We took the route along a narrow steep track before hitting a road that was unsuitable for motor vehicles, short walk into the undergrowth from the track.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 17th April 1951 costing £12.12s.0d. Flush bracket levelled for height in 1953. Computed as ssecondary triangulation station SE97/30 within the Bridlington block during 1954. Last maintained by the OS in June 1984. SITE VISIT: Starting point depends upon which neighbouring trigs are being bagged on day of visit. Approached from north. Parked in forest track entrance at SE938900. Climbed mapped track to junction with high road at SE942889 then east along track and north into foliage where this trig lurks. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces NNW, ~342°. Vented through SE sight hole. No view, in woods. The more obvious starting point at SE942889 would be used if visiting this using roads from the south.

Camping at Betton Farm for 4 days. Drove up from A170 through Sawdon, a lonely place. Views from car parking area very good - trig just down forest track heading east, just off left and v easy to spot, obvious signs of previous trigbaggers. Concrete plug, trig is in exceptional condition. Obviously would have been awesome before the forest, but there you go....

Easily found near forest ride. Great views from the Highwood Brow viewpoint nearby looking north towards Langdale Rigg. I have not been here since 1985 when I was running in the White Rose Orienteering event and came quite close to this trig, see map attached.

A dry day as I head to the North Sea at Scarborough. This was a big disappointment as the view from the viewpoint marked on the map is largely blocked by the trees and while the area around the trig appears recently cleared it too has no view due to the surrounding conifers. At least there is a motorcycle rally (Nortons, Triumphs etc) on today using the road end as a stopping point.
