Revisit after 11 years pleased to see Trig standing proud after reading reports of toppling, thanks to whoever carried sand/cement and did repair a fine job well done. free roadside parking Stonycroft Bridge climbed Causey Pike then wonderful ridge walk over Scar Crags and Sail route highly recommended. on the downside the Trig is now missing its cap aswell as the flush bracket some sad T!!!! stolen it.

Just reading the other logs, I hadn't realised the pillar's previous history of disrepair. I was paying more attention to staying upright in the wind on the summit and the pillar seemed perfectly ordinary. I noticed the lack of a flush bracket, a missing cap and some concrete missing from around the spider. Looks like a good repair job to me.

Last visited 7 years ago and it is fair to say that neither me or the pillar are in as good a shape as we were back then. I had puffed my way up from Rannerdale via Whiteless Pike and Wandope. The pillar was upright but truncated and in a sorry state. Today the weather was superlative, the views stupendous; it doesn't get any better than this.

Back upright! Parked at bridge at Stoney croft to East, over Causey Pike and up to top. Beautiful on way up and way down, tough initially but good paths. Top in mist, would've been clear if I'd have been half an hour later. Nice to see back upright, seems solid enough. Plenty of walkers, beautiful sunny morning.

Revisit sad to say this trig has toppled but there is good and bad news,firstly there is a bag of sand and cement buried in the trig base on which a cairn has been built on top which leads me to believe that someone is going to try and re-erect the pillar. But sadly the flush bracket was not there on my visit lets hope the repair crew have this in safe keeping ready for re-installing.the views here as always are outstanding could see the isle of man as clear as a bell today !

Stone-built pillar with some damage to cement screed on one top edge, but nothing extensive. Original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; all sight holes sealed. ***Revisited 7 Sep 2019, this pillar's been on quite a journey since my first visit.

Parked in forest car park at NY214244. Up through forest tracks and joined mapped hill paths at NY211228. Followed mapped paths via Grizedale Pike. Unfortunately this stone built secondary station pillar is becoming worse for wear. Several stones out from rear of pillar. Completed 21st April 1950 costing 36.11s.0d. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces 135 (SE). Vented through NW sight hole. 360 to many other Lakeland Fells and the Kirkcudbrightshire coastline.

top slightly damaged, graceful stonebuilt pillar, metal cap, shallow letters. Gorgeous view of Skiddaw, Blencathra and across the Solway to Galloway. With Yiannis Tridimas and Alan Duncan, the day after supporting Neil Shepherd's and Ran Fiennes' Bob Graham Round attempts. 2-hour round trip from Stair Village Hall, where we were staying. Great weather, brilliant scenery.

Back here as part of a morning circuit of the grizedale round before sorting out some new boots in Keswick. bit overcast but lovely walking weather. Noticed one of the round bumps that are sometimes left behind on removed trigs on the top of Grizedale Pike but forgot to take a photo.

Crag Hill on the OS maps but if you read Wainwrights guide he refers to it as being Eel Crag. You can reach this trig point on the circular Coledale Round walk. You climb up from Braithwaite over Grisedale Pike or take the easier miners path via Force Crag mine.
