From Ainley Top / Fixby Ridge down to Kirklees Way via Bryan Ln (track) then through Birchencliffe to this one. Adjacent derelict farm buildings are no more and extensive house building taking place nearby. The cross has hoarding surrounding it so I guess it is safe from the developers but not so the trig pillar. Tried to find someone to ask about extent of the development but nobody about in the site office / mess. Cap is missing from this one but otherwise good condition. Returned to start via the PROW that now leads down to new housing estate on Weatherhill Rd then along West St and Birchencliffe Hill Rd, across Halfiax Rd to eventually rejoin the Kirklees Way. Followed Kirklees Way up to Top of Cowcliffe where there were good views across Huddersfield to Emley Moor transmitter (top amongst the cloud) and Victoria Tower. Finally across Huddersfield Golf Club and out via the drive (ignoring keep to PROW / no ROW along drive signs).

Log #91. 265m. Short detour from walking section 3 of Kirklees Way LDP. Very hot day. Temp 31, sunny, visibility excellent. Good 180 degree views. Interesting area, with evidence of several archaeological digs having taken place all round. (Roman coins have been found). This trig is only a hop away from Lindley Moor Road which follows the course of the old Roman road from York to Manchester. (The Roman surface is only 15 inches below the tarmac). There may have been a hill fort near the trig. Also a few meters away is the 14th century Haigh Cross (a medieval prayer cross). As the inscription reads - Re-erected in 1808 following the willful destruction of the former cross. The Trig is in excellent shape with original metal plug, but unfortunately it may end up as another lost trig soon, for as noted by Slateloose the area is up for development, although according to the planning notices all around, it is for a huge Data Processing Campus as well as homes.

adjacent farmhouse is currently unoccupied so access not a problem. Good view to the east. Most interesting thing is the monument nearby, Haigh Cross, showing Quarmby de Quarmby's crest 1304 on one side & other side saying Re-erected by T.T. 1808 After being willfully pulled down. Can't find any information about it.

Close to house on West side of Crosland Road, in paddock surrounded by single wire fence. Called at house to ask permission to go onto their property but no-one was in. Went on property anyway with great care. There is an interesting stone pillar (Haigh Cross) even closer to the house so I suspect they are used to historians also going on their land.
