Circular walk on pleasant spring day from the very interesting Duddon Iron Furnace to three fine viewpoints.Barrow-Swinside Stone Circle-Knott Hill(up from west with one nasty wall to climb and down east to north of Cragg Hall with no walls to climb)-Mount Wood.

Parked just south of Cragg Hall (space for a couple of cars) then walked via the stone circle, boggy footpath and access land. Step stile near the crest of the wall. Excellent views

A superb viewpoint we walked from Broadgate,first to the Sunkenkirk stone circle then up to the fell top,at around 1000 feet high it is an easy walk for the views,a nice walk on a beautiful cold frosty day.

A fantastic spot with views of the Lake District and the estuary below. Did a circular to take in the stone circle. Definately a steep final climb with wall to get over.Considering that this trig is at 281m, the views are hard to beat for the amount of energy used up.

We parked just south of the track that leads to Swinside Farm. We followed the track almost to the farm (very impressive stone circle at Sunkenkirk) then headed south on the footpath. We accessed the pature with the trig by a wall stile (steps sticking out either side) to the north west of the trig near where the wall joins another (broken down one) heading into the valley. Good views. Tarmac plug.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in May 1949 costing 9.14s.10d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T30 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S5386 was levelled for height in 1956. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in November 1976. Spider centre plugged.

Plain pillar on rough grassland. Good to look west to see the sun setting over Black Combe climbed earlier in the day.
