Pennine Way Day 4 of 17. Highest point on Hadrian's Wall and great views, although a popular spot. We had hoped to make it to Greenhead, but I'm glad we camped at Winshields farm, a super campsite for walkers. Having both suffered dog bites at Shitlington Hall Farm earlier in the day no wonder.

Visited while walking the Pennine Way. Can't believe its not been logged since last October - this must get visited by dozens of people every day - Hadrian's Wall path is v.popular (unlike the PW). Superb lofty location (highpoint of HW) with views across half of Northumberland.

Easily accessible and highly visible being an easy stroll along Hadrians Wall footpath. Pillar in good condition but with asphalt type plug. Views left to the imagination today because of the low cloud.

Early morning visit after staying at nearby Once Brewed YHA. Short cycle up lane (no parking problems/charges) and stroll up footpath. Enjoyed the views.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 16th July 1951 costing 11.5s.3d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NY86/14 within the Hexham block during 1953. Levelled for height also in 1953. Last maintained by the OS in December 1987. SITE VISIT: Shamefully extortionate parking fee of 3 at car park to the east for the short time required. Chose not to be subjected to this racket and parked on a verge by the road west of the hill from where a longer but rewarding walk was enjoyed. There is also verge parking available on the back roads to the north. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces east, ~84. All sight holes plugged.

Fourth and last trig on HW trail for those doing it east to west (gets lower and flatter from here to Bowness on Solway), and much the best - superb views all round. Can't quite believe we had such a clear week of weather during one of the wettest summers on record in Britain. Must have done something right!

fantastic spot. looking forward to doing the whole hadrians wall path next year. There are 2 stone circles close to here- it's not all roman around about!! Trig is now bright white, must be a fan, i bet there's plenty to chose from.

Since it is situated on one of the most impressive sections of the Wall, visiting this triangulation point is simply necessary, from an aesthetic point of view. Do it, now!
