Triangulation Stations (Trig Points)

Other Sights
Many people like to collect Ordnance Survey triangulation markers (a.k.a. triangulation pillar, trigonometrical station, trigonometrical point, trig station, trig beacon or trig point) across the UK so I've included a few here, along with their technical data.

The Station Name may not be the 'widely accepted' or local name for the point but a unique name selected by the surveyor at the time.

For more information about UK Triangulation Pillars, visit the Ordnance Survey website.
