There are 27 Trig points on Explorer 297 – well that is 27 trig point pillar locations – though 4 of them are destroyed – I guess for completeness I still have to go and visit the site where they used to be though.  Thyere are 4 or 5 of them that I have visited recently and have photographs of, so I won’t bother going to them. The most difficult one to get to is the furthest away – Simon’s Seat… this used to be a 12 mile hike that you did from School, though I never went… so I am quite looking forward to getting there eventually… maybe not a 12 mile hike though, if I come at it from the moor side rather than the river side it is shorter and flatter !
