Fair gasping for air on this thundery humid day - staying over in Tebay but the weather so apocalyptic sounding make a trek to the coast. A lovely wild spot - Wasdale Fells becoming smoky with cloud the sand bars of Ravenglass below us. Black Coombe sweltering in a greying haze at out side. Marilyn.

Revisit: Stone built pillar in good condition. Spider retains an OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters which looks suspiciously like it has been repatriated from another pillar. Flush bracket faces NW, compass measurement 297. All four sight holes open, pillar bolt partly visible but for plastic bottle and other debris wedged inside. Full 360 panoramic view.

Train to Ravenglass then walked up via Fell lane & the tarn. Nice 360 views from the summit,with the main draw being the giants of Wasdale looming to the North East. Continued back on to the bridleway & on to Eskdale Green where refreshments were taken at King George IV pub before returning on the La'al Ratty behind Lady Wakefield.

Approached from SW via mapped RoW (Fell Lane). Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in September 1949 costing 11.4s.0d. In 1952 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY11/19 in the Workington block. Flush bracket S5763 was levelled for height in 1956. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in November 1976. Stone built pillar. No photos taken.
