Skirlington Trigpoint

Started in Hornsea yesterday and walked along the beach until below the trig point before scaling the clif. Returned to Hornsea via the path at the cliff top, having to go through a few caravan sites as the path on the map seemed to no longer exist in places.

 

Just thinking

I think I am going to alter this blog a little. I still aim to bag as many trig points as I can but there’s more than that to all this. I don’t want to limit myself to just trig points, in the last few weeks I have been to sdome amazing places that didn’t involve trig points. And surely those are worth just as much?

 

I’ve also signed up for the walk 1000 miles challenge this year so would nice to have somewhere to keep track of that. And I am semi planning to walk hadrians wall this year, the current plan is to do it all in one go without camping but we’ll see if that changes as I plan it. Thinking of doing it for charity, currently Mountain Rescue is my charity of choice. I’ll write a proper blog on that though once the details are sorted both in my mind and in reality 😛

 

So ye, there may be some changes here.

What is an Intersected Staion? And Destructor Chimney logging

So I know I said I was focusing on the pillars, but I went into York yesterday and literally walked past this one so couldn’t resist logging it.

What is a intersected staion?
.
An intersection station is usually a highly visible landmark like a water tower or church steeple that has a position that was determined by triangulation, as opposed to having equipment set up on top of it like other stations. The “point observed” is some distinctive feature of the landmark that was sighted on and was the basis of the position calculation.
Essentially they work in a similar a way to the pillars, they just were not built for that specific purpose. Instead they are pre-existing structors that are very visable and easy too identify from a distance
