2013-06-10 14:45 - TP10574 (Bamburgh Castle Flagstaff)
From the Farne Islands. Flagstaff is visible today on tower
2013-06-10 13:40 - TP8899 (Farne Island Lighthouse)
On day trip to Farnes. Ran the gauntlet of arctic tern attacks to get from boat to lighthouse. Woolly hat wasn't enough to soften impact.. will take hard hat next time. Zillions of birds including sandwich and common terns as well as the arctics.
2013-06-10 10:45 - TP8900 (Longstone Lighthouse)
On day trip to Farnes
2013-06-08 17:35 - TP2242 (Clougha Pike)
Interesting top to the hill... trig pillar on a 20m diameter cairn, presumably ancient, which has been refashioned into several shelters. Good views. PArt of a 3 trig round from the jubilee Tower
2013-06-08 16:05 - TP0700 (Mallowdale Pike)
Interesting grit outcrops. Good views across to the Yorkshire 3 peaks. Path from Wards Stone passes odd remnant patches of 2 metre thick peat. It would be interesting to know how the plateau lost its peat cover.
2013-06-08 15:55 - TP6740 (Wards Stone)
Climbed from Jubilee Tower via Grit Fell. Fortunately dry weather. A lot of curlews en route. Went on to nearby trig then back via Clougha Pike. Only saw 5 people on the 9 mile round... despite being a sunny summer Saturday.
2013-05-12 16:30 - TP3367 (Glan-Hafon)
Parked at the waterfall and walked up from there....it was whatever the Welsh equivalent of a dreich day is. The wind strengthened once we reached the tops and we got wetter. The view wasn't its best as we were only just under the cloud base, but still impressive.
2013-05-11 17:10 - TP4467 (Llanerch Farm)
Quick sprint from the roadside along the fence line. Great views of the Pontcysyllet aqueduct which we'd walked across a couple of hours earlier.
2013-05-11 16:30 - TP3209 (Foel)
Nice little stroll from the road in between the driving showers! Lovely views of deep grey skies to the south and clear blue to the north.
2013-04-01 15:30 - TP3979 (Holme Knott)
Parked on the minor road around the Hun Bank area then headed south. Lovely views in all directions especially the Howgills and once at the sumit the lakeland fells. Ground ok underfoot, still slightly frozen can imagine its a bit wet if not!
2013-04-01 13:10 - TP2965 (East Baugh Fell)
Went in for a bit of extreame trigging today! Parked on the minor single track road between Hind Keld East and Hind Keld West. Then straight up Shepherds Gill for the first lung busting 400m then took a direct line to the large visible cairn on the plateau top. First attempt to sumit was aborted on the grounds of safety...slope too steep and snow too hard packed to get secure footing. Tranversed to the west and picked up the wall to the right of Garsdale Pike. Ground not so steep and soft snow underfoot for most of the way. Blowing quite abit on the tops with snow drifting. After a 2 hour slog up and a few wiggles a quick 1 hour down. As others have said wonderful views from the tops. From Pen-y-ghent, Wild Boar Fell, the Howgills and Lakeland fells beyond. Great to be out in sunshine and frozen enough under foot for almost dry feet!
2013-03-30 17:05 - TP5441 (Pike Rigg)
Glorious day on the tops. No wind and good views although hazy in the far distance. Got to this one by parking at the county boundary and following the fence line most of the way. Not quite frozen enough underfoot to stop the odd footstep going through all the snow and into the underlying bog. Lots of grouse about but no moorland birds except 3 lone curlews circling above towards the end of the day....scouts probably...reporting back to the large flocks feeding on the lower unfrozen pasture! There is a small stone built building at the trig and currick which someone has white doves in...it's fox proof and has a route out to the open world...odd place for a dovecot! Near to the pillar is a loose boulder with a crudely cut benchmark.
2013-02-23 16:25 - TP5682 (Rigg Of England)
Easy bag from PROW. Ground frozen so easy sprint across to the middle of the field.
2013-02-23 15:35 - TP8423 (Blacko Hill)
After reading Painterman's log we decided not to do anymore than take a photo at distance!
2013-02-23 15:30 - TP6157 (Stang Top Moor)
My the roads around here are narrow! Parked at the T junction about 600m north and walked back. Cloud base down so not such good views. Farmer near-by muck spreading so didn't venture too far off the PROW.
2013-02-23 13:25 - TP5370 (Pendle Hill)
Circular walk starting and finishing at Barley. Up via the Ogden reservoirs and down the staircase path. In hindsight should have done it the other way around as the ice and thin covering of snow made the stair case a bit hairy in places! Great walk, views almost cleared out but still some nice views through the cloud.
2013-01-13 14:50 - TP10662 (Langley Chimney)
And another lead smelting chimney which is an intersected station. Snowing by the time we got to this one. No ducking needed for me to get into the middle and look up the chimney.
2013-01-13 14:10 - TP10659 (Middle Edge Chimney)
In the area so picked up this intersected station. Saw the second Golden Plover of the day on the moors ...poor thing, weather isn't looking too good for them in the next few days. Why come back so early to breed, its not spring yet! Great piece of industrial heritage from an area rich in mining history.
base of Middle Edge Chimney where horizontal flue enters
2013-01-13 11:20 - TP6156 (Staneshaw Rigg)
Been saving this one for the winter and frozen ground. One of the last few trigs left for me within an hours drive of home. Walked up the Pennine way from Garrigill then headed off on a quad bike track next to a line of grouse butts just before a gill. This track soon divides and passes through a fence, use the right hand (metal) gate , don't stay on the main track through the wood gate. Follow the quad bike tracks and grouse feeders along the top and straight to the trig. Lovely day, cold but not a lot of wind, odd flurry of snow and well-frozen under foot so DRY feet....long time since I've had them on a trig point trip. Great views of Cross Fell. Back at Garrigill in time for a pub lunch.
2013-01-05 15:50 - TP5798 (Sand Edge Common)
A re-log of our closest trig-point to home (apart for the Wolsingham FBM). Walked up the Waskerley valley from Wolsingham, across the Tunstall dam and on to the felltop. The trig isn't at the highest point; it's placed on a stone platform in the peat for stability ?the remains of an old building or prehistoric cairn.... but nothing in the historic environment record to confirm this. Beautiful view up Weardale. A rather boggy return home via Thistlewood Lane.
2013-01-01 13:05 - TP5945 (Shill Moor)
Second of the day, the previous being Wether Cairn. Dropped down from Black Butt to cross Sting Burn and to get out of the howling wind, then took an almost direct line to Shill Moor crossing Salter's Road just NW of the fence line and then went diagonally up. Stunning views of the Breamish Valley, Hedgehope and Cheviot, although its summit remained in dark cloud all day...sulking! Dropped down the fence line to Salter's Road and then back to Ewarty Shank and the car. Great day not a speck of precipitation and fantastic views across Northumberland. The summit looks like a large Neolithic/Bronze Age barrow, similar to those on other Northumberland Hills, but with the stones above the lowest layers rearranged to give a cairn, a shelter, and trig foundations... however I can't find anything on the internet to confirm this.
2013-01-01 11:40 - TP6851 (Wether Cairn)
First of two wet and windy trigs in the day but soooo good to be out with blue sky. Parked on the minor road which terminates at Ewarty Shank, about 600m from the end at a cattle grid. Followed the fence lines to stay on access land and then basically up beside Blackbutt Sike. Wet yes as expected but to be honest it was semi-frozen in places and we've been out in worse!
2012-11-11 15:40 - TP6206 (Stokoe High Crags)
A rarely visited trig, only previously visited on 4 occasions and none for over 4 years, but well worth it. Walked up on the forest track from 769840 and then a rather wet firebreak to the moor edge. Crag looks like there's been old quarrying activity, some of the structures look ancient... will check records to see if anything known. Good Northumberland views across the forests & moors.
2012-11-11 14:30 - TP2952 (Ealingham Rigg)
Parked nearby, then a short walk across drab damp moorland. Sat in car, eating packed lunch and watching a kestrel hunting
2012-11-11 14:00 - TP6763 (Watch Crags)
Parked at Bannock Crag, just room for one car, road is good to that point. Short walk up to pillar. Moderate views, Cheviot & Cross Fell might have been visible north & south if the visibility had been better.
2012-10-07 12:51 - TP10512 (Bowscale Fell)
Buried Block at NY 33341.688 30544.313. NY45/005 on the OS database. The grid reference suggests the block is on the northern edge of the summit stone-wall shelter. We couldn't find it despite some poking around. Oddly there's bedrock nearby which would be a better site for bolt/rivet than a buried block. Great views across to Blencathra & Skiddaw on a bright clear day.
2012-09-29 17:15 - TP5600 (Reaveley Hill)
Abit of a wet slog across from Heddon Hill. Took the bridle way on the way there and then stuck off acorss the fells, on the way back went north from the trig to the corner of the access land and then followed quad bike tracks to the bridle way. Not such good views from here although still a lovely spot with not alot of habitation around!
2012-09-29 16:10 - TP3710 (Heddon Hill)
Another lovely little chap on a hill covered in archaeology. Parked on the road to Calder farm and picked this one up in pair with Reaveley Hill. Wet in places as you would imagine after the week the NE has had. Great views again from Heddon Hill, across to Hedgehope and Cheviot.
2012-09-29 14:20 - TP5217 (Old Fawdon Hill)
Walked into this one from Fawdon, followed the PROW to access land then up to the trig. Stunning views from this chap, north to Cheviot and south to Simonside. Lots of archaeology visible with hill forts and settlements and field systems. Well worth the visit even on a very blusterly day. Nice to see quite a few foke walking in the area.
2012-09-29 12:30 - TP8950 (Gibside Monument)
Been here a few times in the past, took this today from the opposite side of the valley via the disused Derwent Valley railway line which is now a popular walking and cycling track. Major Red Kite release site so as usual when passing this way spotted the large raptor in the sky above.
2012-09-22 17:30 - TP0595 (Forcett FBM Aux 1)
Spent the day at Aske horse trials near Richmond and picked this up on the way home. Easy bag thanks to the other logs, had a walk along the near-by iron age fortifications...impressive.
2012-09-16 16:50 - TP8374 (Eston Tip)
Why I ask myself the sequel!...GPS puts this bolt in a block on the back edge of an ironstone quarry in the middle of a group of gorse bushes...no prodding...just a photo! Not a particuarly pleasant area...used by dog walkers who dont clean up and 'people' who leave their cans and bottles behind...ho hum.
2012-09-16 16:25 - TP8375 (South Lackenby)
Why I ask myself!...Ok its supposed to be a bolt in a block...GPS puts it high up on the verge of the east bound A174 about 200m from the roundabout. Prodded around with screwdrivers and dug up a couple of stones but no block...may be it went when the road was built!
2012-09-16 14:25 - TP5982 (Simon Howe)
The best of the weekend by a long shot. Walked in from the North on the bridle way that crosses Moss Dike. Wet at the beginning but after that a good track and well marked by cairns. Trig has not only barrows but its own standing stones in alignment. Views across to Fylingdales and the occassional train heard on the North York Moors railway.
2012-09-16 13:20 - TP7931 (Louven Howe Aux 2)
Parked at the turn off and had an ice cream from the van! Easy walk down the road and across the heather for 30m or so...2 big chunks out of it now...shoddy workmanship! Unsure but guess this has something to do with RAF Fylingdales.
2012-09-16 12:45 - TP1697 (Brow Top)
At last...normal service is resumed...trig and a barrow. Found the geo-cache as well by mistake. Good views down to Robin Hood's Bay and down the coast. Breezy but not raining...yet.
2012-09-16 12:30 - TP10283 (Winster Hose)
Well...a good start to the day...not only has yesterday's sunshine gone but like all others who have tried before we failed to find an illusive 'disc'. Decided to log this as possibly missing as its called Winster Hose, which was presumably the name of the factory on this site until a major supemarket chain was installed. So my guess is the disc went when the factory did.....unless it's just above the wines and spirits aisle on the roof of Sainsburys!
2012-09-15 16:30 - TP5440 (Pike Hill)
Parked on the minor road and walked in on the PROW from the west. Another trig with accompanying barrows.
2012-09-15 14:45 - TP6017 (Sleights Moor)
Becomes a bit of a theme in the North Yorkshire Moors...Trig with a barrow or near a barrow or on top of a barrow! This little guy has 2, one on the way and one it hides behind (which has a ring of kerb stones). Odd but the trig isn't at the highest point it being the first barrow...only by a meter though.
2012-09-15 14:15 - TP4089 (Hutton Mulgrave Moor)
Easy find on the edge of the wood. Handy parking and straight up the forestry track.
2012-09-15 14:00 - TP1072 (Barton Rigg)
Took photo from the roadside as the field had a large number of cows and we didnt want to cause fright as there is no PROW across the field. Gorgeous sunny day, spent the morning at Port Mulgrave collecting about 30kg of fossil ammonites from the beach during the low tide.
2012-09-14 16:00 - TP8952 (Captain Cooks Monument)
Picked this up on the way to Whitby for the weekend. Blustery day, removed the cobwebs of the working week! Good views over Teesside and across to Rosebury Topping.
2012-09-09 16:10 - TP8086 (Brownsey Moor)
Our GPS gave the location as being in a sea of heather and not at the actual summit. Poked around with long screw drivers but no solid rock to put a bolt in. Headed up towards the actual summit and found (by chance) a geocache at 96876 99469 on the GPS.. still no sold rock. Have checked on OS website and the grid reference given is the same as theres. They state "Ht to bolt in rock. Mark buried"...so if it is there its going to be under quite a depth of heather and peat!...guess its the pick and shovel job again.
2012-08-26 19:20 - TP10013 (Barnard Castle Church Tower Flagstaff)
Drive-by on the way home...sunshine again now and a lovely evening.
2012-08-26 17:30 - TP8085 (Blackstone)
Again this one could be a not found more than a possibly missing. Parked at the point where the moor road splits into two and went almost due west to the ridge top. Abit of a circuitous route to avoid peat hags and wet grains. GPS puts the bolt about a meter south from the large cairn/pillar at the northern end of the common. Again bedrock is hard to find...we dug around but only found loose rock...so its a pick and shovel job again...or may be a dismantle the pillar which would be a shame as its far more impressive than a OS bolt....in my humble opinion! Fantastic views into Swaledale and an interesting drive down the high 'road' to Satron. Its got many gates which my partner in crime and passenger was not impressed by.
2012-08-26 16:05 - TP8087 (Redmire)
Not sure if this should be possibly missing or not found...any way as you can see from the photos the GPS puts the bolt under a track constructed on the side of a quarry...the only 'bedrock' around is the side of the Redmire scar and being limestones its seriously crumbly and defo not safe. My guess is the the bolt is on bedrock under the road...so if anyone wants a challenge its may be a pick job!...Access was from the RoW at the quarry entrance and then about 400m of trespass along the track past the kick ass 'no public access' signs! Guessing from the map there is less chance of being seen with your pick if you approach from the NW....good luck! View across Wensleydale is lovely, though
2012-08-26 15:10 - TP6871 (Whit Fell)
Second one that's been hanging around in my pysche for a non-firing day. Happy to say normal British bank holiday had been resumed and it was now throwing it down! Parked next to the entrance to the rifle range and walked in on the MOD road.... then onto quad tracks to the trig itself...guess the view would have been good...if the cloud had lifted.
