(952) Nice walk through the camp site, and headed out towards the cliff area. Pillar soon spotted. Non original plug, and some graffiti scratched onto the front of the pillar.

Parked in Skirlington Leisure Park, car park off left after entrance near Arcade building. Wandered through pleasant holiday park, heading for cliffs then S through caravans until open field reached. Pillar located near a mound on cliff top. So pleased to finally bag this one as it's days are surely numbered due to coastal erosion. Still, condition is good for now. Sea fret prevented any view to Bridlington Bay, but had a lovely Dad Daughter day and scoring highly due to location and the fact this hero's days appear to be numbered.

I parked at the caravan park and walked through the row upon row of caravans. Once through them finding the pillar was easy enough.

Days are numbered - I waled back to the parking to the south right along the cliff edge and noted a number of spots where there had been recent falls.

Well worth the trip up the track for this one, stunning views on a sunny June day. This Trig is not far from the cliff edge, so how long it will last is hard to guess!

Well it's still there. Staying in Bridlington so made a trip to see if the recent storms had washed it away. Some nearby erosion but still 6m to go.

Stopping at Withernsea Sands and as my daughter had gone to the beach with our camping companions, I decided to have a drive up to here and visit this Trig as the YOSM geocache has recently visited it. I guess it pays to have a little local knowledge as I got caught up with the rest of Christendom visiting Skirlington market. Enjoyed the walk through the campsite and I could see the trig as I picked up the coastal grass path. I guess this one won't be here before too long so glad to visit it while it's still here.

I was passing so I had a look just to make sure the pillar had not disappeared into the sea over the winter. Still 6m from the cliff.

Walked from Skirlington car boot car park through the massive caravan park. Trigpoint only 5m away from the edge will be gone soon. Spent some time looking for the Low Skirlington bolt seemed to me that a trench had been cut along the verge for services at about the same distance from the road as the bolt. The grass had regrown but the ground seemed disturbed with voids under the turf. Take a prodder or a garden fork if you go looking.

I drove into Skirlington caravan park to shorten the walk to this pillar. I parked at the Tow Bar Inn (not funny - open to the public). I could have driven to within sight of the pillar by following the road through the site to near the cliff then turn right to the end of the line of mobile homes. The pillar is still secure for the time being.

We walked up the track from the south - plenty of skylarks about. The trig is even nearer to the edge now than Saginanivalis's last photo - it's days are surely numbered. Tarmac plug.

I found this trig point intersting simply beacuse of its close proximity to the cliff edge, and to a nearby building that was half over the edge of the cliffs. Access is easy.
