Parked on B6278 road summit. Path along south side of fence to within 150m of trig, then crossed to faint path on north side. Terrain dry. A pleasant walk on a nice sunny day with good views.

Parked in lay bay on roadside and followed fence line west all the way to the trig point. Not too wet and the land owner has cut a path through the heather most of the way.

A long plod from Westernhope following the fence line. Fortunately blue sky and excellent visibility throughout the day. This trig is close to the fence.

Walked from Raven Hills Trig, over Monk's Moor, down to old mine workings then up via track to shooting house. Stone built pillar - a little squat - some re-pointing needed, but basically good condition. Views pretty good.
