quick nip over the fence to the few yards to the pillar,no police today but given the fact that Trump has just exploded one of the biggest bombs in history,they might be needed elsewhere,time to bag a few more trigs before ww3.

As soon as I got my camera out a police vehicle pulled up to ask what was going on. They seemed a little incredulous at the explanation but were happy enough and left us to it. As we departed the police car was waiting a little further down the road and stopped us to get driver details. Didn't fancy the trespass with all the police activity. This is a high security trig!

HISTORY: Pillar completed 4th April 1955 costing 15.13s.6d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SE38/T112 during 1955. Levelled for height in 1975. Last maintained by the OS in September 1986. SITE VISIT: Approached from southeast. Parked by south side of road at SE208579. From road, one gate hop leads into trig pasture.Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with raised large narrow letters. Flush bracket faces WSW, ~257. Three horizontal sighting holes open, SE face plugged, innards blocked with debris. 180 panorama spans clockwise from WSW to ESE. Police checked my ID matched my car Reg details. All on friendly terms. I am happy to be checked, I have nothing to hide. They're used to meeting trig baggers exclaiming that I was not the first.

Logged as a 'drive-by' which I have done literally hundreds if not thousands of times. Also the nearest Trig to my house but due to its close proximity to Menwith Hill I'm loathe to park-up and actually hop over into the field even though its only twenty yards or so from the road. Might walk-up at dusk sometime.

Parked on verge in Menwith Hill Road and hopped over gate. The security must have been on a break as I spent quite a few minutes photographing pillar, admiring scenery to North etc. Back to car, drove past main gate and parked in next road to study map before driving back past main gate. Really disappointed in the lack of response from the SWATS !!

Easily accessible and visible. Can be seen from road outside Minwith Hill Camp. Needed to climb the gate to get to it but was not challenged either by the camp or the nearby house. Good views to the north and east. Pillar in good condition with original plug with raised lettering. Could only get to three holes all of which were open.

In a field near the road that runs past the slightly controversial US/NATO listening post on Menwith Hill. Not much to reccomend this trig point except for the nearby large 'golf balls', which are worth a look.
