The four fields around the station seem to be grazing on a mixed farm.

I’ve marked what I think is evidence of stock activity on grazing, typically will mark the ground around water troughs and a field corners.


Contributor Caz has found a good photo of the station but there is a sad story.

I dedicate this post to the memory of Jeremy Kemp (aka Bergfuehrer)

“Message from Latestarter (Gill Rogers): It is with great sadness that i record here that Bergfuehrer died on 19th July 2011. … ”

and his words

” Jeremy’s profile: I have been a walker and cyclist all my life. I have always kept a log of the hills I have climbed so I have been able to accurately enter those trigs visited before I found this great website. I do not have GPS, I just rely on accurate map reading and the information of others. My only critical observation of this website is the geographical information and I know it would take time to change it. I am a strong believer that geographically and historically, counties cannot change or move. Administrative areas come and go but counties do not. I therefore enter in my logs the traditional county in which the trig is to be found.”
