Revisit. Approached from north. Parking for several cars off high point in road, Kiln Bank Cross, SD214932. Passed through east side of Stickle Pike. Keeping west of streams, the route continues southwest then south east to the summit. Grazing top within LDNP. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains replacement OS centre cap with deep indented letters, the original was still present in 1991 and the older shallow engraved type. Flush bracket faces WNW, compass measurement 301. Vented through NE and SE sight holes. Full 360 panoramic view.

The bridleway and public footpath is the best ascent but we stupidly went off piste and had to fight our way up to the ridge for an hour through waist/head height bracken. The views are fantastic for such a low fell, and the walk north along the ridge is a corker

Another trig painted with the same pot of paint as Caw?! There's another claim to fame in my eyes: a missing OS plug has reappeared!! That's a first for me.

Great Stickle OS plug has reappeared!! Reported missing as recently as Sept 2013. Has Mr Allen Key had a pang of conscience? Only realised that it was supposed to be missing when I logged it, otherwise would have checked more thoroughly to see whether it was actually fastened down.

Had just visited nearby Caw, then climbed Stickle Pike, so it seemed only natural to incorporate Great Stickle into our itinerary. As already mentioned by an earlier trig-pointer, Great Stickle is less impressive than Stickle Pike and perhaps the names ought to be switched!! However, a clear and sunny day (albeit rather windy) provided good, far-ranging view towards Black Combe and the sea to the south. A grey trig point, in good condition and easily accessible. There's a small and rather forlorn cairn perched on the rocks beside it too.

Well this is it folks my last Cumbrian Trigpoint I make it number 242 Parked Kiln Bank Cross and went straight up Stickle Pike wonderful place then followed the grassy path over to Great Stickle less impressive than Stickle Pike (I think the names should be swapped round ?) but I don’t care after 18 months hunting mainly Cumbrian Trigs here it is ! My first grey painted Trig odd that ! Not much in the way of views today due to the misty cloud but still a lovely place, walked back over Tarn Hill (well named -six small Tarns to be seen) then down round Stickle Tarn and down to the car. I will only be bagging the more notable Trigs around the uk from now on and I’ve got some Wainewrights to see to.

We walked from the Broughton Mills/Duddon Valley road summit,great walk as always just a pity the fells around here are becoming ruined by off road motorbikes.Lovely view from the summit,the grey paint coated on the trig is now peeling.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in May 1949 costing 15.6s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T17 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S5453 was levelled for height also in 1950. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1977. Spider still had original OS centre plug with shallow engraved letters in July 1991.
