Set off from the old Lancs/Yorks county boundary (by the cattle grid) and followed the fence all the way to the top. Clear and glorious sunset views over Morecambe Bay and the 3 Peaks lined up in a row to the north east. Got back to the car to find my car keys had a made a hole in my old rucksack and fallen out..Anyone finding a a big scabble 'V 'keyring ,please take to Garstang police station to save my neck.

Walked up from pass after bagging Top of Blaze Moss, not too wet considering all the rain we've had in the last few weeks! Drove around to Woodhouse Gate trig, then up to Cross of Greet bridge and did a 6.2 mile very boggy circular taking in White Hill trig and Hailshowers Fell.

Up the bridleway from the Trough, until the plantation, and then up the side of the plantation, through a gap in the wall, and straight up the fellside (which I assumed was open access). If you visit this trig, make sure it's a good, clear sunny day and you won't be disappointed. Fantastic feeling of space and peace and quiet.

Long slog up from Dunslop Bridge. Id imagine this would be a lovely spot on a good day. It was grim and wet all day. Views were alright though Trig is on the north side of the fenceline, there are some gates nearby

Followed fence up from Trough of Bowland boundary stone,rough going over typical Trough terrain(peat hags & grass). Wind howling at the trig with no views as it was shrouded in mist. Very atmospheric,it always seems wild & isolated in this area which is a winner in my book.
