From Edale via Mam Nick; Rushup Edge and then the relatively new slabbed path across what is currently an extremely soggy Brown Knoll to the trig. Good views but the immediate surroundings are a peaty desolated moor. Without the slabs this would have probably have been a horredous flounder through peat, so much as I dislike slabbed paths, they have their uses especially when you need to meet someone at a set time. Also will reduce disturbance of birds (lots of larks and a female golden plover seen). Return to Edale via Jacobs Ladder and the Pennine Way. Edale Country Day and Fell Race today so place was bustling.

Onwards from Kinder Low - thank God for the flagged paths, at least as far as they go - a very wet walk back S to Barber Booth CP. Helicopter going backwards and forwards from Edale for the entire duration of our walk, delivering heather brash and grass seed, as we subsequently learned from a NP ranger we met. Trig is sitting at least 3m into a sea of mud, but luckily partially frozen today so crossable, carefully! Plastic cap, but otherwise vgc.

Walking with my mate, Tracker Dog, to bag the first of three trigs on the W side of Kinder, last week it was the E side. Weather was great and the walk was surprisingly dry, the driest I've ever seen for the plateau. Walked up Chapel Gate then N to the trig, good views to the W. Trig seems perched on a bed of damp peat. Much helicopter activity sprinkling moss (?) seed, lime and fertilizer on the plateau. On to number two, Kinder Low.

Well this is certainly the way to visit Kinder - by steering well clear. Fabulous views of Kinder Low once South Head has been skillfully avoided, (why, oh why), on the treck up from Malcoff, made even more pleasant by the hoards visibly pounding along that distant edge. (Just when do the school holidays end?) The bad news? Peat bogs are back on the agenda. Squelch!

2/2 Very dry underfoot today, just right for this trig. White coat of paint makes this trig visible from quite a distance.

Visited whilst walking the Edale Skyline with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA. This pillar is normally in a sea of deep peat mud but easily reachable today. Situated on a peat plateau so compared to other places in the area views are somewhat restricted. Everything in good order. Plastic plug.

A wet and windy afternoon and the mist was down so no views. Peat was frozen just below the surface so a strange experiance not going up to my knees walk across it. Trig in good order.

Snow above 450m today, hiding the bogs on the way over from Rushup Edge. My son Daniel found one of them en route unexpectedly, but quite firm near the pillar.

Nicely recovered from its vandal attack. Good condition, very wet area, with tough round walk to take in this with Mam Tor. Rushup Edge is a 'must' when walking this

The trig is now looking rather slendid with a new coat of white paint. It did however seem to be a magnet for bees!

This was also the first of 4 Kinder trigs today, but when going to bag this trig prepare to get swallowed by the peat bog.

Im not actully logging this one myself (Barry Actully!), just adding a note that this trigpoint may have been repaired at somepoint. See picture at: http://www.btinternet.com/~yorkshire.walks/diary/diary57.htm "The trig point itself is a sorry sight ... and this one has fallen off it's stone pedestal to lie forlornly in the mud."
