Located just a short walk from the Shoreswood Farm WW2 HFDF (High Frequency Direction Finding) Station, fascinating piece of history with lovely views over towards the Cheviot Hills and the Lammermuir Hills. Trig point in very good condition protected by high nettles <ouch>

Parked at a convenient layby. Walkers are welcome as indicated by a sign nailed to a post. Pillar located beyond the masts and east of the hedgerow.Gap in hedge allows easy access. The June summer growth half hides this trig. Approach has great views west to Eildon Hills. Interesting remnant of a WW2 tower base located next to the masts, where high frequency radio signals were exchanged. Sacked off walking to this tower as the cattle were clearly on guard.

20/02/19 - Second Visit. In the area with A, needed to take the dogs on a short walk and thought the short stroll up to the old RAF Signalling Tower would satisfy her thirst for history. Might have satisfied her more if it was a medieval priory, but the dogs got their walk and I got a TP re-visit! 21/02/17 First Visit - Easy find close to very interesting WW2 radio tower. Good and extensive views in all directions considering this TP is less than 100m above sea level. The views are best observed from the Radio Tower, which has a handy view finder in it!

A return to low hedge enmeshed trigs, sigh, still a fine view of the hills and there's a honey cake at Chain Bridge to be had later.

Access up track, well hidden in hedge past the radio mast. Very mossy but all intact. Good views to West. Near to base of High Frequency Directional Finder, used to guide planes back to base in WW II, very interesting information board. Worth visiting the trig just for this.

The track up the lane to the trig was a permissive path but has now closed, but a notice at the start of the track near the road states it's still welcomes responsible walkers.

Parked at the end of the track to the east. Decent track to the WW2 tower by the mast then over the gate to the pillar. Limited views due to the driving rain.

Handy parking at the old quarry just below the telecoms masts, then a couple of minutes walk up the track. A fascinating place with the old WW2 rf tower base a few yards away. Superb views from this trig.

FB guarded by nettles but apart from that an easy find. There is a stile over to the HF station and then a gate over to the scrub patch in which the trig sits.

vgc, metal cap deep letters. N side of track, just behind hedge nr its E end. Site of WW2 High Frequency Direction Finding station for guiding pilots home. Fine view, albeit not from trig. Noisy party ongoing at nearby farm.

I drove up the track to this one. Added interest is the nearby base of a former aircraft direction finding tower.
