Ten mile circular walk from Tower Lodge. Good views on this lovely day. Despite being Bank Hol weekend we saw no one all the walk. Good walk and feels remote. Fantastic views

From Tarnbrook on shooter's track and then fence line to trig. Very dry at the moment. Lots of alarm calls plus flying overhead from nesting Curlews. Not one grouse seen.

Nice remote feel to this place. Extended my walk up to Ward's Stone to pick off this one. Didn't get to see the wolf, his hole or the crag though. Pillar retains original top cap, lightly indented lettering. Minimal views due to low cloud.

Day 4 of 10 A Bowland and Furness Walk. I'm really proud of my next 3 logs, this being the first. This walk was devised in the full knowledge that it was not possible to cross the Bowland massif from Slaidburn to Caton without the necessity of a wild camp. The next morning, still alive, a big decision was made to go for it and leave the Hornby Road for the massif at SD652587. Fences and walls can be followed to this summit, but boggy it certainly is, with hundreds of gulls circling overhead, this is one of England's last wilderness areas. I'm logging as slightly damaged as there is some erosion to the base of this pillar now I imagine due to weathering. Onto Ward's then....

Walked across (boggy in parts) from Ward's Stone on a lovely day with clear views then back down to Tarnbrook via the shooters track. I think there's a greater sense of isolation here than anywhere in the Dales. Trig in good condition.

Parked at Tower Lodge and walked across the relatively dry moor. Fantastically clear air meant superb views. The Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Snowdonia were all visible. Walked back via the shooter's road and Wyre Way.

Absolutely great up here on a ridiculously hot day for sept. end. beautiful grit boulders ruined by the old war dept I think, cursive bench mark type things all over, one was on a random rock in the middle of the moor. The way from Tower Lodge is a very straightforward affair following quad tracks through tussocks. Brilliantly remote.

S side of wall (crossing point further E). Plug intact; 2 sighting holes open. Several small holes in the pillar surface. Not sure if the pillar has been relocated onto a small cairn or if stones have been placed around the eroded base. Very extensive views. Noisy summit with large numbers of gulls circling. The nearby track over Salter Fell has had problems with off-roaders in the past - noted that a section had been sawn out of a gate at SD652588 - maybe to remove padlock? Benchmark with rivet on trackside at Guide Hill and another at Salter Clough.
