A bitterly cold day becoming damp, but blessed with some ice and a pale blue sky and some mountain making cloud shapes. Nice trig but to be fair completely upstaged by the space rocket tower - great to see open. Walked up to the hill top - splendid view back to the tower en route

HISTORY: Pillar completed 30th August 1945 costing 10.13s.3d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SD74/2 within the Blackburn block during 1947. Levelled for height in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in October 1980. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from east. Good street parking in Manor Road at SD688216. Up via public track from Belgrave Road which leads all the way to the summit. Darwen Tower dominates this top and eclipses the trig pillar at around 11:00 hrs BST. White painted pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces SSE, ~156. All sight holes open, innards filled with debris. 202 panoramic view spans from WSW through north to east. Climbed the tower while I was here. Two other visitors, quite separate from each other also photographed the pillar and FB while I was still around!

fabulous tall monument next to this pillar which I've come to, partly as a pilgrimage walk, as its numbers are party of the 'Trig walk of life' the 3rd birthday of twin girls from Cheltenham who sadly both died two months before their 18th birthday. continued on to the HuMP summit, 2km ssw.

I was up on a day trip to Blackburn and had come here via Fernhurst Hill trig pillar and Tockholes village. It was so windy on top that it was a battle to take photographs. Still, I can't complain as I was lucky enough to have the place to myself. After climbing up the tower I then made a hasty retreat down to Darwen.

14/15 on the day. Great location. Came up the easy way from Darwen rather than use the car park at the Visitors centre. The tower is also the second stage of a multi-geocache.

one of those BSM 3476 style fb's. attacked by 2 dogs on the way up the really steep concrete track. Fantastic tower-so glad something like that can stay open without being trashed
