NT9020 : The Cheviot triangulation pillar

The Cheviot triangulation pillar
The Cheviot triangulation pillar
This 815m summit is the highest in the Cheviot Hills. The flat summit area was formed by volcanic activity and it is covered by a peat bog. Previous triangulation pillars have sunk into the peat and this one is mounted on a concrete plinth and pile foundation. The stone flag path aids progress through the peat bogs, but venturing off the path on this January day was not a problem due to the hard ground conditions.
