Hiked up from Cononley Railway Station after bagging the Trig at 'Gib' on a circular walk. Marked down on the map as Pinhaw. Great views towards Lad Law, Pendle Hill, a distant Ingleborough and Pen-Y-Ghent, Fountains Fell, Rye loaf Hill, Kirkby Fell, Buckden Pike, Great Whernside, Sharp Haw, Rough Haw, Cracoe Fell, Thorpe Fell Top, Skipton, Skipton Moor, Ilkley Moor, and Airedale. Freezing cold wind at the summit, great hike. You can follow a detailed blog of this walk by tapping Fell Finder into Google.

Just a few hundred yards off what is locally known as the Skipton Old Road across Elslack Moor - the original direct ten mile route linking Skipton in Yorkshire with Colne in Lancashire. Trig is on the site of a Napoleonic alarm beacon. Robert Wilson, a beacon keeper, died a few dozen yards away, having succumbed to severe winter weather in 1805. His grave here was/is marked but he was subsequently disinterred and re-buried in Elslack churchyard.

Visible and accessible. On Pennine Way footpath. We walked up from the small parking area on the nearby road to the north. This was passed just after eight on a lovely frosty morning as we continued on our Trans Pennine Way route from Garstang to Ripon. Pillar in excellent condition with plastic plug.

First visited on the Pinhaw Moor Fell Race from Earby back in the 80s. Today I was an easy-peaser and walked with my family and dog from the carpark. It was cold and clear and views up the Dales were good.

Execellent views today, nice 360 degree panorama, unfortunately some idiot had forgotten to take his Box Brownie with him!! Came up from Skipton along a higgledy piggledy route to join the Pennine Way and ended up in Cononley. Nice walk. Easy peasy-ers & plastics can bag it from the nearby car park.

Freezing fog had covered the pillar in a pattern of frost. Apparently this site was part of the early warning system during the Napoleonic invasion scare.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 14th April 1948 costing £19.12s.11d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station SD96/8 the the Skipton block. Flush bracket S4451 was levelled for height in 1962. This marker was last maintained by the OS in May 1976. OS archive has S4457. I had this one on my lists as Pinhaw Beacon for the many years before the OS official names became available through the public domain. Heather clad top.

Change of rock type soon - off the grit and shales and into the limestone - bye bye peat bogs hello springy grass. Cup of tea in Gargrave at the cafe whose owner I met at Top Withins yesterday.
