Met a gamekeeper (seems a common occurrence on these moors) who was interested in how we had managed to get on to the access land, but was friendly and agreed it was a grand day to head up Mark Hill. Carried on to Meugher (a 2.5hr slog due to snow, with sogginess hidden beneath, and peat hags). Saw a female hen-harrier hunting on the moors. Back to the car down the track from Meugher, crossing the beck at the water-supply dam near where the track leaves access land, then back on to the High Blayshaw footpath.

Walked up from the south, from Peart lane, via the track leading past the small wood. There is a large (14m diameter) low summit cairn, part of which has been remodelled into a shelter. The cairn is probably prehistoric (Bronze Age). There is a hollow in the centre of the cairn: it's not clear if this was the source of the stones for the shelter, or if the centre of the cairn has been dug out in the search for artefacts, or if it's an original feature.

Followed the forest track E, then up and W, before freestyling up through the forest and then W on wet tussocky moorland to the trig. Not a sensible route as the forest roads and footpaths don't seem the same as on our 2005 OS 1:25000 map and with no phone signal couldn't access an updated version. Wind-blown trees make it slow going through the forest. Returned by heading due S through the forest to the footpath/track junction, then SE through newly-felled forest to the road 200m W of Low Green Field. Much quicker, but still a grind. Best bit of the circuit was the hundreds of marsh orchids by the forest track on the way up.

Parked at Ettleton cemetery and walked up the hillside through a network of earth banks, presumably the remains of a medieval (and probably partly earlier) field system.

Used what was left of the short day after the trek to Carlin Tooth to visit this trig. Parked by road and used same route as others. Left track and launched into plantation at right-hand edge of a small gravel quarry: there were a few windfalls to get round, but nothing difficult. The last few hundred metres across moorland to the trig are horrible: large soft wet mossy tussocks; like walking across a pile of huge wet sponges. The other end of the track, where it rejoins the road, was blocked by logging operations with a lot of forestry workers in action: not what you expect to see on New Years Day in Scotland!

We used the minimalist bridleway which petered out soon after passing the Girdle Stone, then climbed out of White Kielder Burn valley along the side of the plantation to reach the trig. Rough going most of the way with a lot of wet tussocky heather. For the return trip we did the ridge walk round to White Crags trig: turned out to be quicker and less knackering despite the boggy bits, hags and peat gullies to cross.

A bright cold winter's day so ideal for Kielder trigging. Parked by Stelshaw Lodge (517816) and walked up the tracks through Kershaw Forest to reach the track-end at 555861. Then 50m straight on before turning up through felled forest with sparse regrowth to reach open moorland and head for the trig. It's best to keep high to avoid the worst of the peat-haggs, but even so it's slow difficult going across rotting forestry brash, bog, hagg and tussocky moor. Once again gets an 8 for the sheer difficulty of getting there (8km walk taking 2h15m). Is this the remotest trig in mainland England (i.e. the furthest from a public road)?

Approached from the west, parking on verge at NY559784 (south of The Flatt). Walked up forest track (ignoring the private signs) then by compass bearing through the last bit of forest from bend in track. Carried on to Sighty Crag. Made return down Access Land back to car, there's a quad bike track a lot of the way. Clear still day with views across to a snowy Cross Fell and northern Lakes fells. Whole round trip only took 4hrs: mostly tussocky moorland and by keeping to the higher ground you can usually avoid the mires.

Walked a the 15km round tripvia the forest track network from the east. Lovely bright crisp winter day. Didn't see a soul. Walked round compound and didn't see any gaps in the chunky security fencing, but trig is clearly visible so just photographed it. High enough to have good views across endless forest plantations to a snow-covered Cross Fell and northern peaks of The Lakes. Stopped on drive back down minor road at Dally Castle - well worth a look.

After the bonus of the first trig of the day this was back to the trog along the forest drives, unfortunately gates were locked at the very beginning, so we parked at Harelaw and followed the tracks not the bridle or foot paths. Passed one guy working in the forest on the whole 13 km walk, but at the trig we met a guy, horse and dog, guy was out for a ride in full Western riding kit. Was so busy talking to the bloke I didnt take a pic. Called at the bothy at The Green, by the visitor book it's well used. Gets a 6 because of the horse!

A bit of a bonus this one as we managed to drive all the way bar the final 500m. Forest gates mostly open and where they weren't we managed to detour round. Typical forest trig, not a lot of views unless you are into conifers. Gave the pillar a big hug as it's very lonely..... only 3 previous visits. Remember trigs are not just for Christmas (or Easter for that matter) so why doesn't everyone go and visit a lonely trig occasionally, instead of just logging the likes of Snowdon and Hellvelyn.

Parked on the road to the NE and walked down the edge of the rough pasture (with rampant rhodies and birch) to the trig, hiding behind a wall. The land is access land (on our map and I've just rechecked on the internet) so we ignored the Keep Out signs. But that and the sound of shotgun fire from three different directions in the late afternoon gloom made for an uncomfortable experience.

