From Deadman Gill Bridge, good parking. Ground has the potential to very boggy, all rendered firm today after recent low temps. Exposed in short grass, it would benefit from some spade work to clear away encroaching grass. 3" dia slightly conical bolt at centre of the 3 concrete arms.

Came across this by accident on the website. What a wonderful huge thing it is. Another stormy day heightening the North Pennine immensity. Wonderful spot, on into Co. Durham after for a more conventional trig.

Alongside fence from county boundary parking space to toppled Boundary Stone No 36, then across summit to Curry Stool. Returned directly over Shot moss. Weather; sunny, windy, good visibility.

Given an 8/10 owing to the rarity of these. Fifth of six different species of trigs today, introducing non-trig friend to the world of trig-spotting. So he got to see an active station, a rivet, an FBM, a (very special) pillar; a curry stool and a concrete ring.

Up from Deadmans Bridge. Views extensive if somewhat lacking in excitement. Cumbria's only Curry Stool.

Bagging the curry stool and the summit from the B road near Deadman Gill Bridge. Walked in my wellies which kept my socks dry.

Approached from Deadman Gill Bridge. Pleasantly surprised it was not too wet underfoot. Straightforward find with GPS, otherwise there is a marker 20m N.

Approached from SW via soggy track. Cloud arrived at top just before I did and cleared soon after I left. Good views from lower down. The Curry Stool was clear of vegetation; bolt on central raised area. The Andy Goldsworthy sculptures in the sheepfold next to Deadman Gill bridge were more interesting.

Parked County boundary and headed up by trying to keep to higher ground to avoid surface water bogs. Brisk cold wind and good visibility. Now I know what it looks like.

Came up from NW, from near Deadman's Gill, which is worth visiting too. GPS took me straight there, thankfully.

Typical moorland views. Would not have found this without the GPS. Walked up alongside boundary fence before heading SW for the high ground.

Curry Stool - the first Ive seen: concrete <spider> with arms c.1m long and centre stud. At SW summit, the concrete clear of grass. Fine view. My old LR91 has a spot height here (562m) although current mapping credits the NE summit (563m). First (re)found by Trevor & Sue Littlewood in 2006, using 10-fig GR provided by Richard Short at the OS, via Jon Rouse.
