Revisit I arrived Gisburn 07.15 on the 280 Skipton to Preston bus which I boarded at Barnoldswick.I purchased an EasiDay GOLD (adult) 6.80 ticket,which I was going to use on my return to Gisburn to either visit Skipton or Clitheroe.I decided the weather was to good to miss being up on the moors,so opted to walk to Barnoldswick via Weets Hill.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS measurement. SITE VISIT: Approached from south. Parked in widenend gateway further east along north side of Coal Pitt Lane at SD837477. Pillar visible from road. Direct route from roadside gate to comms mast compound via tramline. Pillar relocated ~30m eastwards. Column and foundation block uprooted and then moved more than once. Still upright on foundation block and in good condition. Now beside southern edge of mast compound, visitor records and photographs indicate that this pillar was originally moved between 2000 and 2002 and subsequently turned by 90 between 2008 and 2010. GPS measurement confirms that the column originally stood 30m to the west on higher ground in open field and was therefore not moved to accommodate the mast as many think. Spider centre fitted with grey plastic disc by Jon Rouse, 23rd April 2000. Flush bracket now faces south ~ 179. Vented through sight hole on left face which now faces west. Near complete open skyline but for portion blocked by aerial.

Visible and easily accessible. I went up the field towards the radio mast from Coal Pit Lane. The trig point has obviously been uprooted and moved to make way for the mast. The whole base is now on the surface but apart from a slight lean the trig is in excellent condition. Plastic plug.

I approached this one from Gisburn via Moor Laithe on a family Sunday walk in very hot weather. Fortunately all but one field had already been mown. As mentioned below it appears the mast has nudged the trig off the top spot and left it looking a bit unsteady. Perhaps we're lucky its still upright.

First visit. To record FB number. Pillar completed 23rd April 1949 costing 11.15s.4d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SD96/10 within the Skipton block during 1951. Flush bracket S5392 was levelled for height in 1962. Last maintained by the OS in May 1976. I have reason to believe that this pillar has since been shifted eastwards by around 30m. Final trig on a week long holiday based at Bank Newton, SD909530.
