Minor road to north permanently blocked with boulders by roundabout to NE. Plenty room to park on roundabout itself at NZ409466. Several crop fields to cross

Dropped Mrs Trig off at Dalton Park then went to bag this one. Not the prettiest of locations but still worth a visit for the views. As others, parked at roundabout, walked along the road to nowhere, along PROW, then followed the beaten path to the top. A little muddy in parts, but not too bad.

Parked at the roundabout to the road to nowhere. Followed field boundaries through oil seed rape, the summit area is rough scrubland with a quadbike track direct to summit. Spooked a barn owl who took flight. Reasonable views with the Dalton Park shopping centre prominant, was persuaded by the rest of the party to visit for refreshements.

HISTORY: Built as a possible primary substitute for PP142, Warden Law but never used as such. Pillar completed 15th December 1936 costing 6.15s.9d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NZ42/48 within the Middlesborough block during 1948. Refixed as same in 1984. Levelled for height in 1963. Last maintained by the OS, 29th April 1998. SITE VISIT: Parked in entrance of new road WSW from roundabout (NZ409465) which has apparently never been open to traffic. Followed field boundaries to trig. In unused overgrown plot. Pillar in good condition. Spider had tar plug, now broken open. Flush bracket faces 332 (NNW). Vented though SW sight hole. 360 open outlook.
