From Talkin Head Fm. Good RoW to NY 5683 5583, then mapped farm track which wasn't up to much. A stone wall to negotiate. Pillar has a fair bit of the top screed missing; composite cap plugging the central tube; rear sight hole open. Views not noted, it was blowing a real hoolie.

Parked at the gate to the north of the trig and followed a track all the way up, passed the cairns. Low cloud meant we couldn't fully appreciate the view.

Parked in the small car park at the end of the road at Talkin Head Farm then followed good tracks to the trig with no need of any wall climbing.

Trekked across from Cold Fell Pike trig, a lovely walk on a cold clear frosty day. Footpath all the way (it doesn't look much used and is often wet underfoot) following the fence to the saddle then up to Kelky Fell... good views across the Solway Firth and over to the Blencathra part of the lakeland fells. There's a lot of stone pillars by the trig, a couple of dozen or more, making it like a small version of Nine Standards Rigg. It's surprising how few people have logged this trig... an easy climb with a good view.

A fantastic viewpoint with the 20 or so 'stone men' adding greatly to the scene. Pity the pillar (as most it has to be said) is not in sparkling white paint. Perhaps someone local could take it upon themselves to do the honours?

Good views over the Solway Plain and to the fells of the Western Lakes. Kelky Fell/Talkin Fell has several large (ca. 2 metre high) cairns. These are visible in the photo.
