Top cap missing, replaced with mortar plug; LHS sight hole open. Extensive views E, all other directions obsured by trees.

Bagged as YSM173 Greystoke Park. Parked at gate, nipped over fence, up large track past Quarry and took path towards the trigpoint. About 50m away took a man path towards trig to be confronted by a crag! No way I was climbing that but I could see the trig on top of it! Back tracked to about 100m before the trigpoint and headed to fallen wall and up to trigpoint, took a track back that skirted Quarry and ended up back on the track I started on. Marking as slightly damaged as chunks are missing from the top and the sides.

Didn't know about the car park so stopped on the verge by the roadside gate. Warning notices about possible racing but nobody around today. Track up to the quarry then around it's southern side to the pillar. Views becoming limited as the trees grow. Followed track to the north of the quarry for an easier return.

Ysm173 I got to the main gate and there were notices posted that a car rally was taking place. I decided to leave the car there and walk up the main track. Got to the top and met the rally people who directed me to the wee track through the forest. I left this when I spotted the fallen wall and went over this and up to the trig on a very wet morning. Cheers.

Took the path from the car park and in to the quarry. Had similar experience as Walker Dan, could see the pillar from the quarry top but access looked awkward. Retraced steps and went to right of quarry and a local pointed out a way. A short way along is a broken down wall on the left with a fallen tree by it. Over the wall and bear right to the pillar. Average views today and agree with the polyfilla comments.

Followed the wrong path through the trees and could see the trig 150ft away perched on the edge of a cliff. Had to trek back and quickly found a path to the top. Views a bit restricted due to trees but would have been a fine viewpoint before they were planted.

On my regular long drive from Southampton to Perthshire listening to the Saints surprising 1-0 defeat on the car radio. Needed to clear my head after this shattering news, so a shortish drive from the M6, and soon I was striding in the fresh air to reach trig S6953 nicely positioned on a tussocky hillock. Slight cracking to the fabric; concrete filled cap.

A wet morning in the Lakes so lets go trigging. Luckily I had donned full wet weather gear as it was not the rain that was the problem but the sidden long grass. From the car park I walked up and through the quarry compound which was a mistake. I should have continued past the quarry compound entrance and then there is a feint track off to the left. The trig had a nice marbled appearance to it.

There is material being leached from the inside of the pillar through cracks. Much of the lower half is now white. Perhaps it is a white mold that has grown up inside the damp cracks?

Vented through SE sight hole. Did it not start raining heavily or what? Had to carefully dry off cameras back at car. Photographed 26/05/2010, GRP.
