Well the trig's ok but the moor from Whetstone Gate to the pillar has been trashed, even some of the flags have been moved.

There must be places where landowners let you desecrate moorland legally but some scumbags just don't give a sh*t! Latest of innumerable visits, and sadly the most depressing.

Latest of many re-visits, this time I came across from Long Ridge End along a fairly muddy path (despite the recent dry weather) and returned along Crawshaw Moss, the Buck Stones to Whetstone Gate (and ultimately Ilkley). The main thing of note is the real deterioration of the path from Crawshaw Moss to Whetstone Gate. The route across NW Crawshaw Moss was flagged a few years ago but the rest of the route to/from the Buck Stones has been trashed by mountain bikers - it's a morass of mush and god help it when the wet season comes!! A remarkable achievement by the parasites of the 'outdoor community'! The route following the wall from the Buck Stones to Whetstones Gate is reasonably traversable but requires detouring from the wall (north side) in many places due to severe erosion. Other than the usual wonderful view from the trig point it was all a bit depressing really. A pox on all mountain bikers on footpaths!

No longer a trespass as it's been on Access Land for a few years now. We parked up at Thornton Rust in the (alleged) parking area - an area of rough ground that was full of hay bales and that might just have squeaked in another car today. Took the bridleway towards Carpley Green that was stoney until it reached the open moor whereafter it was very muddy. Wayposting & ladder stiles (see map) made accessing the trig site easy enough from a route point of view but it is a bit of a slog up the final steep hill section to the hill plateau. Weather and visibility today was poor. On the accompanying map image ........................ A = parking point at Thornton Rusk / B = Wayposted 'Permissive Path' and stile over wall / C = Wayposted 'Permissive Path' to Addleborough summit / D = Stile in wall, immediately beyond which is the 'replacement' trig / E = Stile over wall @ SD947880 as noted by Caroleengel / X = The trig pillar site. Individual trig pillar (see RogerTempleman's log) destroyed by an act of shortsighted vandalism by the National Park Authority and the National Trust. It really beggars belief that someone thought that people would make the effort to climb this hill and not visit the summit regardless of whether the trig pillar was there or not. Why would you stop at the cairn (the 'replacement trig') when your view is impaired by the wall immediately to the east? The natural viewpoint is from the hill summit i.e. where the trig pillar was. As for the cup and whatever marked stone/rock ................ well, I suppose someone must love (or indeed 'see') it but it's passed me by.

Wood hides all views although a few yards to the south there's a decent view of rural scenery. Visted at dusk and photo's not up to much.

No 3 of the day and the walk along Birley Edge from the trig at Top End was fabulous and as such I give it a high score. Extensive views over both the rural and urban landscape, well recommended. Of course once you get to the trig all that joy evaporates. Used, abused and probably terminally ill. Theres a development of some sort going on directly behind the trig and the trig would appear to have been initially fenced in as part of that, however the fencing has been blown/pushed down and there doesnt appear to have been too much recent development (this could of course be due to the late April Bank Holidays in 2011).

As previously noted the (rather nice) cairn is certainly big enough to envelop a standard trig pillar. I noted peregrinus entry but until convinced otherwise I took the statement - This Former Trig Point etc - to imply the pillar has been removed & replaced by the cairn. However, I found the following website: - giving us the following information --- The viewpoint cairn is the original trig point which has been eclosed with hewn stone and has a decorative and informative plaque affixed to it --- , no explanations but in all likelyhood due to damage (otherwise why?) and as such I now agree with peregrinus.

This ones been on my radar for a while now but Id noted the H2O problems (thanks) so it was either going to be a long dry spell or frost/snow visit. It turned out to be the latter as a severe overnight frost gave me the opportunity to come up from Appleby Rail Station. I dread to think what the bridleway is like when its warmer as it was bad enough today. Wellies would be far more appropriate than boots. You might think that the short distance along the bridleway from the north might be a better option, not really as today it was a sea of ice which was at least traversable (with care) but once melted, bring your waders! The field has a new waist high fence thats barbed wired across the top making access more of a hassle, however there is one small section that is wooden fenced (photo to come) where access is easier. Its a small hill with a big view, especially to the north. NCoF!

5 years since I first visited this trig and access is little different. The access from Ouchthorpe Lane is now impossible as the gate has been replaced by a high fence. My comments about the Leeds Country Way in 2005 are now erroneous as the LCW was re-aligned in 2006 and does not officially pass this way. The ROW from the A61 to/from Ouchthorpe Lane is, of course, still there and from this ROW a faint path from the west at approx SE33330 22660 gives access through the scrub towards the trig to meet an area of obviously gardened grassland. From this theres a 100 yard walk to reach the trig.

