On the way from Sledmere - Waggoners Monument worth seeing to Rudston "hill" bagging. Spy the trig on the OS, what a great little find. Enigmatic view of the Wolds in the little tangle of wild wood

Spotted it on the map so parked near the mast and traipsed through the wood, in totally inappropriate footwear I might add, thin soled fabric dolly shoes. The brambles did not add to the experience in any way whatsoever. I ended up with scratched feet, prickled legs and soaking wet, muddy shoes, This is the most depressing trig in the most depressing location, poor thing. Even 1/10 is generous. Walked back to the car cursing this hobby and my inability to pass a blue triangle and dot symbol without stopping to look for the damn thing.

Parked at mast then headed into trees following the GPSr and not listening to ones husband who had spotted the trig from the mast! 5 minutes later once I was actually looking rather than just following the arrow, the trig was quickly bagged. Got quite entangled in the brambles during the 5 minute detour.

Brambles not too bad in shorts if you aim a bit to the right to get through. Not much to be seen either.

Just glad I wasn't wearing shorts today as the brambles were very thick and still managed to penetrate my trousers leaving some painful scratches. I too parked next to the radio mast on the opposite side of the road and battled through the thicket to the edge of the field and the trigpoint. O/S website details the computing year as a more recent 1966 and the height a/s/l as 163.086 metres (535.06 feet).

I parked at a small pull-in just north of the crossroads. The brambles were a bit troublesome but not too bad.

Brambles not too bad as long as you take your time and pick a way through them carefully. Parked by the mast.

Not one to visit in the lush growing season. Battled through brambles and nettles from the road only to find the pillar covered by even more of them. The good news though was that it was still here and in relatively good condition too.

The FB number implies a relatively late addition. Just off the road; field side of a narrow strip of brambly woodland. Older OS maps show a footpath; gate posts at roadside opposite mast; path evidently diverted. The FB was part-buried; plug replaced, concrete discoloured. A bit below average. Revisted 26 May 2008 11:10 - no change.

Parked at entrance to mast, then csramble through brambles - probably easier to approach from the crematorium. Tarmac plug.

On the edge of a muddy arable field just through a small copse from the road with a good view of the adjacent crematorium.... Concrete or asphalt plug. S sighthole open, others closed. Embedded in brambles. Some views E but nothing special. Rain now stopped.
