From Litton, up onto the ridge for the Firth Fell pillar, then a flat walk to here following the wall all the way. Pillar has lost its centre cap, an asphalt plug replaces; rear and LHS sight holes open. Several bits of the top screed are missing. Cloud rolling in restricted any views there might have been.

Parked at Yockenthwaite and followed the Dales Way to Beckermonds. From there made the slog up the fell with my own biblical swarm of flies following me all the way to the ridge top wall.White pillar stood out well on the skyline. Dramatic low cloud and gloom to the west; sunny views to the east. The walk back down from Horse Head Gate to Yockenthwaite on the Pennine Journey route was the highlight of the day.

Parked at Raisgill sd905788 and headed SW on a 1hour steep and gradual walk to the summit. Horse Head trig commands fabulous panoramic views. Some flaking of cement around the spider. The pillar is in need of a good coat of paint. Our first experience of continual rain prompted us to sack off further trigs and we chose to return via Beckermonds and the Dales Way. This turned out to be an unexpected surprise full of interesting limestone features which has enhanced my mark for interest. Green Field Beck was very low due to the unprecedented dry weather conditions we have experienced exposing long stretches of dry river beds. Yockenthwaite Cave and a nearby circular set of stones, located as a star on the ordnance survey map, added even further interest. A thoroughly smashing walk.

Bagged as YSM519 Horse Head. Good zig zag path all the way to the ridge and then followed the path at the wall to the trigpoint. Meet some mountain rescuers with a lovely Jack Russell and a Golden Retriever. Due to taking an off road route which was ill advised and didn't save me any time and having to go back on the path, I kept Mr U2 waiting at the trigpoint for some time. Had a lovely cream scone and coffee at Katie's honesty cafe, yum yum 👅

Great 15 mile walk from Buckden, along lovely river path to Yockenthwaite up and down Yockenthwaite Moor, not too boggy at all, hard to believe its apparently the boggiest mountain in Yorkshire! up A Pennine Journey to Horse Head trig and along ridge to Horse Head Moor summit, across nearly impassable bogs to Birks Fell and along ridge to Firth Fell trig back down to Buckden. Clear and sunny. Much better views than I was expecting.

Parked near Halton Gill at the bottom of the zig zag path up. Car park full at Halton gill on a sunny afternoon and I rather think the guy from along the road was not impressed where I parked despite the fact the car was completely off the road on the dry verge. I just ignored his arm waving from a 150 yards away. Hazy views today and despite the recent warmer weather still a good dump of snow behind the walls.

Ended up back down at Buckden, where I started - a pint at the Buckden Inn was very welcome after what was quite a slog out and back. Trig in good condition with resin/cement plug. Good views between the rain fronts, especially towards Pen-y-Ghent.

Out on a walk from Litton to enable a friend to visit the top of Birks Fell - her last English Nuttall. Continued along the wall side to enable me to bag this pillar and the one at Cosh Outside and also to enable me to visit some of the caches along the way. The pillar is highly visible being white and standing proud. Unfortunately, for us, it is on the west side of the wall and we were on the east side. A quick climb over soon had us to it. In very good condition. The views on a near perfect day were better than wonderful.

Second visit in marginally better weather, at least I could see it from over 100 yards away this time! Wet & windy. This log mainly for info - I came across from Cosh Outside along the ridge top (feint path exists) - easy to traverse as a lot of the walls are in disrepair (you do have to jump from one side to the other at times) - took just over an hour. When you get to Eller Car Moss and meet the ROW keep on the north side of the wall as the walls ahead have stiles/gates - not so on the southern side. Steep drop into Foxup. Circular from Horton.

Dark & brooding!

Starting from my campsite at Buckden I followed the Dales Way path until I reached the stonebridge at Yockenthwaite and then leaving the Dales Way I started the ascent to Horses Head. From this point onward to the summit and back down again, other than the sheep I did not see another living soul not even the Sykes Family. This seems a lonely place even the path way is covered in lush grass up to about halfway - not that well trodden at all. Maybe it was the excertions of yesterdays Buckden Pike walk but this hill felt unrelenting in its ascent , however on reaching the summit the views were excellent , particularly looking west towards Penyghent and Whernside. The top of the Trig has some slight damage , the O/S website lists it as slightly below 2000 feet with a computing year of 1951 and the height a/s/l at 605.332 metres (1986 feet).

Brought the family with me this time! Bagged on a 9.5 mile circular walk from Halton Gill to Horse Head and Cosh Outside. Clear, overcast day and very few people about.

Approached from Halton Gill then carried on to Cosh Outside. Misty start but it soon cleared revealing fantastic views.

Another whitewashed trig on a brightish day with a pleasant breeze. The hills are getting wilder as I head for the east coast. A curlew over the summit wall (nesting?) nearby is not happy with me being here.

Just happened to be within 50m on the other side of the wall whilst controlling the Orienteering event for Sept 16th. Hadn't bothered to visit when doing BirksHead/HorseHead Marylyn some four years ago because it isn't the highest point by quite a few metres.

All credit where it's due - it's a bit of slog up from Yockenthwaite, well done Charlie (and Gary). I came up from Buckden, following the river. At Yockenthwaite I headed up the bridleway that, today, was effectively a stream. The cloud was so low that I was walking in dense mist/rain and a howling face on wind all the way to the summit. The wall's good as it guides you to the trig, without it I wouldn't have bothered. 'Charlie spotted it from 400 yards', I spotted from about 40 feet!! What was supposed to be 'dry' weather (Met Office) turned up just as I got on the bus to come back to Leeds (3 hours too late - the weather that is). Ignore the score as the big 'G' showed me who's really in charge today! No cars, on foot. (Bus to Buckden).

Superb views this morning, although a chill wind kept the visit to a minimum. Bagged along with the other two along the ridge (Firth Fell and Middlesmoor Pasture), a faint path links all three, although a little boggy in places.

As the mist cleared this brightly painted trig came into view. A boggy walk over from Birks Fell.

A gleaming white trig that Charlie(9) spotted from 400 yds away! Absolutely perfect walking conditions with a blustery wind. The views were magnificent in all directions, including Fountains Fell, all Three Peaks, Yockenthwaite Moor and Buckden Pike. We ascended from Yockenthwaite and did a circular walk that took us down to Beckermonds and back via Deep Dale.
