SK1498 : A vital cairn

4 km from Dunford Bridge, Barnsley, Great Britain

A vital cairn
A vital cairn
In some wilderness areas there are too many cairns. Here on the Derwent Watershed they are few and far between so each one is vital especially if you still use a map and compass on days when you can't see more than a few metres ahead and refuse to buy a (cheats) GPS. The section of the watershed from Outer Edge to Bleaklow Stones is very tricky to navigate so this cairn is a vital landmark.
