Parked near Foresters Lodge then walked across dam wall. The footpath heads up very steeply to the Backhouse Bank farm then to the byeway on the ridge which we followed to the trig.

Walked from Wolsingham with friend up E side of Waskerley Valley to reservoir then up track to old railway line. South down green way on W side of valley taking in TP. Good walk, fabulous weather, excellent views.

A re-log of our closest trig-point to home (apart for the Wolsingham FBM). Walked up the Waskerley valley from Wolsingham, across the Tunstall dam and on to the felltop. The trig isn't at the highest point; it's placed on a stone platform in the peat for stability ?the remains of an old building or prehistoric cairn.... but nothing in the historic environment record to confirm this. Beautiful view up Weardale. A rather boggy return home via Thistlewood Lane.

Visible and easily accessible. Just off public footpath. I walked up from Wolsingham and then dropped down to Tunstall Reservoir which made it into a lovely walk. Pillar in good condition with plastic plug. Some lovely all round views of the surrounding area.

This is the closest trig to home -- Reservoir House (on Tunstall Reservoir) -- and I visit regularly... ;-) If you log this one, then drop in for a cup of tea (or if you prefer, a wee dram)!

Lovely brisk walk up from Tunstall Reservoir. Very windy on top and the rain stung my face (it was not raining all the time) Fantastic views all the way across to my cache at 'See The Windmills Turn'

A trig point surrounded by heather, sadly past its best now, but a lovely day and a lovely walk from Wolsingham and around Tunstall reservoir which is very low.
