Tampering update

Alan Dawson

The surveyors' hatchets had a little less success last year, with Lovely Seat the only Marilyn casualty, being demoted just a few days after the April 2010 update sheet was published. Arnside Knott and Lambrigg Fell survived as Marilyns, Harter Fell failed to be promoted, and the highest point of Rhiw Gwraidd was identified. The Seager Hill summit was also pinned down, not by a survey but through diligent research on old OS maps by George Gradwell and Chris Crocker. Other surveys established the precise height of several summits on the borderline of various lists. Summary of findings below.
