It's a long day trip from Brum to South Shields and back, so not a lot of time for trig hunting but spotted this gloriously white-painted pillar from the northbound A19 and couldn't resist a detour. No plug and huge chunks of concrete missing. N/S sightholes open, other closed. Good views over Sunderland to the North Sea and also of the Nissan factory inland in spite of a rather cloudy day.

Quite a distinctive little hill easily identified from the Penshaw pillar. The farmer seems to be locked in a constant battle with the locals judging by the patched up barbed wire fence. Managed to get through a missing section without causing any more damage. Pillar appears to have received a coat of paint since the last log.

Spotted this one by chance driving north on A19 three weeks ago on our previous trip this way (the pillar is not visible when travelling south). Parked on track off Foxcover Road, climbed over fence and climbed straight up to pillar. Not a good day for sight-seeing - damp and misty but I would guess the view is terrific on a clear day.

Nice easy trig to do. Approached along Foxcover Road, parked at the left turn that leads up to the farm. Easy walk to the trig. Fantastic views of area. Good clear day. Trig in a dodgy condition. Lots of evidence of night time activity from local youths. Shame, because it's a great location, with lots to see.

Blowy day, great view. This one really has been in the wars. The most damaged one since a Scottish one that must have had a direct hit by lightning. May have misread the FP number it is painted over with graffiti.

Going by the pillar damage and broken glass, the local braindead pondlife must frequent this area. Pillar had previous repairs but been damaged again with two large bites out of one of the edges. Spider centre open, innards filled with debris. Flush bracket faces 27 NNE. NW and SE sight holes open, debris inside.

County Durham. I expect that this was once a nice little hill but the encroachment of modern society has taken its toll. Plug missing - which is hardly surprising.

The trig appears to be getting more and more damaged, probably be a youthful local lager appreciation society. A good 360 view from the trig and easily accessible.
