Topographical features: It is interesting to note that Wainwright’s summit was the small cairn with the boundary stone. He also commented that it was marked with a benchmark. On the 6 inch OS map this was given as a height of 2201.8(feet) which AW would normally round up to 2202′. On the same map some distance to the north west was a trig point of 2201′. This however was obviously unmarked at the time by any sort of cairn. He chose to use the boundary stone as a reference feature as the fell summit. Only a few years later, after completed his work on the Far Eastern Fells Pictorial Guide an official trig column was built on the site of the 2201′ trig point. That is why it doesn’t appear in the book. The area has since been resurveyed and the true highest point of the fell is 80m south west of the trig column and is unmarked.
