Staying with a friend who is one of the 5 residents in nearby Little Bavington, so dropped by this trig on the way there. Sits on a nice craggy escarpment with wide-ranging views and surrounded by sheep!

Almost a roadside. Bitter east wind meant a short visit.

Fabulous and extensive views in a lovely spot on a glorious day. Would have scored this higher if only there was slightly more 'challenge' to finding this one! Large piles of white stone piled up on the other side of the road suggesting something ominiously like an imminent construction of something here? Please, surely not!

A great bike ride on tarmac single roads through cattle grazing land. The trig looks across low undulating farming land.

The roads up to this trig are narrow but the area is quiet so no problems, other than avoiding sheep & lambs sleeping in the center of the road. No gates but plenty of cattle grids. As pointed out by earlier comments its almost a roadside trig.

Nice location perched on top of a crag. A clear day so could see for miles in all directions. Almost a roadsider with easy parking to the east.

This is almost a drive by. Near to Great Bevington where clear remains of a deserted medieval village (or DMV in archaeologist speak)can be seen at the east end. Expansive views over the west to cross fell and the sea at east. May have inflated the score for this one as England had just took the last wicket and were crowned world number ones!!!! How long will that last?...I don't care I've suffered the ups and downs of being an England fan all my life, going to savour this, even if it is fleating.

Taken in with Whitehills on 40 mile ride from Morpeth. Lovely day and good ride across open pastures from Kirkwhelpington. It would make a lovely sunset photo. Instead I got "your memory card is full" and after I deleted a few old pics, "please change the battery". Need to go back !
