Every time I walk over Nicky Nook and stand by the trig point, I imagine how nice it would be to have one of those tables that shows directions to points of interest with their names and distances. There was one at the top of Darwen Tower that was much appreciated. The view from Nicky Nook is exceptional - do members consider that such a table would be a good idea?

Please remind me where Nicky Nook is. The Trough of Bowland and bluebells come to mind but I am just not sure.

I reckon it's an excellent idea. The current trig point was built to celebrate Victoria's jubilee.

Who would be the best people to approach on the matter? Wyre BC?

No idea...possibly WBC...or perhaps the owner of the land, if anybody knows who that is.
