|The summit cairn|
- Who was the unnamed Keswick gentleman resident?
- If the first 'cairn of some antiquity' is the one referred to, it is not the summit, yet the best view from Keswick. It is certainly not now 40 feet in circumference and 15 feet high - if it is the one referred to.
- If this is the cairn then why is there no debris field around the small hollow specimen that remains?
- If it is the second cairn on the actual summit, is what lies strewn around a 'debris field' of the original and now only masses of grassed over boulders?
- If either is correct, why was the cairn so comprehensively destroyed?
- Who destroyed it?

With reference to Pillar Rock in the Ennerdale valley, knowing the view from this and Hindscarth, the explanation contained within the below biblical quotation is obvious for their original source.
See below for the 'whole of the land' view from Hindscarth.
