A couple of views from Letcliffe ParK.

The chimney looks out of place with all the new houses surrounding it.

The fault of the new houses not the chimney. When they reach the end of their useful life, the stack will still be there....

My view from 'Up Here', a bit of weak winter sun and definitely no snow!

A lovely end to the day and Feebie was enjoying the view...

Image

The windows were too dirty for any more photos so I went outside to see the sunset.

Image

Bertie wasn't too impressed.

Image

I love the curving track and the walls.

Image

The lights are already coming on across the clough...

Very clear views at sunset this evening. Is the hill in the distance Wolf Hole Crag?

I have just drawn a ruler line on Google Earth from your patio Wendy, skirting Weets and extended it through to the Bowland Fells and it could well be Wolfhole Crag. Difficult to be definitive without a bearing from your viewpoint, would be a lot easier with this of course.

If I'd known you were out on my patio I would have invited you in for a drink! If it's as clear tomorrow I'll attempt to get a bearing... :smile: do I have to get a compass out or will Col be able to help me with more modern gps technology if I ask him nicely?

A compass bearing would be quickest probably but a good gps fix would do just the same job although using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. :smile:

It's a long time since I had to take a compass bearing....but I'm sure I can do it! The sledgehammer could well be busy with more important stuff anyway.

Ok, I've got my compass out, and found magnetic north (while standing at the corner of the gable end of the house) and pointed my arrow somewhere in the region of the peak in question and the bearing appears to be 298 degrees.....but that is probably the wrong way to express it!

298 degrees from your gable end plotted on Google Earth dissects between Wolfhole Crag and White Hill.

Wolfhole is 527m/1729ft and has quite a pointed profile.

White Hill is behind Stock Reservoir at the outer reaches of the Forest of Bowland and rises to 544m/1729ft with a more rounded summit the profile matches your photo better.

I cant make any compensation for Magnetic North variation on Google Earth as that would require mapping with the yearly variation marked to plot with absolute accuracy.

The profiles of the hills shown on Google Earth would make me lean towards White Hill. If you find the summit markers on GE you can click on them and it will show you details and profile.

I used the ruler function to draw a line at the required bearing from your compass reading point.

Thanks Ian! I found it quite difficult to line the compass up on such a distant object.

One with a flip up sighting bar would have been best but under normal circumstances with much closer landmarks you don't really need that feature and a standard rambling type flat compass is all you need.

How about this for a nice bit of kit. 5 inch dial with a vernier angle measurer. On displace in the Earby mining museum.

Yes! The Skipton road was gritted first thing so there is traffic moving on that, but Bleara Road looks fairly impassable as yet.
The snow has stopped now and its thawing already but the NE wind is getting up...brrrr.

2 to 3 inches down in Barlick, already turning to slush on the pavements when I walked up to school at 8.15 this morning. Roads gritted and driveable, Sally came back from her Motown soiree in Harrogate just after lunch. She came back via the A59 over Blubberhouses and the roads were fine.
