Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Lovely walk up from car park near Falling Foss tea room, up to Old May Beck then Ann's Cross the Aux and then trigpoint. Great day out with tea to finish at the tea room.thejackrustles29/04/2019
From A169 at Eller Beck Bridge with a couple of inches of new snow on the ground. A grey day with low cloud/mist. Couldn't even see RAF Fylingdales. Followed a set of footprints to the track junction just short of point 292. There were more footprints and cycle tracks here but I saw no-one. Up to the trig and adjacent bump. Back the same way.Clach Liath20/01/2019
HEMA activation (Humps excluding Marilyns, Amateur Radio). Warm day, the path from Ella Beck parking indistinct in some areas.. Follow the M.O.D. white marker poles. A bit of ‘bog hopping needed in places!G0DEB55923/06/2018
Diversion off reverse Lyke Wake (from Ravenscar to Fylingdales)paulcook280919/05/2018
Parked in wide entrance to bridleway at Eller Beck Bridge - Followed bridleway, boggy in places, to vehicle track at 882985. After about 1km the bridleway is waymarked with 6ft high white posts - Along vehicle track to junction & then N. along vehicle track to trig point & Louven Howe, the tumulus 20m S. of trig point. The tumulus, topped with a boundary stone, is significantly higher than the trig point. (S)gerrybowes27/04/2018
From roadside car park (NZ 8521 0286), 11.5km + 2hrs15 + incessant rain + waterlogged track = almost soul destroying. But all made good by a pair of trig pillars.jonglew12/03/2018

From May Beck. The last Hump in Sect 37thenomad02/11/2017
With Jenx and Bryher, parked at Eller Bridge and took the soggy farmers track out up the beck. AFter the overnight rain the becks were in spate and crossing for little Eller beck was thoughtful. Glad we found the spot as on way back the burn was higher still and we waded the safe section found. Track up the hill was pretty wet and desperate. It can be noted that another higher track can be taken a little further up from the white posts at GR96949 98236, this allows the hard track to be reached more easily which in turn gets to the gate below the trig and near Lilla Crossnordicstar11/09/2017
A good wet walk across the moors after heavy rain overnight.jenx11/09/2017

With K. Trudge through light rain. Is nearby cross at Lilla Howe a Christianised standing stone? Weathering near top may support that idea. Lilla could be corruption of Welsh Llia?Ashley19/03/2017

Mrs Anchovy deposited me at the CP at NZ855026 and ten miles later I was picked up from Robin Hood's Bay having visited Stony Leas and Fylingdales Moor (Shooting House Rigg). Cold, grey day.Herbert Anchovy01/04/2016
Out and back from Eller Beck where car park closed for constructions works at moment. Followed white posts thru marshy ground up. Returned a good distance on bridleway that heads for 'Official Secret Act' boundary then chickened out. Not sure that this could connect to Permissive Path thru gate at SE865983.Eddie30/03/2016
With Jo, circular walk from road opposite Whinstone Ridge cp (cp being used at moment for storing road materials): Sleights Moor then NW to trig, then moor and tracks eastwards to Littlebeck, then onto Fylingdales Moor, then turning south on track to Stony Leas – Louven Howe (top and 2 trigs), before returning NW along deep rutted wet track to car. Weather; sunny, mild, moderate visibility.amblerbob13/03/2016

Parking available at Ellerbeck Bridge along the access track to Fen Bogs. Then a walk along a newly created bridleway up towards Lilla Cross. This is dry and easy to follow if you track the white marker posts. After passing through a gate onto a chalk road turn left. This leads directly to the summit. Just under 2 hours return trip.moorsman31/07/2014
