Sixth of seven trigs and feeling tired, overstretched myself a tad today. Slog of a walk from Revidge through fern and tough grass on a compass bearing SW down the valley side through bog to Averhill Farm. On to Upper Elkstone village then up the steep footpath on the other side past Hill House itself. Trig is in a great position with great views all round.

Sixth of seven trigs bagged today. And my fave of them all. Easy access through an open gate close to a rough bit of off road parking. Nice trig in elevated position, some erosion of ground around the base. If I could have seen the views I imagine they would have been fabulous, but it was a very, very misty day. Still some snow on the ground in places.

This isn't like me. Two-o'clock and my third trig point! I'm not usually setting off yet. Could have done more. Easy bag. OK views. But today has been a driving day. Happy motoring on Bing Crosby empty roads. What do you know. The route home takes me through Longnor and the Cheshire Cheese. Monday afternoon in December. The pub is not only open, the Landlady is serving fish'n'chips to three blokes, who retire to the dining room so that I can sip my pint by the log fire. Bliss. But it's not over. Pork and black pudding pie from the Post Office. These are truely happy days.

Took obvious track WSW from Blake Mere trig down to Middle Mills road and then followed this to The Mermaid. After taking in the view across to The Roaches I headed East along Leek Road to pick up the Hamps Way. Had intended to follow this to Lower Green Farm before cutting across to Hill House but I couldn't make out the PROW around Feltystitch and the ground was waterlogged. Instead, I retraced my steps back to Leek Road before taking Upper Elkstones and Breech Road round to the trig. Trig itself is easily accessed being located adjacent to a PROW. Everything in good order although original cap has been replaced with tarmac and not as resplendent white as the two other trigs visited earlier in the day. Ground rather eroded around the base. Views also less impressive and not a full 360 panorama. Continued due East then SE following PROWs to Ryecroft (which required more careful attention to my map than usual). A flock of sheep approached me as I made my way across to Townhead but they were far less intimidating than being charged by a herd of cows !! Finally followed the lane down to the B5053 and back into Warslow.

Asphalt plug. Hill House Farm. Peak District National Park. Effectively public, as virtually on the public footpath. The ascent from Lower Elkstone is very steep indeed. Much easier from the road on the other side [just a few yards].
