Stone built pillar. Low rounded hill in northern Lake District near Cockermouth. Car parked on minor road near Burthwaite, a few roadside spaces available close to gate giving access to open fell. Ascent via Corpse Road, then grassy path swinging up to the summit. Very wet and windy day after unseasonably humid start to October. Would be a good viewpoint on a nice day.

Revisit to obtain GPS reading forgotten in June. Parked on verge at NY182291. Direct line up northeastern slope from perimeter path. Stone built secondary station pillar in good condition. Completed 24th November 1949 costing £16.6s.6d. 360° panorama from top. I do wish everybody would use this site respectfully and log their trig bags properly, rather than the `I was here` approach. Incomplete logs containing the likes of `FB number unlogged`, `condition unknown` etc, are not helpful and just spread out good informative logs in a `wood for the trees` fashion. Previous loggers `jlc, melch, morcambe monkey, splash, peebs, gowrie`, please put some effort into these logs - waste of web space as they stand!

A masonry pillar in very good condition with excellent views of the Skiddaw range and also across the Cumbrian plain to the Solway, Scotland and Criffel. I climbed the fell from the south, firstly crossing Wythop Moss that due to the recent dry weather was not the morass that I was expecting. From this angle the fell is akin to the side of a house and equally unremitting.

Top screed missing corners. I reluctantly accept S5771 - looks like S5777 to me - but that is Bruxie Hill.

After completing a without Pillar Rock circuit of E+W 2000' summits in the burning sun on Fleetwith pike yesterday it was down to earth with driving rain and a painful hit of the plastic. This evening walk was fortunately tied in to a window in the rain and though the mist was down the trig itself was in grand shape. Parked at the end of the old copse road and took advantage of the fell having been declared access land earlier in the week.

The 10 has nothing to do with this fell though it a great little grassy hummock with good views but for completing the Wainwrights and having my family with me.

From Wythop, bracken all the way. Skiddaw obscured by cloud. Used rope to train our new border collie Immy without success.
