Last trig of the day for me before lodging with friends in Hexham for the evening. I saw a car drive out so I guessed the car park was still accessible and risked driving all the way up. I think the venue was being hired for a wake so there were quite a few people around dressed in black. The smartly painted trig is very accessible.

I couldn’t resist the cluster of Trigs in the Hexham area visited whilst on a day out along Hadrian’s Wall, this pillar sits nicely above the racecourse with good views over Hexham and beyond
