Now just outside the perimeter fence of an under construction housing development. If it goes beyond the currently fenced area it will swallow up the pillar. Still buried in a hawthorn hedge, in need of secateurs treatment. Access path heavy with mud and dog poo.

Short 400yrd walk up footpath from car park in housing estate, however deep mud and water logged fields made it feel much further. that said, the benefit of visiting in winter is that the Trig is at least visible in the hedge.

Found my way through residential streets to access to fields beyond and highest part of local area. Pillar not obviously in sight so enquired of a passing dog walker. he knew what I was after and took me DOWN HILL and out into fields where it is set into hedge.

Second trig of a walking day. Approached from S from footpath at 306 190 on A642. It's not marked on my Explorer 278 but footpath signpost is there, there's a number of these in the area. The trig is easy to find at this time of the year but views are best from the other side of the hedge, the W side.

Approached from Airedale Heights to the N, from where there are much better views than the trig itself. In E side of hedge (but pretty overgrown at this time of year); all s/holes below ground, plastic cap, and much noise from the adjacent wet M1, but otherwise in vgc.

This has been on my 'To Do' list for quite a while now and today was to be the day. I parked in the housing estate to the east and simply followed paths to the trig. Quite easy to locate at the moment but maybe a little more difficult when the hedge is in leaf. Appears to be in good condition but the original plug has been replaced by a plastic one.

Got to disagree with last two fellas - great views. I parked near to Carr Lodge Park and followed fields to cross the M1 on the footbridge. The trig is on a path and easy to find in a hedgerow. Woolley Edge looks good from here, as does Sandal Castle. The water tower to the south east is Upton Water tower, near where i live. The M1 looks like a Scalextric man! You can return under the M1 through Ossett Spa to the park again. A good end to the years trig bagging if thats it. Here's to next years adventures.
