Parked in the turning head at Port Mulgrave and followed the marked track up through the crops. Overgrown around the pillar but still in decent condition. The mist lifted enough to give limited coastal views.

From the Cleveland Way just looks like a bit of farm debris - wonderful atmospheric spot. Feel the way the place has changed, old workers terraced houses and big farms, scars of the coastal mining and the towers of Boultby and Teeside. Good half way point between cake at Runswick and cake (cobble - yum) at Staithes

Little hail shower on it's way to get us, a beautifully churned cold northern sky. See the Aurora Borealis for the 1st time later
View to Runswick Bay -wonderful spot
Shelters which half hide eastern approach to trig - old ladder not detached from shelter wall looks forlorn

Parked in small parking area at end of lane above Port Mulgrave.Then took 1st path along side of last house which go through the corn field on a well walked path.At the top of the field it's along the field boundary to the small mound at the highest point you can see. The top is home to a Cold War Observation Bunker and the Trig, which is hiding in the gorse shrubs.

Had a blond senior moment and drove straight past Easington trig to this one! Trig in a field of corn although its little spot is covered with gorse so easy to find. Just off the public footpath but nice tractor lines to follow to avoid crop damage. Views out to sea...shame it was so grey...matching the sky.
