Have driven past this one many times in the past without realising it was there! Bagged en route to Linton Hill but prob should've done them the other way round weatherwise lol. Decent views for such a low-lying trig.

Dramatic skies...

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 14th March 1953 costing 17.11s.0d. In 1954, flush bracket S7389 was levelled for height. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T105 in the Jedburgh secondary block during 1957 and was last maintained by the OS in September 1986. Roadside job.
