Down to the coast after Muncaster Fell the last blue hole in the storm clouds casts out over the sea. Brought up like many a good liberal to be scared of Seascale...what a lovely place. Glorious dark coast and space to roam.

A waterproofs & wellies trig bagging day. Cheekily parked in the golf club car park. A couple of hardy golfers were teeing up. Easy walk along lane to trig. Another one near a ROC bunker. Sellafield was just visible through the gloom.

Walked up track from golf club. It was a bit bleak, with views over Sellafield, but it is easy to find. Old ROC post in next field. Ironic that one was built so close to the power station, although it was probably built first.

Last of three en route to Exiled Friends in Beckermet. Easy access from golf club car park up to trig with a great view of Sellafield (and the western fells!); coastwards a little misty today but I am told on a good day you can make out the fields on the Isle of Man. Centre and N s/hole open, otherwise vgc.

Parked in the golf club car park, walking 350m along a public bridle way to the trig. Prominent on a raised boundary, the plinth is becoming exposed, otherwise in good condition; cap is missing, no plug; 1 sight hole open. Views E to the Lakeland fells, Wasdale Screes being prominient; S to Seascale village with Black Coombe in distance; W to the sea; no views N!

Approached from south via mapped RoW. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 15th September 1949 costing 7.14s.8d. In 1952 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY11/24 in the Workington secondary block. Flush bracket S5760 was levelled for height in 1965. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in December 1976. OS archive incorrectly has S5670 which is Calf top. Spider retained original OS centre plug with deep indented lettering. No photos taken.
