A visit to Burrow Heights with my 85 year old mum was a reenactment of my first trig bag aged about 7. Back then she brought me here to show me the' meteorite ' a short distance NW from the pillar. Years later I learnt it was an erratic boulder of the Silurian Age probably originated from the south Lake District.But that doesn't sound as interesting and seeing how it was Mother's Day weekend, meteorite it still was. From this viewpoint we looked onto her birthplace -Bailrigg Farm-and tried to imagine what this area will look like as a Garden Village new town if the plans go ahead. Visit while you can;soon it will be a great big building site.

Like previous visitors, took the footpath after parking a further bit back up the road.Pillar was surrounded by water and the wind so strong I could not get a photo of the flush bracket and it almost blew me over. Glad to see the back of this one.
