3/7 Trig bagging on way back to Sheff after dropping Aussie bound son at M'chester airport. Asked at main house of campsite and permission was readily given. Trig is behind 'Shepherd's hut' accommodation at edge of small copse. Funny that, I never knew shepherds had outdoor hot tubs. Good views of radio telescope and nearby hills.

Fortunate timing as I was able to follow an old couple walking up the lane to the farm. Views pretty good, if not amazing, from the pillar.

Parked on grass verge by Paradise cottage and walked up Trap Street to the junction. Walked up the farm track to Welltrough Farm and a tractor driver told me its location. There was no one at the farm to ask for permission. It is by a telegraph pole near a small group of trees.

Approached from SW - Trap Street. Hedge and barbed wire fence sparse by large tree. Once in field, the walk round the margins involved thick, continuous nettles - luckily not stinging at present. Access to trig involved crawling under a barbed wire fence and then an electric fence. OK but recommend asking permission at farm.

The best approach is from the east. Start from end of lane at SJ823686. Walk via field boundaries to join track uphill then left through gate to reach trig point. Land is private and trig point is in full view of a house.

Arrived for a southwestern approach from the road at the same time as residents and was unable to secure permission. The open access land to the east will be my route in next time I am this way.
