There's a gap in the wall close to the trig where it can be accessed from.

Final of 8 TPs bagged today. Sadly it seems like it might just take one more big juggernaut to go thundering past this roadside TP and it'll shatter into dust...

Parked in the quarry entrance to the NE. Some grass was growing out of the hole in the side of the trig so I removed it. First time I've had to garden the inside of a pillar!

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there in the condition previously described.

Roadside trigs are just the ticket on a wet morning. It's in a bit of a state condition wise.

Doesn't appear to have deteriorated based on the previous reports. Didn't have to get the boots on for this one.

Having driven past three times earlier in the week, I feared stopping adjacent on the busy road. Not one car on Friday - because lots of yellow signs announcing road closed half mile further east. Such good luck !

Not in good condition but still shaped like a trig point. I parked to the nowth in a field entrance than walked down parallel to the wall but inside the field. That made viewing the FB easy. Could be my first true Scotish trig point!

On field side of the wall and about same height as the wall - almost hidden in tall undergrowth at this time of year

Oh dear as previously noted this one is in a terrible condition. Chunks out of it and a nasty crack right through it. The concrete is also breaking up around the spider. Easy roadsider behind a wall with a handy gateway a few meters to the east. FB plate faces into the field and was partially buried.

Located behind roadside wall on edge of arable field. Pillar cracked through near top, possibly a strike by farm machinery. Spider retains OS plug with deep indented lettering. All sight holes buried. FB faces SE ~149. Secondary station in Block NT86, Berwick. Completed 9th May 1951. Limited panorama to Sweethope Hill, Peirs Knowe, Hedgehope Hill, Cheviot. Nearest safe parking in field entrance at NT849480. First visited 24/06/1995. Revisited and photographed 25/09/2007, GRP.

It is easy to drive by and fail to notice the top of this pillar just peeping over the top of the wall. Best to drive by in a tall 4 X 4! I thought the damage was more than slight. My picture of the FB was blurred so I have not uploaded it.

A wee bit of digging required to reveal flush bracket. Walked from Kelso to bag this one, then walked back to Kelso. Bagged three wall FBs enroute, G2044, 1422 and 1530.
