Parked in the village of Witton Gilbert. An easy walk uphill following the ROW eastward to summit. The brambles are just ready for picking. This pillar is in a lovely spot situated next to a small plantation and surrounding farm fields. A regular dog walking area for the residents of Witton Gilbert. Great view NW to another trig at Charlaw Fell.

Approached (cycled) from Charlaw Fell, with a final short walk from N. Pillar has some small chips on a top edge - bigger chips on a side edge - shallow pitting & thin cracks on a side face (verging on slightly damaged). Spider has tar? plug. OK views. Nice setting for a near urban trig.

Painted white. Nice location with pleasant views. Durham Cathedral just obscured by trees. Traffic noise not too bad.

Easily accessible and very visible. I came up on footpath from Witton Gilbert and followed field edge footpath directly to the trig. Easy to spot as still quite white. Adjacent "made for viewing seat" very handy. At side of copse so views somewhat restricted but those that can be seen are over lovely rolling arable fields - currently being harvested. Pillar is in good condition but has concrete plug.
