Good parking and facilities at Grimwith Res walked out along dam wall then picking up good paths and then straight up the moor.Found the three stones and metal sheets easily but had to dig to find block which is a rod type.Great find ted good little walk of about 8 k if you want this one.Spotted a great trig pillar lookalike at the bottom of the dam wall.

The OS sketch was obtained in order to locate this trig. It showed three reference points on nearby rock outcrops - had expected these to be cut marks or else rivets but although the outcrops were easy to locate there were no witness marks evident. The OS record also mentioned "metal sheeting covers block" and this proved relatively easy to find with only a shallow covering of peat. Counting E to W, the block is approx 11ft from the top of the 2nd outcrop and approx 6ft from the top of the 3rd. Site approached via track to W side of reservoir, gate with barbed wire on top then plod through heather. Nice views with several other trig sites visible including Simon's Seat, Thorpe Fell and Meugher.
