Easy stroll to this one but the trig is fenced in great coastal views here.

A train trundled by whilst here - I did wonder if I was actually on railway property as there seemed to be no more barriers between me and the tracks.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS measurement. SITE VISIT: Parked on northeast verge just south of track at NX995069. Direct line across grazing field opposite, trig behind easily climbed barbed fence. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre has recently been cemented over with what looks like Elastoplast. Flush bracket faces northeast, ~46. Vented through SE and NW sight holes, innards probably blocked with flowing cement. 360 open outlook.

Stronger animal fencing with barbed wire across the top, now in place around the field. I managed to climb over this to flatten the bracken for photo. If you can get a photo without doing this it would be much better, as I wouldn't recommend fence-climbing. Or take a child which you can easily lift over the fence.

Parking at side of minor road between Braystones and Nethertown, by bridge at 13m spot height. Short walk across a rough pasture, then up a steep hill and over a substantial b/w fence to the trig, which is located in a prominent position overlooking the railway line and the Irish Sea. Pillar is in good condition; original cap in place; 2 sight holes open. Good views NW to St Bees Head and E to the Lakeland fells.

Parked next to aforementioned bridge. Went along north side of stream (into motocross track), and then up slope and over fence. Very hard slog through deep vegetation up to trig, stumbling into invisible rabbit holes and dodging residual barbed wire. The delimma was now complete. I really didn't want to have to return the same way, but the heifers in the 'easy route' field had all decided to come and inspect me. So I talked to them reassuringly, and hopped over into their field, and was then walked as much as I could along the steep slope towards car. They followed me along the top of the slope. A 10 yard dash at the end, and I was able to leap over the gate back into the road about 5 seconds before 20 tons of flesh came charging down the slope. Went back to talk to the cows over the gate again, and they back away - but would that have happened if I hadn't been able to exit the field so quick, or I had stumbled and fell.

Parked at bridge to E (you can see the trig from the road at this point). Strolled across the field (wet near the gate). For such a low trig, the views are superb.

We parked at the field entrance to the east. There was a chap with a camper van in the field north of the stream who uses the banks for m trial bike riding. Out of politeness we asked if we might go to the trig and in a broad Irish brogue he said he was squatting there anyway and to carry on. Nice views of the coast. Return back to the car south of the stream through cow pasture. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Approached from NE via grazing field. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in October 1949 costing 7.11s.3d. In 1952 this maker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY11/10 in the Workington block. Flush bracket S5225 was levelled for height in 1965. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in December 1976. Spider retained original OS centre plug with deep indented letters. No photos taken.
