Over in this neck of the woods for an urban orienteering event in Ingleton and later a talk on Beavers by CWT. Chucked it down nearly all day so decided to stay low and do a circular walk from Devils Bridge. A short jaunt and a very accessible pillar from the PRoW running E to W. Rescued an overturned sheep on the way and got it back on its 4 legs. Remember Brasso, well buying a tin was like searching for the Holy Grail. Tracked one down in an hardware shop and cheered to see its been going 100 years and It has undergone very few changes in either composition or packaging. This pillar is gifted to good old Brasso.

We parked up on Saddler Nook Lane, and took the easy ROW to the trig field past Sellet Hall. The field was empty of stock and crop, so we nipped up Sellet Bank hill to the first fence line (not on the OS 1:25k) and on to the pillar. The hill appears to belong to Sellet Mill farm to the north east, and you are visible when at the pillar, but it is a long way off and our discrete visit went unchallenged. Pillar in good condition except for a small top edge chip and some minimal weathering, but had been liberally sprayed with manure (along with the field) so was a uniform brown colour...! Lovely views of Ingleborough and beyond from this vantage point. We returned the same way.

I followed the way marked path before turning right to ascend the small hill. The views are fantastic in all directions and the clear blue sky really helped. The pillar is generally in good condition with just a small chip on the edge next to the spider which retains its original centre. There is a small amount of ground erosion but rocks have Bern placed there, presumably in an effort to prevent further erosion.

I'm staking a claim for the last logged visit to a trig in 2016. This one was on a nice dry hill, a quick detour off the footpath,on a muddy ramble from Devils Bridge. The light was fading but it looked a good spot to view the Lune Valley.

Seems to be a popular spot in September. Chip off edge, end of spider leg. Odd RoW - seems a bit begrudgingly routed. Bull warnings, and a fire burning in the field 10 foot from first stile. A well deserved stroll off the footpath.

Originally parked near Sellett Mill where there is a good lay-by but decided against this approach owing to farm animals in field etc. Parked near junction of Saddlers Nook Lane/Biggins Lane and took footpath before diverting up hill to pillar. Surprisingly outstanding panoramic views for such a modest climb to 117m (my GPS showed 120m at the trig top). Our first trig in Lancashire !

My 8th trig, and another great walk in the countryside.

Walked up from Sellet Mill, round back of farm buildings. TP in good condition although the ground around it is being eroded away, probably by the sheep. Good views towards the dales and three peaks area.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in May 1949 costing 8.16s.3d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD47/T47 in the Barrow-in-Furness secondary block. Flush bracket S5399 was last levelled for height in 1970. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1976. Up from Sellet Mill (east), off high point of PRoW up to trig (Sellet Bank), return to PRoW and down through Sellet Hall (west).
