Parked in the lay-by on the north side of the A171. Would have been easier to park on the south side at NZ 70194 12077. Walked on the track south to the point where it crosses track to the east – then through heather south to the trigpoint. Another remote North York Moors trigpoint. Good views all round including Freeborough Hill.

For this one, there’s easy parking at the eastern end of the track where the road turns a corner. From there it’s about a 1 mile, fairly level walk along the track and then a couple of hundred yards across the moor to the pillar. If you have a 4x4, you could probably drive to the closest point on the track but you’ll need some serious ground clearance as the tyre ruts are very deep in places. A couple of off-road motorbikes came along while I was walking and they seemed to be having fun. The pillar, located on a small rise, is in good condition with all the metalwork in place. You can see a long way in all directions but the flat(ish), heather covered moor isn’t exactly a spectacular view.

Appalling weather so was tempted to try the byway - despite the 'Not Suitable' signs. Got the car about 400m with several bangs below before I found somewhere flat enough to turn round. A saving of 800m. And now I read the earlier logs. Doh!
