Dog Hill on Rishworth Moor. Splendidly isolated, no RoW paths to the trig but tracks are there from most directions although they might be a little moist. Loses a point because of the noise from the M62. Done on a nice lengthy hike from Walsden to Mythholmroyd. Update from 30/07/2006, it's now on access land - todays route was Marsden to Toddy, similar to ted I was intrigued by the numerous psuedo trigs (see teds photo) here to the SE around Booth Wood Reservoir but - all in close proximity - I'm guessing they're something to do with the Water Board - there's obviously some form of tool/instrument that will sit in the top. No cars, on foot.
