Parked at Kirkby Stephen Station and caught train to Garsdale for walk back. Thanks to Earby Rambler, found the excellent ATV track which leads up over Bubble Hill from SD801944 then all the way to the summit of Ure Head. Continue north along ATV to SD807969 (county boundary corner). North from here, the ATV is ill defined but picked up faint path over Hugh Seat & Gregory Chapel which runs roughly along the county boundary. ATV track is again picked up prior to High Seat. Trig is easy to find and looks recently excavated. Return walk was north then west and descending via Hush to Pendragon Castle then tracks and paths passing Wharton Hall and left at Halfpenny House.

WOW! I walked up from Garsdale Station after alighting the 07.05 Skipton to Carlisle train, taking the Pennine Bridleway from the Moorcock Inn up to High Dyke. Then followed fence line up to Bubble Hill across to Sails, Little Fell, Hugh Seat, & Archy Styrigg. A brilliant but long hike up & back thankfully on very dry ATV tracks all the way to the summit, in good weather with fantastic views. I called in for a well earned pint at the Moorcock Inn before my 16.00 train back to Skipton.

A+ for perseverance here, mainly because following perfect frosty blue skies a freezing fog comes over - that and getting the wrong cairn. Nice wig of moss to hide the obvious hollow. The ring is just before the first cairn on the summit coming from Nateby road - don't make the same mistake we did and look for it by the bigger cairns further along the top. Quite a magical spot, semi-inversion on Great Shunner on the way back.

After jonglew's recent work, ring had been covered with turf & two stones (presumably from nearby cairn) - why??? Moved stones to cairn & managed to kick out turf, leaving ring under water. I could ascertain ring was complete- have seen it several times in the past.

The bolt at the centre of the ring has a small hole at its centre surrounded by 4 concentric rings.

Walked up from Outhgill with Roger Templeman. Grass encroaching a lot and hole full of water and peaty sludge but easily identifiable, approx 2.5m NW of the small summit cairn. Dug away surrounding grass/soil etc and bailed out the water to fully expose the ring. Large pyramidal bolt at centre. Appox 30cm deep.

From Pendragon via Gale Sike and hush. Managed to get to the top before the cloud lifted! It's pretty bleak when you can't see owt! ring easily found though in a deeper void than ive seen before. Summit is marked by a pathetic cairn. so much so I very nearly walked passed. Right, off to Sails now.

I'd been up here before, but that was just before the concrete ring was discovered. First of these I've seen. Easy find, full of water.

Found correct spot by cairn with help of GPS but failed to find trig due to depth of snow and ice. Revisited 27/2/13 and found it this time but had to break through a couple of inches of ice to expose ring

This is just a pile of stones as far as I could see. Tough climb from Kirkby Stephen, via Nine Standards Rigg.

Walked up from Outhgill, not recommended for those with heart disease as a relentless climb. BBC weather forecast lied, so instead of sunshine had cloud and, later, sleet. Ring trig found easily next to the marker cairn. Bailed it out. Water freezing so didnt bother at the next ring trig (Sails). NB trig postion isnt NY8020001300, thats just the name of the trig... see logs for actual position

Excellent find Ted, my first submerged trig ! The hole was full of water today I had to plunge my arm in up to the elbow to feel for the Bolt, after using my bait box to bail out I got a couple of photos, a hard won trig as the mist today meant some compass work from the Birkdale road and this was my second attempt last week I headed up from Outhgill but frozen snow on Mallerstang edge forced a retreat

Circular trigonometrical ground station. Described in the OS database as a buried block at 380204.969 501262.813 Thought initially that it had gone but found in a shallow hole with a covering of vegetation. Either the circumference never had any lettering or else it has worn away. Conical bolt. Located close to a small pile on stones on the path.

Above date is latest of four visits, first being 30.7.78. Earlier visits found cairns to north and south but none on the actual top. There's now a small pile of stones on the crown of the broad summit ridge.
