Clearly visible on brow of hill, silhouetted against low sun, rather lovely. In middle of young tender crop so didn't try to get to it.

03/05/17 (2nd Visit) A morning spent chasing down the few remaining TPs I still had to bag in the north of the county, the superb weather reminded me that this TP was worth a revisit...07/11/16 (1st Visit) A few weeks ago we visited the wonderful stone circle at Duddo, about a kilometre to the west of this TP but hidden from view from here by a small plantation. The weather that day was as balmy as this one was stormy, so I know there are great views from this TP - I just didn't capture them today. A return visit will be required, at least its not a difficult or arduous TP to get to!

Parked in field entrance and walked across recently harvested ground straight to the trig.

From bend in road to E, vague intermittent tracks in crop field to wood, along the side of this, all tracks lost about 25-30m from trig when trig top visible but further progress would result in crop damage.

Mattilees Hill The trig, buried in heavy crop.

Quick tramp across a recently harvested muddy field in driving rain which limited the views. Handy parking area at open field entrance to the north east.

In the middle of a planted field, route in and out very carefully trodden along tractor lines. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces east, ~88. Vented through west sight hole. Open outlook in most directions, skyline to ESE broken by nearby plantation.

Luckily much of the oil seed rape had been harvested giving clear access. Cloudy Cheviot view.

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 28th April 1951 costing 14.5s.3d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NT86/8 within the Berwick block during 1953. Levelled for height in 1971. Last maintained by the OS in August 1978. SITE VISIT: Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. In the middle of an arable field, so considerate route via tramlines should be taken to avoid crop damage.
