Triangulation Pillars


Triangulation pillars are a familiar feature of our mountain landscape and have been since 1935 when the re-triangulation of Great Britain was first launched. Many of the walks featured on this website visit triangulation pillars by fairly long and, possibly, circuitous routes. However, some walkers may wish to merely head for a particular triangulation pillar by a more direct route. By clicking on the photographs below, a new page will be opened which gives the grid reference, the height, a larger photograph and brief details of a relatively direct route to the triangulation pillar of your choice. This is merely a selection of the triangulation pillars in the Cheviot Hills and routes to the remainder will be added in the fullness of time.
