Another of those why haven't we been here before moments - a glorious walk up from Moor Lane by cattle grid then a circuit through Roeburndale. Stunning views not least of that dark line of the pikey edge of Bowland.

Planned to park at cattle grid (SD 5855 6302), but road closed for repairs so parked 3/4 mile further back and took a direct route over rough grass moorland. Pillar retains original centre cap, indented lettering; rear and RHS sight holes open, front plug degrading. Extensive moorland views.

Parked by the cattle grid s of the pillar and walked up the unmapped track which follows the wall, initially heading n then nw. Once I'd reached the closest approach of the track to the trig I hacked across the rough moor, which was dry today. The pillar's located in a small reed bed at the top of the hill with a good view of the Forest of Bowland summit ridge. The location has a very remote feel to it.

Last trig of a two day walk starting at Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley. It has been fascinating observing all of the subtle changes in the landscape along the way. This trig view was probably the most diverse of the four I visited. Morecambe Bay, the Cumbrian Fells, valley of the Lune and of course The Three Peaks. Isle of Man too on a really good day?

Was expecting a trudge from road to south, but there's a hardcore track most of the way now. Yellowed. Is that a word? The plug has been sucuritised- is that a word?- by the allen key holes being filled with no more nails or something clever.
