As suggested below I approached up the lane, kept to the left of the enclosed area and up to the mast. Around the mast to the wooded area with barbed wire fence. Just a few yards to the left the trig can just be seen through the fence partially hidden in shrubbery and trees. You need to stride over the fence into the jungle to get a view of the flush bracket. Small hawthorns, brambles and nettles are trying to stop you. Not a place to wear shorts!

Approached from Temple Newsam via the golf course and was surprised having looked at previous photos here to find the situation completely different. The horses have given way to horse power, there is hardly any grass, and the field is a racetrack for dirt bikes. It was a warm, dry day and there were clouds of dust as the bikes went round and round the field. The locals (or bandits?) were still friendly. I chatted to a couple of the bikers who thought the trig was possibly where somebody was buried years ago. I briefly explained what it was but I think they still regarded it as a bike rest. The damage on top was useful to rest your handlebars on. Not a place to spend your Sunday afternoons unless your a biker.

This must be the trickiest one I have visited yet. The combination of brambles, nettles, hawthorn etc made it a battle and visibilty was negligible. I am covered in scratches, there is blood everywhere but I will not be beaten. As previous logs suggest it was very foolish to come here in August. I think it is becoming more overgrown every year. I do think that it is best to approach from the A650, you can park in a layby not far to the west between the roundabout and the road bridge.

Thanks to Rod and ted for this one. Its just a field and sadly not only is there no trig there is also no sign of the block mentioned on bench-marks.org.uk. Views are great, the nearby trig sites of Manshead End, Rishworth Moor and Wholestone Moor are well visible so I guess it was an obvious place for a trig.

Nice big brass bolt. The 1984 OS South Pennines map seems to be the only one showing a trig type triangle here. It doesn't have a height shown which usually suggests there is no actual trig pillar. I included this point in the South Pennine 39 Trigs challenge some years ago which included all the trigs shown on the 1984 map (only 31 of the triangles are actually trig pillars). I guess this bolt must be an OS mapping point as it has the bench mark style arrow engraved on it and looks like others I have seen on this website. It can be found about a mile north of the White House pub just off the track across Chelburn Moor which takes the Pennine Way north towards Stoodley Pike. There has been some kind of concrete structure here which has mostly gone now. The only things remaining are flat slabs of concrete near the catchment drain and what appear to be the bases of three concrete pillars with the steel reinforcement sticking out of the top. These can be seen from the track up to your right after the rocky outcrop just before the track bends to the right to run alongside Light Hazzles Reservoir. These reservoirs now supply drinking water but were built to supply the Rochdale Canal in the valley below. I was there fairly late in the afternoon and the light was poor so my photos are not brilliant. ADDED 02-01-07: Now we have access to all the OS Trigs & BMs I now know this is a genuine OS bolt and its Station Number is T085.

This is a very different place now the trees all around the trig have been felled. The views all around have re-appeared.

I approached the same way as ianmac & mickandshane (on my first attempt a couple of months ago I also went to the right) up the drive then keep left across the grass into the rough area. There are some tracks as if its being cleared. If you come this way take the right hand track climbing up a few feet and you will see houses in front of you as you face approx SE, as you face the RH end house the trig is under a tree and covered in brambles just to your right. I was approached by the man who lives in this house who was very pleasant, I told him why I was there and he pointed out where the trig was, as even though I was only 10 feet away I couldn't see it. He told me he had no idea who owned this bit of land. I had parked just off Bradford Road east of the big roundabout where you can turn off south into the residential area and there on the grass area is the Memorial to the crashed Halifax bomber mentioned by mickandshane below. Anyway this is definitely one the trickiest trigs I have found so far!!

Everything dal says is right. I'm a local and all the maps I have except one (Landranger 1984) shows a triangle at the site going right back to 1843. However none show a blue triangle so when they changed trigs to blue Stoodley stayed black so perhaps the OS didn't regard it as a trig. I guess the monument was used at some time as a surveying point. It is similar to Wainman's Pinnacle between Keighley and Skipton (see ted's comments in the Gib entry). I have been visiting Stoodley Pike since I was a child on family walks and more recently as a fell runner. It is a popular check point on various races and long distance walks. The Pike has a fascinating history but no room for that here. Since I became an internet trig bagger I have kept studying the Pike for signs of OS use. I thought at least it might have a cut bench mark but no luck so far. I will continue to visit as it is a regular point on my training ground. I have logged it as definitely missing but I'm open to suggestions.

I would have struggled here without the OS sketch. Well hidden in the grass only a short distance from the bridge. Very scenic old bridge and waterfalls here. I had a quick look for the Aux 1 Bernsten which looked like it should be in the car park but couldn't see it. Ran out of time as apparently family holidays are more important than trig hunting?? What??

Without question the most difficult I have ever tried to find. Got it on my second visit in two days. The gorse is well over 6 feet high in places and I lost a fair amount of blood fighting through it. I eventually discovered the trig is more easily accessed from the North side. I approached from the road to the South across the field following the wall to the South West side of the trig, across the bridge then slightly to the right and diagonally over the rise to the pond (more like a swamp when I was there) then East a bit and approach the trig from the North. Sounds easy eh?? Only discovered later this is pretty much the same as Clochandighter's route.

Ianmac is right, it is a long way along the track. I thought I must have missed it. As Allymac I also spoke to the farmer at Hilton of Delnies farm who I saw by chance, he was very pleasant and amenable although the track past his farm is part of a local walk so is possibly a right of way, there are arrows to show the way. At 4 metres above sea level it is certainly the lowest one I have ever been to. It is a strange and lonely place.

I was having doubts on the final rise that there may be nothing on the summit and my first 'first' would be a failure. Then I saw it standing there just as I had hoped, and in excellent condition. Its a lonely tract of grouse moorland with views up to Hadrian's Wall area. Altogether an enjoyable early morning run. Note added 05-09-06: If anyone is puzzled by my reference to my first 'first' its because I was the first to log this trig on this website.

He was a very friendly man called Brian Skinner who was interested in what we do although he likened it to train spotting! I explained what I wanted to do and he allowed me to just get on with it.

Instead follow Back Lane northwards then turn sharp left down Stephenson Road to the first house. This is Greenland Farm, the home of Mr and Mrs Pickles. They are happy to allow people to go into their field and see the surface block. All they ask is you call at the house and get their permission before going into the field which is where they keep their horse. I chatted with Mrs Pickles for quite a while and explained what trigpointing was. She was concerned that someone else had been to the block before me this morning without asking permission (it did make it easier for me to find it as the grass was cleared away). Otherwise she was lovely and didn't treat me like a geek with a wierd hobby!

I have given 10 points for the fantastic 360 degree scenic views. It was the first Trig I ever saw as a child over 45 years ago and have made it my first to be logged here. Also I can see it from my house!

Very fleeting visit as the high point of the International Snowdon Race. Its a busy place today with train loads of tourists plus 354 fell runners. Can't stop, must get down to the finish at Llanberis.
