Log #94. 256m. Bagged with a short detour from doing a circular walk along the Abbey Trail from the hamlet of Clifton. Trig located 67m trespass from the road thru a blue gate. Quarry has barbed fence all round, so closest I got was about 6m from trig. Excellent views Otley, Menston, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Rombalds Moor above Ilkley. Opened rucksack to get my camera out and discovered I had forgotten it. Will have to revisit.

Drove north out of Otley and stopped in car park of the interestingly-named Spite pub to check map. Parked out of way at junction with Dob Park Road and walked up to disused quarry. Good views all round.

The trig is above some old workings, found next to the wall. Had to climb over a wall adjacent to a gate to gian access to the field. The grass was knee high and damp. The cloud was down giving no views

Hey Bergfuehrer - there are two blue gates! Use the one nearest Otley - it was tied up with blue string. Pleasant setting at edge of small disused quarry. Trig has plastic plug. A slight trespass, but too near the roadside to cause an adrenaline rush.
