It is possibly the easiest trig point to reach as it is a mere few feet away from a parking area on the road bend. Unfortunately this ease of access probably explains why the trig point is so badly defaced.
At least on my third visit the graffiti had begun to fade. The nearby wall rather hinders the view but if one looks over it there is a view of Otley Chevin, Rombald’s Moor and Ilkley.
All in all the state of the trig point, combined with its setting against a wall, makes this a candidate for possibly my least favourite trig point.
