Had to give this a 7 for the views alone - stunning. Parked roadside on Manchester Rd. Up through woods, initially on a good FP, then directly up through woodland, then out onto open hillside. Pillar has some chipping from top edges; original cap, lightly indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open. Large cross nearby, enclosed in metal railings. Superb 360deg panorama.

Easily found from Corbar Lane by walking uphill through Corbar Woods. Top of pillar and its attendent cross are soon visible after breaking cover from the trees. A pleasant location with wide 360 views on a clear if rather breezy day. Grinlow Tower easily visible to the South of Buxton. Shame about the TV mast over towards Brown Edge but if you choose your angles carefully you can hide it from view when taking photos. Top of the pillar is a little gnarled but otherwise in good order with all original metalwork present.

The first of two trigpoints on a route taken from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. April 5th and all the all the passes had been closed due to heavy snow fall the previous day – but it looked like being a good day for a walk with sun and only light winds. Parked in Corbar Road and walked up through the woods – plenty of snow about with drifting.
