From Hubberholme up by Scar house and followed the fence North along the western side of Strans Gill, across the Peat groughs and hags in the mist to the damaged trig , the top and sides are looking worse for wear, two open sight holes and a tar filled cap, no views misty, returned on the drier and easier route South past the western side of the tarns to the track to Yockenthwaite and back along the riverbank-6 miles

Up from Yockenthwaite via farm track, then bee-line up the fell through the gate in the fence beyond the barn. Dry weather so no problem with the peat haggs in the fina stretch. Certainly an impressive vista of peat haggs to the west of the pillar.

Another of those hard to reach pillars but I managed pretty much dry from Yock hamlet today. the top section has well and truly had it. all pieces that look loose are loose. Frost? The building marked on 1:50k but not the 1:25k isnt really worthy of a visit. youd certainly not have room for your butties in it.

Parked in Hubberholme and followed the Dales Way towards Deepdale then up the eastern side of Deepdale to find the fenceline near Tougue Tarn. Followed fence round to trig point which is in very poor condition a bit like me at this point. The walk off following the fenceline to Gilbert Lane took forever after the overnight rain which made it a bit difficult walking. But the views of all the major hills made it well worthwhile.

Great 15 mile walk from Buckden, along lovely river path to Yockenthwaite up and down Yockenthwaite Moor, not too boggy at all, hard to believe its apparently the boggiest mountain in Yorkshire! up A Pennine Journey to Horse Head trig and along ridge to Horse Head Moor summit, across nearly impassable bogs to Birks Fell and along ridge to Firth Fell trig back down to Buckden. Clear and sunny. Much better views than I was expecting.

Above date most recent of four visits, first being on 18/02/1980. Described as "the most decrepit of trig points" in 1969 (Nick Wright - English Mountain Summits) Walked up from Buckden along Rake then up to Grey Horse before following fence & wall to pillar. It was a lot drier than on previous visits - a lot of grough damming has been carried out. Also new track and grouse butts on N side.

After Buckden Pike, crossed Aysgarth road and walked up the track toward Bainbridge. Turned off to follow fence Westward across peat hags to pillar. Much restoration work being carried with plank weirs in hollows to slow run off. Lots of sticks with red or green tops without a clear function. Descended to Langstrothdale following Deepdale Gill. Followed high level path from Yockenthwaite to Cray, and just made the last bus at Buckden to get back to Kettlewell. This must be one of the most remote challenging pillars I have done!

HISTORY: Pillar completed 3rd August 1949 costing 95.12s.3d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SD96/22 within the Skipton block during 1951. Levelled for height also in 1951. Last maintained by the OS in June 1976. SITE VISIT: Approached from south. Parking off SW side of road at SD902790, ~200m west of Yockenthwaite. Up via bridge and steep farm track to SD911794. Continuing on a beeline northwards to the top, the gradient lessens and the route is straight forward apart from some peat haggs to negotiate near the top. Pillar disintegrating, with top broken into several loose parts. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces northeast, ~43. Vented through NE & SE sight holes. Full 360 panoramic view.

Took direct route up from Yockenthwaite alongside Pasture Gill steep lung bursting first half mile but firm going as far as stone hut then just 300 meters of bog hopping to Trig, Dales three peaks visible, the column is disintegrating, strong wind so beat a hasty retreat to stone hut for tea before descent via up route, under three miles there and back about 1300ft of ascent.

Ascended from Hubberholme via Scar House and then to the wall which ends in the middle of nowhere on the summit plateau. From the wall to the pillar the bog crossing was very dry and presented no issues, didn't even get muddy boots! Excellent panoramic view, taking in all the major Yorkshire Dales peaks.

Parked at cattle grid to east of Yockenthwaite. Up track that takes you onto the moor. I then followed the wall til it ended. It was then a case of finding a way across the squelchy peat bogs to the top. Bleak place today in the fog.

My last Wharfedale Trig pillar this one. Followed Painterman's route up from Hubberholme - two hours out and back, though I found that if you take a slightly more westerly route back down off the plateau before heading over east to the wall/fence going down eventually to Scar House you do miss out the worst of the peat hags and bogs. The Trig itself is slowly deteriorating with alarge chunk lying on the floor (poor Trig). Good views towards the Three Peaks and back down Wharfedale on a slightly misty but still late Autumn day. I can't imagine that anyone else would pass by here unless visiting the trig or on professional moorland business.

Walked to this one from the church at Hubberholme, first up a good track to Scar House then left to the wall that runs all the way up by the side of Strains Gill, at the end of the wall I beared NW and was lucky to find another walkers footprints who had broke trail in the snow covered groughs, all the ground was frozen so no bogs again! Great views from here no wind either, but the trig is very badly damaged around the top all the crown is breaking up,has a tar plug and fading white paint job. Followed tracks back down the walkers had picked a much better route than me and was soon back down much quicker than planned, again never saw a soul all day perfect.

Returned to car via Cray in pitch black Damaged as reported but extensive 360 degree views and remoteness make up for rather dreary situation

Walked in from Hubberholme along circuitous route via Buckden and then up from Scar House beside the wall. Cuckoo spit was rampant and Cotton grass in full splendour. Windy on top, but peat lovely and springy after long dry spell. Definitely one for the summer months - will be awful in the wet. Pillar badly damaged with chipped off bits lying around its base. Needs some love and attention.

A good day for a visit as visibility was excellent and a 360 degree panorama was available. Conditions underfoot were not too bad either. I came in from Fleet Moss and exited to Stake Moss and the 'slutch' only went up to the top of my boot on two occasions in the whole crossing. On a bad day it can reach up to crotch height believe me! The damage to the pillar is getting worse with a few flakes of the cemented patch lying around on the ground.

i would say this trig is now fully damaged, probably by someone who doesn't like knee deep peat!! I'm kind of getting to like it though in a perverse ironic kind of way. Not quite a roadsider! came from the east at the pass of the buckden road. along the dirt bike scum byway, then head off into the great unknown...peace squelch quiet squelch...reet fantastic. Imake it 3K each way of pure unadulterated bog trot. on the map its about 80 metres height gain, but up and down all the peat houghs must make it many times that. There must be an equation. Height(tot.)= Height(map) x Dist(metres)./100* perhaps... discuss. the thing is, coming back down doesn't feel like a descent at all because of all the clambering up out of peat pits. nice plovers calling across the moors. . . . .and yes that is snow on the ground in mid may!

Better known to 'Fellsman Hike' entrants and staff as Middle Tongue, before the advent of GPS it was a b****r to find in the dark and mist of a May night. I visited during a spell of frosty weather which meant that the 'sea of slutch' all around it was solid, thus not even my boots got dirty! An attempt has been made to repair the worst of the damage with a cement patch.
