A much better outing than expected. Parked at Thornhill Lees and walked W along the Long Cut from the Calder. Picked up the dismantled railway line which made a pleasant walk, crossing the Calder and running adjacent to Dewsbury Country Park. Came off the line W of Dewsbury Moor after which the pillar played a bit of hide and seek with us. The reality is that there are many more paths than are shown on the OS map. Locating Lakeside equestrian centre was the key after which a track runs W and veers S to the trig. The location was not as expected although there are muck piles I found it a quite oasis amidst the urbanity. Pillar in good condition and can be tigged easily, FB faces the path but was overgrown with nettles. OS plug intact. Best view SSW to Thornhill Edge and E to Dewsbury. My next trig plans are on this year's backpacking adventure beginning end of June - the Howgills and the Lakes.

Conurbation View to Dewsbury
Found it! Location of pillar looking S down track near muck piles
Oasis? No need to bother the farmer

Nasty depressing place. A sea of mud, piled up farm rubbish etc. Was going to give it a zero but I'll give it 1 for the view to the East, even if it is Dewsbury.

Drove up track to gate. The trig is about 20 yards further up on RHS in field. Area around gate is a bit of a dumping ground from farm & stables.

Another easy bag, drove almost all the way to it, which was a bonus as my arthritic knees were giving me hell after having to jump down off the wall at Bramley reservoir. One of the horses in the field was using the trig as a scratching post, nice to see it still has a use of some sort anyway.

Came up from Ravensthorpe railway station, This was the first on a 22 mile 6 trig tigathon. An unassuming trig that I actually walked straight past without seeing initially. Not a lot of anything really - solely a trig tig to be honest. Of late we've had little rain and the path was very dry today - the farmer must have sold all his cow s**t since John's visit!!

Approached from the South, very wet and muddy. Quite a nice rural area surrounded by urban sprawl. I think the local farmer has cornered the market for cowmuck.
