Continued a long round from Eller Beck Bridge and the pair of trigs on Louven Howe by picking up the track through Fen Bog, over the railway line and up across the moor on the Lyke Wake route. Reached the cairn and standing stones first before the trig. The pillar stands in a lovely spot with fabulous views; it is in good nick overall but has lost some of the pillar top to weathering.

September Camp 2015 Goathland. First of two trigs on a roughly 16 mile hike from Goathland. Pillar wasn't obvious on approach but then spotted E of large cairn near standing stones. Trig Baggers have forged a small but boggy path to pillar. Missing cap but good condition. Lovely 360 degree views of NY Moors. On into the great forest....

I pulled off of the A169 onto a gravel road just south of the bridge over the Eller Beck. I parked and followed the gently rising track west to the pillar. A pleasant and undemanding walk of just over a mile and a half. The pillar is in generally good condition but the centre plug has been removed. There are three smallish (compared to some) standing stones nearby and a large cairn marks the crossing of two paths.

The best of the weekend by a long shot. Walked in from the North on the bridle way that crosses Moss Dike. Wet at the beginning but after that a good track and well marked by cairns. Trig has not only barrows but its own standing stones in alignment. Views across to Fylingdales and the occassional train heard on the North York Moors railway.

Walked up from main road in late evening. Whilst putting boots on an MOD policeman pulled up to check what I was up to. Nice man, told him I was planning to go up to Lilla Howe tomorrow so he made a note so I wouldn't be hassled. Had a good chat about the Lyke Wake Walk which I did in 85. Once at trig and Howe I was convinced that I never visited the trig in the eighties. No way would I have gone off route “just to bag a trig.” Great dusk views across moors and towards Fylingdales. Must say I miss the infamous golfballs.

Walked up the Lyke Wake Walk path from Ellor Beck car park – lots of water about path eroded into a gully with flowing water – rain and sleet – must get some better boots but you would need wellingtons to keep you feet dry in these conditions – tried to get photo with Flylingdales in the background.
