A murky old day, from the edgelands of garage/scrap merchants via the laurel hedges and fences of the horse fraternity. An intriguing place with a hint of old colliery on the old outskirts to contrast with the land devour sheds.

Parked on Elland Close on the nearby Industrial estate , and passed "The Chuck Wagon" at the entrance to the footpath -which seems to be blocked off-walked along field edge to trig which sits just to the other side of the fence which is easily crossed by use of a small metal hurdle-The trig is in good condition with an open cap , four open sight holes and a north facing Flush Bracket -open viewpoint with the top of the Macron stadium visible to the north-Good Bacon butties available at the Chuck Wagon

HISTORY: Pillar completed 9th March 1940 costing 3.14s.7d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SD80/T65 during 1945. Levelled for height to Class 1 precision at tertiary standards in 1964. Last maintained by the OS in March 1973. SITE VISIT: Approached from east. Parked beside field gateway, west side of side road into industrial estate at SD645074. Followed mapped RoW along fenceline all the way. Pillar located in edge of grazing field to north, other side of boundary fence from RoW. Farmer was in sight and came over to see me, he's had problems with irresponsible dog owners but was friendly and was happy for my activites. Column in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces north across field, compass measurement 357. All sight holes open, innards partially blocked with debris. Full 360 open outlook. Part of a 24 trig stint around the northern outskirts of Manchester.

Uninspiring trig, but in good nick apart from missing plug, and easy to find -although it can't be seen from the lane. Go down the lane alongside the field with crop in until you come to a fence and then follow the fence to the trig. The trig is in the field with the crop but as others have said, it's better to approach through the other field alongside the fence, then just jump over when you get to the trig.

Easy access on public footpath. Trig is over fence. No need to go over other side of fence before you get to trig (as we did!) as field is overgrown and the fence can easily be got over at the side of the trig

No plug. Private. Reeve's House Farm. RoW south side of fence line [pasture]. Trig north side [arable]. Can be touched across fence but to read FB need to get over [easy enough]. Short walk from Westhoughton station along local footpaths.

Parked by the tyre/exhaust garage and then had to negotiate a frozen lane before setting off across the paddy field to the pillar. Conditions couldn't have been much worse. However, the pillar's in good shape apart from a missing plug. West sighthole open, others closed. Traces of paint. Again, there are possible some reasonable views from here but today it was snowing and foggy and I couldn't see anything.
