Nice location. Pillar has exposed foundations but seem solid enough at present; some chipping and general wear on top edges; fairly recent coat of white paint has definitely spruced it up. Cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open. Lovely 360deg panorama.

Can't be many more "long 'ens" to do in The Peak District for me! The joy on retirement - being able to park at the Roaches on a sunny day. Made the mistake of taking the Hen Clouds path first, before realising this is up and down for no reason. Little sign of climbers on here. Congratulations I guess for leaving the birdies alone. Second attempt started with a bit of a quogmire, but a little better on the top. Still few climbers. Fewer still wallabies. (None!) Pillar one of those ones you can see from a distance, and refuses to get any nearer! Nearer caught by sunset, but put on a spurt and managed the lovely Lazy Trout in due course.

My first time on ‘The Roaches’ but I don’t think it will be my last. There’s room to park just north of the cattle grid at the bend in the road, north west of the pillar. From there it’s an easy climb up to the trig point along a paved path for the most part. The ‘ground’ around the base of the pillar looks to have been eroded away but I’d be surprised if there ever was enough soil up there for the base to have been covered. It was probably built that way. The pillar is painted white and in good condition, apart from the missing centre plug. At a recorded 1685ft above sea level, this is the highest trigpoint of my 2 day sortie into the West Midlands. The views are spectacular… or would be if it weren’t so hazy. Interestingly, there is a large benchmark arrow incised into a boulder close to the pillar. Evidence of an earlier triangulation, maybe?

Lovely area, and TP in same condition as before. Spider is open and the ground is eroding away from the base, but looks like it has had a new coat of paint recently.

Howling wind and snow just starting to fall didn't detract from the great views and then up to Lud's Church for the "Wow!" factor. Pillar itself seemed to be in good condition, plastic plug intact, some paint and no major damage, plinth is a little eroded, but no worse than many other "good condition" trigs IMHO.

I'd hired out Gradbach Youth Hostel for our traditional January trip for 60 of us. A group of 13 of us walked up from the hostel on this fine and sunny day, but only me took a photo of the flush bracket!

I like the Roaches. This is one of at least a dozen visits. I've seen a Wallaby once! (they escaped 40 years ago from a private zoo nearby). Went round in a loop and got 'Gun' as well. Pillar is OK. Public

Not a Wallaby in sight!

Quite cold in the wind along the ridge, but worth it for the experience.

Easiest access is from Roach End. Very windy on visit. Base of trig point eroded. (Numerous visits to this summit as close to home).

We did Valkyrie. It was ace. Then got sandbagged into something called the Pincer (its soft VS he says.....) no its not. Took a wee huff for a bit, and strolled over to the trig point for a fag and also to think up a suitable revenge for my intended victim ;-)

Me topped out on Pincer HVS 5a ©sky high boys

Visited the trig point on a circular walk from Leek. The Roaches are beautiful, even in the winter sunshine. A footpath runs right past the pillar, which is at the southern end of the hill ridge.

Very windy day - had to concentrate on staying upright on occation, and the Davidsac has given me a balck eye. However great views from here, shame I couldn't stay around long. Not 100% sure of the FB number, scribbled in much haste and no camera :-(( Central core thing missing
