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!

A few shallow cracks, else vgc. Metal cap, deep letters. Trig by cairn (tumulus?) beside block-paved hardstanding, which has a few Brickhouse Dudley inspection covers :-) Windy misty day - heavy rain on the way down. From East Kielder: footbridge, Path to Three Pikes (fine slender curricks) then tussocky plod via Hogswood Moor.

Visited in conjuction with neighbouring Berrymoor Edge. Parked on forest drive at NY712983. Followed fenceline south to ridge then SW along the summit plateau. The pillar is in good condition. Spider centre retains original OS cap with deep indented lettering. Flush bracket faces due north. Vented through south sight hole. The pillar was completed on 14th May 1954 costing £57.7s.6d. In 1957 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT72/22 in the Jedburgh block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1958. The trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1978. A hard standing platform has been laid at the summit but this has not affected the trig or the summit cairn. 360° panorama includes Kielder Water and much of Kielder Forest. Photographed 21/06/2008, GRP.

Working on the hard standing, for the RAF, so drove to the site.

A new hardf standing has been built at the side of the trig - probably for heavy artillery. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
