Parked on lane in little parking area near LA8 0LS. Walked along path for a short while then turned right up through the ferns to grassy slope. Short steep walk up to the trig. Great views all round.

Sat nav wummin was messing me around to get here so switched her off and used common sense. Parked up and followed track to pillar. I didn't stay long at the pillar as I was blown off my feet twice and struggled to get a photo.

Easy, breezy walk up from the Station pub, slightly misty but far reaching views. Spider has Travis 2000 2005 punched into it - in memory of a dog walked up here? N and S s/holes open, as is centre (rubble filled). Base rather eroded but otherwise vgc.

We parked to the north on the little yellow road. A pleasant grassy summit much enjoyed by the local dog walkers. The plug is missing and there were some flowers thrust into the hole - I never though of a pillar as a vase before, a bird table, yes. Painted white. Good views.

I wandered lonely as a cloud, blah blah blah..... Instead of a plug,a bunch of effing daffodils. Otherwise OK. A great spot, often admired from Wordsworth's nemesis, the railway. A good view of the Kent estuary and the southern fells against a pink sky.
