On a dull blustery day and yet still a view of some several miles. Can only imagine how a clear day looks. 2 sizeable chunks from the crown of this pillar. could do with a lick of paint too.. This, I believe to be my 499th pillar.

Well the trig's ok but the moor from Whetstone Gate to the pillar has been trashed, even some of the flags have been moved. Looks like some sort of (motor) bike 'event' has taken place between the road/track and the pillar with sections of huge, wide, deep ruts in the moorland. There must be places where landowners let you desecrate moorland legally but some scumbags just don't give a sh*t! Latest of innumerable visits, and sadly the most depressing.

One of the best walks on Ilkley Moor I've ever done, at last visiting the moody Twelve Apostles. Hopefully go back soon, good luck to anyone caught up in the storms.

Menwith in the distance, views are great today, Wolds and Hambleton Hills, Great Whernside, Pendle, Dark Peak and West Yorkshire. Staying grey and stormy over the Three Peaks.

HISTORY: Pillar completed around March 1936, cost unknown. Computed as primary triangulation station PP70 as part of Figure 2 within the OSGB retriangulation network during 1936. Levelled for height in 1962. Last routinely maintained by the OS in 1986 but continues in service as a GPS passive station. SITE VISIT: Approached from northeast. Free public car park off south side of Wells Road at SE115469. Followed mapped footpaths via SE118467 and SE122452. Top of Ilkley Moor, well used open access moors. Many footpaths upgraded with flagstones to combat erosion. Pillar in good condition. GPS plate removed or stolen, between 10/07 and 4/08, ref various TPUK photos. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces WSW, ~243. All horizontal sight holes plugged. Full 360 panorama with long distance views in some directions. Three notable landmarks on the distant horizon are Drax, Eggborough and Ferrybridge Power Stations.

Walked up and round from Ilkley - a bit of a slog on a bleak, dank and slightly wet Friday tea-time (in mid-May!). Trig in good condition with concrete plug and missing OS plaque - one of the original 'class 1' Primary trigs from the 1930's and as such deserves respect. A bit misty but local landmarks still visible. Excellent views down into Ilkley on the way up and way back.

A great trig. Came up from Ilkley via Ilkley Crags and the Dales Way Link and approached from east. If you can save this for a clear day like today I would...I could see for 50 miles, to the east the three mighty power stations of the Aire, the disused one near Doncaster, the Yorkshire Wolds, Menwith Hill, Bardon Moor, Pendle Hill, Leeds, Bradford, the snow covered Dales to name but a few. Trig has v slight damage on top and someone has nicked the OS plaque. Followed the now newly paved path towards the masts to the W and then followed the road and canal eventually to Crossflats and the train home. In short, this is trigbagging at its very best.

Easily accessible and very visible. I approached on well walked mooland path from Whetstone Gate passing radio mast along the way. This is Gods own country. Pillar and moor belongs to me [together with about 300,000 other Bradford Council Tax payers!]. Pillar in good condition considering the number of hands and feet that must touch it in any one year. Glorious heather clad moorland views. [Photos from a visit on 27 December 2008]

Most recent of a number of visits, came today across from Silsden - the weather wasn't too bad today and visibility was reasonable so the photos show an inprovement from the visit on 05.02.2006. Further comments are from the March 2004 visit. ----- There's a fairly decent walk on Rombald's Moor if you just go high on the moor to avoid the 'plastics'. If you leave the trig and head towards the radio mast beware the bog that has been really compounded by the moronic mountain bikers.

Revisited on the way to Wicking Crag (a non-pillar station - see photos).

Rombalds Moor - view across Wharfedale towards Menwith Hill.
Wicking Crag - map Wicking Crag is marked with a triangulation station symbol on the OS Keighley and Ilkley Sheet SE 04/14 Pathfinder 671 1:25000 1983 edition, at SE129434. It doesn't appear on any more recent maps and is not in the Passive Station database.
Wicking Crag - the location is on Bingley Moor, approx 1.5 miles SE of the Rombalds Moor pillar and is hardly a crag - just a scattering of small gritstone outcrops. The site is quite easy to find - follow the right of way between Rombalds Moor and the Bingley Road to a point roughly mid-way between two stiles in the boundary wall. Then aim west for the local high point. Good views including Almscliff Crag in Wharfedale and Wainman's Pinnacle in Airedale, both of which are also marked on older maps as non-pillar trig stations.
Wicking Crag - the station is a bolt, just over 1" diameter, set in a boulder. The remains of flaking white marker make it easy to identify.
