#TrigPillar80 competition now closed

We have genuinely loved seeing all of the fantastic trig pillar photos that you’ve been sharing with us as we celebrate the 80th year of the trig. Across Twitter and Instagram you’ve sent in an amazing 1,656 entries of trigs across Britain. We highly recommend going and checking some of the entries out.

Our final winners have been picked and all of our T-shirts have now been given away. Check out the final winners below, and see all of the winners in our blog post.


So what now? Although the competition is closed, you can keep sharing your photos with us using #TrigPillar80. You can also follow the trig pillar routes from our #GetOutside champions – many in our beautiful National Parks. Ranging from short strolls to one which forms part of final selection training for the Special Forces – there’s something for most abilities! Click on the trig pillar you’re interested in on our interactive map and if there’s an associated walk, you’ll be taken to our #GetOutside site with a full write up and photos of the route. The route is plotted in OS Maps, so if you’re a subscriber, you’ll be able to follow the route too. If you’re not a subscriber, you still have access to the walk description and the GPX file.

You can also find out more about the 80th anniversary, read about the history, find out how we survey Britain today, as the trig pillar is no longer used, and read about Britain’s top trig-bagger.
