Hi,

I search out and bag only triangulation pillars. Does anyone know how many of these there are in the UK?


Go to http://trigpointing.uk/trigs
Then on the search form, select 'Type' as Pillar
This tells us that there are currently 6903 trig pillars known.

Its possible to refine the search; e.g. only pillars in good condition.
