Fifth of 6 today, straight-forward walk up field boundary from gate N of TP. TP badly undercut by livestock. Weird satellite dish contraption on scaffolding structure a few yards further along the hedgerow.

Quick assent from the N. Field full of frisky cattle which made me frisky on the return journey.

Best time of year to visit this pillar as the surrounding fields are full of colour including the red/brown of the local soils in the ploughed fields and the yellow of the oil seed. Great spot this in the Tweed valley with 360 views. Rarely give an 8/10 for a lowland pillar but this is the Borders at its best.

Enjoyed the good views across to the Eildon Hills from this trig, but didn't enjoy our encounter with a scary herd of stampeding cattle!

Easy wander up the fence line from the road to the west. Lovely views over towards the Eildons.

Original plug with deeply indented letters. SW and NE sight holes open. Traces of paint. Large concrete base exposed all round. It appears as if the plug might have been recently cleaned! Nice spot!

Platform exposed a few inches. From north, more of a climb than I'd expected before breakfast.

On the top edge on a grazing field. Pillar in good order although leaning back ever so slightly. Earlier repairs to pillar still holding good. Base has been extended to combat erosion caused by livestock, possibly the cause of the lean. Left and right sighting holes open, others plugged. Spider retains original OS centre plug with deep stamped lettering. Flush bracket faces northwest across grazing field. Arable land behind fence. Views to Smailholm, Dirrington Great Law, Sweethope Hill, Cheviot, Hownam Law, Peniel Heugh, Eildon Mid Hill, The Holmes. Revisited and photographed 7/08/2004, GRP.

The pillar was completed on 25th January 1954 costing 24.19s.0d. In 1957 this marker was computed as a tertiary triangulation station in Secondary Block NT72. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1958. This site was last maintained by the OS in August 1986. Original visit by GRP to record the FB number, 19/05/1990 .
