    Unashamadly stolen from the other side...

    Well, I don't feel too guilty as I started the thread :laugh:

    Post pictures of your visits to trigs, OS benchmarks, OS bolts, milestones, historic utilities markers, or other interesting geographs. Hell, even historic telegraph poles get a look in!

    This thread has been a huge success on the other side, encouraging people to get out on their bikes, tick off the miles, and explore our glorious history. Lets see if we can achieve the same success here ;)

    Is the 3rd one the real colours, @Rocky? It looks like some post processing has been done on it.

    All real colours - taken on my iPhone a couple of weeks ago. The light was just amazing.

    The Helm - just on the outskirts of Kendal. I go here for a short walk now and then for the lovely views to the mountains and also (as here) out to Morecambe Bay.

    It's actually part of the mainland but is called Walney Island.

    I don't get up to many trig points but I happened to spot one this afternoon on part 2 of my Boxing Day walk. Part 1 was round Centre Vale Park in Todmorden with my stepdaughter, her mum, husband, and dog. After that we were heading to Hebden Bridge and decided to go by 'the scenic route' over Bride Stones Moor, stopping up there to walk to the rocks and back to the car. It was fairly mild down in the valley but it was distinctly chilly up there exposed to the wind.

    View finder thingy just below Tresham in Gloucestershire. Sort of trig-point-ish...
