Lovely sunny day 24 degrees. The best approach to this trig point is to speak to the very friendly farmer lady at Wyre Side Farm. The route is then north from farm along a concrete track to within 100m then grass field to the trig point, no ditches to cross, no brambles, no bloodshed. Field dry at moment but will be boggy after rain.

Good condition pillar in middle of field. FB faces west-ish with south-ish and east-ish sightholes open. Cap present with sunken lettering. Good views as the pillar sits on a fairly open plain. Accessed from the road to the south starting at Wyreside Farm. Farmer fine with access but asked me to note here that he's happy with access but please ask him first, if possible. Easy stroll up the mapped metalled road almost to the trig.

Fore warned by those who had gone before ,I was kitted out in wellies and brier proof attire. Walked in from Skitham Lane but the footpath accessories (bridge and stiles) were next to useless. Had to jump a water filled ditch that a 3 day event horse would have been proud of. All to reach the middle of a grassy field that I couldn't think of one good reason to erect a pillar in. Did I miss something? Wet and unimpressed-- me and the day

Parked besided the entrance to Skitham House then headed south down the track, footpath. Easier than I expected wearing wellies over two damaged stiles and only a barbed wire fence to go under plus able to avoid the drainage ditch by crossing at this high point near the fence. Then onward across thick grass pasture to track and first view of trig in thick pasture..

Having just visited Knitting Row pillar, decided to start on ROW shown on map starting nearly at T-junction to West at SD423429. Promising grassy field access track, but peters out into deep weeds. Hopped over fence to North and waded through edge of wheat field. Over two adjacent wire fences Eastward and dilapidated stile South, then better going over recently mown field. A least it was dry underfoot unlike previous visitors. Crossing into next field to East was complicated by steep bank, deep ditch,nettles grasping briars. Pillar in view in field to my left. Good condition but with ground level exposing foundations. Looked easier to return by heading due North to road. Ha ha! Another very steep bank down covered in brambles etc barred progress to next field and gate to road. Back tracked to corner and managed to beat my way through to field to West, then eventually to road. Bare legs looked like I'd been attacked by an angry cat! Although a longer route, it would seem to be easier for future visitors to try the good looking track North from Ratten Row. Cycling on to Garstang the pillar is in view from the road.

Joint visit with Carole. We parked opposite the entrance to Skitham House on the track/footpath. We then followed the mapped footpath to SD 42759 43112 where there are a couple of overgrown stiles to negotiate. Here we turned east with the fence on our left into the corner of some fences at SD 43022 43114. This was the only fence that had to be got over/through. Up the bank and then headed north-east to SD 43172 43297 where there is a convenient earth crossing of a drainage ditch. From here the pillar can easily be seen and easily reached. The pillar itself is in good condition and still retains an original indented lettered plug. The underfoot conditions were atrocious - akin to paddy fields. One best left for the summer months but then the field containing the pillar could well contain a growing crop.

Parked on Skitham Lane at gateway next to Pilling signpost. Round edge of field, over barbed wire fence, up and down a ditch and through a swamp field. Decent spot, but horrible to get to.

BOG!! From North via PROW, bog, then East via more bog and a waterlogged wheat field. Tried to return a slightly different way more bog. The Pillar is at 11m the water table is at 11.5m. my assistant is refusing to attend any more boggy trips

Parked outside Valiants Equestrian Centre,just south of public footpath (West of trig).Walked down the public footpath through knee high grass,waist high thistles & brambles to reach a footbridge.Cross this and turn right(waymarked path)until Equstrian centre was directly to my right.Turn left, across field(full of friendly horses),cross barbed fence,across another field to farm track.Trig will be visible to left in middle of field by tree/bush.Trig in good nick,original plug.Views nothing special.Got a 7 for the 'Public footpath'.In hindsight,if you were to ask at the equestrian centre to walk through their yard,it would take about 10 mins!

Aproached on path from west what a trail this was one of the most overgrown public footpaths ever fridges have gone.Dry underfoot had to jump 2 barbed wire fences when 60 cows made a charge! Then over another fence barbed! then a deep ditch i walked to the left and found that the farmer had made a small concrete bridge lined up with the trig! Trig in vgc original plug in massive field in which farmers had just done haymaking. On way back the cows were waiting the whole herd followed me all the way back to the stile about 15 horses on my side of the fence wernt to keen either never been so glad to get back to the car.

Approached from west along non-recommended path. Approach garded by old fridges, barbed wire fences, brambles, ditches though frozen today and "sticky bobs"

Approach off footpath from west not recommended - deep and smelly ditch to cross. Better from NE over fence at corner of woodland then around field edge. Plug intact. Flat surroundings of no special interest.

14/29 for the day. Way off the footpath - I had to go across 3 fields, barbed wire and ditches to get to it!! It's just a regular trig but I'll post the photo as it took so much effort!

That field needs some cows!!
