Gill drove practically all the way to this one, having previous run to it. That didn't make me feel bad about bagging it at all via this method now did it!

Day out walking W of Carsington, dropping in on villages and this trig, which just off the S edge of the White Peak map. Quite easy to find, on track S of Kniveton with good views E of Carsington Water round to the S, the sunny cold clear day helping enjoy the vistas.

Lovely views, easy access from the nearby track. Fences/gates gone, with wide open access. Views including towards Carsington. Saw Ratcliffe power station in the far distance. Nice pub in Kniveton.

Pillar in good condition, complete with all metalwork. Like several other pillars in this area, concrete has a pink hue. Close to rocky outcrop; good views, especially to S and E. Walked in along green lane from S - not recommended, as very muddy (badly churned up by 4x4s, by the look of it).

This pillar is easy to find; it is just off a track that carries a footpath. The best views south over the Trent Valley are availbale from near the pillar, not from it.
