Enjoying the weather cycling between Wennington and Lancaster. Wasn't expecting to pass any trig points today but saw this one from the road so left the bike and walked up to the pillar. Good views, the peacefulness was though slightly spoilt by some military aircraft flying low around the area.

No danger of this trig point failing the trade descriptions act .Not clear enough today for good views but interested to see the Transco Gas Works below and discovered on my map there is a cave nearby that needs exploring on another day- Dunald Mill Hole. Pillar is less than a minute off the road clearly visible when travelling west..

Thankfully, following my adventures at Hutton Heads, this was a simple visit, albeit with my badly damaged trousers offering me no protection from the soaking long grass. Enjoyed the views under darkening skies, wondering whether I should visit the pub in my vagabond state?

Highly visible from the road. Accessible from either of two gates and a simple walk up to it. As it is also highly visible from the nearby farm I called there seeking permission but no one was at home. Pillar is in very good condition but unfortunately the plug is long gone. The suprise factor was that it lived up to its name being a lovely view point.

Easy access through the gateway (no gate) by the minor road junction. Some heavy digging going on in the next field (north) - probably pipe laying as it continues away to the east. Excellent views across The Bay.

Cap missing overwise OK. Do not argue with the name - the view is amzazing, especially in a northerly airstream late in the afternoon. Dales hills and Ward Stone in particular,as they were litup in red light, but a very fine view to the Lakes across Morecambe Bay as well. Scummers had just dumped building rubble in the nearby layby and I was questioned by a local if I knew anything, sadly not, it would be a pleasure to help convict such vermin.
