Ample parking followed by a very easy walk of about 400m along a grassy track. Pillar located north side through a gate.

Early evening walk up lane from B6348, pillar clearly visible in moorland field. All intact, fading white paint, plug is metal but no lettering so presumably a replacement. Lovely location, where a pillar should be! Great views all round.

Drove up the track from Wooler that passes by the football and cricket pitches to a small car park where another track comes down from the odd shaped radio mast (it looks like someone started to build a space rocket but gave up). Followed a green lane SE past Coldmartin Loughs and a plantation of silver birch trees to a junction of 4 tracks and a footpath, turned half left then half left again to follow another green lane up to a right turn where the TP is very obvious beyond a barbed wire fence, however there is a kissing gate through the fence allowing access to the TP. A path not shown on the OS Explorer heads W from the TP to another gate and then meanders down to the compound around the radio mast, before dropping back down to the car park. A pleasant and undemanding stroll, worth repeating on a clearer day to take full advantage of the decent views from the TP.

Walked up from Wooler. Common sense has prevailed here and a gate has been provided to access the trig. Good view of Hedgehope Hill & The Cheviot.

Managed to park at the nearby mast and followed the green lane to the south east then a marked footpath to the pillar. Great weather although mist spoiled the view west to the Cheviots.

St Cuthbert's Way #6: detour in search of cup and ring rocks and also found a trig! Foggy so views undetermined - except for a very odd shaped comms mast looming out of the mist. All s/holes except NW open; metal cap no lettering (a first for me); vgc overall.

You can take the trig out of Lanarkshire but you cannot take the Lanarkshire out of the trig! Ref FB No. Second visit. For GPS reading and photographs. SITE VISIT: Easily reached on foot from Wooler. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS cap with no lettering. Flush bracket faces south, ~188. Vented through three sight holes, north side blocked. Debris inside. Open view limited to a 220 panorama, nearby woods block the remainder.

Good path leaving St Cuthbert's Way at NU01318 28437, which joins ROW W/E across Weetwood Moor. On reaching this obvious path, turn left for a few yards and then right at NU01357 28193 on a path that leads direct to trig through two gateways.

Approached from Wooler direction by driving up to the end of the metalled road near the mast and walking from there. It was quite busy up along the lane with logging going on and the farmer ploughing. We were all making the most of the fine autmn weather by the looks of it.

You can take the trig out of Lanarkshire but you cannot take the Lanarkshire out of the trig! Ref FB No. I had previously expected to find S3584 in South Lanarkshire. Pillar built 30th November 1945. Tertiary station in Block NZ29, Newcastle. Trig pillar still in good condition, but the spider no longer retains an OS cap. BsM flush bracket has a faces southwest. Easily reached on foot from Wooler. Visited and photographed 5/08/1997, GRP.
