Altitude 449m Came up this way looking for benchmarks and it seemed churlish not to log the trig pillar. Bench mark on the other face of the wall and dates from 1856. Info on the benchmark can be found at https://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm102679

Pillar has a few thin cracks on top face - some flaking at a side corner- memorial plaque on a side face - spider plugged (resin?). Views include quite contrasting scenery - moor, pasture, hill & town.

A very windy, cold day so didn't stop long at the top. A welcomed pot of tea in the pub at Bowes.

Leading a walk that passed by this pillar so the opportunity for Gemini Man and myself to go through the wall to visit was just too good not to miss. We had come up from Bowes using the footpath over High Green Fell to north. Then west along the good track to this location. The pillar itself is in good condition although the original metal plug has gone being replaced by a cemented version. Memorial plaque on north face. Grand view point on such a lovely morning.

Walked up from Sleightholme Farm, (parking by permission is available). Surprisingly dry underfoot after the deluge of the last month. Good views all round.

This trig was special by having a small plaque affixed to commemorate a local farmer, Lewis Guy. Pillar in good condition. Nice views east and north.
