The Brownthwaite Trig point is located on a knoll which can be easily reached from a track leaving the Fell Road on its way to Bullpot Farm. The trig point isn’t actually on the highest point of Barbon Low Fell, the true summit being a rock on a neighbouring knoll about 85m to the south-east.
The view from the Brownthwaite trig point is largely dominated by the higher fells in the region such as Calf Top, Crag Hill, Great Coum and Gragareth. Meanwhile the view to the south is quite extensive and includes the north Bowland fells.
