Bagged this one on the way home from work, with it being only a 20 min walk from home. The first red painted trig Point Ive found too! Pathetically, I found it quite hard to locate due to the trees surrounding it, and the fact it isnt at the highest point of the hill. I ended up resorting to my GPS to locate it in the end. Views are not exactly breath taking, but you can make out the high point at Rawdon, and the mast at the airport. Fantastic view of the ring road!

The layby on the sports centre road would have worked but I parked in the Homebase car park over the road. Not hard to find at this time of year, head into the wood from the layby and once you come across a path of sorts you should see the trig above - if you look for a broken wall shown on the OS map it's there! Wonder who painted it? I like it though, maybe not for the moors and mountains but pretty cool here. Nice to be alone in this urban area, gonna give this a 6 cos it was an enjoyable bag and a bit unusual too. Into April then.....

What kept you? No two are the same...

Very difficult to locate without the aid of a GPS. Virtually hidden in a mass of bracken. Situated in knoll of woodland and scrub with innumerable dog walker paths none of which lead to the pillar! If you like your pillars in red then this is the one for you. Once the bracken had been trampled down I found the pillar to be in a very good state apart, that is, from the garish red pain. Virtually no view as the bracken was above head height.

I can only concur that this is hard (and will get harder) to find. You may just chance upon it easily, so good luck to you. I took the path next to the school up to the wooded summit. There is a path that runs around it and from here you can find the two collapsed walls to the west. The trig is along one of the walls. Good luck to you!

My embarressment is overwhelming (see my July offering further on). Determined to find the trig today no matter how long it took after 2 previous abyssmal failures. Took all of 2 minutes !! ted's photo helped - had passed within 20 feet of it before and missed it. The Trig has been resurrected from the foilage by, well - me - and is far more visible (until summer 2006). -- : -- The following is my July 2005 log -- : -- I'll be buggered if I could find it! Came up from the Ring Road and wandered about a lot, noted what the previous visitors have said but, nope, it was unavailable to me today. The foilage was very high, maybe, maybe - perhaps I'm just crap - will have to return in the winter eh! This was supposed to be the first on a 20+ mile trig tigger, not the best of starts!!!!

The nearest trig point to home and, to date, the most difficult to locate, even though it is only 200 yards from the A6120 Leeds outer ring road. It is surrounded by shoulder high vegetation and young trees. Considering its urban location it is in surprisingly good condition. No graffiti or vandalism - probably because the local scallys cannot find it!

Its still there - hidden in the bracken. It will get increasingly difficult to find as the saplings grow. Plug replaced by plastic cover; one sighting-hole open. Generally in good condition for an urban trig.
