Easy find at the side of road, sits in its own patio area with flagged entrance. All very overgrown, needs a good tidy up!

Parked right by pillar, as road was quiet. Pillar in good nick with a tarmac plug. Gets a 6 for having its own patio/garden!

Easy trig to bag, just along from Killingworth village. Little car park almost opposite so no problems with parking. Trig just off road up a couple of steps. Surrounded by overgrown weeds and rosebay willowherb. I must come back and get a photo when this is in full bloom as it will probably look quite nice, in an overgrown sort of way!

Paid homage to this trig in roadside verge with its own little path and walled others have said though, it's a bit grubby and there are no views.

Had to make a detour to squeeze 30 miles out of the ride here. The shrine idea is rather sweet but the pillar did look rather scruffy and they could do with a bit of weedkiller on the nettles around the base. Old style Northeast local authorities were prone to making gestures and then forgetting about the upkeep needed. Could I score this down because I had another puncture ?

Pillar very grubby but intact. Came up the old Wagon Way from Palmersville after visiting East Benton Farm (non)trig. Father Ted is correct about its shrine like position but unfortunately it just doesnt sit square enough to totally complete the effect, nice attempt though. View, well nothing really.

It looks like this trig point has had a shrine or altar constructed to it for those like me to come and pay homage to the great concrete pillar.
