|6th and final top of the day, after High Mount back to intersection then East becoming rougher and past quarry that again looked quite high to park up beside track heading North then cut through trees and over mossy wall to small ridge with high point beside conifers but near open area. Back a similar way.. I stopped at the quarry to the Sw and recorded a higher point at the rim next to trees. Again it seems that HP should be at the quarry.||Dazingdale||21/09/2019|

|After Stannery Knowe. High Mount has quite the spookiest summit area which I've ever seen - a moss covered old wall surrounding gnarled and misshapen trees, covered in drapes of feathery moss. Wonderful.||Colin Crawford||10/12/2016|
