Parked on track adjacent to pillar and found a path through the heather to the pillar. Pillar in great condition, no cap/plug and has a water bottle jammed in it, one sight hole open. Excellent views from pillar on a fine day.

Bishop Auckland to Ilkley Walk Day 1 of 12. First ever visit to Weardale, what a wonderful untouristy place this is. Mostly following Weardale Way from BA to Holebeck House camp near Wolsingham. Emerged from Black Bank Plantation to see a path leading up to trig. Easy access on open moorland. Trig in good condition, plug missing, green tinge to FB. Wonderful views of lower Weardale.

Highly visible and easily accessible. I used a track from the nearby road and then cut up to the pillar on a well walked trod. Everything in good order with the pillar except for a missing plug. Some reallt lovely all round views from this elevated vantage point.
