During a drive into Wakefield I took the opportunity to bag this trig - one of the closest to where I live. Parked in the truck loading bay beside this little corner of bracken and marched through the undergrowth to the trig. Still accessible in early April, though in a month's time I don't expect many trigpointers will be logging this one, certainly not till the middle of autumn when the scrub dies back - it really is in amongst it, with bushes and bracken everywhere. Will be utterly lost from view by the summer months. No great view in any direction, but the trig is in excellent condition and appears to have been recently painted.

Not an easy one to visit at this time of the year. Defended by head high bracken making access without a machete very difficult. The recent coat of paint has helped finding it though but I was almost on top of it when I spotted it. Definitely one to visit in autumn, winter or spring but not in the height of summer. The pillar itself is in good condition but has a resin plug. The only view today was bracken.
