HISTORY: Pillar completed 1st May 1948 costing 13.14s.6d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SE02/T48 in 1948. Levelled for height to Class 1 precision tertiary standards during 1962. Last maintained by the OS in October 1980. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from ENE. Ample parking on north side of road just west of Stanbury at SE006370. Headed SW up Back Lane to join the Pennine Way. Continued up PW until reaching the ruins at the side of Delf Hill. Then a random route NW until locating the trig which is north of the true summit. Pillar in fair condition, minor surface decay but otherwise good. Spider contains grey plastic disc fitted by Jon Rouse, 16/07/2000. Flush bracket faces east compass measurement 101. Three sight holes open, north face remains plugged, innards filled with debris. Full 360 open outlook.

A wet and blowy walk up from Ponden Reservoir via the spectacular Ponden Clough - a much quieter route than the tourist route via Bronte Falls. True broody 'Bronte country' weather today so not much of a view. Trig has plastic plug and a small crack running down one side from the top but otherwise ok.

Visited whilst out on a trigging and caching walk. Easily accessible and highly visible. Although not on a right of way path there is a walked path from behind Top Withins that takes you directly to the pillar. Pillar in good condition and is a nice view point over the surrounding moorland. After visit followed another walked path to the cache at Alcomden Stones.

Fantastic walk starting from Penistone Hill over Oxenhope Stoop Hill to join the Pennine Way to get the jawdropping sight of Top Withens from above. Good path now climbs to trig on Stanbury Moor from just behind the ruin and another leads roughly ENE from it to rejoin the Pennine Way for the return via Bronte Falls. If you are going to visit Top Withens I'd strongly recommend this route (i) 'cause it's quiter than the tourist tramp via Bronte Falls and (ii) Top Withens disappears into the moor behind as a silohette if you climb up to it, but if you approach from above it is laid out below you in its setting. See the photo if you don't believe me!!
