1st trig on second day on Dartmoor. Lovely calm sunny prelude to later serious rain and wind. Quick run up from Firth Bridge, where can be found good parking and a benchmark rivet. Pillar covered with white and red painted graffiti and showning signs of weathering with number of fractures; plinth exposed. Cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open - probably weathering again. Extensinve 360deg moorland views.

Our first Trig for over a year, nice to be back. Parked in the lay-by down by Firth Bridge and walked up to the Tor through Grimspound stone circle. Unfortunately the Trig was covered in graffiti. Enjoyed the view nearby while having lunch, then walked up to Hookney Tor on the return trip. Nice afternoon walk.

A retrospective log. Today (26/07/2017) I discovered some old walking notes. I remember this attempted walk well, for we'd started near Grimspound, but almost immediately the infamous Dartmoor mist had suddenly enveloped us. Carrying on was not an option with our two small children with us. To date, we've yet to return to complete the planned walk. Fascinating misty visit to Grimspound though.
