Easy enough roadside bag, you need to go over the wall or gate into the field to see the flush bracket. Didn't bag TUMP as (a) I wasn't aware of it and (b) it wasn't at the trig site!

From Martins Low pillar, N along Martinsfield Lane and Wooddisse Lane to join Parsons Lane. Pillar is located a few hundreed metres NW along Parsons Lane just inside a field behind a barbed wire fence. You'll need to cross the fence if you want to see the FB details but beware - the ground around this pillar was rather soft underfoot so I suspect it could be quite muddy after prolonged rain !! Cap has been replaced with tarmac (which has a hole in it) but otherwise in good condition. Average views when compared with Soles Hill. Returned to Wetton along the tarmac of Grindon Moor Lane, Weag's Bridge Road and Carr Lane.

Returning from a walk to Blake Mere, Revidge and Hill House. Found two cars parked right by the trigpoint – but no they weren’t fellow trigpointers – just a couple of young lads mending a stone wall in a nearby field. Good views up into the valley towards Wetton Mill.
