Must have passed by this spot countless times over the years back as far as 1968 I would guess. This one will always remain a 'drive-by' as far as we are concerned and I thank others on this site who have taken the trouble to seek out remains of pillar and provide information to save us the trouble.

Site is now verge of N-bound c/way, at foot of embankment: trig would have been maybe 5m above current ground level. Parked in village and walked in from SW. Various lumps of concrete along highway fenceline make a bit of an effort with an impression of a centre hole but I suspect they're just drainage-surround-related.

Log #75. (50m). Leg 3 of 8.3km x 3 trig linear walk from High Ackworth to Darrington. OS shows this trig to have been at 50m elev. Both the Grid ref and the 50m contour line show this to have been to the left of the A1(M) FP just inside the perimeter fence looking N. I climbed up the small bank to observe the high point of the arable field to the W of the hiway boundary fence, then lined up with the high point of the ground on the other side of the Motorway. This ties in with the Grid ref. The Grid ref of the boundary fence is 48844. Photo shows nothin but ground cover and trees with sidewalk down below. The whitish color to the L of that is actually a truck passing by.

Great Clump The trigpoint (best calculation I can make) I'm facing S. The hiway and sidewalk is to the left. The perimeter fence and field is just to the o/s right of frame

The minor road that is Spitalgap Lane that appears to traverse to A1(M) doesnt. I came (on foot) from the east along the road passing Hunters Wood to reach a dead end at the A1(M). I didnt fancy my chances crossing both lanes of the A1(M) so had to detour via Darrington. Where the minor road passes under the flyover a footpath immediately on the right follows the motorway up towards Spitalgap Lane (when it reaches the ROW heading west you can follow the - permissive path - that runs along the eastern edge of the field the trig might have been in). If you come from the west you cant drive a car down Spitalgap Lane - bike (push or motor) will do the job, but again its a dead end when you reach the motorway. Todays view was of a dying crop of whatever in the field. NCOF!

From Darrington take Philips Lane then down the path to the A1 - no path across field - at A1 head north following road. Poetically, the lumps of concrete near the high point could be the remnants of man's past endeavours taken by the road now without apology. Take the frankly once dangerous A1 junction of Spittalgap lane, now growing over, and follow Marl Pit Lane home. Nothing too great to see - on a clear day look North-East to the line of the Yorkshire Wolds, the Aire valley lies north. No Pennine view from here, try to spot Upton Water Tower on your return whilst admiring the former windmill on Moor Lane.

nothing here - road widening looks like most likely reason.

Yep, the road must have claimed this one. I drive past here every week and never knew this one was (or wasn`t here) as it doesn`t show on memory map, only became aware of it thanks to the tom tom upload file.

A mini-mystery. Noted iainmac's log of 'couldn't find it'. According to the OS list this trig was S4158 and theres a photo with that number posted by Morseman to groups.msn.com/OSBM on 12/05/2003. So I wondered if I had somehow missed something and went for another look. Its still not there! Well-established wooden railings on the field side of the hedge are not shown in Morseman's photo so the trig must have been on the road side. But the saplings on the embankment are more that 2 years old and aren't shown in his photo either so could the trig have been moved? Found a few flakes of concrete at the highest point, but could have been from anything. Still a very noisy road.

Great Clump View from across the road. Getting across the A1 on foot is not recommended 8-)

This section of the A1 is not (yet) classed as motorway so access on foot is possible. But if the older OS map's indication of the west side of the road is correct then I think this one has definitely gone. It should have been very close to the stile marking where the footpath joins the road. The trig is not shown on current OS 1:25000 or 1:50000. Checked both sides of the hedge but nothing. A very noisy road.

I believe this must have gone when A1M made dual carriageway.

Thrashed up and down the hedgerow at the side of the A1 in hope but couldn't find any trace of the pillar.
