After the morning kayaking on Rydal water it was good to get a different perspective from above. We took a man path from the caves which are also worth a visit to the trig - first local stone trig bagged and a fine specimen too. Started to snow whilst on top but luckily we'd seen 360 degree views before the cloud decended. ;-)

Dropped off early at Ambleside YHA after a few days at Buttermere. Changed and set off as the rain started,, not wanting to stay inside all day. Some road walking to start, before ascending on the bridleway via Brow Head Farm to the East. In cloud by the top. Carried on to descend to Grasmere and follow low level route back by Rydal water and another lengthy road walk. Rain beginning to soak through clothing and so glad to get back.

Accessed from the Grasmere side, lovely walk up from Red Bank, Loughrigg Terrace etc. No 99 on my Wainwright list. As Wainwright suggests this must be one of the most picturesque spots to site a trig point. Visibility reasonable with a spot of sun breaking through onto the Langdales. will definitely put on the re-visit list.

I was staying in Ambleside with Christine for a few days and this was the nearest pillar. I parked, somewhat cheekily, off the track just inside the gate to the National Trust property at NY 34030 05503 then we set off north along the track until we came to the start of the path up the hill. It was a little rugged and steep in some places but Christine, who suffers from fibromyalgia and vertigo, managed to reach the summit with a little help on the tougher parts. There were quite a few people coming and going as the weather was pleasant enough with only the occasional few spots of rain. The vista was well worth the climb with an excellent view of Grasmere on route. The pillar is built from local stone and is in generally good condition. The centre plug has been replaced with a plastic bung.

Not sure that any trig in the lakes could score lower than a 7, even on a horrible day! Got this one after an six hour journey from Devon. Walked up from the south to the east of the tarn where we had parked. Nice views up great langdale valley and down towards Grasmere.

Charming little hill, normally packed I'm sure with tourists from nearby Grasmere, but not at 08:30 on this drizzly Saturday morning. Picked this one up on the way to the Langdales via Silver How and Blea Rigg. A good day with almost no rain, despite the dire predictions from Metcheck.

The last day of our 2007 trip to the Lakes and we were slowly heading back towards Yorkshire. We debated about climbing this one but it was a perfect day and one should take opportunities when they come I think. We paid the car park fee and ascended via Loughrigg Terrace. The ascent is like climbing many flights of stairs. At the top stood a couple of senior citizens. 'They must have been helicoptered up here ' I whispered to my wife. Beautiful views all round, perfect weather, a memorable trip.

Very wet walk up, rain from above and soaked bracken from below the FP is the obvious choice but if you want to be off the paved way then a little south of the FP on the langdale back road there is a track marked on the 25k that climbs from a pull in. After the kissing gate make for the track in the small gully not the obvious one by the wall and you lead direct to the trig. The alternative is a bracken slog (to my cost) not much by view today but they look promising

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in May 1949 costing 18.6s.3d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T63 in the Barrow-in-Furness seconday block. Flush bracket S5470 was levelled for height also in 1950. This trig point was last inspected by the OS on 16th July 2000 recorded as maintenance required. Stone built pillar. Flush bracket was still in situ (30/06/1991) spider had stamped font OS boss. I suppose that's gone too by now. Sorry no photo.

Westmorland. It was a glorious Autumn day and the colours were superb around Grasmere, as seen from Loughrigg.

(Added retrospectively in 2011) A beautiful day, a great walk up, and perhaps their first hill in the Lake District for the young ones. I didn't record the F/B at the time, but it is readable in the photos.

This would be about my second or third trigpoint. I'm the screaming brat on the right with my dad. I would be about five years old so it makes it 1963. I grew to love the hills in later years (must have been hungry!)
