Quick nip up from minor road to SW over rough ground. Pillar is VGC; it has a replacement top plug of an indeterminate material not seen before - not obviously asphalt or mortar; RHS sight hole open. Panoramic views.

Parked at Rookhope and bagged the three trigs on a high level walk above the village during this glorious March in 2012. This was an afterthought! I sat on Bolts Law trig to the north and was going to head to Horseshoe Hill but then spotted this on the very bottom of my map. As it made a nice horseshoe above Rookhope, I made the long walk over to this great view point. Firstly on an easy track, then on over the totally pathless ridge to the north of the trig. Great views an a great spot. As I had parked at the flume arch at the other end of Rookhope, it was a long hours walk back to the car.

Situated just off the secondary road between Rookhope and Stanhope. An easy climb up the hill which is rough grassland and sheep are the only company. The trig point is generally in good condition however the centre plug has been removed and the hole filled with a brown resin material. The views are pretty much the same in all directions, rolling hills and moor covered with rough grass and heather.
