Parked in Litton, up onto the ridge for the Firth Fell pillar. Followed the wall to Horse Head then on to here. Pillar retains an original centre cap, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole unplugged, RHS plug has almost completely degraded. Rear and RHS faces have some significant fractures to their lower quarters. Cloud down, no views.

Left holiday cottage at Selside (north of Horton-in-Ribblesdale) immediately on to footpath to High Birkwith and a section of the Pennine Way. Took track/ROW NE into forestry, then track off to East and finally through woods. Emerged to look up at a stone built pillar which turned out not to be the trig but sited on a small summit to the West of the concrete trig. A warm but overcast morning. Left SE to meet bridleway at junction with footpath to Plover Hill and Pen-y-Gent.

Walke across the forest from Low Green Field Lings. Bit of a nightmare, steep, tussocky grass through forest, then over fallen trees, then up other steep sided valley. To make it worse it was about 28 degrees which all contributed to a very gruelling walk. Don't attempt this route.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 8th October 1949 costing 19.13s.8d. Computed as secondary station SD96/4 withi the Skipton block during 1951. Levelled for height also in 1951. This station was last maintained by the OS on 30th November 1994. SITE VISIT: Three trig circuit starting and finishing near High Green Field. Probably best to park outside (derelict) Far Barn at SD835796. There is no suitable parking offered any further up this public road, and doing so will result in a politely worded note attached to windscreen. Followed road and bridleway to access land at SD817777, then east to ridge of hill and NE to summit. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces NNW, ~331. Vented through SE sight hole. Full 360 panoramic view. Continued to Cave Hill, and Low Green Field Lings. Returned to car to find handwritten note affixed informing that this meadow is private, of SSSI status, and not to park there again.

AMAZING view of Pen-y-ghent - well worth the struggle from the forest track through the woods to the North. This approach is not recommended, unless you're a masochist.Best to come up from Yockenthwaite and along the ridge from Horse Head.

What an absolutely stunning location this is. More so on such a perfect weather day. You could literally see for ever. We came to this on a sixteen mile walk from Litton. Climbing up the path onto Old Cote Moor before following the ridge wall all the way round passing over Birks Fell for my friends last English Nuttall and visiting the pillar at Horse Head and collecting another seven caches along the way. From the pillar we dropped down to cross the wire fence then slanted east on a faint tractor track to the gate in the wall to the start of the track that took us through the house at Cosh and on to Foxup. After which it was a delightful walk through the hay meadows back to Litton. As for the pillar itself it is in excellent condition, sheep rubbed and still retains an original plug. It was the best place on earth to be today. I could have stayed forever.

Revist 5 1/2 years on. Came up the same way. A feint path is emerging in places either side of the fence/wall from Swarth Gill Gate. Weather poor today so the score reduces but Pen-y-Ghent looked dark and brooding under a heavy sky with the summit covered by cloud. Electric fence still not working. Bagged the summit this time then on to Horse Head.

Finally bagged this blighter after several previous aborted efforts due to lack of motivation and weather and other feeble excuses. Stands proud on a lovely spot with great views across to PYG and the most splendid pillared cairn just nearby. White on three sides but todays wind direction is obviously the norm as that face is blasted clean. Walked up the fire break from the forestry road - very muddy even after all the dry weather recently, then down to Blaydike Moss and Foxup.

Walked up from Foxup via Cosh Farm (which in no longer uninhabited and is currently being extended and refurbished with a big PRIVATE sign on the gate!). As a result, I didn't continue along the valley as suggested by 'stonestreaker' but went behind the farm and diagionally up the hill until I reached the wall. Then is was straight up along the wall, over the electric fence, through the gate and onto the trig. Spectacular views of the Three Peaks against a very moody skyline. There's another monument 330yrds west of the trig thats worth a visit if you get chance.

easy but takes a long time... you can easily follow the track from foxup all the way up to cosh farm( deserted when i was there, but had cacti in the windows- must be a summer sheiling!)from there continue up the shallow valley until you meet a wall crossing your way, at a severely waterlogged gate. now it's uphill and left at the top. I didn't test the electric fence even though it has no warnings on it -it LOOKS electric!. The extra old cairn is a fine thing- since going up here, I've noticed how prominent it is from around horton in ribblesdale

Excellent views today with good visibility across the surrounding area. Came up from Horton along Foxup Road following a faint path/track running adjacent the fence/broken wall - we turned left immediateley before the stone footbridge over the (usually) dry stream at Swarth Gill Gate and kept the wall/fence on our right, when we reached the crest of the hill we turned right (unless visibilities poor you'll see the trig way before you reach the crest). Strangely the area around the trig has an 'electric fence' around it (at this area it did have notices - unlike stonestreakers later posting) - god knows why - the 'electric fence' don't work - well at least it didn't today as I can testify by virtue of grabbing the bloody thing with zilch of an effect - and slightly to the west of the trig is a broken wall where it's a simple job to straddle the fence anyway. There's a tall stone pillar a couple of hundred yards to the west of the trig that's worth a visit (near Cosh Knott Well) - strangely not shown on the 2002 map, does anyone know why the stone pillar is there ?
