Parked on road before Ravenstown then walked down the road to farm track then used 3 gate route to bag trig without bothering anyone at the farm during their lunch hour. A lovely sunny day.

Parked at Winder Bridge and followed the track to the farmhouse. Nobody around at the farm to ask permission so went up to pillar anyway.

Parked at Winder Bridge and walked up to farm. Got permission of the lady - who showed me the way. Also got permission to climb gate onto the coastal path, enabling me to have a circular walk.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS measurement. SITE VISIT: Parked at road end just west of Sand Gate farm at SD353756, but be aware of rising tides if leaving car for a while. Followed mapped RoW around coast to field gate marked 'private' at SD351748. Through gate, along field edge to farm track. Courtesy knock at Canon Winder farmhouse before entering trig field. Direct ascent to summit from NW corner of grazing field. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces ENE, ~59. Vented through SE & SW sight holes. Open 360 panorama, hazy on day of visit.

I walked the Cumbrian Way from Flookburgh, then found I couldn't reach the farm from the beach as the wall was too high and the two gates had large PRIVATE signs on them.Photos from distance.

Pillar, with the Hoad monument, beyond (Ulverston). Unable to reach from the beach!

Permission to visit given by friendly farmer. Too overcast to see very far - pity. Plug intact.

walked down coastal path but didn't get to trig as high fence and unwelcoming signs. High risk of GOML encounter so just took pics over the fence. Lot of birdlife, waders, on the sands & marshes

Plug intact, asked @ farm, no problems at all. Spelling on OS maps is CANON WINDER.

Approached from east. Quizzed by RangeRover woman on my exit - she was happy that I'd been to the trig, but was careful to point out it was private land. Spelling? "Canon" on the OS maps

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. Pasture summit overlooking farmhouse, nice view. Asked at farm - no problem. A plane from Cark airfield was dropping off about 6 pairs of paragliders overhead, who each drifted down to land on the airfield.

Parked on the beach by Sand Gate, walked along the coast line to the farm not very welcoming signs and nobody around as we had a toddler with us we didn't want to risk it. Will revisit approaching from the other side

I don't know how other approached this pillar but we (Shane, my brother Jim and myself) parked at Sand Gate and took the coastal path south. The path runs along the foreshore and when you get to the farm there is a gate which says 'No entry'. I tentatively climbed over this (with Jim and Shane lokking on) and approached the farmhouse. There was a light on inside so I rang the bell and knocked the door but got no answer. There were two 4x4s parked in the yard but nobody seemed to be about, so with heart pounding I approached the trig and recorded it's details, expecting to be challenged at any minute. I wasn't, so made my way back to Jim and Shane and the safety of the footpath. Not a very welcoming place but quite a nice trig. Plug with indented lettering.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in July 1949 costing 8.0s.10d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T12 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S5591 was levelled for height in 1971. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1976. Spider retained OS centre plug with stamped lettering by July 1991.
