Short walk from road coming down from Haggate - up a track, then right up a public footpath, then along crest of ridge past a field of very curious sheep who followed me all the way to the trig!!

Fairly straightforward tea-time stroll from the road above Lee Green Reservoir. Me and the kids. The location of the trig is concealed by a wall... feels slightly like trespassing to get right up to it, though I'm not sure if that's the case or not. Trig in decent condition and views OK in most directions (apart from the wall, of course!)Nice views in particular looking in the direction of Extwistle Moor and Boulsworth Hill.

A splodgy walk up from Burnley on the right of way coming from Netherwood Farm. Was here in the area to attend Rob Woodall's 6000th (non pillar) flush bracket celebration. A great day was had by all!

Walked across from Marsden Heights trig on an overcast day. Boggy surroundings but trig easily found. Rescued a sheep that was trapped in a nearby fence.

Fields still full of sheep, now with lambs. Access is quite easy from the East and you can stay mostly out of view of the nearby farms, although I heard dogs barking.
