After a pleasant morning and against the weather forecast it was starting to rain as I left the bike at the summit of the Colne - Hebden road. Decided to keep on anyway. Soon busy evading muddiest patches on ROW to wall and gate. Retrospectively, I should have kept straight on and then bared diagonally to right to gate through wall on next hill top, but I took a more roundabout and wetter route! Not recommended in cycle shoes!

Hiked up to this one from Colne after bagging the Trig and monument on Shelfield Farm. Nearly got knocked down by two off road motorcyclists, seemingly this moor is used as a racing track and on Saturdays according to a sign, clay pigeon shooting. So beware when heading to this one! Went on to bag the Trig on Boulsworth Hill in warm sunshine before heading back to Colne. A tough but great hike. You can follow a detailed write up and route of this hike, by typing Fell Finder into Google.

Relatively easy to access although not actually on a foot path but near enough to a couple to make possible to get to it. Highly visible too. The pillar is in good condition. Views are extensive but the immediate area is spoiled by pillar being used as a turning point on wahte appears to be a motor cross course.

Approached from the Widdop Road via the ROW at Rapes Clough, as The Hungry Caterpillars say the OS mapping is inaccurate. The ROW forks approx 1/2 mile from the road however there is no path veering NW to the field corner (as indicated on the map). The path heading SW appears to lose a lot of height with a hefty re-climb needed. The options are - where the ROW 'forks' on the map is a broken wall, walk a further 25 yards of so to reach the crest of the rise - directly ahead you can see a field wall with a 'gate' - the trig is 50 yards behind that - you can A): Hoik straight across the open moor to the gate - wouldn't recommend it myself, you'll know why when you view it. B): Head across the open moor in a NW direction aiming for the stile in the field corner (which you can't see at this point) - wouldn't recommend that either or C): return to the broken wall and follow it north, on it's eastern side, along a sheep trail to reach the full wall south of Reive Edge, turn left (west) and follow the wall along more sheep trails to reach the stile in the field corner slighly NE of the trig - it's boggy in places but it's much better than the open moor. The field the trig is in is easy enough to traverse. After all that waffle, it wasn't a good day weather wise - visibility was poor but it was a good hike up from (and returning to) Hebden Bridge. No cars, on foot.

This trig seems to me to epitomise the best aspects of trigpointing. Against any objective criteria you would not come up with Extwistle Moor - it is off the main Pennine chain, there are higher tops near by, and the trig isn't even on the highest point. However, it was just a first-class stroll from the road at Widdop - I had the moors to myself. The day had started grim, but improved to sunshine and showers. Fortunately the shower was over Hoof Stone Heights, and I had the sun. The trig is in great condition, although the paint is getting a little faded. The plug is intact. And the views are excellent, with Pendle, Lad Law, Ingelborough, Pen-y-ghent and Great Whernside, along with other closer hills to admire.
