Left the car at Ashover Parish Hall and took the PROW from SK350632 towards Farhill, passing through a couple of charming stone built underpasses. Once on the minor summit I turned SE to the pillar. An interesting location with heather, rocks, toposcope, cold war bunker and obviously a trig pillar !! Edge of one arm of the spider slightly exposed and cap replaced with tarmac but otherwise in good order. Heading for Spitewinter next - wonder if I passed Desperate Dan heading in the opposite direction ?

Cold war bunker nearby. So did someone sit down there, waiting for the Russian missiles? I see they had an air pipe, so that was a good way for the fall out to seep down to them. Pillar looked good, the rock looked good, the May weather was crap, so I added some blue sky on the picture to chear it up

Easily accessible and highly visible. Joint visit with Carole. We parked at the road junction to the north and used the footpath to gain access to the area and were then surprised to find numerous paths that took us directly to a rocky outcrop and the pillar. Everything in good order. As others have said the original plug is missing though. A really lovely viewing area.

The easiest of the trig pillars visited today. There’s a convenient ‘lay-by’ just south-east of the road junction and a footpath directly opposite that takes you up to the summit just a hundred yards or so away. There’s an old R.O.C. nuclear observation bunker right next to the pillar. The entrance hatch has been welded closed, unfortunately, so you can’t get down into this one… A pity, that. There’s also a ‘Veiwpoint’ giving direction and distance to local landmarks. The pillar is in good condition, apart from the missing centre plug, the hole being filled with tar-mac. The views would be excellent on a clear day (as you would expect for an R.O.C. bunker location) but it was a bit hazy this morning.
