Followed a wall up from Waterswallows Rd knowing the pillar was under the line of pylons. Just got to the top when the farmer came striding towards me. Expected a telling off but it turned out he was checking his heifers and seemed pleased to talk about Buxtons adverse micro-climate he had to endure. Views nowhere as good as Corbar HIll

The last of our Buxton town trigs, and a nice easy one to bag. Picked a grand afternoon for it, and the surrounding scenery looked gorgeous. On the way back, we got on the chat with the landowner of the section of path closest to Bux, a nice guy who was busy clearing the path, as he didn't like the thought of any walkers being stung by nettles...really lovely to encounter a considerate landowner!

Easy trig, second of the day; walked up Waterswallows Road and Green Lane and nipped into the field. Many dry stone walls are in poor state, no problems getting through. Trig is in good condition, it looks like it's been made with quality chippings. No outstanding views, however. On to Corbar Hill trig in Buxton.

Continued North from Black Edge, descending to Cowlow Lane via Lady Low. Passed through Dove Holes and then along Longridge Lane to PROW at SK085758. Took the track beside Waterswallows Quarryto Daisymere Farm then headed SW along PROW. No need to climb walls to reach the trig - immediately after passing through a kissing gate there is an ungated entrance to the field in which the pillar resides. Pillar is in good condition although sight holes are just below ground level. Least impressive views of the three today and shame about the pylons for company.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Private. Owner unknown. From Fairfield, take Waterswallows Rd to Waterswallows Mews, then follow the public footpath. Trig soon spotted up to left. Very easy access, as field walls broken down or non-existent.
