Happy to report pillar has been 'consolidated'. Work has been completed to repair plinth and pillar. Has also had a fresh coat of white paint. Damage to the top remains with the ends of all 3 spider arms exposed. Top cap missing, asphalt plug replacement; LHD side sight hole open.Light cloud down on the hill so views only to surrounding peat hags.

Bagged after Hedgehope Hill. Low cloud so no view. The plinth has a large crack near the base and a sign indicates that remedial work to stabilise it will soon take place. There looked to be enough bags of cement at the site for a complete rebuild!

Last trig of the Pennine Way (18th I think). So windy for the last half mile to the top that I could hardly stand up. Due to the flat moorland summit there are better views on many of the other Cheviot hills but I've been wanting to do this one for some while. According to a local the trig was at ground level once but had to be raised as the ground level had sunk. Not sure if this is true. Flagstones were very welcome.

Pennine Way Day 2 of 17. Set off carrying too much beer so wild camped outside Auchope hut and drank it all. Leaving 23 miles to walk to Byrness today, so credit to us for bagging the Cheviot Summit - many others leave it out - which I don't understand. Trig is perched on a plinth and is slightly damaged. Views slightly restricted by the summit massif, however I rate them and for me its worth the effort, especially as this becomes my highest trig bag for now at least.

from 952223 an easy enough ascent peaty in places - glad to see the flagstones - the alternative would have required a snorkel. trig is quite possibly the tallest i've ever seen - spider must be 10ft above ground level. sheltered from a 5min squall - the only rain i had all day. continued over Cairn hill to county top and then back to Cairn hill. drop down to col fine but from there over Comb Fell was pretty rough. lots of peat hags. finished off on Hedgehope - a far better viewpoint that Cheviot

Second of the day from Hedgehope Hill on the way to Cold Law. A long way via some spectacular peat hags! Not as wet underfoot as we'd imagined but we were thankful for the paved section across the summit. No views to speak of from the top and the trig as other have said is in a sad state.

Second visit. For GPS reading and photographs. SITE VISIT: The summit is very flat and is one big peat bog for some considerable distance. A flagstone path across this summit has been meticulously laid. The probable reason for the elevation of this pillar is to permit line of sight with neighbouring pillars. Pillar cracked through at FB height. This crack is gradually expanding with weathering. Deteriorating. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces ENE, ~109. Full 360 open panoramic skyline with limited views due to the expanse of this flat top, and its height above everything else for miles around.

Poor weather today, ascended by following the Harthope Valley to its head and climbing to Scotsmans Cairn. The valley was very wet underfoot with numerous landslips. Cloud down but only drizzle. Suprised to see a digger on Cairn Hill. They were extending the paving stones to the signpost - at last!No views.

The positive bits - great weather, v.light breeze & mild. Got sight of the trig point when I thought I was only half way up and approaching the summit of Scald hill. The negatives - still hurting a lot after my exploits of TP2229 earlier in the week & the walk around to Hangstone Hill from here was pretty miserable due to the bogs.

It must be 20 years since I last came up here, with a party from the NMC, and I am not going to go through my diary to back-write entries dating from 1971. It was a delight to visit the summit in bright sunshine with my son before a thick wet mist drove in from the W and we took to our heels. Bonny caps of mist on Hedgehope and hills toward the Ingram valley. The score is for the retrospect of Holy Island and the Farnes from the stile at the beginning of the flagstone track. I noticed frozen MTB tracks in the peat - but it wasn't the Gansos', folks !

Sunny at the top, walked back down to the car and it started to pour down.I had driven here, 25 miles from campsite as swmbo and kids bit not want to come, so did not ride to the start of the walk on the bike else would have been out all day.

A glorious walk today with hardly a cloud in the sky. You can see most of Northumberland today - a really lovely day out.

Lovely hill, and plenty of people out today enjoying it. Easily the most challenging walk I've done so far with David on my back (13km, 600m height gain), so the trigpoint was a welcome sight indeed! The trigpoint has seen better days, though the major cracks in the concrete have been repaired somewhat.

they may have stone flagged the path but there are strategic ones missing ready to drop you in a peat slurry-not Britain's best summit but that saw Northumberland conquered. Trig is built on a pedestal to get sightlines over the flat top

Wonderful winter conditions. Up from Langleeford, then round to Hedgehope Hill. No problems with frozen bogs.

Finally crossed the sea of peat to the pillar on top of its strange tower. Well its one answer to the visibility problem on a vast plateau. Walk off tamed by paving slabs.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 10th June 1936 costing 49.16s.8d. Computed as primary triangulation station PP308 within Figure 3 of the OSGB36 Primary network during 1937. Flush bracket levelled for height in 1958. Last maintained by the OS in August 1993. SITE VISIT: Trig pillar cracking around base where previous repairs have been made. Spider no longer retained an OS centre plug. Foundations of trig pillar are now well above present ground level but are protected by surrounding breize blocks. The summit is very flat and is one big peat bog for some considerable distance. A flagstone path across this summit has been meticulously laid. The probable reason for the elevation of this pillar is to permit line of sight with neighbouring pillars. Nearest public transport is at Wooler, but it is possible to do this in the time between first bus out (from Berwick Upon Tweed) and last bus back.

At last the big one! Northumberland county top and highest trig in England outside Cumbria. Trig itself is 3m above the eroded peat. Can highly recommend the ascent from Cocklawfoot. Much better than that from College valley.

Enjoyable walk from Halterburn along Pennine Way until the last 10 yards where the pillar is surrounded by a deep peaty morass.

On a breezy day with light cloud the end of the Pennine Way is in range. Climbed up on to the trig which is elevated well above ground level presumably by erosion. At least with all the recent dry weather the peat was not the wet morass it can be.

score 8 for effrontery! Surrounded by 100 yards of sludge! Up to my knees and couldn't move - got out by crawling to a firmer patch. Column on a 6' stone block itself raised from surrounding desolation. Nothing to see (mist). No other PW walkers attempted the journey!
