Walked up from Crowden on circular route to take in Hey Edge pillar on return. Flat featureless terrain - except for the pillar! Painted brilliantly white on a large circular dry-stone plinth - a sight for sore eyes. Cap missing, composite plug; LHD side sight hole open. There is a pronounced lean to the pillar, subsidance of the plinth will probbaly result in tears at some point in the future. As mentioned - featureless moorland views.

Walked up from Crowden via Laddaw rocks and found the trig no problem, the day cleared after threatening rain to give fine views. It's years since I've been here, originally it was a boggy mess to get to and the trig surrounded by bog for yards around and now it's landscaped! Strange it's called Holme Moss when the site is named Black Hill on OS maps. On S to the 'redundant' trig, now marked pillar on the map.

Walked up from Hey Edge Pillar across Hey Moss - Still small pockets of snow in the gully's North of West End Moss. Nice day but cold West wind. Been past this trig on two previous occasions, once when doing the Pennine Way walking North/South direction, it was a 28 miler on our last day. the other on a circular out of Crowdon clockwise via Laddow rocks - both pre trig log days - hence todays visit.

Bagged this one 'Black Hill' rather than Holme Moss - on a circular walk from Greenfield, taking in Alphin Pike, Featherbed Moss and Saddleworth Trigs. Got soaked on way back, tough old slog due to the peat bogs and high tufted grass. You can follow a detailed route map and write up of this walk by tapping Fell Finder into Google!

A superb walk along the Pennine Way from Crowden spoilt only by sound of clay pigeon shooting across Longendale and jet roar overhead of planes on approach to Manchester Airport. I generally prefer the White Peak but would highly recommend this area of the Dark Peak. Just don't venture this way in high wind, icy conditions or poor visibility because the path is perilously close to the cliff edge in places. The pillar is leaning somewhat and is starting to crack on the top hence recorded as slightly damaged. Scenery from here not as good as on the route up - just featureless moorland. Had intended to return via PROW across Westend Moss to take in the pillar at Hey Edge but the ground was waterlogged and I'm not a fan of bog hopping at the best of times. Will have to visit this one another day direct from Crowden.

with son Jamie, Toby and his girlfriend Florie and dog Ben-Ji. Warm blue skies and very few wispy clouds. Followed stake-marked peaty f/p from WNW,just like Pergrinus Rob, only to discover there's a paved path from the Meltham direction and despite it being pretty dry underfoot there was still a place where we unavoidably got wet feet. Gave up after 10 mins previous evening at 9 pm after realising terrain and distance would make it a foolish epic without headtorches, but watched a glorious red ball sunset. Had logged this marilyn summit as visited before in March or April 1972 on 'Four Inns venture scout walk as this was our route though had no full memory of whether we actually passed by the trig pillar. S this was a definite confirmation visit and first tick for Jamie in RHB

Hard climb up the pennine way to get on the ridge then took in Black Chew head en route to Black Hill. Weather closed in once we were on the ridge and views were limited. Trig has an impressive stone built base. The route back was riduculously boggy and hard to follow. The heavens then opened with a driving wind and I got soaked to the skin. It was so extreme I actually enjoyed it!

Plastic plug. White trig atop unusual cairn plinth & noticeably leaning backwards. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. Fine walk from Hey Edge, across vast empty upland. Approach to trig somewhat boggy. Right on Pennine Way & can be reached by this route from Crowden, but the path is long & sometimes rough going. A.k.a. Black Hill - pre-1974 this was the Cheshire county top.

Trig 3/5 Ackworth to Mam Tor Walk. After leaving the Kirklees Way to join the Pennine Way heading south. I completed the PW in 2000 and remember the hell that was getting to this trig through the peat bog morass. How things change! Now tamed by a paved track, the peat morass is showing signs of recovery, so it is better for the hill I suppose, but something of the challenge is now gone forever. Still, this is the highest bit of land you can see from where i live and will always be special for the years of looking up to it from afar. Now completed again on a long hike with friends so cool. Where West Yorkshire meets Derbyshire, views to die for if clear.

Walked up from Crowden along the Pennine Way, with a particular highlight of the long plod being Laddow Rocks which were spectacular on this fine sunny day! Final stretch up to Black Hill summit and its slightly wonky trig point was a bit featureless, but still worthwhile. Trig is very clean and in good condition, sitting atop a cairn-like cluster of stones. Returned by the same route.

Three interpid walkers at the summit of Black Hill!

Well thank goodness the Schools are back and the sun can come out. Fabulous drive along the A635 - the crags on the right make it feel we have mountains around here - but not so good walking down from the top car park to the Isle Of Skye. Still, hard surface soon over. Wrong. Flags best part of the way to the top. Still, better than the Black Hill of old. Correct. But for those who long for intermitant paths and deep, deep bog, the route leading off to the right and back down to the car park will be a treat. Pillar itself was OK, but it's mount makes climbing up for a hug risk unintentional vandalism.

Approached from Hey Edge pillar and Tooleyshaw Moss, very soggy and quite boggy in places, but not as bad as I expected to be honest. With the cloud layer engulfing it, all I could see for a while was the stone plinth - the pillar being white on white. Suitably impressive pillar for the highest point in the West Riding.

vgc but leaning a bit. Plastic plug. Dry stonework presumably conceals concrete base. Followed stake-marked peaty f/p from WNW, to discover there's a paved path from the Meltham direction (big layby, burger van..). Mine was quieter I guess - summit fairly busy on a fine Oct Sun a.m. Curious undulating wasteland, with peat hags gone, a few pools, and grass regrowing in vicinity of trig.

Black Hill, done on a round trip from Marsden up the Wessenden valley (low route) and down the Wessenden Valley (high route). The trig's obviously been relocated to sit directly on the Pennine Way, sits at a bit of a tilt. Yes it's bleak and barren up here on the plateau and veering off the paved Pennine Way may be a bit of a challenge but we (me and my wife) visited during the frost and it was OK. No cars, On foot.

Plastic plug; no 'S' prefix on the FB number. Easy ascent up a flagged path from the 'Isle of Skye'. Had expected this to be a passive station but theres no plaque. The trig looks a bit odd plonked on top of the cairn and its leaning slightly. Old Pennine Way guide books show the base of the pillar level with the surrounding area; later photos show a 2' high plinth exposed. I assume that the difference is due to erosion and that the cairn is now cladding around the plinth. But alternatively, maybe the trig was relocated when noone was looking.

Like The Cheviot, notorious for peat.. Once struggled through the bog only to beable to return easily as the peat had frozen while I was at the pillar. Now tamed by slabs I believe. The number is a 29xx..I have no log of the number, but a lot of the 29xx plates are without the "S" A long survey history , the soldiers who lumped it were OS soldiers. Cheshire county top.

Overcast and very misty. The Pennine Way (which I'm following)was soggy but generally good underfoot up to the Soldiers Lump trig which is found in the centre of some squelchier peat. Trig is approx a yard in the air on supporting rocks. The Pennine Way heading north-west from the trig is a walk you can only recommend to your worst enemy.

Black Hill is a much misunderstood and reviled peak, largely because (a) the PW takes the worst possible line over it and (b) Wainwright got stuck in a bog here and never forgave it! Try the route from the car park by the transmitter to the summit. A superb short walk with a touch of compass work to spice it and, if you're on track, an aircraft crash site.

Reterospective log whilst on Pennine Way. Fears allayed on that day. A morasse of peat, the only dry firm footing said the books. Not a bit of it. Good walk up from Crowden in pleasant sunshine over bouncy peat. No paved path then.

Done whilst doing the pennine way. There was no footpath management then, just soft black peat
