After several years of driving past on the way to stay in Ravenglass, I finally walked up Black Combe. Parked on the edge of Silecroft village and walked up the distinct path - steep in its early parts but eases off higher up. A howling easterly wind at the top and some snow. Views not as good as hoped (hence the 8) as quite hazy. Trig in generally good condition.

My second visit here - the first a few years ago when the tops were wreathed in mist so not much to see. Parked on the Sedbergh - Kirkby Stephen road and walked up the vertiginous but stepped route to the side of Cautley Spout (don't look down if you don't like heights !). Walked back down the other side of the gill using the narrow path which goes diagonally down the side of the hill. Trig in good condition with concrete/resin plug - relatively recently painted. A lovely crisp December day with the tops covered in snow, hardly anyone about, and marvellous views all round inc. to the snow covered Lake District peaks. Everything considered this Trig Point warranted my first score of 10. Wainwright described the view from The Calf as the finest panoramic view in all of Northern England and I have to agree.

My last Wharfedale Trig pillar this one. Followed Painterman's route up from Hubberholme - two hours out and back, though I found that if you take a slightly more westerly route back down off the plateau before heading over east to the wall/fence going down eventually to Scar House you do miss out the worst of the peat hags and bogs. The Trig itself is slowly deteriorating with alarge chunk lying on the floor (poor Trig). Good views towards the Three Peaks and back down Wharfedale on a slightly misty but still late Autumn day. I can't imagine that anyone else would pass by here unless visiting the trig or on professional moorland business.

Great views apart from those to the east/north which are still obscured by woodland, though good views north were obtained walking up and back. Was watching a good number of buzzards soaring as I walked up the track to the trig, perhaps attracted by the huge number of pheasants in the woodland.

Walked up the open access track from the Dallowgill to Pateley Bridge road - quite a hike of at least two miles each way. There was a huge and noisy flock of black-headed gulls away up on the moorside as I walked up. A very isolated trig to say it's not that high above sea level for the Dales - just over 1300 feet. Windy but warm summer's day with great views from the trig down into the Vales of Mowbray and York. Trig in very good condition with original plug and deeply indented lettering - the gamekeepers have even mown some strips through the heather more-or-less up to the trig point, which is only a few hundred yards up the low hill from the shooting box, where I had a rest and admired the views. This well-maintained shooting box even has it's own (locked) external toilet, which is unusual, though perhaps to be expected on what is one of Yorkshire's most prestigious grouse moors.

Walked up the track from West Srafton expecting a trig point as per the 1:25 000 OS Explorer Map but no trig point - just a small cairn of rocks. When I logged it on here though I see this website has it down as a bolt - presumably the bolt is underneath the rocks ? If you look on the 1:50 000 OS maps there is indeed no trig point marked. A good walk nonetheless up past the old West Scrafton Colliery and back along the moor boundary towards Great Groova Crags and back down to West Scrafton.

Walked up from Gargrave village via the old lane linking Gargrave with Bell Busk - about a steady 90 minute walk there and back with a decent rest at the trig to take in the views. A sunshine and showers April day. Surprisingly good 360 degree views from here, despite being only around 700 feet above sea level, from this trig point on top of one of the glacial drumlins which are a common feature of this part of the Craven district. Trig is in good condition with original plug intact.

An easy few-hundred yard walk up from one of two roads which meet near here, though I choose to pick a time when the field had just been manured. Trig shows some external cracks and the plug is a plastic one. Good views towards Pendle. Walton's monument, 27 feet tall, stands next to the Trig - said to have been built by the Rev. Rowe Walton of Marsden Hall in 1835. The monument also stands on what is thought to be the site of a great battle, the Battle of Brunanburgh, fought in AD 937.

A right-of-way goes across the field so not much of a detour to get to the trig though when I cut down the field to the gateway I did get a 'goml' horn blast from a passing tractor.

I suppose technically a minor trespass but a ROW crosses the far side of the same field and there are no properties within close sight of the Trig so only the sheep will know !

Trig in good condition but with plug missing. My first 'official' visit to this Trig as I have been up here several times before. Walked up the four or five miles from nr West End Church via the recently restored Rocking Hall Shooting Lodge. This is all via Access Land and is a much quieter alternative to the Valley of Desolation 'tourist route' A mild but blowy Boxing Day turned into a violently windy one and the final ascent up the rocks of Simon's Seat to the trig point was very buffety. The views from here are fantastic though I was glad to get down off the tops and into Appletreewick for a well-earned pint at the Craven Arms, from where I had arranged to be collected.

A long trudge up on a blustery but dry autumn day from Thorpe via the track up to the old lead workings and then up the moor to the Trig. There are lots of sunken tracks and channels leading up the moor which I presume were worn into the moor by ponies carrying peat for centuries down from the peat pits on top of Thorpe Fell. If you look on google maps you get an idea of how many there are. Back to the Trig...such an exposed site has obviously had its effect on the trig with the top badly crumbled. Great views into the heart of upper Wharfedale.

This moorland trig Trig obviously disappeared when the quarry extension was created - according to the Ordnance Survey trig database it was destroyed in June 1991. The quarry hole where the trig was is now flooded and is home to a good population of wading and moorland birds, so some compensation. Ironically the silica sand quarry was only in operation for around 6-7 years before closing in the early 1990's not long after the trig was destroyed. Good, if blustery, views towards Harrogate and the Vale of York.

Fortunately the flush bracket faces into the open field next to the ROW. East and West sight holes open but impossible to check the other two as they are against the dry stone wall.

Just a few hundred yards off what is locally known as the Skipton Old Road across Elslack Moor - the original direct ten mile route linking Skipton in Yorkshire with Colne in Lancashire. Trig is on the site of a Napoleonic alarm beacon. Robert Wilson, a beacon keeper, died a few dozen yards away, having succumbed to severe winter weather in 1805. His grave here was/is marked but he was subsequently disinterred and re-buried in Elslack churchyard.
