Beacon Fell Trig Point   |   Mesmerising Moments

A short walk into the dark, wild, wet night, with no light

the wind sounds of whistles and creaks, the trees exciting bending and bowing.

Feeling alive, but then the blackness surrounds, daytime familiar shapes appear sinister, the air feels chill, even over the winds warmth and bluster.

Eyes slowly tune in, the path through the trees becomes friendly. The white pillar of the summit trig point seems to glow as I approach it.

The vista from the summit is erie with dark cloud, distant house lights and car lights dotted across the gloomy blackness. I turn and feel the force of the wind in my face and struggle back to the car.

A quick tweet, a quick recording of the wind, the light from the phone breaks dark magic and, once in the silence of the car the wild evaporates.


Today’s Mesmerising Moment is by guest contributor Martin Brown of fairsnape.

One of Martin’s favourite pastimes is losing his mind to the wonder of nature.

You can read and see more of Martin’s adventures on his posterous blog and you can follow him on Twitter – @fairsnape.


If you live in Lancashire why not get outdoors and explore Beacon Fell for yourself?
