Good viewpoint. Pity the trig's gone. I agree with John Riley and painterman61 about the possible location of the trig - NW of the large cairn is a slightly raised patch of land.

I'll be honest, it wasnt until I went on here that I even knew there was a Trig on this lonely hill at some point in time. The cairn was good for a moorland high point, and the old way pointers were intersting too. Bagged this on a 13.4 mile circular walk from Walsden bagging three Trigs in total. You can follow a detailed write up and route by typing Fell Finder into Google - thanks.

Old maps indicate trig stood within 400m ring contour, just on Lancs side of boundary with Gtr Manchester - this runs along Rossendale Way. So-called cairn just pile of rubble - one wonders if it contains bits of the pillar. Public. Access Land - roam freely across open country above Watergrove reservoir. Make for obvious col between Middle Hill & Brown Wardle, then strike up left to summit. Long-horned cattle on hillside.

Theres certainly no remains of the trig here. Worth climbing up here for the views though.

Gone to 'the great trig home in the sky'. The nearby boundary post acts as a sort of surrogate trig. Very, very badly eroded area - probably the worst I've come across on all my travels. The top and surrounding area has been desecrated by off road motor vehicles with deep pitted and very wide tracks. Very poor weather today with low cloud hanging on to the top of the moor making the mood even more depressing. To add insult to injury I lost my digital camera on todays outing - I doubt I'll be returning in the near future for the photo's!! The trigs still shown on my 1983 Landranger map.

Grassy top; cairn and stone posts but no trig. Previously visited May 1988 - wasn't there then either. Still raining.

There must have been at one time as it was shown on old maps but there definitely hasn't been one here since the mid eighties when I first ran in this area. Nevertheless its a good place for a run or a walk.

There was a pillar here in living memory. According to the OS the FB no was originally S4450 and this was later rebuilt as 11076. It was demolished due to repeated vandalism. There is a pile of stones to mark the site.
