Pillar is to west of wall. Ascended long narrow field from road. Gate at top gives access to field containing pillar. Parked opposite field where footpath and farm track join road.

Approached leaving road, from S, following walls, passing sheep that were not too concerned - (good parking area about 500m E along road). Top face of pillar (screed) about 30% eroded. Quite a number of thin surface cracks on 1 side face & 3 side edges. Good views of Howgills with Yarlside just visible above trees to S. Nice setting, but the sound of a barking dog was a bit unnerving.

Third five digit pillar of day. Found track from road near Kelleth but incorrectly headed right at top first from barn when it is behind the lefthand (West) wall. Meadow covered in wild flowers. Caught in very heavy rain shower.

Parked roadside for steep climb to trig sheep in field

Parked in entrance to track at NY 6629 0522 on south side of road (by 221m spot height on Explorer map) and walked directly across road and over wooden gate into a field of sheep, thereby avoiding cattle. I headed ENE along the wall to the trees at the E side of the field and then N up the steep hill along the wall. Yes the route can be seen from the top floor of a couple of houses at the eastern end of Kelleth village, but it did not feel preventatively exposed. I had to cross a barbed wire fence near the top but at least I was the right side of the wall for the pillar! 86m climb over about 450m - an average gradient of approx 1 in 5. Pillar has nice cap with thick raised letters but some missing concrete on top; FB faces W away from wall; E sighthole (wall side) open, all others plugged.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 27th May 1960, cost unknown. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NY71/T35 in 1961. Levelled for height also in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in June 1983. SITE VISIT: Road quiet and wide enough to allow parking with two wheels on steep north verge. Straight up steep slope, walls easily climbed without damage or injury. Pillar in fair condition, some weathering to top. Raised large wide letters. Flush bracket faces 281 west, across field. Vented through east sight hole. Views from east clockwise round to north, NE aspect blocked by trees.