2012-08-26 12:25 - TP3133 (Feldom)
Took advantage of a non-firing day in the ranges south of us today...had a mixed trig and archaeology day as the Feldom area is 'famous' for its cup and ring marked stones and general bronze age landscape archaeology. Spent a good 2 hours in the area normally out of bounds and visited not only the trig but a fair number of archaeological sites. Gets an 8 for the added interest!...oh and sunshine at this point in the day.
2012-08-18 17:20 - TP6988 (Windy Gyle)
Third of the day in the best of the weather. Great up and down ridge walk on the pennine way from Lamb Hill. Thank you to the mills of Lancashire as their slabbed floors make a decent dry 'ish' path all the way. Windy Gyle lived up to its name across the saddle. Great trig at top another huge carin with fabulous 360 degree views. Descended via bridle way to Rowhope then west across Hindside Knowe to pick up the road at Carlcroft. Great day!
2012-08-18 15:50 - TP4326 (Lamb Hill)
Second of the day and the weather improving. Decent wind to keep the midges away! Parked in 'lay-by' near to Blind Burn and followed the bridle way north to the pennine way and the trig. Wet underfoot, a few folk on the pennine way but all in the distance. Great views into Scotland, south to Cross Fell and East to Simonside and the Cheviot massif. Went on to Windy Gyle in what turned out to be a 16km round.
2012-08-18 13:15 - TP6441 (Thirl Moor)
Took advantage of a non-firing weekend on the Otterburn ranges. Parked on the saddle at the highest point on the miliary road. Wet walk across to the trig and its impressive adjoining bronze age cairns. Vast expansive views, although low cloud and rain limited the distance until later in the day. Met a guy on our way back to the car who was collecting Deweys...'it's all about lists' he said as we swapped OCD stories! Went on to have a good look around the Chew Green Roman fort and the adjoining deserted medieval village.
2012-07-30 16:30 - TP8009 (Greenwich Observatory)
Walked up here to get the panoramic view of the Olympic eventing...and to log the observatory. 'couldn't find it' not really true as I didnt really look...the observatory was open but almost surrounded by port-a-loos...nice!!! I peered throught the railings and eyeballed the meridian line etc...then back to the eventing via the facilities!
2012-07-30 10:45 - TP8841 (Canary Wharf Tower Apex)
It and its neighbours dominate the sky line when look from Greenwich park. Don't think the horses at the eventing noticed it at all! Clear day with impressive view back towards London.
2012-07-30 09:30 - TP9061 (Big Ben Pinnacle)
Saw this from the train on the way to Greenwich park for the cross country of the 3 day eventing. Was here 40 years ago as well on a school trip!
2012-07-28 21:50 - TP8857 (National Westminster Tower Anemometer Pole)
Tower top all lit up for the Olympics. Easy to spot from the near-by areas. Walked down past the Bank of England and thought of the gold bars beneath bmy feet!
2012-07-28 21:30 - TP9341 (St Pauls Cathedral Cross)
Special visit to log the intersected station. Not sure how I got here from Westminster Cathedral but my partner in crime seemed to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the underground from working in London 35 odd years ago...me I've not been here since a school trip 40 years ago. Walked over the Millenium bridge (no wobble) to get photos of the National Westminster Tower Anemometer pole...shame about losing the camera!
2012-07-28 20:30 - TP9435 (Westminster Cathedral Cupola)
Got this one after the visit to Kew Gardens and tea at a near-by Indian. Moved onto the city centre, very quiet considering the Olympics are in town. The photo was great...honest...
2012-07-28 16:00 - TP9060 (Kew Pagoda Pinnacle)
In London for the Olympics so took the opportunity to be an 'intersected station tourist'. Lovely warm afternoon and a really nice setting, even the low flying planes were of interest. You will have to take my word for it as no photo as we managed to leave the camera on a tube on Sunday!....ho hum...lets hope lost property do their stuff.
2012-07-21 18:15 - TP4894 (Monkside)
On to this one from Grey's Pike. Basically picked up the forest fence and then straight to the trig from the end point. Forest up to the sheep fold has been cleared so its easier walking to climb the fence and walk on the felled area, other wise its the knee high heather, bog and moss scenario...with some well hidden ditches to trap the unsuspecting trigger. Trig as other have said next to a large cairn, and some wonderful block paving which was obviously military in the past. Some sign saying beware of non-ironising radiation...whatever that is...from the trig we took a direct line to bring us down between little black and black cleugh, from there it was a trudge on the south side of the burn to the foot bridge then up to the forest drive and back to the car...knackering!
2012-07-21 16:50 - TP3513 (Greys Pike)
Like others have said not so easy to get to is this one. Parked at Hall Knowe picnic spot where we met 2 Belgians who were lost. They were supposed to be doing the Pennine way towards Bellingham but were at least 15-20 km off piste! They only had the map with the sections of the pennine way on so we spent some time convincing them they were not actually on any of their map...advised them to go to visitor centre at kielder and ask about bus!...Anyway the trek to the trig was via none existant fire breaks in the forest...alot of the area has been felled and replanted and the fire breaks on the map don't seem to exist anymore. Not so bad if you are short of leg as I am, but a bit more trouble some for my partner in crime who is a 6 footer. Once out on the summit it was an easy trudge to the trig....foolishy decided to go for Monkside.
2012-07-21 14:10 - TP1340 (Berrymoor Edge)
First of 3 in the day...a gentle warm-up for the next 2. Parked at Blackhope Nick viewpoint and accessed along the fence edge then across the moor. Not as wet underfoot as we'd imagined. Bog Asphodel, Common Spotted Orchid and Northern Marsh Orchid in flower. Tried to take the direct route back to the car...silly!!! Knee high heather, bog and wet wet moss...stick to the fence!
2012-06-09 19:00 - TP9735 (Burnhope TV Mast)
NZ29/INT077. Top of mast not visible due to the British summer.
2012-06-09 18:45 - TP8454 (Obelisk)
Jumped over the back fence of the school grounds from Obelisk Lane into the woods which hide the obelisk. Dark and rainy so not a great photo.
2012-06-09 18:15 - TP6613 (Tunstall Hills)
Good view across Sunderland to the sea. Can drive almost to it, then clamber up rocky summit.
2012-06-09 17:46 - TP7789 (Westlea)
Gets a high mark because of the impressive spread of large flower spikes of marsh orchids between the mast and the A19. The fenomark itself is BORING
2012-06-09 17:15 - TP3793 (High Moorsley)
wet day though walked up in a dry gap. Next to a strange white sphere, with a sign saying it's a weather radar. Growing crops so didnt didnt cross last part of field..photo from edge
2012-06-04 16:50 - TP9734 (Keswick Church Spire)
NY11INT003. Intersected station visited after coming down from Skiddaw. Bench Mark and rivet at the West door. Lovely warm evening in Keswick.
2012-06-04 12:30 - TP6001 (Skiddaw)
came up from Millbeck, bagging some Wainwrights en route. Bright cool day with superb visibility. Summit crowded.
2012-05-13 16:10 - TP4486 (Llanymynech Golf Links)
Visiting LLanymynech quarries to hunt for orchids and took a slight detour to the trig. Bright day but a stiff breeze to keep it on the cool side. No golfers at all, might have had something to do with the big football day going on! Orchid hunt successful for 1 variety (early purple) but pyramidal and heath spotted not out yet.
2012-05-12 17:11 - TP3257 (Foxholme)
Distance shot from edge of field. Didn't do the barbed wire around the gate!
2012-05-12 16:26 - TP9393 (Bishops Castle Town Hall Cupola)
Passing this way after collecting conventional trig points! Town Hall in need of renovation according to lots of flyers asking for donations around the village.
2012-05-12 15:55 - TP3707 (Heath Mynd)
Second cardio-vascular workout of the day. Short sharp ascent from minor raod where it meets access land. Looks like this is the Southern tip of the Stiperstones ridge. Curlews circling the summit which has a large cairn.
2012-05-12 14:51 - TP2416 (Corndon Beacon)
First cardiac workout of the day. Parked as others at the reservoir went up the track to access land and stright up...well I may have stopped a couple of times to 'admire' the view! Said views were good today as the air was clear and at last some sunshine. 4 paragliders on the ajoining hill of Lan Fawr. Great little hill well worth the effort.
2012-05-05 18:51 - TP3949 (Hips Heugh)
Walked in from PROW and then across the field to the Trig. Good but limited views although situated on an intersting outcrop of Whinsill. Ended up going into Craster and having evening in the only resturant. Specialises in seafood and was yummy.
2012-05-05 16:58 - TP2340 (Cold Law)
Third of the day and for me the best. Great views over to the coast and westward to Hedgehope and back towards The Cheviot. Grey cloud of the day disappearing and replaced by blue sky and warm sun. Wet underfoot from Cheviot but bearable especially with the thought of dry socks and shoes waiting in the car.
2012-05-05 14:52 - TP2152 (Cheviot)
Second of the day from Hedgehope Hill on the way to Cold Law. A long way via some spectacular peat hags! Not as wet underfoot as we'd imagined but we were thankful for the paved section across the summit. No views to speak of from the top and the trig as other have said is in a sad state.
2012-05-05 12:54 - TP3711 (Hedgehope Hill)
Up from the parking spaces at the end of the road to Langlee Ford. Start of a 6 hour round via Cheviot and Cold Law. A good day for walking, not alot of wind, occasional bright sunshine interspersed with snow and hail showers! It's a bit of a cardiac workout from the saddle to the top of Hedgehope hill... no chest pain so must be doing something right! OK underfoot till we dropped down from the summit to Comb fell which was wet but not as bad as it could have been. Odd patches of snow left and the ground frozen in places. Occassional glimpses of Cross Fell to the south and the Northern lakeland fells to the SW.
2012-04-08 16:20 - TP0814 (Alkington Grange)
Yet another Shropshire trig-in-a-hedge. Top with spider flush with the top of the hedge. A mile further along the road, the bascule bridge over the Shropshire Union Canal was raised to let a couple of barges pass.
2012-04-08 16:00 - TP5277 (Paddolgreen)
Another Shropshire trig-in-a-hedge. quick nip up the field from the road.
2012-04-08 15:25 - TP2318 (Cockshutt)
Parked on side road north of Cockshut... through a field of large frisky calves, didnt find the path round the back of the farm, so along a field margin to the track up the hill. Field has been sown so took photo from a few metres away on the path. Large hare lolloped away from us along track. Returned through the farm as no signs to indicate where the footpath should be.
2012-04-08 13:00 - TP0182 (Noneley)
Found easily thanks to Mick & Kim leaving open... didn't need measuring tapes or GPS to locate. Lot of dog-poo so beware. Currently in line with the black cow and the brown cow, but they may have moved before next visit.
2012-04-07 16:15 - TP4854 (Moel Bentyrch)
Parked just beyond the farm, took the diagonal path up the east side, quite loose, but no bracken yet. Two peregrine falcons (?) kept an eye on us from the crags. Along the nearside of the ridge fence to keep in access land then hopped over for final ascent.
2012-04-07 15:20 - TP6184 (Stingwern Hill)
Same route as wrose. Unseasonable patch of snow by pillar. On private land, but not very overlooked.
2012-04-07 14:45 - TP0530 (Newtown)
Easily found on eastern roadside verge, 23m south (approx) of the crossroads sign on the western verge. Manhole covers aren't much use as there's a series of them along the verge.
2012-04-07 14:20 - TP2091 (Cefn-Mawr)
Found a parking spot on dead-end road to east of trig, then up the footpath to the ridge and along to the pillar.
2012-04-01 16:15 - TP5731 (Roppa)
parked at end of road nearby and walked the few hundred metres to it. Grand views over the moors to the north.
2012-04-01 15:40 - TP0159 (Pockley Moor)
Uncovered as only just been visited. A bit under a metre from the right hand post of the explanation board, diagonally in front and to the right
2012-04-01 14:40 - TP5769 (Rudland)
PArked on road to SW where access land begins, then up along wall before headed up to trig. Was rather wet despite dry weather, so on way back kept well to north of wall. Lot of curlews and lapwings. Summit scarred by mining
2012-04-01 13:25 - TP5670 (Riccal)
nice walk up through woods from village: lots of primroses, aconites, wood anemones etc. once on top, along the field boundary where the footpath zigzags, over a fence, across the field and through a gate to get to the flush bracket side. Area seething with trippers.
2012-04-01 12:05 - TP6093 (Spaunton)
Parked at Rosedale Bank Top by the huge kilns... then 2km due west over fairly flat heather moorland via the group of barrows. Not very inspiring views.
2012-04-01 10:30 - TP4386 (Leaf Howe)
parked at end of public road at Muffles Bridge (only space for one). Saw roe deer just after leaving car. Lovely walk up through woods, though would be clarty in wet weather. Turned L on reaching the crossroads on the top, 300m along the forest road, then diagonally back to the right for 100m along an ill-defined forest ride, then left for 50m through the forest to get to the trig. Found it easily without GPS but later in the year would be wise to bring GPS and the full co-cordinates.
2012-03-31 16:50 - TP3644 (Harrow)
Parked same place as others, quick jog up pasture to trig. Unfortunately Man City scored 2 goals against Sunderland in the 5 mins I was out of the car, levelling the match. Bummer.
2012-03-31 16:20 - TP5605 (Red Dyke)
Drove in from south via cul-de-sac and forest road. A locked gate stops you just before you reach the junction by the trig.
2012-03-31 15:40 - TP2392 (Coomb Hill)
Drove to within 50m.... too easy, not getting much exercise with today's trigs. More walking planned for tomorrow to work off excellent hotel food (Blacksmith's in Rosedale)
2012-03-31 14:40 - TP4345 (Langdale)
Drove up from south on forest track, then steep climb up through plantation. Good views. Trigged been used rubbing post by farm stock. Roe deer by track as we drove away
2012-03-31 13:45 - TP0130 (Ravenscar)
Still got wreath on top
2012-03-31 13:30 - TP2243 (Cloughton)
Crop growing so photographed from roadside. Looks in good ccondition though with rocks leaning against it
2012-03-31 13:10 - TP6242 (Suffield)
trig in a wood, hence limited views. whitewash fading
2012-03-31 12:05 - TP7827 (Olivers Mount Monument)
pleasant spot, would be a lovely location on a warmer, calmer day. Good cup of tea in the nearby cafe.
2012-03-31 11:50 - TP7294 (Scarborough)
parked in estate, new road wasn't on our OS map.... as already pointed out, the best plan would be to park in the P+R on the new road, go though the wicket gate on the E side of the car park, and walk a few metres S on the footpath
2012-03-31 11:30 - TP0359 (Redcliffe Farm)
On E verge of busy road. Paced out from the centre of manhole (2m) and east edge of road drain (2.7m), then dug it up with a cheap biro. Had forgotten tape-measure and digging equipment, so were lucky to find the block easily.
2012-03-31 11:00 - TP2043 (Casty Hill)
beside caravan A11A. Freezing & windy in a dismal clifftop caravan park. No longer a bird table, got bits of wood on the trig.
