Route as Borderer. Copse is now quite over grown, but at least the nettles are not that high due to the tree shade.

Good parking under large tree at NT926344. Used gate on W side of hedge - farmer has cut the field margin for easy walking. However, the trig is in the middle of a small copse full of nettles.

Whitton Hill TP is situated just above the village of Milfield. Milfield has a pub in it called the Red Lion. I've been to loads of pubs in England called the 'Red Lion', and the Red Lion Milfield is probably the worst one I've ever been to. Not only is it not dog friendly, it's not really people friendly either. Returning to Milfield to bag Whitton Hill I was struck how, like the local pub, I've visited loads of TPs but this one is one of the worst I've ever been to! Stuck in a scruffy little barbed wire protected coppice full of stinging nettles with no real views, overshadowed by the more impressive hills of Houseden Hill to the SW and Flodden Hill to the NW, I'd have scored this even lower if it wasn't for the fact we flushed out a Roe Deer as we made our way round the field edge, and it was a gloriously sunny day.

Parked at the start of the public footpath. Headed straight to the pillar across recently harvested ground. Did some gardening to remove encroaching vegetation.

Followed the signed footpath east (not as on the Landranger map) from the gate on the minor road to the south then a short walk to the small copse at the crest of the hill. Limited views.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS reading. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from south. Parked on verge, SW side of road at NT926344. Followed mapped RoW to edge of arable field then clockwise around field edges approaching trig from north. Trig in small wooded copse between fields. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces SSE, ~167. Vented through sight hole on FB face. Open outlook somewhat limited by surrounding shrubbery.

Taking the scenic route down to Alnwick to collect some punters. A good old fashioned pillar eh, nice change from all those spires and domes :)

Parked near the start of the footpath. There seems to be a permissible path around the field edge eastwards parallel to the road, then I headed north around the field edge again to the trig. To reach the trig required hopping over a barbed wire fence into a little triangular overgrown area. It looks a bit different now to previous photos.

vgc, metal cap deep letters, in nettly scrubby summit copse between arable fields. Beware of the grass- sat for 30 mins picking Brome spikelets out of my socks afterwards (in the shade on a v hot afternoon)

a bit interesting getting there had to climb over a few fences and dodge couple of cows. Nothing special when you get there.
