Visited with P61 last of a easy 13 trig day,we walked up through woods on coms track to the west.On reaching mast's security fence there is a short path south to a wooden fence at corner of woods.After which just follow field boundary hedges keeping them on your left around to the SE corner to the pillar.

This trig is located still within the field of two masts. However relocated to corner of field. Speaking with the farmer I discovered this trig point was moved about 20yrs ago as it was in the way of ploughing. Return walk to west edge of Chopwell Woods provided a magnificent evening sunset.

Corner of field, leaning slightly but perhaps fortunate to have survived. Plug intact. Approached via footpath to SW then a short detour up the field edge.

1 top corner& 1 top edge chipped - smallish chunk of conc missing at 3/4 height on 1 face - pillar tilted a few degrees - if not classified as moved, would have classified as slightly damaged. Crossed over a (literally) crappy field, from masts - pillar is near to a depressing wood waste/rubbish tip.

Had been walking since the middle of the day from Newcastle Central train station. Starting to feel the cold a bit by now.

Seems cosy enough in its new little corner

Met two lads in a landrover and asked where trig was. They gave me directions and also volunteered info it had been shifted from middle of field to edge (and obviously knew by whom). Moved about 250 ft South.
