The 'Night Fold Field' is part of Alnmouth Common and is on land owned and managed by the 'Burgess Holders' of Alnmouth. When she was 6 years old the daughter of one of the Burgess Holders, whilst having a family picnic up by the Trig Point, announced to her parents that she 'wanted to get married up here'. Twenty years later a little girls dream came true... Congratulations to Teddi and Jack, and thanks to the Hall family for providing a truely magical evening on Saturday 23rd July 2016. Alnmouth's Trig Point now sports a brand new coat of white paint, and there is an improved hardcore gravel track up through the Night Fold up the R.O.W. at the bottom of Foxton Road. Furthermore, the Burgess Holders are looking into what they can do to repair the ground around the pillar where the horses have undermined it, though setting a 5 ton lump of concrete back to perpendicular again may prove a challenge too far. Moreover Alnmouth's Trig Point will provide some very happy memories for a lot of people who'd probably never even heard of Trig Points before this weekend!

Took the second (and less steep) PROW from the roundabout to the pillar beating the horses that tried to close in. Pillar undermined and leaning slightly to the north only noticeable when you look out to sea at the horizon. Decent views along the coast and nice beach, Popular with dog walkers so lots of dog mess.

Revisit. For photographs and GPS reading. Approached from west. Parked in Alnmouth, walked unclassified road north from roundabout, and followed mapped RoW east from NU246109 which crosses horse field. Trig is visible from high point on RoW, same field. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces NNE, ~24. Vented through SW sight hole. 300 panorama from NE clockwise through south to NNW. Dominating the skyline is the giant golf ball shaped air surveillance radome on Brizlee Wood.

I was really looking forward to this one. You know soaking up the scenery, maybe a picnic, but no it was surrounded by 3 massive horses!!! However a mans got to do what a mans got to do. I chased the biggest one away then logged the trig with the two little ones in attendance. You just have to show these animals who's boss. Having said that I touched the trig, took some photo's and legged it asap.

SITE VISIT: Trig pillar in good condition, but has its own moat. The surrounding ground has been eroded away by livestock and is filled with water. Spider retained original OS centre plug. One of two numerically outlying BsM Flush Brackets, also numerically the highest known BsM flush bracket and it is on the north face of the pillar. No access problems.
