Guided visit by the wee son after getting permission from farmhouse. Trig is hugged by some farm machinery.

3/8. Accessed by calling in at the farm to obtain permission, fortunately a bit of activity going on in the farm yard and eventually the old farmer turned up and after brief discussion realised what the request was. He guided me up the yard past the dogs with log chains proceeding to tell me about one his dogs helping itself to some chaps trousers and how he had offered up funds to help purchase a new set. (not sure if the victim was a fellow trig bagger - not checked the logs) Much discussion then lead to the inevitable question - when was the trig put there, where is the Clochandighter when you need him !! - offered up early fifties which seemed to be accepted. Gladly accompanied to the gate into the field in which the trig is sat - 5 mins to go and log GR, gather FB number and get the photos for a quick return to discuss farming today, very pleasant to spend 1/2 hour talking to the farmer .

Permission from friendly farmer which is more than can be said for his dogs which were thankfully tied up. Had a slight chip taken out of the top (looked recent)

Last trigpoint on a walk from Heage. Chatty old farmer still about together with half a dozen barking dogs allowed access through gate up to the trigpoint. Good views all round. The trigpoint was being used to support a fence post pile driver or is the first reported case of a trigpoint theft in progress. Surprised to be the first log since my mate CURRYSCRIM in Oct 2008. (at least I got here before mrs moo cow!)

3/3 today on a Heage circular walk. Accessed from the road via a path and across a couple of fields. Very good views on a superb walking day. Rather wished we had asked the farmer as he sounds a nice chap but only read this afterwards.
