On way back from a kids free walk in the peaks. Parked opposite entrance to cemetery and hopped the fence where the cemetery gates meet. Short steep scramble to the trig. Missus stayed in the car. Itchy.

A very "parky" day, especially on open exposed moorland. Nibbled a bit more off the PDBW and this trig was only 5 minutes off route. The only accessible way appears to be at the gate/stile adjacent the lodge, leave the PRoW and the trig is on open access land. A clear trod handrails a cemetery wall to a gate and the trig comes into view. Not visible from the path or road. The bearded vulture survived a summer on Howden/Bleaklow moors and last sighted going home via Leicestershire. Gifted to her safe journey.

(1875) My 300th extant pillar. Easy roadside parking just passed the path up to the lodge. Cars in the drive, but no-one about. Tried the intercom a few times, but no response to that. No dogs or peacocks today either. Walked up the PRoW to the gate/stile then doubled back and walked up and parallel to the private cemetery. Pillar soon reached, though it is not visible from the road below. Another one today that is missing it's centre cap, but that aside it's in good condition. Coat of white paint still fairly decent. Pillar history: Built on the 27th of September 1938, at a cost of £4 13s 8d. Last maintained by the OS in July of 1985.

My visit to this trig was about the only dry bit of the day, Storm Hanna giving it some. Went from the road via the lodge with the noisy peacocks onto the open moor then east through the gate. pleasant enough, could do with a lick of paint but otherwise in good repair.

From the S but rather than tackling the multi strand BWF I followed the track up past Crawshaw lodge and through gate then unimpeded access to hill top and trig pillar. A dull cold and grey morning. A resplendent peacock but dogs must have been off duty at Lodge.

Fairly easy to locate but access required a little climb up through gorse bramble and blueberry trying to follow old sheep track. Views were quite good and overall worth the effort. Visited during a long term Durham to Dorset walk.

Got this one on a 12 mile walk from Denis Knoll near Stanage Edge with members of East Staffordshire Ramblers. Followed the footpath accompanied by barking hound who was on the other side of the fence. We stopped and had a chat with two ladies one of whom gave us direct instructions to the pillar. Neither of the two were indignant and were quite pleasant and chatty. On asking about the cemetery, I was told that it is now deconsecrated and there are no bodies remaining. There has been a lot of vandalism and the druggies have also been using it. She told me that the cemetery was built by a member of the Bright family and there is currently an ongoing court case regarding its future. On leaving the footpath, head east across scrub , bilberry bushes and through a broken down wall to the pillar. some traces of white paint remain and the views today were excellent.

Another last minute trip. Seemed a shame to waste such a gorgeous day indoors. Anyway I hadn't read your comments below, so I parked at the end of the Crawshaw Lodge path and wondered how I was going to scale barbed wire to get onto access land. Must have looked a bit odd, especially when a BT van stops opposite and the guy starts scraping around in the grass looking for something. Decided to investigate access through the graveyard but was interogated by the woman of the house and her very loud dogs. "Can I help" meaning "what do you think you are doing". I started to say I wanted to go through the cemetery but was met by a stream of "no" syllables. She seemed very defensive of this little spot. When I got a word in edgeways and explained I wanted to get to the far side she sent me off to the moors as if it were a deportation sentence. Off I trooped, and of course once past the gate access is simple if a little heathery. Glad to hear she can be more accommodating. Those peacocks/hens looked lovely as I huried by.

The second trigpoints on a route taken from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks” Walked over from Stanage Edge and High Neb. Jumped over the fence to the east of Crawshaw then up the hill through the bracken. Watch out for the vicious snarling guard dogs at the house – good job that they are securely fenced with a stone wall and barbed wire. Returned above the wood and through the heather to avoid the dreaded beasts.

Not easily accessible but quite visible upon nearing. I was looking for a place to hop over the fence from Rod Side. Unfortunately my parking had partly blocked the entrance for the returning owner of Crawhaw Lodge so I dashed back to apologise. In the resulting conversation I explained the purpose of my visit and was immediately invited to go up through the cemetery and hop over the wall near the mausoleum. I was given the key to the cemetery [which now belongs to the house and is locked due to vandalism] and did as suggested. Once over the wall the trig point is easy to see and visit. Some lovely views across the Rivlin Valley. Pillar in good condition except that the plug is missing.

Went back again (me and Pete are writing a book, so we needed the pics). Best approach is up the drive past Crawshaw Lodge, over the gate then turn back and up behind the trees. Nice peacocks at the Lodge, and a nice cup of coffee for any trigpointers who are polite and show interest in the birds! (The good lady will lock up the four dogs before you enter the garden!)

Situated on Rod Moor about 1 km north of the A57. It isn’t directly on any footpah but there is a track that leads up to Grawshaw Farm that you can use to gain access to the moor and then work your way across to the T/P. It’s complete and in good condition. It was grey and hazy when I visited but the views were good and would be better on a clear, sunny day.