Used the Peregrinus approach from the NNW, and had no problems reaching the trig up the tussocky firebreak which is showing no signs of becoming overgrown. The dull trek along forest tracks from Blakehopeburnheugh was enlivened by forestry operations which were in action despite being late December and had turned a section of track into a deep swamp. The trig is in a clear area on the hilltop, feeling very lonely. Even by Northumberland standards, 3 visits in the last 12 years aren't many!

As with previous triggers, we parked at Gibshiel and walked in on the right-of-way which crosses the pasture below the farmhouse, crosses a bridge, then skirts the south edge of the forest for a short distance. Then a footpath sign sends you diagonally into the trees. We didn't see any further footpath signs (or evidence any humans had been here before), but just carried along between the lines of mature trees, eventually crossing an old wall and fence to reach an area of young trees. From there straight ahead, with small trees to the right and slightly older trees on the left, joining a track for the last stretch to the crest of the ridge. From the crest it's a short off-piste walk through sparse forest regrowth along the ridge to the trig, which is in an open area (so no problem to find). There are wide views to the south. The map suggests that reaching the trig could be a grim struggle through featureless forest, but in fact it turned out to be a pleasant 45mins walk with no navigation challenges. Like a lot of the Kielder forest trigs it's had few visits, in fact it's only been visited on two days previously!

As Jimmy notes, the summit cairn looks like the remains of a huge (18m diameter) prehistoric cairn rebuilt into a shelter and small cairns. One of the modern cairns contains a stone engraved "IN MEMORY JOHN GEORGE BRAMLEY 4-2-1980 / 19-2-2010 23 REG SOLDIER R.E.". The stone is easily found as it's limestone, and is much greyer than the other stones. The sunlight was clear and low, picking out the ancient Coquetdale landscape well, including the prehistoric cairns and trig on Thirl Moor across the far side of the military range.

Access still tricky as although there's a stile by the parking place, you have to scale a vertical brambley bank to reach it and get into the access land. The hill is chewed up by mining activity and it's difficult to tell which of the earthworks is prehistoric and which from mining. The trig itself is on a heap that looks like the spoil heap from a bell-pit rather than a prehistoric tumulus.

Walked across from Larriston Fells trig. It looked as though it could be a difficult trek through pathless bog and forest. Luckily we picked up a newish mountain bike track (a lot of it boardwalk) around 578921 on the Scottish border: this took us (in a slightly roundabout way) to within 300m of the pillar. The final sprint is wet and tussocky moorland. Like a lot of the trigs in the Kielder area, this doesn't get much attention (we were only the second visit in the last 4.5 years.

Spent the morning doing an RSPB bird survey of waders at a nearby farm, then walked from the small parking area at the end of the road on the north side of Balderhead reservoir. Took the track round the top end of the reservoir then off-piste across the moor (which wasn't too boggy by North Pennine standards). The summit is a magical place, rising above a vast remote moorland. There is a stone pillar near the trig, on top of a low mound which looks like the remains of a Bronze Age kerbed barrow (it's not recorded on the Historic Environment Record, but I found a mention of it by Tim Laurie on the SWAAG database).

The two best panels of prehistoric rock art (among the finest in Britain and probably carved around 1500BC ) are on a rock outcrop south of the trig at NU 07568 29053 and on the floor of an overhanging rock shelter NE of the trig at NU 07464 29799. Both have multiple cup-and-ring carvings, patterns of cup-marks, and grooves. See the English Rock Art website: http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/era/, search for "chatton 1a" and "ketley crag rock shelter". As a bonus there is a small Iron Age hillfort (dating from around 200BC) just NW of the trig with impressive defensive banks and traces of round-houses still visible inside it.

Walked in via forest track from the east. The first part, according to large notices, was closed to the public for logging operations until Feb 2014, but no-one around on a gloomy Sunday afternoon so nipped in. Tracks made for easy walking so round trip to the trig was only about 1h40. A lot of the forest has been felled including around the trig, so it was easy to find, though meant you were within sight of military buildings: hence didn't linger. Oddly there are no fences or signs to indicate that the trig is 100m inside the military range. It's good to know that there are still places in England so obscure and remote that even trig-baggers rarely pass by. With only 3 previous visits over 9 years, this must be one of the least visited English pillars.

Superb views on a sunny, clear, cold day.. snow on the lakeland fells and Cross Fell peaks. The summit looks like a prehistoric cairn... the peat level has built up around it, but not on it (as heather can't grow on rock), so it is now in a bowl. These summit cairns are usually assumed to be neolithic, around 3000BC, but there's not enough evidence to be definite. Clearly it was built before the peat formed about 2000yr ago.

Lots of grouse about but no moorland birds except 3 lone curlews circling above towards the end of the day....scouts probably...reporting back to the large flocks feeding on the lower unfrozen pasture! There is a small stone built building at the trig and currick which someone has white doves in...it's fox proof and has a route out to the open world...odd place for a dovecot!

