Parked at the nearby Morrisons on a slushy morning in South Yorkshire. Followed the estate and took Abbey Brook close in order to find the ginnel. The ginnel leads onto a playing field which I walked around, but I kept thinking of Roger Templeman's photo so I went back to the ginnel and had a look around the trees nearby, of course to no avail. Views on the walk back towards the snowy peak district must get to those Ox Stones soon......

Drove to the top of the estate and walked down the ginal. There was some concrete just as you walked out from the houses.

walked through the woods to start with and got to within 30 metres on the GPS, drove round to the new estate and found spot where trigpoint used to stand on a playing field next to new housing estate, local walking his dog told me the trigpoint was still there after the housing was built, he thinks it was there till the mid 1980's.

a lot of effort for no reward.

No sign of it. Garden rubbish dumped in wood so difficult to search for possible remains. Trig was S2296, destroyed Nov 1986 according to OS via Trigonomy.

Worked for the company that owned the site for some years. This disappeared when the quarry face was stabalised for new development.
