Through the scorched edges of the Medlock, past the little millennium stone that has been put up. Beautiful spot, very sad to see Winter Hill piled with smoke from some arses arson as well as from Saddleworth.

a quick amble around the cricket ground passing in front of the pavilion and then climbed the banking to the trig which sits in a hedge by a fence -the trig is in good condition and will give an excellent view of the cricket

No 3/5 Parked at the Cricket Pavilion, some guys doing refurbishment work and were fine with me leaving the car for the short stroll across the pitch boundary to the TP. I imagine its been a useful seat for many a cricket match in the past, unfortunately that's about all I could see from my visit minus the players. logging the FB is a little awkward unless you do a little fence hopping.

Asphalt plug. Private. Owner uncertain, as wedged in 'no man's land' between fences separating Austerlands cricket ground from farmland beyond. Easily accessed from public footpath round edge of disused quarry. FB faces field, which is easy enough to get into.

So nearly a wonderful spot. The pitch at Aus Cricket Club is one of those, like Broadbottom, where you feel a good strike would clear three counties. It has us beat though by having a pillar look down on it. But the downside is that there is a lot of intrusion here which detracts from the 240 degree views. I may be doing this area an injustice. I was thinking of a circular walk, but in the end it was a park-and-bag.
