Historical interest, I discovered this old photo of Charlie High Range Tower before the newer building was erected, it shows I think a glimpse of the Trig Column through the scaffolding, any comments welcome.

Drove onto parking/assembly area, wandered about, took photographs, and left. Security cameras on control tower. Lovely warm early evening

Orienteering event to the west side of the C road. Had control just 175m away, tempted, but not tempted because red flags, continuous machine guns and thunderflashes (oh and many soldiers !). Left for another day.

Parked up opposite entrance. Barrier was raised but no-one around (as far as I could see!) Picked up GPS, phone/camera and my flag and headed in. GPS led unerringly to a painted smiley faced man in middle of concrete parking/assembly area (see photo.) Took some photos and walked out again. Given 7 for brass neckedness!

Hardstanding next to Range control tower. GR points to area called Misfire Pit, not sure if this is for the waste ordnance or for the operator of the weapon

In the area so drove up the road to the cattle grid to pay respects to a lost trig. Took a quick photo of the tower then departed. Not too bothered about getting up to the actual site as its been gone over 30 years & its unlikely to miraculously have reappeared....

Got within about 500m before deciding large numbers of army chaps and chapesses around made it not really worth the effort for a missing trig!

Drove past the site with a local who informed me we weren't aloud off the roadside. There were Army personel around so didn't venture out.

Westmorland. We chose New Year's Day as a quiet day on the ranges for this one. We got to the exact spot at Charlie High at 12 noon, a genuine timing. I wish all triggers could be persuaded to give accurate times.

2nd of 8 New Year's Day trig visits. No military personnel on this MOD site today though there were security cameras on the tower. Lovely views of Westmorland.

Large flat concrete hardstanding with tall building adjacent. Smallish concrete base in grass in approx trig location but not obviously trig related. No red flags: public road to Hilton open, and no-one about.

Pulled off main road and to see how close I could get first set of cctv cameras had me wondering red flag and second set left me calling it a day by the cattle grid. 25k shows observation tower at location (visible from road) 2500 scale mapping has no trig but I wasn't going to confirm it and spend time chatting to a red cap as a result
