Second of 5 trigs, cycling. Trig in good condition, easily got to from Sandy gate Lane. Quite good views, S/SW, and power stations W. Trig covered in lichen, looking camouflaged, probably hard to spot in autumn. Trig covered in flies (again).

Walked along field edges from footpath to south, but easier from road in the north. Last of 6 pillars today, I had previous done the same circuit in 2010. This particular trig was my 100th "new" pillar of 2010. Distant views to peak district.

Easily accessible with field trespass and highly visible as approached. I parked in lane to north by barrier gateway and crossed grass field to pillar. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug. Expansive views from this location.

Log #73. (76m). Leg 1 of 3 trig 8.3km linear hike from High Ackworth to Darrington. Another frustrating day with the thick haze that has been around for weeks. (Apparently it is being caused by dust - no wonder I cant keep my car clean)! Otherwise not a cloud in the sky and 25 degrees today. This one easy access along field paths. Lichen taken hold, but OS plug in place on spyder.

Went up with James, Beamer and Duke. Guitars and singing, it was dark. Look for the A628 "Motorway in the Sky" curling up the Pennines to the South West. Shh don't tell anyone where we are

Plug intact. Not far from a water tower. A rather average trig - best approached by road from the east and then you don't see the goml notices until its too late to matter.
