Took full advantage of the non-golfing day! Parked in layby to the SE and walked along track to the observatory then hopped over a very low wall, then a simple stroll to the pillar. Good views across to West/Shooters Nab and Pule Hill.

Clearly signed footpath from road, but then undefined on golf course. Tackled for being on "private land" and pointed in other directions for possible footpaths, but then complete change of attitude and helpful when said I was after a visit to trig point!

Good parking in the layby below the observatory. Lots of golfers about got some strange looks and spoke to one group who tried to direct me back onto the path but managed to get to the pillar and dodge the golf balls. Realise as I write the log that this was my 300th trigpoint.

Crossland Golf Course, c'mon the bit of heather it sits on is hardly 'Heath'. Had no problems with access, chatted to a local golfer who told me it wasn't the busiest of golf courses and ambled up to the trig. Good views all around. Last trig on an 18 mile circular trek from Slaithwaite on a lovely autumnal day.

Heath!! Near the 6th tee??

Theres a right of way across the course but it isn't clearly marked so maybe not surprising if you stray slightly off line to the trig. But beware grumpy golfers. Trig has plastic plug otherwise OK. Theres what appears to be an Observatory in the adjacent field.

trig from a safe distance.
