Hello Ted have seen your log fancy both these for the next station to be found.I have done both summits have learned that garden trowels aren't up to the job you need a proper gardening spade as well as a long probe and as a brass ring is located into the concrete ring itself a metal detector could make it easier to locate.Was going to buy one but had to purchase a lightweight tent instead for latest trip away instead.Any way done the millstone rigg station in the meantime its a very boggy route up there great views though.
Kind regards

Hi,

Blencathra is on the list but the OS chose to name it 'Saddleback'.
Details here http://trigpointing.uk/trig/7306

no y garn on list ??

I don't think this one is known. More details please.


Thanks
Ted
