Quite a nice spot. Its probably quieter here as its not on the main foottrack. North side of wall, had to climb over wall to reach it.

Approached from Arkengarthdale past the mines on Whaw Edge. Lots of birdlife, Curlew, lapwings, oyster catchers, goolden plover and woodcock. Minimal views due to low cloud and blowing a gales hence low score.

Walked in from Gunnerside using Friarfold Rake and then Forefield Rake, very windy for August, but warm and sunny. The wall beside the trig has recently been rebuilt, possibly because folk climb the wall to visit the trig, which makes me wonder why they didn't build a step stile into it! Several places to climb across easily, one by the old boundary stone. Some slight damage to top of pillar which has been repaired.

The promised snow showers started as we arrived at the sheep fold 500m to SE. It was difficult to see anything with a few minutes, but located trig OK. Return to car was quite tricky - the track disappearing quickly under drifting snow.

Did a approx 6 mile round wak from Surrender Bridge (SD989999). Moorland location close to boundry wall. Views to N. Plug missing. Summit shown on map as Great Pinseat.

vgc, asphalt plug, concrete base eroded but pillar intact. Boggy moorland, N side of wall, late evening, heavy shower on the way up, jogged down in last remnants of daylight. Good track then short bogtrot. Revisited for the trig.

Found whilst on a circular walk from Surrender Bridge to Great Pinseat and back. Requires a quick detour off the path to find the trig lurking behind the wall. Extensive remains of lead mining on the walk including probably the best preserved remains at Old Gang Smelting Mills.

Another trig built next to a dry stone wall. Nice moorland views. Pillar in good condition but spider centre has been replaced with tarmac plug.

Interesting approach from Langthwaite past old mine workings. Trig is on N side of wall, tarmac plug, 2 sighting-holes open. Hazy views towards the A66. Curlews adding a sense of remoteness.
