Last of three trigs of the day. Walked from Kinder Low to to the dramatic Kinder Downfall which was a mere trickle, amid two helicopters dropping seed and fertilizer. Had a good chat with H & S officer warning walkers, saw other walkers and quite a few D of E schoolkids doing their treks. Five minute walk W then strike N to the trig, easily spotted but quite easily missed I should think in bad weather. Trig had Tibetan Buddhist style flag bunting hanging from it, plus what looked like an old trig lying at its base; how did it get there? Views tremendous, could see Manchester in the haze and spotted a plane land at the airport, with binocs. Back S and to Barber Booth via Jacob's Ladder. A tremendous day walking with my mate, Tracker Dog.

God it's bleak up here (but I'm slowly learning to love it). Almost refused this walk today as Kinder was amongst the cloud when I parked the car. Some mist upon reaching the top of Jacob's Ladder but the cloud soon broke. Not having read previous logs before bagging this one I was delighted to find it was BOGOF on trig points today !! An out and back from Barber Booth via Jacob's Ladder and Kinder Low. Followed Pennine Way around Kinder Downfall then immediately after passing through a gate headed up hill on a bearing of 012. Trig soon comes into view but you'll need to climb a wire fence to reach it.

An interesting trig this one, as the flush bracket has a south pointing arrow on it, and the peat has been well eroded away revealing the base of the thing, epic. Great trek up from Edale station, went onto bag the trig on Brown Knoll too. Follow the route of this trek by tapping fell finder into Google.

Plastic plug. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. Excellent circular walk from Hayfield: up via Stony Ford, then along the edge of Kinder plateau on Pennine Way, descending William Clough. Pillar not visible from the path & necessary to go onto the moor to track it down. Not easy to spot until pretty close to it. Peat no problem in dry spell, but would be much harder in the wet. Superb location, but area much eroded - apparently the peat was once packed up against the plinth.

Left from a deserted Bowden Bridge and up William Clough. Definitely in the clouds by the time I reached the edge so finding the actual pillar was fun. (It eventually appeared less than 20 feet away. Brownie points for that!) And wow! There are two of 'em! Interesting trip back. It's nice to see a Downfall that isn't my own, but with an easterly prevailing for once it wasn't pissing into the wind. Bit my lip avoiding Kinder Low. (I've trips north first! - It's a man thing!!!!)

Revisited during the Dark Paek 15 Trigs run, starting from Glossop, this was our 2nd. http://gofar.org.uk/ Reviewing my pics I have only just noticed the old dead trig! OS trig marks archive say was PP027, 1936, rebuilt 1945. No mention of an earlier FB; I gather there is no record of its number. Graeme Paterson comments: <As all one hundred of the S15xx series are accounted for, it is most likely that this older FB from 1936 was originally one of the _29xx series. I think _2960 and _2983 remain unaccounted for.>

Second one today and quite easy to find. I believe the first trig toppled in 1944, probably due to erosion and the replacement was erected in 1945. Not often you get 2 for 1. This is my second dead trig in the last two months. If this is a primary why is it listed as having an S? We remarked at the time of our visit on the absence of an S.

Fairly recent coat of paint. Trig set on stone base in a sea of peat and stone. Previous pillar lies alongside.

What a poignant trig point this was, especially with the mists swirling around me. Initially I though the plinth was empty, but it was just hard to see the white pillar against the white background. Walked up the Downfall from Hayfield and revisited Kinder Low as well - great day. www.lonewalker.walkingplaces.co.uk/trigs

Tucked away only about 200 metres N of the Pennine Way (follow a post and wire fence). Worth a detour to see the current trig's father lying dead at his feet. The Trig is dead. Long live the Trig.

Pillar is very exposed on it plinth but in good condition all the same. A previous Pillar lies sinking into the peat at the foot of the current trig. Good walk across the bog now it is dry enough to not sink every other step.

I like this one, with the 'dead' one lying by it's side. I'd say that, since the original was errected, about 6 foot of peat has been eroded away, that's about 1 inch per year!

Walked from Kinder Low to The Edge and left Rosy at the downfall to rest with the ravens and very pushy sandwich sheep. Painted white and set on very eroded foundations. There's a dead trig at the foot of this one. Views not so good as the peat has eroded away and I'm not tall enough to see above it. Plug replaced with plastic insert.

I think my mate thought I was a little mad dragging him away from the views of Kinder Downfall to this boggy trig. I sat on the old prolapsed trig to have my lunch. At least there were no sheep badgering us for morsels here!

Does this count as 2 bags or just 1 because of the old collapsed trig. There is an S on the flush bracket inbetween the BM. This was a quite hard trig to find close up to it but it is very visable from Kinder Low. If you are looking for it and don't have a GPS go over the fence and you will soon see it.
