Gorgeous sunny evening with extensive over the fells and over to Scotland. Parked the top of the access road and gingerly made my way right round the compound battling the nettles.

Drove up comms mast access road. Pillar located on NE side, and outwith, the compound. Odd centre cap, seemed to be of a thin metalic material; RHS sight hole open, rear not determined. Dusk, views to West good.

Sacked off first attempt via Farm at Bothel. Too many hedges. Better option to park In lay by on A595. Take care over busy road. Easy walk up to mast and the trig point.

Drove up track to mast, turning point near gate. The turn in from the main road not too easy to see and the road is very busy, went by once and turned round for a second go. Its then quiet easy to get to the trig point which to the right of the fence above a small quarry.

An easy find, thanks to previous posts. Be warned - to 3-point turn at the entrance gate to the compound is tricky as the road is narrow. I found out the hard way!

Track it is and a nice layby on the road to park in at the foot of it. Though you could easily drive to the compund gate. A tight wall gap bwire fence and very wet nettles are the only impediments. Last for the day as Binsey seem a little too much climbing on top of that already undertaken

I've often passed Wharrels Hill on the A595 from Cockermouth to Carlisle. There are good views to the Solway Firth and Dumfries and Galloway coasts (including Criffel) from here. It's right next to the boundary fence of a local landmark television booster aerial station.
