Parked at the top of Moorlands View and followed the Signed path around the back of the houses and along the wrong side of the hedge, which was easily crossed to enter the quagmire surrounding the trig, which sits in a field corner by the hedge and a gate, The Trig is in good condition , if a little pebbly , the cap and one sight hole are open , FB faces east views mainly of a hedge and two large storage tanks-definitely a Welly Bob Job

HISTORY: Pillar completed 10th May 1940 costing 4.4s.3d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SD80/8 during 1945 and refixed in 1989. Levelled for height to class 1 precision at tertiary standards in 1963. Last maintained by the OS in June 1989. SITE VISIT: Approached from north. Parked in first available side street parking space (SD691066) although later found I could have parked nearer.Near easterly edge of grazing field. Followed back lanes and roads to mapped RoW which disappears through the houses before reaching the fields. Easiest to enter field from the north edge to avoid thick hedges. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces east, compass measurement 100. Vented through north sight hole. Two short spans of distant view span from NW to NNE and SE to south. Part of a 24 trig stint around the northern outskirts of Manchester.

Manages to make the nearby Salford UA top look even worse, good view if you like distribution sheds, some nice black sheep in the farm below. Though the weather doesn't help - path up from Plodder Lane is in disgraceful state used farm track to get back.

Mud what mud? On the fragrant Salford/Bolton borders - excitement grows later to bag the Salford UA top, think some of the houseowners have failed to realise the "Window Tax" was repealed.

Parked at the junction of Cow Lane and Westfield Road. Walked south to the track but instead of turning right went straight on for a few yards and squeezed through the barbed wire fence and then round to the trig. Undistinguished pillar in a muddy field.

Easy to find if approached from A579 and straight up Cow Lane until the fence around the water things is reached. Turn right off track and follow fence round to the right, and when you get to the next corner, the trig is visible over by the hedge. Slight damage to top corner of trig.

Up here today for Lincoln City's big day out at The Reebok Stadium. We lost, of course, but we wonh't forget the occasion! A chance to grab some trig points on the way to the game, starting with this one. Easy access via a footpath from the neighbouring housing estate and then across the snow to the pillar. It's slightly chipped on the top and the plug has gone. No paint. All sightholes below soil level or closed. There's probably a good view from here but today it was snowing and foggy so I couldn't see a thing!

Spare 20 mins having driven down from Carlisle before a meeting so a good excuse to stretch legs before sitting down again. Northerly approach best with safe parking in a pleasant looking estate. beware though the trig is not in the field with the footpath and this field is best entered immediately after leaving the housing estate.
