|Parked with permission at Annieswell to west. Wood on approach felled. Trig very hard to find - almost gave up. After reading the jackrussel's TUK log - it's under tree cover - I found it. The map symbol is off - trig is very slightly to the S which puts it on the edge (but not in) the thick, high area of gorse (thankfully)||carole engel||21/11/2019|
|9th of 14. Parked at road corner just past North Kinghill and walked along track, sometimes muddy. Trig point hidden in shrubbery, surrounded by felled conifers, fortunately easy to get across. Pleasant change from the dull fields characterising most of the other Tumps in this area. Waypoint well off.||govanah||10/11/2019|
|I wondered which of the following dictionary den definitions I might find here: 1. The shelter or retreat of a wild animal; a lair. 2. A cave or hollow used as a refuge or hiding place. 3. A hidden or squalid dwelling place: a den of thieves. 4. A secluded room for study or relaxation. 5. A unit of about eight to ten Cub Scouts. Maybe wild animals, or even cub scouts, were hiding in the impenetrable summit gorse thickets,but I only managed to track down the trig in its well concealed lair.||Chris Pearson||01/10/2019|
|Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log:
Parked at Little Windhill Farm NJ 94744 45620 then followed tracks until almost at the trigpoint. Expected trig to be out in the open but it was under tree cover and quite hard to spot.||thejackrustles||25/08/2018|
|Not easy to find trig among whinns.||chalky1953||07/03/2015|
