Parked at J1 Retail Park. From there you can really see the hill on which the trig sits. Walked up Crow Nest Lane. Once at the school there is a ginnel between the school and the bus turning circle. This runs E of the boundary fence. Once the fence ends and turns W there is a visible track running along the N boundary of the school. Following this you come to the trig, sitting just behind the school boundary fence, tantalisingly! It appears in good condition, although slight graffiti ("sex", really?). Hopefully the school will look after this one. Decent views over Leeds city skyline, Elland Rd stadium. The track continues around the perimeter and could be followed back to Crow nest lane, but I retraced my steps. The area around the boundary appears to be common land, saw one dog walker anyway.

4 of 4 for the day. Visited before. I first thought this would be quite difficult to reach as its actually in the school grounds surrounded by a 6 foot spikey fence. But its quite easy. A path runs from the east side of the school and goes along its north edge, right to the pillar. Theres a gate here, which makes climbing over quite simple, just be carefull of the spikes. Views are quite good overlooking Leeds.

Pillar was easily visible but being a Saturday unable to access due to the school being closed and locked. It is so close to the fence that it is touchable with a walking pole and the flush bracket is readble. Looks to be in excellent condition. Extensive views over the city of Leeds and the nearby Elland Road football ground. Noted to go back to on a school day!

Incredible level of security for a school. All the kids in class so risked a couple of pictures through the fence, which hasn't been electrified yet :) Zoom on camera good enough to pick out the FB number, so called this one bagged, especially as I was in my suit on the way to a meeting.

About 15 minutes walk from my house and it's taken me the best part of 12 months to tig it!! Good view of the footie stadium. First visited today at around 2.30 and logged the trig then from outside the fence - it's about 10ft inside the fence. Sat at home at 7pm and thought, well, being so close, not to attempt a real 'tig' would be a bit wimpish. Walked around the school perimiter twice and there is no alternative other than to climb the nearby gate but I have to say the fence top is VERY sharp and if you've got short legs (I'm 31 inside leg) I'd be very wary. Regardless of that, one slip over the fence and your sex life (or worse) could be gone - please be very careful. I personally would happily regard the trig being 'bagged' from outside the fence.
