Would have been on ridge-line. We only ventured as far as sighting ridge-line GR from the adjacent public highway.

I think that this pillar has been removed by the landowner. I have visited it in 2012 and others have been a few weeks ago but there is a suspicious hole where it should have been.

From gate to SW. Kept out of sight of the hall whilst at the trig as I remember a few years ago the owners requested that the pillar be removed from T:UK as they were unhappy with people visiting it.

Access of Devil's Lane through the small wood. there is a trodden path that takes you into the middle top half of the wood. Odd brickwork chimney still standing - remains of small building maybe. seemed weird! Continued to the end of the wood and climbed the fence where the TV aerials are. up across the field to the pillar. All metal intact. view across to Harracles Hall - quite a splendid brick building. Back the same way to overcome the fence, but used the edge of the field against the SE face of the wood to get back to the road.

The second trigpoint on a route taken from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. Walked up from the corner of the wood and over one barbed wire fence. Lots of sheep with new born lambs. Mist still limiting the views on an otherwise great spring day. Continued onto Hilly Field.

Done on a walk from Ladderedge. Ascended Devil's Lane and cut through a wood to bring you out in the field used by previous visitors. Barbed wire fence needed care and I was mobbed by a load of ewes and lambs at the trig. Good views on a pleasant walking day.

Access was not too difficult. We parked just past the wood after the sharp bend. Across one field then an easy barbed wire fence/stone wall to get to the field with the trig in. At the trig you can be seen from the hall but the rest of the approach is OK. Good views. Plug with indented lettering.
