Parking at SD 4762 9989 - room of a car at end of the barn. Walked up through Brunt Knott Farm on a PRoW, then veered off piste to the trig. Nice stone-built pillar with extensive panoramic views. Centre cap replaced with a composite plug, painted bright yellow! All sight hole sealed.

Round route walked from Staveley. Got caught out by the weather and ended up getting a little bit wet. Couldn't see much for the clouds.

A lovely spot in an unfrequented corner of the Lake District. Did this walk with my friend Jeremy, who used to work at Brunt Knott Farm 40 years ago. He had lots of stories of digging sheep out of snow drifts and tractors sliding down hillsides in pre quad days. There were really good views of the heads of the Kentmere and Longsleddale valleys. The pillar itself is sat on a pleasing plinth of Silurian rock.

Parked at the church half-way up Longsleddale (the only car parking areas are there or at the top end of the dale). Walked back down the dale road then used the footpath through Bridge End. After the stile over the wall near 491 006 we made a bee-line for the summit. The going was rough and there was a barbed wire fence in the way, so on the way down we took the easier option and used the path SE from the summit, which crossed the fence by a stile, then made for the stile over the wall. There's a benchmark carved in a rock near to the trig. Views glorious on a clear winter's day.

First of the year - a good start. A cold windy day with snow showers coming from the Central Fells later, excellent views into Dentdale which is tomorrow's much whiter visit.

On a round of four of Wainwright's Outlying Fells. There is an arrow on nearby rock pointing to trig. There is also a FB on the side of St. James's church in Staveley S6849 - can't find any reference to it.

My final Lake District trig pillar. Parking for two cars where public road ends at NY476000 and if that's taken, room for one car on south verge, west of junction at SD476998. Followed mapped RoW through Brunt Knott Farm and onto highpoint then NNW to summit. Stone built secondary station pillar in good condition. Completed in June 1949 costing 12.13s.6d. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces 152 (SE). Vented through SW sight hole. 360 panorama from top.

Nice walk from Staveley, bright and sunny above us, but cloud all around. Much snow still on higher fells, path to Potter Tarn blocked with gate high snow drift, so returned the way we had come.
