Parked other side of little bridge, because sign said 'not suitable for motors', but no one else seemed to take any notice. Walked along part of the pennine way, through gate and along public footpath then up to trig, with great 360 views :-)

Is it a sheep or a dog on the trig

Nice space to park at the side of the road. Then a canny steep hill to walk up. But well worth it for the clear views from the top.

Road quite narrow, but just managed to park in gateway. Bit of dodgy parking really. The mud was pretty bad. I had to skirt around big mud patches. At one point my shoe got stuck in the mud & as I pulled it came off! Honestly my shoe was well sucked into quick sand type mud!!! Also lots of cow pats but no cows today. Thank goodness.

Trig in holiday homes complex, very nice grounds with spa etc. Trig on lawned area which is set up as a croquet pitch (if that is the correct term). Very posh indeed. I drove almost all the way to the trig (as Stan Toon did). Visited the trig with Mrs Trig and Grandson Trig. Actually babies first trig! Very nice views, nice complex. A few people around but no one questioned us.

We went the long way round but as Stan Toon say's quickest way is over fence at main road then along the side of field, through long grass. Crops in field.

Stan Toon and I looked for this one together. I think the attached photo is it, but ST was not 100% sure.

Could this be what we are looking for?

The cows were not very friendly, especially when they started stampeding. Thankfully in the opposite direction to us. I do not think these animals are used to seeing strangers. Trig totally buried in hedge. Can not be seen from track. Had to go into field. Would not have found it without Stan Toons GPS.

I was really looking forward to this one. You know soaking up the scenery, maybe a picnic, but no it was surrounded by 3 massive horses!!! However a mans got to do what a mans got to do. I chased the biggest one away then logged the trig with the two little ones in attendance. You just have to show these animals who's boss. Having said that I touched the trig, took some photo's and legged it asap.

Easy one to find. I parked on the grass in the entrance road to Milkhope Farmshop. Early on a sunday morning so no traffic. Trig 5 minute walk along footpath. A bit squelshy in parts due to the amount of rain recently. I should have had my wellies on!

Start of footpath from road opposite the milkhope centre I think open cast mining is going on in the area. Hence the red flag.

I'm not an expert but what an effort to find this one at this time of year. Trig behind hedge, hidden in a field full of long grass, thistles and nettles.

Easy trig to bag, just along from Killingworth village. Little car park almost opposite so no problems with parking. Trig just off road up a couple of steps. Surrounded by overgrown weeds and rosebay willowherb. I must come back and get a photo when this is in full bloom as it will probably look quite nice, in an overgrown sort of way!

I'm sure the veiw was great but it was raining and misty (see photo). I'm not an expert but the trig looked OK, with a recent coat of paint and no graffiti

Drove past it, then walked past it. Completly hidden by bushes. I just noticed it. I pulled the bushes back to take a photo. I suppose the bushes keep it safe from any passing charvers.

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