Logged this trig as part of a 3 trig walk. Starting at Hapton inn up to hameldon common, onto great hameldon and down to peel park. Slight damage to top of the pillar. Not much of a view at the trig because of woodland but view points further along the path of Burnley, Accrington and Pendle.

Arrived at Mankinholes YHA (Todmorden) last night for two night stay without a plan for today. Much perusing of the maps sorted a challenging day out. Walked up ROWs from pub on main road, but could have cycled further to car park if I'd known of it. Clear paths to summit.

Parked on Pinewood Drive. I walked up The Coppice Steps, then up a steep forest path up to the monument. From there it was a flat walk to the trig. Views slightly spoilt by trees. The best view of Accrington is from the monument. Nice sunny end to the day in a nice park.

Easily accessible and highly visble. On walked path. I parked in the car park by the allotments to the west and just followed the paths upward on to the ridge. Some slight damage to the pillar but in reasonable condition particularly as it is so close to urban civilisation. I presume it is a good viewing point up here but somewhat misty today. Unable to take a picture as I had left the camera in the car.

Last of the day before a pint and a bite to eat and then off to the game! This one has a plastic plug replacement - I haven't found a genuine plug all day! - and is very white. On the edge of conifer trees in tussock grassland. Quite good condition considering the number of people who must come up here, especially in summer.
