I walked up from Grisedale Crossing to the south east (SD 79212 93495) after alighting the 08.26 Skipton to Carlisle train at Garsdale. A brilliant ramble up in good weather over South Lunds Pasture/Turner Hill, then followed the fence line on good paths/ATV tracks all the way to summit, a bit squelchy underfoot in parts. I called in at The Moorcock Inn for a couple of pints before my train back to Skipton.

Altitude 652m. On a BM hunt and it seemed churlish not to wander here to nab the ring.

At last after many visits to the area go in search of the ring. Lovely mossy example on a windy day, beautiful bright sun to end - route from Uldale.

Walked up from Cotegill Bridge with Roger T. My second one of these, and no digging involved this time. Cleared away some encroaching turf etc to reveal it a little more. Measured 4.2m from edge of cairn to centre of bolt in NW direction. Bolt is slightly conical, 3" in diameter. On to Wild Boar Fell.

3rd Ringo gringo of the day. From Shaw paddock via Pasture Rigg which looked worse than it turned out. Once the 500m contour was hit going was pretty reasonable if not a tad wet and only 50 minutes from road to ring. Swarth Pike is a lovely spot. The views in these parts to the Howgills are superb. Ring in good nick again so far as is apparent. Though as with that on Sails this too is somewhat overgrown. Off to WBF now..

Re-visit. Passed in April 2003 before all things trig-ish hit me. Came up from Garsdale (off the train). Path to East House, open moor west of Round Ing Gill and on to Swarth Fell & the cairns on the west of WBF from which is a superlative view of the Howgills. Open moor to WBF trig then The Nab and descent via High/Low Dolphinstry, Little Fell, Greenlaw Rigg, bridleway to Moor End and road the Kirkby Stephen station. Fabulous walk, Id forgotten how good it was!

easily found near the summit cairn, close to the fence. didnt bother to bail it out. grand views. GPS (a rather knackered 2nd hand one) gave location as 76145 95746. approached from Wild Boar Fell. Descended to Cotegill Bridge: steep in places otherwise straightforward

Well spotted Ted, a pleasant afternoon walk up from Grisedale (parked top of road near East House)a bit squelchy today but bright sunshine made for good views.

That will teach me to read the TUK site before leaving home for any new entries. This is especially frustrating as I made a detour to Swath Fell Pike as I thought it may be on some Mountain lists and therefore baggable.

Circular trigonometrical ground station recorded in the OS database as a buried block at 376145.719 495746.813. (Same style as Branstree). W side of fence, close to a stile and cairn. Lettering distinct and in good condition. Conical centre bolt. Not quite visible from the path on the other side of the fence but the station was exposed so surprising that it hasn't been noticed before.
