For newcomers

At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

58 - Competition follow up

I emailed  British Orienteering about the trig point object - here is the reply:


I have been in touch with the local orienteering club and regional development officer. Neither have any knowledge as to why an orienteering punch is attached to the trig point. One suggestion is that it may be linked to fell races (3 peaks?)or some LDWA challenge.

I have now sent a query to Ordnance Survey. I will post the result as and when I receive a reply. The last time I tried to get some information from the OS I did not get a reply.

I've just got onto Geocaching, but more of that later.
