Information relating to a trigonometrical station

Request for information - Ref No: FOI17800


Thank you for your email of 3 December 2017, requesting information from Ordnance Survey in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000:

I am requesting any information you have be that documents, plans, exact location or even photos relating to a Trigonometrical Station on Campleton Hill (Postcode: KA23 9QG) in Ayrshire Scotland. After looking at archive OS name books this hill is listed as having a trig point.

This hill, unlike neighbouring Goldenberry Hill, does not seem to have a trig point so I am asking what information you have with regards to Campbelton Hill.

What kind of trig was on this hill when was it placed there, and when was it removed?; what design was it?;, height; width etc...
Basically all information you hold.
