Started this walk near Barrow Bridge chimney, up the 63 steps and onto the moor. This was West Pennine Moors at its best. A lovely sunny day and a clear objective of the Winter Hill furniture.No 3 of my project to photograph the Lancs Agrics class of '79 next to their local trigs, so thanks Jonathon for a great walk.

I had thought of using the access road to the comms installation. However, in cycling from Belmont toward Rivington I spotted the permissive path from the summit parking area and decided to walk this. Rather wet in places, filling shoes more than once, and a brutally steep last climb to the top. Despite the warm sunny day, the views disappeared into a grey haze. Fifth pillar of the day and reaching a grand total of 2650.

After a flying visit to Chorley with my non-caching brother, being so close to Winter Hill, and the impressive feature that I have wanted to visit for a long time, I just had to go. Unfortunately today, the visibility wasn't good, as we progressed up the hill, it lessened, by the time we reached summit it was reduced to a mere 20/30 meters. Having made our way up from the lay-by on Rivington road, and being this time of the year, it was quite tough going, we arrived at the summit where there was a lovely clean tarmacadam road. Then after a little chat to two men, who were sheltering from the wind, we continued to the pillar.

Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. The lofty summit of Winter Hill is quite a spectacular location, an obvious site for a trig pillar [plus numerous masts]. Good path up from SE, but there are many other ways up, including the access road to the masts. The summit itself is on the boggy side.

Visited whilst on the Winter (Hill) Solstice Geocaching event walk. Visited in the dark and freezing fog, so no views to speak of today, but still a very interesting visit!

Not my first time up here. Walked up from Horden Stoops, via the right hand (not quite so boggy) path. Carried on past the memorial and round via the gardens.

Didn't need directions to this one - just point your feet to the big stick on the top! Great stiff walk up to the top (little wet under foot) with excellent views in all directions. Ribble estuary quite clear.

On prime Winter Hill summit, with an array of very impressive transmitters and masts. It felt more like January than June, with a biting gale. The main TV mast was two-thirds in cloud, with fascinating notices saying beware of falling ice when lights flash. It almost applied that day, the longest day!!. Good condition, stone plug, OS Passive Station plaque. Public. Primary

Winter Hill. GPS plaque; Tarmac plug; recently painted, vgc. Top of the 'no S-prefix' series. Extensive views with (I think) Stoodley Pike in the far distance looking east. A short way S from the main mast is a tapered concrete pillar somewhat shorter than a trig but otherwise similar dimensions; metal plate on two sides (no lettering) - perhaps marking an old shaft.

Staggered up Winter Hill after a run at Watergrove. Pouring down, but the mist almost hid the masts. Direct descent to the Blue Lagoon was tussock hell, rather fun.

Winter Hill must have more masts than virtually antwhere in the country, although Alport Low in Derbyshire would come a close second.
