Following in the tyre tracks of my fellow trigger 'THE CYCLIST' I hope he doesn't mind - but I'll not be trying to emulate his multi trig one hundred mile marathons. I'll be struggling back home with a mere 35 miles on the clock.Correction - that was a bit optimistic - the clock only said 27 miles.

I came up here just to check on the Battlestead Hill block but as I was passing Sinai I thought I'd have a look. Must have spent half an hour without any success. I remembered from my first log where I'd seen it and I'd got the photos and logs on my phone but I still couldn't find it. My fellow trigger 'THE CYCLIST' didn't have any trouble with this and he operates without gps or a phone. Must try harder.

A repeat log. Past this way several times recently on lockdown bike rides without realising. So a look see as no logs since 2013. No yellow paint and a covering of soil and brambles. Took a bit of exposing. Correction - as I came away I could just see the remains of the yellow paint - may be more visible when the gutters are cleaned.

Logged some time ago - but going nowhere far now so another log by bike. Only seven miles from home - a bit steep and rough on the track from No Man's Heath - good job it's dry. Good views on a sunny day. I continued along Salt Street to the mast - this really is a rough track with pot holes two foot deep in places - some filled with water - it would be impassable by bike in wet weather. At one point I nearly got mowed down by two young chaps on motor bikes with L plates.

Good old CJO (again). The log's long gone - took a bit of finding - left uncovered. A bike trip - at the extreme of my range. ps. The rest of my ride ended in a trigpointing disaster - I'd planned to ride onto Wolgarston, Acton Trussell and Dark Side Wood. I rode past Wolgarston without realising and went onto Acton Trussell - no sign of the ROW through the (posh) houses to the east so I had a look at the ROW to the north - again no sign of it up the driveway to the converted farm - I thought about the gateway but there were people working at the farm and bulls in the field - reluctantly I gave up. So I retraced my steps back to Wolgarston - lots of traffic on the busy road, again people working at the farm and an electric fence to negotiate - another failure. With this I headed for home - the only consolation was a pint and a plate of noodles in The Plaza Rugeley. I'd done more than 60 miles - my longest bike ride in 60 years.

Well I've passed many times since I first logged this pillar six years ago - every time thinking I might see Yorkshire Water in attendance and the gate open. Thought it was my lucky day - passed the van and pulled into the lay by - the chap was in the van working. I asked if I could enter the compound and inspect the pillar - "sorry sir it's a restricted area" - but I only want to take a photo - "more than my job's worth sir" - oh go on you can hold my hand! - "sorry sir but if you give me your camera I'll unlock and take a photo for you" - ok then. So that's as near as I got. Perhaps next time.

Last for today - Christmas dinner now - the traditional Cornish pastie. The (very friendly) farmer was feeding cows nearby and came to join me at the pillar. He explained that exposed base was caused by wind erosion the soil being very fine. He said that health and safety concerns were making him think that the pillar should be moved. I agreed with him and said that I'd just visited Fingay Hill where the pillar had been moved to the nearby hedgerow. After a long chat we agreed that it would be best to relocate the pillar behind the nearby mast. Anyone wanting to visit could then walk up the track without damaging the crops and using machinery in the field would be much easier. He was very interested in preserving local heritage and I'm sure the pillar will be sympathetically moved possibly after the field is harvested. When I finally sat down for my dinner I found that I'd not put my pastie in my rucksack so no Christmas dinner for me after all.

A great find by jonglew. Had to come and have a look on a lovely sunny afternoon following my previous failure. Looking back now on my photos I don't seem to have seen the same rivet. My object was on the centre of the roof and jonglew's towards the edge. Didn't get up on the roof though too many about - just got on some steps that I just happened to have with me! Perhaps someone more brazen (and knowledgeable) can get up there and decide if I've made a boo-boo. Looked to me like the bolts I've seen on the top of concrete water tanks.

My satmap said I was on top of the pillar but I couldn’t find it. I decided to break out into the field and try from the broken stile in the corner of the walls. Even then I spent about ten minutes wandering about in the brambles and bracken before I found it. Would suggest it's best to go over the gate opposite the reservoir and up the farm track.

Had some trouble here. Asked at the yard but Saturday afternoon nobody in reception so interrupted a maintenance course in progress upstairs. Chap leading the course said there were bulls in the field so refused access and suggested I should walk down the road. My interruption in the proceeding pleased the course members and gave them a bit of fresh air and an unofficial fag break. Tried the other route but couldn't find the track past the house and no bulls in the field. Will definitely need permission from the yard and as suggested by CURRYSKRIM better in the week not weekend. Continued back to Edwinstowe to complete the 12 mile walk.

