H'Eilrig)
Inverness-shire. White painted trig with good all round views.
2007-05-10 14:20 - TP6230 (Strone)
Inverness-shire. Plug missing. Very mossy trig hidden in the trees. A very secluded location.
2007-05-07 14:45 - TP0039 (Gairlochy)
2007-04-30 09:45 - TP4980 (Mullach Mor (Rhum))
Inverness-shire. Vanessa with indented lettering. A less frequented part of a less frequented island. Trackless, but that's the appeal. Great views of Rum Cuillin and of Skye.
2007-04-29 11:05 - TP0911 (Askival)
Inverness-shire. Graded as slightly damaged (see photo)because it could be a lot worse. Concrete plug. Superb location in superb weather. A truly memorable mountain day.
2007-04-28 12:55 - TP5244 (Orval (Rhum))
Inverness-shire. Vanessa with plug missing. Absolutely superb location in fantastic weather. The views over the Rum Cuillin are excellent from here as are the views west to Canna and the Outer Hebrides.
2007-04-27 20:15 - TP0036 (Mallaig)
2007-04-27 19:45 - TP7284 (Malaig)
2007-04-10 19:10 - TP1763 (Bullamoor Resr)
Yorkshire. Indented lettering. Work still going on on the site.
2007-04-06 14:35 - TP7266 (Daresbury)
Cheshire. Nobody about on Good Friday.
2007-04-06 11:40 - TP1123 (Beckfoot)
Cumberland. Good views to both the Lake District and across the Solway. Indented lettering.
2007-04-06 11:20 - TP6279 (Swarthy Hill)
Cumberland. The yellow gorse was a delight in the sunshine. Good views out over the Solway. Plug missing.
2007-04-05 13:25 - TP7428 (Ambleside)
Westmorland. This is an active station and is on the OS database. The dome shaped antenna is attached to the end of the building.
2007-04-05 10:30 - TP6446 (Thornbank)
Cumberland. Easy access from bridleway. Plenty of young lambs today. Plug with raised lettering.
2007-03-20 13:50 - TP4131 (Jerusalem)
Westmorland. Plastic or resin plug. Surprisingly good views in all directions.
2007-03-20 13:00 - TP5940 (Sheriffs Park)
Westmorland. Asphalt plug.
2007-03-01 10:50 - TP6835 (Westerhope)
Northumberland. I too had previously looked for this on the grassland and covered reservoir. It is still safe in the garden and you are basically alongside it when you look over the back fence, but you cannot see the flush bracket.
2007-03-01 10:30 - TP1722 (Brunton Bridge Farm)
Northumberland. OS plug with indented lettering.
2007-03-01 10:20 - TP4798 (Middle Brunton West Farm)
Northumberland. Plug missing. I got through the hedge a few yards east of the trig.
2007-03-01 10:05 - TP4194 (Killingworth)
Northumberland. Asphalt plug.
2007-03-01 09:55 - TP2967 (East Benton Farm)
Northumberland. No trig and no score. The onward march of development has transformed this place.
2007-02-28 14:50 - TP6207 (Stone Beds)
Yorkshire. Raised lettering on OS plug.
2007-02-28 14:35 - TP4180 (Kex Gill Moor)
Yorkshire. Still missing.
2007-02-28 14:15 - TP4423 (Ling Park)
Yorkshire. Painted white, including the asphalt plug. Good views but the scruffiness of the area alongside the trig keeps the score down.
2007-02-25 16:25 - TP1120 (Beaumont Hill)
County Durham. Asphalt plug.
2007-02-18 16:55 - TP1804 (Burton Grange)
Lincolnshire. Took a break from driving along the A17 to visit this trig. It has raised letters on the OS cap.
2007-02-13 15:35 - TP4179 (Keverstone Grange)
County Durham. Another mild day in a mild winter. Asphalt plug.
2007-02-08 16:30 - TP0156 (Marton Le Moor)
Yorkshire. Plug replaced by plastic cap.
2007-02-08 16:10 - TP3425 (Grafton)
Yorkshire. Excellent condition, maintained by Harrogate Rambling Club and painted white.
2007-02-07 13:30 - TP1250 (Bells Tip)
County Durham. This could easily be lost to expansion of the industrial complex. I bet it has seen some changes in its lifetime.
2007-02-07 13:05 - TP3978 (Holme House Farm)
County Durham. It is strange really why there is still an arable field here, surrounded by roads, trading estates, housing and a prison.
2007-02-02 15:55 - TP4697 (Mayland Lea Farm)
County Durham. Plug missing.
2007-02-02 15:45 - TP7049 (Woodland)
County Durham. Good views this afternoon. Asphalt plug.
2007-01-30 12:05 - TP2399 (Copperthwaite Moor)
Yorkshire. Fine heather summit, just set back a little from the viewpoint of Fremington Edge. Plug missing.
2007-01-30 10:55 - TP1530 (Booze Moor)
Yorkshire. Good views. Plug missing.
2007-01-26 15:40 - TP6034 (Smeaton Farm)
Yorkshire. There is quite a chunk out of a top corner but as the plug and spider are still there and the pillar is sound, I am upgrading this to slightly damaged. Others graded as damaged, such as Moel Wnion in Caernarfonshire, are much much worse, basically wrecked.
2007-01-26 15:10 - TP6254 (Summerfield House)
Yorkshire. It stands proudly in the middle of and at the highest point of a large field, known as Bratchet Hill. Asphalt plug.
2007-01-19 15:05 - TP0122 (Eryholme)
Yorkshire. It is currently uncovered. Now is the time of year for these things.
2007-01-19 14:47 - TP6841 (Westfield House)
Yorkshire. I approached from the south. I was going to grade it as good until I read previous logs. As I did not do a thorough check and trigs tend not to heal themselves I will leave it as slightly damaged. It has a plastic plug.
2007-01-19 14:25 - TP3361 (Girsby Grange)
Yorkshire. I visited the original location and looked for the base where it once stood but with no luck. I can't confirm one way or the other whether it is still in the farmyard.
2007-01-19 14:15 - TP4909 (Moor House Farm)
Yorkshire. I looked to see if I could tell where it stood but alas, no.
2007-01-19 14:05 - TP5606 (Red Hall Farm)
Yorkshire. Asphalt plug.
2007-01-19 13:50 - TP0127 (Newby Grange)
Yorkshire. Easily found as it is currently uncovered. The time of year helps, of course.
2007-01-16 12:47 - TP4929 (Moss Mire)
County Durham. A remarkably good viewpoint. Plug missing.
2007-01-16 12:15 - TP3930 (Hillingdon Farm)
County Durham. I walked in along the footpath from the south east. Plug missing.
2007-01-09 23:56 - TP4086 (Hutton)
Yorkshire. On highest point but with easy access from the lane.
2007-01-09 16:17 - TP2343 (Coldharbour Lane)
Yorkshire. Ivy still on top.
2007-01-09 16:15 - TP7118 (Peter Hill)
Yorkshire. The A19 is now a busy road and the trig is long gone and replaced.
2007-01-09 15:50 - TP4828 (Mill Hill Farm)
Yorkshire. Well in the hedge now. The flush bracket is no problem as that faces east out of the hedge but I did not remove the vegetation covering the top.
2007-01-09 15:40 - TP0518 (Bulmer)
Yorkshire. Three days after Ted. Comments the same.
2007-01-09 15:30 - TP6923 (Whitwell Grange)
Yorkshire. Field still soggy. Concrete plug.
2007-01-09 15:20 - TP7123 (Hildenley Resr)
