County Durham has some very attractrive Trig Points - generally the further west you travel, the better they get. This one, in the east of the county, is only really of interest to people fascinated by litter, fly-tipping and rubbish!

A convenient car parking spot at the N corner of a housing estate of Bowburn. A well used dog walking area. Trig point is currently overgrown by the seasonal brambles. The Tail- upon- End Lane provides homework to discover this interesting road name.

Trig situated just off roadside, in a hedge bordering a ploughed field and next to a housing estate. Very wet and windy day, but don't think this trig location could be much improved with better weather!
