The cloud hovering on the tops with a skirly wind - unexpectedly marvellous. Last walk of the year and last Marilyn in our local area we have not visited - despite some of the write ups this is a joyous linear fence walk, easier to walk on than some other moors such as Totridge, parts of Kinder. Haunting moss blackened siting pillar coming in and out of the cloud.

Third visit to this Marilyn and trig. I expected the hill to be a lot drier than it was after our dry summer but yesterday's rain left the path of sorts beside the fence very wet. Walsh Fell running shoes were great in this sort of going thought.

Parked in the small space near the cattle grid at the remains of the Cross of Greet. Went through the kissing gate which leads onto the access land covering White Hill. Followed along the fence directly to the summit & trig,wet underfoot in places which needed a bit of fence hopping & bog jumping but nothing too hard. Quite good fun,as long as you dont end up misjudging it & getting a boot full! Nice summit,with decent views & survey tower to add a bit of extra interest. 1hr 30mins car-trig-car.

Flush bracket S5002 was levelled for height also in 1948. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in 1976. SITE VISIT: Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with hard resin / tar.
