Easy to get to, parked literally where the road ended and the path started in Skipton and walked up the Dales Highway towards the moor, branching off through a small gate to climb the hill. The day was overcast but still really enjoyable. The views must be amazing on a clear day. There are 3 memorial cairns up there too, so plenty to see. Trig in good condition.

Left bike at end of cul-de-sac road from Skipton and made the climb on foot. Intrigued by the three neighbouring carefully constructed dry stone pillars. Barely got back to bike before the first large drops of rain came which turned into about an hour of rain. Watched end of the day's stage of the Criterium Internationale on Eurosport in a bike shop and then a leisurely coffee to sit it out!

Walked up from boat moored in Skipton ready for Tour de France. Curlews and fine views. When the moors around Skipton were enclosed, 1774, the Vicar was granted this area in lieu of tithes of herbage, hay etc which he would have formerly received from people working the common land.

Steep but enjoyable walk up from the outskirts of Skipton. Was expecting a difficult final ascent as there is no path marked on the OS maps to the trig point, but in actual fact it is pretty well-trodden. Extremely cloudy day, so the view was limited. Interesting twin cairns 50 metres from the trig point. A really enjoyable, unheralded trigpoint walk - I'm surprised this one isn't more well-known!

Easily accessible and visible. I came up on the path from Jenny Gill expecting a bit of heather bashing once I needed to leave the right of way to head east. However there was a lovely well walked path which took me directly up to the crags and pillar on Skipton Moor. A wonderful location with outstanding views over the surrounding countryside. Today all the various land marks including the town of Skipton could be seen. Pillar in good condition with concrete plug. Only one hole open.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 28th May 1949 costing 15.19s.10d. In 1951 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station SD96/18 in the Skipton block. Flush bracket S5561 was levelled for height also in 1951. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in July 1986.