This scores over highly simply due to the fact that the developer, Seddon Homes, has actually had the courage and decency to retain the trig. It has been re-sited and no longer sits on the top of the hill. It has also been reversed as the flush bracket is now facing the opposite way to its original position. Its now on a slope, a little way from its original position but with free access to all. A job well done by Seddon Homes in my opinion - will look good once the vegetation grows. All the homes are currently empty. I do wonder what the residents will think of future trig tiggers! Incidentally access via the road opposite the White Bear pub (see my previous log & photo) is no longer an option as its fenced off at the entrance and a tall wooden fence further up the hill encloses the new housing from this side (see photo attached to this entry). Im on foot but parking in the old entrance (rather than the bus stop) might be an option as by walking up the footpath beyond the bus stop (see photo) just around the corner on the right a waymarked Public Footpath gives access to the entrance to the estate. The other option is to access it from the A650, Wakefield side of the Tingley gyratory, currently well signposted as the houses are up for viewing/sale.

I thought Id done all the West Yorkshire trigs until I found this sitting in the USER ADDED section. I was hopeful the Berntsen wouldnt be too difficult given the photos available and that referencing it from the graffitti on the wall would be a doddle. Well the graffitti has now gone. So next option was to reference the top bricks on the wall, that didnt work as many have been removed. Finally found the light coloured bricks in the bottom of John Rileys photo and worked from that. Not a good time to visit as vegetation very dense, poked about with my pole and eventually found it under a grass sod and with a beer can sitting in the open cavity. Didnt find the surface block, tried poking with a trowel hoping to hit the brick but with no success. Best bet is to visit after a lot of rain with a spade and maybe a metal rod to poke into the ground to locate the brick (something like an old fashioned fishing rod rest). Grid reference not really accurate as this locates it on the north side of the road when its actually on the south side, more like SE 22600 27467. Passable urban view to the south. NCOF!

I didnt fancy my chances crossing both lanes of the A1(M) so had to detour via Darrington. Where the minor road passes under the flyover a footpath immediately on the right follows the motorway up towards Spitalgap Lane (when it reaches the ROW heading west you can follow the - permissive path - that runs along the eastern edge of the field the trig might have been in). If you come from the west you cant drive a car down Spitalgap Lane - bike (push or motor) will do the job, but again its a dead end when you reach the motorway.

Its a re-visit but seeing the recent photos, there are some things you just have to do. Towards the back end of a 12 mile walk I purposely detoured to this trig to give it a bit of TLC. It now resembles something like its prime, I hope it lasts (but I doubt it). I apologise for not being able to coat the rear of the pillar (the wall side) as the paint ran out. Note for anyone else considering such action, I reckon you need at least half a litre of paint to generously cover a standard trig (not including any plynth it might be sat on)

My second entry for this mountain - Ive visited the trig several times before via the Mountain Railway but always felt it was a bit of a plastic. Today I got the Electric Railway to Laxey, legged it to the shore - where the tide was fully out - dipped my toe in the sea and footed it up to the summit. The route to the old mines is simple enough if not the best underfoot. From the mines to Bungalow is an obvious track that has been used by off road moto bikes at some point. Today it was extremely wet (day before was persistant heavy rain) and very boggy in places. Windy as hell at the trig (in all but 1 of our visits its been just so). Generally, any photo you take wont do justice to the view the eye can see. NC(or railway)OF!

Access is actually quite easy if you know the best way to attack it. Dont bother with the approach from the west through the wood (as I did and made hard work for myself). Just follow the directions from the section of map Ive uploaded. At the roundabout a blue sign indicates the location of a skateboard/bmx park (odd site!). Follow the road, which turns to track uphill to pass the skateboard park and reach a tall metal gate in a the fence. Through the gate & the trig is immediately sat on the right between the fence and the wood. NCOF, dont know if you can park on the road to the skateboard park but the nearby B&Q/ASDA would be an option, youd have to use the things on the bottom posterior to walk about 1/2 a mile though (uphill for a bit as well - strewth!!!!)

I had a late morning change of plan and chose to tig this pillar & nearby Hicknor Hill without being able to consult this website. I opted to approach through the railway embankment as I couldnt see the trig from the school field perimiter (which has an 8ft high fence). The embankment fence is climbable but what a fiasco. If you come this way come in jeans - I was in shorts and you honestly dont want to see the state of my legs! The brambles are everywhere. Come prepared with gloves and secaturs and make your life easier. Because of the brambles I couldnt physically tig the trig but settled for a poke with a long branch.

