We parked on the OCD-triggering Hatfeild View where parking is allowed at certain times and then simply walked down the road and onto the hospital grounds. We were completely unchallenged as we walked through to the final overspill carpark, and took the path cut into the long grass round through a sensory garden, and the pillar appeared next to the almost absurdly overkill inner fence. I know this is a secure unit, but unless they are treating a T-rex it feels a bit OTT. The pillar is in fine, weathered condition with a replacement cap. We returned the same way, again without any problem at all. Pillar #83 for my little trigbagger.

Quite a long walk from Ouchthorpe Lane entrance to the very back of the site - a woodland area beyond the overflow carpark, and next to some very high security fencing.

Didn't fancy parking in the hospital car park due to the alligator teeth and the need for a token to get out. Parking options round about are non-existant so it was a long walk for a trig in a car park. And then the fencing was more interesting than the pillar!

(1363) Originally tried to access this one via Hatfield View, and the nearby PRoW, but no joy there. Walked through the hospital grounds, and it was then a fairly short walk to the pillar. If driving in, then exit code is available at any reception. Pillar all good, and the grass in the immediate area has been freshly mown, so all was tidy. Plug non original. Could do with another coat of white paint, but glad this one turned out to be reachable. Pillar history: Built on the 30th of June 1947, at a cost of £9 9s 2d. Last maintained by the OS in September of 1986.

Visited on my way north on Sunday evening. Access to the hospital grounds was easy enough as the barrier was up and no security guard. Due to the time of the week there was easy parking close to the pillar in the overspill car park. Unfortunately because I didn't read previous logs I got stuck at the barrier on the way out and was helped by the driver of the following car.

Entered the hospital grounds through a small gate at SE335223 then headed north between buildings to trig. There is a sign near the gate to a woodland walk which looks to follow the outer perimeter of the grounds and would also bring you to round to the trig point.

This trig is accessible. Go through the main hospital gate on Ouchthorpe Lane, there's no security box and walk W up Main Road right to the end. (There are high security buildings on your right.) There is a museum open on wednesdays in one of the buildings on the left,in the same block as the multi-faith chapel; I tried to get in to the museum but it was shut, so that was my excuse to be there. At the end of Main Road veer to the right up a slight knoll near the W end of the high security development. The trig is near the high security fence. I wasn't the only person walking around and no-one stopped me. Good luck, just look purposeful, a sheaf of important looking papers might help. The views weren't bad, by the way. On to Warmfield trig on Plump Hill.

I didnt get to this one this time. A 6 foot high green fence has been erected all around the area behind the housing. I didnt really feel like climbing over it, even though I could. But I did visit back in 2010 before the new fence. Pillar is on grassy area outside the high fenced compound area, quite peaceful.

I presume this is a very secure mental hospital. It is surrounded by a 20 foot high fence. If you turn into the housing development to the North there is then a further turn to a pair of houses and the pillar can be easily viewed over the wall about 30 feet away, close to the security fence. Due to the presence of the houses and temporary(?) works type security panels along the house boundaries, I didn't attempt to reach the pillar.

Log #70. (79m). Leg 2 of a 6.0 km x 2 trig linear walk from Wakefield 41 to Field Head Hospice. Beautiful June day in April, but usual haze persists. Well, a lots happened since MAC.HAWK & caroleengel were here. Theres now a 7 ft high, speared boundary fence around the entire area of Field Head in back of the hospital. You cant even get thru the fence in the cul-de-sac. Inside this new fence is a complete circle of hawthorn, so if youre agile enough to leap the fence, you know what to expect. The whole area inside is being converted to a woodland park with high end picnic tables etc. The only place for access now is a gate on Bar Lane at the S side of the Hospice and about 130m W of the traffic circle. On entering the gate look for finger post to left pointing to Woodland Walk. Follow this around and up over the grassy knoll to reach the trigpoint. No views now as the area is surrounded by buildings or plantation.

5 years since I first visited this trig and access is little different. The access from Ouchthorpe Lane is now impossible as the gate has been replaced by a high fence. My comments about the Leeds Country Way in 2005 are now erroneous as the LCW was re-aligned in 2006 and does not officially pass this way. The ROW from the A61 to/from Ouchthorpe Lane is, of course, still there and from this ROW a faint path from the west at approx SE33330 22660 gives access through the scrub towards the trig to meet an area of obviously gardened grassland. From this theres a 100 yard walk to reach the trig.

Visible and accessible. As others have done I came from the road through the gate (broken and now parly open) ignoring the notice (I considered myself to be authorised personnel) and followed the high wire fence round to the pillar. Coming back I noticed another notice so suppose that there may be unrestrcted access from the west and the Leeds Country Way. Pillar is in excellent condition. Has a plastic plug and no holes visible. View somewhat restricted and enclosed by fence and housing.

The easy way to access the trig is to go through the gate which says authorised persons only and you're straight to it (that's the way we went back to the car). We followed the Leeds Country Way and doubled back around the back of the new houses to get to it. Plastic cap.

There is no direct access from the housing estate on the west, tall (6ft) fences have been built since Seasiders visit. There is open access from the west following the public footpath (Leeds Country Way) to where the path forks to go north/south of the hospital. At this point you can clearly see the trig immediately ahead across the open field. Follow the Leeds Country Way by going left until reaching the tall (6ft) metal fence that surrounds the housing estate and turn right into the open field and follow the fence to reach the playing field and the trig. Alternatively, Ouchthorpe lane runs N/E of the trig. There's a wooden gate between the Hospital grounds and the housing estate which threatens prosecution/death/disease/poverty/impotence etc on entry - ignore it, jump the gate and follow the high fence (20ft or so high) on your left for 30 or so yards, turn left with the fence to see the trig 20 yards away, tig and return - I aint Linford Christie but it should take you no more than about 40 seconds!!
