Oh dear. Large cairn that has been up here as long as anyone can remember has been 'quarried' to provide material for smaller new cairn (March 2017 approx) which has been built as memorial to local rugby player. Considered doing some tidying up but two members of said rugby club then turned up! Area of interest for block was adjacent to this new cairn. Poked around and had several trial excavations. Got quite excited at one point but no joy. Several coast to coasters and a fell runner asked what I was up to. Eventually decided to head for home, only then realising i had forgotten to take any photos. My local fell so doubtless will be back.

GR indicating beneath the larger of the 2 cairns. Unable even to prod the ground.

Another visit with 6-figure references. Too many rocks and thick Sphagnum moss. A small garden fork is not very useful - unable to find trig.

When I was on Long Barrow (Dent Fell) I only had 3-figure references to work off ie NY 037 130. I couldn't find anything - and even went to NY 03700 13000. This was obviously nowhere near the buried block location.

NY11 T032 BURIED BLOCK. GPS points to location 20M east of cairn close to destroyed wall. Area covered in tussock grass, bog and rocks....could not find. Continued to Dent summit, wandered around a bit to make certain covered the high point.
