Parked on Weynor Gardens, took RoW south, then over well-defined tracks through fern and bracken and up steep escarpment to trig. Seems to be open access land. Pillar found on W side track in small area of cleared woodland. Cap missing, asphalt plug; all sight holes were sealed but RHD plug 90% now degraded. No views.

Followed the footpath from the south and just after the highest point there is a well-defined track (October) up through the fern west to the crest. Pillar found straight away in a small clearing at the crest.

This looked easy on the map, the path at the base of the hill is almost lost in bracken this time of year and there was no obvious route up to the summit, with hindsight the route I took back would of been a better approach. Go up then along from the footpath not along and then up! Pillar good condition no views at pillar, nice heathland walk back along the ridge.

Took a circuitous route to the trig as no visible footpath. Opened a little near trig but no views to be had. Trig in good condition. As is always the way found a better way down!!

Kelling Heath. Part of the Holt/Cromer Ridge, a 'Glacial Outwash Plain' and the best example in England.

Not an easy route, plus wet and nasty. As said in previous logs not a place to hang about too long.

They must have known we were coming!!!! The area immediately around the pillar had very recently been cleared back to expose it - I very much doubt we would have found it if not!! Unfortunately there are no views at all, but we wonder if it is a 'work in progress' and they will be reinstated

I approached from the footpath to the E of the pillar. This is not a good idea as one has to scramble up a very steep bank and then forage in the undergrowth to find the pillar. Probably easier to approach across the heath from the W. Ashphalt plug replacement. Traces of paint. Sightholes closed. No views at all due to encroaching vegetation.

Managed to find this on our 2nd attempt having given up a couple of years ago.The area around here does not make you want to stay very long, i think the glue sniffers and wineos have moved in. Views were nonexistent.

Hi, I'm Big Fish and I am the main Trigpointer and Geocacher from the Fishteers. I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, I am logging the find on the same day that I found it with the Fishteers.

Found this time while doing nearby cache "Tricky Trig, GC1805G" Trig pillar is now hidden, a few years ago there where very good views eastwards up the coast. The covering overgrowth is of blackthorn, giving lots of sloes in the autumn.

I approached along the footpath from the south but went well past the position of the pillar on the top of the hill without seeing a way up through the undergrowth. Eventually a route up became visible, suiting walkers coming from the north, but still not very easy.

Bagged on a circular walk from Sheringham to Weybourne with Mogs & the boys. Amazingly I found this without a GPS buried in thick, spikey overgrowth. No view but plenty of cuts and scratches. Charlie nearly trod on a snake nearby!

without GPS this would have been undiscoverable--in thick brambles and scrub with only the faintest path nearby---it was dusk too on the blasted heath!

spot the trig! covered in brambles, been a long time since a theodolite mounted this!
