(1541) Called in at New Whitelow Farm. Permission to cut across their land, instead of having to go the long way round through the woods, freely given. The pillar stands in the next field along to theirs, but they said the owner wouldn't mind me visiting. All good and soon reached. And some cracking views to be had as a bonus. Pillar history: Built on the 29th of June 1947, at a cost of 6 0s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in July of 1985.

Parked on Whitelow Lane by New Whitelow Farm and asked for permission. We went through a roadside gate a few yards west of the farm, across a large field to a gate in the top right hand corner and over another gate to the visible pillar. Again, very good all round views today. The farm building is vey well maintained and I would advise to ask for permission.

Parked up at 285 813, crossed the road into the woods and down the hill a bit, headed back NE further down the hill and over a stream on a footbridge, then up the corner of the plantation where the trig is. It's just over the wall on private land..

First of a five trigpoint walk thanks to barnsley skip for the parking location. Followed the route through the wood. Returned across the fields on the north side of the valley to the point where the lane joins the main road avoiding the steep climbs in and out of the valley. Continued onto Ox Stones.

Accessed from path through the woods as per several other triggers. Easy access across crumbling dry stone wall but watch out for the electric fence just infront of the trig which precludes closer inspection. Views not that inspiring. Returned to Upper Burbage Bridge across the moor when a light shower resulted in a beautiful double rainbow framing the heather.

Seems I took a different route from previous visitors. Set off from road through gate by New Whitelow Farm, which doesn't seem to be a working farm any longer. The field had recently been mown, and a further gate gave access to the pillar.

Ok views eastwards; woods behind trig is SSSI (site of special scientific interest) a nature reserve which has a partial perimeter footpath around it with access from FP from A625. This goes dead near the TP but its on private land. Probably best to get permission from New Whitelow Farm.

Very much on private farmland. I asked permission at New Whitelow Farm and it was readily given. As a result acccess was realatively easy via opening gates. Not immediately visible until through gaate next to woodland. Good views to north and east. Excellent condition with original depressed lettering plub

On first visit the white pillar, which is by a dry stone wall above Roundseats Farm, was in deep snow which prevented access. Revisited on 18 September 1982 to take photograph of pillar at edge of cut field.