2012-03-30 18:00 - TP6004 (Skiplam)
walked up from south...beautiful views northwards once you reach it
2012-03-30 17:30 - TP5481 (Pockley)
Easy access up a field boundary, had to lean over trig to photograph FB which is on N face. Warm evening
2012-03-17 18:10 - TP3171 (Fingay Hill)
Parked at same place as previous logs and walked in on the farm road. Up through a gap in the hedge and found in field boundary hedging. A decent verge to walk up and keep off the crop.
2012-03-17 17:15 - TP1027 (Barf Hill)
Up the bridle path and a quick off piste trot to the trig. Cracks around the top and a corner loose, a few winters of frost and thaw and I guess it will be gone. 'Lovely' views of Dalton turkey farm!...Yorkshires answer to Bernard Matthews!
2012-03-17 16:55 - TP4086 (Hutton)
Did this one from the side of the field as crop well established and tractor lines running in the wrong direction.
2012-03-17 16:30 - TP1093 (Beacon Banks)
Definitely the best of the day. Nice stroll along the bridle way with good views over to the white horse and down the the power stations south of York. Fields pull of Alpacas, makes a change from sheep!
2012-03-17 16:10 - TP2343 (Coldharbour Lane)
Reached the dizzy heights of 40m above sea level here! Doesn't look good for around here when the ice caps melt. As other have said, it's a drive by.
2012-03-17 15:39 - TP3425 (Grafton)
Handy parking spot at the bottom of the PROW. Up through the woods and easily found. Was lucky to survive the extensive quarrying in the area. Guess the views would be good, but not today as the weather had closed in and it was raining.
2012-03-17 15:25 - TP3049 (Elm Field)
Parked on minor road off the A59 and walked up the side of the field behind the houses.
2012-03-17 15:10 - TP5499 (Poppleton)
Did this one from the field side as the farmer had just sown a crop tight to the edge. Didn't want to cause any hassle as it is on private land.
2012-03-17 14:50 - TP0158 (Skelton)
Not the best of the day! Constant traffic on the A19 makes this not a quality experience. There is a lay by about 200m south of the manhole cover. The cover itself is on the east side of the A19, gets a 2 cause it wasn't raining.
2012-03-17 14:30 - TP6557 (Towthorpe)
Took advantage of being in the York area to purchase a new car and did a day of trigging in the lowlands! As the previous visitor, waited for gap in the traffic and hopped over the fence.
2012-03-11 17:05 - TP6892 (White House Hill)
Parked on road to white house folly at end of plantation, then walked back along bridle path then up through the plantation near its southern end to keep out of sight. Trig a short dash across farmland from top of the plantation.
2012-03-11 16:30 - TP2689 (Curleheugh)
Drove up road from Eglingham.. it's a public road as far as the access land. So only a short walk across the moor to the trig. Hill pockmarked with old bell-pit mines... presumably for coal. Views extensive (as usual in Northumberland!)
2012-03-11 14:50 - TP3651 (Hart Law)
Walked up from Alnham tower, parked by the church. Lumps and bumps of the deserted medieval village in the fields opposite. Signs of ancient settlement on the grassy ridge leading to the trig... boundary banks and old enclosures on the side of the hill. Fantastic views on a very clear day across to Cheviot
2012-03-11 13:00 - TP6321 (Target Plantation)
Walked up from Rothbury, visited standing stone on the way..... good view north to long crag and south to Simonside. Lot of people out walking on a sunny warm day. Surprised a roe deer in the scrub on the way down.
2012-03-11 11:40 - TP5954 (Shirlah Pike)
Amazingly not visited for nearly 6 years! Parked at highest point on B6341 and walked 1.5k straight over to trig across heather. Two metres from pillar is a boundary stone with "R" on the west face, "F" on the east, and a bench mark on the top.
2012-02-19 13:10 - TP7818 (Tees Head)
Found easily to the right side of the first pillar walking from Cross Fell to Dun Fell. Removed the layers of stones & snow covering it for the photo. Glorious sunny day. Beware: broken glass bottle above trig. Great snowy views.
2012-02-19 13:00 - TP0695 (Cross Fell)
Walked up from Kirkland. A revisit, on the way to find the nearby concrete ring trig. Glorious sunny winter day, another half-dozen groups of people on the summit plateau. A thin cover of snow. Views across the snow-dusted Lakeland fells.
2012-02-11 18:05 - TP2147 (Chester Hill)
Decided to swing by this one and see if it was doable in the dark as just a bit trespassy. Keep out private signs on the gate no one around so quick in and out. Didnt dare use flash as dog barking in the distance and car coming down the near-by road!
2012-02-11 17:40 - TP0094 (Little Houghton)
Dark now so torch needed! Didnt take too long, abit of soil to move on the back edge of the drain cover. Ok so this is it...my 400th unique trig point...a rivet
2012-02-11 17:00 - TP4769 (Menceles)
Easy find on a nice wide track running alongside the field boundary. Still looking in good nick with its coat of white paint. Views to the East of Bewick hills which will be visited when we're back in this area as they have a couple of great hill forts and cup and ring marked stones. Great to be trigging at 5pm and its still light!
2012-02-11 16:30 - TP6497 (Titlington Pike)
Quick steep pull up from the roadside. Great views well worth the effort.
2012-02-11 15:00 - TP4518 (Long Crag)
Parked at Callaly, took PROW to access land and then free style to track on the western edge of the woods (forestery commission red track). Followed this track on a very eroded path to the ridge top. One other person seen but well in the distance. As others have said, lovely place with stunning views of Cheviot and Simonside and at last as promised by BBC some watery winter sunshine and pale blue sky.
2012-02-11 13:20 - TP4339 (Lane End)
Parked on verge by PROW SW of the trig. Quick hop across the field boundary for photo. Trig not so stable as the ground around it has been ploughed/eroded away...guess in the end it might end up 'toppled'.
2012-02-11 12:40 - TP3261 (Freemanshill Moor)
Parked at the beginning of the access road to the radio station. Nice 3k round to start the day. Frightened 4 Roe Deer as we crossed from the access land. Views not so good yet, still slightly misty. I think this was my 400th unique trig point...some discussion about double logs and not reachable but seen...but I'm claiming this as it....until futher notice!....nope according to him who knows its not this one...its Little Houghton rivet!...a rivet...bummer.
2012-01-28 17:05 - TP5940 (Sheriffs Park)
Quick drive by on the way home. Easy to find and handy gateway to park in.
2012-01-28 15:25 - TP7367 (Great Yarlside)
What a gem...deceptively long way from the layby on the A6 but well worth it. We basically followed the fence line and cut a couple of corners off (ish). The views today were stunning, all the way down to the power station at Heysham, the Howgills, Cross Fell and the SE lake land fells. The snow was much deeper here than Seat Robert and the trig was a little difficult to find!. Had noted GPS position on map from previous logs and it wasn't there! So we did the old fashioned pacing with the help of mickandshanes information. Anyway it was very enjoyable 'digging' in the snow and as a bonus we saw 3 Red deer. The logged grid reference is correct.
2012-01-28 12:00 - TP7368 (Seat Robert)
Parked at Wet Sleddale reservoir and took the bridle way around the reservoir then the PROW up through Sleddale Hall, from there we just followed the wall. Stunning day, nice covering of snow on this little hill and vast views across to the Pennines, down to the Howgills and across the eastern lakeland fells. Thick inversion fog in the Eden valley making for lovely views.
2012-01-22 16:05 - TP1504 (Blotting Raise)
Parked on the road north of Croglin and walked in on the track via Plantation Nook, then on the grouse shooting track up the Access Land to the trig. A bit under 2 hrs for the round trip. No-one else out and about, but fresh walking-boot prints going up the track (though not down) so someone else has been this way recently... looked a bit fresh to be Ted's prints, but who knows... We walk in the steps of the Greats.
2012-01-14 14:30 - TP4166 (Kentmere Pike)
Last trig and Wainwright of the day. Came via Harter fell which has stunning views of just about all the main peaks of the lake district from Conniston Old Man to Blencathra. Not forgetting Inglebrough in the Yorkshire dales. Easy walk from Harter Fell to the top of Kentmere where the now obligatory lake district Raven was on the scavange for walkers cast offs! Back to Hawswater via Gatesgarth pass perfctly timed to reach the car at 4.20pm.
2012-01-14 13:10 - TP7307 (Selside Brow)
Came to this one via Selside (Wainwright), easy to locate not far in a SW direction from the large Nine Standards type cairns. Great underfoot as frozen and clear air making for fabulous views across to High Street and Helvellyn. Could not bail out as frozen solid!
2012-01-14 11:40 - TP7578 (Swindale Common)
First of 5 peak mixed trig/Wainwright day. Approached from Hawswater via the corpse path. Have to admit to searching around wrong cairn and not having faith in GPS...silly! Easy to find once you locate the right peak and cairn. Vast views towards Shap and the pennine escarpment on a beautiful clear day.
2012-01-07 15:15 - TP1464 (Blackwool Law)
Parked at Rochester planning to use the footbridge over the river there and then footpath to Woolaw. However footbridge no longer there so the footpath goes from nowhere to nowhere now. Instead used the farm track over the river just W of Woolaw (weren't challenged but not a PROW), then straight up the access land to the trig. Passed what is marked on the map as "settlement" and looks like a remarkably preserved prehistoric settlement. There are 4 roundhouses, the largest 7m diameter, with the bases of the walls and the doorways intact. The houses are surrounded by a substantial wall, with an attached stock enclosure and field boundary banks. Will research to see what's known about it. Trig itself has the usual huge Northumberland views. Later edit: here's full details of the Woolaw settlement, confirms it dates to Iron Age (200BC) http://www.northumberlandnationalpark.org.uk/understanding/historyarchaeology/historicvillageatlas/rochesterintroduction/rochesterhistory/rochesterromanosettlements
2012-01-07 13:35 - TP3603 (Harbottle)
On what looks like a robbed out tumulus, with another nearby tumulus and stone enclosure... will check whats known archaeologically. Walked up along PROW from army road to south (non-firing day). Best view of the day... across to SImonside, Rothbury, Coquet valley, Cheviots.
2012-01-07 12:05 - TP2409 (Corby Pike)
Parked on the army road 2km east of the trig, then walked in via the footpath, forest track, and permissive footpath to forest edge. Then last 500m across wet moorland. A non-firing day, of course. Rather remote & bleak, but impressively empty views across the Otterburn ranges.
2012-01-07 11:15 - TP5680 (Ridlees Cairn)
Drove in from SE via army roads from Potts Durtrees and Toft House... public vehicle access allowed on non-firing days without any barriers to cross. Good views and interesting rocks around it. Trig on a tumulus, near army bunkers.
2012-01-07 10:45 - TP1588 (Branshaw)
Parked at army road junction 800m south of trig having driven in from Potts Durtrees to the south on a non-firing day. You can drive on this road, and the Barracker Rigg Rd NW-SE from this junction. However road up to trig doesnt have public vehicle access so walked up from junction. Rather a low trig, so views not as good as for the trigs further in range to the notheast, which we drove over to via the army roads.
2012-01-01 13:30 - TP1803 (Burton Fell)
Bagged on an MOD open day. Walked in from Hilton and took the bridle way up Swindale and then set off across the open moor. Bleak day (windy and low cloud) although the rain stayed away. No views at the top, cloud base too low, trig found with aid of GPS. Saw 7 grouse, 3 Gold finches 1 dog and 1 person...bliss...oh and 7 used pieces of ordnance.
2011-12-26 12:35 - TP5259 (Overley Hill)
Given a six for novelty value.
2011-12-26 12:15 - TP7750 (Shrewsbury)
On a Sewage Farm, invisible down a curving drive beyond gate with 3 rows of razor wire. Mind you, on a working day it may well be possible to get to it. Did try getting a peek from a local housing estate, but no joy.
2011-12-11 15:20 - TP3303 (Gapshields)
Parked on side road, crossed A69 (major danger of becoming road-kill) and walked up from Gapshield Farm. Pennine Way almost non-existent and the moor very wet today. Last trig of the day so gave up on any attempt to keep dry.
2011-12-11 14:45 - TP2351 (Collering Hill)
Parked at lay-by on road to north of plantation, about 100m before the gentle bend in road. Walked up between lines of trees... hardly any bending needed (obviously getting easier as the trees grow). Found trig only a couple of rows of trees away when we reached the top of the hill. Overall much easier than expected and none of the nightmare climbing over areas of wind-blown trees we've encountered in other plantations.
2011-12-11 13:30 - TP6109 (Spy Rigg)
Very wet walk up from farm., pastures saturated and extensive areas of bog around pillar, but fascinating sandstone carrs by trig with possibly ancient sheepfold built into it base of the scar... I will check the Historic Environment Record to see if anything known. Deeply incised 1802 grafitto on boulder nearby (?quarrymen).
2011-12-11 12:25 - TP0112 (Green Sike)
Last, and only, visit was nearly 5 years ago and it looks damaged on comparing the photos. Vulnerable to being driven over. Drizzly, gloomy, December day.
2011-11-13 09:50 - TP7428 (Ambleside)
Passed it on way to do Fairfield Horseshoe (+ Stone Arthur) ... lots of Wainwrights to bag (9) but no trigs on the circuit (assuming there's not a ring-trig hidden under a cairn, Cross Fell style). Darkenss falling by the time we came back through Ambleside.
2011-11-12 12:19 - TP3803 (High Raise)
Bagged on 6 hour outing from New Dungeon Ghyll via Jacks rake, including 6 other Wainwrights. Very lucky with the day and the weather, high summits in cloud all day with the 700's drifting in and out of cloud. Cleared enough as the day went on for stunning views of Langdale.
2011-11-06 11:50 - TP6185 (Stiperstones)
Walked from the bog car park along the ridge and down via Stiperstone. Lovely day clear views to the west and hazy to the east. Lots of walkers out on a mild November morning.
2011-10-22 16:55 - TP7081 (Wreighill Pike)
Took the PROW from the SE on the lower side of the trig. Quick sprint off the ROW to the summit. Last of the day and Sunderland won to boot!!!!
2011-10-22 15:40 - TP6349 (The Beacon)
Parked at beginning of track opposite Ovenstone plantation. Took the PROW off the bridleway although marked well after the wood underfoot it hardly exists till it flaterns out a little. We took the direct route to the top through the wood and windfall...not the brightest decision!...although managed to stumble out right on top of the trig. Wood as others have said is now felled and the trig is out in the clear on top of a large tumulus. We came back via the western edge of the wood, appears the PROW has been diverted to follow the edge and its MUCH easier than going up through the trees! Views lovely again.
2011-10-22 13:00 - TP6547 (Tosson Hill)
Parked at Great Tosson and walked in on the PROW. Had a mouch around Burgh Hill with its obvious fort then up through the forest to the base of Simonside. Called at Simonside summit then across the heather moorland to Tosson hill. Views across the Coquet valley and over to the Cheviots, alittle hazy today but still lovely.
2011-10-09 16:50 - TP0697 (Botton Head)
At last a path through the heather moorland...I love the Cleveland way...longest walk of the day but by far the most pleasant, shame the views still not so good, raining across Middlesbrough and into the Vale of York. Bet this would be beautiful on a clear day.
