Nice to see it's being well maintained. All Pillars should get a new coat of paint, there part of of heritage, ancient monument in their own right.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 27th September 1953 costing 15.15s.3d. Levelled for height in 1954. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SE38/T79 in 1955. Last maintained by the OS in February 1975. SITE VISIT: Approached from east. Parked on east verge, opposite gate at SE174829. Through gates following RHS of upmapped field boundary to top. Pillar in very good condition, immaculately painted in white gloss. Plaque affixed to NNW face reads "Yorkshire Volunteers 'C' Company Halifax". Spider retains original OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces ENE, ~105 along field boundary line. Southeast and northwest sight holes open. 247 open outlook spanning from northwest clockwise to SSW, remainder blocked by nearby woods. The strange building by the roadside seems to be a well disguised communications tower containing parabolic dishes.

Revisit. Pillar painted gloss white (blistering). Plug intact and a plaque has been added. Still no signs or notices on the odd roadside building. Sunny afternoon with good views across towards the North York Moors.

Just a few hundred yard from the distinctive Yorkshire Water (?) building on the Healey - Ellingstring road. Who's painted this Trig I wonder ??? In very good condition with original plug. Extensive views northwards.

Someone loves this one, shinny white gloss paint...no whitewash here! Rural location on the boarder between the arable land and start of the dales. Our guess as to the use of the odd buidling is something to do with communications, looks like a microwave communication tower and yep we've seen the one in Northumberland as well...sad or what!

Easily accessible (between fields) and highly visible (painted in white gloss paint). Like others I too parked near the strange building and then just followed the hedge line to the pillar. (Walking on the north edge of the field divide is best and prevents the need to cross a small wire fence.) Some lovely views from up here. It is just a guess and nothing more, but I wonder if the building is to do with a water pipeline that runs through the area.

Yorkshire. All round snowy views today. The trig is painted white with a gloss paint, which both seems to stand the test of time and act as the perfect camouflage on a day like today. Plug with deep indented lettering.

Just a comment about the nearby unlabelled building. It is not the only one! There is another near Haltwhistle in Northumberland at NY729610. I've uploaded pictures of both (sorry admin if this is not appropriate)

Unusual building near Sail Hill TP This building is near the Sail Hill TP. There are no signs to identify its purpose.
Another very similar building, also unidentified This building is on Plenmeller Common, south of Haltwhistle at NY729610. I used to live near there, and was mystified to its purpose. Now I\'ve discovered another with the peculiar bulbous grey panels. Any ideas what they are for? Are there any more?

There are lots of ups and downs hereabouts and I stopped at the wrong place initially. If I had looked at TUK first, I would have realised that the odd looking building is a useful roadside marker for this TP.

Plug intact; pillar an unusual colour. Couldn't figure out what the roadside building was hiding - elec/comms/waterworks usually have a notice with contact details but this one didn't.
