Short walk from the gate to the south, the gate was open but did not want to risk damage to the car on the rough road. On my way from Collier Law pillar to Burnhope Burn Bridge flush bracket.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and remains in a reasonably good condition.

The gate at the entrance of the track was open so drove up to the transmitter compound and had a short stroll across the boggy moor to the pillar.

A bitterly cold winters afternoon with snow on the fells. I love the Durham Fells in the winter - they are just so beautiful. An easy walk up through the snowdrifts on the track that goes to to the mobile phone masts.

vgc, old brown resin plug. Dampish heather moorland. Last of the weekend: a nice easy finish. I thought I'd now finished all trigs from here N to the Scottish border, only to discover that Clochandighter had refound S6654, also on LR87, a week ago !
