No.4/4. Second attempt on this one - when last trigging in the area whilst looking for a parking spot on the lane heading towards Aldwark noted the farmer spraying the fields so kept driving. Easy parking on the verge on the small lane to the South of the trig. Metal gate to climb over and up a couple of fields - easy trig for the last one of the day. Plug filled, views back towards Blackstones low Trig - just visible through the binoculars protruding above the stone wall.

Day's walking with my mate, Tracker Dog, hoping to bag three but the pleasure of dawdling and getting sidetracked meant it was this one only. Parked in Aldwarke village, walked down lanes towards trig and nipped into field where trig was, not easily seen until quite near as it's near to a wall. Good views.

From Blackstones Low down to B5056 and round to Longcliffe. Left at crossroads then along lanes until roughly level with trig. Didn't hop over the gate as this would have been visible to a farmer working in fields below. Instead used bushes as cover and hopped over wall. Then it was a case of heading up the hill, over a couple of walls and under electric fences until I eventually found the trig against a wall towards the top of the hill. Pillar is in good condition except for metal cap having been replaced with bitumen. Didn't hang around as I was concerned about being spotted trespassing. Crich Monument and trig above Harborough Rocks were clearly visible but views spoilt by large quarry. Had intended to return to Longcliffe via PROW at SK227564 but it was so overgrown as to be impassable.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked on the road to the south-east and went through a convenient gateway and straight up the hill to the pillar. In good condition but at some time in the past has had the original plug replaced by a composite one. Commanding views from this location. What a difference a day makes. Yesterday pjr was wallowing mud today it was all frozen and the only danger was a sprained ankle.

Second pillar starting walk in Wirksworth,pillar sits in muddy hollow against wall,good views with snow line in distance.Off to Ible to try to pick a route to get a bus on A6.I would advise anyone taking F paths through this location to wear wellies as it one of the muddiest places in the Peak District.Today was no exception and again regreted taking this route.

I parked near to the gate on the lane to the SE. This is the nearest approach but involved a difficult climb over a wired stone wall. Good views on a sunny day. Asphalt Plug.

Parked in the lane to the south and then walked though a few fields up to the trig, avoiding the fields with grazing cattle and keeping clear of the electric fences.