Passable view of mainly arable land. You cant see the trig from the clifftop footpath but there are two stiles you could use. Both are from the cliff top path, the first is pretty much directly south of the trig so youd need to cross the field uphill. The second (recommended) is where the clifftop path descends to cross the road at St Lawrence Chute, there are steps leading up/down to the road and at the top of the steps is a stile. Follow the field edge to reach the trig. At the time of this visit the trig was pretty buried in vegetation and the field had recently been ploughed.

Yorkshirenige has it spot on or see my original entry. Today was winter wonderland on a bright sunny day with everywhere under snow.

Started on foot from Lancaster railway station and intended to take the estuary road that passes the Golden Ball pub, unfortunatley it was high tide and the road was impassable just before Lythe Bridge. So a detour along the A683 was needed and not to be recommended really. Its only a mile but the traffic was phenomenal. Once off the A683 the minor road to Overton was far busier then I expected. Trigs easy enough to find with good views across the estuary/salt marshes and to Clougha although quite overcast today. Fortunately, on my return, by the time the Id visited the trig the road passing the pub was now available as the tide had relented somewhat.

Couldnt get to it today, the previous remarks about - gap in the wall - are less relevent as its been partialy fixed. Immediately east of the trig the wall has had some attention and wooden pallates block entry. Its would be easy enough to climb the pallates and jump the wall but there is a barbed wire fence approx 1 foot from the wall which you would need to clear and on todays visit you would land in a sea of very wet and deep mud. You then have the problem of getting back over the barbed wire & the wall. Contrary to my OS map which shows 2 adjacent fields to the north before the road reaches Newlands Road the actuality is that the field immediately north of the trig field has been merged with the field the trig is in. In the NE corner, adjacent the road is a locked gate which will give easier access to the trig. Which it would have today if it hadnt been yet another sea of wet deep mud. I recommend visiting in a less rainy season (or when the grounds frozen).

From the N or NW its on access land now so you can just clomp away across the moor if thats your thing - youll need to climb the wall if you dont use the ROW. From the ROW to the NW you will reach the wall towards the NW end of Ash Fell Edge. Do not go through the metal gate straight ahead, immediately before it a gateway on the left (no gate there today) gives access to the moor. Go through & follow the track as it heads briefly diagonally left before veering right to follow the wall approx 50 yards on your right (its much easier than following the wall, something I initially attempted). It eventually turns into a sheep trail and runs adjacent the wall shortly before reaching the trig. I intially made the mistake of going through the metal gate on the ROW & following the wall with it on my left and whilst the short, stubby pillars (not marked on my 2002 OS map) are interesting I had to back-track 3/4 of a mile to get to the other side of the wall (as ted says its marked as an electic fence too when you pass through the metal gate on the ROW - so traverse at your own risk).

The track as shown on the OS map leading most of the way to the trig was non-existant today, other than an initial obvious few feet, forget it. Its heather or water. Additionally the ROW across Langwith Ridge is not evident (or waymarked) either.

Bit of a mistake really as whilst its short in length its a bit of a cr*ppy plod. With hindsight I should have continued up the road and taken Garys (Sykesfamily) advice and followed the wall with it being on my left. After the tig I followed the wall along a faint path/sheep trail which was fine, to rejoin the track en-route to Sandy Hill - so if you come from that direction theres OK access.

Came over from Burn Moor trig simply following the fence and wall. No track or footpath from Burn Moor trig until reaching Ravens Castle but the odd sheep trail on either side of the fence (which is easy to stradle) helps but be prepared for bog and add about a 3rd in distance to circumnavigate such. From Ravens Castle a 4x4/quad bike track leads to within spitting distance of the trig. Very hazy today but the 3 peaks were visible. Nice setting at the end of the crag. No cars - on foot!

Started in Bentham and came up the minor road that leads to Slaidburn. Dont follow the fence from Great Stone of Fourstone as its an absolute bog. As Sigina nivilis says the best route up/down is via the track leading to and beyond the shooting box - the latter isnt shown on the map but it heads SE steadily uphill to the trig. Very hazy today but on a good day there would be excellent views in all directions. Headed off to Crutchenber Fell after this. Train to Bentham - no cars - on foot!

