This trig point has been given a coat of paint and adopted as a memorial to Cleveland Ironstone Miners, its position does actually give a view of a large number of mines.
I’ve been unable to located any information on who did this, but have seen photos of it unpainted and in a hedge in 2009, theres also an impressive new cairn.
Some useful details have been provided by Dave Walsh :-
I have done some local digging and have found that the cairn and the plaque on the old trig point was the work of a guy called Fred Ramage from Beechcroft, Stanghow. I don’t know him myself, but I was told the cairn was a labour of love, using old stonework from some abandoned walls in the area, and that Fred both lugged the heavy stonework up to the hill top and erected the memorial. It seems the OS were happy for the plaque and the paintwork on the trig point, as they do not use them now, relying instead on aerial surveys and GPS. As I said I do not know Fred. However, I feel his work needs some celebration, and hopefully this site can provide it.
