Not easy accessible. Came off the road put of Warldow right at crossroad over 1st gate on right towards nature reserve and head for the opening in the trees, still 2 barbed walls to get over, good views at top, plug missing on pillar, fairly good cond. Back down headed over fields north, 3 wall to hop over, farmer to avoid, sheep, cows, dog that wants to round em up, lots happening, met footpath east to wardlow or west towards woods towards ravenscar, nice walk through woods. Got back noticed (ora,ge) path on map south of reserve further along road than where we wall jumped maybe access easier there??? Good fun, short walk never the less.

Bright chilly day with patches of snow still clinging to the hills which enabled Extra Shorty to build a small snowman on the Cressbrook Dale edge. Walked from Ravenstor, through the rail tunnels then up the dale doubling back along the wall to the access gate on the NW corner of the Wardlow Hay Cop enclosure. Nice views on an airy perch and having climbed from the dale felt well earned.

As others I parked to the south at the gate to the nature reserve, followed path up quite easy to follow to start, then seems to disappear (or maybe it was just me) Pillar is in good condition and there are some great views, looked great this morning with the mist sitting in the valley.

It's going so well this wonderful May Day, that I can fit in another. Drove past,(not easy to do!), and down where the voyeurs were supping at Monsal Head, and then up through Hay Dale. It's obvious where to park. (The Nature Reserve seems much more extensive than on my map.) The best Trig of the day by virtue of the field of Wood Anenome with a smattering of Yellow Archangel at the last thrutch to the summit. Deserve this. On to Litton and the Red Lion of that parish. Great pub. Great May Day.

Old Man's birthday trig - probably stupendous views if it hadn't been so foggy! Good parking and straightforward route up from SK180733 through Cressbrook Dale NNR - access land, on a path which also goes through to join the ROW at SK176745 and allow access from the N. N and W s/holes open, E also has a small hole in it. Metal cap (v scratched) shallow letters, otherwise vgc.

Blue sky. Some mist in the valleys. Walked from The Waterloo on the A6 via Litton Mill and Cressbrook Dale. I jumped the gate to the north marked no trespassing and continued south along the wall then over a couple of walls to the pillar. On the way down I was intending to head for the permissive path described by others but I got spooked by a farmer feeding sheep so ended up by the crossroads. Would have been better to have headed south west from the pillar to get to the access land and Hay Dale. Continued onto Sough Top via Monsal Dale. Logged with android app.

Visited with Melch whilst out walking in the area. We approached from the cross roads to the east which involved to crossing of a double barbed wire fence. Returned to the south on the much easier permissive path route. Pillar has quite a commanding position with all round views.

Came across from High Rake via Coombs Dale. Trig was clearly visible from quite a distance. Headed down into Hay Dale and picked up the permissive path on to Wardlow Hay Cop. Lovely views in the fading winter sun. Back to Great Longstone via footpath west of Longstone Moor then down the hill along a walled lane.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Public. Access Land [Wardlow Hay Cop]. Peak District National Park. Very prominent hill & trig. Approach up Monsal Dale & Hay Dale, from where there is permissive access across farmland. Then it's a short steep ascent over grass to the top.

Done on a walk from Monsal Head on a glorious Spring day. I went over a small (padlocked) gate at the top of Cressbrook Dale at a junction with a bridlepath which heads due east towards Wardlow. At this point, the trig is not visible,but ascending south easterly up a short steady rise it appears quite spectacularly giving superb all round views. For the next 5 or so miles, we could see it upon the skyline. A well earned pint at the Monsal Head Hotel was the perfect ending to a cracking day.

There is access via a pedestrian gate at SK 18015 73309. It is difficult to park just there without causing obstruction so best to go 100 meters futher down the lane where there is a place for one car. Follow the track uphill until you get to a gate, though the gate and tuen right towards the ruin. Walk left of the ruin and slightly downhill to another pedestian gate. Through the gate and head right and up through trees to the top.

Cold today or what!!, blasting northern gale, so put on a pace, to keep warm. Had started out from Monsal Head, and along Monsal Dale, walking out west first of all, along the River Wye. Then returned on the other bank, back to the viaduct. Then Struck north to Wardlow village. You can see this trig for miles all around.
