Parking to the south then along the now dead end lane - Pillar is located on the field side (see Rick Trig image) - slight damage to the top edge - I think this site will be developed in the not too distant future, be intersting to see if it survives.

I'm not an expert but what an effort to find this one at this time of year. Trig behind hedge, hidden in a field full of long grass, thistles and nettles.

Again...trig in a hedge...lots of development around but still there...no views unless you like urban sprawl and planes coming into Newcastle airport.

Pillar looks in danger of being lost as the land right next to it is being developed. The whole area was a muddy mess!

The Sage building is more impressive than the trig position in this instance. Nipped into the scrubby field to get to the flush bracket.

Top nibbled somewhat on the North, South sighty open, encrouaching developments to North and West.. adjacent farmgate (to South) swings viciously in high winds, mind how you park! NY-NZ-NT-NS continues ;-)

Middle Brunton West Farm a bit nibbled.

Taken on a 30 mile bike trip with Brunton Bridge and Brenkley Hill. It was beginning to rain. The modernistic building across the field is the world HQ of Sage, a provider of accountancy software.

This one gave me a bit of trouble (wrong end of the day maybe).I found it after talking to a local bloke. He had spotted my car at the side of the road and thought it had been abandoned.The pillar is in the hedge and easy to find if you are looking from inside the field (and in the right place).

Followed the road from Brunton Bridge Farm to this trig. As previously said it's on the north side of the hedge and roughly between 2 telegraph poles on the brow of the hill. Currently there's a space in the hedge (not really a gap) where you can bully through approx 25 yards west of the trig.
