Nice way to end the day. Not to far from the car and not to wet under foot either!!

Friendly man in cottage accompanied me to this pillar. Now a fence surrounds this trig. Apparently the water tank is constructed on an ancient burial cairn. Numerous Iron Age artefacts have been found. The buildings other side of the green lane WW2 hospital and morgue for pilots. Deserves a score of 7 due to the surrounding history.

Parked at start of green lane. The disused buildings to E of trig look like they're from the WWII era. Unfortunately, the FB faces the fence.

A very short clockwise walk from the Helm - Eshott minor road along a short track just west of a cottage, over a gate, up to the TP then out through another gate and onto the green lane mentioned by Offpiste and back round to the car, a walk that could be accomplished in all of 2 minutes if one didn't stop to photograph the TP...Good views west towards the Cheviots and Simonside, views east to the coast blocked by the water tank / reservoir (?) though if you use the stile to take in the views north east - south east along the coast the views are terrific.

NorthEast sight open with lightly indented cap. Beside a wee compound with trees to the west obscuring what could have been a 360degree view. Jubilee trig#2. :D

On approach looked as though a fence had been installed around trig. However, only the concrete tank is enclosed.

Cycled out from Morpeth. Appears to be standing in a moat of stagnant water from the concrete reservoir (?) next to it. Surprised not to find tadpoles. Pity about the puncture on the way home.
