A pleasant circular walk from Halifax and the Shibden valley, passing this trigpoint on Beacon Hill. Asked permission at the property with the guard dog. Excellent distant views including Blackstone Edge, Stoodley Pike, and Ovenden Moor.

Stood at the wall 5m away from the pillar. Didn't cross the wall to touch it because: 1. It's in a residential garden and I wanted to respect their privacy. 2. The wall looked unstable and I didn't want to cause any damage. 3. I don't fancy my chances face to face with a large alsatian on his patch. 4. The grass was long and wet. (Actually 4 wasn't a significant part of the rationale).

Surprisingly I'd never logged this trig point despite walking up here regularly and in the past I'd even photographed the trig. Today I was up here again to find a nearby Geocache so I took the opportunity to bag this one.

Hidden behind a wall at the top of the main Beacon Hill path. You can get to it but have to go through a farmer's yard with a loose German Shephard.

Bagged another! Got another local Trig Point today with Rohan.

That nice alsation is still there. Mistakenly thought trig would be near beacon but is hidden by a ridge wall. Owner of dog friendly and chained him up for us, alas my co-trigger did not realise how long the chain is - so approach with care!

Not immediately visible. Just north of the beacon and over wall to east. Situated in a compound and needed a bit of wall climbing to reach, luckily not observed by anyone. Best views of Halifax from the edge rather than from the pillar but still an elevated view point, hence the beacon.

Quite hard to find skulking behind a high stone wall in a small compound at the bottom of someone's garden. Such a shame it spends its life in solitary confinement when there's a big world with a big view over Halifax only yards away.

I got spotted by the occupants of the house so walked across the garden and sought permission from a lad to enter the small compound in which this trig sits. I am still unsure whether the compound belongs to the house or is something else all together. Anyway, the trig is there overlooking halifax.
