This trig has the last vestige of a splash of white paint. Spider intact. Its surface top appears uneven. Always worth the effort regardless of the weather. Turned out to be a lovely afternoon.

Our 2nd of two trigs today. Continuing our walk from Hungry Law we followed the perimeter of the forest park boundary NE to join the Pennine Way at nt777077. Heading south via Houx Hill we descended to the Cottonshope Road, over the burn then uphill towards Dour Hill. This trig is next to a fence. Our return route through the forest didn't happen. Bridleway is overgrown and impassable. A long walk ,partially via the road, ensued. The Forest View Inn is a smashing place for a well deserved real ale at the end of an epic walk.

Free parking next to the Oakenshaw Wildlife Reserve. Opted for this route due to horses in ROW route. Negotiating the field east from nature reserve proved problematic due to inquisitive young cattle. Relieved to seek the sanctuary of the plantation. Trig located south of woods about 10m into grazing field. Plinth exposed possibly due to cattle congregating. A roundabout return route skirting field boundaries to avoid cattle and horses.

Parked on minor road leading up to this trig point. The no access and cctv sign is very off putting. Walked uphill on track and quickly the trig comes into view along with a horse. Located on a mound and closed off with wire fencing I chose to take a long view photo of this pillar. Footpath sign is clearly visible but the nettles show no evidence of public regular access. An unremarkable trig.

The pillar is in need of a good coat of paint. Our first experience of continual rain prompted us to sack off further trigs and we chose to return via Beckermonds and the Dales Way. This turned out to be an unexpected surprise full of interesting limestone features which has enhanced my mark for interest. Green Field Beck was very low due to the unprecedented dry weather conditions we have experienced exposing long stretches of dry river beds.

The views at this location were fantastic. The trig is surrounded by very interesting lichen covered boulders presenting great photo opportunities especially WSW to Deadwater Fell. Our return walk via White Kielder Burn to Blakehope Nick was a 3hour epic. The bridleway was barely visible. Our first experience of footpath was as we entered the forest at nt683985.

However finding this trig beyond this point was a major accomplishment. Chuffed to bits. Especially as we relied on a good old map and compass. The wearing of shorts was a bad option.
