Approached the trig from Cox Green Road. Using a path that ran alongside a driveway the path was clear until the third style. From there, their is a path but it tends to go around Cheetham Close rather than up it. So that meant a direct trek to the top which is quite challenging. Once at the top, 360 deg views but the trig is damaged and quite nondescript.

Open moor, mapped as access land. Pillar in damaged condition, flush bracket S2802 was stolen long ago. Spider centre contains a partially burnt plastic cap. Flush bracket faced ESE, compass measurement 119. Vented through sight hole on what was FB face. Full 360 panoramic view. Part of a 24 trig stint around the northern outskirts of Manchester.

A wild old day, up from the beautiful Entwistle reservoir snow thick on the road - a minute later a loud bang of thunder **** , a quick descent and shelter with some unhappy chickens! Great.

White pillar on long, flat ridge. The damage is slight & restricted to where the FB has been hacked out, plus an apparent attempt to burn out the plastic plug. Public. Access Land. Easily reached from Egerton, although the approach paths are muddy.
