Easy walk up through a lush grassy field to find the pillar parked within its thorny hedge; a brown plastic replacement cap in place, and all sight-holes open.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Revisit. HISTORY: Pillar completed 30th August 1953 costing 18.2s.3d. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NX99/T8 in the Dumfries secondary block during 1954. Flush bracket S7716 was levelled for height to Class 1 precision, tertiary standards also in 1954. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1988. SITE VISIT: No problems parking, used gateway of TARFF building under construction. Pillar in good condition. Spider plugged with smooth brown plaster. All four sight holes open, innards blocked with debris.

First visit. To record FB number. Night time visit. Staying in Dumfries on business. No camera with me. I shall return here in 16 years time to take photographs. By that time the hand held GPS receiver should be a household item.
