Walked up from Fourstones. In haste to get up through the wood took a direct line up through the trees, instead of walking about another 10 yards further then following the good path as indicated by a finger post marker! This path leads to a gate in the wall - my route didn't...the cows in the field N of the TP were 'entertaining'. Reasonable views, but nothing awe inspiring.

Followed the path up from Fourstones which was very muddy around the gates near to the village but better higher up the track. Decent views.

After meeting a friend for lunch at The Boatside Inn, walked up with daughter's dog. Beautiful warm, sunny day - a precursor for the lovely summer to come. Great views and a different walk back down.

Pleasant walk up from Bridge End on a very damp but warm day. Odd glimpse of a good view. Nice spot with an ancient settlement on the other side of the wall.

A pleasant Sunday morning walk with the family. came up from the south. Had to go trough a field of cattle with a bull but he looked passive enough. We stumbled upon the trig having left the paperwork in the car. It is on the souhern side of a wall just south of the summit.
