Altitude 458m. In the area hunting benchmarks and it seemed churlish not to nab this trigpoint. My route circumnavigated Balderhead Res. Great day out.

Walked from reservoir car park on a good surfaced track along Gallowway Rigg to sheepfold. The weather was great, sunny but cold. Clear sky and distant views.

Couldn't have picked a better day. Blue sky, no wind and hot. Parked on lay by nr High Birk Hatt, North of Blackton Reservoir. Walked through Hannah Hauxwell country over to eastern edge of Balderhead dam. Uphill to a building and encountered some restriction signs regarding access along the non metalled track. The trig stands about 20m from a stone pillar. Didn't see another soul. Only the sights and sounds of the wildlife and the fantastic views.

Spider has OS metal cap. There is a tall cairn a few metres from pillar, also there is a flatish outcrop with a bench mark a few tens of metres SSE. Good views!

Revisit on a superb clear sunny day. Spent the morning doing an RSPB bird survey of waders at a nearby farm, then walked from the small parking area at the end of the road on the north side of Balderhead reservoir. Took the track round the top end of the reservoir then off-piste across the moor (which wasn't too boggy by North Pennine standards). The summit is a magical place, rising above a vast remote moorland. There is a stone pillar near the trig, on top of a low mound which looks like the remains of a Bronze Age kerbed barrow (it's not recorded on the Historic Environment Record, but I found a mention of it by Tim Laurie on the SWAAG database).

Out on a walk with Carole in which we visited the pillars at Currack Rigg and Brown Rigg. We came to this one from Currack Rigg by following a track west to join the Pennine Way which we then followed to the foot of Bolderhead reservoir. From where we used the decription of Greenmantle of how to get to his geocache near the pillar. This worked well and we soon had the cairn next to the pillar in view. A small climb up the rampart of the hill soon got us to the pillar. Everything in good order except that the original plug has at some time been replaced by a compound one. A wonderfull viewpoint made all the better on such a marvelously sunny November day.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters, grassy summit, distinctive profile, outcrops but less craggy than LR92 suggests.

used the footpaths from the east. Best approach is to go close to the reservoir, past the house/barn. After a deep trough, there is a two track path leading all the way to the base of the hill. This track is obvious when up at the trig. Great cairn!
