Bagged during "The Two Thongs Challenge ( (c) Ron Plasma 2017)", a gruelling 3 mile hike which starts and ends in The Clothiers Arms in Netherthong. (Luckily there is a pub half way in Upperthong.) Can be completed in 90 minutes if you avoid Totties! Great fun.

Quite ingenious reuse of the pillar as a communal seating area, though now it would be rather awkward to use for surveying purposes.

A nostalgic return visit. This was my local trig when I was growing up and was visited many times then. Back in Holmfirth with junior Cipollini for the Tour de France and as we were parked on this side of the Holme valley I took the opportunity to pay my respects after cheering on Froomy et al. Lovely viewpoint as ever, but horrible commemorative addition to the trig. Needless desecration! (Photos to follow eventually)

This trig has been made into a seat. It's a bit skew-whiff, but a nice idea for a perch, and a good spot to enjoy the view- Emley Moor one way, Holme Moss the other. Plenty of roadside parking on the road below and a clear track from Wolfstones Heights farm.

This has undergone some work since last visits. Now has a wraparound "seat" commemorating the Jubilee attatched to it ......although it appears to be slanting and breaking away already. Path from road to the west has been bulldozed to make wider.....appears recent ....and more stone stored near pillar suggests there is some more changes still to come but not necessarily to the pillar.

Day 3 Ackworth to West Nab walk. Approached from Holmfirth via Hill Lane and Upperthong on a glorious day. While resting near to New Close farm we got chatting to the guy living there. Enquiring if it was ok to visit the trig we were told no problem as the land belongs to Charity. Easiest way is along a well used track from the E. Views glorious although the view of West Nab was obscured by the trees. Trig painted white and in good condition, very visible from the S.

This is a simple walk from the road and has great views, but, as stated by a previous visitor, the spray paint gang have made it horrible to look at (hence the low score). 323m. Me

Another from the floor (shame about the spray paint) This should have been a lovely trig, but graffiti really lets it down. Poor Trig.

Actually the trig is better than good, it's excellent and obviously cared for - well done to whoever. Nice spot with easy access from the road or through the woodland to the west although neither are marked as right of ways. Heather past it's best today. The abundance of tracks and dips in the immediate area leave me to think that it's a bit of a mountain bikers area at the weekend. Good views down the Holme valley.
