Pillar has a couple of minor chips - some ground erosion - spider has tar plug. Approached from parking area next to bridge over Lownorth Beck - fairly pleasant walk (albeit a motorbike event was taking place) - nice grassy table hill. Nice views - sea visible.

Followed road its end at SE946957. Turned left by farm buildings with "no motor vehicles" sign. 3 gates led onto area used for motorbike scrambling. Way indicated by further "no motor vehicles sign" across ford. A few stones to use leaning on bike for balance. Very steep and greasy grass track reaches access to High Langdale End house and then on to forestry track. Left bike and found way up hill to left (East) to pillar. Felt really hard won!

Easy walk up from Langdale End via Howden Hill. Walked back via Morra Head where there was an off-road motocross event going on. Even though the designated footpaths here are off-limits, a lot of the tracks roundabout had been trashed by these bikes. What should have been a nice quiet weekend walk became a very muddy and noisy one.

Walked over from Coomb Hill over the stepping stones and through Langdale End – had to make the excursion up Howden Hill which has a permissive path from the north. It’s a pity there is not a trigpoint up there – a great little mountain with spectacular views. I bit of a slog up to the Langdale trigpoint through the new forest. Returned through Morra Head Wood – this area is used by off road motor bikes. I know they need somewhere to practice their sport but the woodland way beyond their allocated area is being scared and destroyed. Made a detour on the way back for a drink at the Moorcock Inn – looks like a great old pub – but unfortunately it was closed.

After good experience at previous hill (Coombe Hill) was happy to drive along forest tracks to get close to this one - but don't try this at 20mph. Note this time GPS recorded exact position! (whereas Coombe Hill was miles out in the trees)

Good views to west, north and east. Nice walk up to it over Langdale Rigg from the hamlet of Langdale End. There is now a Permissive Footpath to summit of Howden Hill just north west of Langdale End.
