'Bagged' whilst enjoying a super sunny 11+mile circular Winter walk from Old Yeavering. Great views from this trig - not difficult to find detouring from the footpath but not easy to see walking from the west (just head in from the path's highest point and you soon see it).

First of the year. Easy parking at no cost to access these magnificent undulating hills that skirt the SW corner of the Millfield Plain. Return journey via Humbleton Hill takes the score to a higher plane. Lots more to explore. A place to return and ponder.

From Wooler, following St Cuthbert's Way, veered off via shooting butts to trig pillar. Very windy, tail end of hurricane Ophelia. In a good state but crack all around base about a foot from ground and central plug missing. Amazing views all around. Too cold to linger for long, dropped down to NE to escape the wind.

Some cracking from around lower flush bracket. Parked near Akeld left hand footpath towards Gains Law via footpaths and shooting tracks to gain its trig point. Then down towards Gleadscleugh before climbing up to White Law. Returned to Akeld via the alternative footpath to the west of the Akeld Burn this time.

Pleasanat 3 hour saunter from Wooler Common Nature Reserve car park west out to Commonburn House then north to join St Cuthberts Way and back east over Gains Law. Excellent views along the way, and a great walk for anyone seeking solitude! I know the last few weeks have been well short of a heatwave, but SCW is pretty 'moist' in places...

Parked at Humbleton and did 17km circuit: Humbleton hillfort, Gains Law trig, Wester Tor, Easter Tor, Yeavering Bell hillfort, White Law and back to Humbleton. Glorious sunny day. Some small snow patches to cross and a bit of heather bashing, but overall a grand day out. Lots of prehistoric settlements, great view across snowy Cheviot, and the two big Iron Age hillforts.

St Cuthbert's Way #5: today we added bog to mud, but the sunny, breezy day, ideal for walking, made it worthwhile. Stunning views - coast and Islandshire to N, Cheviots to S and W, and unidentified range of hills SE on the horizon (our map didn't go that far!). No cap or plug; E and W s/holes open, crack all round pillar at FB level but otherwise OK.

A good trig point, with excellent views out to the coast. Everything intact on pillar but there is a crack running around the base. I've walked past this tp a few times without noticing it was there and it is not visible from the path. Bagged this on a circular walk from Humbleton Burn Car Park via Humbleton Hill, Gains Law, Yeavering Bell and Gleadscleugh.
