Beautiful walk with grey blankets swathing Lake District mountains and Bowland whilst the western fells bathe in sun. Martins shrieking in the old quarry buildings, quick bag from layby down on the main road bagging the Marilyn of Lambrigg first.

Walked up from the quarry. Great views. There was something happening on the M6 - most of the bridges over the southbound carriageway had people on, all expecting something from the north.

Lovely 360 degree views of Skiddaw, Haysham, Pen-y-gent and Howgills...abit of a gem! Trig had a chunk out of one of the top corners, so status now slightly damaged

Parked on access road for the quarry & then followed the ROW straight up to the trig. Plenty to take in here,great views of the Howgills,Killington Lake reservoir & the working quarry from the path on way up & of the Lune valley & wind farm from the trig & return on the path. Very unusual & well worth a visit.
