The trig point is 2m lower than the summit of Baugh Fell which is located two thirds of a mile away on Tarn Rigg Hill. Somewhat confusingly the trig point is listed as East Baugh Fell even though it is on the westernmost of Baugh Fell’s two summits.

The view from the East Baugh Fell trig point is slightly hindered by the nearby wall and the higher ground to the east. There is however a good prospect west towards the Howgill Fells, alway a fine sight.