Yorkshire. It is not surprising it is missing, as it was replaced.
2007-01-09 15:20 - TP1601 (Braygate Street Resr)
Yorkshire. I am only 3 days after Ted but can report quick progress on the fence. It is going up fast, is currently halfway round and will most likely be completed by the end of the week. It will not be a fence that can easily be climbed - it is a typical reservoir fence I'm sorry to report. The future looks like being "unreachable but visible".
2007-01-09 09:30 - TP7097 (Yearsley)
Yorkshire. Strange how a lot of reservoir trigs survive but this has not.
2006-12-28 15:30 - TP4866 (Moel Wnion)
Caernarfonshire. This is badly damaged! The bottom half of the stone built trigpoint is still there though with more on the ground nearby. It is no longer marked on OS maps.
2006-12-28 12:05 - TP0522 (Conwy)
Caernarfonshire. My "furthest from a road" FBM. Good views from nearby Conwy Mountain.
2006-12-28 11:30 - TP0173 (Llanfairfechan)
Caernarfonshire. Only for enthusiasts! It is at the end of the layby on the eastbound carriageway.
2006-12-27 16:00 - TP2090 (Cefn-Cwmmwd)
Anglesey. Another difficult trig to get at but with less vegetation due to the time of year I even managed to get to the flush bracket.
2006-12-27 15:00 - TP5661 (Rhoscolyn)
Anglesey. Park at church and follow track to southwest, then up to the trig with views over the coastline.
2006-12-27 14:25 - TP6565 (Tre-Arddur)
Anglesey. You can reach the trig without any fence climbing if you leave the main road at the correct point (north of minor road to houses). The OS Explorer map helps.
2006-12-27 13:40 - TP0519 (Holyhead)
Anglesey. Easy to find alongside path through public park.
2006-12-27 13:10 - TP7423 (Holyhead)
Anglesey. This is the Holyhead active station and the actual pole is attached to the wall and roof of a building. It is on the OS database.
2006-12-27 12:30 - TP5368 (Pendefig)
Anglesey. Access from gate into field.
2006-12-27 12:15 - TP0770 (Aberffraw)
Anglesey. Good views from this prominent trig. Plug missing.
2006-12-27 11:55 - TP0170 (Hermon)
Anglesey. The base of the trigpoint has a build up of grass cuttings and compost and the flush bracket was difficult to get at.
2006-12-27 11:20 - TP3208 (Porthamel)
Anglesey. The fields on Anglesey are like fortresses!
2006-12-26 15:20 - TP1740 (Bryniau)
Caernarfonshire. Easy access from near road junction to southwest into field then slope of bracken, which is no problem in winter months. Plug missing.
2006-12-19 10:30 - TP7281 (London)
Surrey. I had a day in London. Most people head for the sights or the shops. I headed for Vauxhall to see the OS office and a tripod on a roof! If starting at the Vauxhall Bridge end of Vauxhall Walk, you come to Graphite Square on your right. To get a view of the tripod aerial on the roof, continue up Vauxhall Walk for another 100 yards or so and then look back. I log it as good because it will be. We can't expect to walk up to and touch many of these Active Stations.
2006-12-16 13:50 - TP0119 (Sandwath)
Yorkshire. I had a good dig around in the spot it should be, using the poor sketch as best I could but no luck I'm afraid.
2006-12-14 14:20 - TP6333 (Telfit Moor)
Yorkshire. There is a small chip in the top and the plug is missing but I still grade its condition as good. Came up with my daughter in mild but blowy conditions.
2006-12-11 14:20 - TP3133 (Feldom)
Yorkshire. A good trig that feels quite remote because of the difficulty of access. I didn't have my camera with me but there is definitely an S before the number.
2006-12-10 15:25 - TP3252 (Fox Covert)
Yorkshire. A track leads to the general location of this former trig from where the hedge line meets the lane east of the trig location (NE corner of field in which bridleway leaves the lane).
2006-12-10 15:05 - TP0595 (Forcett FBM Aux 1)
Yorkshire. Easy to find, probably thanks to the recent visit by Jimmy.
2006-12-08 12:00 - TP3078 (Eston Beacon)
Yorkshire. I climbed up the steep north side and reached the trig at exactly midday, the same time that saginanivalis makes all his visits! There is still an awful lot of graffiti, but a worthy hill nonetheless.
2006-12-08 11:25 - TP5196 (Nunthorpe Resr)
Yorkshire. I made my way into the grassy field on the left of the track and got right up to the reservoir fence at the nearest point to the trig, it was about 20 yards away.
2006-12-08 10:45 - TP5104 (Newby)
Yorkshire. A bright December morning but wet underfoot after much rain.
2006-12-06 16:10 - TP6890 (White House)
Yorkshire. Easy access from the road. Trig is in the hedge with the flush bracket facing west. Plug missing.
2006-12-05 15:25 - TP6926 (Whorley Resr)
County Durham. Take care when pulling out if parking in water board driveway. Plug missing.
2006-12-05 15:15 - TP6259 (Sunningdale Farm)
County Durham. Why am I visiting a road at a point where a trig was destroyed 28 years ago?
2006-12-05 14:35 - TP4203 (Kilmond Scar)
Yorkshire. I approached from the SE on the path across the fields but Kilmond Scar can be tricky so aim for gate just southwest of trig and then another gate leads into the field where the trig is.
2006-12-01 18:00 - TP7385 (Richmond)
Yorkshire. Yes, this is an active station on the OS database and confirmed on their website. It has every right to be included here and is easy to see, even from the car.
2006-12-01 14:05 - TP3032 (Eggmartin Hill)
Yorkshire. A hill with an interesting name. The view is good from here.
2006-11-29 15:35 - TP0912 (Askwith Moor)
Yorkshire. Not sure why there is so much barbed wire round the gate where the track leaves the road. It is not going to deter triggers. Plastic cap.
2006-11-29 15:25 - TP1997 (Carr Top)
Yorkshire. Use the blue gate as access from the road. Plastic cap.
2006-11-14 11:45 - TP2977 (East Grange)
County Durham. At least trigs still survive close to housing estates. Plug missing
2006-10-04 11:35 - TP5446 (Pill Moor Hill)
Yorkshire. A bit tricky to get close to.
2006-10-01 08:55 - TP6154 (Standing Stones)
Cumberland. Plug missing. Has its own car park (shared with golf course)!
2006-09-23 15:55 - TP0007 (Cleeve Hill)
Gloucestershire County Top. It was a lovely sunny September afternoon with good views. There were quite a few people flying their kites. Plug missing.
2006-09-23 14:30 - TP4098 (Ilmington Down)
Warwickshire County Top/Gloucestershire. A fine location on a sunny September afternoon.
2006-09-17 12:05 - TP1032 (Barley Hill)
Northumberland. You can park nearby very easily. Plug with indented lettering.
2006-08-24 12:10 - TP4623 (Mam Tor)
Derbyshire. Out for a walk with the family in glorious sunshine.

