Trig pillar on Five Pikes
Trig pillar on Five Pikes
The presence of five pikes on this fairly featureless moorland above Weardale is far from obvious. The trig pillar is one of many established for the Ordnance Survey Retriangulation of Great Britain. Subsequently, Global Positioning Systems have rendered the pillars redundant, but they remain valuable landmarks and aids to navigation. They have now been adopted and are maintained by individuals on a voluntary basis.
