Strange place, the bustle of Stoodley and Pennine Way so near - so quiet and peaceful here. Walked round this for 20 or so years so glad to go onto the moor "proper" at last. Sure it never used to be painted but looks like it's just me not looking properly. Ascend through heather from Withens and Pennine Way.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 26th April 1948 costing £18.2s.7d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SE02/T2 in 1948. Levelled for height in 1962. Last maintained by the OS in October 1980. SITE VISIT: Started from the NNW, Mankinholes. Parked in lane just off public road to south of junction at SD960233. Continued south on that lane to joinn the Calderdale Way which climbs steeply to meet the Pennine Way. Continued south on the Pennine Way until it meets the Warland Drain. Did the human bridge act to cross the flooded drain. Followed fence line to summit. Pillar stands on rocky outcrop called Little Holder Stones. Column in good condition and repainted in recent years but the overpainting of the flush bracket had become grotty, so cleared some weathered paint from the FB to make it more readable. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces north ~3°. Vented through three sight holes, west face plugged, innards filled with debris. Full 360° panoramic view. Returned via similar route doing a careful balancing act on a sheep barrier to cross the Warland Drain.

Logged this one on a circular stroll from Todmorden in excellent weather. Came through Cragg Vale just in time to see the Tour de France go through, all well timed! A nice location is this trig, with some fine views of the surrounding moors, including Inchfield Moor, Blackstone Edge and Black Hill (Holme Moss). Overall an excellent days stroll on the moors. You can read a detailed write up of this walk on my blog by tapping 'Fell Finder' into Google, thanks.

Parked near SD 96472 24393 then took bridleway NNE towards Edge End Moor, Lower Rough Head Farm, Stoodley Pike and finally on to Blake Moor to bag the trig point which is surrounded by reservoirs and catchment drain that can be tricky to cross twice to return to starting point.

Plug whitewashed over, but probably plastic. Public. Access Land. Superbly located out on the moor at Little Holder Stones. White pillar clearly visible from the Pennine Way. Take the path which loops round Warland Reservoir & then strike out across the open moor - the going is boggy at first, but gets stonier and drier as the trig is approached. Pillar very photogenic & hard to decide which of several excellent photos to upload!

Walked up from Withens Clough on Pennine Way south. Drainage channel has to be negotiated before you make your way to the summit. Boulder stones to the NE are a more prominent landmark. Nice white trig on rock outcrops, someone obviously taking the trouble to look after this one. Good 360 degree views, but rather a desolate spot on top of South Pennine moors.

The Little Holder Stones. One of my favourite trigs - totally agree with John Riley (above) - this was the most recent of a number of visits (must have missed John by an hour or so). The moor is circled by reservoir drains which need to be crossed, they're usually pretty empty. The photo of the drain in flood was taken on a later visit to the area (not the trig) in Nov 2005, I've never seen it like this before. If you can't cross the drain there's an access point at southern end of Warland Reservoir. And again 23/03/2007. No cars, on foot.
