Parked just outside 22 Kestrel Close. Lady was putting bin out so I asked, she said its best to go through the field rather than over the wall. As I could tig it from in the garden I was happy to tig it and leave.

On way to Manchester to see my brother, did a short detour for this trig and surprised to see the views over the Cheshire plain and more. Mind you, the weather was superb, I wished I was out walking. Went to 22 Kestrel to see the trig in the field right next to their garden wall but no-one was in. In the end walked along the footpath on the other side and nipped over the gate in to the field; I suggest park near the church on Ridge Road and nip in to the field from there-there is room to pull in. Tried to imagine the views N now obscured by the houses.

No need to trouble the adjacent resident as this one is easily accessed via gate into field from Ridge Road. Very friendly owner came out whilst I was visiting and said they have been there 25 years and are used to people coming to see the pillar. Even said someone has visited on Xmas day and brought along a 4 pack of beer with them !!

Accessed the trig from the field side via the gate near to the public footpath. Nobody appeared to be at home in number 22. Pillar still appears to be in good condition. Some absolutely stunning weather and visibility conditions today. Western hills of the National Park looked good enough to eat and from the viewing point further along the road I was also able to pick out the tops of the Clwydian Range far, far beyond the Cheshire Plain.

Walked out here from Disley on a muggy afternoon. Did full loop of the field to find a good access point, best access and view from Kestral Close. Chose not to jump the wall, but took some pics from the drive. May revisit one night to have my customary picnic by the trig.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Private [owner unknown]. Approached across a field of long grass, above which the pillar just raises its head. Easy enough to access. The houses come right up to it on the other side, so it's perhaps lucky to survive.

Easy find, although like others were a little unsure as how to approach it. In the end we went accross the field and stepped over barbed wire fence. Only when we returned through gate did we see the footpath was before and not through the field! oops!

It may be builderised, newish bungalow here, but I suspect its hidden in a garden. The 1:25k shows a plot which is now occupied by a bungalow. If surviving, its behind the house. The field I thought it was in is no longer used, and I suspect will soon be hosting some expensive housing. Lovely views from here over the canal towards Kinder.

Marple Ridge The bungalow is not on the map.. I think the site is either under it or behind it
