Visited this one while on short holiday bagging Black Combe. Parked at Moor Top car park and walked through forest and on up to trig. Weather turned out great with wonderful clouds. Rough texture finish on this pillar but it suits the craggy surroundings. Down into Grizedale for a cuppa before walking back on other side of valley.

We had just wanted a short walk to fill in some free time on a weekend course in Windermere and were using a photocopied map from the visitor centre ! It was a surprise when the trig popped out as we emerged from the trees. Lovely weather. Lovely views.

Parked in Grizedale visitor centre and headed up the PROW but not before dropping in on the café. Sustenance taken at the café headed up the Red/Green trail to eventually arrive at the trig. Reasonable visibility but some low mist still hanging in the trees. Concrete spalling to the top surface. Plug removed and filled. Unfortunately some graffiti to top and sides.

Camping in Coniston, so able to walk from the tent. Not as hard to find as the map suggested, although the compass was useful. The views from this trigpoint were fantastic, a real 360 view to linger over. Slight weathering to top of pillar, nothing serious. Concrete plug. Nice FB number painted yellow numbers.

Parked at the Grizedal Visitor Centre (currently under redevelopment) and did the 'green route'. This 10 miles route is know as the Silurian Way and culminates - after about 8 miles - with a trip to the Crag. Snow showers all day that reduced the visibility at the trig. Amazingly saw just a handful of other walkers all day and only 1 swarm of cyclists.

Great views over that sweep of south lakeland that is the preserve of the foresters. The trees look like a sea sitting below the surrounding cliffs of the Wainwrights (Coniston very big in the foreground, Langdale, Fairfield and Kentmere )- you can see why he drew his boundary where he did. Pass through the door out of the childrens play area, turn right, go past the farm and then follow the red posted trail on your left up the hill (750ft,3miles,2 hours). You can get a map in the information office. An extra arrow ! see pic

Bagged on a superb, mild and clear January morning, with mists swirling down below on the lakes themselves. The forest paths are designed more the service the forest than offer a direct route to the summit so this adds distance. The final few feet to the trig is an enjoyable scramble. Trig base getting nicely eroded.

Approached from the east, visitor centre. WARNING, parking charges apply. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in July 1948 costing £16.5s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T14 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S4428 was levelled for height in 1972. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1976. Spider no longer has original OS centre cap, plugged with concrete or the like.
