I didnt bother venturing up there, but could see from quite a distance that it had gone to the quarry.

Recorded as a missing 'drive-by', having driven past literally hundreds of times. I wonder if the Trig really was destroyed or whether it's sat in someone's garden somewhere ?

The Mental Health Act (1983) springs to mind. Why would anyone with (allegedly) a full set of 'marbles' hike miles to 'visit' (A): a trig that's no longer there (I can just about understand that - you might get a view or evidence that it was once there) & (B): The ground that it sat on has disappeared some time since & the area is a fenced off Danger Area. I'll come quietly doctor, I don't know why but it just 'had to be done'. There's access from the north via a gate 100 yards to the right of the bridleway and whilst the area is fenced off with a multitude of warning signs, just beyond the gate is a step stile giving access to the quarry (strange?). The quarry's an eyesore but there's a decent view over Cracoe to the War Memorial & the Rylstone Cross. No cars. on foot.

No trace on site: former summit quarried, resultant summit scenic but somewhat undercut - quarry edge: remaining summit is cut-away steep grassy slope

Gone - no big surprise. Swinden quarry has grown steadily over the years and is still active.

Edge of quarry The trig would have been just inside the present edge of the quarry. NOTE - I don't recommend anyone visiting this site for obvious reasons.
From a distance Trig was just beyond the current highest point. Cracoe memorial on the edge of Barden moor in the background.
map OS 1:25000 Malham and Upper Wharfedale (dated 1977) since when the quarry has grown significantly.
