All of the summits in the Howgill Fells are superb viewpoints and the panorama from the Green Bell trig point is one of the best. To the south are the mass of the Howgills whilst to the north there is a superb view over the historic county of Westmorland towards the Cross Fell range of the North Pennines.
On my third visit, when low cloud meant that I was paying more attention to my immediate surroundings than the view, I noticed a stone next to the trig point. Situated just below the flush bracket the stone seems to be engraved with a number of initials together with the date ‘1953’.
