Last TP of a 3 trig day (Pendle Hill & Stang Top inc on the circular route). From Pendle Hill across Ogden Res's, used PROW heading SE to Sabden. Took a footpath heading SW towards Lower lane fm at Sabden Hall to avoid using road - mistake, footpaths seemed quite undefined and lack of markings. Eventually picked up PROW at the bottom of the ridge and headed East for the 5 bar metal gate at the top of the hill - TP just beyond the gate. Good view back across at Pendle Hill - took the ridge walk heading back to Ridgealing Res. We bumped into a very interesting chap who was paying an extraordinary amount of attention to the local road signs, he turned out to be the designer and pattern maker of the local Green parish signs in the area. Three TP circular approx. 20km

I was leading a walk for the Irregulars, LDWA and we just happened to be passing along the footpath near this pillar. So it had to be visited for five of us to log our visit - the other 17 just shrugged their shoulders and had their picture taken. Pillar in good condition apart from the replacement plastic plug. Nice area with good views particularly those towards Pendle Hill. Lovely autumnal day vor a visit too.
