2/3. Walked across from White Edge, having walked East from that trig I picked up the track running N-S up the small river valley. Interesting markers on the side of the track in various locations, continued up past the old decommissioned reservoir eventually crossing B6054 at the white gate. Then heading NE up to the Trig. All metal work intact, very good panoramic views.

Easy enough walk up from the gas terminal thing in the south. Huge numbers of people out and about for a mid-week January day. But I suppose it is the first bit of sunshine this year. Nearly made a mess of the reversal. Is navigating getting harder, or am I getting older? Fox House before the drive home. Again, quite crowded. Good on 'em!

Parked in layby at SK 2776 7812 and after finding the Barbrook surface block (TP0195) in the layby I set out over the (full width) gate instead of the 'passenger' gate and out onto Totley Moor. Initially however I mistakenly headed E and found myself in knee-high heather laden with water after the recent rainfall. With wet trousers I realised my mistake and turned N, eventually finding my way to a broken wall and a grassy track along/beside it. Along here the pillar came into view. I turned left along a muddy track and then through a small patch of heather to reach the pillar. Great views again over Sheffield. FB faces NE; NE sighthole plugged (grass growing over it), all others open. The sun just tried to poke through the thick cloud as I left. On the return I found the path marked on my Landranger map which towards the bottom took me through some very wet marshland adding to my moist misery! I should have consulted an Explorer map and used the track that CURRYSCRIM used four days later!

The last of a five trigpoint walk including Black Plantation, Ox Stones, Ringinglow and Totley. Fantastic all round views from this desolate moorland trigpoint. The sun came out allowing me to celibate my two hundredths trigpoint. People may say what's the point of trigpointing, but its taken me through some great countryside that I would otherwise never have dreamed of visiting Flask Edge being a perfect example. Continued back to Blacka Plantation to complete the 13 mile walk.
