Route as below from radio mast along field edge. Views are OK, just nothing exceptional.

Parked next to mast. There were no keep out signs as previously reported. Short walk to trig point. Reasonable views.

Handy parking at mast, then easy access into trig field by climbing two conveniently placed gates.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS reading. SITE VISIT: Approached from SW. Parked by SW side of road beside comms mast at NU158042. Over gate opposite with the 'private keep out' notice and into adjacent field keeping to right of boundary fence to top. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces SE, ~144. Vented through SW sight hole. Outlook limited by nearby wooded clumps. Brazen as usual, climbed the gate with the 'private keep out' notice. Laughable and pathetic if it is there to intimidate.

Decided to swing by this one and see if it was doable in the dark as just a bit trespassy. Keep out private signs on the gate no one around so quick in and out. Didnt dare use flash as dog barking in the distance and car coming down the near-by road!

Easy trig to see from road and res Could not see keep out sign because gate was open Kept low profile through long grass but trig is farther than you think Escaped just as farmer passed by on tractor

Parked next to reservoir and walked along field boundary. Trig sits in soft mounds of grass. Plug intact with indented lettering.