There are routes to this trig from every point of the compass. It was a lousy day on our visit with persistant heavy rain and hardly a soul about. The rain abated a little upon reaching the trig and we got a view of sorts, just a glimpse of how good it may be when the suns out. I think this pillar is in good condition, spoilt only by the graffiti. See the earlier photos by Clochandlighter on 20/04/2003 to see how bad it was before the repair. Revisited on 23/03/2010 with daughter in much better conditions so Ive upped the score a couple of points. As good a city scape view as youre ever going to get. The vandalism & graffiti I just dont understand, whichever way you come from youve got to make at least some effort to get to this trig, so the spray painting and physical damage would seem to be pre-meditated, why on earth would someone undertake this, and surely given its popularity you would have to time your assault on it quite carefully as otherwise surely the other visitors would give you grief?

Took the path through a gate just NE of Noonsun Hill that looks to be heading nowhere (there are 2, I took the more NE one) and followed a trail taking me uphill through fields just south of Greave. Once over the final fence (at a wood boarded section) and on to the open moor the path is obvious as it rises to the trig. Trig on a small plateau but view a few yards away from it are terrific. I continued along Wimberry Moss along a very obvious path to Chew Res, did a tour of Dovestone Res and finally visited the War Memorial on Board Hill before returning to the railway station. Absolutely lovely area in todays good weather. I wonder why any of the footpaths aren't shown on the OS maps, they're very evident (I do know they're not ROW's). No cars, on foot.

Approached from the Widdop Road via the ROW at Rapes Clough, as The Hungry Caterpillars say the OS mapping is inaccurate. The ROW forks approx 1/2 mile from the road however there is no path veering NW to the field corner (as indicated on the map). The path heading SW appears to lose a lot of height with a hefty re-climb needed. The options are - where the ROW 'forks' on the map is a broken wall, walk a further 25 yards of so to reach the crest of the rise - directly ahead you can see a field wall with a 'gate' - the trig is 50 yards behind that - you can A): Hoik straight across the open moor to the gate - wouldn't recommend it myself, you'll know why when you view it. B): Head across the open moor in a NW direction aiming for the stile in the field corner (which you can't see at this point) - wouldn't recommend that either or C): return to the broken wall and follow it north, on it's eastern side, along a sheep trail to reach the full wall south of Reive Edge, turn left (west) and follow the wall along more sheep trails to reach the stile in the field corner slighly NE of the trig - it's boggy in places but it's much better than the open moor. The field the trig is in is easy enough to traverse. After all that waffle, it wasn't a good day weather wise - visibility was poor but it was a good hike up from (and returning to) Hebden Bridge.

From the Malham Tarn area 2 bridleways pass east and west of this trig site en route to Arncliffe and its an easy enough route to utilise both. Came up from the east and once leaving the bridleway the area near the trig is riddled with shake holes, pot holes and old mine shafts so be careful. The circular plate is too neat to be a simple destruction job, I reckon OS have removed this for a reason, whatever that may be? Took the west route down via a visible path in the field to the SW from the west end of the summit. Good view to Great Whernside & Buckden Pike. Circular route from Settle.

All credit where it's due - it's a bit of slog up from Yockenthwaite, well done Charlie (and Gary). I came up from Buckden, following the river. At Yockenthwaite I headed up the bridleway that, today, was effectively a stream. The cloud was so low that I was walking in dense mist/rain and a howling face on wind all the way to the summit. The wall's good as it guides you to the trig, without it I wouldn't have bothered. 'Charlie spotted it from 400 yards', I spotted from about 40 feet!!

According to Memory Map the trig location is not in Pugney's Country Park but in the field directly to the north (marked private). See the screen dump that details the exact location, I've marked it with a flag. It's still missing mind. The field has an embankment but I doubt the trig stood on it, it somehow looks too recent to me & there's no evidence to show it was anywhere there. I reckon it was somewhere near where the small pond is now - not shown on the map. You can walk the embankment to reach the river Calder. Pic's to follow.

Done on a longish walk from/to Settle. Took the bridleway from Henside Road up to the first wall then turned north (ignoring the stile/gate) to follow the wall up to the field corner (after 200 yards you'll reach the grassy quad bike track that heads uphill following the wall). From a distance I could see the broken wall but getting nearer the electric fence was visible. The fence near the trig runs alongside the old wall heading both west & north. Fortunately there was enough of the old wall at the field corner to provide a platform (for anybody reasonabley agile) to climb & jump the fence. As this is now on access land I would have thought this should be a prime site to have a stile. The fence has one sign at this point saying it's electric but the fence carries on for miles across Fountains Fell with no other signage - is it stll live? If it's live is it legal if it's on Access Land? If it is live don't do the reverse of this initial assent, the fence is too high to jump from ground level unless you're confident with your Fosbury Flop. No cars, on foot!

