    Does permission need to be sought to do this sort of thing?

    I asked the OS, they said it was fine as long as the landowner agreed. See my original post, the land-owner agreed

    Trig Point

    Ref: PR 3063
    Date: 27/06/2011

    Heath Common which lies near the Georgian village of Heath is now home to a restored triangulation point (trig point).

    Before the days of electronic aids trig points were a tool used by surveyors as a frame of reference for surveying the country, assuring that all boundaries, roads and bridges were accurately located.

    Early this year, Ian Rutson approached Wakefield Council asking permission to adopt and restore the trig point on Heath Common. With the help of his two sons Oliver and Alex, they undertook the task of repairing the trig point. Restoration works being completed in May.

    One of 6,577 points across the UK the Heath Common Trig Point has now been restored to its former glory.

    Heath Common was saved from enclosure by a few people but probably the most famous being Charles Waterton, the naturalist, who wrote, “It is beautiful in nature’s wildest charms”. He is also credited with creating what is thought to be the World’s first nature reserve at nearby Walton Hall.

    I've always wondered who did this: http://trigpointinguk-photos.s3.amaz...051/P51238.jpg and why.

    S3875 Billing Hill was also a funny colour for a while, but has now been fixed.
