Parked at Meadows Edge, good tracks across the moors to the Moorland Ridge of Bolts Law. Worth detours off to the old chimneys and dike, an area rich in history. On a clear day it's said you can see five counties from the summit!

From the cattle grid to the west. The Estate have put up a sign as you go through a gate saying 'NO DOGS on this Access Land". I kept my two on short leads and we didn't stray from the Public ROW there and back. I don't think we transgressed here - certainly not on the scale we transgressed to reach Bolts Law Smalesmouth (TP1527) , that's for sure! Fantastic views, great TP.

Parked at Rookhope and bagged the three trigs on a high level walk above the village during this glorious March in 2012. Bagged this one after approach from the West from Dry Rigg trig. A mixture of heather bashing then a decent bridleway up the trig from the road. Great views and a good currick nearby. A fine trig.

Another squelchy slog. Two of these today was enough for me. Unusually on this type of remote trig, there was another walker - who obviously had better things to do because he didn't stop at the trig, only at the cairn, and despite being within 25m of me, didn't even say 'hullo'. The cairn had been decorated with tinsel at some point - maybe last Xmas?

Walked up from Rookhope doing the two caches as well. Arrived at the trig point just in time to watch a line of beaters start to drive the grouse down to the waiting guns. Barbaric sods. Trig point is complete and in good condition. Sky very black so I didn't hang about for too long.
