All intact. A very recent coat of white paint. A few splats still on grass. Not on high point.

Parked just outside Cornhill on the roadside and headed off along Muggerís Loan. Was a bit worried, but didnít see a single mugger. Bypassed Cramondhill trig and carried on to this one. Easy to follow track landed us on the summit beside the water tank. Pillar sits just beyond it in the wood. Views not too bad. Saw deer, hares, woodpecker, many pheasants and some partridge. With CJ.

My second visit, different route, this time short walk west from the public road to New Heaton Farm along the bridleway, then into the plantation and along to the TP, being guarded by a flock of what I can only describe as the ugliest sheep I have ever seen! Cramondhill TP easily seen to the west, and thatís where we headed next.

Parked in Cornhill on Tweed and walked up bridleway to trig field. Loads of sheep in field so only I ventured over for pictures. We then carried on along Mugger's Loan, then to New Heaton trigpoint, we then had a short distance along the road and pick up the track again. A lady at Harper Ridge came out into her garden to thank us for using the footpath across the field as her husband tries to walk it as much as possible to 'keep it open'. Then another short distance along the road to pick up the track to the river and then back to Cornhill. A lovely circular walk.

A nice walk along Muggers Loan from Cornhill taking in Cramondhill first.Pillar is leaning slightly. Still retains a good coat of white paint. Lovely views to the west, very limited to the east due to the woodland. An arrow on the gatepost at 882406 shows the path is indeed routed across the grassy field rather than along the continuation of the track eastwards.

Ample parking at nt888418. Passed about 6 tractors and a harvester along the country minor roads to reach this parking spot. Easy walk WSW along bridleway. This trig is situated within the wooded copse. Well protected and still with a flush of white paint this pillar commands great views west. Spider intact. Wheat fields in abundance and at their best on this the longest daylight of the year.

I agree with a previous logger that the track to approach this one isn't quite as marked on the map but it is still easy enough to get to. I would see the combines working hard in the fields below.

After walking from Melkington to Cramondhill along the Muggers Loan we retraced our steps then carried on the short distance to New Heaton. The map shows the track cutting directly east to the corner of the plantation New Hearton TP is situated in - however the track skirts NE round the side of the hill following the Oxdean Burn before ascending SSE up the field edge to the plantation. Not realising this we made a direct line for the TP across the (trackless) field but returned following the track. The New Heaton TP should offer much the same view as Cramondhill, they being so close together; however being a wee bit higher potentially should offer a better view, but being in a plantation actual has a more limited view. Curious as to why these two TPs are so closely located.

Pillar leaning to the west which can be clearly seen when approaching through the tree belt from the north. Lousy weather so limited views although the tree belt gave a little shelter from the wind and rain.

Pillar in good condition but slightly off plumb, leaning forwards. Foundations probably being undermined by tree roots. Spider retains OS plug with deep indented lettering. Back sight hole open, others plugged. FB faces west ~265į. Tertiary station in Block NT72, Jedburgh. Completed 27th March 1953. In the edge of a wooded strip. Pulished right of way is overgrown with crops but field is easily skirted around via north edges. Views to Cheviot, Eildon Mid Hill, Black Hill (NT72), Dirrington Great Law. Done in conjunction with neighbouring Cramondhill, parked in Donaldsons Lodge and walked up via Melkington road end. Photographed 2/10/2007, GRP.

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 27th March 1953 costing £15.19s.6d. Compted as tertiary triangulation station NT72/T75 in 1957. Levelled for height in 1971. Last maintained by the OS in November 1986. SITE VISIT: Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retained OS centre cap with stamped lettering. In a wooded strip beyond arable land. At the time, this was my last S793* and a welcome addition filling a gap a run of consecutive FB numbers bagged by myself. This run has since been extended to S7376-S7420 and there is now potential to increase that further.

In west edge of Woodland. Had to take two goes at driving up approach road as it was very icy and we slid back down the hill the first time!
