From the W after parking at Swinhope Head cattle grid. A track of sorts leads across the moor, but quite tenuous. Pillar is in a sad state with spider missing and central tube open to elements. Concrete lower down is rotting away also. LHS sight hole is sealed, other 3 open. Distant hazy views through lowering cloud base.

Top badly eroded(to below spokes of spider). Near/at base, every side corner & two side faces has chunks missing - spider is open. Good views - from Hunt Cliff (Saltburn) to Cross Fell - The Sea (E Coast) is also visible - The Cheviot can also be seen.

Lots of surface erosion around the spider and large chunks chipped off around the base. A challenging walk over peat bogs from Bollihope Carrs. Plenty of snow in the furrows.

Followed a quad bike track from the parking spot at Swinhope Head, this faded but easily picked up a track next to the fence which was followed almost right up to the trig point. Only a couple of wet patches but far better than expected from some of the previous logs. There is a bigger track across the top which appears to drop down into the valley below Swinhope Head. A super viewpoint and enjoyed more than expected. Off to Black Hill next then on to Fendrith Hill.

from road out west. wild west today..blimey its windy.. a moorland trudge which feels further than it is on the map and given all the wet weather we have lately it was rather moist underfoot. the trig is a bit sick.. there a couple of chunks missing near the fb but its the exposed spider that is most grisly. its still very secure but now that the frost can get in it wont be too long now before king trig loses his crown. views pretty widespread though muted today.

Better approach this time from Swinhope Head but despite the dry weather you still needed to negotiate lots of bog and water. As everyone else has said, the spider is exposed hate to say it but not a place I will rush back to!

From Black Hill. Slow going up to the ridge then just follow the fence. Poor score due to haze. Probably good views on a clear day

Up from the cattle grid to the west. I was glad it has been such a dry summer. Some boggy bits to make the going challenging. Nearby summit had grouse food tray on it.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 10th December 1951 costing 56.17s.2d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NY86/15 within the Hexham block during 1953. Levelled for height also in 1953. Last maintained by the OS in August 1983. SITE VISIT: Approached from WNW. Parked on west side of unclassified road at Swinhope Head, NY898331. Two trig route, east to junction of fences at NY906334 then north to Black Hill and back first. Then SE from junction of fences to summit. Pillar worse for wear and somebody tried for the whole spider long ago. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces 255 WSW. Three sight holes open, innards blocked with debris, NW sight plugged. On our return, GOML waited in his 4x4 beside my parked car for a word. Something about out of date prohibitation notices for access land which had not been heeded. Having followed boundary fences at all times no 'local rules' were broken.

Poor views from the actual trig point due to plateau nature of the summit. Worth a vist to Carr Craggs almost due south of trip point. Northen end of the craggs have examples of cup marks which some think are bronze age rock art, further south are a collection of large millstones left insitu for some reason by the stonemasons. Much better views from the craggs of upper teesdale, crossfell, great and little dunn fells.

I think that this now deserves a 'damaged' rating: the spider is totally exposed. All in all, a rather disappointing view: we expected better after nearby Hardberry Hill. (It was a good job that I had my little bog troll with me; it was hard going.)

Concrete round top broken away exposing plate. Above date latest of three ascents to this broad, boggy top which will suit fans of peat and grouse. A day when the view strtched from the pillar to the fence !
