Although this trig point is called Mallowdale Pike, it is in fact two miles away from the actual Mallowdale Pike. It is about 1/2 mile east(ish) of the Ward's Stone trig point, but is apparently 1 metre higher (though it looks lower). Both are on a plateau, so could qualify as the two nearest trig points with no discernable valley between them. See http://www.gps.gov.uk/viewpassiverec1.asp?recnumber=T1SD5958

(not) Mallowdale Pike The real Mallowdale Pike can just about be seen immediately above Toad's head (25/4/5 - no it can't - it is behind the hill shown!). I think Ingleborough is in the background.
GPS Plate The plate identifies Mallowdale Pike as being part of the National GPS Network.