2011-10-09 15:00 - TP3964 (Hograh Moor)
Ok, sorry but this is the worst of the day...walked in on the bridle path then once opposite trig set off across the heather of varying depths, from ankle to thigh....yuk...hard going...took the shortest route back to the road which was slightly better.
2011-10-09 13:55 - TP4539 (Loose Howe)
Easy bag and handy parking spot...another very wet trog across heather moorland...sad little chap this one...abit of the Friday afternoon job from the OS...why didnt they put it on one of the near-by outcrops of bedrock????...cannot read flush bracket now, for those inclined it's a hand into the cold cold water and feel!
2011-10-09 12:45 - TP5988 (Siss Cross)
Rather a faceless trog across wet heather moorland...though not the worst of the day! Views limited today due to low cloud off to the west.
2011-10-01 16:05 - TP6768 (Water Crag)
walked in from north along the good track beside William Gill, then up 4-wheel drive track to grouse butts before the last 800m across pathless moorland.
2011-10-01 13:00 - TP3468 (Great Shunner Fell)
Used Pennine way from Thwaite(1h15 up, 1h down). After a wet North Pennine slog last weekend the paved path was welcome. Good views from the summit: Dun Fell dome visible, but too hazy to see Cross Fell.
2011-09-24 15:20 - TP2876 (Dufton)
Walked up track from Dufton. Dense cloud reduced visibility to 10m so went too far on track before heading off piste to the trig....hence had to switch on the GPS to get us through the peat soup and find the trig on the edge of the escarpment. Quicker & drier descent through the barium mine debris to reach the track lower down (keeping far enough to the right to avoid the Melmerby Scar limestone cliffs). Score could have been higher if there was a view.
2011-09-10 18:20 - TP0123 (North Blyth)
Does it get much better than this? Surface block still uncovered ...I fell into the hole it is in! Easy to find with help of other logs and pacing distance from kerbside. Masses of oyster-catchers on the pier side, depressed area that has never really recovered from the loss of the coal mining in the area.
2011-09-10 17:20 - TP1097 (Beacon Hill)
Approached via PROW from the east...note this has been diverted and now leaves the road on the southern edge of Beacon Hill wood. Trig visible from PROW by standing on gate!
2011-09-10 16:30 - TP6460 (Thorny Hill)
Parked in the same place as others, walked to trig on PROW, didn't cross into field off ROW as in full view of farm.
2011-09-10 14:45 - TP2730 (Darden Pike)
Parked at the same place as Clochandighter took the more easterly PROW to trig. Deceptively long trudge through heather moorland and mud...rewarded by good summit with sandstone crags...limited views as the clouds were gathering and the wind was getting up. Completed the round by returning on the western path which is 100% better underfoot, would recommend that route over the other. Abandoned thoughts of Tosson Hill via Simonside as the heavens opened when we were about 200m from the car...phew.
2011-09-10 12:30 - TP4637 (Manside Cross)
looked awful on the map but surprisingly easy to find. Parked at 959 926 next to surfaced forest road, from there picked up PROW up through what used to be the fire break, but it has recently been felled apart from the last 500m or so. Then picked up track not on the map but took us right to the trig. Unseasonably warm and muggy and very very wet under foot, that was the deciding factor on return route which was all forest track, although longer it was quicker and much drier!
2011-09-04 17:50 - TP1648 (Broad Lea)
Walked up the bridle way...not too wet today when I read the previous logs...however didn't cross into field from ROW as farmer near-by and cows in the field...stood on fence post, took photo, fell off fence post...grazes still visible!
2011-09-04 16:50 - TP4131 (Jerusalem)
Walked into this one on the bridle way, which is now part of the route for upgraded pipeline ???sewage. Quick detour off the ROW into a field head high with wild oats and reed filled boggy patches. View across to the Pennine escarpment.
2011-09-04 16:20 - TP4695 (Maulds Meaburn Moor)
Short detour from PROW. Sheep still in the field and still staring...couple of massive Shap granite erratics in the field. Stunning views of the Pennine escarpment and almost directly up High Cup Nick.
2011-09-04 14:15 - TP5129 (Nine Standards Rigg)
Lovely late summer day warm and hardly a breath of wind. Lots of people following the C2C route, a bit boggy in places, but didnt put off a lady in a dress and flat court shoes! 360 degree views, Scafell, Pen-y-Ghent, Cross Fell all very clear. Old benchmark by trig with small hole which possibly used to contain a rivet.
2011-08-29 13:55 - TP4812 (Middleton)
Parked in the Clochandighter memorial parking space and walked up via the Peregrinus pioneered route using Cowbound Lane (less a lane, more a linear swamp). Not sure if it is a public right of way, but if it isnt then the patch of access land next to it would have no way to access apart from via helicopter! Lovely views from top despite being lower than much of the Howgills. Descended to Langdale Beck to shorten the route back but, like Ted, landed up with wet feet as there isnt a fording place. Should have gone back via the ascent route using the little bridge over the beck at the bottom end of access land.
2011-08-29 11:55 - TP4154 (Kelleth Rigg)
walked up track through field past frisky herd of cattle drawing attention to us. Rather trespassy and exposed. Nice limekilns.
2011-08-28 19:10 - TP2728 (Danby Moor)
Lovely trig set in a prehistoric landscape. Parked at the junction next to Slate Hill House and walked up the path onto the top. Straight on to the trig and standing stone with bench mark. Great views north and east across the great name of Fryup dale.
2011-08-28 18:45 - TP3365 (Glaisdale Rigg)
Drive-by...photos out the car window!...not that I'm getting lazy.
2011-08-28 18:25 - TP0004 (Danby Beacon)
Grand trig in a grand spot. Next to big beacon and almost a drive by. Wonderful 360 degree views, today especially good off to the south and Glaisdale Moor and Great Fryup Dale. Heather in full bloom and in contrast to the vivid green of the agricultural lowland. Well worth a visit.
2011-08-28 18:00 - TP0596 (Mickleby FBM Aux 1)
Found with helps of Teds pics as couldnt find on OS database. Farmer was leading straw in and was more than happy for us to aerate the verge with screwdrivers! Took 30 mins of systematic prodding, head scratching and photo looking. Its not that far down but you get side tracked by constantly hitting the stone flags under the surface that run parallel to the fence. For those who may wish to follow, its 10.15M from the 30mph sign, 2.75M from the fence and 3.10M from the road. GPS no good, accuracy 2M, nothing wrong with the patent screwdriver technique.
2011-08-28 17:10 - TP5123 (Newton Mulgrave Moor)
Forgot the camera, so phone pics! Parked next to HUGE Winnebago by the cattle grid on the B1266. Short walk on track...few spots of rain, a bit of a dull one.
2011-08-28 16:15 - TP2961 (Easington)
Handy pull in next to large mast. Visible from road, PROW to trig and quick hop over fence to get photos. Breezy spot today and clouds beginning to roll in.
2011-08-28 15:50 - TP3812 (High Waupley Farm)
Walked into farm on PROW. Cows and a bull (big!) in the trig field so went around to the west side and took pictures from the nearest point. Farmer very busy leading straw in from the nearby fields.
2011-08-28 15:15 - TP4557 (Low House Farm)
This trig has been adopted as a memorial to the miners who lost their lives in the Cleveland ironstone mines. Now has new coat of paint, gravel garden, white marker stones and large stone cairn. Shame the access to it was through the farm at the end road which has a distinctly ify aroma!
2011-08-28 14:20 - TP0802 (Airy Hill)
Came down from Guisborough moor and straight across the road to the Cleveland Way again. Steep ascent but via some good steps. Trig not visible from the Cleveland Way, its up a field boundary on a Tumulus. Luckily the farmer was ploughing in the next field and was more than happy to give us permission to get to the trig.
2011-08-28 13:00 - TP3534 (Guisborough Moor)
The first of a 10 trig day. Parked just before Charltons on the A171 and picked up the Cleveland Way through the woods and then the PROW onto the access land. Trig in good condition still being used as a 'no bikes' sign! Heather moorland in full bloom, stunning, and views out across Teeside. Deceptively good walk and trig, worth a visit.
2011-08-21 19:57 - TP3769 (High Audland)
Parked next to farm and walked in on bridle way. Wet and muddy in places...not the most inspiring area although good views of Howgills.
2011-08-21 18:43 - TP4090 (Hutton Roof Crag)
Parked at Hutton Roof village and walked in on PROW. Obvious track through tumbled wall and straight up to the trig. Interesting area with lots of degrading limestone pavement, lovely views to Yorkshire dales, Morecambe bay and Howgills, low cloud this evening, but still a good one!
2011-08-20 12:14 - TP7091 (Y Golfa)
Parked at disused quarry on A458 and went straight up the PROW. Trig on the edge of the golf course, views across to the Brieddens, low cloud making it not so good in the distance.
2011-08-20 10:58 - TP7107 (Yr Allt)
As others parked at the Montgomery canal off the A458. Walked up the minor road and onto the PROW. Views across the Severn valley and across to mountains towards the west, although low cloud and showers making views not so good today.
2011-08-19 16:07 - TP6761 (Warton Crag)
Parked at the disused quarry at the nature reserve. Paths to the top accessable from the right handside of the quarry. Trig in a sea of scrub just past the beacon...abit of a disappointment after the climb. Views away from the trig across Morecambe bay. Chunk missing out the top so status slightly damaged
2011-08-19 15:08 - TP0889 (Arnside Knott)
Parked just before NT carpark and headed straight up. Lovely views over to the Kent viaduct.
2011-08-19 14:40 - TP7373 (Cockshot Lane, Storth)
Drive-by bolt and benchmark. No views as wooded area. Couldnt see the proposed second benchmark.
2011-08-19 14:13 - TP3752 (Heversham Head)
Parked on the minor road longside the wood. Walked up the side of field to the Trig and then back on a path that runs alongside the field boundary in the wood, a little less obvious...being circumspect due to mega GOML (not trig related) incident the previous weekend! Trig in good contition with views over Milnthorpe sands.
2011-08-19 13:26 - TP4837 (Millrigg Moor)
Easy bag off junction 37 of the M6. Parked at the quarry and walked in on the PROW. Quarry in full swing with beds of Shap granite visible. Lovely 360 degree views of Skiddaw, Haysham, Pen-y-gent and Howgills...abit of a gem! Trig had a chunk out of one of the top corners, so status now slightly damaged
2011-08-13 19:00 - TP3712 (Hedley Hill)
Final one of the day, easy acess from field gate, handy parking although be careful when you pull out.
2011-08-13 18:50 - TP0514 (Longhorsley)
I'm not sure this is an FBM, looks much more like your bog standard suface block...may be its a 'nightshift' FBM, abit like the Morris Marina my dad owned...it was supposed to be a car! Note its the second set of village greens when you turn in, not the ones with the fences around and the beacon in...next ones up with the painted white stones around...now there's posh.
2011-08-13 18:05 - TP3708 (Hebron Hill)
Trig in a hedge, very well buried in a hedge. Set off from layby on A1 via marked PROW. Field full of very frisky cows with one HUGE bull with fashionable piercing in his nose. A hare zig-zagged across the field in front of us, scared by the cows and us so couldnt make up its mind which way to go. We decided due to level of upset in field (the first we walked through) to walk back to A1 via farm access track.
2011-08-13 17:35 - TP0120 (Tranwell Pumphouse)
not much to say about this one...tiny rivet on the roof of the pumphouse.
2011-08-13 16:20 - TP1442 (Blackdown)
I'm with Stan Toon...tramp across heather moor, any attempt to go direct to trig across lower land leads to wet wet feet. Good views once you get there, however long crag with its cairns is superior.
2011-08-13 15:10 - TP1089 (Bavington Crags)
This is almost a drive by. Near to Great Bevington where clear remains of a deserted medieval village (or DMV in archaeologist speak)can be seen at the east end. Expansive views over the west to cross fell and the sea at east. May have inflated the score for this one as England had just took the last wicket and were crowned world number ones!!!! How long will that last?...I don't care I've suffered the ups and downs of being an England fan all my life, going to savour this, even if it is fleating.
2011-08-13 14:20 - TP5908 (Shaftoe Crags)
Little gem of a hill and trig. Parked in nearby layby on A696 on walked in on PROW. Remains of the ditch for the hillfort easily seen on way to trig and lovely rock (Ripers Chair) sculptured by nature and human hand on the south crag. Trig had the fresh remains a some furry creature on the top, must be used by local bird(s) of prey as dining table!
2011-08-13 12:50 - TP4916 (Moot Law)
Parked at the end of the road and walked in on the farm track. Expansive views of surrounding countryside, lots of sheep and cows making this hard to sneak up on!
2011-08-13 11:40 - TP0457 (Callerton Grange)
Easier to find than anticipated. Still not covered over from previous visit 14 months ago. Not the best location in the world!
2011-08-13 11:20 - TP6835 (Westerhope)
Tried to get to see via cycle path behind the garden but undergrowth too thick and more too the point my legs too short...so asked at No. 15, new occupants only been in 3 weeks and told of the possibility of visits by previous owner, very nice lady and happy to show me through the house and into the garden. Trig in very good condition, has all its metal work.
2011-08-09 20:05 - TP0154 (Skell Gill)
On the way home now, slight detour before hitting the A1. Easy bag thanks to the info from other logs. Beautiful evening with views across the Vale of York to the white horse.
2011-08-09 16:45 - TP3758 (Heyshaw Moor)
Circular walk from Dacre Banks on Nidderdale Way. Weather holding up although sky brooding at times. Noble trig and I see from the logs someone really does love this one. Note there is a bench mark on the surface of the same rock the trig is on.
2011-08-09 13:40 - TP1634 (Brimham Rocks)
Heaving with people, masses of families enjoying the sun. Expansive views all the way to Drax power station and York Minster. Moved on from this spot...not that I dont like kids!
2011-08-09 11:00 - TP0156 (Marton Le Moor)
Another on the way into Ripon, trig in a hedge, well in a hedge!
2011-08-09 10:30 - TP3688 (Haypark)
Picked this up on the way into Ripon for a day out with friend. Not got my usual trigging partner with me feeling like I'm not supposed to be here! Nice trig in the middle of arable farm land, tractors ploughing and rolling in the surrounding hills.
2011-08-07 13:30 - TP7164 (Mickleby)
This lucky householder has a FBM in the garden...bet that adds value to the property. Quick drive by as time getting tight. Didn't attempt the near-by Bernsten after reading last logs but will return to have a go when time not an issue...got the Easington one to pick up as well after the blond senior moment!
2011-08-07 13:20 - TP0129 (Potato Hill)
This is an easy one, quick jump over a field gate while the driver turns around. New whitewash so somebody loves this one....grey sea again, beginning to get depressing!
2011-08-07 13:05 - TP3944 (Hinderwell Beacon)
Had a blond senior moment and drove straight past Easington trig to this one! Trig in a field of corn although it's little spot is covered with gorse so easy to find. Just off the public footpath but nice tractor lines to follow to avoid crop damage. Views out to sea...shame it was so grey...matching the sky.
2011-08-07 12:35 - TP7481 (Loftus)
Easy to spot, on the right if you are travelling east just before the farm with the big grain drying tower. No views to speak of.
