Up and down from the car park in order to walk off a very good lunch at the Hare and Hounds in Bowland Bridge. Party of very polite Asian primary school kids from Manchester for company (wish my junior education had been as exciting) plus Luing cows on vegetation control. Overcast but cloud at c 800m so great all round views. Stone built pillar; strange shape; missing a large stone on each of SE and SW corners at FB level with significant cracking above each gap; all except W s/hole open; concrete cap.

Looks more like a cairn than a trig pillar. Access via the stone staircase, in between showers.

Today was hazy, but on a clear day there would be great views up Windermere and across to the mountains.

Lovely views over Windermere and towards the Yorkshire Dales from this very scenic viewpoint, as marked on the OS Landranger sheet 97. Stopped for a picnic by the easy footpath that leads up to Gummers How before spending 10 minutes walking to the top and a good half hour admiring the views.

Odd stone built pillar - good view point.
10th Jul 2009 08:29 by wrose
Visited as part of a walk doing some of Wainwright's Outlying Fells tath are in this area. Early morning visit so free from people which also enabled me to get the two nearby caches. Odd shaped pillar but in good order. Wonderfull views which no doubt is the reason for so many visitors coming here.

I can't believe we've never been here before, probably wouldn't have if there hadn't been a trig to find. Visited this one as we were leaving The Lakes - travelling south. Good place to park, a modest climb and for that you get a bird's-eye view of Windermere and stunning views all round. Highly recommended !
Metalwork looks good

Great view from the top, though very blustery. Walked up from the nearby car park.

Lovely walk up to the stone trig from Gummers How car park. Bright sunshine and fresh breeze. Great views of Windermere and the Langdale pikes. Plug missing.

Lancashire. Easy though steep walk up from the lane to this stone built pillar. Good views, though more clouds on the high peaks of the central Lake District. Concrete infilled plug with a brass spider.

Went up the Howe on a late afternoon, after the hords. Watched a pair of hot air balloons set off from the otherside of Windermere. It was lovely and quiet up there.
Our two scaling the dizzy heights of the trig I wonder how many youngsters have climbed the trig in its life time?©cleggs-leggs

vgc, stonebuilt, mortar plug, appears to have been rebuilt at some point, not v symmetrical. Fine rocky summit, path busy with walkers and even a few cows, but had summit to myself. Grey day, limited view, but a great little hill.

Viewed this trig from the Lake Windermere Ferry.
23rd Apr 2006 15:05 by lackofluke
A fitting end to an excellent weekend of orienteering in the Lakes, definitely worth the effort to climb up the hill. Sunny weather and fantastic views in almost every direction. I really didn't want to leave as that meant a 5-and-a-half-hour drive back to Oxford....
Top of the trig Centre hole seems to have been concreted up.

I was disappointed the previous day to have climbed Brant Fell SD4097596143 and to have found the trig point marked on the 1:25 000 map missing. I should have done my homework better as there is no reference to it on this site. It was therefore a relief to climb this hill and find an attractive trig made from local stone even if it does appear to be on a diet. I even persuaded Mother Ted to make the climb.

Approached from the south. Parking provided at NY389876. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in July 1949 costing £12.8s.11d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station SD47/16 in the Barrow-in-Furness block. Flush bracket S5640 was levelled for height also in 1950. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1976. Slender stone built pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with concrete. Open outlook viewing other Lakeland fells. No photos taken.
