An absolute cracker for so little effort from the top of the road. There are at least three ladder stiles from Yorkshire into Lancashire. Best to start on north side of the wall initially.

Most of the paths on the Dozen follow walls or fences and on days like this the views are extensive. It is reassuring to stop and on given sections see the Three Peaks of Yorkshire, Pendle Hill, Morecambe Bay and the Lakes. I know this pillar by the name Knottend (6/12) and half a dozen complete. I cycled LEJOG and stopped at The Cross of Greet to see my route unfold towards the Howgills. All pillars gifted to the memories of places visited.

One of the best things about tracking down trig pillars is that you end up in places you've never got round to visiting before. Today it was Bowland Knotts; a fantastic area of weathered rocks on top of an otherwise fairly featureless moor. Great 3 Peaks viewing platform and as it turned out a very windy spot.

Got the bus out to Cross of Greet and planned to walk along to Bowland Knots and return, took around 2 hours in total. The track marked on open street maps and ordinance survey was very hard to follow and largely invisible, but navigational was fine by following fences. Mostly walking over long grass which didn't significantly effect progress. Good views from the trig point.

Came over from Burn Moor trig simply following the fence and wall. No track or footpath from Burn Moor trig until reaching Ravens Castle but the odd sheep trail on either side of the fence (which is easy to stradle) helps but be prepared for bog and add about a 3rd in distance to circumnavigate such. From Ravens Castle a 4x4/quad bike track leads to within spitting distance of the trig. Very hazy today but the 3 peaks were visible. Nice setting at the end of the crag. No cars - on foot!
