From Hargill Bridge, wide roadside verge parking (NY 8836 2149). Good track mostly, last ~800m over rouhg grouse moorland. Legs becoming grassed over but still clear enough to be immediately spotted.

Walked up with P61 on 3 Trig day out fun top with the boots,next stop Great Knipe. (A curry stool is a type of survey mark used in peaty areas where a pillar would sink and natural rock was not available. The concrete, in the form of three arms meeting at a central point, sits on the peat and it was hoped to be a stable platform. They are named after Corporal Curry of the Royal Engineers).

Fourth visit to Bink Moss, first on 4.4.83. Didn't realise it was a Curry Stool on previous visits, though had noted the bolt, so had to come back and check! Good walk from decent parking at entrance to old mine road. Then via Fish Lake, Standards, Staple Moss (a previously unvisited Nick Wright 'top'), Hagworm Hill and fence to summit. Boots still there!

from Hargill Bridge on reaching what I considered the summit I was dismayed at not been able to see the Trig had it sunk into the moss ? then I looked down I was almost standing on the Curry Stool I had forgotten it was this type, the boot is still on the post, on the descent I was tret to an high speed aerobatics display a Hobby was trying to catch a swallow a real treat to watch.

from Hargill bridge - room for one smallish car. Easy stroll up well made shooters track. passing numerous rodent traps on logs over streams - vicious things. hut is unlocked and has double glazed windows, patio and a loo!! - yes, you could overnight in it. track now extended beyond where it stops on map and now leads to around the 550m contour before veering off around the right of the hill. i didnt have time to go see where it went so headed straight up at this point. Top of Bink Moss is a sea of heather - though the gamekeepers regularly slash and burn so the going is not as bad as you might think. The wellies are still here. oh the joy! - though theyre well past their best. from the wellies you may spot a small cairn about 100m away - go look. it marks the Ordnance Survey curry stool. one of only 9 in the country. sort of a Y shaped concrete structure with a rivet in the centre. i spent a good 10 mins clearing the structure of heather grass and moss so it could be seen in all its tikka tremendousness.

Walked up via track from Hargill Bridge. Still lots of snow and reasonably frozen ground. I found the Curry Stool and the boots at the post at the summit.

I had not done my homeowrk before climbing Bink Moss so I was not expecting to see this. Glad I did though as I would have been ever so disapointed if I had missed it and seen it on TUK afterwards.

Approached from B6276 up grouse shooting track, then compass bearing from the last shooting butt. No problem finding it despite lack of GPS. Marked by change in vegetation to grass with a clump of reeds by it as well as a very small cairn and a white marker pole for a grouse grit tray. Lots of moorland birds: lapwing, curlew, golden plover, ring ouzel, oystercatcher, red grouse.

Curry Stool - arms are 4' long, slightly tapered and approx 1' wide. Conical bolt 3" dia on slightly raised central section. Slightly S from what seems to be the highest point; good view point. Approached from High Force via fence to Hagworm Hill then over to Bink Moss. Boggy in places but not too bad.
