Easy walk from Margery, trig standing proud on its concrete base a couple of feet above the peat: has the peat shrunk? Views limited but walk 100m NW to some rocks and they get better, so I sat and had a drink and a sarney and soaked it all in. Turned S and walked the edges back to the Ashopton Viaduct, a long day walking but great.

Access from parking at the Kings tree , Heading out to the trig from the Cut gate path along the NT boundary, the going under foot was pretty dismal, I think the Water shed was close to maximum saturation, the peat was just ready to swallow you up - Continued out to Howden Edge eventually bailing out at Swains Head and returning South following the River Derwent. Must of added 2k to the walk picking a route across the moor !!

Returned from Margery Hill to Cut Gate and headed on here. A somewhat zig-zag route to pick driest line. While a warm sunny day, the distant views were a indistinct grey. Returned to Cut Gate and down to packhorse bridge to collect bike after about a two hour walk. Returned home via Hathersage, Bakewell and the A6 with a stop in the fleshpots of Matlock Bath for further calories! It made a round cycle of 122 miles.

Having previously spotted this one from Margery Hill I thought this would be a relatively easy bag. However, with 74 trigs already under my belt I really should have known better than that !! From Langsett car park I took the obvious path down to the reservoir and crossed the dam wall. Shortly after this I followed the bridleway and permissive footpath through a conifer plantation on the southern bank of Langsett Reservoir. After crossing Thickwoods Brook the bridleway climbs to North America where the scenery becomes increasly isolated. From here I continued NW towards Hingliff Hill before turning SW at another junction of paths to head along Mickleden Edge and Cut Gate. This was a stunning part of the walk as Mickleden Beck slowly rises to meet the path so that you are splashing along the rocky bed of the nascent beck. Eventually the rocks give way to a peat grough. Upon reaching a cairn (just as the path begins its descent towards the River Derwent) I foolishly struck out across the heather of Featherbed Moss towards Crow Stones in what I believed to be the correct general direction. Still, this did at least flush out my first ever mountain hare !! However, I soon became confused by my inability to spot the trig and so, using Margery Hill as a marker, I consulted my map before continuing on a bearing of 326. Maintaining a bearing wasn't as straightforward as it sounds owing to the presence of two or three deep groughs and the need to circumnavigate pools of standing water. Finally the pillar appeared no more than 200m infront of me as I broached the shallow summit. Pillar is in surprisingly good condition given its exposed location. All four sight holes open but original metal cap has been replaced with a plastic insert. Peat badly eroded such that the base is some 2 foot above the ground. Good 360 views with Emley Moor transmitter clearly visible.

Oh my. A slog over from Marjery just got worse and worse. Occasional glimpses of a path but more often than not a wide wide bog which at one point swallowed her up to her waist. It looked worse, and I thought I would lose a Walsh rescuing her.) Absolutely no point returning to the Cut Gate saddle, (apt - lots of bikes), so we headed east and easily found the path keeping a lot dryer.

Boggy walk across from Margery, despite the recent dry weather, although the path is easy to follow thanks to the wooden stakes. Trig stands proud from the surrounding peat thanks to substantial erosion. Also has a recent coat of white paint thanks to some kind beneficiary. Dropped down westward through the heather to Broadhead Clough, then back to Fairholmes.

I re-visited this pillar on 01 August 2006 after many previous visits, the most recent being in 2001. The first thing I noticed was that the memorial plaque for the dog "Penny" has gone - presumably stolen by some mindless vandal. The plastic top cap that I fitted in 2001 is still in situ and has now been painted white. The pillar is in good condition although its base stands about a foot above the surrounding peat due to erosion.
