Excellent view of a blue tinged Pendle with the grey advancing from the coast for one final dank end to the day. Quick walk back to the road in approaching dusk. Strange wild little spot a world away from the beautiful drive from White Hill, visited earlier.

Another trig logged in good company today, with CJO, pereginus, PeteBoggs, Martin R, Rick Salter and Eric Povall all coming up for this one. We also came to the decision that the TuMP summit was located just over the other side of the wall or some point beneath it.

Walked up from layby near entrance to quarry, around the quarry perimeter fence on a reasonable path, boggy in places, but not too bad considering the rain we've had this past few months. I like the FB lettering picked out in gold paint, seen that on a couple of others locally, nice one whoever did it :)

Parked at the Newton Fell viewpoint/cattle grid,large parking area. Crossed road & went up to the fence surrounding the quarry then simply followed it all way round the quarry to the trig. Good views of the fells to the west & Easington Fell to the NE. Returned as out & then climbed up to Easington Fell which is the Marilyn top.
