Good companion for yesterdays trip to Silverdale colliery trig...this one is right next to another pit emblem with the National Museum down the road. Bit of a maze of A roads wandering across the moors from the wonderful Emley mast. Rare to find a little well walked lane near loads of houses which is so clean and feels looked after, a glorious contrast of the village and town scape out to Wakefield and the eastern cargo ports/distribution warehouses and power stations, whilst to west, pretty old Pennine farmland, the mast, the moors, skylarks singing by the smart little hillside estates. Could do with having the bin a little further away from the trig though... Afterwards the Hepworth museum in Wakefield - more beautiful pottery and fab photography collection. Sighting of the museum is superb as the hail storms descend...

Had been looking at tents down at Mitchells, so just had a look at this one - from the minor road near the church at Overton look for Smithy Lane and you can drive or walk down this straight to the trig near the cricket field. Rainy day, but nice views from these Pennine foothills even so.

GPSr gives WGS84 Datum as N53 38.666 W01 36.559 and using British Grid and Ord Survey Datum give OS grid as SE 25930 16509 which correlates to location shown on 50,000 and 250,000 OS maps.
