Start of a beautiful walk working out the river catchments in this the land of the East (just) up to Beasley Beacon then across the moor returning through beautiful lanes and old routes, pig farms to lapwing flocks. 2nd trig nearly in view from here.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 3rd April 1949 costing 9.9s.8d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SD96/T25 in 1951. Levelled for height in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in October 1986. SITE VISIT: Drive by trig. Could have touched this one without getting out of the car. On the edge of public car park. Pillar in good condition and still reasonably white. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces NNW, ~337. All four horizontal sighting holes open, innards blocked with debris. Two separate panoramic views in opposite directions each spanning 90, one centred on NNW and the other on SSE. Remainder blocked by neighbouring woods.

Revisit. Tarmac plug. Mac Hawk's paint job is still evident but starting to flake a little. At least theres no graffiti and not much litter at present. As regards the choice of location, theres a sightline to Beamsley Beacon in one direction and across Ilkley in another, so maybe this plus ease of access was a factor. Rain approaching.

Not the most obvious place to site a Trig - on the side of a hill and behind a wall (maybe the wall wasn't there when the Trig was built?). Anyway the Trig has had it's plug filled in and doesn't appear to have suffered any further recent damage or vandalism

We were driving along the road to Beamsley Beacon and pulled in to check the map. Literally right in front of the car, beside a wall, stood this trig point! A complete accidental discovery, this one. Some smart alec had recently tried to start a fire right in front of the trig judging by the burnt wood and layer of soot on the trig paint. No view today, due to low misty cloud. Nothing special here, though at least you needn't waste any precious time to get to this one since it's immediately beside the road!

Easy to find using the OS Landranger map. The first day after the Easter holiday, noticeably cooler and overcast. This pillar has its own lay-by and litter bin and probably witnesses many clandestine meetings too ! Good views to be enjoyed on a finer day I should imagine.

Its a re-visit but seeing the recent photos, there are some things you just have to do. Towards the back end of a 12 mile walk I purposely detoured to this trig to give it a bit of TLC. It now resembles something like its prime, I hope it lasts (but I doubt it). I apologise for not being able to coat the rear of the pillar (the wall side) as the paint ran out. Note for anyone else considering such action, I reckon you need at least half a litre of paint to generously cover a standard trig (not including any plynth it might be sat on)
