Pleasent walk from Crook Peak, fine views even under grey and murky skies. Warm and light rain. Trig point appears to be on a flattened tumulus. High ground on N side of fence 500m WNW of trig is of similar height. I liked the inscription on the stone seat ' Only a hill but all of life to me'RichardM24/07/2016
