Here for the trig point. TP:UK log: Entered field at SX 62384 96363. This one is a bit of a pig to get to and involves going through hedges and over various barbed wire fences and gates. Trig is best pals with a holly bush and they live inside a hedgerow and a barbed wire fence. I didn't have any skills left for today to negioiate small spaces and barbed wire fences, so went for the under and in approach and ended up joining the two pals in the hedge and nearly had to spend the night here as I got a little trapped. Not sure what poor Coineanach Hutch thought but a comment was made 'I would worry about you doing this on your own'. If only Ms Hutch knew - I could have made a fortune with you've been framed videos of some of my trig trips. Well this one is in the bag now. #50 of the trip and #13 of the day! With Coineanach Hutch.thejackrustles31/03/2019
Hp is near the trig ( in holly hedge embankment) on slightly domed grassy field. Hazy views. On cycle trip from Bracken Tor YH.Denise 31/03/2019
From the SE across field of pasture, high point on the hedge line next to trig pillar. Also visited field on N side but no higher. Misty views and cold. A popular place today.RichardM31/03/2019
Field gate and parking at SX 6236 9637. HP on one side or the other of a substantial field boundary, which is comprehensively concealing the trig pillar.jonglew23/06/2018
