Verge parking near mast access track. Took that track to its end, then good grass track to trig. Pillar retains an original centre cap, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole left unplugged for drainage, RHS plug virtually all gone so that sight hole is also now open; FB is of the 'BSM' type. There is a memorial plaque afixed to the front face, above the FB. Extensive views.

Bit of a sodden day and I'm going to blame it for my week long cold...fine spot. Off to Shilbottle trig then Warkworth afterwards.

Walked up access track for Com's Mast then turn onto quad track towards trigpoint. Nice easy one to start the day off. Crossbills it trees on edge of wood near mast.

Ample parking on roadside near Shepherds Law. Walking SE on the bridleway for less than 400m leads into open access land and a slight uphill to this trig point. Dedication plaque still intact on this pillar. Great views. 50mins there and back.

21/03/18 (Second Visit) An excuse (as if one was needed) to exercise the dogs, their vets being within sight from the TP in Powburn, while I was happy to reconfirm my original opinion - this is a lovely little hill with superb views. 18/04/16 - A grand little hill with cracking views all round. Easy ascent, gravel track steeply up 80m or so and the final walk up to the top from the radio mast is over well cropped grass and was remarkably dry after recent wet weather. On a day of perfect air clarity the views were superb.

Great all round views. Access is easy but a little strenuous - park at the bottom of the track to the mobile mast and walk up the track past the mast to the trig point. N 55 26.267' W 001 51.794' Has attached plaque: IN LOVING MEMORY WILLIAM JAMES BROWN 1912 - 1994

After driving up from Coventry and stopping in various locations this was my first stop in Northumberland and what a fine hill this is. Walked up the track from the south and then along the path. Called in on the geocache on the way down.

Double visit location as was able to log the neraby geocache on the same visit. Open access so pillar is easily acessible and highly visible on its hill top location. Pillar in good condition and has a memorial plaque attached to it. Some wonderful views from this elevated location. Found another bagger just leaving as I arrived.

Done as an add on to one of Derek Purdy's Northumberland Mountain Bike routes - a 12 mile ride to get 3 miles from Powburn. My son refused to let me go up the other trig near the route! The sun, the fine views and the scent of the heather almost paid for the dreadful summer we have had. Memorial plaque on pillar.