Walked up the Pennine way from Garrigill then headed off on a quad bike track next to a line of grouse butts just before a gill. This track soon divides and passes through a fence, use the right hand (metal) gate , don't stay on the main track through the wood gate. Follow the quad bike tracks and grouse feeders along the top and straight to the trig. Lovely day, cold but not a lot of wind, odd flurry of snow and well-frozen under foot so DRY feet....long time since I've had them on a trig point trip. Great views of Cross Fell.

Stunning views of the Breamish Valley, Hedgehope and Cheviot, although its summit remained in dark cloud all day...sulking! Dropped down the fence line to Salter's Road and then back to Ewarty Shank and the car. Great day not a speck of precipitation and fantastic views across Northumberland. The summit looks like a large Neolithic/Bronze Age barrow, similar to those on other Northumberland Hills, but with the stones above the lowest layers rearranged to give a cairn, a shelter, and trig foundations... however I can't find anything on the internet to confirm this.

Again this one could be a not found more than a possibly missing. Parked at the point where the moor road splits into two and went almost due west to the ridge top. Abit of a circuitous route to avoid peat hags and wet grains. GPS puts the bolt about a meter south from the large cairn/pillar at the northern end of the common. Again bedrock is hard to find...we dug around but only found loose rock...so its a pick and shovel job again...or may be a dismantle the pillar which would be a shame as its far more impressive than a OS bolt....in my humble opinion! Fantastic views into Swaledale and an interesting drive down the high 'road' to Satron. Its got many gates which my partner in crime and passenger was not impressed by.

My guess is the the bolt is on bedrock under the road...so if anyone wants a challenge its may be a pick job!...Access was from the RoW at the quarry entrance and then about 400m of trespass along the track past the kick ass 'no public access' signs!

Took advantage of a non-firing weekend on the Otterburn ranges. Parked on the saddle at the highest point on the miliary road. Wet walk across to the trig and its impressive adjoining bronze age cairns. Vast expansive views, although low cloud and rain limited the distance until later in the day. Met a guy on our way back to the car who was collecting Deweys...'it's all about lists' he said as we swapped OCD stories! Went on to have a good look around the Chew Green Roman fort and the adjoining deserted medieval village.

On to this one from Grey's Pike. Basically picked up the forest fence and then straight to the trig from the end point. Forest up to the sheep fold has been cleared so its easier walking to climb the fence and walk on the felled area, other wise its the knee high heather, bog and moss scenario...with some well hidden ditches to trap the unsuspecting trigger. Trig as other have said next to a large cairn, and some wonderful block paving which was obviously military in the past. Some sign saying beware of non-ironising radiation...whatever that is...from the trig we took a direct line to bring us down between little black and black cleugh, from there it was a trudge on the south side of the burn to the foot bridge then up to the forest drive and back to the car...knackering!

They were supposed to be doing the Pennine way towards Bellingham but were at least 15-20 km off piste! They only had the map with the sections of the pennine way on so we spent some time convincing them they were not actually on any of their map...advised them to go to visitor centre at kielder and ask about bus!...Anyway the trek to the trig was via none existant fire breaks in the forest...alot of the area has been felled and replanted and the fire breaks on the map don't seem to exist anymore. Not so bad if you are short of leg as I am, but a bit more trouble some for my partner in crime who is a 6 footer. Once out on the summit it was an easy trudge to the trig....foolishy decided to go for Monkside.

Views to the East of Bewick hills which will be visited when we're back in this area as they have a couple of great hill forts and cup and ring marked stones.

What a gem...deceptively long way from the layby on the A6 but well worth it. We basically followed the fence line and cut a couple of corners off (ish). The views today were stunning, all the way down to the power station at Heysham, the Howgills, Cross Fell and the SE lake land fells. The snow was much deeper here than Seat Robert and the trig was a little difficult to find!. Had noted GPS position on map from previous logs and it wasn't there! So we did the old fashioned pacing with the help of mickandshanes information. Anyway it was very enjoyable 'digging' in the snow and as a bonus we saw 3 Red deer. The logged grid reference is correct.

Parked at Rochester planning to use the footbridge over the river there and then footpath to Woolaw. However footbridge no longer there so the footpath goes from nowhere to nowhere now. Instead used the farm track over the river just W of Woolaw (weren't challenged but not a PROW), then straight up the access land to the trig. Passed what is marked on the map as "settlement" and looks like a remarkably preserved prehistoric settlement. There are 4 roundhouses, the largest 7m diameter, with the bases of the walls and the doorways intact. The houses are surrounded by a substantial wall, with an attached stock enclosure and field boundary banks. Will research to see what's known about it. Trig itself has the usual huge Northumberland views. Later edit: here's full details of the Woolaw settlement, confirms it dates to Iron Age (200BC) http://www.northumberlandnationalpark.org.uk/understanding/historyarchaeology/historicvillageatlas/rochesterintroduction/rochesterhistory/rochesterromanosettlements

Quicker & drier descent through the barium mine debris to reach the track lower down (keeping far enough to the right to avoid the Melmerby Scar limestone cliffs).

This is now almost a drive by trig with the track extending into the danger zone of Warcop range to within approximately 300m.
