Although only a short walk from the minor road we needed the GPS for this one as due to the mist the visibility was down to 20 metres at times, also needed it to find our way back to the car. No views unfortunately.

Parked near the barrier and squelched over the boggy moor, firstly to the southernmost tumulus marked as 'Flat Howe' on the OS Explorer map, then to the northerly 'Flat Howe' where the trig is to be found. Very remote feel to the location.

The centre plug is missing but apart from that the pillar is in good condition ! Today me and Rocky the dog parked at the top of Blue Bank then walked a circular route of 9.5 miles first visiting the trig then Falling Foss waterfall and the Hermitage in little beck wood and eventualy walking into Sleights and back up Blue Bank to the parking area at the top of the Bank.

Looking at Whitby from Sleights Moor trig
Falling Foss Waterfall Its not so easy getting to the bottom of the falls but me and Rocky scrammbled down, getting up was hard work again.
The Hermitage Also on our walk me and Rocky visited the Hermitage in Little Beck woods.
Rocky Rocky in Little Beck Wood, seven miles into our 9.5 mile walk.
Rocky at Stepping stones Rocky at the Stepping stones at "Throstle Nest" nearly at the end of are walk.

Becomes a bit of a theme in the North Yorkshire Moors...Trig with a barrow or near a barrow or on top of a barrow! This little guy has 2, one on the way and one it hides behind (which has a ring of kerb stones). Odd but the trig isn't at the highest point it being the first barrow...only by a meter though.


pillar with adjacent kerb-stoned barrow

HISTORY: Pillar completed 10th July 1948 costing 16.14s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NZ42/T95 in 1948. Recomputed as same in 1986. Levelled for height in 1953. Last maintained by the OS, 7th February 1986. SITE VISIT: Approached from SSE. Parked near locked gate at NZ853044. Direct route across heather clad terrain to top. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar plug broken open. Flush bracket faces WSW, ~252. Vented through SW and NE sight holes, innards filled with debris. 360 open ootlook except where overtopped by adjacent mound to SE. Hint of GOMLism here. Access land but every possible roadside track gated right at roadside, hindering parking just off road.
