Parked on the roadside layby and headed out in the direction of the pillar. part path and then a little rough ground. No that bad due to hot spell. Trig has been turned into a Dalek!! (see pic) Good views to the East on a warm sunny day. Trig had all metal work intact.

Log #89. 424m. Short detour from walking Section 1 of the Kirklees Way LDP from Marsden. Temp 27c, p.sunny, visibility v.good. Views 270 degrees. As noted by Terry L, best access is from the N. If you,re driving, there is a lay-by on New Hey Rd (A640) just N of the trig. There is actually a narrow path up to the trig, but it tracks in a circle for some reason. As you pass to the E side of the trig, you may think the path is missing it, but fret not, it circles right round to the pillar.

Wimp's tig. I parked the car in a space on the south side of the A640 and it was an easy 5 minute stroll to the trig point, first follwing a faint path and then across the grass. Dry conditions meant that this was a piece of cake. Tussocks not easy going on the ankles though.

we got up there at pitch black, as we had decided to go for some night trigging, very boggy, and we placed our bikes in the reeds so we could step across the first bog bit near the reeds, we got the trig after alot of stumbling about through all the ankle breakers, came back to get our bikes but we couldnt find them. so we spent the next hour trapsing up and down, with a little LED light trying to find our bikes in the reeds, just before we called to get picked up and come get them in the morning light, we spotted them, we were so glad we found them, and we will never be as silly as that ever again!

Came up from Marsden (ending up in Sowerby Bridge). Simple enough walk (if somewhat uphill initially). Very faint path directly below Cupwith Reservoir leads to the trig - sorry, but tigging it from the nearby road is a wimps tig in my opinion - hazy weather at the time of the tig but good views when coming up the moor back down across Marsden & beyond.
