This page is for Pat, who shares my love of walking - but not trig points.

Introduction

I intend to add lists of the extant trig points in my walking territory, county by county. I've started with East Sussex. The rest will follow as I find the time.

The lists will include a link to a page with photographs of those trig points I've visited, and, where I can remember the details, some notes about access.

Notes

For each trig point I have listed two names - the one used by TrigpointingUK, and an alternative where I think it's more appropriate.

The column headed 'Access' gives an idea of how easy it is to reach the trig point, coded as follows:

1 On a public right of way or land accessible to the public
2 Requires crossing a field or other open land
(either unfenced or accessible using gates or stiles)
3 Requires crossing a fence, where the fence is not a significant obstacle
(usually because it has not been maintained - conditions can change)
4 Visible, but not accessible without landowner's cooperation
5 Neither visible nor accessible without landowner's cooperation

The lists are ordered from west to east (that is, in order of increasing OS grid reference easting).
