Detour from coast walk from St Bees to Whitehaven.Crib Goch02/10/2019
Despite threatening notices at the start of the road running east from Sandwith it is possible to drive as far as the mast. Then you can follow a series of stiles and faded waymarks to the very summit. This is not a tresspass as there is public access throughout. Saw the farmer in the adjacent field. Waved to each other so was obviously quite happy with me being at the summit. 3.72 km return, 45 minutesmoorsman09/05/2019

W Jenx & MT from St.Bees beach CP, fine coastal path to lighthouse. Then marked FP not on map down the lane and shortcut up sheep pasture to gain track from aerial. Used lane, stiles & over barbed wire obstacles to reach trig then top at field edge. Easy romp direct back through fields to start. Warm, muggy day, thunderstorms over lakes.nordicstar04/08/2012
With son Jamie. Parked next to the radio mast to the north and walked south. Getting very dusky with blanket of thick grey cloud at about 2000feet. Fascinated to find it was a primary. Made a pencil rubbing on cartridge paper of the spider,flush bracket and a bit of the OS plate. Big thanks to Clochandighter for the interesting extra info from his May 2009 visit.HISTORY: Pillar built around February 1936, cost not on record. Computed as Primary station PP1 within Figure 7 of the OSGB36 Primary Retriangulation network in 1952. Levelled for height in 1965. Continues to be maintained by the OS as a GPS Passive station, plate affixed to pillar. Fourth trig of the evening. There seem to be many clustered close together around here.

Up via High House farm, trudge on bridle way over several well built sturdy stiles to avoid padlocked gates. Very muddy esp. in final field - my idea of what Somme was like. No view - fog. 12.30.arranc21/03/2011
Walked across fields from ST Bees. Not on access land, lots of gates and fences to climb.citygent12/01/2010
Trig point. From mast to north. Dull walk to bag insignificant top. I think a walk around the cliffs would be much more rewarding.PeteF31/10/2009
