Virtually a drive-by. Easy short ascent from the road. There are that many rabbits and rabbit warrens and burrows immediately below the summit of the hill that the whole hill appears in imminent danger of collapse! Someone had placed a horseshoe in the hole where the plug should be, I decided as it had been a lucky day of bagging TPs with great views it would be tempting fate to remove it.

Nice easy walk up to this one after coming over the ranges from Holystone. The wind had dropped by the time we got to this one with nice golden colours on the grass from the setting sun.

Almost a roadside. Well trodden path up the slope. Good view.

Gate off the A696 closed but no 'keep out' signs so decided to carry on. Road not too bad and parked close to the pillar. Moorland views and lots of skittish sheep.

Easy bag from the unclassified road, trig kept company by some small concrete trig like object and the army red flag. Frightened a deer on the way to the trig. As others have said beautiful all round views but not the best of the day!

On explorer map as open access land, and no signs on road so presume flagpole refers to nearby firing range and not immediate area. Plug missing

Missing its plug. The red flags were flying, so I bagged this one as quickly as possible, so as not to get shot!

Trig point is on the verge of the danger area and as the red flag was flying I let Ian risk arrest by going there. On the way back from the point the flag went down - spooooookyyyyyyyyyy!
