A great spot has that rugged feeling of the near urban while still being windy and moor swathed.

Looking back to Knowl, the marilyn of Hail Storm - done in the Summer - behind, walk back up the valley to the Edenfield Road in gathering dusk

Beside the mast, so easy to find. A sign at the northwest side says something about reclaiming the land here. I dont know. The small triglike structures to the east look as if they once had plaques on, but Im just guessing.

Out with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - and our route passed close enough for melch and myself to make a slight detour to visit this pillar. We approached from the right of way to the north and just took a well worn path to the top of the hill. Pillar in good condition. Extensive views but spoiled for me by its neighbouring mast and metal fencing.

Easy route up from the reservoir to the east along the off road vehicle tracks, trigs sat right next to the radio mast. Upon reaching the trig what had been poor weather turned even worse, driving wind & rain and with such any chance of even a modest view was nil. Another area that's suffering from the off road brigade.

Great views all around over Rochdale and up to Knowl Hill. I climbed up from the old quarry area to the East. There are a couple of strange concrete non-trigs close by (see photos), one at the bottom of the hill and one just off Knacks Lane about a quarter of a mile East, I don't know what they are.
