On top of a tumulus :>( Watch out for the 3 long horned bulls.
Not to be messed with! Thankfully a wire fence between me and them!

Approached from Cleveland way. Cut across fields Met the farmer tending his horses and long horned cattle, he directed us through the maze of electric fences. Pillar on a mound (tumulus) covered in long grass surrounded by a recent;y havested silage/hay crop.

Reached from footpath heading east from Cleveland Way on northern side of trig. Had to negotiate gallops, but field harvested with tractors on field to collect bales. The tumulus on which the trig stands is infested with nettles. It was a good job I wasn't wearing shorts.

pillar ontop of grassy tumulus within a horses gallop. Fairly straightforward to reach from the Cleveland way. Fence on south edge of field is apparently electric.

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!

Viewed the pillar from the Cleveland Way, but didn't have time to get any closer.

Approached this one from the bridleway to the north and so avoided the electric fences encountered by others. It is a case of timing your visit to avoid the horses running around the gallop. Like other TP Baggers before me, I expected this one to be harder to reach that it was. Perched on a very grassy tumulus with nice views. Some surface crazing.

Passed nearby whilst walking a stretch of the Cleveland way from Helmsley to Osmotherley with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA. So this slight detour was an opportunity to visit that was just too good not to miss. Followed the fence from the turn off suggested by others. Had to climb one fence and go through two electrified gates to reach the pillar on slightly raised area. Could not see the pillar until about fifty yards away because of the mist but knowing the area it is likely to be a good viewing point. Pillar in good condition.

Parked car in the Sutton Bank visitor centre did not have to pay as too early starts at 8.30 am. Picked up the Cleveland way path followed fence line to Seanmac grid ref SE50927 83393 thanks for that turned right keeping electric fence to right till reached the gallop track cross to find trig on Tumulus. good around views with no horses running today.

Pillar in good condition except for minor surface crazing. On edge of tumulus in grassy field not far off the Cleveland Way. Excellent views today in all direction.

On private land inside a racing track for horses. From the visitor centre walk North West along the Cleveland Way to SE50927 83393 then turn right off the path through the scrub and the trig is on a raised mound of land. Watch out for the electrified fences and horses riding around the track!

One sighting-hole open; tarmac plug; extensive surface cracks on FB face. On top of tumulus - would be extensive views on a good day, but this wasn't. No nags today.

Ignored the pay and display and parked roadside by the gallops where the footpath leaves the road then headed direct in best low visibility balck and green for the trig. Damage very minor compared to some I've seen today

Would have been a good view if not misty but interesting visit and near cache. BM no is 2954 not S2954
26th Jul 2004 22:26 by Pengy&Tigger
Damaged but repaired. Found while caching. Bracket no looks like 2954 to me from the pic.

Must remember not to rely on photography for the flush bracket number! Need to return. Revisited on 27.6.04, now very well protected and partially hidden by nettles and thistles. This time wrote down the flush bracket number, just as well as the camera batteries went flat on me!