2011-08-07 12:05 - TP6756 (Warsett Hill)
Took the option of parking at the golf club and walking in on the marked track. Extensives views north and south, breezey spot today with plenty of cows to keep the trig company...ship count now up to 11...and plenty of people walking the coast via the Cleveland Way.
2011-08-07 11:40 - TP0458 (Saltburn 2)
Suprisingly easy to find...its at the westend of the last crash barrier on the left handside if you are travelling uphill! Look for the National Trust sign, its almost directly underneath it. Views of Saltburn and its beaches.
2011-08-07 11:00 - TP3067 (Errington Wood)
Only rain of the day at this one...parked at Errington Woods and walked along the permissive bridle way then peeled off uphill at convenient point. Trig buried in brambles, views better towards the coast.
2011-08-07 09:45 - TP3078 (Eston Beacon)
Interesting little hill, steep ish ascent from the B1380 with handy parking at the footpath. Remains of iron stone mining apparent in the hillside in the form of a ventilation tunnel. Extensive views of Teeside from the top with 8 ships anchored off shore. Impressive ditch and bank from iron age fort and bronze age buriel mounds dotted around the area.
2011-07-30 15:30 - TP3724 (Helvellyn)
up Striding Edge and circled via Raise and Sticks Pass back to Glenridding. Perfect weather and great views. Fewer people on the summit than on Snowdon, but didnt hang around. More Wainwrights than trigs today.
2011-07-09 18:05 - TP5534 (Prospect Hill)
last one of the day...no access due to corn crop sown right up to boundary edge. Been sunny warm day and only rained while in the car...and a bonus....England won the cricket on the way home.
2011-07-09 17:45 - TP0153 (Hunton)
Success with the help of GPS...its not that deep considering its not been dug up for 3 years ish. Cannot really help with clues from the surroundings as the hedge is a hedge, only describle feature is that the opposite hedge has holly in it and its on the right side verge as you stand with your back to the village. On the plus side the dog muck is no longer a problem.
2011-07-09 17:20 - TP6456 (Thornton Grange)
Decided not to be trespassy today so took this one from the road where its clearly visible from.
2011-07-09 17:00 - TP5788 (Sail Hill)
Someone loves this one, shinny white gloss paint...no whitewash here! Rural location on the boarder between the arable land and start of the dales. Our guess as to the use of the odd buidling is something to do with communications, looks like a microwave communication tower and yep we've seen the one in Northumberland as well...sad or what!
2011-07-09 15:55 - TP2360 (Colsterdale Moor)
Parked towards the end of the single track deadend road to the south. Pleasant walk across the heather via access land. Nice views right across to Teeside and down the vale of York. Not a drop of rain fell on us although it looked like a monsoon over the Yorkshire Moors.
2011-07-09 14:00 - TP6436 (Thiefgate)
Easy access from the lane, not alot to say about this one, trig in a field.
2011-07-09 13:10 - TP6371 (The Cranks)
Trig well buried in the hedge impossible to get to flush bracket. Approached via bridle way, very over grown with lots of nettles...not a shorts trig, by legs are still stinging now!
2011-06-19 16:25 - TP0125 (Marsden Bay)
Now decorated with lovely blue paint...cannot miss really! Not really a quality experience, although I suppose to birds on Marsden rock add something!???
2011-06-19 15:55 - TP4194 (Killingworth)
Paid homage to this trig in roadside verge with its own little path and walled enclosure....as others have said though, it's a bit grubby and there are no views.
2011-06-19 15:25 - TP1614 (Brenkley Hill)
Outskirts of Newcastle, trig in a hedge, but on a public footpath, opencast neaer-by. Parked at Milkhope centre and saw a red squirrel hop across the path in front of us...highlight of the day, hence inflated score!
2011-06-19 14:50 - TP4798 (Middle Brunton West Farm)
Again...trig in a hedge...lots of development around but still there...no views unless you like urban sprawl and planes coming into Newcastle airport.
2011-06-19 14:40 - TP1722 (Brunton Bridge Farm)
Bit of a theme today "trig in a hedge". Easy to find, parked in near-by housing estate.
2011-06-11 15:20 - TP0092 (Alwinton)
ok..I gave up and got out the car, wet boots back on wet fleece back on...took measurements from OS site, relatively easy to find with the patent screwdriver prodding technique. Block is opposite the large fence post with the pin in the top, as you face the fence its slighty to the right of the fence post 1.7 meters away....did this one without GPS as it went tits up due to being so damn wet...i know how it feels!
2011-06-11 15:00 - TP1790 (Burradon Mains)
another drive by due to no dry clothes and flat refusal to put wet boots back on!...well I did get out the car only about 10m from the road, a sad little chap tucked in a corner next to a farm muck heap.
2011-06-11 14:45 - TP3810 (High Trewhitt)
Now soaked and refusing to get out the car to trog through anymore woods and deep grass. Drive by trigs the order of the day and this one certainly fits the bill.
2011-06-11 12:45 - TP5937 (Shepherdskirk Hill)
Interesting little wander to find this one amoung a dense woodland. As others have found situated next to big cairn but now almost buried by windfall. Guessed GPS as forgot to bring coordinates with us, and to be honest it was luck we stumbled across it after pushing our way through thick undergrowth and lots of windfall. There isnt a track to talk of but its better to head for the bothy marked on the map as a bungalow, then it basically is heading for the highest point you can see from there up a rather good sandstone crag. Oh still raining and now soaked through 90% of clothing!
2011-06-11 11:50 - TP0093 (Detchant)
Rain very persistant...easy bag thanks to previous logs. A1 doesnt make this a quality experience.
2011-06-11 11:45 - TP7150 (Belford (R))
Still raining..hard...as you can see FBM is still in its playpen although almost overgrown.
2011-06-11 11:30 - TP1245 (Belford Crag)
Today is a soggy tail so sorry to all trigs scored today, but Northumberland is not suffering from a drought and it surely showed it today! Set off to this one via Sykes family route, but pasture had a lot of very frisky cows with calfs so jumped (scrabbled) over the wall and went up via the wood then reclimbed back into pasture out of sight of still frisky cows. Interesting trig with accompanying WWII relic near-by.
2011-06-03 14:25 - TP3179 (Firth Fell)
Carried on from Middlesmoor pasture. Pleasant ridge walk on a beautifully sunny day. Good views of the not so recognisable rear end of Pen-y-ghent.
2011-06-03 11:50 - TP4811 (Middlesmoor Pasture)
Walked up from Kettlewell. In an area heavily scarred by surface mining. Goods views over Wharfdale and Littondale.
2011-06-02 19:15 - TP5099 (New Pasture Edge)
Short walk from parking for Leadmines. Views mor like north pennines than limestone country!
2011-06-02 18:30 - TP0599 (Skipton FBM Aux 1)
Easy to find, currently uncovered near path edge.
2011-06-02 18:15 - TP7207 (Skipton (R))
EAsy to find with help of pervious logs. Best parking is in a lay-by just before the corner when approaching from Skipton side.
2011-06-02 18:00 - TP0148 (Inghey Bridge)
Interesting little trio. Rivet on the top of the bridge, bench mark and flush braket on the upstream side, accessable through gate.
2011-06-02 13:15 - TP5320 (Parsons Pulpit)
Bagged on 15.3K round from Kilnsey, got sick of climbing over walls on access land, no gates or stiles here!. Base remains with bolt in the centre and there's a bench mark and rivet nearby. Views across limestone country towards Littondale (north) and Malham (west).
2011-06-02 11:30 - TP4208 (Kilnsey Moor)
Approached from Kilnsey via Mastiles lane. Weather 100% better than yesterday! Pleasant limestone scenery, moved onto Parsons Pulpit.
2011-06-01 16:20 - TP0788 (Addlebrough)
Poor weather still but well worth the climb. Ascended for SW via birdleway then access land. As others have said, only the base remains althought the base itself is on a Tumulus surrounded by large stones with cup marks, plus 2 benchmarks.
2011-06-01 15:05 - TP6382 (The Fleak)
Not a quality experience! One for sad triggers only. Miserable trudge over peat hags and gullys from the east. Weather to match (no drought this far north). Shoot me if I ever suggest a revist!
2011-06-01 13:10 - TP6859 (Whaw Moor)
Approached from Arkengarthdale past the mines on Whaw Edge. Lots of birdlife, Curlew, lapwings, oyster catchers, goolden plover and woodcock. Minimal views due to low cloud and blowing a gales hence low score.
2011-05-21 17:50 - TP3978 (Holme House Farm)
Original footpaths now blocked by unclimbable fence and diversion notices posted. But trig still clearly visible from new footpath which runs from housing estate by A19 southwards along prison boundary. Trig looks in good condition and building not yet started. Only access to the land is from the south via closed gates with unoccupied security cabin.
2011-05-21 17:00 - TP5615 (Red Lion Farm)
walked up path from road junction, past stables, not muddy today. OK view south to NY Moors
2011-05-21 16:35 - TP0128 (Hartlepool)
tiny and not obvious on the speckled concrete. good beach with kids on despite the wind
2011-05-21 15:30 - TP3647 (Hart)
walked up field edge from main road after parking on turn-off to Hart. pleasant view, 11 ships parked off the Tees estuary.
2011-05-07 18:05 - TP6890 (White House)
Trig-in-a-hedge...nice hedge, field got good old oilseed rape in.
2011-05-07 17:35 - TP6182 (Stiltons)
As others not able to get to this one due to crop in the field. Stood on tiptoe and took photo from edge!
2011-05-07 17:10 - TP6513 (Tom Smiths)
Easy to find, in the centre ish of the field. Did jog there and back to avoid eyes. Damaged around the flush bracket level, probably been hit by some farm machinery.
2011-05-07 16:15 - TP3584 (Hambleton Down)
Parked at Sutton Bank info centre, early purple orchids blooming between road and carpark. Trig on slightly trespassy area although easily accessable from Cleveland Way. 4 hares on the gallops!. Trig on a barrow....not the wheeled kind!
2011-05-07 15:05 - TP1408 (Black Hambleton)
Drove up to Cleveland Way from Kepwick, where there is a Victoria post box for those with other obsessions...walked south to trig, stone built and being used by local game keepers as grouse feeding station. Of interest are the bronze age barrows in the area one still with ditch visible next to trig. In answer to Father Ted there is usually a single burial in the middle of a round barrow, but there may be later burials into the side of it. There are also what are thought to be bronze age dykes in the area which were used to mark boundaries. Hence this gets a 7.
2011-05-07 14:30 - TP4689 (Masty Bank)
Trig in a sea of oilseed rape to head height, if you are my height...see photo...so didnt do flush bracket and condition.
2011-05-07 14:20 - TP7174 (Northallerton)
Raining so did a few lowland before heading back to moors. Easy to find thanks to previous logs, just paced it out with my exact meter strides...not
2011-05-07 13:20 - TP2794 (Dodd End)
Walked in again on the Cleveland Way from the North. Doubled backed from high spot on the path to the stone built trig. Raining but not heavy...yet!
2011-05-07 12:15 - TP0886 (Arncliffe Wood)
Walked down the Cleveland Way from the North. Hazy day so views not brilliant, but the rain held off!
2011-04-30 13:30 - TP0176 (Garth Goch)
Rock doing good impression of one of the many grassy hummocks in the area. Found it with GPS and peeled back the moss enveloping it, to reveal the bolt. Currently uncovered but likely to be submerged again soon, so take your GPS!
2011-04-29 18:54 - TP5380 (Pen-Lan-Oleu)
Walked in from south, footpaths non-existent and blocked by barbed-wire fences. Exited by track to end of road, which isnt a footpath but at least not blocked by fences.
2011-04-29 17:44 - TP5353 (Pen Craig)
Walked in from east. Easy acces viq right-of-way. view impeded by haze.
2011-04-29 13:30 - TP0521 (Machynlleth)
almost a drive-by trig, in its own little compound.
2011-04-28 13:53 - TP6043 (Snowdon Summit)
Awash with people, stopped long enough for photo and coffee, then set off for second half of horseshoe
2011-04-28 13:30 - TP3319 (Garnedd Ugain)
Beautiful day to do Crib Goch ridge, though wont be going back again! Stunning views when I dared to look. Bagged on 7h15m Snowdon Horseshoe, took 3h05m to reach trig from Pen-y-pass (possibly not the fastest recorded time!.
2011-04-27 13:00 - TP1839 (Cader Idris)
Stunning weather. 3h30m round trip via Pony path. Too many people, otherwise woud have been worth a 10.
2011-04-26 18:00 - TP7226 (Trawsfynydd)
up farm track and immediately left through a gate and it is at the far end of the field by the roadside wall, in its own little world.
2011-04-26 17:55 - TP0603 (Trawsfynydd FBM Aux 1)
Dug it out, was under turf. Left it uncovered. Easy to find using previous excellent photos, OS sketch, and a long screwdriver as probe. Just over a metre towards road from second fence post (the first being just to right of gate).
2011-04-26 17:00 - TP3629 (Harlech)
Views out to sea and, if you stand on the wall, you can see the castle even if you're short. Odd they didn't put the trig on the nearby much higher hill.
2011-04-26 14:50 - TP3217 (Foel Ispri)
Took the mickandshane route. Panoramic views down estuary and across to Cader Idris. Interesting old mines by the summit with deep workings you can see down, and an adit a bit lower. Lots of quartz on the heaps and a small amount of lead ore (galena) but no gold unfortunately.
2011-04-26 12:55 - TP5372 (Pengarn)
used Rhayafer wanderers route up from the white road some way after it changes from yellow and passes through the forest. A fascinating landscape of old field systems, settlements and standing stones en route. Fine views over Barmouth over to Lleyn.
2011-04-23 18:15 - TP4054 (Humphrey Head)
parked in car-park, walked south on shoreline and scrambled up near end of peninsular (tricky), descended by the steep path back to the carpark. Early purple orchids blooming in the grassland around trig (our first orchids of the year)
2011-04-23 17:17 - TP1901 (Cannon Winder)
walked down coastal path but didn't get to trig as high fence and unwelcoming signs. High risk of GOML encounter so just took pics over the fence. Lot of birdlife, waders, on the sands & marshes
2011-04-23 16:20 - TP4041 (How Barrow)
Parked at T-junction before How Barrow farm, pleasant walk up through farm onto hill. Surprisingly good views to Old Man and across Greenodd sands
2011-04-23 15:35 - TP1356 (Bigland Tarn)
Took the mickandshane route. A bit trespassy. Lovely bluebell woods by the footpath
2011-04-23 14:35 - TP7523 (Saskills)
approached up hill from south-west on footpath through caravan site. By a cairn, nice views over reservoirs, with Old Man in the mist. Noise from the busy road below the hill very audible.
2011-04-23 13:30 - TP0137 (Sampool Bridge)
south side of dual carriageway on kerb of access road. Not a quality experience.
2011-04-17 12:12 - TP4987 (Murton Pike)
Bagged on a 11k round from Murton via the pike and into Scordale. Scordale well worth a visit, in some ways more stunning than High Cup Nick as the incised valley is deeper. Also managed to find some good pieces of amber flourite. Fabulous day.
