It is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland. Wainwright describes a circular walk from Grizedale.


Near the trig point is one of a series of hidden letterboxes placed in various locations throughout the Lake District.

  • From the trig point go 70 paces 335° to a large standing stone type boulder; the box is 5 paces away under a rock in a small cave behind stones.
