What a fantastic hill this is. 30 mins up from the CP in Wildboarclough, fantastic views in all directions and very few people about. Well named the Little Matterhorn of Cheshire. Just over the border (formed by the R.Dane) from N.Staffs but just a continuation of the Moorlands. Great view to Roaches End, Ramshaw Rocks, then Morridge and the Mermaid Inn. South to Cannock Chase, The Wrekin, Longmynd, Breidden Hills and just visible The Berwyns. SW and W to N. Wales coast and part of Clwydian Hills, Mow Cop, The Cloud, Cheshire Plain, Jodrell Bank and finally Manchester. Views north and NE are curtailed by Flash and surrounding moorlands but the Leek to Buxton road could be made out. A super day out before the drought ends.

Steep climb up here after a long walk from Macclesfield station! Plenty of geocaches to find on the way, however! The pillar stands on a flat platform of stone slabs. Plastic plug replacement. Two sight holes open, two closed. Traces of white paint. Really nice spot with great views all round.

Glorious hill, not been for ages as a deservedly popular spot but have it briefly to ourselves today. Shropshire and many of the Welsh mountains on show beyond the edges of Cheshire and Staffs.

The hill approached from Macc Forest - Nice Nosh you will be missed!

A lovely walk with our Cheshire bestie. Parked on the Wildboarclough road and walked up the paved path and down the other (very steep....I took a tumble!) side towards Shutlingsloe Farm. Absolutely loved the views from the top - had been wanting to go up there for years but never had the opportunity. Nice decorative feature on the trig :)

Parked in one of the dedicated parking bays at Macclesfield forest then simply followed the signposts. It's a good walk, fairly easy going with just a few large stone steps to negotiate. It was slightly hazy but the views were still splendid.

Parked in UU. Macc forest car park at SJ977714 and picked up the footpath South across the top of the forestry block, some spectacular view points looking down into the valley - worth getting the camera out. continued on the PROW SE to reach the stone stairway, long legs required for the first few steps !! visibility not great on the day but warm and sun breaking the clouds on occasions - been on the top a number of times but not officially logged FB/GR previously. Headed off East down into Wildboarclough aiming for Shining Tor TP via Three Shires Heads. Good spot for lunch.

Straightforward walk up from the car park in Wildboarclough, spoilt only by the non-stop rainy conditions which made the ground underfoot squelchy all the way, and reduced the views from the summit somewhat. Enjoyable walk nevertheless; would definitely be fun on a warm, sunny day (I imagine the views must be extensive and beautiful when it's totally clear). Trig in pretty good condition all-round.

Birthday treat for TSB. Walked up from the Clough House car park along a footpath which was unreasonably grassy for this time of year and for such a popular trek. Have I been transported to Switzerland? A fine Sunday afternoon stroll, but I do need to work on some circular routes again. Up and down is not on you know. Excellent views from the top, especially on this sunny day. Home via The Hanging Gate. Great beers and a Swedish ex au pair as Landlady.

Thirty minutes up from the carpark at Clough House – great views and plenty of folks about today. Continued on to Tegg’s Nose following the route in “Peak District Trigpointing Walks” great views from here too but unfortunately no trigpoint. Much more climbing than I expected – a lot of effort for one trigpoint – but a good days walking.

Plastic plug. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. Superb hill with a striking profile, rising sharply from the surrounding countryside. From Langley village, take Clarke Lane, then walk through Macclesfield Forest [waymarked] to reach open country. Final ascent steep, but mercifully short.

I used the car park at the road junction directly north of the trigpoint. From there, I took the permissive bridleway which branches on to a permissive footpath directly to the top of Buxtors Hill and from there, a splendid walk along the ridge top to Shutlingsloe. The final steep climb had me panting a bit by the time I reached the summit. The pillar, once painted white, was in good condition apart from the missing centre plug. A plastic bung was it’s replacement. The views were awesome; you could see for miles in all directions. Pity it was hazy in the distance. On a clear, bright winter’s day they would be truly excellent. There is a stainless steel, topographic, memorial attached to a rock nearby stating “In memory of Arthur Smith a doughty fighter for footpaths and access to mountains. Erected by the Peak and Northern Footpaths Society and the Ramblers Assocn.” The pillar also has a plaque screwed to it commemorating 20 years of Remembrance Sunday visits by “Holdens Hoofers”

A stiff climb up to this trig on a hill that looks like a hill should (or at least how we drew them as kids). Done on a linear walk from Buxton to Macclesfield via Cat & Fiddle. Excellant all round views.

We took the shorter but incredibly steep path up from Shutlingsloe Farm but it was worth every hard step. The views from the top are fantastic in all directions. It's in good condition and painted a rather grubby white. There's a plaque to Holdens Hoofers and a view finder just to the side of it. Plug replaced with plastic insert.
