Set out at 12.10 through Old Glossop and east along Doctor's Gate to climb to Pennine Way. Helicopter being used to spray hillsides. Turned North to Hern Clough and then West passing aircraft wreck to pillar. A bright sunny day. Back tracked to Pennine Way to head for Cock Hill.

From Cock Hill pillar on a bearing of 050 to a small cairn at the 481m spot height where an Emirates A380 passed overhead on its approach into Manchester. I then turned N, soon intersecting with the Pennine Way above Torside Clough where I was treated to spectacular views across the reservoir and on to Black Hill. Followed the Pennine Way beside Torside Clough round to Bleaklow Head and The Wain Stones. God it's bleak up there but it's not a bad place to be when the sun is out and it's dry underfoot. From the Wain Stones I headed directly across the peat on a bearing of *** to the pillar at Higher Shelfstones. After the featureless peat hags and groughs of Bleaklow you are suddenly rewarded with dramatic views along Doctors Gate and beyond. Trig ever so slightly damaged on two corners (outer layer of plaster worn away - see photos) and cap replaced with tarmac. Descended across the western flank of Gathering Hill where I saw a few mountain hares. Crossed the brook just west of Urchin Clough then climbed to meet Doctors Gate, following this all the way back to Old Glossop.

Parked at the top of Snake Pass, walked along the Pennine Way to Bleaklow Head before cutting across via Hern Stones to the trig. A lovely walk and the trigs position is just great. Amazing views as the sun started to sink and wonderful light. The heat and light breeze made it a wonderful place to sit for an hour. I was going to stay for the proper sunset, but I had no torch and walking over the peat wasn’t going to be fun in the dark. Got back to the car with 20 mins light left. A fantastic day!

I started the day with an early morning walk over Bleaklow, having stayed the night in the shooting cabin on Ronksley Moor. The views from there were extensive and I could see far into Yorkshire. The conditions were just as favourable at the Higher Shelfstones trig too as Britain was experiencing a mini heat wave in early April. I descended into Glossow, on my way towards the Werneth Low trig pillar.

Was with my son for our first big hike together, primarily to show him the Superfortress wreck site and the trig for me, a repeat visit. Got to the site by the easier route of following the Pennine Way north from the A57 for 2km the heading west for 1km (about) then 5 mins south to the trig. I give it 10 for the historical value and tremendous views; I must admire the people who chose the trig sites and those who built them. The Glossop route suggested earlier sounds good. I've been visiting the wreck for a number of years and it's sad to see fewer remains as souvenir hunters hack off bits so desecrating a protected site and hence speed up nature's erosion...

Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. From Old Glossop, proceed along Doctor's Gate path to White Clough, then ascend directly to the trig. This is very steep & hard work, & scrambly higher up, but a thrilling route. The stones themselves, above the 2000 ft contour, provide a tremendous location for the pillar. Reputedly the best viewpoint on Bleaklow.

The perfect couple of hours out. Up over Yellow Slacks with the rain coming to an end. A hopeful wander amongst the groughs before stumbling across the pillar. (How does that happen?) Then across the little used far edge of Crooked Clough before the downhill delights of Doctors's Gate. Now, I'm not a conspirasy theorist, but my car clocked 100,000 miles and I meet Winker Whetton at the top of Doctor's Gate on the same day. Coincidence?

Amazing views and, of course, close to the crash site of the Super Fortress which is well worth visiting. Quite a sobering experience to see all the wreckage and memorial crosses laid out everywhere. Walked along the Pennine Way from the A57, then turned off before reaching Bleaklow Head and struck across the boggy terrain. Sapping final ascent, but totally worthwhile!

Each to their own I suppose. I saw one pennine way walker holding up an umbrella in the rain so that he could read as he walked along. It looked to me as though it was the just published latest instalment of the harry potter saga.

Tarmac plug; one corner at top of pillar clipped. Steep ascent up gully from SW with mist clearing. Would feel very isolated were it not for the sight and sound of traffic over the Snake Pass.

We found the wreckage of the plane first and then saw the trig about 200m away. It's surprising that it took forty years for the memorial to be erected - and rather negligent too. The trig is in good condition and painted white. Fantastic views in all directions. Tarmac plug.

Bagged whilst looking for the B-29 wreckage, which we didn’t find. I know exactly where it is now though, and we must only have missed it by metres... well, it was misty, as can be seen from the pic. A lovely summers day… NOT!

The rocks in the picture give the wrong impression of this place – it is very boggy if approaching from the north. That said, the mist had lifted to leave a beautiful sunny day with great views. The graffiti on the rocks under the trig is said to be from the early 19th century. Painted white but only on the east and west sides. Concrete plug. There was a spider on the spider! Things got better still later – Wales won the Grand Slam!

A hard slog from Old Glossop, but worth it. The "easier" route is from the top of the Snake road.

Visited on a frosty day when the ground was nicely frozen and there were no nasty peat hags to cross. Bleaklow Head was visited on the same date, both being "Nuttall's" that needed bagging.
