Revisit. Pillar in fair condition, minor cracks and chipping probably due to hedge cutting machinery. Spider retains original OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces WNW across field, compass measurement 288. Sight holes all buried. 360 open outlook with aspect to Lakeland fells.

Roundabout route - up lane initially to blockage, field to east, round 'pond/marsh', two fences to cross lane into final field. Trig virtually buried between two lines of barbed wire. Crossed to view FB. Followed hedge west down to obvious gate, another field and final fence back to road. May be easier at north end of pony paddock area from road.

The other side is worse! ©Moacky

Having walked up the short lonnin opposite Kell Head Cottage, I entered the first of THREE fields, through the gate on the left. The pillar is situated on the far side of the 3rd field - at the highest point. Approaching from this direction puts you behind the pillar. Barbwire fencing is to be negotiated if you want to view pillar from the front.

This one's been taken prisoner - it's been secured with barbed wire! Located on a raised field boundary it has a fence running both sides of it and is being used as a fence post. The pillar is also sinking into the ground. FB number is just visible. Thorn and bramble growing over it, cleared some away - left the b/w though, didn't want to annoy the natives. Good views E to Lank Rigg; N to farmland; S to Sellafield and Black Coombe; W to Irish Sea.

Foggy, in the footsteps of vegibagger party whose earlier prescence was still vsible in the tall wet grass. Built into hedge/wall/fence.

With son Jamie and also exciting as it was the first trig visited after long overdue four years with an old mobile and getting one of these new touch screen phones with internet access and managing enough of the steep learning curve to be able to access TPUK and get up this screen on my phone, log on and actually log in my visit from the field next to the trig. Gave me a rather childish whoop of excitement!! An extra number nerdy connection this FB is part of the 'trig walk of life' number set of Jamie's mum who's birthday is 5th June, though she'd be 82 and I'd be long gone, if she knew anything about this madness on 5.6.2052!!! Maybe I should leave a request in my will for Jamie to take her there just before his 53rd birthday!!

Parked by Ravelsaye House and went up what started off as a cart track and then became a tangle of trees and brambles - so nipped into field and slithered around in ankle deep mud instead

Cumberland. Plug with indented lettering. I had to remove stones then scrape soil away to reveal the flush bracket number. I replaced the stones.

12/29 for the day. Nothing special about this one - on the edge of a field. No public access that I could find - but went for it anyway!

Approached from SW, staying west of adjacent fence. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in October 1949 costing 7.11s.3d. In 1952 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NY11/T43 in the Workington secondary block. Flush bracket S5652 was levelled for height in 1965. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in December 1976. Spider retained original OS centre plug with deep indented lettering. No photos taken.
