I know I've been to this one before, sometime in 2010, but no record of when exactly. This time was a quick dash up and down from Housesteads, and the purchase of an exorbitantly expensive bottle of water from the visitor centre on our return. Great views from the TP, no doubt about that.

Didn't think there was room to park at Moss Kennels. Asked at property @ NY813699 and very pleasant lady there had no problem if I parked at right angles to road, adjacent to house wall and track. Very grateful on a miserable wet afternoon. Sadly the two information boards along the Wall were illegible and falling apart.

Refusing to pay 4 to park in the nearly empty car park at Housesteads eventually managed to find a roadside park near to the Old Repeater Station. Followed the footpath directly to the pillar. Threatening skies to the west so didn't stay too long.

Fabulous views on offer from this trig which sits along the Hadrian's Wall trail. We logged this one whilst doing the walk and were lucky to be able to experience the scenery when there was good visibilty. The pillar has been repainted white at some point - including the cap! This paint has also unfortunately dripped over the flush bracket.