The farm no longer exists, the only building left is the old derelict barn. It looks like somethings happening but I'm not sure what. There's a metal fenced route around the barn which leads to the adjacent house, cars were parked there and as this was a Sunday I'm thinking they're using it as a car park rather than park on the road. There was also a small JCB there too, for what reason who knows. Anyway, ignore this fenced route and follow it with it on your left, you'll reach a gate, climb and just head towards the sheds. In a few years we might not be able to see/touch it as the vegetation grows. There were nettles & I was in shorts but it's wasn't that bad today. Update!!

It's far easier to follow the track running alongside the grouse butts and head up to the moor top following the sheep trails as best you can, the trig is clearly visible from the last grouse butt. As John comments, if approaching from other directions you won't see the trig until you reach the crown of the hill.

Waymarking around this farm is non-existant. Possible access from the NW, just NE of Great Gib farm - where the gate is missing between walls you can climb the hill out of sight of the farm houses, you will need to climb a couple of walls (or do a detour to find the fallen sections) but access is possible.

The Mental Health Act (1983) springs to mind. Why would anyone with (allegedly) a full set of 'marbles' hike miles to 'visit' (A): a trig that's no longer there (I can just about understand that - you might get a view or evidence that it was once there) & (B): The ground that it sat on has disappeared some time since & the area is a fenced off Danger Area. I'll come quietly doctor, I don't know why but it just 'had to be done'. There's access from the north via a gate 100 yards to the right of the bridleway and whilst the area is fenced off with a multitude of warning signs, just beyond the gate is a step stile giving access to the quarry (strange?). The quarry's an eyesore but there's a decent view over Cracoe to the War Memorial & the Rylstone Cross. No cars. on foot.

Great day, great weather, great views but once off Knoutberry Haw very, very wet. Other than crossing/using the road I never saw another soul until visiting the Moorcock - absolute bliss.

Knoutberry Haw really, if anything it's South Baugh Fell! Absolute stonker of a day today. Beautiful views in every direction, the Howgills in particular looked stunning in the autumnal light. Circular hike from Garsdale railway station following an (unmarked) track running on the south side wall from Riggs. The track ends at Todd Crag where you need to follow a faint path on the other side of the wall. The morning had a hard frost today so underfoot was OK but in warmer weather it will be a bit of a bog. Route down via Ringing Keld Gutter was very moist but just as easy, simply follow the wall to reach Garsdale Foot (final field is fenced, not walled). Headed up to Aye Gill Pike before returning to Garsdale - a tough hike but definately one I'll be doing again. In a day of absolutely fantastic weather and with an act that should be refered to the court of human rights - I forgot the camera! No cars, on foot!

Tigged as an alternative to Meugher on today's outing (which includes New Pasture Edge trig - see log). It was actually just as misty up here with very poor visibility but given the walling it wasn't too difficult. Walked up the road from Theshfield that eventually turns into Malham Moor Road, here I turned right along the bridleway, upon reaching the first wall I turned left (noted the gate sign 'Beware Bull In Field' - such a comfort when visiblity is 50 - 100ft at best!). Followed the wall to eventually veer eastish and reach the narrow walled/fenced section that heads towards Kilnsey. At this point I scrambled over the wall and just sort of headed NE in what I thought was the right direction - couldn't see a thing (on a good day it's probably a piece of pi**). Got the trig - which is surrounded by a nice circle of stones - returned the way I came to follow the narrow track between wall/fence to eventually reach Mastiles Lane then Kilnsey and back to Grassington. Turned out to be a 19+ miler on a grotty day. Score is irrelevant today.

If approaching as I did from the ROW the building to the right that you can see the top chimneys of (as you rise the hill towards the trig) is an electricity sub-station and not a house.

From the Pennine Way to the north (just south of King Common on the OS map) an obvious path takes you pretty close to the trig and from the south (today's route) just follow the ROW to the east of Popples Farm and continue up the open moor to find the trig. Quite boggy on the top, even today in the sunshine.

Most recent of a number of visits, came today across from Silsden - the weather wasn't too bad today and visibility was reasonable so the photos show an inprovement from the visit on 05.02.2006. Further comments are from the March 2004 visit. ----- There's a fairly decent walk on Rombald's Moor if you just go high on the moor to avoid the 'plastics'. If you leave the trig and head towards the radio mast beware the bog that has been really compounded by the moronic mountain bikers.

