Bagged on way home from a Wainwright and trig day in Longsleddale. Night falling so photos murky. Parked in lay-bye near treatment works, climbed gate, and a quick trot across the field.

Called in after a day in the south lakes. Weather just changing as I reached the pillar which was easily reached from the large passing place on the minor road to the east.

Parked at water works in passing place, climbed over gate and a quick walk down the track through an open gate and up to trig. Thought I might have to climb a barbed wire fence for a moment but then I spotted the gate. Quick find for a lakes trig!

Parked at the waterworks entrance as it was closed off. Over the gate and brisk walk in the howling wind to pillar. To windy and wet to admire the views.

Drove from the north, parked in layby just before the water treatment plant. The gate had a lock on it, but when the only threat to safety is a few sheep, you've just got to do the right thing. Even though it was overcast the views were still good.

Visited this trig for a second time, chosen specifically so I could make an art plaster cast of the top as it had been logged an original OS metal centre plate from painterman61's recent Dec 2012 pics. Frustratingly I arrived there glorious early morning to find the centre plate gone and replaced with a plain metal disk. Boo Hiss. Someone's been there and nicked it recently. Made a cast anyway espec as the flush bracket number is part of the birthday series of my son Jamie's mum, though she's prob unlikely to see this birthday as its the last in her series , her 99th!! Think I'm going to carve into the plain circular centre of my cast. 'Triangulation Pillock Frustration Station'

Quick revisit in passing. So who's painting the FB numbers yellow? This one has been done in the last five months. Don't remember the barbed wire topped the gate being padlocked and chained last time either, not that it hindered me. Full report in my log of 25/05/2011.

Accessible and visible. Having chickened out on some of Wainwrights Outlying Fells because of weather conditions I had to make my journey worthwhile. Parked on A6 and walked round back lane to water treatment works. Through easily opened barbed wire topped gate and followed footprints up the field to the trig point - the following footprints is only possible after a snowfall!! Pillar is in excellent condition with indented lettering plug and all four holes open. Wonderful winter views across into Lakeland.
