Beautiful trig with a fine square support base and b&w footplate. Glorious frosty blue and sun glowed afternoon. Grey rolling to the east over the higher Pennine and on to the distant flanks of Pen y Ghent. Ingleborough and further north in the sunshine. Pink yellow gold sun set over Darwen Tower and Winter Hill. Fantastic spot overlooking the Irwell divide.

Parking at the Pub then along a difficult to follow footpath along the road, then off ROW to summit, pillar is located in a fenced off section of the hill top, I hoped over the fence, as I did not see the gap mentioned in other logs. Pillar good condition, large plinth, lots of wind generators. great views.

Stands on a very sturdy plinth - a bit over the top as the ground seems firm! However, the rot has really set in around the spider leaving it completely exposed.

Cracks in the concrete have let water in and as a result calcium salts have been leached out of the concrete, redeposited giving the pillar a tufa shell. As well as this someone has had a good go at trying to remove the spider. Easy walk over the moors from the one parking place I could find.
