Lots of quarries, mine shafts and a never ending sequence of mini escarpment slopes to ascend before arriving at this trig. Howden Burn is worth an explore. Parked at Bollihope 2nd trig of the day after following a fig of 8 route incorporating Catterick Moss.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and remains in a good condition.

Cycled with some walking, from Pikestone Fell. Pillar has some cracks & some slight edge damage in places, but overall it scrapes in with good condition. Good 360deg views.

Walked in from B6278 on shooters tracks to Trig and then onto Pikestone Fell. Lots of Grouse, Golden Plover but no other walkers, lovely.

Lots of moor burning going on - I thought it had been banned! Air was full of smoke as there was good cloud cover and little wind!

Came in the long way today from South of Wolsingham. Nice peaceful walk amongst the heather before the grouse shooting starts on Friday

No cap present. Gorgeous view to the west of Bollihope Common, for the best views walk to the currick NW of the trig.

Unsurprisingly, footpath from SW doesn't exist on the ground. Recommend previewing from Google Earth to find a better route - especially if recently and currently heavy rain!

My fiftieth visit to a triangulation pillar! We celebrated by watching the sunset, with a nice cup of Lapsang Souchong...
