Wet, windy and murky. Stood in the hole to clear away debris and only managed to stir up a lot of muck in the ring, so the photo is worse than it would have been if I hadn't bothered.

From Kirkland via Maiden Way. Trig is exposed at bottom of a rocky hole, about 10-12" down, immediately to W of the tall cairn.

Started from Kirkland and followed path to Curricks where we then followed the Pennine Way to the Summit. Came off via Tees Head to Wild Boar Scar and the track back to Kirkland.

Been in vicinity on many occasions during the past 25 years, first time I have noticed ring. Ring is about 2m W of tall cairn & is about 300mm below local ground level ('recently' unearthed!?).

Visited this as part of a 30k circular from Milburn, taking in Hard Hill, Great Dun Fell, Little Dun Fell and Cross Fell - Weather perfect today, views amazing. Dug out the rocks and clear debris, As far as I could tell condition is good? my second concrete ring.

Found easily to the right side of the first pillar walking from Cross Fell to Dun Fell. Removed the layers of stones & snow covering it for the photo. Glorious sunny day. Beware: broken glass bottle above trig. Great snowy views.

Done on way to cross fell the ring station is on the left hand side of the top currick on the way up, it is buried under rocks which need removing and replacing carefully for a viewing. Station is ok but lettering is worn great views from this one. Easily found following teds excellent log.

Ring station with central bolt, located on the edge of the Cross Fell plateau, adjacent to the higher of two large cairns on the route of the Pennine Way. Corresponds to OS Station T001 in block NY71 369015.875 534251.438 described as a Buried Block. Grid Ref deliberately entered incorrectly to distinguish this site from the Cross Fell trig point; actual separation is about 290 metres. The block was quite deeply buried under a covering of stones, rubbish and peaty gunk. Lettering on circumference very worn. Views towards Cow Green reservoir and Dun Fell.

Stone ring buried under snow today, no time to dig out. Must have been within a couple of feet of it though!
