A satisfying little bag this one, one of those lets just set it down here trigs. Watched by cow and calf initially until the grass proves more interesting.

A roadside trig point. Located on a fence line about 40m from the minor road. Very inquisitive young cattle who followed my every move. They photo bombed all my photos.

17/03/18 An afternoon revisiting three local roadside TPS with the bairn and the dawg trying to capture views of the recent snow. 11/07/16 First Visit - By quite some distance this is the easiest TP I've logged to date, about 30 seconds down a farm driveway from parking spot by gate. Very extensive views South East over the less pretty stretch of the Northumbrian coastline (Blyth, Newbiggin, etc) and no views north east to the stunningly beautiful section of of the Northumbrian coast line. View west to Freemanshill Moor, but all views from West - North - East are obscured by the hedge on other side of the drive and behind that huge piles of rotting straw bales.

Parked at start of farmtrack. Was met by a farmhand driving a tractor halfway to the pillar. He stopped and asked what I was doing. Got the usual incredulous look when I told him.

Just up a very muddy but short farm track. Friendly farmer said we were the second people this week to ask to photograph the trig.

Standing on the bank on the other side of the farm track you could see for miles out to sea over the agricultural machinery and inland over the moors. Oh but what a climb up from Alnmouth to get here on my bike ! Brilliant ride on a beautiful day.

Easy access from farmers track. Pillar, spider and bracket all in good condition. Original OS cap in spider. Farmer drove past on tractor and waved, he must be getting used to those strange people who come to see the trig.

Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap. FB faces WNW and is of conventional OSBMS layout, NOT a BSM FB. On the right hand side of farm track outside field. No access problems. Visited and photographed 11/08/1998, GRP.

S3690 Pillar and FB I got funny looks too. You can see the farmer approaching in his Landrover. You think they'd be used to folk studying the trig by now.
