Detour on approaching Howgill to avoid the bull. Then missed the track and ended up ascending via the SW side of the beck, a wearying slog through heather and bracken up to the fence. Trig in reasonable condition on plinth between cairn and shelter. Plug missing. Showery views.

The original active stations were conical (Trimbles I think) located on the roof of the building. These have gone so I suspect that station FLA1 should be classed as 'Destroyed'. There are three dome-shaped receivers on top of a tall mast; presumably replacing FLA1 and FLA2 but with a new station name. Whilst resembling in appearance the Leicas commonly used by the OS for active stations, the logo seems to be different.

Tower open today (admission 2). Wide steps well lit; makes a change. From the top there are extensive views beyond Manchester to the south; Darwen Tower NW. Blackpool Tower visible according to the topograph but couldn't see it. Union Jack flying. Hadn't anticipated that the tower would be open so didn't have the coords of the rivet relative to the flagstaff (subsequently checked OSGB36; the rivet should be 1.3m S of the flagstaff). Found a rivet at centre of on the NW parapet which looked hopeful but then another on the SE ppt and two more on the SW ppt. So these may have been witness marks implying that the rivet was on the (resurfaced) floor. Didn't see it but maybe its still there.

Smaller than average, approx 1ft square, with a whitewashed rod marker under a shallow covering of grass. Nothing adjacent to measure from so left a mini cairn. Familiar hills nearby, trig stations including Cracoe, Great Whernside, Simons Seat, Beamsley Beacon, Rombalds Moor and Addingham High Moor. As CJO noted, the location doesn't have an obvious advantage over the top of Counter Hill maybe a slightly better sightline down into Addingham village but then a spot by the fence would have been easier to relocate.

Patrington FBM, often thought to be missing, is still in its original location at 22, Church Lane (once part of the garden of Canada House but now a modern house with a separate curtilage). When I called the front gates were open. I knocked at the door and the lady who answered said it was fine to take a look at the survey mark. A wooden fence panel is visible to the left from the gate and the FBM is directly behind this. The OS description which still holds is "S side Church Lane opp church 1.1m S wall 3.7m W outbuilding - no railings". The height tag is missing otherwise the FBM is in very good condition and both OS plaques are present. A rectangular plot of gravel, with brick surround, presumably covers the chamber. In 2008, Richard Short from the OS emailed "The Patrington FBM, as far as I know is still in the garden of 22, Church Lane. We last saw it in 1999. It is overgrown with Ivy and Laurel. (TA 3155 2249). The chamber is under some loose slabs." Its good to know that this marker has survived and is well looked after.

But Burringham was itself short-lived, recorded by OS as destroyed 11/59. Both blocks located on the old line of the B1450. M181 motorway not opened until 1978 (wiki) so not certain that the motorway construction was responsible for the blocks demise.

The OS sketch refers to two BRs (Brass Rivets presumably) on top of the wall on the N side of the wall. These have gone with the cap stones on the wall replaced by concrete. But the sketch also states that the block is 0.75 metres from the road edge and 0.55 metres from the base of the wall. Probing along a line parallel to the wall soon found the block to the RHS of the bush. Location at brow of hill, aligned with a seam in the road tarmac. Small bolt buried in soft soil, stones and roots - another broken trowel :( Why do the OS call this one a bolt rather than a block; the distinction in their terminology is unclear.

The OS sketch was obtained in order to locate this trig. It showed three reference points on nearby rock outcrops - had expected these to be cut marks or else rivets but although the outcrops were easy to locate there were no witness marks evident. The OS record also mentioned "metal sheeting covers block" and this proved relatively easy to find with only a shallow covering of peat. Counting E to W, the block is approx 11ft from the top of the 2nd outcrop and approx 6ft from the top of the 3rd. Site approached via track to W side of reservoir, gate with barbed wire on top then plod through heather. Nice views with several other trig sites visible including Simon's Seat, Thorpe Fell and Meugher.

For a destroyed block, this was a lot of bother. The right of way goes through a garden where the householder helpfully advised not to move if her dog saw me.

Straightforward access via track ESE from the road then NW following the field edge alongside the motorway. The grid ref corresponds to W side of gated farm bridge. An embankment raises the track to bridge level. The gate is damaged - beware trailing strands of barbed wire. Metal drain to each side of the gate. Drain surrounds examined carefully but nothing found. The metal is rusty in places with loose flakes. Various minor dents and scratches but nothing that suggests a trig mark. Also checked base of the metal parapet posts - smooth surface, no marks; possibly not original. Checked kerb stones for witness marks; also checked the nearby concrete surfaces although this would seem a less likely location. Noted drains/cover surround at base of embankment on N side; not checked as too far off GR. Took photos of all the possibilities and subsequently obtained the OS sketch. This shows the cut mark to have been on the SE corner of the drain cover at the NW side of the bridge. Nothing in the photo to suggest that it is still there; would guess that the relevant metal flake has detached.

The OS record has the original bolt replaced by a disc 10/85 and then the disc replaced in turn by another bolt 09/86. There are also centre and flagstaff marks in the station record. Bolt not investigated; vane on top of what appears to be a flagstaff. Logged as 'destroyed' with reference to the disc. Steady rain but cleared shortly afterwards. Would also have expected the water tower to the N to be used as a trigmark but it isn't listed.

Original visit 22 Mar 2014 inconclusive. Revisit after obtaining the trig station details from the National Archive. This shows the mark to have been on a square drain cover, on the S side of the road opposite to No 70, and adjacent to the kerb. There was a X cut at the SE corner of the frame. There is still a drain at this location. Cleared snow and ice from the cover. The metal surround appeared too narrow to have been used. The cover itself would seem unlikely although there was a moulded arrow at the SW corner to indicate the correct orientation. Checked all the corners; various dents and scratches in the metal but nothing resembling a trig mark.

Obtained the OS station record from the National Archive for this one. This includes a report dated Jan 1972 "Cinder and Rubble Platform gradually falling away (stable at present)". The sketch shows that the mark was located on this platform, 0.2 metres S from the top of the embankment and 1.37 metres from the E edge of the platform. The sketch also notes "Very poor wall supporting cinders". Theres also some interesting correspondence between the OS and the Railway authorities regarding the terms and conditions of access. Today's visit found that the top of the embankment is clear but the S side is now heavily overgrown. The E edge of the platform was identified but the rest has now fallen away.

Had previously assumed that the cutting was constructed as part of a colliery railway line and that the rivet was placed on an existing structure, such as the base of a signal post. But the OS sketch dated 4.4.88 shows that the mark was on the steps of a 'footbridge over NCB Opencast Access Rd'.
