Up from Middlesmoor. Subzero and snow on the ground so a bit treacherous on icy parts of track, but good view of upper Nidderdale.

From Woodale Moss (459m) SE076761 there are 2 posts to the south east and then in the corner of the field there is a new style over the wall. Saves jumping over fences etc. Trig appears to have been hacked on top by farm machinery. Great views. Good walk from either Middlesmoor or the Scar House Reservoir where there is lots of parking.The reservoir has some of the best industrial archeology in the country and is impressive engineering.

The Triangulation Pillar Walked 1 mile from where i left the bike to get to the pillar.

A half-hour walk up the public track from Middlesmoor and from there just a ten minute walk up the wall back on to the moor top and the Trig. Use the gate well before you get to the wall rather than trying to get over high unstable walls. Top of trig is crumbling away but retains original plug. Good views of upper Nidderdale.

Visible and accessible. I came up In Moor Lane from Scar House Reservoir and then hopped over the wall [wire topped] and followed the wall up to the trig which had been visible from the lane. Returned by crossing fence near pillar and dropped down to gateway with broken gate - this would have been an easier access point if coming up from Middlesmoor. Good views of the surrounding areas. Some slight damage to the top corners. Still has original plug with indented lettering.

Pillar on N side of fence/broken wall. Plug intact but top damaged with end of spider exposed. Sighting-hole on W side open, rest closed. Good views across to Great/Little Whernside, Meugher and down Nidderdale. The OS 1:25000 (Explorer 26) map shows two locations on the moor to the SW of How Stean Gorge labelled 'pillar' - I assumed these are waterworks-related and didn't investigate.

I am surprised no-one has visited here before; it is quite east to get to, being near a bridleway from which it is mostly hidden. Nice views over towards Great Whernside and down the Nidd Valley. Ended up camping a short distance from the pillar for the night. There is some slight damage to the top of the pillar.
