What a debacle. Decided to approach from Broughton in Furnace using public footpaths shown on the map. All was going well as we crossed the golf course near Eccle Riggs but as we started crossing the low field, we discovered it was swimming in water. After I went up to my ankle in the mud for the third time, we gave up on that route. After a consolation ice cream I headed back to the main A595 to try again. Immeditely south of the trig a public footpath sets of from a convienient mini layby. It quickly joins a cement track, goes through someone's garden (a bit disconcerting) and deposits you just below the trig. Simples.

Parked at end of lane, friendly farmer was in the yard and readily gave permission to park car and gave directions to pillar. On arrival a pillar saw farmer driving round fields with his young son on the quadbike. Concrete damaged on top surface

Lancashire. There is slight damage to the top as previous photographs show, but still, I feel, an overall "good". Great views on a remarkably clear morning. Indented lettering.

We parked at Coal Gate Farm. When you go through the gate into the pasture head straight up to the left and you will come to a gate in the wall that gives access to the trig field. Rough grazing pasture with bullocks (friendly). Plug with indented lettering.

First visit. To record FB number. Approached from north. The pillar was completed in May 1949 costing 7.1s.10d. In 1950 this marker was computed as teriary station SD47/T15 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S5383 was levelled for height in 1969. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in November 1976. No photos taken.