2011-04-16 17:40 - TP5081 (Nettle Hill)
Walked up from Crosby Garrett thorugh relics of limestone pavement and bizarre fragments of golf course. Agree the trig is a chubby little chap blending in well with crumbling wall surround. Nice views, but they were better from up on the Howgills earlier in the afternoon.
2011-04-16 16:05 - TP3475 (Green Bell)
Parked at top of Adamthwaite road south from Ravenstonedale village. Circular walk via Grere Fell, Green Bell & Knoutberry. Surprisingly spectacular view from the trig to Lakes, Cross Fell, Pen-y-Ghent, Wild Boar Fell etc. Deceptively spacious in estate-agent speak.
2011-03-27 17:00 - TP7379 (Knipe Moor)
End of a lovely day and a nice bonus, ring trig on the top of a limestone scar (Knipescar). Waterworn and weathered limestone pavement to the NE of the trig. All round views up to Blencathra, over to High Steet and eastwards to the pennine escarpment, Cross Fell, Little Dunn Fell etc.
2011-03-27 13:25 - TP0693 (High Street)
Bagged on a 5 hour walk including 6 Wainwrights. Walked up from carpark at the head of Haweswater, lovely day ideal walking conditions, short sleeves all day even on the tops. A bit of a dull sumit so only a 6, far better views further on towards High Raise and at Kidsty Pike.
2011-03-27 10:40 - TP0111 (Hardendale Fell)
Kind of easy to find, well the rock was but the rivet is well camoflagued with lichen!
2011-03-20 15:10 - TP3661 (Harwood Side)
Parked on roadside verge near Sinderhope Lodge and walked up via bridleway and access land. A bit boggy in places. Another North Pennine trig on a flat-topped summit in a sea of heather. On our descent met by man from Sinderhope Lodge who objected to us parking anywhere along the public road along the valley (though conceding that we did have the right to walk along the road/bridleway) Its not as though we had parked outside his house. He obviously has delusions that the public road is his private drive.
2011-03-13 17:00 - TP2305 (Coatyards)
Last of 7 trig in the day and possibly the best, although my score may have been influenced by listening to England beat Scotland on the car radio! Approached by the public footpath to the south west and climbed the fence to access the trig in the middle of the field. Wonderful unexpected views of the Simonside range and the Cheviots.
2011-03-13 16:15 - TP3312 (Garleigh Moor)
Collected this one after visiting the near-by hill fort and cup and ring marked stones. Lovely views in a big landscape, Cheviot in the distance looking regal with its new dusting of snow. Cup and ring marked rocks well worth a visit some of the best examples there are.
2011-03-13 14:15 - TP3498 (Greenleighton)
As others parked at the quarry and walked along the public footpath. Lovely limestone quarry face with beds of sandstone above. Views across to the north sea coast and over to cross fell on the pennine escarpment.
2011-03-13 13:25 - TP6904 (Whitehill)
Another trig in a resevoir compound, this time no 10 foot high fence just a quick hop over a couple of strands of barbed wire.
2011-03-13 12:40 - TP6852 (Wether Hill)
Not the most inspiring but a nice walk across grey mare from the A696. Very slight damage around the top, guess after a few more winters it will change to slightly damaged. Vast views of the Northumberland countryside.
2011-03-13 12:00 - TP1484 (Blakemans Law)
Easy bag from the unclassified road, trig kept company by some small concrete trig like object and the army red flag. Frightened a deer on the way to the trig. As others have said beautiful all round views but not the best of the day!
2011-03-13 11:25 - TP3247 (Fourlaws Hill)
Return visit with full GPS reference. Found easier than expected, I would suggest anyone bagging this one either brings GPS or has a good hour to spare as it is buried under fallen trees.
2011-03-06 15:40 - TP6774 (Watsons Pike)
Pleasant half hour walk from the east across grouse moor: sun & no wind. Lots of red grouse and pair of golden plovers near the trig. Did think about carrying on to Harwood Side trig but will leave that for another day.
2011-02-20 16:40 - TP5837 (Scarness)
Odd to have a trig sited so low beside high mountains.
2011-02-20 16:05 - TP1056 (Barren Fell)
walked up road to mast. Good view south over Caldbeck fells dusted with snow.
2011-02-20 15:45 - TP0104 (Greenrigg Farm)
had a quick look when passing, but couldnt see any evidence of it.. no loose turf. Didnt have the OS sketch (which doesnt make it an easy find anyway). Will need serious digging equipment and better means of location to give a fair chance of finding it
2011-02-20 13:20 - TP3801 (High Pike)
bagged when on a 3 hour circular walk from the north, going on from High Pike along the ridge to Carrock Fell. Dusting of snow, quite draughty, and the tops in cloud.. but good views through the gaps. Surprising number of people out walking, considering the weather.
2011-02-20 12:00 - TP3753 (Hewer Hill Quarry)
easy walk from road via footpath round the quarry
2011-02-12 18:05 - TP5518 (Powson Knott)
walked up track from south as night fell. Fortunately had a torch and located trig after wandering round limestone pavements for a bit. Probably not the cleverest thing to do after spraining a knee on the 15km Outhgill/High Seat/Sails walk during the afternoon.
2011-02-12 15:00 - TP7493 (Sails)
bagged as part of 15km circular walk from Outhgill to High Seat, along the ridge to Sails and then back to Outhgill via Hell Gill Bridge, taking 4h40m. Worst bit was the saddle between Little Fell and Sails...a wet maze of peat hags. Descent off Sails was fine with beautiful view across to the Wild Boar Fell ridge. Ring trig easily found beside its marker cairn and near to a post. NB SD 8080096600 isnt the trigs position... thats just the name of the trig. See logs for actual position
2011-02-12 13:20 - TP7507 (High Seat)
Walked up from Outhgill, not recommended for those with heart disease as a relentless climb. BBC weather forecast lied, so instead of sunshine had cloud and, later, sleet. Ring trig found easily next to the marker cairn. Bailed it out. Water freezing so didnt bother at the next ring trig (Sails). NB trig postion isnt NY8020001300, thats just the name of the trig... see logs for actual position
2011-01-30 15:00 - TP5098 (New Marton)
trig-in-a-hedge beside a very deep very narrow lane. Didnt go in field due to nearby flock of pregnant sheep and close farm, so scrambled up beside road
2011-01-29 15:55 - TP5965 (Shrawardine Resr)
short walk up a lane in the Severn valley
2011-01-29 15:30 - TP6379 (The Edge)
another shropshire trig-in-a-hedge. quick sprint from easy parking spot.
2011-01-29 11:15 - TP1613 (Breidden Hill)
Curiosly the trig is on the lowest of the 3 main Breidden Hills. Good day to climb up from the carpark as the ground was hard with frost... would be a slithery trek up through the woods if wet. Great views across the Severn valley. 75mins round trip from the carpark to the north, 300m climb (NB that path closed one day a week in shooting season , Tuesday if I remember). Obvious hillfort on one of the other Breiddens, a less obvious one around this summit.
2011-01-29 11:15 - TP8961 (Rodneys Pillar Monument)
Retrospective log on 13th May 2012. Visited while bagging the trig. Photo from today taken from trig at LLanymynech.
2011-01-16 16:45 - TP5196 (Nunthorpe Resr)
No chance of getting over that fence. Failing light but lonely trig visible in its cage. Views out to the north over Tees Valley towns & industry, quite pretty when lit up at night.
2011-01-16 16:05 - TP2035 (Castle House Farm)
Unexpectedly pleasant walk up the farm drive from the south, trig is on a footpath. In good condition in well-kept farmland. As farm trigs go, this is a quality one.
2011-01-16 15:15 - TP6927 (Whorlton Moor)
Nice to get up on the hills after bagging several trigs in farmland. squally showers but impressive views north over the Tees valley industry & conurbation. As others have noted, theres a benchmark on the nearby standing stone
2011-01-16 14:30 - TP6254 (Summerfield House)
On top of a hill in a grain field. jogged up from the nearby bridleway hoping no-one at the 4 farms in sight were looking that way.
2011-01-16 14:10 - TP6034 (Smeaton Farm)
walked in from the west, no legal footpath. Farmer at farm to the NE was staring, so took the photos and beat a hasty retreat.
2011-01-16 13:50 - TP3361 (Girsby Grange)
Definitely nothing there, no base or anything. Hadnt read previous logs, so failed to search the farm buildings for it. However if the farmer is interested in selling, I would quite like a trig point as garden feature (with barbed wire fence around to make sure no-one ever completes the UK trigs...joke...honest)
2011-01-16 13:20 - TP6841 (Westfield House)
On some manky farmland, near a smelly farm (?pigs). Drove down the private road from the north, parking before the farm cottage (no gates or warning signs) then walked past the farm itself and its f-off-or-you-will-die notice via the bridleway. Trig in field boundary just off the bridleway. Not a quality experience.
2011-01-16 13:05 - TP0122 (Eryholme)
still uncovered so found it immediately; didnt need to resort to GPS or tape-measures. On a not very interesting verge.
2011-01-02 15:55 - TP4814 (Midhopelaw Pike)
Dull walk across frozen moorland. A few depressed sheep but no other signs of life.
2011-01-02 14:35 - TP2344 (Coldtown Beacon)
Drove along road to it from east, but had to walk the last 300m as the road was impassable due to snow drifts
2011-01-02 13:30 - TP3247 (Fourlaws Hill)
Foolishly didnt check previous logs before trying to find it, so failed to take full 10 figure grid reference with us for the GPS and had to estimate it off the OS map when it became obvious we were not going to find the trig visually. Is buried in a mass of fallen trees and snowdrifts so we gave up after half an hour of rather dangerous stumbling around... lucky not to have broken anything. Possibly it is more buried under trees than when last visited 2.5y ago. Will return when the snow has gone with the full co-ordinates.
2011-01-02 13:05 - TP0114 (Buteland Fell)
no problem locating it; the block was uncovered on a tussocky verge. It is in line with the fence along the north side of the road running SW, and with the old wall line across the field to the SE (see my pictures, blue umbrella marks the spot).... so fancy business with tapes isnt needed. The nearby fence post 10.53m north of the block, marked as P/N IN POST on the OS sketch, has a stud hammered into its top surface. The pink spray paint has gone.
2011-01-02 12:46 - TP1082 (Batey Catreen)
Drove up the gated road from the east, and carried on to the nearby bolt. Views right down to a snow-covered Cross Fell.
2011-01-02 12:30 - TP4519 (Long Crag Gunnerton)
easy walk from layby, ground frozen so dampness not a problem. Usual extensive Northumbrian view.
2011-01-02 12:15 - TP3187 (Five Lane Ends)
Dead trig, easy to find lying at corner of wood. Still has plug and flush bracket, in fact is essentially undamaged apart from being on its side.
2010-12-31 21:23 - TP1763 (Bullamoor Resr)
not usually put off by 6ft fences but the broad day light and close proximity of a house and farm put me off. So it's a seen but not touched.
2010-12-26 12:35 - TP3510 (Grey Nag)
very cold (-3 on car thermometer)windy walk over snow covered moorland via Black Fell from Hartside cafe, taking just over 2 hours each way. Some Peregrinus-brand snow-shoes would have been handy in places (see his log for TP 7425). Views across to snowy Lakeland fells, not a biker in sight but some kids with sledges and cross-country skiers near the cafe.
2010-12-26 11:25 - TP1407 (Black Fell)
bagged en route to Grey Nag from Hartside cafe. Very cold, quite windy and snow covering the moor
2010-12-18 14:10 - TP4801 (Middle Fell)
Drove over from Weardale on snowy road. Had planned to park at summit of Nenthead-Garrigill road but not passable in a hatchback, so drove round via Alston, parked on the south side and walked up via access land. Great snowy views across to Cross Fell. Called in to photograph an icicle clad Ashgill Force on the way home, an interesting drive in -10C over the moors to Middleton and then over to Frosterley.
2010-12-11 16:05 - TP4792 (Mickley)
last trig of the day, a quick climb over a gate from the road into a muddy field, darkness falling.
2010-12-11 15:40 - TP4685 (Maryside Hill)
Easy walk over the golf course from the footpath. No golfing activity due to snow. Friendly horse in next field. View up the TYne Valley
2010-12-11 15:10 - TP2302 (Coalway Plantation)
Sad trig in a neglected field on the side of the Tyne valley. Approached by the footpath from the south, parking at the Kyo Lane junction and found it without problems. Surprised a fox which trotted away across a field
2010-12-11 14:35 - TP1684 (Broomfield Farm)
Approached by path from west, then up second hedge and right along next hedge.
2010-11-20 16:13 - TP5374 (Penhill)
Walked in on bridleway from east in cloud and failing light. Agree with previous log the trig is a chubby little chap. dark by the time we regained the car
2010-11-20 15:05 - TP4810 (Middleham Low Moor)
dismal day so no views, but an interesting location by the exercise gallops for the Middleham racing stables (the main industry round here). My 200th unique trig (thought I had reached that last weekend, but miscounted my revisits and fail-to-finds)
2010-11-20 14:05 - TP4634 (Manor House Farm)
Trig in a turnip field on a drizzly cold day. Not even at the highest point in this dull countryside.
2010-11-13 16:15 - TP4012 (Hopealone)
walked on forest track to 400m east of aerial, then up hill along lines of trees to the top of the hill and east along ridge. Despite falling darkness and dense treecover (making GPS useless), found trig without difficulty on north edge of ridge above small quarry.
2010-11-13 15:20 - TP7000 (Winshields)
walked up from car park, great views on a bright November afternoon: Cross Fell with streaks of snow already
view towards cross fell
2010-11-13 14:00 - TP3334 (Gaterley Hill)
Walked up soggy track. In sea of heather like many a North Pennine trig, but gets an extra point for the rainbow and the extensive views on a crisp afternoon
2010-11-07 15:40 - TP5247 (Oswestry Station)
Quick run up the hill from the back of a housing estate...muddy underfoot, good views over to the hillfort which was the next port of call.
2010-11-07 15:20 - TP7182 (Oswestry)
Easy bag thanks to information from other logs. Height tag still insitu.
2010-11-07 15:05 - TP0181 (Llynclys)
Easy ish to find with photo's from other logs and map off OS website. Still relatively uncovered from last visit in Feb.
2010-11-07 14:50 - TP0606 (Oswestry FBM Aux 1)
Very lucky, parked right next to it. Slightly overgrown but found quite easily with OS sketch and information from previous logs. About a metre from a lump of concrete on the road/lay-bye edge, diagonally to the left and towards the hedge.
2010-11-07 11:05 - TP4938 (Mount Farm)
Almost lost in the hedge. Guessed at the condition! Flush bracket faces away from the road so did a quick nip over the fence. Lovely views on the clear morning.
2010-11-06 16:05 - TP6555 (Town Hill)
Walked up after visiting the castle ruins. Wonderful views and very helpful adjacent pillar with markers for the surrounding hills. Popular spot today with families and dog walkers. Muddy!
2010-11-06 16:05 - TP8971 (Town Hill Monument)
Retrospective log on 13th May 2012. Visited at same time as trig pillar.
2010-11-06 15:10 - TP1112 (Beacon Ring)
Hidden in the trees at the south end of the copse. Copse was planted by the husband of one of our party in 1953 to celebrate the coronation. Nice little hill fort and good views over the Stiperstones (south east) and Cader Idris (south west)
2010-10-30 17:50 - TP2052 (Catton Beacon)
walked up at sunset, past the radio masts. surprisingly good view... down to Cross Fell.
