Revisit after a long while. Given the urban surroundings, its disappointing but not entirely surprising to see the damage inflicted. The top third of the pillar has gone, with more likely to follow. One large fragment of concrete on the ground. Brick/stone interior exposed. Spider gone, centre pipe battered. Flush bracket still intact and oddly theres no graffiti. Someone round here doesn't like trigs :(

Cap missing. Top spalling. Bits missing from side. Has a view back to Bramley Reservoir pillar (TP1579), and it appears that the whole front wall of the reservoir has been removed and is currently being recast. Only time will tell if that pillar survives.

Heading back to Haworth having spent a day circling Leeds and visiting the local trig population. Took a few minutes to locate in the maze of local roads, but new I was getting close when I met muddy footballers walking up road. A top of bank by sports pitches. Clouds now closing in again and light becoming poor, so decided to call it a day after 10 ticks, and miss the last two possibles - there'll be there for another time!

Easy bag accessed from S. Trig on open playing fields, no hassle. I was pleasantly surprised with the view not bad up Airedale, and down towards Ferrybridge and over Troydale, Bramley res. Not so familiar with West Leeds being from Ackworth. Trig has missing plug, v slight damage but signs of fire have now gone and Hough Top trig pillar lives on proudly...

An easy find, but a sorry looking trig. Looks like it might have been the middle of a bonfire. The plate is scorched and there are singe marks up the sides and some of the concrete has fallen off. It might not last too much longer if it keeps being treated like this.

Easily found and in surprisingly good condition given proximity of habitation. The pillar is set lower than most with the flush bracket at ground level. FB was partially obscured by a pile of dog muck (one point lost) and therefore unable to confirm number.

Set in amongst urban sprawl next to the school playing fields. Trigs OK, looking a little past it's best - greying and rounding at the edges - but no great physical damage. Done on a Cottingley to Bramley (railway) station to station walk. Gets 1 extra point for simply still being there.
