|Distance:||4 miles||Ascent:||956 feet|
|Time:||1 hur, 45 minutes|
|Weather:||Sunny and mild|
|Comments:||Having just gone into second lock down the gates at Wyresdale Park were closed so we joined the many cars parked on the roadside. A short detour took us to the Jubilee cairn before continuing on to the trig point on Nicky Nook. Walking along Grize Dale we decided to explore a footpath that isn't marked on the map. This took us back up to Nicky Nook.|
The cairn is a prominent landmark for cars passing on the M6 motorway and was erected in 1887 to mark Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Since then plaques have been added and the cairn repaired and re-dedicated by the Rotary Club of Garstang and Over Wyre to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees.
