Revisit. Previous visit was from west. Didn't actually touch the trig, as access involves climbing a wall. This time we came up from Long Lane to the north east. Gate to climb, but no walls. Not access land. This trig is in pristine condition.

On a day walking round the nearby reservoirs with my mates, Tracker Dog and Rubber Ball, who indulge in my trig bagging. Parked near the 'Cross' on Elnor Lane and walked to the trig, it's best to take the gated track instead of the FP. The trig is behind the TV mast buildings and you are rewarded with great views, so we stopped for a cuppa to soak them in. On S to revisit the trig on Shining Tor.

Parked by the gate with the threatening sign and headed up the path and over. A hell of a mist up there. I then skidded all the way down the mentally steep Ridge lane to Combs on the ice.

My second log using the Android app. Parked at Combs Reservoir and walked straight up the hill from the gate on Long Lane as logged by Bridgeman. No trespassing signs this way and no walls to climb. Came down the same way and continued onto Chinley Churn through Hilltop and Brierley Green.

2/3 Took the Mrs Moo Cow route but met a number of cows with calves and bully close by in the wood. Accessed eventually by climbing over a wall into the trig field. Excellent all round views today though quite windy. Took Pete Boggs route back, mush easier and cattle free.

Parked on verge by gate up to TV mast but followed footpath up alongside. On reaching the end of trees, turned north over fallen fence & up through young xmas trees to top corner of the wall, where there is a small gate. 20m up the mast field the wall has fallen allowing access through to the trig point.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Private. Owner unknown. This is one hell of a big steep hill, towering over the community of Horwich End, although nearly half the height is made on the road. From Long Lane [track], cross the wall into the big field with the TV mast at the top, then handrail the wall on the left uphill. Cross this just before the mast & the trig is then easily accessed. Deservedly just within the Peak District National Park.

Two years it took me to do this one! (OK. Failed in 2010 because I headed south from the Beehive. Still, gave me a good excuse to come back to that fab pub.) Once on the right track it was straightforward. Took the footpath up a heavily overgrazed field to Thorny Lee and only jumped onto the TV mast footpath at its over threatening gate. Do so hope that the mast itself isn't protected by CCTV. :) Good views if a little misty, and the reservoir a little toolow. Back the same way, but took the road past Spire Hollins this time.

Set out by footpath then cut across - wet and muddy. Much more pleasant on return using mast access track. Worth walk for views.

Thought i would be good and pay attention to the private signs on the gate of the track that leads to the television mast and the pillar ,tried to access through the woods but with dog in tow the fences proved a pain,so tied dog to tree and crossed the field.Good hazy views ,pillar just beyond stone wall if approaching from the SE .

looked easy on the map but they do not want you to get to it, footpath next to track and then some serious trepressing to get there with warning and signs telling you that you are not on a footpath, still sometimes these things have just got to be done.

Best approach is to leave Long Lane (track) at SK025793 over gate. Walk up across field to wall then left uphill over next gate to reach trig. This avoids the need to climb any wall. The land however is private.
