Rushed up to trig after a very wet afternoon at Rainton Meadows wildlife centre. Pretty wet at the trig too. Little view as such but the low cloud base was quite atmospheric.

Pillar in good nick although base is exposed, probably result of plouging and grazing. Spider plug still intact. Good view round across County Durham and of Penshaw Monument. Bagged on a walk from Pittington, easy approach to the Weather station then a nip across the field.

Sadly a v. foggy day, so no views. However, as I could see nothing, I figured no one could see me and my absurd pack of hounds, so we all crossed the field from the Met Office Weather Station to the TP.

Convenient parking spot on the Moorsley Road nz337459. Walked SE via the footpath, through the plantation towards the golf ball. Unable to reach the trig point due to wheat crop. Need to return once the crop is harvested. A smashing view.

From rainfall monitoring station, at present, the 'crop' crossing can be made by just walking on soil patches - not certain if it is a crop! Quite a nice setting, with the trig in an island of uncultivated ground. Penshaw hill is visible.

My first Trig in Tyne & Wear. Like others before me, I followed the PROW to the mast and then made a quick dash to the Trig itself. In view of building work going on at nearby farm, so did not linger!

Low FB number. Pleasant afternoon. Met the farmer - friendly, although I think he was querying my slight trespass; not sure as I couldn't understand his accent :)
