Asked permission from the very obliging farmer at Eccles Farm, who recommended using the farm track that starts next to the letter box at the road junction. Great views for 270 degrees, most impressively tonight of the distant Welsh hills.

Went to Eccles Farm as suggested,twice,in between Nicky Nook visit,no answer.Walked up PROW at Sullom Side to Sullom wood.Over gate on right,following edge of wood to trig.No one will see you as you are out of site,unless farmer is in field!!Trig is in excellent condition,original plug,sight holes open.Even the cows cant get to it,due to electric fence.Think you can see the centre mark,but never seen one before.Excellent 360 deg views.