Challenged by posh lady ploughing. Nearly didn't make it. I took the same route as THE CYCLIST – got through the gate with two private signs in full view of a tractor working in the field at the side of the track. I was expecting trouble – the tractor came across and approached in front of me down the track. I immediately asked for permission to visit the pillar by proceeding down the track then turning left up to the trigpoint. The lady said I was on private land and there was no way to the pillar – after some discussion she agreed that there was a track and I could visit the pillar as long as I returned the same way. Looking back I think it would have been easier up the hedge line – the field only had stubble and was out of view of the farm and the troublesome lady – and it’s much shorter. The nearby pole and aerial are a seismic monitoring station (so the lady said). Good parking at the end of the lane.

Nobody in at farm looks deserted; gates locked and bolted so major trespass from Quee Lane 200m east of farm. No crops and no livestock just mown silage. All quite up here. Came down Staffordshire Way from Uttoxeter. I’d been holding back on this – one of my nearest not visited trigs – it looks difficult and very exposed on the map surrounded by four farms. But it was easier than expected even without permission. It’s not arable land and hedges and small fields give plenty of cover. So it’s bagged even without the help from Wilf and Dave.

One of the more challenging trigpoints. Good parking at the start of the track to the east. Walk down the track to the corner and get over the fence near WW2 pill box. Walk up the field boundary with the hedge on your right. When you get to the wood jump the fence ignoring the MOD warning signs. This diagonal hedge gets you within about 20m of the pillar. No helicopters or off roaders today. Needless to say this easy route is not they route I took to the pillar. I entered the field near the road and got spooked when a farmer returned with a tractor – I had to jump two fences with barbed wire and nettles. When I got back and looked at my route I was within about 100m of Driffield West at one point. Still it’ll make another adventure.

Thanks CJO for the log and photos of my problem bolt. I didn’t have the sketch but realised the importance of the alignment with the tree. I think it was the depth and lack of digging equipment that defeated me (and the queues of traffic going to the market). Will try harder on my next visit.

After the success of ‘The RockKnocker’ and my previous two unsuccessful attempts to find this bolt I thought I’d have another try. I was expecting the bolt to have been left exposed but I found little evidence of ground disturbance. A limited amount of digging with a small trowel in the likely areas drew a blank. Although the photo of ‘The RockKnocker’ and his Rottweiler is charming, a view of the bolt would have been more useful. The brown Skirkington sign has now disappeared (or gone to the local didie camp) but the posts are still in position. Unfortunately this failure means that I may have to endure another visit to Skirlington car boot sale on my next trip to Bridlington – possibly equipped with a spade but without canine support.

Parked in the gateway and set off up the field edge in my wellies through the sodden ground. I'd got about half way along the fence when the farmer pulled up behind my car and gesticulated to me to – well I suppose he meant get off my land. I wasn’t turning back without completing the mission – may as well be burnt as scalded. Made a quick dash to log the pillar then returned for my punishment. By this time my accomplice Heather was placating him – and making a very good job – when I got back they were discussing family history. Apparently he was concerned about badger baiters, metal thieves and metal detectorists but not loony old trigpointers. All was well and we had a laugh with him for some time. It would be best to get his permission to visit from the farm opposite – he must aware of visitors and have a good view of the field and parking spot. The field is planted right up to the hedge and fence so you can’t get to the pillar without trampling the crop.

My first log using the andriod app. A difficult bog trot up from Eller Beck after heavy rain last night…. Well it seems to have worked and given a good gps location. The walk up looking for the path beside Little Eller Beck was very boggy and I had to stay on the Fylingdales boundary fence until I could cross Eller Beck on a concrete bridge at SE8697 98071. It would have been much easier to have taken the permissive path though the Fylingdales site and then onto the hard track on Lilla Rig.

Well it was either another day sitting in the sun or getting out for a bit of trigpointing. I’d got a list of 11 that I’d not logged above Ashbourne. Hawks Low was the second – I’d driven by Reynards – farmers were making hay in the field near the pillar and using farm machinery on the single track road so I gave it a miss. Parked in the layby on the A515 (53.06.37 1.45.24) and negotiated the stone walls and barbed wire to the pillar. Don’t think you can get there without jumping at least two obstacles. Good but unspectacular views on a clear day.

