From Oughtershaw, RoW to the wall (SD 8658 8092), then followed that along to the hill top and trig. Pillar sits in a wide strip between a wall and stock fencing in rough grass moorland. Top has lost some screed and a little concrete leaving 2 spider arm ends exposed. Central tube has a mortar plug; RHS sight hole sealed, other 3 open - the LHS hole has some damage around its outer extremity. Extensive moorland views and to adjacent ridges.

Our second of the day. Walked from Cave Hill northeast along edge of forest. Observed a legal cage trap for pest bird species. After about 1.5km we entered the forest. The style is visible but you need to cross over a barbed wire gain access into the forest. Path exists to join up with the forest drive to Low Green Field Lings. Much of this has been felled and some of these forest roads now bridleways. Also some paths now defuncted. Approached this pillar via a ride. This trig is over a wire fence and within a stone wall. Great views of Ingleborough and the hills to the west and north.

Parked at SD851802 where the forest track/PROW meets the road just E of Low Green Field: not many other parking options. Followed the forest track E, then up and W, before freestyling up through the forest and then W on wet tussocky moorland to the trig. Not a sensible route as the forest roads and footpaths don't seem the same as on our 2005 OS 1:25000 map and with no phone signal couldn't access an updated version. Wind-blown trees make it slow going through the forest. Returned by heading due S through the forest to the footpath/track junction, then SE through newly-felled forest to the road 200m W of Low Green Field. Much quicker, but still a grind. Best bit of the circuit was the hundreds of marsh orchids by the forest track on the way up.

Done on an 11 mile, 2 trig circular walk. From Dodd Fell descended to the Pennine Way then the Dales Way down to Cam Houses. Followed the track at the side of the forest for a while then cut across the boggy moor to the trig. Good view of Ingleborough, Whernside and Buckden Pike. Continued along the very boggy path by the wall to Oughtershaw then followed the road back up to the car park near Fleet Moss.

Not much to recommend this one. The "path" up alongside a plantation from Cam Houses was a grassy slog, the continuation of it going south through the forest doesnt exist (tree felling), and the views are obscurred by higher fells. Still, it was quite peaceful up there.

Long long walk across from Cave Hill up tussocky grass along forest, then through tussocky fire break. Very hot day, meaning I was covered in swarms of flies. Decent views, could easily see across the valley to Cosh Outside, where I was heading next.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 20th September 1949 costing 42.6s.7d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SD96/T26 in 1951. Levelled for height also in 1951. Last maintained by the OS in June 1976. SITE VISIT: Three trig circuit starting and finishing near High Green Field. Probably best to park outside (derelict) Far Barn at SD835796. There is no suitable parking offered any further up this public road, and doing so will result in a politely worded note attached to windscreen. Approached from SW. After bagging Cosh Outside and Cave Hill, returned via mapped tracks to SD822784, turning left (NW) following this track to SD833801, then left up through woods following remains of old wall until out onto open hill. Direct route NE along boundary line to top. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with concrete. Flush bracket faces southeast, ~138. Vented through SW and NW sight holes. Full 360 open outlook. Retracing the final steps, returned via SD832804 following remains of old boundary wall SE down through woods and back to car. Found handwritten note affixed informing that this meadow is private, of SSSI status, and not to park there again.

From Oughtershaw via Dales Way to Cam Houses then up side of forest in fog. Cold, wet, gloomy, no view. Plod back to Oughtershaw along wall over tussocky pathless bog rather than risk indeterminate forest paths in the dark. A thoroughly enjoyable tramp.

Parked at entry to forest track at Low Green followed track round until a decent fire break in the forest allowed access to the open moor.There was a rough trail of sorts running between the fence and wall which was in a bad way today! following this the trig eventually came into view. The hard effort getting here was rewarded with my best view ever of Ingleborough trig is in vgc mortar plug freezing wind!

Chucking it down again after recent very warm spell. From just past Low Greenfield, took diagonal track marked on map to NW through forest: a big mistake. After few hundred metres large area of flattened trees halted progress, made diversions essential. Wet soggy forest then to large L-R path. Continuation of original track eventually found, boggy but emerged at stile out of forest. Wall followed to trig, but highest point some distance beyond. Hill aka Cam Rakes.

Walked up from Cam Houses over hard packed snow, using the peat ditches which took me almost directly tot he trig. Several feet of snow drifting around the walls and evidence of a recent wild camp beside the trig. Nothing special about the location. Stile at SD 83384 80541 leads to navigable track through forest to road at SD 83890 80394. Could see the tall cairn just along from TP2441 - Cosh Outside quite clearly from this trig, but didn't fancy the knee deep snowy slog up through the forest to reach it.

Came from Blea Moor. It was getting late and dark at Cam Houses, so with farmers permission, I headed straight down into the valley and straight up, to end up close to the trig. Very memorable. Tomorrow off to Cave Hill, the footpath down to the forestry track is a pig in snow, then doing the long ridge starting at Cosh

Real slog through the plantation and along the wall. I came from the NW, off the Pennine way, went trough the trees to the forst track, then along the track, then back through the tress. I must have been mad! Just follow the wall. Good condition, and great views

This was my second attempt to reach this trig point. Last year I tried to use the footpath (not a PROW but shown on the map) from Low Green Field, only to be beaten back (!) half a mile into the forest by dense and impenetrable vegetation. This time I came up from Oughtershaw, using the PROW as far as the forest fence at Pewet Moss then turning right and using the 'corridor' between the ridge wall and the forest fence all the way to the trig point. Occasionally this proved to be very overgrown and waterlogged so I just hopped through one of the many gaps in the wall onto the open fell until conditions improved, then I returned to the 'corridor'. The trig point is in reasonable condition and there are some excellent views from it. The descent of Cam Rakes to Cam Beck and thence Cam Houses proved wet under foot despite a long period of dry weather - goodness knows what it is like in winter! There was no evidence of the entrance or exit to the forest of the PROW so I stayed on the open moor - more pleasant anyway as I find walking in forests to be very claustrophobic. As one correspondent states this is an isolated and difficult to reach trig point but as it is one of the 57 trig points sited in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, all of which I am pledged to visit, then I had no choice!

definitely a trig tig only, good view to ingleberg though. trig not at highest point, better view from its position i guess. I came up from near low green fields along long switchback of forest road, starting along ROW. after the double back i looked out for a decent fire break in the pines- a good one led along a wall to the open moor. not the horror i was expecting! very boggy in parts along the ridge.

One of those 'out of the way' trigs that most hikers wouldn't really consider visiting other than to 'tig the trig'. No public RoW - although the Access Land will probably change this - no real view to call of - set at the back of forrestation and a bit out in the middle of nowhere and leading to ... well ... to be honest, nowhere - it's one of them you have to make the effort to get to. I came up from Cam Houses and followed a (muddy) track that ran up the moor with the woodland on the right (not the RoW through the wood.) When you reach the wall at the hill top turn left into a walled/fenced lane and follow it to the trig. The path through the wood at SD834860 is faint but OK and reaches the wide track at SD805834 but I couldn't find a route leading down to Low Green Field (as indicated on the OS map) so had to turn right along the wide stoney track to eventualy reach the track leading towards Low Birkwith Moor and ultimately Horton. No cars, on foot!
