Parked in the layby at St. Mary's church, and walked up to the public footpath 100m down the road. Left the ROW to hug the wall up to the mast, and a few yards uphill sits a fine pillar in great nick with lovely, far-reaching views. A great start to a round; returned the same way. No issues with access, livestock or crops - just wet trousers from the long grass.

Walked up from the Thornton - Barlick (Barnoldswick) road. A right-of-way goes across the field so not much of a detour to get to the trig though when I cut down the field to the gateway I did get a 'goml' horn blast from a passing tractor. The trig is plainly visible on the skyline as you go from Thornton to Barlick. In good condition (plastic plug) and situated near to the comms mast.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 30th April 1949 costing 18.1s.11d. In 1951 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD96/T47 in the Skipton secondary block. Flush bracket S5300 was levelled for height in 1962. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1976. Covered resr nearby but trig is free range.
