Strange people obsessively collecting numbers, but enough about me. Not really like Great Shunner with it's wall trig (we drove out round the block and back again before we spied the trig). Plan had been to do Otley Chevin, fabulously awful hail clouds and a wild sky cancelled that. Travelling from Manchester up to Scarborough the leisurely way. Also see Bishop Wilton trig on the way - not logged because of my annoyance about the fence!

Trig with litter not included, see a red kite above the car park - one of the Harewood flock, must make a point of paying to get in there sometime as a thank you

A blink and you'll miss it Trig Point is this one. I walked past it first time due to being more concerned about the airport security Land Rover at the time. But after retracing my steps, there it was, in between the fence and wall. Didn't manage to get the number on the Flush Bracket as it was facing the other way which would have meant scaling the fence - which I certainly wasn't prepared to do with the airport security about! A grim day for the first day of the year, bagged this Trig after bagging the Trig at near by Billing Hill after walking up from Horsforth railway station. Another two Leeds Trig Points bagged! You can follow a detailed write up of this walk by typing Fell Finder into Google and looking under the Leeds and District Walks section. Thanks.

Parked on waste ground which did seem like an unofficial dumpit site as well as unofficial viewpoint for the airport. Pillar is in surprisingly good condition and now built in to the N outer wall of the reservoir compound. Beware of deep potholes, it may be better to park by the entrance on Baydon Lane. Views good, especially of planes taking off and landing, as appreciated by others in parked cars.

Visited this spot god knows how many times as an aviation enthusiast over the last 40 years, but even though I have been logging trg points for several years failed to note this one or photograph it!! Rubbish is a major issue here due to nearby Fish and Chip takeaway and in considerate people. Trig Point itself is walled in on one side, fenced in on other. Gave average rating due to rubbish and fact its boxed in, good spot for watching aircraft from though.

Parked at the motel in Yeadon and walked up. Area very muddy, with a few plane spotters around, looks like people use area for 4x4 rallying despite warning notices. I actually felt cool being a trig bagger today, which of course we are. Trig in good condition, nearly missed it as it forms part of the wall at the compound now. No access issues but if you want to see the flush bracket it faces into the compound so you would have to get over the fence to do so.

Easily found trig, next to the wall in the gateway to the Yorkshire Water compound. This sad little trig sits in a most depressing place, however the views over Leeds/Bradford aiport do go a little way to make up for it, if you're plane spotter that is, which most of the other occupants of the car park seemed to be.

A good site for plane spotting (or wrecking your suspension if you arrive by motor vehicle). Pillar forms end of stone wall and you need to climb barbed wire fence to view flush bracket. Stark contrast between the location of this pillar and the one at Billing Hill, which is less than 1 km away.
