At last back to being able to go a wandering - so here's one spotted on the OS back in Winter - pretty wintry today too. Moody and wet. Water bottles on the top - guess being set up for an Iron Man viewing point.

Staying in the area on stopover on the way back home from the hols and searched the database for a trig to bag and this was the closest. Parked down the lane and walked through a jungle of a bridle path to get to the trig but the views were decent for not a lot of climbing. My first "decorated" trig - loved the red roses.

A short, sharp climb from the path at the north end of the quarry takes you directly to the trigpoint. The views were quite impressive but the dark clouds threatened imminent rain so I didn’t hang around long enough to appreciate them. The pillar is in good condition apart from the missing plug, leaving an eTrex size hole in the top. Just for the record... this is my 300th Trigpoint.