Cumberland. Roadside trig easily visited on my way to Silloth.
2006-05-13 13:30 - TP1289 (Ben Nevis)
United Kingdom, Scotland and Inverness-shire top. An hour after the previous log! I can only agree that the views were spectacular, lucky to have such a clear day.
2006-05-06 14:30 - TP2855 (Drumbeg)

Westmorland. Good open views in all directions. Plug missing.
2006-04-22 10:45 - TP6459 (Thorny Gale)
Westmorland. A special trigpoint because of the historic plaque and well worth the visit.
2006-04-18 13:45 - TP7188 (Penrith (R))
Cumberland. Stopping and inspecting this and even more so photographing it, must intrigue passing motorists!
2006-04-18 13:35 - TP0110 (Stainton)
Cumberland. Pleased to find this without GPS, time of year helps, any later and it would be much more difficult.
2006-04-18 13:20 - TP0593 (Penrith FBM Aux 1)
Cumberland. Iainmac's photos really helped on this one, as I do not have GPS.
2006-04-17 16:35 - TP4634 (Manor House Farm)
Yorkshire. As already noted, there is damage to a top corner and the plug is missing. Not the best viewpoint, A1 is not far away but the hills of the North York Moors can be seen to the east.
2006-04-11 17:10 - TP2762 (Denton Cross Roads)
County Durham. Plug missing from this trig which the hedgerow is claiming.

