This trig point was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. Parked on lane near Green Nook and walked up strip of access land to the main moors. Followed fence line east to trig point.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 7th May 1948, cost not on record. Computed as fourth order triangulation station SD80/T143 in 1948. Levelled for height in 1963. Last maintainedby the OS in August 1979. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from southeast. Public car park on SE side of road at SD693129. Entry path to access land is found just east of Bryan Hey Reservoir access. Followed the boundary lines along the edge of the access land around the top woods then anticlockwise around woods to trig. Some fance hopping is necessary. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces east, ~98. Vented through west and north sight holes. The 225 panoramic view spans from north through east to southwest. Return route bypassed the woods loop.

Parked at end of farm track, up to farm house knocked on the door but no one answered. Struggled to get up to trig the best place is to go to the right of the house up the steps and over barbed wire fence. Decent view on a sunny morning.

Parked in car park on A675 crossed the road and went left to walk up from access point on a rough path towards Winter Hill. Cross fence + wall below woodland to contour round towards visible trig above small holdings.

Good views south over Bolton and Manchester. Parked on Coal Pit Lane, walked up Access Land path to kissing gate at top. Turned right and over metal gate to reach remains of stone wall. There's a path of sorts to the west of this wall. Followed the wall, which bears left after a while to reach the trig as the wall starts to descend, with lots of rhododendron bushes about.

Walked down the ridge from Winter hill, then climbed over barbed wire fence into a triangle of grassy land overlooking farm. Nice spot though.

No plug. Private - there are a couple of farms nearby. Hard to see what actually is 'Whimberry Hill', as the pillar is oddly located on the hillside below Winter Hill. Not easy to access from above - it means either crossing the barbed wire fence from the Access Land, or walking along a boggy strip of 'no man's land' between it & the broken wall at the top of the field. Trig just beyond the large rhododendron bush.

Used access strip to west, through two gates then along the fence. The fence veers left, away from the wall, although I think the land to the right is access land. Crossed the fence and walked to the trig, which is just over the tumbledown wall on non access land.

Parking for one possibly two cars where the open access land comes down in a narrow spur to the road. Easy if wet out and back that could be combined into a somewhat wetter visit to Rivington if time allows from the same start point. Trig just off the wall line overlooking a small farm with signs of rhodedendrons in the area
