Easy walk in from the road following footpath past the farm. Pillar next to gate, flush bracket facing the water trough so very wet and muddy on that side. No sheep in field when visited. Good view of chimneys at Glaxo Smith Kline at Barnard Castle and further up Teesdale

Pretty much unchanged from the last visit in 2017 with the puddle still in place. Approached from the north through Hillingdon Farm. Yard and surrounding fields full of expectant ewes but no lambs. Trig field empty.

Pillar in good condition however proximity to a cattle drinking trough is eroding the surrounding land around the base. A pool of water exists on its west side. Lovely stone arch, linking fields, over the dismantled railway line.

Parked in small layby near farm entrance to N of trig. Followed right of way to pillar. Farmer waved hello as he passed by on his quad bike feeding the sheep.

Walked to trig using ROW from southeast through fields with lots of cattle/calves and one big bull, who all showed great interest in what we were doing.

Included in a circular walk from Stainton. Approached from Dent Gate Lane and engaged in my second battle of nerves with cattle on the same day. Also got a belt off the electric fence by accidentally touching it with the rucksack. Ah, the joys of Trig Point Bagging. No plug.

A field corner trig and very easy to access being on a footpath. A joint enterprise with Carole. We parked in the farm gateway to the north of Hillingdon Farm and simply followed the footpath to the trig. We were followed by a heard of bellowing cows - had we been off piste they would certainly have made our presence known. The pillar itself is in good shape standing near the wall and field gate. Unfortunately the plug has gone walk about so the innards of the pillar are now open to the elements.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 26th October 1947 costing 5.6s.6d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NZ42/T33 in 1948. Levelled for height in 1958. Last maintained by the OS in November 1980. SITE VISIT: Approached from SE. Parked west side of Dent Gate Lane at NZ068208 by entrance to barn. Walked 200m SW along road to style beside field gate. Electric fences very close to stile. Fence was definitely energised, quite a crack from the spark when tested. From stile, followed the mapped RoW which runs past the trig. Pillar in muddy SE corner of grazing field but in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces west, ~276. Vented through west and north sight holes. Mainly open skyline but no particularly long views.

Approached from SE via footpath; frisky heifers with a bull that ran away when it saw me. Steady drizzle plus an electric fence that I unintentionally confirmed was live. Another day, another trig... Plug missing, base exposed, two sighting holes open. Too wet for views.

I approached from B6279 along the public footpath by the farm which gives the trig its name.My trusty 1976 50k shows the path east of the farm but it has been moved west as I discovered on the way back (the modern map shows the correct route).The trig is by a wall next to a drinking trough and is half surrounded by water.The centre plug is missing but otherwise in good condition.I had the company of many curious cows!.There are excellent views in all directions.