2006-04-08 10:05 - TP6481 (Tighnacarn)
Ross and Cromarty. As easy to reach as you can get. A break from driving the A9.
2006-04-07 19:40 - TP0481 (Lybster)
Caithness. Managed to find it with just the grid reference.
2006-04-07 19:25 - TP0018 (Sarclet)
Caithness. I don't have GPS so I'm not much good with these and this was no exception. I had a good hunt but did not find it.
2006-04-07 18:15 - TP1359 (Bilbster Mains)
Caithness. I didn't spot it at first and went a field too far, then spotted it on my return.
2006-04-07 17:50 - TP0780 (Achalibster)
Caithness. A quick jog from the lane.
2006-04-07 17:20 - TP4931 (Moss Of Knockglass)
Caithness. It may not be far from the road but the going is horrendous!
2006-04-07 16:50 - TP6099 (Spital Hill)
Caithness. I ascended from the road by the edge of the wood. There is a slight chip out of a top corner of the pillar but I still grade its condition as good.
2006-04-07 16:10 - TP1549 (Bowertower)
Caithness. The gorse bushes have taken over the approach track so it is not as straightforward as it appears on the map.
2006-04-07 15:55 - TP5054 (Myrelandhorn)
Caithness. Close to road but still involves climbing barbed wire fence. White painted (some time ago!).
2006-04-07 15:45 - TP3925 (Hillhead Farm)
Caithness. Tucked away behind the wall beyond the farm buildings.
2006-04-07 15:35 - TP3900 (Hill Of Slickly)

