Plastic plug. Graffiti not noticed at pillar, but shows up on photos. Public. Access Land. Easy walking on the Pennine Bridleway above Cowpe Reservoir. Cowpe Lowe dominates the way ahead, with the pillar clearly visible. The wide, flat & grassy summit is easily attained. Can also be reached by Gin Croft Lane & Sandy Beds Lane from Edenfield.
