Last trig of the day and it would be twilight soon. Parked next to the finger post on the B6399. I didn't fancy walking up and through the fire break at NT5374501027 straight to the trig. Walked up the track to NT5422301404, the map shows a fire break but there is not one . . . but the conifers are planted far enough apart to walk in between them. The ground under foot is good going with no clump grass to break your ankle on. Trig is hiding amongst the young conifers, another couple of years and might find it hard to get to. Walked back down the large fire break heading SE to the track, there are a couple of distinctive animal tracks to follow.
Route and parking as BigJ. Still blowing a gale, taken to driving between trigs in full waterproofs and dealing with the wet seat tomorrow!!
Route as Jonglew. Kept out of the gales for most of the route, apart from the last 200m over the wet moss and ankle breakers. Not to many landscape pictures today!
Parking and route as per Clochandighter. It was planned to walk in from Deadwater Fell but the gales today put a stop to that. Grateful of the cairn to get out of the gale for a sandwich.
Parked at NT4109256090. There is a double fence next to this which runs along to the plantation, so easy to get away from any moooo. The fire breaks in the plantation are wide and easy to follow, the game keepers use them i think as a good ATV track is visible. The last short fire break to the trig is a little bit over grown but has a solid path along it.
Route as 'caroleengel'. The plantation still has a faint path through it.
Parked in the village and walked along to the trig. Field margins are wide and grassy, field still waiting to be ploughed from last years crop. In good condition.
Parked just by the gate to the mast, bit muddy but fine. All the gates are padlocked with heavy chain. The muck pile at the top of the track has turned into a lagoon with all the rain we've had.
Found at NT4129067193!! The farmer had had enough of his workers keep catching it with machinery so it got taken out. The house owner found it, rescued it and patched up the damage, it now sits in there front garden.
Parked at NT7365371612 where there is a pile of road planings, there is enough room for a 4x4 and space to get into the field. The track runs through the farm yard and up the right. Bit hazy over the Fourth today, the wind was biting but a good walk.
Parked on the minor road opposite Kelso Hill where the verges are nice and wide, at spot height 157. Nice walk to the trig on a good tar road then onto hard packed gravel. Lots of deer in the woods at dusk. Was quite light on the way up, pitch dark on the way back!
Done along with Constable Hill. Parked on the road up to Burncastle, NT5360950799. There is a new road which cuts straight across to Burncastle Lodge instead of having to go up to the farm and then back down. Followed the good tracks along the bottom of the valley to 'Bermuda' then up onto the moor. The quad tracks in the moor are distinguished and easily followed when needed. Done Constable Hill first then back to Dabshead Hill. Good bit of snow about but not so much to be a problem.

Route and parking as RichardM. Nice bit of snow on the ground today.
Walked to it from the lay by NT632504 and the old cart track.
Parked next to the mast and through two fields. Lots of electric fences around the fields. Rumbleton Law is a large beef farm so for most of the year the fields are full of cattle. No moooo this time just sheep.
Parked at the edge of the wood where there is a large gate way NT713471. The track is solid under foot with no holes! Walked down the field edge to the NE which is just grass and through a gateway in the fence to the trig.
Revist. I lost the SD Card with the first set of pics on :o). Not much else to report since last time, nice sun set.
Nice way to end the day. Not to far from the car and not to wet under foot either!!
Route as Paulxtr. Parked in the large lay by and made my way across the wet field. Field cultivation marks had a lot of water between them.
