Toposcope 3

News item dated Friday 30th August 2019

A toposcope on Win Hill was installed by David Morton and Peter Ash on 7 June 2019. It was in memory of Geoff Errington (1949-2012) for his services and generosity to the PNFS.

The Society received objections by a “walker and runner” and it was reported by a cyclist as damaged on our Facebook page on 21 July. David Bratt and David Morton climbed up from Twitchill Farm on 29 July intending to repair the toposcope only to discover that it had been stolen. There was no sign of the disc, just the remains of the grey, cement base.

The total cost of the toposcope amounted to £1,000 and took almost two years to come to fruition. It is extremely sad that this act of vandalism has deprived Geoff’s family and friends of a fitting memorial to his life.

A fitting memorial

The society plans to dedicate a fourth signpost to the memory of Geoff, as a token of our appreciation for all that he did for PNFS.
