fabulous sunset. Good to finally get out to this Oldham Trigged TuMP summit. finally got to this Oldham UA TuMP at last, for sunset from the SW on ROW and for the second time today across a field with cows, calves and a bull, which growled menacingly as I passed by 50metres away, cautiously. On my return after a glorious sunset two cows and calves had come nearer across the route I'd walked up. I went over to the other far side of the field and yet again the bull let out a continuing low growl, but didn't move at all. Phew!

HISTORY: Pillar completed 17th April 1940 costing £4.2s.9d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SD80/T51 during 1945. Levelled for height to Class 1 precision at tertiary standards in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in October 1979. SITE VISIT: Approached from southwest. Parked in Brellafield Drive, SD928099. Followed RoW along single track Moss Gate Road then onto mapped RoW at SD928101. This leads all the way to the trig. In grazing field on RoW, the mapped fence beside the trig is no longer there. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces SSE, compass measurement 159°. All sight holes open, innards filled with debris. Full 360° panoramic view.. Part of a 24 trig stint around the northern outskirts of Manchester.

Another of those "edgeland" trigs, p[ark at Jubilee Colliery car park - up through the surprisingly pleasant woods then to the cows - who have made the field suitably entertaining to squelch across. Great views from West to Southern Pennines

From B6194 road to SW and rough lane, then public f/p up beck bottom. Trig in pastoral surroundings. OS cap in place, lightly indented letters. Has this trig been moved, or a wall removed? Recent photos don't look anything like pre-2010 ones.

Continuing on a theme. (The Jubilee looked a bit, well, naff.) So different to the last one. Some very unromantic high farmland, but - baby horses (by the score), baby dogs, baby sheep, baby hens, even baby donkeys! Awwwwwww! Then called in at that place in Dobcross that has a different name on the sign to that on the doors. Good pint. Or two. Note: Can't comment if the pillar has been moved - but the wall certainly has. Astride a mass of stones now.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Top damaged & pillar leaning. Private. Owner unknown [there doesn't seem to be an actual Hey Farm - nearest is Bryney Heyes]. In muddy field - no real sign of nearby RoW on the ground; either wall removed or trig actually moved. Redeemed by Pennine backdrop.

Open pasture site, next to wall, but with excellent views all round. Good condition, original plug, Public. Tow horses nearby to make a good picture, and a farm labourer to ask if the pillar had moved in the last 70 years! He'd seen other going up to it, so Trigpointing is now catching on!
