Parked in lay-by near the access point for Alsop Wood looked after by the National Trust. Then an interesting route through numerous fields to locate the trig at the Tump summit. Many of the fields had recently been covered in slurry. I had to take a different route back to avoid a tractor spreading more slurry.

Cold, breezy, bright day for great walking with my mate, Tracker Dog, along the Tissington Trail with a diversion to this trig. Walked through fields but had to climb over one wall to get to the trig, good clear views W and S. Good spot to have sarnies and tea.

Parked in the layby on the A515 (SK163570) and worked my way through the fields to the trig without any wall climbing.

Access from A515, just South of the NT plantation. Metal gate in the wall open on my visit, follow up the track and first three fields have access points at wall boundaries, but ended up having to hope over two walls with secondary B/Wire. kept to the perimeter walls as the grass crop was looking ready to harvest. Managed to remain undetected but could imagine this being one where the farmer is most likely not to be too far away. Had to beat down the grass for FB log. Plug filled.

I quite enjoyed winding my way across the fields to this one - like an adult version of hide and seek with a trig pillar as the prize !!

I felt like a ball bearing in a plastic maze game going to this one though the series of fields, ftrying to avoid wall hopping. Got there eventually but sank through the snow at one stage into a freezing cold puddle underneath at one stage and got a boot full of water. Spare pair in the car fortunately.

Parked at layby/gateway on A515 just before the plantation. As others have said, it's a bit of a weave through the fields. I legged it so the sheep didn't follow me thinking it was feeding time. Not one of the greatest.

Maps suggest that it's on the NE side of the wall - it's not, it's on the SW side. Easy approach from the layby on the A515, with only one low wall to hop over. Used the opportunity to visit the nearby Hawks Low tumulus/ringbarrow while I was up there.

Well it was either another day sitting in the sun or getting out for a bit of trigpointing. Id got a list of 11 that Id not logged above Ashbourne. Hawks Low was the second Id driven by Reynards farmers were making hay in the field near the pillar and using farm machinery on the single track road so I gave it a miss. Parked in the layby on the A515 (53.06.37 1.45.24) and negotiated the stone walls and barbed wire to the pillar. Dont think you can get there without jumping at least two obstacles. Good but unspectacular views on a clear day.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked in a large 'lay-by' at the southern end of the woodland on the A515. From here we went through a number of gates and gateways plus the od wall crossing to get to the pillar. In good condition but the original plug has obviously been replaced by an asphalt one some time in the past.

Asphalt plug. Private. ?Hawkslow Farm, although trig station named from the low [tumulus] itself. Peak District National Park. Farmland not easily accessed from NT Alport Moor Plantation. Better via roadside gate just to south. Zigzag across several fields via broken walls & open gateways to find trig.

Attempted this one on a walk and tried an approach from White Cliff Farm but put off by aggressive farm alsatian.Retraced my steps and ascended from the lay-by on the A515. Excellent all round views from a footpath less (?) trig point.

On open farm land, about 300 meters from the low itself. I had to outwit several fields of ferocious cows to reach the trig from the A515. No paths to this one. Good, stone plug. Private
