Roadside location; but no adjoining trees any more, not much in the way of views, and fast traffic hazards didn't endear me to this one.

Would suggest that attempting to park on or below the blind summit that the TP sits on along the B6318 is pretty foolhardy, the road is not only quite busy but very fast. We parked about quarter of a mile west of the TP at the end of the plantation where a gravel track gives access to the Hadrians Wall footpath. The walk back up through the wood is a short pleasant stroll, but the views from the TP itself are sadly restricted.

Parking is tricky here as the road is so busy, so we parked on a track about half a mile further west and walked back along the Hadrian's Wall Path which is set back from the road a little. After visiting the trig I saw the glint of a buried bottle. Thinking it may have been antique, we then spent 20 mins digging it up only to find it was a Newcastle Brown bottle!
