From small parking area to the South East , along road and over corner of a low wall into a muddy morass, eventually followed wall up to Trig which sits on a meadow top surrounded by cows that ran off on my approach, the Trig is in good condition with an open cap and one open sight hole, full 360 viewpoint includes Clougha Lancaster and the Southern Lakes

A hundred or so years ago my grandfather worked on this land -West View- then owned by his uncle. My gran was working in service in the farmhouse and there they met. I would like to think they walked up to this highest spot of the farm to see the view of Quernmore valley and the recently built Ashton Memorial. The pillar wouldn't appear for 30 years,but I like to think it's part of my family heritage. Too hazy today for good west views.

Joint visit with Carole. We parked in a gateway to the NNE at SD 50731 60833. This gave access to the field to the north of the one in which the pillar is situated and negates the need to climb any walls or fences. By initially keeping low beside the wall an entrance into the trig field is available. Then it is just up the hillside to the pillar. It is in very good condition but the plug is missing leaving the top open to the elements.

Parked on Little Fell Road in small layby. A double strand barbed wire fence runs very close to the roadside wall but if you climb over the wall by the tree, there is only one strand to negotiate.

Extremely inquistive and bold cows in field. Not deterred by arm waving and shouting. Was getting nudged by a bovine nose in the derriere while I was trying to take GPS reading at pillar. They chased me back down the field (providing entertainment for companion watching from safety of car)and harassed me as I tried to negotiate deep mud and barbed wire at dyke to escape from field.

Staying in Lancaster tonight en route from Southampton to Scotland. Decided to walk to West View from central Lancaster(so glad to get out of the car)along country lanes,and passed what I sensed used to be a psychiatric hospital(Moor Hospital)now forlornly closed. Wonderful Victorian building,some of it cathedral-like:surely this will not be demolished? Found trig in middle of sheep-filled field - they politely moved out of my way as rain threatened:lowering grey & black clouds drifting in from the moors. Very atmospheric;it was early evening time. But my luck held,and returned to Lancaster in a reasonably dry state. Later a fine pint in the Brown Cow!

NW sight open and cap missing. Bloomin freezing and icy round the base today. Aided over the dyke by a handy tree on the roadside, the barbed wire gets easier a couple of metres to the north of the tree.

West View ...very open with, errr... a good West View.

Couldnt get to it today, the previous remarks about - gap in the wall - are less relevent as its been partialy fixed. Immediately east of the trig the wall has had some attention and wooden pallates block entry. Its would be easy enough to climb the pallates and jump the wall but there is a barbed wire fence approx 1 foot from the wall which you would need to clear and on todays visit you would land in a sea of very wet and deep mud. You then have the problem of getting back over the barbed wire & the wall. Contrary to my OS map which shows 2 adjacent fields to the north before the road reaches Newlands Road the actuality is that the field immediately north of the trig field has been merged with the field the trig is in. In the NE corner, adjacent the road is a locked gate which will give easier access to the trig. Which it would have today if it hadnt been yet another sea of wet deep mud. I recommend visiting in a less rainy season (or when the grounds frozen).