2010-10-30 17:20 - TP3686 (Haydon Fell)
a short walk up farmland
2010-10-30 16:55 - TP1019 (Barcombe)
good views down to Vindolanda and over to the Wall
2010-10-30 15:50 - TP5878 (Sewingshields Crags)
stunning location on edge of whinsill crags, with great views to the west of the whinsill outcrops and to the east towards Hexham. Parked car beside The Old Repeater Station hostel and called in for a rather good cup of coffee after descending.
2010-10-30 14:30 - TP1384 (Birk Hill)
walked up from the T-junction and came directly to the trig through the dense plantation. Just to the west of the deer fence.
2010-10-30 14:00 - TP5591 (Ravensheugh Crags)
great views, and a small stone circle (The Goatstones) nearby with one of the stones cup-marked
2010-10-17 15:30 - TP6742 (Warlaw Pike)
Bagged this one on a round trip from Baybridge via Bulbeck Common. Lovely early winter afternoon, made the heather bash worthwhile.
2010-10-17 14:30 - TP1759 (Bulbeck Common)
First of 2 trigs bagged on a round from Baybridge via Warlaw Pike and Shildon Engine House. Some heather bashing but mostly good tracks and not too wet...yet!
2010-09-25 18:00 - TP3460 (Great Knipe)
Parked at the road junction with the Kaber/Tan Hill Rd and walked up via access land. Couple of fences to climb, steep in places, and some wet bits. But grand view with the setting sun over the Lake Disrict and the moorland tops of the north Pennines and Yorkshire Dales spread out around. Pity about the faint noise of the A66 far below
2010-09-25 15:35 - TP7506 (Swarth Fell Pike)
easily found near the summit cairn, close to the fence. didnt bother to bail it out. grand views. GPS (a rather knackered 2nd hand one) gave location as 76145 95746. approached from Wild Boar Fell. Descended to Cotegill Bridge: steep in places otherwise straightforward
2010-09-25 14:10 - TP6943 (Wild Boar Fell)
walked up the bridleway from the east then south along the path up the ridge. cool clear day with fine views. went on to the line of cairns SW of the summit... almost as large as 9 Standards Rigg cairns and more spectacularly sited on the edge of the crag. then walked south to log the easily found concrete-ring trig on Swarth Fell Pike
2010-09-18 19:11 - TP2989 (East Lightside Farm)
Parked at end of farm driveway and walked to the trig.
2010-09-18 18:55 - TP3754 (Hexham Common)
Feels like its on the edge of nowhere! Another one to drive to get dropped off and picked up by your kind driver.
2010-09-18 18:05 - TP6732 (Warden Hill)
Lovely views up the south tyne valley. Hill fort obvious in the nest door field.
2010-09-18 17:36 - TP4416 (Limestone Bank)
The offending cows were in the field, one having a good rub as I approached. Stunning views on a section of Hadrians wall.
2010-09-18 17:24 - TP4822 (Military Road)
Drive by trig...or drop off and pick up!
2010-09-18 17:17 - TP0594 (Hexham FBM Aux 1)
Again an easy find due to previous logs and pictures, still uncovered from the last visit a year ago.
2010-09-18 17:13 - TP7245 (Hexham)
Easy to spot due to the help of other logs.
2010-09-18 16:55 - TP0117 (Beaufront)
Dont want to be pedantic but was thinking this should be logged as 2 separate items, rivet and surface block. Rivet easy to find, block still uncovered from previous visit a year ago (thanks).
2010-09-18 16:00 - TP3755 (Hexham Racecourse)
Easy to see and find, someone loves it as it has new whitewash.
2010-09-18 15:45 - TP2780 (Dilston)
Walked up the wood like others and scaled the fence. Nice views down the Tyne valley.
2010-09-12 19:10 - TP6333 (Telfit Moor)
Views up and down Swaledale. Easy find from the path, had its own guard sheep today!
2010-09-12 18:30 - TP2399 (Copperthwaite Moor)
Trig easy to find from the wall along fremington edge. Heather short so for a change easy going. Nice views up and down Swaledale.
2010-09-12 16:50 - TP7380 (Stonesdale Moor)
Parked at Stonesdale bridge and walked straight up the moor alongside Pitshaw gill. Easy find, straight onto in with the help of previous logs and photos. Abit overgrown but still in good condition. Views across to 9 standards and Great shunner fell.
2010-09-12 16:05 - TP0115 (Sleightholme Moor)
This is about as good as it gets! A rivet on a rock in a layby....and there's nowt wrong with me! Easy find thanks to other logs and pics.
2010-09-12 15:50 - TP3508 (Grey Grit)
Easy to get from the track to the disused quarry. Good views today over to the lake district peaks and 9 standards rigg.
2010-08-29 15:25 - TP6962 (Winder Hill)
Someone looks after the trigs well in the Howgills! Good coat of white paint, and glorious views of the surrounding fells and the lake district peaks. Steady stream of vistors today.
2010-08-29 14:05 - TP6361 (The Calf)
Up via Cautley, rewarded with fabulous views all round, over to the lake district fells in the west, pennine escarpment to the north east and south east to the 3 peaks of the yorkshire dales. Very windy on the tops but still good walking weather and far less populated than the lakes or the yorkshire dales. Shame it was on the TV tonight! Came down via Winder and back up to the Cross Keys pub.
2010-08-19 19:11 - TP0121 (Wheatley Hill)
Round Two!...not to be defeated returned this evening with appropriate lengths of string, tape and marker pegs. Triangulation exercise carried out with the measurements from the OS site database. Success after not so long, block was about 4 inches down and had to be dug out. Multiple photos to assist others on their quest. If it helps its 1.73 meters from the centre of the white line at the edge of the road. Least I can sleep easy tonight.
2010-08-16 19:30 - TP0121 (Wheatley Hill)
Couldnt find it! Took photo from previous log, plus newly acquired GPS, but unable to locate block. Searched for over an hour got very funny looks from passing motorists. Got the map off the OS site now and will purchase a long tape and return! This is my last 'trig' in County Durham so it will NOT defeat me.
2010-08-16 15:39 - TP3040 (Eldon Hall Farm)
Dared to access by the track with big private no access you are on CCTV sign. Didnt hang around just slunk in and took the photo and slunk out! Shame as this was the last pillar left for me to bag in County Durham..only a bolt to go and I have the full set of what there is left. I draw the line at visiting sites where trigs used to be...now that is obsessive!!!:)
2010-08-16 15:12 - TP3779 (High Copelaw Farm)
Asked at the Farm, the guy was happy to let me onto his land and pointed me in the right direction. Mixed arable/stock farm, cows looking well in the late summer sun.
2010-08-16 14:34 - TP6813 (West House Field)
Walked in on the bridle way which starts at Foxton Farm. Harvest well underway, concerned farmer offered to let me leave the car in the farmyard so as not to loose wing mirror to tractor and trailer!
2010-08-16 13:20 - TP3059 (Embleton Old Hall)
Walked in from Hurworth Burn Reservoir carpark along public footpath off Castle Eden Walkway. Trig not so grand in situation as its name suggest as it's next to a large dump of farm waste. Quiet warm afternoon, willow being grown as a major crop in this area.
2010-08-15 14:35 - TP4179 (Keverstone Grange)
on edge of arable field, approached from north. No farmer in sight. overgrown with nettles in the field boundary. rather uninspiring trig, not one to revisit.
2010-08-14 18:20 - TP6990 (Windy Hill)
Logged as good condition although as others suggest it does have a crack running down oneside but nothing has fallen off....yet! Lovely views in all directions a little bit of a gem. Watch out for the electric fence and the crumbly wall on the south side.
2010-08-14 18:00 - TP0512 (Kirkby Stephen (1976))
Easily found at the top of the cutting side on the opposite side of the road to the bollarded layby.
2010-08-14 14:30 - TP4789 (Mickle Fell)
disappointed by this trig, should have probably approached from the western side as it was came in from the west via Close House Mine. This is now almost a drive by trig with the track extending into the danger zone of Warcop range to within approximately 300m. Range inactive today only gunfire heard was that of grouse shooting to the north. Misty on the top, only intermittent views but I guess on a clear day they would be good. On the plus side found some really good specimens of galena and barytes at Close House.
2010-08-04 17:47 - TP7188 (Penrith (R))
Risky to get to but all the same its there and in good condition.
2010-08-04 17:40 - TP0593 (Penrith FBM Aux 1)
Easy to find thanks to other logs and photos. Grass short!
2010-08-04 17:10 - TP3514 (Greystoke Park)
Gets a 7 as there were orchids in the woods and jays flying around. Good views over the Caldbeck fells.
2010-08-04 16:48 - TP4042 (How Hill)
Lovely views especially if you like transmitter stations! Still lots of very noisy curious texel sheep in the field.
2010-08-04 16:25 - TP4087 (Hutton Bank)
Parked to the north of the trig and walked in along what appeared to be an old track way. Track way was full of young calves.
2010-08-04 15:47 - TP7129 (Rose Bank)
Quick jump over a field gate. Trig on the fence line. Nice views of pennine escarpment.
2010-08-04 15:30 - TP4130 (Jardens)
Sneaky jump over a fence and brisk walk across field avoiding farmers! Trig still being used as gate post.
2010-07-31 19:30 - TP0124 (Garmondsway)
easily found. 5 meter to the right of large elder bush in the hedge. Plastic bag on photo marks the spot. Wondering if being uncovered by cache hunters as very easy to find.
2010-07-31 19:00 - TP5622 (Reddings Hill)
footpath from the west hard to find due to arable crops. ok once past the farm, detoured to the road to get back to car...easier!
2010-07-31 17:00 - TP5734 (Roseberry Topping)
Busy day at the topping, famlies, couples and tired puppy being carried in a backpack by its owner!!!!! Lovely views all round certainly seems a good cereal harvest this year. Trig has only 1 piece of graffiti on it...yet....
2010-07-31 16:15 - TP5104 (Newby)
Lost in a hedge which is a field boundary. It's 20 meters to the left of the water trough in the first field for those who like me missed it first time I walked along the path. Pigs now in the next field down. Like others parked in the garden centre.
2010-07-31 16:15 - TP0127 (Newby Grange)
Easy to find considering its a long time since last visit. Marker stud in the road centre opposite the block.
2010-07-31 15:00 - TP5606 (Red Hall Farm)
Least we got out the car! Easy bag in nice open farmland.
2010-07-31 14:20 - TP1120 (Beaumont Hill)
Logged from a distance in the middle of oats almost ready to harvest. Will go back later when crop has been taken. Still leaning even from a distance. Saw a roe deer on the way back to car parked in the reservoir access.
2010-07-24 17:00 - TP2793 (Dod Law)
incidental trig logging on a walk to see the cup-&-ring marked rocks in the area. Found 4 of them, but didnt locate others due to 3ft high bracken, gorse, and lack of GPS. Perhaps not the best time of year for the search. did see a group of 3 buzzards hunting over the hill, and a patch of heath-spotted orchids
2010-07-21 18:20 - TP0173 (Llanfairfechan)
stopped in the eastbound lay-by but didnt find it... couldnt be bothered to risk death for the sake of a bolt by crossing the dual carriageway... will have a look in the westbound layby on next trip to Snowdonia
2010-07-21 17:50 - TP5383 (Penmynydd)
very easy to find, seems to be built on top of a stone wall. Pleasant view, apart from the mast. Plug in good condition
2010-07-21 16:30 - TP0770 (Aberffraw)
2010-07-21 16:00 - TP3208 (Porthamel)
unpleasant barbed wire + chicken wire fence to reach it from the road. Stunning view to compensate looking straight up the Llanberis Pass
2010-07-21 12:12 - TP6421 (The Rivals)
also managed to lose the path and had an ineresting scramble to the summit. Beautiful views to Snowdonia and along the coast, with the Iron Age Hill fort and hut circles of the neighbouring lower peak laid out like an archaeological plan. Ravens and a large raptor circling.
2010-07-20 14:20 - TP7318 (Glyder Fach Ferrule)
walked up to Bwlch Tryfan from Idwal Cottage, diverted to the top of Tryfan, then back down to the Bwlch and up the scree path beside Bristly Ridge to the top of Glyder Fach. Bolt is on a slab which is probably the highest solid point of the mountain, in the pile of huge boulders forming the summit heap (nearer the east end of the heap). It has 3 studs around it as previously described. View fantastic, unimpeded by cloud despite the wetness of the day. Descended via Glyder Fawr and the staircase path by the Devils Kitchen
2010-07-19 18:05 - TP6628 (Twt Hill)
Still got graffiti all over it, plus a selection of beer cans all around. Still raining so views not so good, but guess it would be stunning on a clear day.
2010-07-19 14:20 - TP5418 (Pen-Y-Gwaith)
Large slate built stone trig. Up through the mine workings. Steep little climb!...wet wet wet...
2010-07-19 13:30 - TP5521 (Prenol)
7 for the views across to the great and little orme. Easy access from minor road to north and quick sprint across a field to the obvious high ground.
2010-07-19 11:00 - TP1736 (Bryn Iocyn)
Lovely views over the estuary. 2 workers up the near-by transmitter mast. Easy access just off path once through farm yard
2010-07-18 13:30 - TP3422 (Gowbarrow Fell)
7 for the views. Up from Ulcat but down via new national trust path towards Dockray, much easier!
2010-07-18 12:25 - TP4447 (Little Mell Fell)
Quick little stroll from the road north of Lowthwiate. Stone built pillar.
2010-07-10 14:50 - TP0874 (Ardivachar)
nice views bu spolit by the stench of sea weed from the beach, probably washed up in large quantities due to rough sea conditions lately.
2010-07-10 13:30 - TP4725 (Meall Dubh)
great views over the ferry terminal and at last a sunny warm day
2010-07-10 11:30 - TP1280 (Ben Langass)
this one gets a 9 basically for the experience. Saw at least 2 and heard 3 Golden eagles in the small wooded area below the trig, also spotted a short eared owl. Add to that the stone circle, cup marks and chambered carin, what more does a trig need to offer.
2010-07-10 10:15 - TP4908 (Moor Hill (Berneray Island))
Fabulous views back to Harris and the off shore islands. Random birders leaning on the trig..how dare they!
2010-07-09 17:15 - TP7550 (Renish Point)
Again another bolt which is marked on the OS map with a Trig point symbol. Lovely views over to Skye and across the inlet to Rodel. Bolt next to summit cairn unlike Greaval so easier to find.
2010-07-09 11:30 - TP8043 (Rodil Church Tower Apex)
Visited this without realising it's on the trig database. Interesting tombs in church, and a random stray collie looked round with us. Later in the day visited the nearby Renish Point bolt....rarely visited (in fact just us & Peregrinus)
2010-07-08 15:00 - TP7549 (Greaval)
Like Peregrinus saw the symbol on the OS map and went in search of the trig. Bolt found in bedrock to the west of a cairn. Dont use GPS so unable to log exact position. Very windy on the top and got caught in a heavy hail shower...summer eh!