The last of four trigpoints on a long trip north with CURRYSCRIM. Must be one of the most difficult pillars in the Peak District – certainly by our route from Dove Stone Reservoir straight up through the woods from Hey Top. No paths up here through the near vertical heather by the broken wall. The weather had been great all day put it started to rain as we approached the trigpoint and shelter. Not wanting to return down the now wet route through the heather we continued along the ridge towards Wemberry Stones expecting to find a path back down to the car park. A lady with local knowledge said there was no easy route down and advised us to walk onto Chew reservoir and back down the track. This route is about 5 miles from the trigpoint to the car park. We ignored this advice and headed down the steep gully to the west of Wemberry Stones. This nearly required a call to the air ambulance. It was still raining and I slipped on the wet rock – luckily I just ended up with deep grazes on the arm and thigh and ripped trousers. Try a different approach – possibly up from White Lee as suggested by Bridgeman. A great trigpoint but not seen at its best due to the rain.

This is my second attempt at this one. Parked in Skirlington car boot market and headed for the verge carrying the trigpointing spade. This must be the biggest car boot in the country and the road had a stationary line of traffic queuing to enter the site so my digging caused some amusement – a chap in a pickup truck shouted some comment about not finding anything there – I said I was after worms – he was the quite helpful suggesting I tried further along the road where there was some damp ground. I did find worms but no sign of the surface block even though I had copies of the photos from the logs with me. The verge seems to have been disturbed with what appears to be loose tarmac below turf. Good luck if you try to find it – you may need measurement from the sketch map.

Found this very challenging (ok I made a complete cock up of it). Read all the logs and headed for the reservoir gates at the top of Gratton Road – the gate now has barbed wire and is very near to the houses so I took heed of the Private sign – then I looked for the path at the top of Birchgate – having no success there I looked at the top of every street off Brookhouse Lane again without success – I finally went right to the top of the lane and parked above the dog kennels – this was in an attempt to walk back along the paths from the east nearly a mile away. Most of the paths were water logged and I nearly lost my wellies. The trigpoint is in the same field as the path with no wire to negotiate. Just for fun I decided to continue on the path to find out where it came out. No wonder I couldn’t find it – the gate is between Birchgate and Gladwyn Street at the back of the houses (SJ91323 47628) – it comes out onto Eaves lane only about 100 yard from the A52 (see photo). It would be best to park in Gladwyn Street and access the path opposite Dickens Street. Looking at the logs again I see that this is exactly as other had said. Anyway good views from up there – even an aircraft parked at a school below. Didn’t fancy going back through the bogs so I had to walk along the road in wellies and filthy trousers. I was going to do a couple more trigpoints but decided enough was enough.

Decided to put my gaiters on after my boots had filled with snow. Very hard going – no footprints to follow – had to be very careful streams were covered and it was easy to sink deep into boggy ground. Great 360 deg views from the trigpoint with some blue sky and little wind. Continued on the suggested route along Hob Tor, Short Edge and Combs Edge.

Spent about half an hour up here prodding about without success. I couldn’t find any details or a sketch on the OS site this would have been a great help. The location is at the top of a steep wooded bank with rock outcrops – a quiet spot for a bit of digging. I climbed up from Old Mill Lane to the south west at SE279200 a good parking spot on a single track road – a wide track runs half way up the bank from public footpath at the north west and another track runs below the stone wall at the top over the location. My satmap said I was right on top of the block but prodding and digging with a trowel produced only false hits. The bank has fallen away nearby and I thought it was possible that the construction might have fallen down the bank – a quick search at the bottom of the adjacent outcrop revealed nothing. Things will be much more difficult up here when the bracken has grown. Good luck if you have a try – take some serious gardening equipment.

The log from my first visit on 10th March was as follows - I was passing on the M1 so I thought I’d take a look – surely it couldn’t be that difficult – I’ve jumped plenty of barbed wire and trampled on lots of private land. I walked up the path to the west – the site is surrounded by an inner steel fence and an outer wire fence with barbed wire both nine feet high – in between is a cleared track with a power distribution system. The perimeter is watched by cctv masts, floodlights and danger 33000 volt signs. It would be easier to break into Fort Knox. I left in awe of the trigpointing masters and determined to improve my fence jumping skills. I had success on my second visit 18th March after guidance from the masters. It’s a tight squeeze with lots of thorns and saplings to negotiate. Since this was a particularly challenging trigpoint I will celebrate by including a photo of my special birthday cake from the previous day.

