Took the footpath from Thackwaite signed Low Fell. On approaching Larch, left path and headed NW to pillar. There are many unmarked paths here and it is well trodden to the pillar. No one about today. Cracking views today.

Parked at Thackthwaite. Blue sky, snowdrops and snowcapped higher mountains added to the interest of this trig point.Wind farms visible across to the west. Popular walk as evidenced by the number of people I passed. One gate in particular is comical as the fence is non existent either side.

Two wainwright day, parked in Loweswater and walked upto the Mosser fell road. nice walk up to the trig pillar. Built in traditional Lakeland design, all metal work intact. For one of the best views in the Lakes head for Low Fell. The views down Crummock Water presents an excellent photo opportunity. Returned via Kirkstile Inn for a cracking pint of the local brew.

On a round of the 7 hills around Mosser Fell. Lovely rolling, grassy approach from Smithy Fell with good all round views, if a little hazy due to the sun - the only day this week in the Lakes where no jacket was required. Stone-built pillar approx 8m NE of the high point. Original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; 1 sight hole only, at rear - open; spider off-set from centre. Panoramic views to both Lakeland fells and N & W to lowland areas. Sky larks aplenty.

climbed from Thackthwaite in a break in the rain, but then got soaked as we crossed the fells south to Low Fell. Good views north across the coastal plain... you really feel on the edge of the Lake District here.

Delightful lane, then a grassy drove road and a steep ascent up a grass slope, and then a wire fence to cross to get to the column. Why don't farmers provide stiles (at little cost) compared with the problems when fences get trodden down by walkers trying to cross? Good views to south. Mother with newly born calf - afterbirth still visible. Calf was OK.
