From the 454m spot height on minor road to WSW. Some interesting land formation round Groove Rake on the way up - related to old quarry works or landslip, maybe a mixture of the 2. Pillar has no top cap or plug; rear sight hole open. Panoramic views.

Visited this trig point after finding a nearby geocache. Lovely walk.

Parked in the smaller of the two laybys above the remains of Grove Rake Mine and followed the row up to the summit then headed across to the trig. Morning mist had not yet dispersed so no view. Pillar in vgc with original cap.

A hard walk over heather, devoid of paths, from the public path off the Rookhope-Blanchland road.

Parked at Rookhope and bagged the three trigs on a high level walk above the village during this glorious March in 2012. Approached this after following Rookhope Chimney Flume track from road, then headed north and followed the fence that brought me to the trig. Great viewpoint and a wild spot. Onto Bolts Law trig from here.

Dull drizzly autumn day. Plug intact, one sighting hole open, pillar has remnants of paint. Cloud down - no view other than a row of fence posts. Approached from E; soggy in places but could have been worse.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. By remains of wall. Summit (which I didn't revisit) is 500m WSW. Dry Rigg reached via wet moorland :-( from E: parked at NY931447.

Stopped by to log this one while doing the nearby geocache of the same name on a pleasant day for a walk.

Wow... this was a wild one. A howling gale and intermittent rain that came at you horizontally. Found the nearby cache first then carried on up to the trig point. The views are of open moor and while nice, they're not exactly spectacular. The structure is in good condition with all its metalwork in place
