Parked at Deepdale Bridge in spaces by the red phone kiosk, good paths to Boredale Hause and upwards to summit. Pillar in good nick, spider stamped JLC SEC and has no cap/plug, one sight hole open. Saw a herd of deer just NE of trig to cap things off. Excellent views all round on a fine day.

Last minute revisit with Phil back from his travels as a newly qualified ML.Stormy day on top decided to say fairly low today as many lakes giants were under cloud all day.Very windy at the trig lucky with views as the clag just cleared on our arrival did a circuit of the fell from the free parking at Bridgend,taking in the birkett tops a round of about 16 km.

Above date is most recent of five visits, the first being on 13/04/1981. A magical mountain. This time walked up from Cow Bridge. Saw a red squirrel running along a wall on way up to Boredale Hause. Walked round most of Place Fell on about 450m contour. Saw a herd of c.15 deer on crag above Boredale Head. Deserted contour walking and popped up around Hare Shaw and walked up to pillar.

Old Man thought we were mad leaving Patterdale in cloud and hailstones, but optimism paid off as it all cleared just as we reached trig to reveal superb all-round views. Very cold so legged it pretty quickly to Sleet Fell and off end of ridge to Sandwick, then back along lakeshore in sunshine and wonderful autumn colours. Stone built; spider stamped JLC SEC (as Muncaster Fell but VC was clearly absent on this occasion!); no cap or plug and centre tube filled with concrete; NE s/hole open; otherwise vgc.

There seems to be a policy of commercial greed on the part of the local hotels and businesses in Patterdale regarding parking. Having apparently purchased adjacent spare land, day visitors are charged 4 or 4.50 to park, and face a charge of 75 to unclamp their vehicle if they do not comply. For folk refusing to succumb to such unwelcoming protection rackets, there is free parking in and around Patterdale for those prepared to seek it out. Followed RoW out of village via NY395161 to Side Farm. Routes up Place Fell are clearly mapped, approached summit from south. Stonebuilt secondary station pillar in good condition. Completed in April 1950 costing 33.17s.9d. Spider centre open but hole filled with concrete. Flush bracket faces 338 (NNW). Vented through NE sight hole. 360 panorama lost to low cloud and drizzle on day of visit. Met the Littlewoods on the way up here, by chance. Anybody who is anybody in trigging / hillwalking / climbing circles knows Sue & Trevor.

Another great Lakes trig. Stayed at Patterdale YHA the night before and walked up from there. The crowds dissapated after I left the coast to coast path. Met a couple with their 18 month collie Bryn on top. Walked on to take in 4 Birketts but bottled out of the last one as the heat was overpowering and there was no breeze. Dropped down to the Ullswater path and cooled off by dipping my feet in the lake.

Not the best of the Wainwrights, but pretty good nonetheless. Located on a point giving super views of Ullswater, the Patterdale valley and west towards the Helvellyn range. We ascended from Patterdale via Boredale Hause, crossed Boredale Beck at Garth Heads and returned to the Hause via Beda Fell, 9 miles of high winds and severe rain - nice! Trig is solidly built from local stone and looked in good condition considering the weather it must get.

Ascended from Patterdale and returned along the superb Ullswater path from Sandwick. Good views today despite some pesky cloud. Trig on a wonderful little crag with a little scramble to the top. Great place. Beware the lakeside path back to Patterdale from Sandwick, it contains the biggest thorn bushes I have ever seen, to my hands cost!

Climbed up from Patterdale on a lovely hot summers day. Bit of a slog up from boredale Hause to Round How as they were relaying the paths, and had left big sacks full of boulders in the way. It was a tricky scramble over the rocky summit up to trig for me as I only have short legs, but still made it with a helping shove up the bottom from my dad!

very retrospective log - day uncertain but month and year correct. Condition of trig not noted. Day walk round Martindale. Direct descent from Bleaberry Knout to lake side - challenging to say the least! Revisited 19/1/19 at 11:41am Altitude 658m Snow underfoot and the icicles formed horizontally! great day out

A fine walk up from Sandwick then along to Angle Tarn and down to Hartsop for a wander along Ullswater. Sadly no views at the trig as visibility down to about 30 yards. Trig stands on a razor back ridge, which was a bit slippery today - fine location for a fine trig.

vgc, slender stonebuilt pillar. No cap: centre hole has been filled or closed with mortar, leaving screw thread clear. Fine rocky summit, great hill, lovely views, sunset was a bit of a washout - red glow. Up via Birk Fell (a possible new 500m summit I reckon). Easy rapid descent in time for the LDWA Hillwalkers Register annual dinner.

Place Fell holds a special affection for us as it's the first mountain climbed and trig point reached by us all as a family 25 years ago,todays visit was for the purpose of visiting the SOTA cache near the summit,a wonderful late summer walk.

Retrospective Logging of this trig from when I reached this summit whilst doing the Wainwrights. This was to have been my 214th and final wainwright on my 40th birthday. However foot and mouth had closed the Western fells (re-opened 1st Aug 2001), so I celebrated being 40 on Place Fell with champagne, then the following dayy completed the final 6 wainwrights!
