Room to park two cars at NY 51157 84302 on the publicly accessible part of the forestry track. Followed mapped tracks to NY 55480 86075 and continued on until the cleugh to the S of Nether Castle Cleugh. Followed this up onto the open moor then hacked across heather and tussocks to the trig. Thankfully the traverse of the moor was fairly easy as the bogs were all dried out after the recent prolonged dry spell. Excellent long-distance views from the pillar.

A bright cold winter's day so ideal for Kielder trigging. Parked by Stelshaw Lodge (517816) and walked up the tracks through Kershaw Forest to reach the track-end at 555861. Then 50m straight on before turning up through felled forest with sparse regrowth to reach open moorland and head for the trig. It's best to keep high to avoid the worst of the peat-haggs, but even so it's slow difficult going across rotting forestry brash, bog, hagg and tussocky moor. Once again gets an 8 for the sheer difficulty of getting there (8km walk taking 2h15m). Is this the remotest trig in mainland England (i.e. the furthest from a public road)?

Altitude 517m Cycled to NY 56271 85503 then hoofed it across the fells. All of it is ankle turning - either remains of forestry felling, think tussocky grass or bogs. Not nice but cracking views from the trig pillar.

Parked at locked gate with sign 'Border Forest Park, Kershope' on it at NY 5035 8347. Long but easy walk to end of track at NY 5547 8608, then nearly a mile of rough going made worse by the wettest December on record. Given an 8/10 for effort required.

Visited before I decided to visit all the Cumbrian trigpoints. Cycled in from close to Kershope Bridge, and visited Davidson's Monument before the trig, and the remains of a Halifax bomber after.

An ascend from east with the magnificent seven to bag Martin Richardson's last E, W & IOM HuMP. Chris W provided the wet weather which made the tough going even tougher. GR8 circular route so revisit unlikely unless trying from west without CW.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters, heathery summit. Having already done a fair few miles today I found an open gate and treated myself to a (roughish) drive-up. From about NY563856, forest has been cleared, making for easy access. Anxious moment when I realised I'd dropped the car key - luckily right by the trig.

My route left the road at Kershope Bridge and followed drivable track along side Kershope Burn about a mile to the next bridge the road split here with locked barriers left the car here walked over the bridge and again followed the track alongside the burn passing Scotch Bershope and Kershopehead (where I should have crossed the Burn and followed the track up turning left at a junction to join the track which goes nearest to Glendhu Hill this connection is not shown on the map this cost me a lot of time and effort as I continued further up stream and tried to follow a gully up hard work),even from the upper track there is no easy way up to the summit I went up on the left side of Dove Crags where tree harvesting had cleared the forest but left much debris came down opposite side of dove crags much the same difficulty until I got to the track which to my surprise and relief lead me down to the Burn just passed Kershopehead,the Trig was in excellent condition probably due to its remoteness !Big Sky and distant views all round,A hard won Trig

My 200th trig!!! Climbed with my father (Philip Cotton) and Ken Hayes. Parked at picnic site south of Cuddy's Hall and cycled up to NY564853. There is a short northerly section of forest track that has been built since the Ordnance Survey map was produced. Followed a fire break on foot west to the forest edge and followed the west side of the forest to the summit of the hill. Trig point on the fence line at NE corner of forest bisecting Northumberland/Cumbria border.
