Easily parked by the wood and walked up to the trig. In very good condition, glad the 2 fences protect it from the farmers flail.

Roadside parking and sign route for the Sandstone Way facilitates easy access to this recently painted trig point. A dedication plaque has fallen off this pillar. Pheasants in abundance.

Along byway in hedge, between 2 sets of barbed wire fencing. Came along path by woodland which was full of pheasants , very noisy and active at twilight. Pillar intact, white, adopted by JR Lawson and obviously cared for. Good views to S and N.

Easy bag from E. Shame about the recently added barbed wire fence in front of the trig.

Made two trips to this one in the space of two days - the first to visit and photograph it; the second, less than 24 hours later, was to retrieve the dogs lead that I'd left on fence post just by it. :-( Superb weather both days, although its position in the middle of a hawthorn hedge doesn't facilitate very good 360 degree views!

Passed by when returning to Wooler after a painful fall earlier on. Barbed wire a pain, but got a good view - white and intact!

Walked up green lane from east. Trig point sandwiched between 2 fences in hedge row. Paint still good and stands out well from a distance.

Approached from the east along the track. Generous field boundaries gave decent access. This adopted pillar is in immaculate condition with views to the Cheviots.

Walked up a very muddy track next to a forest. Trig looking very nice with a recent coat of white paint. On way back to the car saw a deer then watched a barn owl ferrying food back to a hole in a nearby tree.

Easy find on a nice wide track running alongside the field boundary. Still looking in good nick with its coat of white paint. Views to the East of Bewick hills which will be visited when we're back in this area as they have a couple of great hill forts and cup and ring marked stones. Great to be trigging at 5pm and its still light!

Visible and easily accessible. Field edge Trig on public footpath. An adopted trig point in almost pristine condition - how lovely to see. Blank plug. Flattish location so views were of rural nature.
