Despite the grey glower a fine view out to the flatter lands. Hard feeling of industry mixed with glorious meadows. OS suggests a site of antiquity next to the concrete pillars of remnant works/WW2 structures.

Logged whilst on a cycle out from Parsley Hey CP down to Carsington Water via Tissington and the lovely little village of Bradbourne, returning via Midshires way and High Peak trail, approx 47k. We had to carry the bikes over two stiles using the PROW opposite the quarry works but easy enough to cycle up to the pillar. Good views out over Carsington on a reasonably clear day - pity about the wind turbines.

From Slipper Low back along country lanes to Longcliffe. Straight across the crossroads and up onto High Peak Trail after passing beneath bridge. Lovely sweet scent whilst on the trail and some welcome shade whilst passing through a cutting. Hopped over wall when alongside what I guess is the entrance to a mine. Long, slow climb zig-zagging up the hill on the hottest day of the year so far. Great location for a trig with good views across to Carsington Water but spoilt by constant noise from the stone plant at the foot of the hill. Pillar is in good order but original cap replaced with plastic. Rested for a while in shade of the boulders before descending to Manystones Lane. Returned to Brassington via PROW at SK239549 and Wirksworth Dale.

Visible and easily accessible just off footpath. Pillar in good order but has plastic plugs. Views difficult to judge as we were shrowded in early morning mist.
