Log #56. (143m). Sherwood Forest green! WOW! First visit 02-01-10. Bagged this while doing a 7.5km walk from Roundhay to Shadwell, via Woodhouse & Birkby Grange Farms. Revisit today for photos. Did the same walk in reverse. Good views from this trig, even though murky visibility.

Nice to see that someone appears to be looking after this trig. Not too sure I like the shade of green but at least someone has cared enough to paint it. Pity there was farm debris piled up next to it though. Gorgeous views though and I wish I could afford to buy one of the nearby houses.

This trig has been painted green however there was a lot of farm rubbish stacked up against it but it has some very nice views and the small hamlet of large houses.

Parked in Carr Lane and walked up road, which is also a public footpath, towards Birkby Grange - a very desirable location to live in I should imagine. A slight deviation from the footpath led me to the trig, which has been painted green.

Hard to believe I got a little lost getting to this trig given that the footpaths are so clearly marked in the area. I ended up walking though the group of sympathetically converted farmhouses at the top of this hill then through a paddock to get to the trig.
