I liked this one, particularly following a gruelling six hours on the M6. A lovely location, and I filled my lungs with blessed fresh air as I strolled through a lush green pasture on the reservoir side of the trig. A quick jump across a wall and fence to reach the pillar, the top of which was covered in a deep green velvety lichen. Original cap in place with deep lettering, and one sight-hole open. Soon we were tucking in at the Brackenrigg Inn, Watermillock overlooking Ullswater, and everything seemed alright with the world (at least for an hour).

Help!!!! I lost my Nikon Camera around the trig point (the last photo that I took was of the trig). I have replaced the camera so if you find it ..... it's yours! But PLEASE contact 07732 332824 so you can return the SD card which has irreplaceable photos of other summits. I will, of course, pay your postae.

An easy walk up the side of a wall.Extra points for the well managed surrounding farmland, the avenue of sycamore and elm leading up to the pillar and for the view westwards with Kidsty Pike(on my favourite walk ,C2C); in the same frame as Blencathra ,(favourite mountain) A good 360

As I drove up the lane I could see the farmer sat in his Landrover next to the gate where the ascent begins. Asked for and got permission to visit. He knew of the existence of the pillar and roughly what it was for and asked a few questions about how it had been used in the past. As is usual, he was incredulous that anyone would spend their time visiting trig pillars.

Parked just off the north side of the minor road in a tight pull-in by the wall at NY 5809 1796. I hopped over the gate into the field opposite and then followed the edge of the field to the SSE. A little exposed but not awful. Under the trees is the pillar on a small plinth. Original cap with deep indented letters; FB faces NNW; SSE sighthole open, others plugged. Views of hilltops to the N, E and SE.

sits in the middle of a tumulus--the OS did enjoy building trigs in ancient monuments!--a wild wind made the hill's name only too appropriate.
