Visited this trigpoint along with a tour round the Cononley lead mine. Great panoramic views including Great Whernside, Cowling Pinnacle and Boulsworth hill.

Called in at Manor House Farm while out walking a 10 mile circular route from Cononley. Asked farmers permission to visit trig and take photo's. Not a problem. Earlier in the day we had walked a short section of the Pennine Way and meet a young man (Toby) who is walking from Land's End to John a Groats, he is on his 35th day out of hopefully 70 days to complete. Good luck .

Being caught out in a downpour with gale force winds in addition made this one more than a little bit traumatic. Approach from the west (Little Gib footpath) is pretty straightforward.

Used ROW from road to South. Man by house was friendly and directed me onward around building and through old tractor graveyard. Fortunately, the vicious dogs were chained or in cages. Veered around to right when out of sight, and clear way up. Returned to road different way directly down through old quarrying area. Last of 8 ticks for the day on a ride out from Haworth YHA.

Parked in Cononley and used the footpath passed Town Head. Then aimed for the chimney with 2 tricky wall crossings to get to the trig with Martin Richardson.

A slight trespass this I suppose but the easiest way up is along the wall-back up from the ROW next to the old Cononley Lead Mine - you're pretty much out of view that way. The walls are a bit precarious here so take care but there are a few fallen parts for access. Trig is over the wall from the mine's smelting chimney and is in very good condition - on a plinth, recently painted and with its original plug. Came across a giant puffball in the next field. Good views into upper Airedale.

Hiked up from Cononley Railway Station, and had to climb over a few dry stone walls to get to the thing. Great views, went on to bag the Trig at Pinhaw on a circular walk. You can follow this walk on my blog by tapping Fell Finder into Google!

Climbed up from Cononley, using one of the walls as cover and trying not to disturb the many cows in the area. Bit trespassy really. Saw the mentioned motorbikes, but no problem. Good views. 2nd visit using "RoW" through Manor farm which was a mudfest and felt like I shouldnt be there. But noone about cept said dogs, so no problem.

Approached from bottom end of Lothersdale Lane. Scrambling bikes only seen on way back. Trig in very good condition with OS cap still there. Main point of interest of this hill is 100m away - smelting chimney & flue from old Cononley lead mine. It is possible to enter this chimney via a gap in the flue 50m from the base of the chimney - a head torch would be useful. Underground bagging!

Not really accessible nor visible. Basically the approach can be seen from Manor House Farm and would need a couple of wall climbs if the trespass option is taken. I therefore went to the farm, avoiding a cunning Rotweiler, and asked. The request was greeted with a No but fortunately also with a why? My charm and/or explanation must have won the day as I was directed to an open gate into a pasture which led me directly to the pillar which is protected on one side by a wall and not immediatel visible until you get quite close to it. Some good views of the surrounding countryside. Pillar is in good condition with original plug with raised lettering. Was prepared for the Rotweiler on the way back!

Chimney from the trig Due to collecting a gashed hand in the line of duty, photo session was rushed.

Couldn't visit the trig today, although it was visible. The Access Land John is talking about has been 'wasted/trashed/wrecked', take your pick, by morons on motor cross bikes. They were in full flow today - about half a dozen of them, along with someone from Manor Farm in a Land Rover with the result that the field and the one to the NE are a quagmire - I'm hoping it's a weekend thing & will revisit midweek sometime. Waymarking around this farm is non-existant. Possible access from the NW, just NE of Great Gib farm - where the gate is missing between walls you can climb the hill out of sight of the farm houses, you will need to climb a couple of walls (or do a detour to find the fallen sections) but access is possible.

Walked in from the N (town head) then went out W. I did a lot of wall hugging on this one but "exposed" myself to visit the chimney and the trig. Big walls to hide the view from the trig.

I approached from the South from Lothersdale Road on the footpath two fields to the East of the farm and across what is now a bit of access land, then snook across to the trig when out of view of the farm. The trig is next to a wall and remains in very good condition. The old chimney in the next field is the flue for the smeltmills of the nearby lead mine, long since disused.

Dodgy access through the farm as previously noted. There were dogs barking but chained up and a good collection of clapped out tractors etc. We headed east a bit coming back and dropped down onto a track that comes out onto the road a couple of fields away from the farm track. Plug with raised lettering.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 31st May 1948 cost not on record. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station SD96/T12 in the Skipton secondary block. Flush bracket S4632 was levelled for height in 1962. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1976.