Caithness. Easy enough to find, on bank above the road.
2006-04-07 13:40 - TP2905 (Duncansby Head)
Caithness. An ambition fulfilled in getting here. The views are excellent over the coastline with the Stacks of Duncansby in one direction and the Orkney Islands in the other. The plug is missing.
2006-04-07 12:35 - TP3898 (Hill Of Rigifa)
Caithness. The foundations of this trigpoint are well exposed.
2006-04-07 11:40 - TP0017 (Dunnet Head)

Caithness. Easy to reach roadside trig.

2006-04-07 09:30 - TP0015 (Janetstown)
Caithness. I had a good look but failed to find it. GPS would no doubt have helped.
2006-04-06 16:40 - TP3887 (Hill Of Lybster)
Caithness. Tucked away behind a wall, behind the radio mast.
2006-04-06 16:25 - TP7302 (Thurso)
Caithness. I arrived here to find the visitor centre closed. I wasn't sure what I was looking for at the time but now presume it is inside the building or on the roof.
2006-04-06 15:40 - TP6224 (Strathy Point)
Sutherland. It was a very windy day for my visit. There is a concrete plug.
2006-04-06 14:00 - TP0479 (Bettyhill)
Sutherland. Easy enough to find at this time of year with just the grid reference.
2006-04-06 12:45 - TP2848 (Druim Nan Cliar)
Sutherland. A little bog trotting necessary to reach this trigpoint but good views of Ben Hope and Ben Loyal.
2006-04-06 11:35 - TP0476 (Durness)
Sutherland. Easy enough to find from the grid reference.
2006-04-06 10:15 - TP3111 (Faraid Head)
Sutherland. I walked out through the dunes on a blustery day to reach this headland. The trigpoint is near the army firing-range control building and is painted white all over except for the flush bracket.
2006-04-05 15:05 - TP4272 (Knock Calva)
Sutherland. Ascended from the road to what is potentially a good viewpoint but my visit was in poor weather. The plug is missing.
2006-04-05 14:00 - TP0012 (Nedd)
Sutherland. I had a good look but could not find the elusive bolt. I do not have GPS so hopefully someone who has, will have more luck! Found it on second visit, with Late Starter, on 15 July 2009.
2006-04-05 13:20 - TP2550 (Creag A Bhraighe)
Sutherland. Parked in nearby Drumbeg but still got very wet in the heavy persistent rain.
2006-04-05 10:40 - TP5766 (Rudha Na Breige)

2006-04-04 17:55 - TP4714 (Meall An Fheadain)
Ross and Cromarty. The plug is missing. Fine views of the Summer Isles.
2006-04-04 16:35 - TP2270 (Cnoc An Lochain Deabhaidh)
Ross and Cromarty. A somewhat boggy trek out to this trig point on the headland. There is no flush bracket. The coastal views are a fine reward for the effort.
2006-04-04 10:30 - TP2277 (Cnoc Chaornaidh)
Ross and Cromarty. Ascended this hill from the road after a snow shower. Great views of Suilven, Cul Mor and Ben More Assynt.

2005-11-19 15:15 - TP4391 (Leckhampton Hill)
Gloucestershire. A group of us came up out of the fog to this sunny point. Views of distant Malverns and other hills, poking above the bank of fog below. It was like flying.

Northumberland. Leading a group walking Hadrian's Wall Path and the early morning rain had stopped by the time we reached the trig, giving way to a sunny day.

Anglesey. Good views from this fine small hill.
2002-12-24 14:45 - TP5024 (Mynydd Llwydiarth)

1993-08-26 15:00 - TP4337 (Lands End)

1987-11-22 14:00 - TP5970 (Shutlingsloe)
Cheshire. I have climbed this a few times. On this occasion I was one of the helpers and marshalls on the Roaches Fell Race. This would be the race that Desperate Dan refers to in the previous entry, the actual date being Sun 22 Nov.

1981-05-09 13:00 - TP7318 (Glyder Fach Ferrule)

Staffordshire. Checkpoint eleven on the Octavian Droobers night race.
1981-02-08 00:18 - TP6422 (The Roaches)
