Walked in from the E, along Dukes Road, picking up Howden Edge and Upper Hey hills en-route. Fresh coat of white paint; centre tube plug has been breached; RHS sight hole open.

Visited after dark. It had been unseasonably warm February day and it was still very pleasant. I'm sure the daytime views are very nice, points of interest at night are lights on Holme Moss and Emley Moor masts, orange glows of distant cities, a couple of aeroplanes over Manchester and the lights of mountain biker ascending Cut Gate.

Solo walk, been to this trig several times but forgot to log it. Years ago while practicing compass work it was no problem traipsing the moors; in recent times it's a case of wandering off bearing...but got there in the end. Thankfully the peat is quite dry and the trig is now bright white (thanks to the painter) so is easily spotted. The views were great all round. On to Outer Edge trig.

Parking by the reservoir ( you can park a few hundred meters along the road and save the 4.70) along the Western side of the reservoirs then up to Howden Moor, over Nether Hey, Row Top, High Stones, Wilfrey Edge, Margery Hill, Howden Edge, Broadhead Clough Head, Outer Edge, then back via Cut Gate End, to the northern edge of Howden reservoir, 22km and 1050m of of accents. Great walk. Both pillars in good condition, Outer Edge looking very exposed at the base. Amazing views in all directions. Boggy old walk over to Outer Edge even in the summer.

A crazy idea for a day out! I'd previously dismissed visiting this and Outer Edge as too much cycling and walking for one day from home, but decided to attempt it. A good tail wind blew me through the lanes to Ashbourne, then the Tissington Trail to Parsley Hay, Monyash, Taddington, Tideswell, Bradwell, Bamford and up the lane alongside the Derwent Dams. Arrived at the pack horse bridge with 60 miles done and had lunch. A lovely sunny day and lots of folk out and about. Left the bike and walked up Cut Gate standing aside for several descending mountain bikers. Turned right and across moor to Margery Hill. Dry enough, with care, to keep feet dry in cycling shoes.

Walked up from Fairholmes using cycle/walking track on the East bank of Derwent Reservoir, took the path to Nether Hey and then out onto Howden Edge. Good path heading North to Margery Hill TP. Brilliant days walking made the more interesting for observing a number of different military aircraft flying down the valley, eagerly awaiting the Lancaster, unfortunately not on this occasion. Excellent day for visibility and this has to rate high on my Trig Pillars for views.

Pathfinder Guides - Peak District Walks (2009): Margery Hill. Uneventful stroll from Fairholmes alongside Derwent and Howden Reservoirs to Slippery Stones. Howden Reservoir was in overflow but views were restricted due to trees. There followed a more scenic climb across the spur separating Cranberry and Bull Cloughs to reach Howden Edge. Ground nowhere near as wet as I'd anticipated given the amount of rain we have had this summer. Bleak but far-reaching views from the trig. Looks like top layer of concrete (or possibly many layers of white paint) has eroded from one top corner hence recorded as slightly damaged (see photo). Nearby Margery stones add interest. Continued South along the edge to High Stones from where the pillars at Outer Edge, Margery Hill and Back Tor were all visible. Eventually descended to Cogman Clough then headed SW across Nether Hey before finally picking up the main reservoir service track back to Fairholmes.

I've been dreading this trip. Well, this and Outer Edge, qv. Long and uneventful walk up from the Flouch car park and Cut Gate but then as we leave the bikers behind, the path disappears into bog. Pillar too far from the edge for really great views, but the prehistoric mound may become interesting. On to Outer Edge. It gets worse!

Very warm today and hardly any wind either. Luckily continuing dry weather make for easy walking - I'm not sure how much fun it would be on the peat if it was very wet. Ascended from Fairholmes via east side of reservoirs and Howden Clough before climbing direct to the end of Howden Edge to conquer South Yorkshire's summit and then heading North to the trig point. Returned to Kings Tree via Cut Gate & Slippery Stones(watch out for descending mountain bikers) to pick up the useful bus ride back to Fairholmes.

I re-visited this pillar on 01 Aug 2006 after several earlier visits, the most recent being in Feb 2001. I found it much as I remember it, in good condition with very little erosion around because it stands on a small outcrop of rock. One new thing is a fenced-off area about 200 yards to the West of the pillar with a notice erected by the National Trust saying that the enclosed area has been identified as a Bronze Age burial mound and requesting walkers to keep out of the fenced area.

This is painted white and set in a ring of peat. At the time of our visit, it was incredibly misty, so although I'm sure the views are superb, we couldn't see a damn thing. Had to use the compass to find it, and to get back to the path. Plug replaced with plastic insert.

Done whilst county top bagging is at the top of Sheffield & South Yorkshire - bad westher combined with almost coming down off the wrong side of the moor made for a very wet day - for the full story please visit - http://www.wheresthepath.com/county_tops/ct_sheffield&south_yorks.htm

Getting a bit tired by this point, so stopped here for some lunch. Quite blowy and none too warm, but the rain held off nicely. After having some food, had much more energy, so decided to go on and bag the final trig in my planned route.

There are some superb views from this trig point, which is on the gritstone edge to the northeast of Derwent Reservoit. Well worht a visit, and easy to include some other spectacular trig pillars in at the same time. This is the highest point in South Yorkshire.
