Knowing there wouldn't be a pillar up here dampened the walk up but once at the top you can understand why there was one,the views are superb and almost panoramic if it wasn't for a few trees with Alport,bolehill east mast and Crich stand in the distance.also appears to be a wildlife haven,a nice place,this needs a new pillar!!!

Second of day that was not there. But a pleasant enough stroll up from the west on a delightful September day. Score reflects the weather!

Met a lady walking, with 50 years experience of the area. She remembers the pillar, soon lost to the quarry. But then they re-filled the area, now new grassland over the spot where the pillar would have been, just west of the path, with the flat-topped spoil heap to east of path.

according to GPS this would have been slighly to the left of footpath near quarry, but no sign of it.

gps reading shows this trig would still be on solid ground to the left of footpath.

Trig point lost to open cast mining. On my old OS map but not on recent editions. I walked up from Marehay which was probably the best option as I think some of the footpaths from the east may also have been lost to mining. I took a look around the nearby spinny in cast the trig had been dumped there but there was no sign of it. The spinny however is a real oasis of calm and looked wonderful carpeted with bluebells. The Denby Pottery visitor centre is near by isv that takes your fancy.
