Condition gets worse, cap now gone and spider very exposed. Who on earth would come all this way with hammers, chisels or whatever for this piece of metal? From Linhope on circuit of nearby hills.

Tudhope Hill The FB, still intact for the time being. Faces NE.

Parked in forestry track entrance. Followed track until almost the end and began the ascent where there's an excavation into the hillside. The first part of the slope has been recently planted so will become difficult in a few years time. Once out of the plantation it's just a slog over tussocky grass. Panoramic vew from trig. There's some recent damage to the top (with the debris scattered around the base of the pillar) and the spider is now exposed.

Parked in the old quarry to the south and took in the pillar on a circular route including Millstone Edge-Langtae Hill-Cauldcleuch Head-Muckle Land Knowe-Pennygant Hill and Stob Fell. Belting weather and terrific views of including The Lammamuirs-Cheviots-North Pennines-Lake District-Broad Law-Moorfoot Hills. Met the same farmer setting the corvid trap as the previous visitors.

Forestry mostly cut down--but replanted with young trees.Followed track to end then up fenceline. Interesting crow trap, man was restocking it with food (eggs) and water as we passed.

4 th TP in 3 days of walking the Watershed (there was a 5th that I couldn't find despite being very close). Challenging conditions both weatherwise and underfoot.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters, NE side of fence. Nice grassy summit, steep grassy climb from SE, a little boggy at start. Last of the day: dusk ascent, down in the dark.

First visit. Spider cap with indented lettering. The weather had just cleared up from earlier that day, hence the wet ground.
