After we visited Housesteads Roman Fort we dropped by to pay this one a quick visit. Windy and cold today but with great views.

Encountered on day 3 of Hadrian's Wall walk. Located just into the Southern edge of Northumberland National Park. Pillar has remains of a cream paint job; cap missing, no plug; 3 sight holes sealed, although 1 of them is opening up. Good views N, W & E; S obscured by small copse.

No cows guarding today! Thankfully. Difficult to park. There is a layby just down the road, but it was full of caravans. Nice views.

Third time lucky for this pillar. The first attempt had the thing in a cloud so no point in visiting. Second attempt had a hunt occupying all the parking within a mile, so gave up on that. Next day, clear sky and no prats on horses! Best approached from parking to the west due to high-speed traffic along the old military road. Pillar in vgc with FB facing NNE-ish, no cap or plug and NNE/EES sightholes open. The pillar has been painted white, but, as noted previously, is quite rubbed in places. Worth having a look at the nearby Mithraic Temple and Brocolita fort too. Cracking views.

The offending cows were in the field, one having a good rub as I approached. Stunning views on a section of Hadrians wall.

The road is a clearway but there is a handy pull in just to the west around the corner. From there it is a very gentle stroll back along the wall. The previously mentioned white paint is suffering from animals rubbing up against the trig - its a greasy brown in places now. Extensive views to the north, west and east, so allied to the history of the place deserves a high score.

Easily accessible and highly visible. On Hadrians Wall footpath. handy parking area and stile just to the west which enables a visit to this trig and the cache at Limestone Corner. Pillar in good codition except that plug is missing. Reasonable views but sound from nearby road spoils the solitude feeling.

Contrary to Peripatetic, we braved the wind and were walking HW trail east to west so this was the point it got interesting. Second trig in this direction; no cows, clear day and great views to the north (we debated whether we were looking all the way to the Cheviots)
17th Jun 2007 12:58 by dpeberdy
Having just visited Black Carts Turret on Hadrian's Wall and heading to Housesteads, we passed this on the left. Screeched to a halt and strolled to it. Great views!! Me, Mum, 250m
Camera balanced on archaeological remains! Mum and I at the trig. The camera was balanced on some of the remains of Hadrian's wall. Thoughtful of him to make it so I could use it!

Another easy one to do on way north
13th Oct 2006 11:53 by Hartryggers
This one can been seen easily from the road, but care should be taken walking on archaeological gound, good views
15th Sep 2006 16:20 by Rhayader_wanderer
Parking spot about half a mile to the West of the trig then walk back along the wall path. Nice views and a "waymarked trig" also the first place where walkers are asked not to walk in single file in order to prevent erosion.

Great views from this trig which sits on the Hadrian's Wall Trail. The pillar has now even had the trail's sign stenciled onto it! We logged this one whilst doing the walk.

This is easy to see from the road but I had to park about 1/2 a mile away and walk back. The views from here are fantastic.It was also a nice stroll along part of the wall.

Northumberland. On Hadrian's Wall Path. Good views north but close to road.
19th May 2005 00:00 by Peripatetic
This beauty lies at the point where the walk along Hadrian's wall becomes less interesting, if one is going from west to east (which is best, with respect to having the wind behind). It was being defended with great tenacity by a mighty beast...
