quick walk down a muddy path, nothing to add to previous logs.

Decidedly soggy freshly ploughed potato field currently. Pillar lost to opencast mining 1952 apparently. Fair bit of concrete debris at handy pull in R side of road opposite start of path, obviously not trig related

No pillar, but a nice path and some views from site. On a Durham to Dorset walk, on a nice day's walk with friends.

Log 50, I made it! I had planned West Nab to celebrate the half century, but with companions at work I decided to go for a nearby solo invisible. Dedication you see, as ever. Royds Green as we know the trig has long gone, but it gave decent enough views of familiar sights - West Nab itself, Black Hill, Emley Moor, Woolley Edge, Ferrybridge, Garforth Cliff, Leeds Centre, Ilkley Moor...a clear day. Trig would have been SW of the diagonal path through the field, thought I saw an area where it may have been where the crop seemed less happy to grow, but I wasn't going to thrash through Farmer Biggies crop today. The 50 is satisfaction enough.

Log #64. (78m). Zilch. Nada. Nothing but fields. Swithens Farm must have decided they didn,t like a trig in the field, eh? Nice warm day today. Views are good considering elevation of only 80m.

Killed. Site has an uninspiring plateau-ish view of suburban Leeds and surrounding area. NCOF!

I have given it a point simply for being a nice cornfield. There is definitely nothing here.

Easy access along a well-marked footpath with open views - nothing there. Not marked on any of the OS maps that I've checked. OS Huddersfield Sheet 102 One-Inch 1954 edition marks this site as "Opencast Mining" so that was probably what did for it.

Not here
Not here either. Theres a nearby metal conduit cover with concrete surround which I checked for rivetty things but nothing.
