Located within 50m of a stone wall. This field is currently habited by fat inquisitive lambs. The late afternoon summer sun lights up this pillar, enhancing the quality of visit to a rather ordinary semi urban trig point.

Cycling day out. Pillar has small chip on a top edge & minor chips elsewhere - overall condition good - spider is plugged (conc?). Set in pasture - some ground erosion - no animals about. Good views S to SW.

Handy parking just the other side of the high wall. Doubled back and took the plantation-edge track to the first gate to gain access to the cattle-free field.

Parked in small carpark in Brancepeth then road and footpaths from south up towards Pithouse and trig . Great walk up in all the snow and drifts.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 21st August 1947 costing 5.3s.6d. computed as secondary triangulation station NZ42/24 within the Middlesborough block during 1948. Refixed as same in 1984. Levelled for height in 1964. Last maintained by the OS in April 1986. SITE VISIT: Parked in layby on unclassified road to north. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces 171 (S). All sight holes open, innards filled with debris. Views limited to SW quarter only, otherwise trees on skyline. 3m further south and this trig would have been on LR93 rather than LR88. Photographed 21/05/2011, GRP.

Pleasant enough location, a hundred yards the wrong side of a wall. Situated next to a remarkably busy dead end road... Woodland blocks any views to the north.

a damp day, still good views due west towards the windfarm and south where the dark stormy cloud base was at the level of the trig point.

Trig point with the view to the south of the dark rainy English summer!

Called whilst visiting relatives nearby. Visible and accessible by climbing wall but a quite easy drive to. Some extensive all round views from this elevated, in relation to the area, position. Pillar is in good condition with asphalt plug.

Arrived at trig as a fabulous winter sun was setting (see photo)! The wide views were eerie and spellbinding. A wonderful experience shared with Bergfuehrer. Asphalt plug.

Cunningly visited on Works Outing bike ride round Durham railway paths - never mind that the tracks were at the bottom of the valley and TP was at top of hill ! I had the map. Scorching day for April but shame about the haze. How come this TP has survived the opencasting where others have not, or was it put back in place ?

My first trig although quite an easy one as I live in the area and it is easy to see from the road. Brisk evening but nice views.
