Not the best off roads to find somewhere to park, but managed to get onto grass verge just where the bridleway crosses the road. Then walked through wood to access track for turbines. Its then easy going to trig point along track.

Followed sign post through conifer plantation. Brings you out to a road track leading uphill to the wind farm. The very close proximity of one of these wind turbines to this trig adds an element of excitement.

Parked at start of footpath through wood. Lots of strange mushrooms and fungi beside the path. Trig overshadowed by turbine.

There are sheep in the hill top field lurking in the bracken and long grass, keep dogs on a lead! Have to say I'm not a huge fan of the aesthetics of wind turbines...

View South East Trig Point just visible in front of turbine!
View North East with Rosie
View North West Glorious sunset behind the Cheviot

Parked on side of road through the gate to Trig point surrounded by wind turbines. Views to coast ok.

Quick drive-by from Quarry Ho after bagging Curleheugh TP. Never heard the sighing of a windfarm before. The views stretched from Coquet Island up the coast to Lindisfarne with islands and castles in between

Parked on the unclassified road and walked through the plantation bridleway to a new wind farm roadway on open access land which leads straight to the pillar. Great views to the coast and across to the Cheviots.

A short walk up through an abandoned farmstead. Bell-pits of old coal working are scattered across the area. The windfarm is now completed, so the pillar is dwarfed by the turbines.

Revisit. For photographs and GPS reading. Approached from south. Parked on north verge of unclassified road at NU124240. Walked road 150m west to mapped track which leads to top moor via the remains of a demolished building. Big changes on Hangwell Law. Thought the trig was a goner for a moment. Now overtopped by berms. What looks like a massive windfarm is being laid out. Hopefully the trig will survive but the excavations are very near. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains blank OS metal centre cap which was never engraved. Flush bracket faces ENE ~65. Vented through SE sight hole. Due to the recent excavation works in the surrounding area, views from this pillar are presently restricted. 90 open outlook SW survives, as do narrower views to NW and NE. Remainder blocked by large berms north and east, and the SE aspect is wooded.

Quick visit from road to the South over access land. Met very friendly farmer who was building shelters for the sheep with lambing about to start (late in these hills of course)

Good views to coast. TP easily accessed from road and in good condition. There was a 1p piece on top of the trig. A new trend?

On the edge of a moor. Good views towards the coast. Intact and a BSM type. Cap has no OS inscription and is plain bronze.
