Parked at road end leading to weather station. Easy walk up path at side of road. Windy on top. Nice views. There was an old burntout renault clio 1.5dci at the top of road leading to the weather station. Used to own one of these.

Drove the lane to the locked gate. A helicopter was defending the trig, but I bagged it anyway, distracting it with constant withering fire, then sneaking round the weather station. (I hadn't enough stamina to go on to Great Hameldon. And it struck me that any trigpointing car driver who finds the gate unlocked, drives to the weather station, bags the trig, then sets off for Great Hameldon, risks the gate being padlocked when he gets back. Don't do it!!!)

Walked up the access road from Clow Bridge Reservoir, then north up the track to the east of the wall and stepped across the wire. There is a lot of very new fencing up here - I wandered over to the northern mast to see if access was possible from there. There are no gates or stiles into the access land from here.

Approached from Great Hameldon via boggy moorland paths. The easiest way to this trig is to drive to New Laithe Farm SD814285 wherethere is just enough parking for two cars then up the private road to the weather station. Step over the fence behind the weather station directly onto the concrete trig base without getting muddy feet.
