An underground reservoir stands where this used to be. There are good views when there's a break in the trees to Preston to the west and West Pennine moors to the east. It's a short and pleasant walk to it, passing a lovely flooded quarry.

From the E after the Hoghton FBM. Pillar gone and a water tank in situ with a trig bolt on the top. See TP25655 for photos of the tank and bolt.

Like others I called here after visiting the nearby FBM in the hope that the Trig Pillar fairy had waved her wand and replaced it. No such luck.

Replaced with a small hilltop reservoir - a deer skipped past and a hawk of somekind hovered overhead as I sauntered around the brickwork. :)

Duxon Hill ...is that a painted benchmark? :)

Just up the road from Hoghton FBM. Assuming the trig was at the hilltop, then long gone to reservoir.

Got Close. There is a brick-built bunker located at the exact co-ordinates of the trig. It has long gone! Shame, because it was a hard walk for my partner with hayfever and Asthma...

Stones throw away from Hoghton FBM. I feared that the trig was within the reservoir compound (which has usual water authority security including barbed wire on surrounding wall etc). Have since obtained info that trig was built 03/08/45 and subsequently destroyed on 28/10/48. Trig only just made it to it's 3rd birthday - infanticide.
