Having left Ipstones on route to Westwood Hill called in at the Cheddleton Railway Station. Trip back in time on a Sunday afternoon. Well worth a stop and visit. They have a brew shed but we did not sample the fare on this occasion. Westwood TP. this felt a little uneasy, I nipped over the metal gate in the hedge between the two bends on Rowan Rd. Both gates between the two fields heading in the trig direction were open and had rare breed sheep in. more reason to be concerned. Once in the corner of the field a relatively easy scale of the fence/wall to arrive at the pillar. All metal work intact. Reasonable views. Return via same route fortunately unchallenged.

Parked in large layby just north of Rownall Cottage Farm and walked back to Rownall Farm. Followed the path so far then bore right up and across two fields. Had similar problem as asbown but safely negotiated the barbed wire fences. Access is ok if you go to the field corner and over the walls.By passed the farm on return, much quicker.Good all round views. Could have been rough if ground was wet.

We approached this from the footpath on Thornedge Road. In hindsight I think it would have been easier from the corner of the road near spot height 256 (the house there is a ruin although the barns are still in use). The field was very muddy on the way to the trig but we did see two hares with webbed feet. Plug with indented lettering.
