Abandoned a search for this trig (it appeared on a Christmas card) due to very frisky horses. Not so frisky today. A notice is on the wall near the ponds "No access", sod that it's open access land. Very sad to see it "discarded" and somehow a reflection of how we live. Johnny (JRT) had a "lift" back to Chinley. 2/3 for the colour green, just so much vegetation at the moment. Rich and lush!

Hill fog giving way to some glorious stormy skies. Park near Butchers Piece, an old walking ground and nice to come visit this sadly pummelled trig. Fly past of fieldfares, last few leaves on the beech trees and the puffballs blackening.

1 of 2 trigs walking with my mate, Rubber Ball. Exploring W side of Kinder N of Hayfield, and been wanting to visit Lantern Pike. Good walking on what started to be a fine day and found the trig easily. Went on to the viewpoint on top of Lantern Pike itself, with tremendous views all round. Well worth the visit. Off to Cown Edge Rocks trig, weather turning murky.

Circular walk from Rowarth via Robin Hood's Picking Rods, Cown Edge, Knarrs and Lantern Pike on a mixed weather day of sunshine and showers with a cool breeze. Also tried to find adjacent surface block; as others, failed to do so. Good view of the Kinder Plateau from the Pike. GR taken whilst standing on toppled pillar.

The last of my surviving Derbyshire Trig pillars to be logged. This pillar was very likely my first trig visit way back in the 60's. Both me and my brother have an old B/W photo with me sat on top of the pillar in what I believe would have been its original positon. My recollection of the position was approx. 5 metres South of the dry stone wall and on the crown of the Hill. (in the back ground of the photo) My logged GR is where I thought it stood. Excellent views onto Kinder and way down over Manchester. This gets a 9 because its local, its views and I sat on it as young lad.

This poor thing is toppled, a few yards south east of the hilltop, and is not on Lantern pike itself, but a summit south west. High marks for the good views.

Logging this even though I visited the toposcope on the summit and not the toppled trig. If only I had read the posts before visiting.... Passed this on a Jarrold walks book stroll from Hayfield, via Snake Path, Park Hall, the Pike and a short bit of the Sett Valley Way. Fantastic weather, lovely walk, brilliant day. After an ice cream, my brother Jon and I then did the Hayfield Treasure Trail (treasuretrails.co.uk). A really lovely day spent! Me, Jon

Jon at the Toposcope We didn't see the trig as it is toppled and having not read this first, didn't know it was still there

Glad I checked previous logs before going looking for this one as it isn't shown on my OS Explorer map and, despite its name, it isn't actually to be found on Lantern Pike (it's on the adjacent and slightly lower summit). From the layby next to Chunal Moor back along the road past The Grouse to Monks Road. Along Monks Road to the PROW onto the Open Access land. Followed this South to intersect with a farm track where I then headed West towards Matleymoor Farm and the Pennine Bridleway. Upon entering the Open Access land of Lantern Pike I headed SW straight up the hill, following the wall around to the 358m spot height and the rather folorn pillar. I was watched intently by a man in the adjacent (private) field as I photographed the trig and then returned over the wall on to Lantern Pike. As others have reported, trig is missing its spider. The FB is facing downwards - I could just squeeze my hand between the ground and the pillar but couldn't confirm earlier reports that this too is missing. Awarded 8/10 more for the views from Lantern Pike itself rather than the location of the trig pillar. Great views in every direction whilst the topograph meant I could easily identify other hills I've already visited. Cobden Edge readily visible but I couldn't make out the pillar.

Cycled up Pennine Bridleway beyond tarrred section to first gate, then walked left along well used path alongside wall. Path turns more than 90 degrees right toward monument, but the toppled pillar is in view and it wasn't to hard to pick a route across and over one intervening wall. Surely wouldn't have come here but for the pillar - an attraction of this hobby! Extensive views to the South. Lovely warm sunny day.

Be warned - this trig is protected by electric fencing around the walls to west, north and east. I know, I had to cross them all and found out the hard way! (No idea about walls to south).

Very modest hill. Actual trigpoint not the summit of the Pike [373m, observation point]; rather, the 358m spot height to the south west [on the grassy, not the heathery, part of the hill]. Pillar, complete with base, lies prone a few metres downhill. No spider, plug or FB - only surviving metalwork is 3 of the hooks. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. [Easiest access is from the byway on the west side, up the track past the disused quarry, but this is not a RoW.]

Rather a forlorn site, visible from the top of Lantern Pike and not far from The Edge (TP6378), where there is another toppled trig. if there is a path through the heather from Lantern Pike I didn't find it, but only a couple of hundred yards to skip across. The junction of walls and fence at SK 02478 88007 is a good place to cross.