Second visit in 12 months - remembered the camera this time. My 2005 & 1997 maps show it amongst the trees but as previously noted it's actually in open field. Good view across to Keighley although a line of trees in front may mar it if they grow much higher. I came up from Ilkley and jumped the wall/fence at West Buck Stones and although it isn't shown on the map, a path follows the wall by the woodland on your right all the way to the trig which you'll find just beyond where the woodland ends - you'll need to climb a wall on the way and a second one to gain access to the trig (you'll see where it's been done before).

Well, what can I say. This to me is a star. It was the first hill I climbed since taking up hiking 15 or so years ago and I (and my wife Sue) have visited - my mate - on countless occasions (before & since this entry) from every direction humanly possible (one day Ill just have to bump into John Riley). When I feel the need for the occasional fix Stoodley never disappoints because I love it no matter the weather. Trig or no trig its a wonderful location. Id add a hint to Johns comments that if you do a little research youll find its a monument to peace and not a war memorial! Nice photo from the balcomy entrance John. On todays visit we took a party of 6 Indian friends up from Walsden railway station to Hebden Bridge and we had the proverbial 4 seasons in a day weather - rain, hail, snow, brilliant sunshine, more snow & hail, more sunshine and a hail white out for about 10 minutes!!. It was an interesting experience to say the least. Would probably do the 8-ish mile trip in less than 3 hours - took 5 hours today!! The only downer today was having to boll**k a pillock on a mountain bike who couldnt read (its clearly marked from the direction it came from - No Bikes or Horses Beyond This Point - for riding (and eroding) the footpath. Latest visit on 11/04/2009 during a Todmorden Centenary Way hike and the bikers are really beginning to wreck so many footpaths in Calderdale I begin to despair!!

Very poor weather today with low cloud hanging on to the top of the moor making the mood even more depressing.

I doubt theres a view from the top as its surrounded by forrestation but a good rating for style! REVISITED 09/03/2008 and the change in the 2 years has been tremendous. The woodland around the trig has been zapped, it looks like something Saruman might have done to bits of Fangorn forest and the trig is very prominant now. You now get a good view to Menwith Hill & Armscliffe Crag, although west is still blocked by the trees. The ladder John mentions was not in evidence today. The path I used on both occassions - from the north, down from Little Armsclife, that was a small but dicsernable path approx 18 inches wide has now been utilised by the mountain bike brigade and is an absolute messy mush in places and 4 foot wide at times.

I eventually approached from the south along the ROW but there are several paths running across Catstones Moor and easily found the trig site. It's difficult to know why the trig's missing - the moor is heather, gorse & fern (all look well established) so no arable or livestock suitability - so why remove it - was the landowner planning to trash the moor in 1998? (see saginanivalis log). I can't think of a reason why! It's now on Access Land and a nice spot with good views in most directions. There's currently a large gap in the wall by the road 100 yards to the north west of the trig (looks like a car's hit it) giving easy access/egress.

Very well hidden amongst the gorse although there are the very faint makings of a path to it. I came up through the housing estate heading for the radio mast to find the gorse covered hillock. The trig is at the end nearest the radio mast. I'd agree with ted that it's anonimity amongst the gorse has inevitabley helped it's survival. Very little room to get a decent photo.

I don't know what the problem is here as the trig isn't actually on the works property as far as I can see - the field was full of cattle today so I'm guessing it belongs to the nearby farm. You don't have to approach through the new plantation (which I assume belongs to the works and hence the access troubles as detailed previously). Between Fearnley Farm and the plantation (get the right OS map) I simply found an easy point to climb the fence (might be less so in the summer), followed the field perimiter right, then left, to find the trig near the pylon, no problem. Weather awful so the photo's aren't too good. No cars, on foot!

First visited today at around 2.30 and logged the trig then from outside the fence - it's about 10ft inside the fence. Sat at home at 7pm and thought, well, being so close, not to attempt a real 'tig' would be a bit wimpish. Walked around the school perimiter twice and there is no alternative other than to climb the nearby gate but I have to say the fence top is VERY sharp and if you've got short legs (I'm 31 inside leg) I'd be very wary. Regardless of that, one slip over the fence and your sex life (or worse) could be gone - please be very careful. I personally would happily regard the trig being 'bagged' from outside the fence.

There is no direct access from the housing estate on the west, tall (6ft) fences have been built since Seasiders visit.

At this point you can clearly see the trig immediately ahead across the open field. Follow the Leeds Country Way by going left until reaching the tall (6ft) metal fence that surrounds the housing estate and turn right into the open field and follow the fence to reach the playing field and the trig. Alternatively, Ouchthorpe lane runs N/E of the trig. There's a wooden gate between the Hospital grounds and the housing estate which threatens prosecution/death/disease/poverty/impotence etc on entry - ignore it, jump the gate and follow the high fence (20ft or so high) on your left for 30 or so yards, turn left with the fence to see the trig 20 yards away, tig and return - I aint Linford Christie but it should take you no more than about 40 seconds!!

