No view today, but lots of interesting things to see on the slopes of this fairly bland hill. Peered into the excellent Calf Holes pothole and explored Browgill Cave where the stream emerges. Also checked out a lovely old lime kiln, God's Bridge (Mark fell in the stream) and Ling Gill; an impressive ravine.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 9th September 1949 costing 18.5s.6d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SD96/T3 in 1951. Levelled for height in 1954. Last maintained by the OS in July 1976. OS archive has FB No. S5327 in error. SITE VISIT: Three trig circuit starting and finishing near High Green Field. Probably best to park outside (derelict) Far Barn at SD835796. There is no suitable parking offered any further up this public road, and doing so will result in a politely worded note attached to windscreen. Approached from southeast via SD81777 and following mapped tracks after bagging Cosh Outside. Access land used for grazing. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces SSW, ~193. All four horizontal sighting holes open, innards filled with debris. Full 360 open outlook. Continued to Low Green Field Lings. Returned to car to find handwritten note affixed informing that this meadow is private, of SSSI status, and not to park there again.

I was in Horton to help on a Three Peak event so needed to kill some time between the competitors starting and returning. So thought I would have a walk out to our checkpoint at Birkwith and continue on to this nearby pillar. Easy access and very visible once you crest the hill. As others have done walked up from the Pennine Way initially using tracks as a pointer. Pillar is in good condition and looks as though it is used as an orientation location as the top has a clipper attached to it. Still retains an original plug. A lovely view point from which to take in the famous three peaks.

Not the best weather wise but a fairly decent view of the three peaks. Eaasy access on an unwalled/unfenced moor off the Pennine way a few yards west of Old Ing - theres a quad bike track that takes you 2/3 of the way up the hill - then just head up to the top, trigs not visible until you get within 50 yards of it.
