Quite sad now looking at this http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1205299
    It is very sad looking, very wrong too!

    Great to see all the other trig points in seemingly now odd locations.

    Love that!

    This is what Meugher looked like this time last year...



    In summer all that windblown fell is carpeted in Harestail Cottongrass tussocks. Certainly seldon visited i think, dispite being in the National Park.

    Re: Seldom visited trigs

    Went to the trig at Mark Hill at the weekend via Stony Grooves Lead Mine. It was quite a stiff nav challenge having to walk in a dead straight line for nearly 2 miles, and my course was in error due to the deviation between grid and magnetic north.

    It really is in the middle of nowhere...


    There are some lovely ruined structures and buildings at Stony Grooves...

    Bagged Burton Fell today. It was a bit of a battle accross the firing range- boggy, desolate- it was a non live-firing day so i'm still alive. I didn't manage to find any unexploded ordnance unfortunately, but i did find Tarn House which i haven't seen for 20yrs, and some army stuff on the fell top. It was snowing and the terrain was tough, it took me 3 hours to go 7.5m.

    Tarn House, a large ruined farmstead

    Army stuff


    The trig had seen better days

    Visited this un-named trig on Yockenthwaite Moor today. Good route for a run out- totally pathless open fell, no heather just bogs and tussocks. Went up from Cray via Crook gill where there are some staggeringly beautiful and immense features.

    One of many falls in Crook Gill, the plunge pool was about 10 feet deep

    That there is Middle Tongue trig. Until the last couple of years the fellsman route went right past it. I could see it not too far away as I rounded the top of Deepdale in this years fellsman. Yockenthwaite Moor had a load of visiting fellsmanners the weekend before last

    Great pictures Mr B. Real wilderness stuff.

    I've thought in the past, when looking at the YD map, that Meugher looks like a good place to run to.

    I bet it is seldom visited.

    Cannock chase Trig point race has one that is seldom seen but visited often if that makes any kind of sense. Its not even on the OS map but there is a bench mark on a concrete block sunk into the ground which is not easy to find for the uninitiated.
