Parked by Brumston Bridge and followed the Corpse Road up the fell. Lovely view of Sale Fell on the way up. Murky cloud at the summit prevented any views from there. Pillar in good condition except some damage to the rendered top surface. Returned down steeper eastern side as marked route found on-line.

Parked a little bit further east along the road from the old school in a small muddy lay bye near to access gate onto Ling fell. Took the direct line straight up the fell towards the trig point,but returned Around the fell on the marked tracks on the map.

Parked in a lay-by next to the old school ny176294. Followed the bridleway SW towards Highside Farm. A well crafted gate into Edwards Wood leads you to the open access land. No evidence of this plantation on the 1:25000 OS map. Interesting style embellished with dedications. Direct yomp to the summit provided panoramic views of snowcapped higher mountains. Paragliding on Sale Fell. On descent observed a stoat,white in colour, scurry into a pile of stones.

Surely that's not a "7"... having given up on the higher hills - more heavy rain we grab this lovely hill on the edge of the fells. From that small layby and back via the Corpse Road. After a visit to Cockermouth visit the lowly and surprisingly beautiful Watch Hill (Marilyn).

Roadside parking to NE. Pleasant, if stiff, walk up over rough heathery ground, there is a path from approx NY 18435 28630. Odd shaped slightly tapered stone-built pillar with top screed missing several chunks, hence 'Slightly Damaged'. Cap missing, asphalt plug; LHD side sight hole open; a decidely wonky '1' on the FB. Good panoramic views with plenty of identifiable Lakeland peaks on display.

Stone built pillar. Low rounded hill in northern Lake District near Cockermouth. Car parked on minor road near Burthwaite, a few roadside spaces available close to gate giving access to open fell. Ascent via Corpse Road, then grassy path swinging up to the summit. Very wet and windy day after unseasonably humid start to October. Would be a good viewpoint on a nice day.

Revisit to obtain GPS reading forgotten in June. Parked on verge at NY182291. Direct line up northeastern slope from perimeter path. Stone built secondary station pillar in good condition. Completed 24th November 1949 costing 16.6s.6d. 360 panorama from top. I do wish everybody would use this site respectfully and log their trig bags properly, rather than the `I was here` approach. Incomplete logs containing the likes of `FB number unlogged`, `condition unknown` etc, are not helpful and just spread out good informative logs in a `wood for the trees` fashion. Previous loggers `melch, morcambe monkey, splash, peebs, gowrie`, please put some effort into these logs - waste of web space as they stand!

A masonry pillar in very good condition with excellent views of the Skiddaw range and also across the Cumbrian plain to the Solway, Scotland and Criffel. I climbed the fell from the south, firstly crossing Wythop Moss that due to the recent dry weather was not the morass that I was expecting. From this angle the fell is akin to the side of a house and equally unremitting.

After completing a without Pillar Rock circuit of E+W 2000' summits in the burning sun on Fleetwith pike yesterday it was down to earth with driving rain and a painful hit of the plastic. This evening walk was fortunately tied in to a window in the rain and though the mist was down the trig itself was in grand shape. Parked at the end of the old copse road and took advantage of the fell having been declared access land earlier in the week.
