(1020) Had my eye on this one for a while now, and as I had a day in Leeds for the Thought Bubble Comic Con, an early start before proceedings kicked off meant I could tick this off the list, along with a few others. Parked up down Potternewton View, and walked across the playing field to the pillar. Road busy, but still fairly early so nothing too major. I was 'beeped' by a passing car (I must add, I wasn't stood in the road at this point!) as I took photos - a local trigbagger saying hello, or just something thinking 'Look, there's another one of those weirdos!' :-)

4 of 4 Had an interesting time with this one. You may not find reading this relevant, but I've realised my logs are my 'diary', for me to read when I'm ancient and no longer able to trighunt, hopefully that's years away. Spotted the trig in its unusual position on the way up to Tunnel How trig. Came back and parked on Potternewton View N of the playing fields, took the FP across to the trig and bagged it. Good views of Leeds in the S. Strange 'guided busway' tracks on the main road, never seen them before. On the way back were a group of dads with their kids zooming around on quad bikes, all of them reflecting the ethnic diversity the area. Got some good chips and 'scraps' from the nearby Drakes fish and chip shop. While crossing the road to the chippy, a quad bike and zoomed across on a 'wheelie', hit the kerb and flipped over sending the bloke flying. He was ok, more concerned with his sunglasses which flew off too. I sat eating the chips watching the quad bikes. Nearby is a converted windmill, no vanes with a chimney stack added.

Went onto bag the Trig in wonderful Halton Moor too a bit later on. Good weather, but freezing cold wind blowing today across Scott Hall.

Love this hobby! One minute you are snowbound on the Pennines at Hoylandswaine next minute on an undercover inner city mission in Leeds! Nearest trig to my usual workplace and needing a bag I drove out of the City noting the climb as I drove north on the A61. Parked in Potternewton ave and walked back round, nonchalantly tigging the trig as I pretended to simply cross the busy road. Took a pic but the cars put my off and my flash seemed to freak them out - it didn't come out and I weren't hanging about. That's 25 trigs done now.....

Easily accessible. Situated on the central reservation of a dual carriageway road A61. In an excellent state of repair being such a good target for vehicles. Expansive views across the city of Leeds if you like that sort of thing. Could be dangerous to reach at busy times traffic seemed to be exceeding the speed limit.
