Parked up at Potts Corner and followed coast path to Sunderland then beat the advancing tide across the causeway and climbed the highest and steepest ladder stile yet encountered to gain access to the Trig , which is situated in a meadow full of disinterested cows The Trig itself is in good condition with a plastic cap four open sight holes an attached poetry plaque and excellent 360 views , that of Sunderland Point steals the Show. Returned via Trumley Farm to complete a pleasant circuit

A joint visit with Carole. An easy one to reach being in an open field beside a footpath. Pillar in good condition although the original metal plug has been replaced by a plastic type one. Nice views over the Lune estuary.

Started on foot from Lancaster railway station and intended to take the estuary road that passes the Golden Ball pub, unfortunatley it was high tide and the road was impassable just before Lythe Bridge. So a detour along the A683 was needed and not to be recommended really. Its only a mile but the traffic was phenomenal. Once off the A683 the minor road to Overton was far busier then I expected. Trigs easy enough to find with good views across the estuary/salt marshes and to Clougha although quite overcast today. Fortunately, on my return, by the time the Id visited the trig the road passing the pub was now available as the tide had relented somewhat.
