8th of 13 trigs bagged along Hadrian's Wall hike. Walked down from the Wall path to The Sill in Once Brewed, then follow sign to Vindolanda. Go to the end of the road up a steep hill past Vindolanda, turn left and follow road uphill to just before crossroads at Limekiln. A style to your right and a footpath straight up to the trig. It's about 2.8 miles from the Wall path. Beautiful vista. You can see Vindolanda, the Wall path over the crags, Sycamore Gap, the Penninines and more. Plug intact.

Up from the sculptural limekiln then across to the Roman fort, the trigs on the wall picked out by stormy sun and the North Pennine lying long in the distance, beautiful spot.

Had planned to do this as part of a longer 3 Trig circular, but having not bagged a new TP in a month and having to go for an appointment in Hexham this seemed a suitable diversion. It was also the first TP for the newest member of our family, 'Watson', a 4 month old Italian Spinoni. I was expecting great views N back to the wall, however was not expecting such fantastic views S over Tynedale. For a relatively low hill, this TP has much to commend it!

A very enjoyable hop up from the road after visiting Vindolanda in the heart of Wall Country. Lots of Roman vibes around here and a little bit further on at Long Stone, where there was a Roman Signal Station. From up here you get a great aerial perspective of the ancient settlement.

Parked at the nearby limekiln and nipped up from the road. Very accessible. Fantastic views all round from Trig. An excellent spot but very breezy and damp today. Did this after a day walking along the Wall. Great views to Hadrians Wall, Cold Fell and lots of Northumberland! Did this after noticing it on the map after a couple of pints and a great bread and butter pudding in The Twice Brewed Inn.
