Bagged as YSM245 Thistle Green. Well what can I say about this? 2.7km as the crow flies and if you'd started this at 10 o'clock I'm sure you'd say it was a very pleasant walk! However it was 4.30ish when we started and 6.30pm when we finished. The paths take you on some big dog legs and I found the one section quite steep. Once you leave the main track you need to skirt round the lochan as the ground around it is very very boggy. Lovely spot at the trigpoint and a wee goose sat guarding the lochan

Good free parking at forest in teesdale viewing area on waymarked paths.Freezing northerly gale force winds had to put on extra insulation on as we battled against the wind.Great moorland area trig located next to a tarn great views to the surrounding fells trig in vgc no plug. Whilst sat having a brew out of the wind a peregrine falcon flew in swooping and diving around the nearby crags hunting for small prey don't think he had spotted us.

Set off from large car park next to High Force Hotel. Visited Noon Hill on the way out. Good views from trig (though it does not mark the highest point on the plateau). Quite interesting terrain.

Pleasant walk to this trig - did it norwegian orienteering style. Looked at the map in the pub and remembered the route. Pretty straight forward. Great views. However, there was some horrid weather heading my way so quick descent made.

Visited on circular walk from Hanging Shaw car park. Very windy at trig so didn't hang around too long, strangely named Thistle Green although Cronkley Fell would be a more obvious name. After descending had several blustery showers so thankful it was dry above at the trig.
