Google maps puts the coords of the station on the building towards the W corner of the compound. Viewed from outside the fence, theres a small blip on the roof but hard to be certain. Hang Glider passing by.

Tricky to know where this rivet was emplaced. The GR would indicate somewhere just inside the compound from the S side. Old Maps a bit frustrating as the 1960-3 1:2k5 map doesn't show it, but the earlier and later 1:10,560 maps do. However, their resolution doesn't allow for pinpointing where the trig was installed. The compound is near enough impregnable so no chance of finding it without bona fide access. My money goes that it's on the roof of one of the buildings, more towards the W side of the compound.

Took a moment to remember the victims of the 1958 plane crash that occured within a few hundred yards of here. Weather conditions were so bad at the time, that the engineers working up here were unaware of the incident.My Dads mate was a raw police recruit who helped with the rescue and recovery and found it very traumatic.

7 mile circular over Rivington Pike and onto Winter Hill, perfectly clear and sunny, could see Blackpool Tower from top, onto Cheetham Close (Druidical Circle) trig and Darwen Moor trig.

Walked up from Wilderswood via Winter Hill TV Mast (TP13276) and Rivington (TP0701) - both still intact! My GPS put the rivet in the compound of the most north western mast. I walked round the compound but saw nothing. The ground is quite disturbed. I looked at a few likely pieces of concrete with binoculars but couldn't see anything.
