Nothing to add other than to confirm that it is still there and remains in a good condition.

(408) Been meaning to have a look at this monument for some time, and learning that it was a trig-point meant it was visited today. Close to Sheffield station, and can be seen from some distance away. Great views from the monument itself, and situated inside a nice little park. Might have to re-visit again once the weather turns better.

Visited to check on the geocache I own here. The sun was setting so the view of Sheffield was beautiful.

A sweltering day in Sheffield where people were busy making the most of the fountains and the rest of us attending Graduations ceremonies.

Great views over city and beyond. Recent development of path towards Granville and path on hillside below linking to Amphitheatre development. Peaceful place to sit and ponder. Information board provides historic insight.

The Cholera Monument is a memorial in Sheffield, England, to the victims of a cholera epidemic of 1832. 402 victims of the disease were buried in grounds between Park Hill and Norfolk Park adjoining Clay Wood. Money from the treasurers of the Board of Health was set aside for a monument for the site. The monument was designed by M. E. Hadfield, sculpted by Earp and Hobbs and completed in 1835. It is a neo-Gothic pinnacle and has a plaque naming John Blake, Master Cutler in 1832 and a victim of the epidemic and noting that the foundation stone was laid by poet James Montgomery. The monument is situated in gardens laid out around the monument in the 1850s and next to Clay Wood, an ancient woodland. These were given to the city by the Duke of Norfolk in 1930. A shaded path built between 1971 and 1995 traverses the woods and leads from Fitzwalter Road to the monument gardens. The monument was struck by lightning in 1990 and the top removed for safety, rebuilding began in 2005 thanks to a grant and was completed in 2006. A clay cobbled mound art installation was erected in 2004 representing the individuals who lost their lives. The monument is grade II listed, and the grounds are a conservation area which had received a Green Flag Award.

Reported destroyed by OS 09/91, probably because the top half of the monument was lost to a storm in 1990. Now rebuilt with funds from the Heritage Lottery - works completed in 2006. Undergoing further repairs.

Steps from the station then past alms houses to the monument. Good views across the city. Lots of info about the cholera outbreak and the burial grounds. No obvious rivets, bolts etc

An interesting monument in a quiet corner of Sheffield just a few minutes walk from the railway station; most recently visited at the end of 2011. Significant from a trig point of view for two reasons. Firstly, it is still marked on recent OS maps with a triangulation symbol. Secondly the OS trig marks database flags this as destroyed with the remark 'Destroyed 09/91'. But Wikipedia says "The monument was struck by lightning in 1990 and the top removed for safety, rebuilding began in 2005 thanks to a grant and was completed in 2006"