Not visible from the bridleway but after crossing the bridge over the old railway line turn immediately left through the metal gate and follow the field edge, at the corner youll find the trig (almost hidden behind the hawthorn bush). I had to roll under the barbed wire to physically tig the trig today. As John says theres little room to manoevre, theres a very steep drop to the old rly line. Good views to Ossett. Revisited 29/05/2006. And again 18/05/2009.

First climbed this in 1968 as a 13 year old on a weeks adventure break from Foxwood School, Leeds. The party came up from Horton got lost in the fog and the teacher was shi##ing himself until we stumbled upon the trig more by accident than management. 30 odd years later I revisted in somewhat better conditions. Looks great from a distance but very eroded & very popular. Been up loads of times, and from every direction imaginable and in all weather conditions - of late invariabley doing the my annual Three Peaker - and this was the occasion of my 2005 effort. Missed 2007 but did the 3 peaker on 23/05/2008 (7th time now)and surprisingly the top was the least busiest Ive ever seen it - Friday before the Bank Holiday. Yet another visit on 30/05/2009 this time from Clapham via Newby and across Simon/Park Fell to Ribblehead - as busy as a city centre at the top, hardly a soul on the rest of the route.No cars, train & on foot.

Revisited 15/04/2007 - it would seem the dirt bikers have been doing their stuff in the quarry and an attempt has been made to prevent them from gaining access from the road by large metal gates and fencing off and filling in a track access, so what do they do - well just come across the tracks to the wind turbines, wreck the fence and away they go - personally Id be more than happy to see them doing their stuff in an old quarry rather than trashing a bridleway or footpath somewhere.

Excellent views today with good visibility across the surrounding area. Came up from Horton along Foxup Road following a faint path/track running adjacent the fence/broken wall - we turned left immediateley before the stone footbridge over the (usually) dry stream at Swarth Gill Gate and kept the wall/fence on our right, when we reached the crest of the hill we turned right (unless visibilities poor you'll see the trig way before you reach the crest). Strangely the area around the trig has an 'electric fence' around it (at this area it did have notices - unlike stonestreakers later posting) - god knows why - the 'electric fence' don't work - well at least it didn't today as I can testify by virtue of grabbing the bloody thing with zilch of an effect - and slightly to the west of the trig is a broken wall where it's a simple job to straddle the fence anyway. There's a tall stone pillar a couple of hundred yards to the west of the trig that's worth a visit (near Cosh Knott Well) - strangely not shown on the 2002 map, does anyone know why the stone pillar is there ?

One of those 'out of the way' trigs that most hikers wouldn't really consider visiting other than to 'tig the trig'. No public RoW - although the Access Land will probably change this - no real view to call of - set at the back of forrestation and a bit out in the middle of nowhere and leading to ... well ... to be honest, nowhere - it's one of them you have to make the effort to get to. I came up from Cam Houses and followed a (muddy) track that ran up the moor with the woodland on the right (not the RoW through the wood.) When you reach the wall at the hill top turn left into a walled/fenced lane and follow it to the trig. The path through the wood at SD834860 is faint but OK and reaches the wide track at SD805834 but I couldn't find a route leading down to Low Green Field (as indicated on the OS map) so had to turn right along the wide stoney track to eventualy reach the track leading towards Low Birkwith Moor and ultimately Horton.

Update from 30/07/2006, it's now on access land - todays route was Marsden to Toddy, similar to ted I was intrigued by the numerous psuedo trigs (see teds photo) here to the SE around Booth Wood Reservoir but - all in close proximity - I'm guessing they're something to do with the Water Board - there's obviously some form of tool/instrument that will sit in the top. No cars, on foot.

Hoof Stones Height. Revisited in Aug 2006 and again 31 May 2010 and on al occasions we never saw another soul - wonderful. The views are OK but the surrounding area is very eroded/boggy. There's a chunk missing out of one of the top corners and the erosion is beginning to isolate it (see the 'from the west' photo. Another hill with more than just the OS Permitted Path to the trig although it's in a large area of access land now. Right on the Lanky/Yorky border NNW of Todmorden. Part of a lenghty hike from Toddy to Hebden. No cars, on foot.