Walked from Longnor over Parkhouse and Chrome Hills. I’d seen these hills when I visited Hollinsclough Moor and Axe Edge last week. I thought I knew the Peak District but they were new to me – I looked at the maps and couldn’t see any footpaths but they were open access so I put them into a route with Hind Low and High Wheeldon. I was very impressed – they certainly are the Peak Districts answer to Striding Edge. They are both very steep with a bit of exposure and scrambling (well for me). I was a great spring day but the conditions were very slippery in places I’d fallen over twice in the first 15 minutes – the ground was hard with frost with a covering of thawed mud. Anything good to say about Hind Low – good views looking away from the quarry. Nearest position SK0809368944 within 52ft.

Walked over from Axe Edge and Grinlow Tower. Spent several days working up here in the 70s but things have changed since then. Had some difficulty finding the public footpath on the disused railway and was approached by the security guard from the Health and Safety Labs at one point. The path is in a cutting at the entrance to the labs and there is no way down. Access to the path is behind the Derby University building (Derby Tech in my day) as the road turns right at the top of the hill. Only a distant view from the tarmac road on the old track.

My parents used to have a caravan in the 60s somewhere round here that they came to at weekends in the summer – everything seems to have been smartened up since then and I can’t remember the tower. The tower was surrounded by a school party who were taking turns to climb the top so I had to wait about twenty minutes before I could view the bolt. Continued onto the active station Buxton.

Ferocious wind today at the trigpoint – I’d been on Hograh Moor earlier and on Loose Howe yesterday in gale force conditions but it was worse up here. Great views to the sea and Middlesborough. Returned the same way – took just about 60 minutes.

So this is Christmas. Walked from Ainthorpe via Danby Moor trigpoint. Ferocious Head Winds made walking very difficult – nearly turned back but the thought of easy conditions on the way back kept me going. Left the road at NZ69996 01913 (you could park here) looking for the tracks shown on the map going south to near the trigpoint – 4x4 tracks were visible in places but not much use – lots of heather and bogs to wade through. Great views – Roseberry Topping, Freeborough Hill and the Boullby Mine chimney on the coast. Returned to Ainthorpe on the east side of Danby Dale. A great 10 mile walk on Christmas Day – I didn’t see another sole and only two cars. Had a Cornish pasty for Christmas dinner – finished the festivities with a pint of Daleside Bitter in The Duke of York Danby – lovely.

As tigger4242 says there was no sign of the bolt but it looked like someone had dug a deep hole looking. I probed further away and struck gold – took about twenty minutes. I filled the false trail and left the bolt uncovered. Good views from here – just wonder what the passing 4x4’s thought of a chap digging in the snow covered verge.

Not been this way since 1961 – I know that makes me an old git – some would even say a miserable old git. I was on a walking holiday hostelling with my first girlfriend – we started at Ross on Wye then Lynoshall, Clun and Newtown. We passed through The Bog and The Stiperstones on the way to Wilderhope Manor – all with a Bartholomew’s half inch map no gps and no mobile phones – how did we manage? You may ask – where is she now – well she went off to Liverpool University and joined the intelligentsia – I stayed home completing my apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce in Derby and joined the prolateriate. Perhaps this is what’s made me morose – or is it engineering that does this? Don’t think my route would have taken me to the trigpoint on the first occasion. Walking this time with CURRYSCRIM – he’s not so old and not so miserable – in fact quite cheerful – especially when he’s sampled the good ale in The Bridges pub. The pub formally called The Horseshoe is now owned by The Three Tuns Brewery and renamed The Bridges. Walked over to The Stiperstones from Betchcott Hill.

Walked up the railway past the strange sheep/goats and over the gate then another gate and a fence at the top of the field. Took the advice of pjr and proceeded back to Stowe by Chartley up the old railway – very difficult in places. Finally got up the embankment on the north side and got a great view of Chartley Castle – didn’t even know it exited. Continued back along a farm track close to the railway – much easier.