2010-07-08 13:20 - TP2217 (Clett Nisabost)
lovely spot with views over the beaches of Harris.
2010-07-07 15:35 - TP5768 (Rudha Quidnish)
stunning views up and down the coast, still windy and my partner is no longer bothered about treading on "rare"...not.... orchids!
2010-07-07 14:30 - TP3524 (Grose Clett)
Very windy, very cold, very wet and to top the lot i fell over on the moonscape and gave myself a rather large bruise on my leg...wont be doing a revisit here!
2010-07-06 13:45 - TP7634 (Tolmachain)
This is a bolt which is marked on the OS map with a triangulation pillar sign. There are others in the Outer Hebrides previously logged by Peregrinus. The coordinates entered are not GPS accurate, they are map and ruler accurate. Gets a 9 as its my first user added and it has stunning views over the Loch a Siar and north eastwards towards the Gleann Langadail...NOTE TO ADMIN..correct grid reference is NB 09708 04840 (OS database calls it Tolmachain T1NB0904)
2010-07-06 10:00 - TP3038 (Eitshal)
damp damp day..low cloud minimal views.
2010-07-05 18:10 - TP5132 (Nisa Mhor)
lovely views from the trig. 15 mins from car to trig. Masses of spotted heath orchids.
2010-07-05 11:42 - TP7917 (Great Bernera Cairn)
Visited & photographed when logging the bolt a few metres away, but didn't realise the cairn was on the trig database. Had yet to be used as a perch by Mrs Moo Cow... that indignity came the next year.
2010-07-05 11:40 - TP0660 (Great Bernera)
Easy to find by the carin on the flat bedrock
2010-07-04 15:00 - TP1261 (Ben Bragor)
lovely little climb up a hill that rises striaght out the peat bog. Kept to the left of the buildings a the end of the road to try and get some shelter from the wind. Excellent rock formations on the way up with Lewis granite streaking through the rock.
2010-07-04 13:45 - TP6509 (Tom A Mhinisteir)
Short walk from road along a track through peat cutting and the wreck of a car. Seems to be when you finish with a car on the outer hebrides you just leave it in the bog to rot.
2010-07-04 12:35 - TP1892 (Campar More)
rain stopped at last, drove all the way to the trig along a peat cutting track.
2010-07-04 11:40 - TP0661 (Butt of Lewis)
Still raining very heavy so drove the hire car to the trig.
2010-07-04 11:25 - TP7261 (Butt of Lewis 1)
Raining very heavy at the Butt of Lewis. Lovely folds in the rocks just off shore. Have to admit not sure if its the domes on the top or the things on the railings, but i'll take to 2 for my total!
2010-07-04 11:25 - TP7262 (Butt of Lewis 2)
Still raining, still not sure what i'm logging!
2010-07-04 11:20 - TP9674 (Butt of Lewis Lighthouse)
retrospective log when visiting the active stations. Has stopped raining since then.
2010-07-03 18:10 - TP6508 (Tom A Mhile)
2010-07-03 17:00 - TP1279 (Ben Laimishader)
should have been an easy walk but the wind had got up just abit! Still stunning views even when hugging the trig for safety
2010-07-03 12:15 - TP5177 (North Tolsta)
2010-07-02 21:15 - TP1091 (Bayble Hill)
First trig of holiday. Easy access, lots of marsh orchids and spotted heath orchids.
2010-06-26 15:41 - TP5115 (Newsham Moor)
Curlew,redshank,lapwing,oyster-catcher, and various small brown unidentifiable birds. Noise of heavy duty automatic weapons from nearby Feldom army range. Gave the trig in the range a miss, maybe another day. Went on to look at the cup-and-ring marked stones in nearby Osmaril Gill and on Eel Hill.
2010-06-21 20:41 - TP1523 (Bollihope Carrs)
revisit for photo opportunity...lovely warm summer solstice evening...wonderful sunset...
2010-06-12 18:40 - TP1530 (Booze Moor)
long dull slog across wet moorland, parked at county boundary...views not as good as expected, lots of curlew and golden plover...would have been better had i not sat on an ants nest by the pillar!
2010-06-12 17:30 - TP4008 (Hoove Faggergill)
slog over very wet moorland...found first cache withour looking for it!...lovely clear evening views over to the lakeland hills...fells alive with Golden Plover.
2010-06-04 20:10 - TP1712 (Brownley Hill)
Easy walk past the carrs. lots of moorland birds: golden plovers, grouse, curlew, lapwings, snipe. Beautiful summer evening with fine views over West Allendale. 100th trig. Do I get initiated into the inner meaning of this site now, or is this all there is?
2010-06-04 19:20 - TP5688 (Ripley Carrs)
cracked around top and plug missing. Lovely early summer evening but not an inspiring location.
2010-06-03 18:45 - TP2977 (East Grange)
Bog standard trig, lovely hedge!...shame about the roar of the A1
2010-06-03 17:50 - TP7132 (Tripsy Bank)
lovely view to the south...
2010-05-31 13:10 - TP7467 (Bink Moss)
Approached from B6276 up grouse shooting track, then compass bearing from the last shooting butt. No problem finding it despite lack of GPS. Marked by change in vegetation to grass with a clump of reeds by it as well as a very small cairn and a white marker pole for a grouse grit tray. Lots of moorland birds: lapwing, curlew, golden plover, ring ouzel, oystercatcher, red grouse.
2010-05-15 17:30 - TP4765 (Meldon Hill)
tracked across from herdship fell, tees easily crossed without getting feet wet just above reservoir. Masses of interesting stuff on the walk to the trig, including mine at dubbysike (NY7860 3125) with pump still visible in shaft, water wheel building nearby and barium ore scattered around. Stunning views from the top across to highcup nick and crossfell. Patches of snow in sinkholes by the summit, benchmark carved in nearby rock. Trig is sad!
2010-05-15 15:10 - TP7472 (Herdship Fell)
Easy to find even with map and compass!...beside a pole that marks a tray with grit in for grouse...damaged on the legs..lovely views
2010-05-03 16:15 - TP7870 (Lintzgarth 2)
Re entered log on Lintzgarth 2 (24.12.11). Thanks again Ted.
2010-05-03 15:00 - TP5324 (Pasturehouse Farm)
gentle walk across moorland from Hartside cafe. Views much better than the walk!
2010-05-03 12:15 - TP3841 (Highwatch Currick)
walked up from reservoir dam. easy going not too wet.
2010-04-24 16:51 - TP2356 (Collinsons Hill)
nearly 4km across open levelish heather moor (Open Access) after leaving the car at Sleightholme farm on the Pennine Way. would have been a miserable one to bag in bad weather, but tolerable in sunshine, dryish underfoot and lots of moorland birds
2010-04-24 14:10 - TP2185 (Citron Seat)
Sunny day, huge views acoss the moors, far enough from the A66 dual carriageway for it not to be heard or seen.
2010-04-24 13:00 - TP4203 (Kilmond Scar)
Aproached along the footpath above the quarry, remnants of whitewash on pillar. Gorgeous view to the south. Cowslips in full bloom and probably some orchids but not yet in flower.
2010-04-24 12:15 - TP3032 (Eggmartin Hill)
Good views to the north, no bull, looks like 2nd world war era concrete structures next to trig
2010-04-10 12:15 - TP1505 (Blue House)
sunny day, easy to find by farm drive, views across rolling grazing land
2010-04-10 11:10 - TP3788 (High House)
good views over lower Weardale. Well hidden in a thorn hedge. Braved the barbed wire for a closer look.
2010-04-09 19:04 - TP1109 (Beacon Hill North)
Quite a trek in from Hawthorn via the dene, lots of yellow primroses in bloom. Flat calm sea, views a bit hazey.
2010-04-09 17:44 - TP1084 (Batter Law Hill)
Excellent views of the A19! Good condition in a patch of scrub land surrounded by arable fields.
2010-04-09 17:22 - TP0126 (Eagle Farm)
Easy to locate thanks to the other logs and pics.
2010-04-09 16:57 - TP6621 (Tuthill Quarry)
In a sad state, no flush bracket and the top 6 inches or so missing. Walked in from Low Wing Close and found a convienient hole in the metal fencing.
2010-04-09 16:10 - TP5215 (Old Cassop)
Gentle strole from the side of the dual carriage way. Warm afternoon, spring at last!
2010-04-05 12:55 - TP3168 (Findon Cottages)
good coat of whitewash, shame about the constant hum of the A691.
2010-04-05 12:35 - TP2120 (Charlaw Moor)
vast views off to the east, Newcastle, Gateshead and Penshaw monument..glimpse of the sea as well.
2010-04-05 12:00 - TP5494 (Pontop Pike)
dismal, rain and blustery, on a good day should be able to see the sea from here...today only grey cloud
2010-04-03 13:10 - TP5588 (Raven Hills)
sleet falling, dull grouse moor but impressive view along Teesdale
2010-04-03 12:05 - TP3031 (Eggleston Moor)
miserable weather, trig on heather moorland just above conifer plantation, easy access up short track and then gentle heather slope
2010-03-10 17:40 - TP5744 (Roughside Moor)
Beautiful red sunset and views of the moors still streaked with snow after a hard winter. Snow piled high each side of the road across the moors south to Stanhope on the way home.
2010-03-10 16:45 - TP6216 (Stoterley Hill)
Met farmers pack of 5 dogs, but not the farmer. Dropped straight back down to the road through the heather avoiding the farm. Huge open landscape.
2010-02-21 15:20 - TP3924 (Hillhead)
next to a very large mast of some kind. No views today, thick fog. Another very muddy track next to a very smelly farm.
2010-02-21 15:20 - TP5127 (Night Fold Field)
Lovely views down the coast and over Alnmouth. Strange to see snow on the beach!
Trig Trig with view south down the coast.
2010-02-21 14:20 - TP5323 (Pasture Hill Plantation)
Damp dark woodland from a muddy slushy track.
2010-02-21 13:45 - TP3044 (Ell Hill)
Location enhanced by 6 inches of new snow, blue sky and rolling sea in the background.
2010-02-20 10:25 - TP7502 (Seahouses)
Its not there anymore. Brackets are still there but no sign of the active station dome.
Empty Brackets Where the Active Station was last sighted
2010-02-14 14:25 - TP3608 (Hard Rigg)
Easy walk on frozen snow and ground, views limited by low cloud level. No plug all 4 sighting holes open.
2010-02-06 16:00 - TP6998 (Winnowshill Common)
Not so easy to find on a gloomy late winter afternoon. For those without GPS follow the wall for about 150m then track into the plantation about 20m. In good condition, white washed and slowly being buried by pine needles! No views but gets a 7 for being so hidden.
2010-02-06 15:15 - TP1032 (Barley Hill)
easy find, tucked behind the field wall next to the T junction.
2010-01-31 15:40 - TP4051 (Humber Hill)
Easy to find, bright white paint, next to mast and small sandstone quarry. Good views of the wind farm.
2009-12-23 12:20 - TP5305 (Park Fell)
stunning sunny day with wonderful views...deep snow and thigh high drifts with plenty of wind chill
2009-10-24 17:00 - TP3720 (Helm)
not its fault all you can hear is the traffic on the A1! Good condition if not a little damp today.
2009-08-31 15:10 - TP7495 (Wear Head)
Steady rain again...another lovely British bank holiday. Lovely hot chocolate in cafe at Wearhead.
2009-08-31 13:45 - TP5723 (Romaldkirk Moor)
Damage around the top and the base. Trig in a sea of flowering heather on a outcrop of millstone grit.
2009-08-31 12:05 - TP3654 (Harter Fell)
Walked up from Middleton Teesdale on the pennine way. Trig is thought by some to be surrounded by burial carins which are now partially overgrown. Kirkcarrion to the east of the trig is reported to have housed a bronze age stone lined grave which was destroyed in the early 19th century.
2009-08-31 11:20 - TP0118 (Stotley Hall)
With the help of the previous logs and a copy of the photographs I found this one. There is a dip in the ground where its been previously dug out, but you need something to dig through the undergrowth with!
2009-08-21 14:34 - TP3609 (Hardberry Hill)
Lovely position in an area covered with the evidence of past mining. Coldberry gutter to the north is worth visiting, landscape and geology stunning for those with an interest, the sharp eyed can spot some small galena veins within the outcropping sandstone.
Trig. Trig point,in the mid ground cronkley scar, in the background great dunn fell, little dunn fell and cross fell.
2009-08-19 16:30 - TP1995 (Carr Brow Moor)
plug insitu indented lettering, plus extra indenting as previously recorded. Partial low cloud and eventually rain but still a wonderful place with lovely views.
2009-08-14 14:30 - TP5905 (Shacklesborough)
plug with indented lettering insitu. Lovely views of Baldersdale and the 3 reservoirs.Would have got an 8 off me if it hadnt started to rain!
2009-08-14 12:50 - TP1709 (Brown Rigg)
Good condition, plug insitu with indented lettering. Lovely walk in on the pennine way from Clove Lodge carpark. Fab views of Goldsborough and Shacklesborough.
2009-08-14 11:35 - TP2691 (Currack Rigg)
Good condition. A bit of a trudge across faceless heather moorland.
2009-08-09 19:02 - TP3080 (Etherley Lane)
overgrown and becoming part of the fence, easy to find under the pylons, no cap good condition.
2009-08-09 18:58 - TP6560 (Toy Top)
parked at the old entrance to the picnic site and walked up through the woods, beginning to get lost in the undergrowth, no plug but condition still good.
2009-08-09 16:35 - TP2762 (Denton Cross Roads)
Good condition, no cap, very well hidden in the over grown hedge.
2009-08-09 12:15 - TP7376 (York Minster)
Bolt visable to the right of the cameras on the center span, (keep the entrance stairs to your right). Have to say i missed it and my friend spotted it! Stunning views on one of the best days of the summer. Datum in the west end easy to find.
OS Datum, west end York Minister
2009-08-08 15:00 - TP4552 (Louven Howe)
long slog in on track from the north west, views mostly obscured by the large forest to the east, however once past this there are good views towards the sea and Whitby. Inland its just wall to wall heather moorland, beautiful in its own way. Auxillary trig got at the same time, condition remains as reported before, 4 large cracks running the full lenght of the pipe.
2009-08-08 15:00 - TP7930 (Louven Howe Aux 1)
logged at same time as nearby trig
2009-08-08 11:35 - TP4017 (Horcum)
As others have stated, easy to get from the Hole of Horcum car park, slightly boggy around the trig itself.
2009-08-05 16:30 - TP2051 (Catterick Moss)
no plug...stunning views of weardale and bollihope common...wonderful place to spend a late summer afternoon. For those interested in the Geology/minerology of weardale west of the trig towards the carin and just to the south is a fantastic example of a mineral vein outcroping at the surface (slitt vein).
2009-07-29 18:55 - TP5459 (Pit House Plantation)
a damp day, still good views due west towards the windfarm and south where the dark stormy cloud base was at the level of the trig point.

Poor views from the actual trig point due to plateau nature of the summit. Worth a vist to Carr Craggs almost due south of trip point. Northen end of the craggs have examples of cup marks which some think are bronze age rock art, further south are a collection of large millstones left insitu for some reason by the stonemasons. Much better views from the craggs of upper teesdale, crossfell, great and little dunn fells.
