Parked near trig on access road to windfarm. Had to wade through nettles and thistles but always worth it!

Drove right up to the masts. Unfortunately a security man was sitting at the Balfour Beatty van store and just as I was contemplating trying to get over the barbed wire for a picture of the flush bracket, his car door opened so I thought better of it.

Pillar just beside the road. FB faces south-east-ish with north-west-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with sunken lettering. Decent views.

Log #31, and last of mammoth North-East day trip. Didn't see any of the Authorised Access signs mentioned by previous loggers. Parked by metal fencing and hopped over the wire fencing to get into the trig's field. Rather overgrown compared to older photos. [ExP-31/MiP-0/BM-0]

Appears to be in the grounds of some sort of Business Park. Signs on road warning of Authorised Access Only, but I pressed on regardless. Passed a couple of vehicles leaving the park - lunchtime - but paid me no attention. Parked on road and dashed across fence to take pictures etc. When the police car drove up I got slightly concerned, but it didn't stop - just drove past - phew! Good condition, plug intact, no views

A nice trig point that I found remarkably hard to find considering its position. Good views out to sea to the north.
