Holiday Friday, decided to give my new trigmobile Astra a run over the Pennines on a sunny day. Easy to find country park in Royton. Today it was very popular, although a lovely spot I had to share the trig with many others. Located through the woods from the car park near to a war memorial. Missing plug filled with litter, but no graffiti and good views of the Pennines, Manchester and the mountains of N Wales if clear. Shame about that huge wind farm, maybe that could be used to power my scalextric while ruining the view. Will look for this point when hopefully on the Pennine Way this summer from Blackstone Edge.

I parked at Tandle Hill Country Park Visitor’s Centre and walked through the park to get to this. A great place. Crowded today by the centre, but once into the woods it was lovely. You step walk out of the woods to meet the war memorial, toposcope and trig and a great view round 270 degrees. A day with 4 really good easy trigs today. Wonderful!

Hey. This is inbetween Oldham and Rochdale. Pierced by motorways. And lovely! Made a day of it by starting west of the 627 and threaded across. Ok - a brief spell of reality when we met the meat packers having a smoke break, but once we gave up on the path AROUND the fishing ponds and went amongst them... (Strange hobby!) And we saw a fish!! OK, perhaps not that unusual, but it was a big 'un. Then a ... can't avaoid it ... enchanting wood before emerging at the summit to a great view. (Yes I LIKE Manchester. And Jodrell Bank.) Continue down and you find ... The Tandle Hill Tavern!!!! OMG. This journey has a whole new meaning.

Parked in the car park and walked up to this trig and the monument. Also bagged the two nearby caches. Quite a spectacular location with the nearby monument - on slightly higher ground? Everything in good order except that the plug is missing. Now continuing my walk to Hey Farm, Crow Knowl and Birshaw if I can find my way.

Excellent views, including across the city. Dog went for me on the way up, so I kicked it. It will think twice next time. Got the usual, - He does not normally do that. - from the owner. The truth is that all dogs hate me - they smell the fear as soon as they see me.
