Parked by the cattle grid on the B6261 at NY 6002 0912 - by the course of a Roman road. I walked up the bridleway to the north and, where the tracks divide (at NY 5996 1026) I struck out to the NW across the heather and brush, trying to pick a route that didn’t involve too much crossing of thick heather. The fell is obviously well managed as there are patches of burnt or dead heather between the living. There are a few strange metal pyramids around the place which seem to have some trays of white grit next to them. Not sure what they’re about though! Reaching the top I disturbed several sheep who were enjoying the grass around the pillar. There is a very large cairn about 35m east of the pillar. The pillar itself overlooks a good deal of countryside - I could just about make out the North Side pillar (TP5175) 3.5 miles away - and Shap Summit on the M6. Pillar is in good nick and has a coarse stone-chip covering but is missing plug/cap; FB faces S; N sighthole open, others plugged. A cold brisk wind prevented me from staying too long at the top!

Stopped off on the way back up the road for a wee leg stretch. Surprisingly good spot but not great visibility today despite the great weather. Could see intense rainstorms pounding the Border hills.

Up Bridleway from B6261 & then cut NW for a trudge across the heather. Top location for a trig,good views(considering the amount of cloud about)of the Far Eastern Lakeland fells. Very windy on top.

Walked up the roman road and struck over the moors shortly after I breasted the highest point. Lovely late afternoon. Excellent view point.

Roman road then a wobbly path to miss the worst of the heather. I managed purely by chance to go by five white-topped posts which marked sites where two foot square pieces of the top soil had been removed as some sort of survey. Marvellous views in a 360 degree panorama.

Roman road from south, then across the heather. Good views all round. Good path north east from trig past new butts back to Roman road.

Limestone fell overlooking the scenic splendour of Junction 39 of the M6. Apart from this a very fine view. Intact pillar in good condition. Hign number,possibly a replacement for the lost pillar above Hardendale.
