Revisit in order to log original destroyed pillar, now replaced. Parking available off Rural Lane to the E then straight up the obvious path up the common. At a crossroads of footpath/bridleway signs bear left, then soon after left again and the existing trig can be found with its own bench nearby. Lots of early morning dog walkers. Where Sheffield starts to rise to its Pennines, all in all a nice spot.

Camping in nearby Goathland. So my route was up the Goathland Moor road, across the A169 and down the Foster Howes Rigg. Pillar in good condition with original plug and metalwork intact. Lovely views of the purple moors and the coast, Ravenscar, Robin Hoods Bay. Having only done OS map research I didn't know about the nearby aux, but will deffo return for that if I can one day. Great walking country, if somewhat boggy due to recent rain. Walking back and regrettably going home a day early due to Storm Aileen warnings.

On way home from a weekend in Skegness with my daughter. Her 7th trig and second in a week! There is a layby heading W on the S side of the A158 just after Sausthorpe. It isn't advertised until you are almost on top of it, so prepare as you drive up the hill. Once out of the car there is an obvious path taking you behind the layby into the field. Turn left and look for the pillar, which was hidden a bit in the hedge as it is August. Melissa spotted it first and we both managed to battle through and touch the trig. Condition appears good and will hopefully remain so, given the rural location. Nice views S across lovely Lincolnshire.

I parked at Bankes Park in Billinge then walked down Beacon Road to its conclusion where a raised concrete path takes you to a small compound. Turn R after the compound and good paths will lead you towards the lump. No fences, open ground, no trespass - easy. A very interesting trig with big views - Liverpool, Manchester, Bolton, Winter Hill, Fiddlers Ferry and more. Top damaged, with metalwork gone. FB intact, note no S prefix. A lovely summer's afternoon and my first Merseyside trig is the county top and a Marilyn! Ace.

Day 9 of 10 A Bowland and Furness walk. Last trig of this year's hike. Black Combe, often seen from St Bees head, or the coastal railway (usually in mist) we had been heading for this all walk, the peninsulas often taking us away and back towards it. One of those chance of a lifetime moments. So pleased to have a fine day to do it. The ascent from Silecroft via a relatively easy path felt akin to rising from the deep blue sea in a virtual hot air balloon. Lovely, lovely views I will never forget. As for the trig itself it is set within a makeshift wind shelter, damage to top, spider exposed but reset in concrete thankfully. Some moron has stolen the OS plaque and some scratching on the spider itself. And why do some goons feel the need to leave litter at the summit? A day to cherish, its a 10 from Len.

Day 4 of 10 A Bowland and Furness Walk. I'm really proud of my next 3 logs, this being the first. This walk was devised in the full knowledge that it was not possible to cross the Bowland massif from Slaidburn to Caton without the necessity of a wild camp. The next morning, still alive, a big decision was made to go for it and leave the Hornby Road for the massif at SD652587. Fences and walls can be followed to this summit, but boggy it certainly is, with hundreds of gulls circling overhead, this is one of England's last wilderness areas. I'm logging as slightly damaged as there is some erosion to the base of this pillar now I imagine due to weathering. Onto Ward's then....

Parked at Rectory Park then followed Kirklees Way. Found the gate straight after the railway bridge but could not see the pillar. Decided to carry on and turned left at the Canal. Soon down this Millbank Quarries come into view and it is possible to find a way through them and up to the pillar which is indeed in the very corner of the field. Be careful if going this way as trust me the field dash would be easier! As said trig hidden in hedges and hard to spot. Also signs of much partying in the quarries by the natives. Good fun this one.

I parked in Golden Acre Park but quickly escaped the Bank Holiday crowds via the Leeds Country Way through Eccup Whin wood then the Dales Way link path. The bag proved easy, the pillar is behind a dry stone wall near the trees on the West side of the wall. It's only a short detour from the ROW and easily seen. Fencing has now gone from near the trig and condition is good, plastic plug, no damage. Worth continuing N over the brow for a fantastic view of Lower Wharfedale, Wharfedale rail viaduct, Almscliffe Crag. Leeds becoming the Dales.

