From road to SSE on RoW initially then skirted edge of quarry to find pillar in a fallow field margin. Top cap has been lost, replaced with asphalt plug; RHS sight hole open. Extensive views N and W, other directions obscured by trees.

Located west side of a quarry. This quarry is overgrown with trees. The trig still has a good splash of white paint on its west side.

At the edge of an old quarry in a local conservation area. As the gate was open rather than following the PROW took the track through the quarry, another gate led to the field containing the pillar. Again dry underfoot today so kept dry all day. Decent views.

The view from the trig is pretty boring unless you like sheep. The approach path is better as it skirts around a LNR in an old limestone quarry.

Not having checked previous logs I'd begun to wonder if it was gone to the bottom of the quarry, but no it's fine.

a northern end of an old quarry. The contour ring to the south must represent a 240 metre ring for the depression rather that a 260m that one might see looking on the map!!

Down the lane, parked in gate. 'Don't block the gate,' says Pam. 'Move up a bit. I have to wait here whilst you visit. The farmer might come.' So I move up, dropping my nearside front into deep mud. No way was it coming out! It's the sort of lane that has one car per day - and the post van came by. He got the farmer, he brought his tractor and rope, and I was 20 lighter. I'll live and learn! Pillar is round the back of the quarry, and fine

Its mid summer so the path is overgrown and care needs to be taken not to stray too close to the edge of the quarry. There was a freshly dead sheep in foeld with the trig in it with flies just gathering.

Located in recently-mown field north of quarry. Parked on verge and followed footpath sign. Stiles are in excellent condition, footpath is a wilderness ! Extensive views all round - Scotland and the Solway Firth, the Pennines and The Lakeland fells. A lovely part of Cumbria which is not overcrowded.We returned via the fields which have good gates.

Tertiary station pillar completed 13th June 1952 costing 20.15s.0d. Column in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces 324 NW. Vented through SW sight hole. Recent ferocious fire in quarry - lots of nearby trees damaged. Photographed 26/05/2010, GRP.

At the end of a nature conservation area which is the old quarry. Use the pedestrian gate sooner than go down the public footpath. Good views of the Caldbeck Fells. Tarmac plug.
