Parked just by the cattle grid at NY 7564 0376 and walked along SSW side of wall heading WNW. Once almost at the top I had a tricky climb to do over the delicate wall with electric fences either side. This brought me into a field of what looked like bullocks who were interested in what I was up to but did not seem overly skittish. Pillar stands on plinth; top has nice cap with thick raised letters but area round spider appears to have been recemented; thin crack across W face of pillar and onto the S face; FB faces N; S sighthole open, others plugged.

Walk up from cattle grid to the east. Delicate work to cross the crumbling wall.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 27th May 1960 costing £37.14s.0d. Levelled for height in 1961. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NY71/T36 in 1962. Last maintained by the OS in July 1983. SITE VISIT: Approached this one from the southeast. Easy parking at NY756037 by cattle grid on A683. 1:25K map clearly shows what is access land. Electric fence seems to have fallen into disuse. Pillar in fair condition, with horizontal cracks in trunk. On large foundation plinth to combet erosion by livestock. Spider retains OS centre cap with raised large wide letters. Flush bracket faces due north. Vented through south sight hole. 360° open outlook.

Logged as good condition although as others suggest it does have a crack running down oneside but nothing has fallen off....yet! Lovely views in all directions a little bit of a gem. Watch out for the electric fence and the crumbly wall on the south side.

From the N or NW its on access land now so you can just clomp away across the moor if thats your thing - youll need to climb the wall if you dont use the ROW. From the ROW to the NW you will reach the wall towards the NW end of Ash Fell Edge. Do not go through the metal gate straight ahead, immediately before it a gateway on the left (no gate there today) gives access to the moor. Go through & follow the track as it heads briefly diagonally left before veering right to follow the wall approx 50 yards on your right (its much easier than following the wall, something I initially attempted). It eventually turns into a sheep trail and runs adjacent the wall shortly before reaching the trig. I intially made the mistake of going through the metal gate on the ROW & following the wall with it on my left and whilst the short, stubby pillars (not marked on my 2002 OS map) are interesting I had to back-track 3/4 of a mile to get to the other side of the wall (as ted says its marked as an electic fence too when you pass through the metal gate on the ROW - so traverse at your own risk). Really good views in most directions - Wild Boar Fell, Mallerstang, Green Bell etc. From KS rly sta. Revisited 02/01/2010 in fairly deep snow when my soul mate insited I pose by the trig. And again 16/02/1010. No cars, on foot x3!

From cattle grid to SE - wall a problem, better from NW probably.

Trig on a plinth; some cracks; plug intact. Good views (rain permitting) across Mallerstang. Best approached from NW via gate; nearby wall is fragile and has electric fence.
