La'al Ratty from Dalegarth to Ravenglass and then walked back - v boggy in places but overall an excellent day out! Another LD trig punching a long way above its weight on the height : views ratio - clear 360 degree panorama today. Stone built; metal cap; shallow letters; spider stamped JLC SEC VC; all s/holes open; otherwise vgc

Train to Ravenglass then walked up via Fell lane & the tarn. Nice 360 views from the summit,with the main draw being the giants of Wasdale looming to the North East. Continued back on to the bridleway & on to Eskdale Green where refreshments were taken at King George IV pub before returning on the La'al Ratty behind Lady Wakefield.

Lovely viewpoint. Fine stone built trig. Bolt visible through open sighting holes (although there is some debris dropped down the open centre).

We took the little train from Ravenglass to Eskdale Green then walked back via the Trigpoint and Geocache, a lovely walk and an interesting Trigpoint.

Walked from Muncaster Castle car park to trig via Fell Lane and Muncaster tarn. Although there is no marked path on map OL 6, a well trodden route leads to the trig. Extremely windy on the day but cracking views.

Quick run up to the summit, leaving pack with the rest of the DoE team lower down. Very windy - maybe just not used to summit conditions yet :) Day 2 of 4 on the 50 mile hike, and my only trig. Great views, nice stone-built trig.

vgc, stonebuilt, no cap or plug, nice grass & rock summit, fine albeit hazy view. Big walking group at summit so no pics.

Walked up Fell Lane with slight detour round western side of Muncaster Tarn (beautiful even on a wet day) then cut through wood and up bank to rejoin footpath and on to a wet Hooker Crag with its untriglike shape no views this morning but the Tarn made the effort well worthwhile.

Stone Pillar, plug missing Nice walk through woodland and past small tarn. Good views of the Scarfells

We parked at the sharp corner to the south west. A very pleasant walk up past pasture and through woodland (nice little tarn) to the open fell. Excellent views. Pillar is constructed of local stone. Plug missing.

Snow on all the fells around - corny fell road still blocked

An excellent view point for the Scar Fells and more,and with very little effort to achieve,only 750 feet of ascent from Fell Lane.
Muncaster Fell summit and Trig point. A fantastic view point for the Sca Fells for such little effort.

Approached from SW via mapped RoW (Fell Lane). Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in September 1949 costing £11.4s.0d. In 1952 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY11/19 in the Workington block. Flush bracket S5763 was levelled for height in 1956. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in November 1976. Stone built pillar. No photos taken.

Caught the train up the valley then walked back over the Fell, then footpath through grounds of Muncaster Hall back to Ravenglass station car park. Super day out.
