Parking and route as per Nick&Rosie, with the exception of that once through the fourth gate I headed straight to the trig field gate.

Parked by the wonderfully named Needless Hall Moor and followed bridal track ROW due south through 4 gates before turning W to follow a fence up to a dry stone wall and followed that S to a gate that leads directly into the field with the TP in it. A bright and blustery day with good visibility although this is an unassuming TP with no views of any real note, the Simonside Hills to the NW being the only real point of interest. A pleasant enough stroll but not one I'd bother to revisit in a hurry...

Approached via bridleway from Needless Hall. Didn't approach pillar to avoid damaging hay-crop which looked ready to cut.

Down at Shaftoe Crags again. This trig was included in a convoluted route back to the A1.

Situated about 400yds W of bridle path from Needless Hall Moor to Temple Thornton. Convenient gate in stone wall is landmark from that side. The rainy summer has not helped the condition of the ground for MTB purposes. Saw a nice rainbow out to the E of the TP.
