Aw! Rather sad and moss covered pillar a short scramble up off a dog poo strewn path. Leaning a little, precariously close to the edge.

A fine urban/country threshold of a trig, the turbined hills glow in the snow and sun, city near surrounded but Heaton Park cool but sunny. Near the Manchester UA top which is the temple less than 30 mins away.

Damp, motorway noise but also a lapwing and oystercatcher flyby

Detour to revisit. Lean is probably no worse than when previously seen, almost 10 years ago. Plug missing. Pillar blending in with the surrounding vegetation.

Good condition pillar, if a bit moss-covered and dinged on the edges. Metal loops are gone as is the cap with no plug present. FB faces W-ish with E/S-ish sightholes open only. Pillar is leaning 8 degrees off true but seems stable enough. Accessed from road to the north along the bridleway which was litter-, and barkers egg-, free....No real views except to the east to the motorway...

Accessed from Heaton Park, but you have to get through the wall much further east then go along the path westwards. Just up on the bank in the trees. Views not great as motorway close by.

Arrived just at school day finish and the road is thronged, but no one on the track to the pillar. Easily spotted and reached up bank from rideable track. Reservoir is the termination of the aqueduct from the Lake District. Much info carved on roadside commerative stones.

A simple trip from Heywood Road. The pillar itself looks very lonely and neglected but accessible from the path. Now If I were a Maths teacher at that school .... Fear not. The fence disappears just below the pillar.

Easy access from a path between the high school and the res, trig well visible up a bank left after the school fence, you don't go into any grounds so no worries. Views possible towards Blackstone Edge, Oldham and that transmitter on the motorway summit. Big windfarm visible N spoiling moor. Plug gone, and all the hooks broken, but still standing folks.

Parking at the end of the track, follow the track down past the school and then continue to the end of a wire fence. The trig is just up the little steep hill to the left. It looks like it is trying to slip down that hill. Not particularly inspiring, although there is a limited view in one direction.
