FB Number: S6721   Condition: Good   Score: 4/10

Free parking next to the Oakenshaw Wildlife Reserve. Opted for this route due to horses in ROW route. Negotiating the field east from nature reserve proved problematic due to inquisitive young cattle. Relieved to seek the sanctuary of the plantation. Trig located south of woods about 10m into grazing field. Plinth exposed possibly due to cattle congregating. A roundabout return route skirting field boundaries to avoid cattle and horses.

Parked on minor road leading up to this trig point. The no access and cctv sign is very off putting. Walked uphill on track and quickly the trig comes into view along with a horse. Located on a mound and closed off with wire fencing I chose to take a long view photo of this pillar. Footpath sign is clearly visible but the nettles show no evidence of public regular access. An unremarkable trig.

Parked at Raisgill sd905788 and headed SW on a 1hour steep and gradual walk to the summit. Horse Head trig commands fabulous panoramic views. Some flaking of cement around the spider. The pillar is in need of a good coat of paint. Our first experience of continual rain prompted us to sack off further trigs and we chose to return via Beckermonds and the Dales Way. This turned out to be an unexpected surprise full of interesting limestone features which has enhanced my mark for interest. Green Field Beck was very low due to the unprecedented dry weather conditions we have experienced exposing long stretches of dry river beds. Yockenthwaite Cave and a nearby circular set of stones, located as a star on the ordnance survey map, added even further interest. A thoroughly smashing walk.

Our second trig of the day. Walk from White Crag was tough going in terms of peat hags, tussocks and generally non existent tracks or paths. It took us a good 1hr 30mins to walk from prior trig. The views at this location were fantastic. The trig is surrounded by very interesting lichen covered boulders presenting great photo opportunities especially WSW to Deadwater Fell. Our return walk via White Kielder Burn to Blakehope Nick was a 3hour epic. The bridleway was barely visible. Our first experience of footpath was as we entered the forest at nt683985.
