After reading recent logs, it seemed a good time to visit this one, and so it proved. We drove up Stonepit Lane, past Cliffe House Farm and then surprisingly all the way up the bridlepath to the caravan park. The gate was open and there were very few folk about so we drove straight to the caravan. Number A11A and the surrounding vans are all closed and emptied for the winter now, so a quick nip round the trellis garden divider to visit the pillar was no problem at all. As others have said, the trig is in fine condition but has been adopted by the caravan owners and converted into a lighthouse feature; I couldn't therefore comment on the spider/cap. The flush bracket has been painted white when the pillar was done. An interesting pillar then, a good one to visit and very easy at this time of year. We carried on along the Cleveland Way to watch some seals on Gristhorpe Sands.

Bagged during overnight stay in Scarborough. Parked at surf school in Cayton Bay and walked up the coastal path. 3.8mile return walk. Clear views and seals in the water at bottom of cliffs. Full points for quirkiness. Nobody in at the caravan so nipped around the fence, although the missus refused to 'trespass' so stayed on the other side. Itchy.

This is a strange one! It is located within the caravan site and seems to have been claimed by a lucky resident as a mini-lighthouse. A quick detour from the coastal path following the Cleveland Way. I approached from the south side and battled through the vegetation, but probably didn't need to!

(1645) The Christmas period, so not a surprise to find the camp site largely deserted. Maintenance work ongoing, and that was the only real sign of activity. Walked up the RoW and turned left at the gate. No-one about here either. Pillar very visible from outside the property. A quirky one this - painted bright white and modelled as a lighthouse. Well looked after it seems. Pillar history: Built on the 15th of March 1951, at a cost of £10 9s 6d. Last maintained by the OS in September of 2000.

Quick detour whilst on a visit to Scarborough Fair (which is a wonderful collection of old mechanical organs, vintage vehicles and fairground rides, plus a tea dance accompanied by Wurlitzer organ underway). Leave the site by the NE corner and walk E along the Cleveland Way, very easy, with excellent views back to Scarborough. The most extraordinary trig I think I've visited, now with a model LNER loco adjacent! Trig is bright white, top inaccessible, but otherwise vgc in so far as it is possible to tell!

Entered the wrong camp site at first. The trig is in the top private site, best to go straight up the road from the main road along the ROW. No one home but owners of next door out and about and said it would be no problem to visit the trig.

Passed this location whilst out walking a section of the Cleveland Way with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA. Followed the directions of previous visitors and found the pillar at the rear of caravan A11A. As others have said the pillar has been turned into a bird table by the caravan occupiers. At least it is still there and in good condition. The bird table is removable and reveals an original plug now the home of a woodlice colony. From the pillar the views are non-existent unless you love caravans. However, once out of the site and back onto the cliffs the views are second to none.

Bit of a beggar to find, hidden between fence & caravan - I found it after roaming around for a good half hour (it's NOT in the Blue Dolphin complex). If you come along the coastal path from Scarborough, where the footpath meets the clifftop edge caravans at Gristhorpe turn right up a road a few yards then at a crossroads turn right into the (private) static caravan park. The trig is approx 100 yards up the road on the left at the back of the caravan that is adjacent a small mound.
