Thought this was a spelling mistake and that I was going to visit Batey Canteen. Very disappointed there was no hot food available.

Easy roadside bag. Great name for the trig, much nicer than 'Rubbingstob Hill'.

This is an easy roadside trig but the road is a gated road and is more suited to tractor and trailer than family saloon.

It helped having Connor to open the gates as i drove to the trig with Marie and Hayden.

Great location. However I would recommend taking a wife or girlfriend (or partner) along to open the gates!

Built ontop of an old wall/dyke field boundary. even though only 10m from the road it was a very boggy journey. RAF Rescue helicopter passed overhead.

Drove up the gated road from the east, and carried on to the nearby bolt. Views right down to a snow-covered Cross Fell.

The gates on the road are a bit of a pita - a passenger is useful! When you get there its an easy roadsider. Good views in all directions.

Walked across the fields from Birtley. Bit of a damp dreary day, but still some views. An easy one to drive to if your that way inclined.
