Second trig on my Settle circular, headed over from Lancliffe pillar through superb limestone scenery. Nice chat with M'boro couple walking to Malham. Ascended from metal gate at Grid Ref given below (thankyou!). Rough moorland but not bad walking, bit tricky when wet I guess. Superb views in all directions again (can just see the sea to the West , forgot to mention Pendle Hill to South earlier! Pillar in good nick with original cap too. On to Hunters Bark after my butties. New boots first run out going well so far.

After bagging Newton Moor, I headed north via High Greet and the eccentric observation mast array to reach the final little hill top, Rye Loaf Hill. There is a stone stile in the wall directly south of the pillar - up and over and then steeply but quickly up hill and the pillar sits by a broken cairn, but with absolutely magnificent 360-degree views. The trig is in fine condition with a full set of metalwork and is a wonderful place to stop and admire the view and have a cuppa. Stunning. I headed back to Kirkby Malham via Peart Lane, which involved a bit of gill-hopping and fence-climbing - there was a proper dearth of stiles here. A dead badger, miles from any significant woodland, capped off a truly surprising day.

Poor young Brock. The only patch of woodland anywhere near didn't look sufficient for a badger sett, it was an odd place to find a dead one.

Another day in paradise and continuing the journey back to Kendal from Skipton, today was Malham to Clapham. Superb winter conditions and life is just so good. Rye Loaf was a slight deviation off the route and on open access. Gifted to Lisa Marie Presley RIP. So so sad to hear of her passing.

First of two pillars visited during a thirteen mile hike out of Malham. Followed the path just to the left of the stone walls that runs to the base of the small hill with the pillar at its peak. Prote Ted by a shelter on one side it is in generally good condition and retains the original centre for the spider. No views to speak of due to the fog.

Walk up from Malham. Up and over the cove, down Ing Scar then followed the Dale's way and cut through the field to the trig. To the north and west was dark grey skies and rain, to the east and south was sunshine. Managed to dodge the rain whilst walking. Came down in buckets just as I got back to the car.

Walked up from Malham via Long Lane to Napp Cross (Original place at SD874639), then continued path heading to Settle. At SD868638 turn left as you go through the gate. You will see another gate by the wall. Climb over this and follow the wall (via a faint path) around until there is a short climb to the summit. Pilliar in good condition, even has original plug. Easy walk but this is summer. Views of 3 peaks, Pendle, Forest of Bowland and more.

Walked up from the south, from Peart lane, via the track leading past the small wood. There is a large (14m diameter) low summit cairn, part of which has been remodelled into a shelter. The cairn is probably prehistoric (Bronze Age). There is a hollow in the centre of the cairn: it's not clear if this was the source of the stones for the shelter, or if the centre of the cairn has been dug out in the search for artefacts, or if it's an original feature.

Walk across from Langcliffe enlivened by hearing a group of walkers discussing if a distant rock was actually a cow, then tainted by a group of teenagers blasting out music as they walked. Good to see so many such groups ( DofE?) enjoying the peace and quiet ! (see also Parson's Pulpit pillar log)

Continues eastwards along the bridleway to SD861638 turning southeast accross the access land and Stockdale Beck for final climb up the north slope of Rye Loaf Hill. Open grazing top with cairn. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces NNW ~331. Vented through NW and SW sight holes. Full 360 panoramic view.

So the Yorkshire Dales might be the next focus, once I've got the last couple of pesky Peak District pillars out of the way. Up from Malham via Pikedaw and "Barn Valley". It's been a while since I've been here, so distant peaks, (and they are quite distant), look familiar yet their names escape me. Soon maybe. Back via (the top of) the Cove to make an interesting loop. Malham better than even I remember - but this was a quiet, if sunny, April Wednesday

2nd trig of a two night camp at Gordale. Circular 10 miler via Mastiles Lane, Malham Tarn, Langscar Gate, Nappa Cross, trig and back to Malham. Accessed via a gate in a wall corner NNE of the pillar. The gate was not locked. A wall can be followed which we did for a short while before bearing straight up for the trig. It looked boggy but wasn't. Shame for the driving rain, wind and lack of views as I am sure the view would have been awesome. OS plug intact, pillar in good condition. And so ends another camping season.

Climbed after Grizedales before going onto Kirkby Fell before using BW to return to car park on road to ENE. Clear warm occasionally sunny but breezy on tops.

Snow melt and rain meant an awful muddy slog in from Newton Moor trig, especially the fields over High Langber. Visible for miles due to shape of hill which provides its name and easily reached with new stiles. Grand views across to Attermire Scar. Second one for the day, now across to Hunter Bark (already bagged Langcliffe) and back to Long Preston.

Visible and accessible. I came up from Ebor Gate whilst on a walk from Long Preston. Then followed the grass track towards the mast before veering north-east along the wall side - snow permitting - to use the two stiles indicated by SUE-C; many thanks. T'was an eeire and silent place today shrouded in mist with quite extensive patches of snow. Everything in good order with original type plug. No views today but on a good day I know them to be superb. The bonus for me was the adjacent cache!

Final Trig on the family outing today... i was shattered by the time i got to the top but boy was it worth it... the views from this Trig Point were amazing, you could see all the 3 peaks and a hell of a lot of the Yorkshire Dales!! Well worth the struggle to get there!!

Far reaching views, no other walkers about, nippy breeze and a goodly walk from Kirby Malham to get there.

From Langcliffe, round the east and south of the pillar and then back up north - easiest. Collecting benchmarks as well. Nice daay, but misty

Forget about Wainwrights route from Scalebar Force, there are new stiles on the moor that give easy access to the trig from the aerial. On the map picture, A is the unfenced & unwalled moor access point. The grassy track leads to the aerial. B & C are the new stiles and D is the location of the gate as mentioned by MAC.HAWK & ted.

Last trig of 4 on a 20-miler, Gargrave to Settle, and wow was it worth it! Lovely, lovely view in all directions (windy as hell mind). The Three Peaks, distant lakeland fells, Attamire Scar & Warrendale Knotts, Pendle Hill, Sharp Haw, Rylstone Moor. If the weather had been better I'd give it a 10. As ted says access is easy via the gate on the bridleway approx 1 mile west of Stockdale farm. No cars, on foot.

Walked to this summit over the Christmas holls' visibility down to a few yards today so no view from top, still a great walk though,visited the summit cache whilst there.

Views of Penyghent, Fountains Fell, Barden Fell and south of Malham. Access via gate at SD868638 is easier than Wainwright's suggested route.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 10th August 1949 costing 36.12s.0d. In 1951 this marker was computed as secondary station SD96/14 in the Skipton block. Flush bracket S5231 was levelled for height also in 1951. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1976.

Pillar losing its white finish beside large pile of rocks. Visited on way to Attermire Scar, having initially climbed Kirkby Fell due to navigational error.
