Originally parked at the end of the road but the cliffs are to high and too steep. Nice spot though. Parked near the Outdoor Centre and followed the ridge to the trig. Driving rain slightly damped my spitits but the views and situation more than made up for it.

Another of those interesting looking places on the A to Z/OS map. Normally go to the busier Arnside side - this is a really magical place. Hundreds of waders - egrets particularly showy and lots of fieldfares as the tide races in. Last trig of the holiday (boo!) but a great end.

Parked at the beach and walked along. Rude was in so had to retrace my steps and find a way going up. Soon found it and followed wee track all the way to the pillar. Gailforce wind here as well and nearly blown off my feet again. Seemed to be the reoccurring story today. The sun came out and I tried to enjoy the views of the bay as best I could in the wind.

Excellent circular walk from Grange which also included Hampsfell and a couple of other tumps. There is a strong case for this being the best low lying viewpoint on the English coast. Top of the pillar has seen some very slight damage.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS measurement. SITE VISIT: Approached from northwest. Parked at south end of Holy Well Lane at SD390739 but be aware of rising tides if leaving car for a while. A steep path leads up the rock fsace where a minimal amount of scrambling is required. Once on the summit plateau the trig is visible a short distance away. Grazing peninsula. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces north, ~9°. Vented through three sight holes, east vent plugged, innards blocked with debris. Open 360° panorama, hazy on day of visit.

Visited with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - to this Wainwright Outlying Fell location. Visible and easy access. Not on right of way but there is a gated path up from the Outdoor Centre. Pillar in good condition except for a missing plug. Not at any great height but much higher than the surrounding area so that on a glorious day like to day the views are quite stunning. Also managed to find nearby geocache.

In consecutive order from S5588 - first time I'm aware I've done this ! Notices about bird protection from March to June - so the scramble route may be banned whilst the Perigrines are nesting.

top a little chipped, no cap or plug. Nice headland, fine view. Steep slithery path leads up from car park, or an easier one from further N. First time I'd been since the cockle-pickers drowned a few years ago - a big wide track leads out onto the sands.

I love this spot - it is nice and walkable from Kent's Bank in an afternoon when you are stranded with no car! Very windy, but fantastic views across the sands.

Most direct ascent is via a path at the entrance to the carpark area, a bit steep and dslippery if wet. Good views. Plug missing.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in July 1949 costing £8.0s.11½d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station SD47/22 in the Barrow-in-Furness block. Flush bracket S5589 was levelled for height in 1971. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1976. Still had a stamped font OS plug in the spider centre by July 1991.
