I'd been here before, but the gate was padlocked and I had both the dogs with me, so took a long range shot of the TP from the gate and decided to come back another time. Today was the day and lo and behold the gate was unpadlocked. Further bonus was the enormous mountain of manure has almost completely disappeared. Apparently it was used up by the Tory Party and the Labour Party between them for their manifestos in last weeks election. A very quick skip there and back over the muddy field nonetheless. Good views SE to the snow capped high ground of the N Yorks Moors.

Open spider. Manure heap nearby - could hear dogs barking (sounded not too far away), so I could not settle at trig - pretty quick visit.

Through the gate into the very muddy field. Intended to bag Woodland next but a muddy verge meant no parking so went on to Eggleston Moor instead.

A bit of a poor thing really, acheived on a 60 mile ride into the teeth of a howling gale. The view north over Hamsterly Forest was rather pleasant. The afore-mentioned ordure had at least dried !

Too many more people "hopping" over the wall to approach it will potentially cause serious damage. Please try approaching from the gate 100 yds up the road. Plug missing

Can be viewed from the road if you dont fancy climbing the wall - its only about a hundred yards from the road. No views to the north or west due to the forest.

No pride of place on a hill top for this sad little pillar. It's stuck between a wall and a dung heap in a small field, hidden from view unless you actually go looking for it. It's in reasonable condition I suppose but the centre plug has been removed leaving a hole in the top that will swallow an Etrex. The view east, over the wall, is the only one worth looking at.
