A little overgrown, but straightforward to find. There is a nice stone cut bench mark on the end of Duxon Hill Cottages (shown on the OS plan).

After two attempts its third time lucky. I walked right past it but my wife Isabel spotted the stone so that was her good deed for the day! A beautiful sunny afternoon in my local countryside, will visit again soon.

Whilst looking for Duxon Hill (one of my first trigs) I stumbled accross this, but said to my better half that this cannot be it - it is in the wrong location. Now I know. Visited it on Boxing Day 2005, and still in good condition. (logged as 473ft)

Beneath fence at side of lane. GPS plaque, no height tag. Good views towards Winter Hill but nearby Duxon Hill is a better vantage point.
