Take away the bleeping from the nearby landfill site this is a grand spot, surely some form of watch tower near by. Fine views of the fells, pop up to Lords Seat the nearby and lowish Marilyn afterwards - quite a scramble.

Easy start for the first pillar of the day. Made the short trip from the A66 fields empty and gates open into the field. Quite a contrast as you reach the pillar with the landfill to the north, still no smell today and the weather glorious. Views to the snow-topped peaks of the lakes and Cross Fell.

Visited on a walk from Greystoke to Newbiggin. The views all round are very good, particularly looking west towards the lakeland hills. An interesting feature is the small stone building just a few yards from the trig point. The story is that a local artist used to come up here to paint pictures of the views but, this being Cumbria, he was constantly rained off! So he commissioned the building of this structure to take shelter in! A nice story but how true.....??

Looking east with the artist's hut in view

Took similar approach as lonesome cowboy, no problem. This route avoids having to walk by the landfill site. Would have given higher mark save for the landfill site.

Spotted this from A66 lay-by earlier in year but decided not to venture further owing to adverse weather, time of day, etc. This time drove up side road and parked close to field. Cattle were lower down and too busy grazing to bother me. Good views towards Lakeland Fells and to Penrith and Pennines.
