Came from Malham and The Weets pillar by ROWs and part of Mastiles Lane. Left bike near beginning of road down to Threshfield. Convenient gate (although warning of bull) and a straight forward climb to summit with no walls to cross and only a few sheep present. Again, stood to watch dark clouds rolling across hills.

made my way up the track next to the pub in kilnsey and should have climbed the gate marked "bull in field" as further up the track there are no places to cross so had to negotiate the wall and wire fencing to reach the pillar which is a few hundred yards away,thankfully i didnt see a bull!!nice views,interesting stone circle around the trig.

Drove up the minor road from Grassington as far as it goes and then its a 20-30 minute walk. Trig in good condition with original plug but it seems to have tilted a little and has a concave top. A cool, overcast and misty day so the views weren't brilliant but there are interesting limestone pavements nearby and evidence of ancient lead mining.I was also watching some curlews trying to see off a flock of gulls.

No bull in the field - although I kept looking over my shoulder for the whole ascent up to the trig - this is a big field! Walked in thru Bordley and what a bloody awful place that is - filthy, dirty, smelly place - it was good to get out onto the hill for a breath of fresh air. Grand views from the trig. Shame the snow is going - its been a grand few weeks of easy walking without the usual winter mud! Walked back down to Gordale Scar and then along the Pennine Way back to Airton - good days walk with 14 miles and 3 trigs bagged.

Visited this one on a deviation from an overnight walk and camp between Grassington & Malham. Clambered over the dry stone wall at Mastiles Lane and made my way up to the summit. The large rock formation on top of the Trig in the previous log has since been removed or pushed off. An overcast day with some drizzle but still some decent views back towards Conistone & Kilnsey and ahead towards Malham. Trig in good nick with all features present. Ordnance Survey lists the computing year as 1951 and the height a/s/l as 450.494 metres (1478 feet).

Beautiful clear, cold, sunny November morning. The easiest way to approach this one is to walk along Malham Moor Road (from the Thresfield direction) until you reach a metal gate crossing the road with the sign 'Bordley Green Farm' attached. Go through the gate but turn right immediately North Eastish following the wall up the hill. Continue along the wall as it turns North Westish until you reach the junction of two wall. It's an easy climb over the top and the trig is not far away. Lovely views in all directions.

Tigged as an alternative to Meugher on today's outing (which includes New Pasture Edge trig - see log). It was actually just as misty up here with very poor visibility but given the walling it wasn't too difficult. Walked up the road from Theshfield that eventually turns into Malham Moor Road, here I turned right along the bridleway, upon reaching the first wall I turned left (noted the gate sign 'Beware Bull In Field' - such a comfort when visiblity is 50 - 100ft at best!). Followed the wall to eventually veer eastish and reach the narrow walled/fenced section that heads towards Kilnsey. At this point I scrambled over the wall and just sort of headed NE in what I thought was the right direction - couldn't see a thing (on a good day it's probably a piece of pi**). Got the trig - which is surrounded by a nice circle of stones - returned the way I came to follow the narrow track between wall/fence to eventually reach Mastiles Lane then Kilnsey and back to Grassington. Turned out to be a 19+ miler on a grotty day. Score is irrelevant today.

Kilnsey Moor Yep, the mist was that bad!!
