Log #96. 303m. The hilltop that this trig used to occupy is now at the bottom of a lake! As with many of these trigs that sat atop good quality rock outcrops, a subsequent quarry has destroyed not only the trig, but the hills they sat on! Located at the 6.5km point of a 9.7 km hike from Blubberhouses to Thruscross Resr, then across Kex Gill Moor to the trig, before dropping back down the long drovers trail (Hall Lane) to Blubberhouses. Not a half bad day today, with excellent visibility and partly cloudy skies. Temp about 16c. Although the trig gets a 0 score, the views get a max 5, with good 360 degree views of loads of landmarks including Menwith Hill, Barden Fell, Round Hill (Beamsley Moor, Kex Ghyll, the Washburn Valley and Resrs, Askwith Moor; and in the far distance, yep you guessed it, Ferrybridge Power Station.

This moorland trig Trig obviously disappeared when the quarry extension was created - according to the Ordnance Survey trig database it was destroyed in June 1991. The quarry hole where the trig was is now flooded and is home to a good population of wading and moorland birds, so some compensation. Ironically the silica sand quarry was only in operation for around 6-7 years before closing in the early 1990's not long after the trig was destroyed. Good, if blustery, views towards Harrogate and the Vale of York.

A long plod over Round Hill from Wharfedale. This trig not shown on current maps - must have been a victim of quarry extension; the quarry itself now abandoned and flooded. Mooched around on the embankment but nothing found.
where it was. OS 1:50000 Sheet 104 (Leeds & Bradford) 1974 edition showing the trig before the quarry was extended.

The trig wasn't there (swallowed up by the settling ponds for the quarry by the looks of it), but there were plenty of nesting oystercatchers to keep us company. OS lists FB no as S7671.
