Just the same as A1 just without the snow.

Theme of the day is continuing; ankle deep mud, snow and very boggy. Parked just by the gates. The horses have churned up the field so it is not very nice crossing to the trig but ho hum.

Easy parking at roadside. Fortunately just sheep in trig field, horses in neighbouring field.

Very easy to access from the roadside at Mosshouses. The closest I've ever been to a wind turbine, but better that than a pylon ;)

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Easy stroll from adjacent road. Pillar in good condition, better than the turbine next door which was making a loud grinding noise.

Excellent condition - just needs a coat of paint and it will be good as new. Easy access from the gate at the eastern end of the hamlet.

A detour from the southern upland way, and quite a pain to reach because I came directly from the path to the east. I dont recommend it. Electric fences to cross, wading through muddy fields and ducking under low branches in the nearby wood. It'd be best to come straight from the road. Pillar beside wind turbine.

A wind turbine was being installed right beside the pillar, which was hidden behind the builders van. Easy from just east of Mosshouses farm, along new track, with Alexander.

Approached from wrong field, so did not get right to the pillar. I am not going to start climbing shoogly dykes for this. Great condition and a view over to the Cheviot.
