For years I've decided against a visit thinking the quarry and wind farms would compromise. Not at all, lovely spot, panoramic views across Greater Manchester to the Midlands. Found a layby near the garden centre/café on A56, followed later by a friendly (or greedy) herd of black sheep. First wheatears of the year.

HISTORY: Pillar built in May 1940 costing £9.14s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SE02/T17 in 1948. Levelled for height to Class 1 precision at tertiary standards during 1956. Last maintained by the OS in October 1979. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from south. Parked east side of Walmersey Old Road among other parked cars at SD809144, choosing not to wreck my suspension on the uneven cobbled surface. Walked this road northwards which continues as Bury Old Road to its end. Continued on the track ahead turning right at SD805164 which leads up steeply up hill. Direct route to summit across open moor, mapped as access land. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with asphalt. Flush bracket faces SSW, compass measurement 195°. Four sight holes open, innards filled with debris. Full 360° panoramic view.

Concerned that the nearby quarry is gradually expanding and therefore the pillar may eventually be lost.

Pushed bike up byway from main road to West at traffic lights. Early part jumbled stone, but then became a cobbled surface. Walked up by quarry edge track with lots of loose rocks, but way down easier in parallel field with styles at both ends. descended to South different lane to South, which although residential and having a bus service has a long cobbled section.

Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. Route from east [A680] involves no real height gain. But the alternative ascent up the stony path from west [A56] is to be preferred - this route negates the need to cross the moor, which is often boggy.

Following good local knowledge, cheerfully given by young garage mechanic, ascended by stoney lane at the side of quarry. Crossed moor to trig; pleasantly suprised to see newly planted daffodil bulbs near the pillar. Must be someone's favourite spot? Views towards Peel Tower; good views all round.
