how do you spend a drizzly early morning in north west Leeds after dropping off a friend at Leeds Bradford airport? With green wellies and a big yellow brolly, on a walk to a trig and a tump and chatting to fearty cows who gathered and followed me back up the field about ten twelve feet behind me but the moment I turn round to chat to them and offer them the back of my hand to sniff, leap back three feet because I'm such a scary ogre! fading green paint on upper half of pillar

Walked up to this one from Horsforth railway station, went onto bag the Trig at Plane Tree Hill before returning to Horsforth in a 6 mile circular walk. You can follow a detailed write up of this walk on my blog by typeing Fell Finder into Google and looking for the walk under Leeds and district walks, thanks.

Walked over from Plane Tree Hill trig through muddy cow field. Although the map does not show a path going to this prominent trig, there is one so access is easy. Trig painted white and looking good, pity I never saw the green livery, although you can still see signs of it's previous green paint. Views are great all around.

Re-visited this one because we like the view (pity about the distant haze) and for the benefit of Boris the border terrier, who enjoyed the walk. The pillar has changed from green to white since our previous visit. This time we continued into the wood and returned via the sports ground and Billing View. A good round walk for a Good Friday !

Parked in the car park at the Jubilee Hall, Rawdon and took the public footpath almost opposite. Trig comes into view as soon as open country is reached. 670 metres walk from car park to pillar. Slight damage to pillar. Great views all round. Locality is a marked contrast to Plane Tree Hill which is less than 1 km away.

Also available in white !
First sight of the pillar
Outstanding in its field !

Easy access. I came up the path from St Peters' School across playing field. Then along right of way footpath to south-west corner of field in which the pillar is situated. Through ungated gateway and up to pillar on'locals' path. Trig pillar visible from road. Being Sunday I used school car park - classing myself as a visitor! At sometime in the past has been painted green which is now peeling. Excellent views from this elevated vantage point. Totally different to the nearby Plane Tree Hill pillar.

Located between two public footpaths NE of Rawdon. Trig is visible from afar making its position easy to spot. Quite a remote feel for one so close to suburbia. Would have given it a 7 but I liked the the traces of bright green paint. It must have looked stunning a few years ago.

View S over Rawdon and the Aire Valley.
