Sure I'd already logged this...but evidently not. So many trigs to do round here I should have done by now. This is a beautiful place, from Dovestone through the conifer wood and then a clamber up access land. South Pennine umbeliferous with grey with pale blue skies coming in from the west just in time for a golden finish to the walk.

HISTORY: This monument to map making was built during May 1940. It was completed on 12th May 1940 for a total cost of £4.2s.9d. In 1945, this triangulation station was computed during the reconnaissance of Secondary Block SD80 (Manchester) as tertiary triangulation station SD80/T10. In 1958 the bench mark on this pillar was valued for height to Class 1 precision at tertiary levelling standards. This marker was last maintained by the Ordnance Survey in February 1980. SITE VISIT: Open parkland with adjacent monument. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre has broken open asphalt. Flush bracket faces NW, compass measurement 330°. Vented through NE sight hole. Full 360° panoramic view. Part of a 24 trig stint around the northern outskirts of Manchester. Part of a 24 trig stint around the northern outskirts of Manchester.

Second of two trigs, first one at Wild Bank. What slog up the slope through the heather to get to the trig, but it was well worth it for the views of the Cheshire Plain and the moors on the other side. Had a pleasant chat with what seemed like a mum with two late-teenage daughters sitting next to the trig, they had recently taken up hill walking and were enjoying the view too. Cooked lunch there in the adjacent curved shelter, trying out my son's gas stove, hot spicy Mexican rice which made Manchester look almost acceptable. Never seen so much Himalayan Balsam on the way back to Hollingworth.

2nd visit to the trig, first visit on 2/5/2011 and the view a spectacular panoramic out over Manchester, North Derbyshire, Cheshire and even Liverpool cathedral through the bins on that occasion. Not so fortunate on this visit, very poor visibility and required GPS navigation back across to Swineshaw moor. Trig Point looked to have been visited by somebody with a can of pink paint, its a pity it wasn't a large tin of white !! (score based on previous visit and memories of the view)

From Featherbed Moss directly across the moor to Chew Reservoir then along the road that descends the spectacular Chew Valley. At Charnal Clough I took the Oldham Way around to Intake Lane. Along Intake Lane to a fingerpost directing you across the open access land at the foot of Alphin Pike. Instead of taking this PROW I instead took the obvious but unmapped trod that climbs up the hillside in a SW direction before turning SE higher up. It was then a case of following this trod all the way to the pillar. Not having read previous logs it was fortunate that I'd approached from this direction as the pillar is partially buried in a stone built shelter obscuring it from view if approached from the opposite direction. Exposed faces are in good condtion but the cap has been replaced with a plastic disc. Thankfully the FB is on one of the two outward facing surfaces. Fantastic views NE towards Aldermans Hill / Dick Hill monument and Saddleworth Moor. Urban views W towards Manchester / Oldham and rural views S towards Hollingworth were somewhat hazy otherwise I may well have awarded this an 8/10. Views E are limited due to the rising ground. Returned to Crowden by following the edge of the escarpment all the way back to Chew Reservoir then taking the PROW across to Laddow Rocks. This path becomes rather faint and picks its way through the grains. I eventually got fed up with trying to find a dry way through and therefore climbed onto one of the peat hags before following the higher ground in a generally westerly direction until I reached a fence. Finally followed the fence line roughly SW to rejoin the PROW at a convenient stile from where I could clearly see the pillar atop Featherbed Moss. Rejoining the Pennine Way I eventually arrived back in Crowden some 7.5hours after first setting out. This was a great walk with fantastic scenic variety which challenged my opinions of the Dark Peak as being little more than dreary moorlands.

The last of four trigpoints on a long trip north with CURRYSCRIM. Must be one of the most difficult pillars in the Peak District – certainly by our route from Dove Stone Reservoir straight up through the woods from Hey Top. No paths up here through the near vertical heather by the broken wall. The weather had been great all day put it started to rain as we approached the trigpoint and shelter. Not wanting to return down the now wet route through the heather we continued along the ridge towards Wemberry Stones expecting to find a path back down to the car park. A lady with local knowledge said there was no easy route down and advised us to walk onto Chew reservoir and back down the track. This route is about 5 miles from the trigpoint to the car park. We ignored this advice and headed down the steep gully to the west of Wemberry Stones. This nearly required a call to the air ambulance. It was still raining and I slipped on the wet rock – luckily I just ended up with deep grazes on the arm and thigh and ripped trousers. Try a different approach – possibly up from White Lee as suggested by Bridgeman. A great trigpoint but not seen at its best due to the rain.

4/4 Last one today with What's the Point and one I won't forget in a hurry. He has written a very accurate description but I will add one or two bits. Although there is a path heading eastward from the pillar it does not appear on my 0L 1 map. On the positive(?) side, a kind lady gave me her car park ticket which saved us £1.30, I found a torch at the pillar, and WtP found a pack of cds on the descent soon after his near mishap. A cup of tea and a pint later was my thanks to WtP for an "intersting days trigging.

Took the path through a gate just NE of Noonsun Hill that looks to be heading nowhere (there are 2, I took the more NE one) and followed a trail taking me uphill through fields just south of Greave. Once over the final fence (at a wood boarded section) and on to the open moor the path is obvious as it rises to the trig. Trig on a small plateau but view a few yards away from it are terrific. I continued along Wimberry Moss along a very obvious path to Chew Res, did a tour of Dovestone Res and finally visited the War Memorial on Board Hill before returning to the railway station. Absolutely lovely area in todays good weather. I wonder why any of the footpaths aren't shown on the OS maps, they're very evident (I do know they're not ROW's). No cars, on foot.

Alphin is a totem in my world as I was brought up in Greenfield in the valley bottom. It was the first "mountain" I climbed as a small boy with friends. We knew it was a mountain because it had a trig point on the top. An image search after my last visit led me to the T:UK site. Today was grim with driving mist on the summit and heavy rain on the way back down to the village, but there were still a few hardy souls to be seen on their way to the top.
