Easily accessed from Southern Upland Way. Views peppered with pylons but a trig's a trig! :)

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Two consecutive numbers out of two... In a quarried cattle grazing field just off a small road,a nd as I found out later the Southern Upland Way. I went in through the shelterbelt. Intact and good condition, cattle polished.

Built 23rd March 1953 as a tertiary station in Block NT72 (Jedburgh). Pillar VGC. Spider retains OS centre plug with deep stamped lettering. Flush bracket faces southeast. LHS sighting hole open, front part poked open, others plugged. On an unused grassy area just off the Southern Upland Way, also very near unclassified public road. Views to Dabshead Hill and Boon Hill. Originally visited 10/85, revisited and photographed 31/07/2004, GRP.

Just a few yards from the roadside. On the Southern Upland Way, so no access problems.

Just off the Southern Upland Way, this pillar is in a not very interesting location, with an electricity pylon nearby. Not the best.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 20th March 1953 costing 13.17s.9d. In 1955 the flush bracket was levelled for height. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T104 in the Jedburgh secondary block in 1957. The trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1985. FB S7408 is the last in a sequence of 33 consecutively numbered flush brackets in this Secondary Block. FB S7409 is in Nairnshire.
