Camping in nearby Goathland. So my route was up the Goathland Moor road, across the A169 and down the Foster Howes Rigg. Pillar in good condition with original plug and metalwork intact. Lovely views of the purple moors and the coast, Ravenscar, Robin Hoods Bay. Having only done OS map research I didn't know about the nearby aux, but will deffo return for that if I can one day. Great walking country, if somewhat boggy due to recent rain. Walking back and regrettably going home a day early due to Storm Aileen warnings.

One of those North Yorks Moors days, beautiful blue skies at Falling Foss (May Beck makes for a more peaceful start point) then the grey smudges in and heavy rain- by the end of the walk nerves set in. Big spaces, old routes, pylon lines - ouch!

All intact. Windy but clear so views out to sea are lovely. Cycle in from NW, track deeply rutted but dry, would be very taxing if wet and muddy.

I came across the moor from where the A169 crosses the Eller Beck, via Louven Howe Aux 1 pillar a few yards away. This pillar is in good condition and has a full compliment of metalwork. The views are OK if you like open moor land. Took the somewhat less strenuous but equally muddy way back by following the track south and then west back to the A169.

From the main road to W a big track, little track, big track again lead to top. Boggy in places on little track. A walk with considerable interest, modern Fylindales MOD technology, ancient crosses and standing stones, all in a sea of heather. Saw an adder and slow worm on the track. Oh, and there are a couple of trigs too! - one the normal pillar, the other something of an oddity.

long slog in on track from the north west, views mostly obscured by the large forest to the east, however once past this there are good views towards the sea and Whitby. Inland its just wall to wall heather moorland, beautiful in its own way. Auxillary trig got at the same time, condition remains as reported before, 4 large cracks running the full lenght of the pipe.

Rough riding over forestry eroded tracks, there is another MoD trig pillar at SE8539798753 on Low Moor visible from the road from Eller Beck bridge to Moorgates. Incidently the "comedy flag pole " on the Fylingdales sandcastle is a triangular radio mast bearing a micro wave comms dish pointing to ... sorry I only built it, I'd have to shoot you all if I said any more!

Plug intact, one sighting-hole open. Views ancient and modern. Thanks to previous loggers for flagging the other 'trig'. Resembling an upturned drainpipe, the station is approx 48" high, 26" top diameter (including pipe thickness of approx 1" each side). There are four vertical cracks extending the full height of the pillar. No sighting/drainage holes so possibly the damage was caused by water seeping into the interior then freezing. Theres a standard OS spider; the plug is 3.5" diameter with a centre-punch mark, no lettering. Suspect the plug isn't meant to be removed and that there is no centre pipe. No evidence that there was ever a flush bracket. The pillar is on a square concrete base and presumably has some connection with the construction of Fylingdales Early Warning station. Sightlines from the nearby trig may have been obscured by the tumulus necessitating the construction of this oddity?
