Thread: Trig Points: Night & Day

    Trig Points: Night & Day

    As a public service I attach a photograph of the Gt Whernside trig point.

    This is for the use of night runners who when milling around in freezing gale force winds/snow/hail cannot identify it.

    It has not moved since Pete Jebb's race a few weeks ago.

    Well it had moved that night. In fact it kept moving around so we could all turn at different places ! Very clever these trig points.

    Its a well known fact that the great whernside trig is always down and the the right a bit from where you expect it to be. Honestly, try it next time; it works
