Although it's just a roadside TP it (a) has pretty fantastic views, especially north, and (b) it is the starting point for a fabulous walk over the moor to neighbouring TP Gaterley Hill. Highly recommend combining these two for a tremendous couple of hours excursion!

Located on the roadside. A one to bag on a bike ride or a quick nip out the car and on to the next trig point.

A little cloudy, so the views could have been better, but a nice location. This is described as a road side trig, but its almost just a path!

I couldn’t resist the cluster of Trigs in the Hexham area visited whilst on a day out along Hadrian’s Wall, this roadside pillar was a delight set in the beautiful countryside of Hexhamshire
