Walked over from Abney Moor via Abney Clough on a route from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. Access over the wall to the south was difficult would be better from the path to the east. A great trigpoint with fantastic views up to Ladybower and down to Chatsworth. A great days walking – started with mist and drizzle but as forecast cleared to blue skies with the odd shower and rainbow.

Passed nearby whilst out walking with my walking group, The Irregulars, LDWA. So this was an opportunity to visit that was just too good to miss particularly as I was able to bag the nearby cache. Simple walk across the moor from the footpath. Pillar is highly visible and therefore easily accessible. Pillar in good condition with plastic plug. On what was a beutiful day the views were marvellous.

I stayed the previous night at Bretton Youth Hostel. It was very sad to hear that it is turning into a pure rent a hostel soon so individual visitors will not be able to stay there any more. I had an excellent meal at the Barrel Inn. The sun was shining so all in all I was in fine spirits as I hopped or should I say fell over the wall and bagged this trig and hill, one of the newly classified HuMPs. My spirits fell however when I realised I had lost my GPS. Found it a while later at the geocache site in the copse near the track junction to the west.

came on the track from the west- met a group of four chelsea tractors coming the other way, the excitement they must feel chugging along a dirt track would have me fainting, i mean, my girlfriend lives on a local unadopted road, and it's just soooooo aMAZing driving down through the puddles wow!!!! i too could spend all day driving in a belligerent convoy around all the green lanes i know, oh, except i don't know any tossers to do it with.

The man repairing the dry stone wall didn't seem bothered when I asked if it was OK to climb over. A good view from here. GR to 10m only.

Magnificent pillar - it could just have rolled off the production line! Brilliant white and only the plastic plug replacement tells you it's been around a bit. N sighthole open, the others closed. Set on a knoll adjacent to a trackway but a stile is close so access is easy. Magnificent views in all directions. Only the b*****y mobile phone mast ruins it. Great spot!

Walked to the trig point after doing geocache GC4891. Could have done with that stile being on the west side of the trig!

Missed the stile that the other loggers used so didn't get to the trig. The wall had barbed wire across the top. Annoying as it was so close to the road!

This one is easy to get at, being situated along side a track. The centre plug is missing and the hole blocked with a plastic plug which is why I've recorded it as 'slightly damaged'. On a clear day, the views would be grand but when I visited it was grey, overcast and hazy.

Pillar has been painted white in the past. Loads of rabbits here. Great views over to the back of Bradwell Edge. Counted at least 10 paragliders, several handgliders as well as gliders in the air today.

Just off Sir William Hill Road, there's a stile to get over the wall and a path back to the trig point pillar.

Casual visitors are deterred by the barbed wire fence.. Certainly stops idiots climbing it. Went in over the stile and continued on through Bretton Clough
