This was the object of a 60 mile round trip cycle ride from Morpeth. What a long hill from Chollerford. The rain had blown over by the time I reached the trig so there were lovely views to the north. The westerly wind blew me home again. Lovely ride.

Third time lucky for this pillar. The first attempt had the thing in a cloud so no point in visiting. Second attempt had a hunt occupying all the parking within a mile, so gave up on that. Next day, clear sky and no prats on horses! Best approached from parking to the west due to high-speed traffic along the old military road. Pillar in vgc with FB facing NNE-ish, no cap or plug and NNE/EES sightholes open. The pillar has been painted white, but, as noted previously, is quite rubbed in places. Worth having a look at the nearby Mithraic Temple and Brocolita fort too. Cracking views.

The road is a clearway but there is a handy pull in just to the west around the corner. From there it is a very gentle stroll back along the wall. The previously mentioned white paint is suffering from animals rubbing up against the trig - its a greasy brown in places now. Extensive views to the north, west and east, so allied to the history of the place deserves a high score.

Easily accessible and highly visible. On Hadrians Wall footpath. handy parking area and stile just to the west which enables a visit to this trig and the cache at Limestone Corner. Pillar in good codition except that plug is missing. Reasonable views but sound from nearby road spoils the solitude feeling.

Contrary to Peripatetic, we braved the wind and were walking HW trail east to west so this was the point it got interesting. Second trig in this direction; no cows, clear day and great views to the north (we debated whether we were looking all the way to the Cheviots)

This beauty lies at the point where the walk along Hadrian's wall becomes less interesting, if one is going from west to east (which is best, with respect to having the wind behind). It was being defended with great tenacity by a mighty beast...
