Visited on a clear day doing a half circuit of Combs Moss. Good views E. Start point Lightwood Road in Buxton where paths through the bracken from the waterworks give easy access to the hilltop. If you follow the wall across Combs Head be careful of the drainage ditch next to the trodden path which is overgrown and invisible in places and could lead to sludge covered feet or a wrenched ankle.

Rather a slog up from the Corbar Hill through heather and boggy moorland. Decent views from the trig but it was blowing a gale up there so we didn't linger long! This was our 6th Trig bagged over 4 days in the Peaks :)

Today's visit was as part of a BMC hillwalking event from Combs. The trig was on one of the legs I led. A nice start to the day soon gave way to rain and strong winds. Fortunately there was a pub at the end of the walk.

First of 5 trigs on W side of Buxton. Parked in Dove Holes and went into CROW land to get to the trig via Lady Low. Good views W of moors, E limestone scenery and ever busy A6. Back to car across non-access land, but asked permission of farmer in field who was trapping voles, a pest to the sheep. Back to car to park in Buxton for the next 4 trigs. (Ben's photo of a snow capped trig looks good!)

Straightforward navigation from Corbar Hill following an obvious trod along the Eastern perimeter of Combs Moss. Stopped for a while at Flint Clough just listening to the water rushing off the hillside. Brilliant white pillar first becomes visible from the 506m spot height. Pillar is in good order with all four sight holes open and original metal cap. Great 360 views with rolling hills in all directions.

The second of two trigpoints on a route taken from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. Walked over from Corbar Hill – lots of snow about with drifting – if there were any paths they were deep in snow forcing me into the heather and bogs. Decided to put my gaiters on after my boots had filled with snow. Very hard going – no footprints to follow – had to be very careful streams were covered and it was easy to sink deep into boggy ground. Great 360 deg views from the trigpoint with some blue sky and little wind. Continued on the suggested route along Hob Tor, Short Edge and Combs Edge. Had great difficulty finding any kind of path in the snow making this a very difficult route in these conditions – only eight miles but it just about pushed me to the limit.

Interesting route from Chapel Station, (where that you may ask), and Castle Naze, (Pinnacle Arete May 1978 if you ask) and around the edge. Views enhanced by the fact that you look OVER Dove Holes rather than at it. Tempted to add another mark for the excuse to revisit the Beehive.

Parked at the back of White Hall & took footpath up to Combs Edge following the broken wall round the moor edge to 2 small buildings. Picked up the track leading East past the grouse butts & then followed path by broken wall heading SE before turning N along the edge to the trig. About an hour each way.

Breezy and cold, but clear views. Trig is in good condition. For those visiting on a circular, the path starts (or finishes) at Castle Naze (SK 05205 78634) and follows the wall all the way around Combs Moss to "Round The Bend" (SK 03690 75839) where you can join the Midshires Way - much easier than cutting across the Moss!

I approached from Lightwood Reservoir (note reservoir has now gone) then along ridge on peaty path. However a much better approach and more rewarding would be to start at SK052785 on the minor road, climb up to Castle Naze Hill Fort then along the edge of the ridge via Short Edge and Hob Tor. There is a peaty path through the heather which is easy to follow.
