Approached (cycled) from Salter's gate. Pillar, which stands on a large plinth, has a fairly rough surface finish & two minor chips. Spider has OS metal cap. Spacious views - The Cheviot can be seen. No Oxen today.

6th pillar for today. Accessed from byway to East. Wide all round views. Arrived by road from East and able to leave by track to West to join Waskerley Way cycle track on old railway line, and to YHA at Emundbyers.

NZ070457, LR88. HISTORY: Pillar completed 27th June 1947 costing 6.8s.0d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NZ29/40 within the Newcastle block during 1947. Recomputed as same in 1984. Levelled for height in 1957. Last maintained by the OS in June 1971. SITE VISIT: Parked on wide east verge of north leg of junction at NZ071453. Followed mapped tracks then along edges of fields. Pillar on north side of fence, completed 27th June 1947 costing 6.8s.0d, still in good condition. Must have had a serious erosion problem given the substantial briezeblock foundation added around the base of the pillar. Spider has replacement OS centre cap with raised larger narrow letters. Flush bracket faces 350 (N). Vented through east sight hole. 360 panoramic view. S4107 photographed 21/05/2011, GRP.

Outside the open access land so a bit trespassy. However its only a quick wander up the fence line from the track to the east. Nice views all around.

Plug with raised lettering; one sighting hole open. A few butterflies about but none of the scarcer species suggested by the notice board at roadside disused quarry to S.
