C2C#26: why plod AW's original route across Greystones bog when you can divert to this near perfect pillar?! Stunning views over RHB with endless wall to wall blue sky and even bluer sea, rearwards to the moors and our route over the past few days, and a trig in excellent condition - metal cap, shallow letters, and as built except for the affixation of a small memorial plaque and a tiny puncture to the W s/hole. A great end to a great walk - 214 miles, 26 trigs, 17 days of which only one was wet. How lucky is that?

Visible and easily accessible being at the side of a track on Open Access land. Was passing nearby with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - so the opportunity to divert was just too good not to miss. Lovely location for a pillar over looking Robin Hoods Bay made all the better being in sunshine and surrounded by purple heather. Also bagged the associated cache - a nice two for one visit.

After spending the night at Robin Hoodís Bay, the second day of my expedition started high up (relatively speaking) on the North Yorkshire Moors at Brow Top. Plenty of parking space just off the road and an easy walk to the pillar. Traces of white in the spider grooves and on the flush bracket were subtle clues to the more observant trig hunter that this pillar had at one time probably been submerged in a bath of white paint. Fortunately, 99.9% of it had been weathered away, leaving this monument to the skill of the trig builder in all itís naked glory. Itís complete, all the metalwork is in place and itís in very good condition. Long may it remain so. This pillar also carries a commemorative plaque to one Jim Rushworth who was, apparently, a loving husband, father and grandad. HmmmÖ wonder is anyone will nail a plate to High Neb when I pop me clogs. This pillar is, as itís name suggests, on top of a brow in the middle of a heather covered moor, so the views are pretty much the same which ever direction you look in. The view east over the bay is probably the best.