Parked at Levisham Station and walked up the path past Rygate Slack and Middle Farm then onto the Stape road, continued on the paths to the west to Leaf Howe House and past the burial mound at Leaf Howe. These marked paths through the woods were very difficult with blown down trees and wet ground. I arrived at the trigpoint via the marked tumulus on the clear fire break heading northwest. For the return I took the paths heading west and south west towards the road near Hill Top Farm. This is a much easier way to get to the trigpoint, the paths being clear and through felled forestry. Stape has plenty of easy parking near the village hall. Don’t go on the path at SE78252 94278 this is virtually impassable head for the path at SE78403 94543 if approaching from Stape. My route back to Levisham was via Middle Farm and Rain Dale. This is a difficult trigpoint to get to, I make it at least a mile from a made up road, but you could drive to High Muffles as suggested by Brisey. During my approach through the forest I could hear hounds barking in all directions I thought I was about to be run down by a baying pack but later I saw isolated hounds not at all interested in a solitary walker. A very interesting days walking, the trigpoint has no views but the two burial mounds and the deserted cottage of Low Leaf Howe are worth a visit.

The third trigpoint on a walk from The Cross Inn. Surprised that Milk Hill has not had more logs – this seems to be the first log since Sep 2008 by my mate CURRYSKRIM – the chap who got me started on this lark. Perhaps it’s the cement works and quarries that put folks off. The area has some new paths not shown on the map leading to an adjacent site with permissive access (see photo) I came down from Weaver Hill along the valley leading from Huddale – a lovely secluded dale that reminded me of the dry valleys in the York Wolds. I climbed out of the dale into the field that contains the trigpoint and came back down to the cement works down an interesting ancient track between stone walls and hedges through the site of permissive access. This track runs north from the point where the Weaver Trail meets the wood. What a surreal experience to leave Milk Hill with a megalithic burial mount and pass the towering cement works. Anyone visiting this trigpoint could park in the cement works fish ponds carpark at SK0824149440 and walk from the corner along the Weaver Trail until it meets the wood then go north up the old track then on the path up the hill through the permissive access site. Make sure that you have a look up the dale to Huddale and call in at the Yew Tree Inn at Cauldon a fantastic old pub full of old antiques and curiosities – pity it wasn’t open when I passed by.

Make sure you have a look at the Hoften’s Cross megalith in the field across the road from the pub.

Part of a walk from Duffield taking in Drum Hill and Sunny Hill. I wasn’t planning to go to Chevin Hill but as I checked my route I saw that it wasn’t too far away up North Lane. Only yards away from one of the tees on the golf course. Doubled back on my tracks down North Lane then across the golf course back along the Midshires Way to Duffield.

The second trigpoint on a walk from Duffield. After Drum Hill I dropped down to Mackeney - came out down some stone steps and the Holly Bush was straight in front of me – what a treat – a pint of Exmoor Gold and a pork pie – highly recommended a fantastic old pub. The trigpoint has good views back over Belber and Strutts Mill with Crich Stand on the skyline. Tried to get Crich on my photo. Went onto Chevin Hill.

Called here on the way back from Money Hill – parked on Coal Lane and walked on the path south along part of the National Forest – Climbed the fence in the corner and then north west along a line of building rubble – the trigpoint is nicely situated under beech trees but a further pile of bonfire wood and more rubbish litters the site. There are fantastic views over Hartshorne south Derbyshire and towards Derby. This is the beauty of Trigpointing to me – I lived only a few miles away in my teens and know the area very well but I had never been to the trigpoint and was amazed by the views over very familiar countryside.

Followed in the steps of others. Parked on the A51 and walked up the bridal path – turned through the old quarry on the left just after the dip – headed towards the left of the tower after some serious barbed wire followed the hedge with the tower on my right – then over more barbed wire into the quarry – approached the trigpoint with the tower and the fence on my right. Although not in its original position and relocated it seems secure close to the transmission tower boundary. Nobody about on Sunday morning after the New Year. Returned down the tower access road and along Knox’s Grave Lane. The route up the tower access road would be a much easier way to get to the trigpoint but there may be problems getting up the private quarry road when they are working.

I’d been stuck in Grosmont due to heavy snow and bad road conditions and was expecting to be there some time - then on Thursday there was a slight thaw and the steep hill out of the village was ploughed and gritted. I got out up the Esk valley road but the road to Pickering was closed due to heavy snowfall. This forced me to return south on the A171 to the north of the moors. My satnav sent me down the A173 and I recognised Roseberry Topping snow covered and glistening under a blue sky. This was an opportunity not to be missed – I could also see the trigpoint. I parked in a layby and walked through the woods to the south – the paths were icy but conditions were not too bad till near the top. Fantastic views over the snow covered moors and over to Teeside. I came down the steep north face through deep soft snow – a great morning out.
