I couldn't determine what the top cap is, such are the layers of paint. All sight holes open. Extensive views S, W & N; E obscured by rising ground.

Looked to have been recently repainted white. I've always known this as White Hill, as shown on OS and Pennine Way maps., so seems appropriate. Nice walk on reasonable Pennine Way section from Windy Hill transmitter car park near Junction 22 on M62.

Trig approach on Pennine Way from W/NW Trig approach on Pennine Way from W/NW (heading South on Pennine Way). White trig difficult to spot against cloud on horizon.

Someone has taken lot of trouble to repair and paint this Trig. I think it's status can be raised from Damaged to Slightly damaged. one large area of Render missing but it's been stabilised and looked hood in the early Autumn sunshine.

Third visit on circular walk from Marsden via Cupwith Hill and Dog Hill. Second visit was on a cold, crisp day in March, 2010 while researching source of River Tame for my book "Headwaters : Walking to British River Sources". First was 29.7.75 during PW walk. It's a lot easier now on a paved path and there's a lot less visible peat!!

A great but very tiring trek from Marsden, went onto bag Blackstone Edge, and Dog Hill Trigs, you can follow the mywrite up of this walk by tapping Fell Finder into Google, cheers.

Visited whilst finding a couple of geocaches before this afternoons extreme tea party over at Blackstone Edge. Trig has a pretty big chunk missing from the side of it, but seemed to be in reaonable condition other than that.

After bagging 3 nearby geocaches, stumbled upon this trig - bonus. Brilliant views, although dark skies threatened rain. Still the odd patch of snow in some nearby gullies. Trig painted white.

The creepy Saddleworth Moor! We went to this trig in the bad winter of December 2009 in the middle of a blizzard! Short walk up from the car park to the NW of this trig (near the mast). From memory (it was a few years ago now!) I think it took us 45 minutes to walk there and back to the car, but the blizzard was so bad that we thought we were going to die! This log was written on 4 July 2014.

16 mile linear walk from Windy Hill to Crowden, bagged White Hill (Moss Moor) and Standedge trigs, the rain went mental between the two trigs but cleared up in the end, made it hard to ford the stream later on though.

Tigged on a Windy Hill-Rishworth-Marsden-Windy Hill walk. Moss Moor had just had a brief snowstorm. Badly erroded, plug missing and paedophile graffiti too offensive to photograph on NE side. Altogether a sorry state of affairs for a waypoint on the Pennine Way.

This is White Hill, a fair way from Moss Moor and sat right on the Pennine Way. It's a bit bleak and the trigs suffering (but still surviving) but a good walk from Marsden to Toddy (Todmorden) or Hebden Bridge passes this trig just before reaching the M62. Visited again 3rd July 2005 and on this clear day the views were pretty good. And again 07/04/2007. And again 05/08/2007 No cars, on foot.

A White Hill to follow the Black Hill on this day on the Pennine Way. Foul day and deep bogs. This was the era of the popularity of the route and before path improvements. Black Porridge! The white of course probably refers to bog cotton.
