1960 housing estate. Leeside Road. Good views to west. Pillar looks to have been on the highest point, on site now occupied by a house.

Its dark, its been snowing. A good choice for my 51st West Yorkshire pillar even if destroyed. Utilised Morrisons car park and walked up via Jeremy Lane, Dale Lane and appropriately Crabtree Ave. 12 Priestley Ave is easy to find, thanks to the photos and notes here. Didn't call in for tea though. Higher land of Popeley Fields nearby could give better views.

Map put it in the centre of a housing estate, but no longer there.

Log #88. (134m). Leg 2 of 2 trig 5.7km walk from Birstall to White Lee via Oakwell Hall. The view from this trig would have been quite spectacular IF it was there AND IF there were no houses all around it. Peering thru the houses I could see Castle Hill, HD, Emley Moor and the Pennine Hills above Marsden. The only place higher in the immediate area is the ridge of Popely Farm Fields to the NNW. I came off the ridge on my way S to the trigpoint. So with no views now and no trig, its another big fat zero!

Crab Trees #12 Priestley Ave. The trig would have been at the centre of the house (There is a caravan in front of the house in iainmacs 2006 photo).©johnbamforth

Oh I dont know why! Well yes, I do in all honesty, as it now leaves me 12 short of a full West Yorkshire compliment. Theres no Crab Trees, no pillar & theres no view really. From Batley railway station back to my house was an 11.5 miler simply to tig this non-existent trig, half of which was on urban footpath. Suitable case for teatment? Yes I think so!! A final moan though, why werent/arent developers encouraged to preserve pillars, surely they could jiggle road plans to sit a trig on an island in the road or on a peice of open grassland without too much trouble? NCOF!

3/4. The crest of the hill is still very evident, even though the area has been significantly developed.

This one is long gone. The spot height (137m) is just about at the junction of Priestley Avenue and Lawrence Crescent. I guess the trig was somewhere around this point.

Crab Trees The high point (137m) is just behind the Discovery.

This one is long gone. I thought as much, but did go there today and checked. It was removed from the 2003 edition of the OS Landranger map Sheet 104.
