Although I've walked along Stanage Edge on several occasions I'd never visited Standedge Pole. My intended route across the heather from Robin Hood's Cave was closed for conservation so instead made do with an out and back from Long Causeway. An unusual trig but other than that the views aren't especially striking (just the usual upland scenery). I've recorded it as damaged due to the metal clamps around the wooden pole.

Bit confused...no trig as we know it. But as it was part of an enjoyable walk with a couple of mates Paul and Tracker Dog, no matter. Views ok all round, but press on to Stanage Edge and it gets far better. Subsequent visit 26/9/12 spotted possible benchmark carving on north facing boulder below the pole. Has this been interpreted as a trig?

It sits on a bit of plateau so views are a bit restricted. Sign from the Park Authority on the mini-fence asks you not to use the path going south (as indicated on the OS map but not as a ROW) across White Path Moss.

Quite an unusual trig. Although it is called Stanage Pole here, it is actually named Staneage Pole. For some reason it is spelt differently to that of Stanage Edge.

Very interesting site. Pole marks a drovers way with some of the carvings in the rock dating back hundreds of years. About 30 mtrs towards Stanage Edge, in the heather, is a hexagonal gritstone block set into the ground with carved lines joining the points. Covered with pile of stones. At first I thought it would be a geocache. ?? what is it?

Resembling a telegraph pole on a gritstone base, this is a triangulation station but theres never been a triangulation pillar here. The pole is presumably one of a succession; the metal strips are perhaps a lightning conductor and theres a rough-cut benchmark at the base. Since theres no provenance such as an OS passive station record then maybe this site doesn't really merit a distinct entry in TP:UK albeit that its of general interest. Stanedge Pole is described in the OS benchmark database as an intersected point. Typically, these seem to be church spires, chimneys and flagstaffs but a few, usually monuments, are still marked on current OS 1:25000 maps with the familiar triangulation symbol. Local examples include Cholera Gardens, just E of Sheffield railway station, Stoodley Pike, Castle Hill near Huddersfield and Wainmans Pinnacle. A few other non-pillars (for example bolts and rivets) are similarly depicted on current maps and its unclear if these are an accidental carry-over from earlier editions where the triangulation symbol was used to denote a greater diversity of stations, or if the likes of Stanedge Pole retain a special significance.

This one is an interesting anomaly and hence the log. On the current explorer map of the area you will see a nice blue triangle with a dot in it. On the ground is a 30ft high pole attached to the rock with remnants of a lightening conductor. I suspect this is in fact a sighting make similar to many church spires though why it is marked on the map as a pillar is an interesting question for others to understand.