Walked up from Normanton. Used this as a reconnaissance mission for the surviving trig pillar. So I did a full circular of Marshall (or Plump) Hill. The pillar is not visible from the bridleway to the W but the field is open. The pillar is visible from the lane to the E, a tantalising 100m or so away. Due to crops I didn't go for it today, will wait for a better opportunity, but for my efforts I am claiming the destroyed trig. Decent views of West and South Yorkshire.

Made a climb of it by parking at Meadowhall, then across the Don and a steep climb up Jenkins Road. A paved track runs up to the site of the hill fort and can't be missed, an information board about Wincobank Hill is sited at the entrance. Another board is located at the site of the hill fort and this is the area where I assume the pillar was located. Sadly it is gone and I found no traces. The site is still worth a visit though for historical interest and for the views over Meadowhall and the Don Valley. A little urban oasis, the site deserves a trig what a shame it has gone!

Day 5 of 12 Dent to Boot Walk. From Pooley Bridge via Swinburn's Park. The shooting lodge on the OS map was nowhere to be seen and the map does not show the path to the trig, but believe me you can't really miss it. Easy climb NW from the marked shooting lodge and the trig soon comes into view resting on top of a crag which is easily climbed as we did, or avoided if you wish. Trig seems a bit wonky but in good nick with NT plaque. Views lovely but a popular place. Steepish path down to Dockray for a nice pint then onto Threlkeld via the old coach road. This was to prove my last trig success of this particular adventure, I got 3 out of 6. Bad weather prevented High Seat, Pillar was over ambitious with a tent on your back (needs to be the focus of the day) and Harter Fell, well we had a go from the Dunnerdale Forest and failed on a near vertical ascent - tip ignore the marked OS path from the S and follow Wainwright instead.

A much better outing than expected. Parked at Thornhill Lees and walked W along the Long Cut from the Calder. Picked up the dismantled railway line which made a pleasant walk, crossing the Calder and running adjacent to Dewsbury Country Park. Came off the line W of Dewsbury Moor after which the pillar played a bit of hide and seek with us. The reality is that there are many more paths than are shown on the OS map. Locating Lakeside equestrian centre was the key after which a track runs W and veers S to the trig. The location was not as expected although there are muck piles I found it a quite oasis amidst the urbanity. Pillar in good condition and can be tigged easily, FB faces the path but was overgrown with nettles. OS plug intact. Best view SSW to Thornhill Edge and E to Dewsbury.

This runs E of the boundary fence. Once the fence ends and turns W there is a visible track running along the N boundary of the school. Following this you come to the trig, sitting just behind the school boundary fence, tantalisingly! It appears in good condition, although slight graffiti ("sex", really?). Hopefully the school will look after this one. Decent views over Leeds city skyline, Elland Rd stadium.

Uninspiring area.

Turned a 360 mile journey home from Truro into a 380 mile one bagging this one, my first Devon trig and a primary to boot! I left the A30 at Monkton following some very narrow and muddy lanes to Beacon then to the NT car park located to the E of the hill. Look for the small gap on the W side of the road its not obvious. From the car park there is a gate. Instead of the obvious path shortly after here turn right and you can follow a grassy path to the summit. Trig in good condition, missing cap. Lovely views, interesting hill fort location.

Walked down the road that is perpendicular to the A650 heading W, found Tingley Hall Rise and followed to the trig garden.

There is a public footpath from New Road which leads to the E of the woodland SE of the compound, but the woodland proved unwelcoming and very overgrown.

Camping at Gordale for two nights in some testing weather. Fortunately, the rain cleared for this one which was only a short walk from camp up Hawthorns Lane then off SE along the bridleway which runs virtually to the trig. Plug missing but condition good. Really really good 360 view and away from the endless tourists of the cove and scar. Classic.

