My first trig of 2017 while out on a geocaching trip. This one is probably easier to spot in winter than summer.

Enjoyed the steep walk up through the woods, and the views from the bench (catching my breath) set just below the pillar, which is now surrounded by trees and shrubbery. Cap in place with raised lettering, all four sight-holes open, and slight damage to one top corner (see wrose's photo).

Up the muddy path from the car park. The pillar is just off the track in amongst the trees.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Hidden amongst trees, like Santa's grotto for trig points! views limited by forestry and recent felling has left summit scarred and ugly

Pleasant woodland. The trig was in an area of windthrow, and the weather abysmal. Visited on the way home from a bothy maintainance visit.
