Easy enough walk to this Vanessa pillar. Take the forest track all the way to the end, do not be tempted to turn off until you see the trigpoint sign. Then a short section of boggy, muddy ground following a firebreak to the trig. Charlie's first outing in the carrier due to his forced rest after a knee operation.

Got this on second attempt after tried to be ambitious initially and navigated to base of hill inaccessible due to heavy forest. Took the forest walk the next day and at end of forest road, a helpful sign directed me to the trig. very peaceful with all round view.

Cylindrical trig, metal cap deep letters, vgc. Grassy summit amidst spruce & heather, OK view. Rides marked on 1:25k lead to trig.

The first trig I have visited where the route to the trig has a signpost!

The Trig
The sign The landowner has left a break in the forest and put up this sign for the occasional visitor. Nice to feel welcome!
