Parked at Alwinton and walked north up Clennell Street exploring the fort and numerous settlements en route. This pillar has 2 large cracks splitting it into thirds. Clennell Hall was open for tea.

Linbrig more than made up for the underwhelming experience of Burradon Mains TP, 4 miles away! It holds a commanding position at the Alwinton end of Coquetdale with superb 360 views. Parked at the Alwinton P&D car park and walked a mile or so down the road into Coquetdale, before passing through a metal gate and following a good grassy track that looped and zig-zagged up the south east slopes of Green Side Hill and eventually ends at the small stone cairn of Lords Seat. A short diversion west at about 360m aiming for a rocky knoll and after crossing a pretty rubbish wire fence the TP is situated in a grand airy location. Continuing the walk NE along an ATV track to Lords Seat just 3 metres higher is definitely worth the effort.

Parked in the good sized layby near the cattle grid S of the trig. Took the bridleway to the E as far as the fence then straight up, occasionally thrashing through bracken. Good view.

Stiff climb using the track from the minor road to the south east. The condition of the pillar appears to be as previously posted.

Bagged this after Alwinton Horshoe that included Wether Cairn and Bloodybush Edge trigs. Good to see the trig still together if looking a little worse for wear. Funny, nobody bags this for 2 years then 3 come along in a couple of weeks!

HISTORY: Pillar completed 18th June 1954 costing 38.16s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NT72/T63 during 1957. Levelled for height to Class 2 precision in 1958. Last maintained by the OS in August 1978. SITE VISIT: Approached from SSE. Parked on verge by dungheap at NT904064 only to find later that there is a parking bay less then 200m to the east. North up mapped track from NT903064 which leads to open grazing top. Pillar severed near top but still in one piece following the reinstatement work. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces southeast, compass measurement 49. Front sight hole open, others plugged. GPS reading spot on. Views to Shillhope Law, Bloodybush Edge and many tops to the southern aspect still to be identified from the photos.

Bagged this on the way to Shillope Law. Previous logs observe that the trig had been broken but on this visit it appears to be put back together. The evidence remains as a huge crack around the middle. It remains worse for wear and I felt quite sorry for it, especially as it hadn't been logged for 4 years! Some good views to the higher tops of Coquetdale but not today due to very low cloud and rain. Flush bracket intact.
