Parked nearby and a pleasant walk through the woods to the pillar. We collected a couple of caches as we went. Pillar in woods with no views.

Bagged as YSM339 Cowcroft. Walked up the bridleway then followed wee tracks through the woods to the trig. Loads of bluebells out in the woods. Lovely walk.

Lightly indented cap with only the Southern sight open. Good parking at the Kirk.. if there hadn't been a Charity Bazaar on! - the single track road to the Kirk was a nightmare and I'll bet those woods never wholly dry out! ;-) ..gyro gliders were taking off and landing in the field behind the woods.. a bit scary when you suddenly here a powered engine cutting out overhead (then they glide the last bit).

Parked near the church to the north which is down a narrow lane from the main road. Made my way along the footpaths through the woods to this fine spot. Trig and top in good condition.

Passing by on a geocaching mission. Had to negotiate a flooded section of path to get here. Trig is nestled in a narrow woodland swathe. Views not much to speak of, although there is a strange golfball in the distance. Two for the price of one, as this trig is listed as geocache YSM339.

I Parked at the church to North then along through the woods to this one (with hindsight not such a good idea as it was dark on the way back! luckily I had as torch or I would be still in there!) - Pillar is located next to footpath and is in good condition - farmland views.

I drove down the narrow lane to the church and left my car in the church car park. It was a warm and sunny stroll along muddy paths through Cowcroft Woods to the trigpoint. The T/P is in good condition with all itís metalwork in place. The plug is of the shallow engraved variety. The location is pleasant enough but eastern aspect is the only open one and the view that way isnít great.

Walked in via the path up to the brickworks then across the field initially missed the direct path so had to cross a boggy field before an easy walk round the wood and back to the car

Very pleasant stroll through the woods. The trig is clear of vegetation (I was worried at this time of year I would have to hunt in a hedge).