Dedication and good research brought me my first Cornish trig today. Faced with a 360 mile drive home from Truro I had researched the site and decided to have a pop at this one. Armed only with my road atlas and memory from other logs I have read, so thanks guys. The minor road from Carthew is found near a pub. The car park is located near to the large masts. A path is easily found heading E from the car park. Today it was a bit spikey and overgrown and the trig took a while to be spotted in this landscape but it is on the ancient mound coming into view as you follow the path, about 400 yards or so. Plug missing but the pillar did not seem particularly damaged, just surviving miraculously among this devastated landscape. I would agree with others, there is something quirky and surreal about this one, an enjoyable visit made even better by the fact that I could see both north and south coasts of Cornwall from this Primary. Did I pretend to be the Doctor - maybe. Did I see a Dalek? No, but they may have seen me.....

My absolute favourite of the three trigs bagged this holiday week. Walked from Hartington (easy parking, lovely village) up Beresford Dale crossing and re-crossing the lovely Dove. The trig is located on NT access land, but i found "access" barred by a barbed wire fence meaning me and my dad had to walk to the end of the minor road until we found a small permissive access plaque on a gate near The Whim. The gate was padlocked so we had to climb over it. A short steep climb lead to another locked gate which had to be climbed over. So much for access land. But this is why I loved this trig! Tricky to get to, unpopulated and a truly amazing viewpoint. I truly recommend this one.

The first of 3 trigs bagged while on a family holiday staying at Paddock House farm. You could see this one from my bedroom window. My first Staffordshire trig. Walked up the path from the farm, short but steep and past the old workings. On arrival at the trig I found a pick axe wedged under one of the clips and there was some slight damage to the top of the pillar - vandalism? OS plug intact and decent views. Decided to keep the pick axe, whatever its story - a man needs tools.

I'm from the Went Valley in Ackworth and was on business in Glasgow when I got what is probably gonna be the only chance I will ever get to do this....Glasgow should be proud cos I easy found the Kelvin Walkway from the city centre and walked 4 glorious miles up the river past the Botanic Gardens, old flint mills, locks, weirs, disused rail crossings, and up to Maryhill Park and the trig which gives views north to the Campsie Fells that are worth anything to see. Trig is just in the park for you to soak it all for yourself - enjoy x

Trig 3/5 Ackworth to Mam Tor Walk. After leaving the Kirklees Way to join the Pennine Way heading south. I completed the PW in 2000 and remember the hell that was getting to this trig through the peat bog morass. How things change! Now tamed by a paved track, the peat morass is showing signs of recovery, so it is better for the hill I suppose, but something of the challenge is now gone forever. Still, this is the highest bit of land you can see from where i live and will always be special for the years of looking up to it from afar. Now completed again on a long hike with friends so cool. Where West Yorkshire meets Derbyshire, views to die for if clear.

The most excellent walk from Wintersett via the Barnsley canal and the old Athersley railway line, returning on the Ryhill line, the best 12 miles of the year so far.

Barnsdale, my neck of the woods and I am proud of it. 8 months into bagging and in my top 20 nearest trigs so this had been bugging me a bit. As I was about to spend a whole week working in London I called for my bro and informed him I needed some assistance with a trig. Parked as you do in the cafe layby at the bar and picked the gate as a crossing into the private field from the new road to the north. Even in the dark my trig eyes could pick up the pillar about a five minute walk away. Great views, trig in good nick and for me a sense that this place would have meant even more long long ago in the days when these parts were more fought for and lawless. A boundary where North South and West Yorkshire meet. As a footnote (and another of trigpointing's joys) I could never see this trig from the A1 - on my return from London a week later there it was to welcome me home.

Parked at Sainsburys and me being me had a nosey around walking south then turning west down Colton East Lane the reward being a view over the dark Aire valley and Temple Newsam.

Onto Upton Beacon then, and the top of our valley having the knowledge that Robyn de Hode really did once ride this corner of Sherwood Forest we know only now as Barnsdale. Don't just bag the trig though the fun is heightened by the Went Hill traverse. If you only bag it then you have missed the trick, go on go when nightfall is close and take on our Mr Hode in the woods of Barnsdale. Outstanding.
