Pleasant if unexciting walk from Cow Green. Met the gamekeeper who was interested to know what I was about! (Genuinely interested that people should want to visit the remains of a pillar)

3rd visit to this hill so reckon I can bag a destroyed pillar. Why 3 visits? Good question!

At same time as the visit to the present remains - assuming they were on the same spot as each other. See log for other Meldon Hill.

HISTORY: Pillar completed with FB 10801, 31st May 1960 costing 26.1s.0d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NY71/1 within the Appleby block during 1961. Levelled for height also in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in July 1983. SITE VISIT: Three trig 20+ mile circuit starting and finishing in Dufton. Up via Dufton and Blackstone Edge, joining Pennine Way at NY746268. Continued eastwards along the north side of Maize Beck then turned sharp left for the final almost 1 mile climb northwards to the summit. Been robbed of two flush brackets. Originally 10801, then 12113. This stone built pillar is all but destroyed, just a scattering of loose stone blocks. The pillar bolt is still in situ. The top and spider lie on the ground nearby. Found Father Ted's note from 14:30. Full 360 open outlook to surrounding Pennine tops and across Cumbria to the Lake District. Continued via SE edge of High Cup Gill for Murton Pike.

Found the replacement - in bits, but not this original one. It's not a good place to be a trig point I guess.

Walked up from Cow Green Reservoir, no sign of the former pillar, the current one wasn't looking too good either!

First of three visits; from Langdon Beck to Appleby. The ascent from Cow Green was a slog. Visited in pre-bagging days so didn't check the FB. However, the OS trig marks database notes 'New FB 09/80' so from the point of view of the original FB, will log this as 'destroyed'.