What can I say, in an island of fantastic places this is a fantastic place. Done on a Port Erin to Peel coastal hike - a good up and down hike - nice view from the trig but hiking a little further north gives a wonderful view over the castle and town. No cars, on foot. The photos are from a more recent visit on 28/09/2006 - this time an easy-peasy from Peel. No cars, the bus & on foot!

Windeeeeeeeeeeeeee as hell. Great view. My first and only 'plastic', the railway takes you within spitting distance (well it would have today in this wind). No cars, via the railway. Photo from May 2005 in a less windy climate & on a hike to Laxey via North Barrule (railway to Snaefell then on foot), We were extremely fortunate that the 6 kindoms were visible on this visit. Another 'plastic' visit on 26/09/2006 (after a lenghty coastal walk though). Woman at the trig thought the 3 arms of the spider 'must be because it's to do with the Isle of Man' (I did enlighten her a little!).

Not much to report on this one, urban sprawl - at the end of a dirt track coming up from Pudsey Beck/Woods, bagged nontheless. Revisited 3 years & 1 day later simply for the photo. And again May, June, July, Aug 2008 and umpteen times since. One of my most visited trigs as its on a local route that I do if if Im strapped for time, money or simply fancy a last minute walk I havent already arranged. On the route I usually choose I really dont HAVE to visit the trig, but on most occasions I do go out of my way to visit it, simply because ITS THERE. Usually a 12 miler from home to Pudsey bus station but sometimes a 20+ if I decide to return on foot.No cars, on foot.

Absolutely awful. Think of your nearest city centre at 2pm on Saturday and you'll get some idea of what to expect here on a weekend - full of plastics visting 'the country' who (of course) have to drive to within 0.5 metres of the site - oh, and don't forget to visit the tea/sandwich/fast food bar to make your visit totally complete. Vastly over-rated - awful, awful, awful - guess what - I hated it. Pateley Bridge circular. No cars, on foot.

This is NOT Little Whernside, this grid reference refers to plain old Whernside (of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks fame). Little Whernside is an altogether seperate hill some miles from here at grid reference SE 777 027 - Little Whernside is approx 3 1/2 miles NNE of Great Whernside - it has no trig point and is 130 mtrs lower than THE (this) Whernside. That aside, of the 3 Peaks this is my favourite, it gets a bad press but I like it especially if you ascend/descend using the less popular tracks - go mid-week and avoid the ......... well, crowds isnt the right word - it doesnt get anywhere near the traffic that Ingleborough does - but it can be busy on sunny summer weekend afternoons. Been up loads of times since, the views on a good day are fantastic - I refrain from the detail here but its a 360 degree panorama of extending beauty - of course getting that good day is a bit of a challenge. To be pedantic, this is not the highest point in Yorkshire, that feet is on Mickle Fell just west of Middleton On Tees - Whernside is the highest peak in the admistrive boundaries that were imposed in 1974 but not in the real Yorkshire. Latest visit in Oct 2013 as part of my 15th 3 Peaker. NCOF!.

Decent enough view on a good day. I'm personally less than impressed by the track if you go up the popular way from Bolton Abbey/Valley of Desolation - it's a managed, large gravel track - other routes are far better. Revisited 30/09/2007 - very popular in todays autumnal sun. No cars, on foot.

Revisited Sept 2006 in much the same weather conditions, some of the sections of the bridleway on the summit & the descent into Buckden have now been flagged/paved. No cars, on foot.

Easily the best & quietest way on/off Ingleborough with great views across to Ribblehead, Whernside & Pen Y Ghent. Not shown as a right of way on the OS map but where the route from Ingleborough descends steeply towards Philpin take the track heading to the right across the lip of the hill (its not as sheer as it at first looks, the path is fine in all but the icyest of weather). Photos from the re-visit on 27/01/07, on this occasion I came up from Ribblehead and took the wide path over Park/Simon Fell to Ingleborough and thence Horton. Immersed in cloud with poor visibility once on the top. And again 30/05/2009 from Clapham via Newby & Ingleborough to reach Ribblehead. No cars, on foot (on all occasions).

What can one say, this was my/our first visit and since then I/we have been up innumerable times & in every type of weather imaginable and every way possible. Its a goody but the erosion is begining to hurt - go midweek to avoid the crowds. The newish wind break is a welcome addition. On July 2006s visit we watched a local sheep eat a banana (skin and all!) - which isnt something you see everyday (wasnt from one of our group I hasten to add (the sheep or the banana!!)). The snowy photos are from 27/12/2005 visit - the distant view is by Sue (my wife) - on that occasion by the time wed reached the trig the weather was poor - cloud & close mist on the summit. No cars, train then on foot!
