Parked opposite quarry and then nipped over first gate to the north. Farm track arcs round the hill and then aim for highest field corner. Did my good deed for the day to the farmer by tidying up plastic animal feed supplement buckets in the mowing field and managed to get covered in watery treacle

nice easy walk as we parked at the gate to the track and walked up this and then over the field to the trig. a bit boggy underfoot as snow has started to melt but pleasant enough.

Parked on the North /South yellow, West of the TP Initially started to walk up the edge of the wood S of the TP but reverted to hoping over the wall into the field, much easier. At the top of the field, wall + b/.w fence to negotiate and then short walk up to the TP. Views over Youlgreave Church and Cricket field to the North

-parked in the layby opposite the sealed entrance to the quarry, west of the trig. I climbed up the steep side of the field next to the quarry/wood and hopped a wall. It's quite exposed if you're trespassing.

Parked at (53.09.41 1.41.27) and followed the mrs mow cow route through the quarry and back down the field needs one fence crossing. Easier to go up and down the field through the gate further down the lane. Best trigpoint of the day so far with views back to Youlgrave.

Third time lucky !! From Elton along Gratton Lane then Mawstone Lane. Climbed metal gate in layby immediately after Black Nursery Plantation. Followed perimeter of field round to sheep pens which I used to then climb over the barb wired wall to reach trig. Pillar in good order with original metal cap. Average views.

Second time of asking and a second refusal but at least I could see it this time! Approached from same direction as previous attempt but a flock of sheep were in the narrow strip of woodland. Decided to follow perimeter of the adjoining fields so as to avoid stressing any sheep which may have been in lamb. Within 100 metres of the trig but the wall I needed to cross was so unstable that just touching it was dislodging stones. Hence I decided not to try and climb over and instead turned back. That might just be the best decision I make this year as shortly after I had returned to the PROW a shooting party came through the wood !! Heading over to Elton Common. Locals in Youlgreave were as friendly as always.

From Long Rake trig via Middleton and Hopping Farm. Picked up the track from Mawstone Farm into a narrow wooded area. Stopped to consult my map when a farmer checking his flock of sheep suddenly appeared. He proceeded to 'helpfully' point me back onto the footpath believing that I was lost. Decided to go along with that rather than admit to trespassing in search of a 4ft lump of concrete !! Encountered a very skitish cow on the way back down the hill towards Youlgreave. Having used a romer and my map I now realise I was less than 200m away. Bugger !! Will have to try again another day - at least I now know exactly where I'm heading.

Climbed up past Mawstone farm along RoW and down to the narrow wooded area SE of the pillar. This way there was only one wall to climb over. Pillar itself is hidding behind wall near an opening. Views pretty good.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Private. Peak District National Park [beautiful Lathkill-Bradford dales country]. Located at junction of 4 walls, in SW quadrant. Steeply up public footpath past Mawstone Farm [likely owner], then follow tracks [not RoW] south & west. Cross rusty old gate & proceed to top of field & through open gateway to find pillar in field corner. Return to track & walk south west to soon reach road via gate beside Black Nursery Plantation.

A bit trespassy this one, parked in a small layby opposite a decrepit shack with a gate and no entry signs at 207627, walked north along the road and climbed over the gate (watch out for the barbed wire) and climbed up the hill around the walled wooded area. A bull made his presence known but he didnt bother us too much.
