Encouraged by the earlier posts wait until we see one of the farmers, really friendly - peers up the field and reckons we should be ok as the cows are in the other field. Those cows are beautiful Jersey's not sure what to make of equal favourite place along with the east and mid South Pennine. The green swathes of hills span three current-day counties whilst the sea gleams, stormy clouds advancing from Bowland.

My mum thought I was very thoughtful offering to take her to see her bridesmaid of 58 years ago as part of her Mother's Day ride out. It just so happens there is a trig point on the highest point of her farm. Result- I get the brownie points and a stunning panorama. Visibility excellent and enough snow on the Pennines and Lakeland hills to frame the view. PS thanks for the kind hospitality after my walk

Walked down track in adjacent field. Lots of beautiful cows (Jerseys, I think). Extremely friendly and pushy. Only too willing to be patted on the nose. Whole herd joined us for most of the walk.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS measurement. SITE VISIT: Room for one car at SD567722 on west verge beside gate just south of mapped RoW. Access via track behind said gate which runs parallel to mapped right of way and continues to top. Very curious herd of cattle to pass. South corner of grazing field, some bounday fences differ from layount indicated on 1:25K map. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces ESE, 111. Vented through three sight holes, NE face plugged, innards partially blocked with debris. Open outlook to surrounding countryside and westerly Dales, full panorama broken by some nearer woodland clumps.

Awkward parking for a big camper, but it's a dead end road with no traffic...first of the day that's not been yellowed.

Visible with relatively straight forward access. No right of access but there is a nice track leading directly to the pillar. By going through the gate just to the south of the driveway and footpath to Kitchlow Farm. This parallels the driveway and I was passed by two vehicles but no one challenged me. Pillar is in good condition and still has an original plug. Nice surrounding views and today I had an audience of cows to report my visit.

We parked on Locka Lane near the track/public footpath that leads down to Kitlow Farm. Don't take this but go through the gate to the left and follow the track up the field which leads straight to the trig. Plug with indented lettering.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was built in May 1949 costing 10.2s.10d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T11 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S5401 was levelled for height in 1970. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in April 1976. Up the track from the northeast.
