Long gone to quarrying. Cloudy and grey walk uo after parking near the entrance to the donkey sanctuary. Visited the edge near where the trig used to be too.

Paid our respects on return cycle route back along the white (Bridle Path) passing Donkey rest home and onwards passing South side of Bee low quarry. For those interested - Donkey Sanctuary now closed. Apparently moved to Cornwall !

Do I need help? I just visited the site of a Trig Point on a MOUNTAIN that no longer exists! Strangely tricky navigation on a clockwise route from Sparrowpits. (Spar Row, kids!) But, yes, lovely pub. JC once told me there are any number of jammed pot-holers sealed up around there. Any truth?

Like others do not normally bother with the ones that are definitely missing but as was in area thought may as well log. Visited site on walk from Dove Holes to Edale in what turned out to be lovely Derbyshire rain

I don't normally bother with these, but en route from Bradwell Moor to Dove Holes. Most definitely missing & most definitely private - "danger, keep out" signs all round. Bee Low quarry is part of larger Dove Holes quarry, worked by Cemex.

impressive quarry if you like that sort of thing, had a walk round edge to get as close as possible to where trigpoint once stood.

Approached the present high point of Bee Low via diverted footpath on W side. Top down views; hard to imagine the original land surface.

Walked over in the rain to check a Trigpoint that went missing before I was born :o) I was not shocked that I didnt find it, just a very impressive hole in a active quarry

Bee Low is now part of Dove Holes, and Smalldale quaries. I walked around the quarry pit edge for a bit to be sure that where there once was a trig point, there is now a very large hole! Impressive stone work though.

Where is that pillar? Photo of Bee Low quarry
