K Swerved off footpath to bag trig near field wall. Clearly this corner can get boggy from the tractor treads in the turf, which the recent sunny weather has dried out making the ground ankle turning. Good view over Burnley and Pendle Hill prominent.

Has the OS placed the trig symbol in the wrong position on the map? It's much closer to the wall than the position it's shown at on the current South Pennines Explorer map. Perhaps the error occurred when they reinstated the trig symbol after omitting it from some editions?

Trig is in excellent condition especially considering it's close proximity to the road. Views across Lancashire to Pendle Hill. The trig is not shown on my 1996 O.S. South Pennines map but is on the earlier 1984 and 1978 versions (the removal of the blue triangle makes it look like the wall is missing to the South of the trig).
