Logged this trig as part of a 3 trig walk from the Hapton inn. This was the second trig after Hameldon Common, then onto peel park in Accrington. Trig in good condition and good views. Boggy approach.

Didn't really take in too much of the view (as very knackered so hill probably underscored) on a very crisp sunny winter's day jog with frost still on the ground in the shade making the boggier areas of the hill a little less squelchy than normal. Old quarries on the N side of hill worthy of investigation.

HISTORY: Pillar built in May 1948 costing 13.1s.6d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SD74/3 within the Blackburn block during 1948. Levelled for height in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in October 1979. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from ESE. Parked to north side off yellow road at SD814285. Up via neighbouring Hameldon Common. Best to stick with the mapped paths to SD797284 from where an unmapped path leads up the SSE slope to the top. The 'shortcut' route across the deep tussocks is not to be recommended! Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open since ~2008. Flush bracket faces west, ~275 west. Vented through south sight hole. Full 360 panoramic view.

Sixth pillar of six visited on a cold but unhurried cycle ride from Todmorden to Burnley. Walk up not a classic but the summit area is agreeable enough to spend some time around and of course it is another HuMP.

I approached this one from the East having just bagged Hameldon Common. The climb up the grassy, tussocky side of Great Hameldon is quite tough, I was reduced to walking in places. Trig is on the flat hilltop.
