Same as everyone else. Good, if slightly unspectacular views.

Another 'roadside' one Mrs TJR spotted enrolee from YOSM to YOSM. Short walk from track to trig point, convenient turning point at mast.

Should have bagged this back in August 2011 when walking the Pennine Way. However, the long slog from Greenhead to Bellingham in miserable weather put paid to that. Parked on road just below pillar. Good view to S.

It's possible to drive along the lane towards the mast but we walked from the cattle grid at the junction till just south of trig then across heather. Great views in all direction.

Visited while walking the Pennine Way. Almost hidden in the grass surrounding it. Short diversion from the path across heather, but if you're lucky you'll find a narrow track leading most of the way. No views to write home about - mostly dominated by the transmitter mast. Has the distinction of being my 200th pillar!!
