Revisit. Found free safe roadside parking, please PM me for details (personal contacts only). Forest walk in lovely surroundings makes up for loss of view due to trees. Blurb to follow.

Geocaching in the area and decided to bag a few trigs and benchmarks on route, good track most of the way but some of the tracks we wanted to take on the return journey only existed in the imagination of the map maker which extended our walk a few kilometers today.

Awake early and a frosty bright start, so rushed to get the 8.30 bus from Ambleside out to Outgate. A pleasant walk along well marked paths. The woods were a change to yesterday's fell tops. The skies darkening as I reached the pillar and the promised rain soon arrived. Headed North to descend to Lake shore and along to Wray. A 15 min wait for bus, caught for the ride and on board sightseeing to Coniston and immediately back to Ambleside. Glad to have got a medium walk and a trig in.

Walked from Far Sawrey but took the long route,dropping down to the lake shore and along to Bell Grange then along the tops to the summit. Virtually no view from the summit as we were in thick mist,10 YARDS visibility.

A nice walk up to the trigpoint from the car park at Red Nab (on the banks of Windermere to the north). There is a path/track all the way to the top. Walk then took us on to Far Sawry and then back north along the track by the lake. Would never have thought to go for a walk in this area, but it was well worth it with some good views and a nice walk back along the side of the lake.

I was leading a family group of 35 on a walk up here. It was therefore a bit embarassing that I could not find the trig point. I resorted to using a GPS whilst they all sat down and had lunch. Found it after about ten minutes and then realised I had not made a note of the grid reference where they were having lunch! I'm just glad mobile phones have been invented.

Very enjoyable walk up from Near Sawrey passing Moss Eccles Tarn and Three Tubs Tarn, where theres a boat house (very strange for such a small tarn) the trig sits on a rocky outcrop which forms a sort of picnic table and chairs! No views due to mist but plenty of wild life about. My penultimate Cumbrian Trig of to get the last one now. Great Stickle

We parked at Far Sawrey and took the track that heads off behind the pub, opposite the village hall (where there is parking). The path was a bit confusing in the woodland but if you follow the sign for Hawkshead you will evetually arrive there - there's a small fingerboard for the viewpoint. The pillar is of local stone and in good conditon. Tarmac plug. View partially obscured by pine trees.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in August 1949, cost not on record. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station SD47/20 in the Barrow-in-Furness block. Flush bracket S5641 was levelled for height also in 1950. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1976. Stone built job. Original OS spider centre plug gone - plugged with tar.
