My third of the three English Curry Stools. Arriving at the point where I thought the trig point would be I didn’t see it at first, so buried in grass, moss and heather was it. Only the bolt head alerted me to the fact I was standing right on top of it! However…I had brought a trowel along with me, and spent about an hour clearing the stool by removing all vegetation from the legs and clearing all moss from the surface. Can confirm that all 3 legs are in good condition, there is no damage to the trig point at all. Next visitor should have no problem finding it - you’re welcome! The thing about Curry Stools is this - you do a Curry Stool and its very satisfying immediately after but then, about half an hour later, you find you've a real hunger for some more...

Took the track from the Cow Green car park and then headed off uphill just before the mine buildings. Track soon petered, so just headed for the 2 sheep on the skyline that seemed to be at about the right place. Odd bits of quad bike tracks but none that headed in the right direction for long. A bit of rough going and the odd ditch to cross before arriving at the Curry stool which is slowly disappearing under the vegetation. There is currently a marker stick in place but it may not last.

from car park straight up over some peat hags much better return route south down to the track, the car park was surprisingly full apparently there was an archaeological dig about to start the eroding shoreline had exposed something neolithic.

Completed my set of all 9 Curry Stool trigs, in company of George, Doug, Martin, Rick and Jen, Sue and Trevor. In keeping with the curry theme, at the summit we shared a bottle of Cobra beer, a bag of poppadom crisps and afterwards a nice curry in the Teesdale Hotel, Middleton. Thanks to all for an enjoyable occasion.

Concrete at the end of one arm has crumbled; another arm is covered. Possibly the whole thing is on a slight tilt. Nice views - Mickle Fell beyond the reservoir, Meldon Hill and the Cross Fell range.

Surface concrete block with stud, almost exactly at Grid Ref given. Gentle 2km walk from Cow Green Reservoir car park. Found out later it was a curry stool so upgraded from 5/10 to 8/10 !
