A walk through very boggy fields on a bridleway from Longnor before a sharp ascent. More gentle descent to Crowdicote. Then on to Sheen. Misty, so missed the views.

My 50th trig! Parked in a layby opposite the entrance to Wheeldon Tree Cottages. Took the footpath to the base of the hill, and followed the well trodden path to the summit. Whilst no official path, enough trig hunters have visited to carve a set of foot holds up the side, making the climb slightly easier. Fantastic views, though quite exposed to the wind at the top.

On the way home I bagged a couple of trigs with heavy fog closing in and the light failing. We started the day by visiting this pillar. Visibility was seriously reduced but I recalled the amazing views from my original visit.

Ten trigs bagged on the way to and around Buxton with a total of thirteen miles hiked for the day. This was the seventh and easily my favourite of the day. Already on high ground I parked on the verge near to Wheeldon Trees Cottages to see the pillar perched on the top of the adjacent steep hill. I took the PROW for the short walk to the top with great views of other peaks along the Ridge and the valley. In some ways I found it reminiscent of Edale Valley. The pillar is the stone type and is in good condition albeit the original centre for the spider has been replaced with a plain disc. It has commemorative plaque confirming the pillar was gifted to the National Trust and honours the memory of the fallen in WW2 from the Derbyshire & Staffordshire area.

I found the Fox Hole Cave (scheduled monument 1991). The earliest human remains in Derbyshire were found here. It is 30m N below the summit and gated. The passage opens into several chambers. Todays trigs are dedicated to all the NHS staff. Thank you.

Walked up from Longnor, a tough climb up the steep side of the hill on a rather blustery day. The views from the top were impressive in the ever-changing light. Descended over the other side of the hill, which was a lot less steep! Felt so exhilarated after this one that we went on to climb Parkhouse :)

Yes it was rather chilly - was glad of the woolly hat!

this has to be one of the highlights of the year,a superb view of the dove valley,i have been up before in very cloudy conditions so i was pleased to have great views!approached this from the stile opposite the cliffs,a short,very steep staircase to the top,extremely windy,one not to be missed,great views of parkhouse and chrome Hill revisited a few times since 2013 ,one notably on the eve of my 50th birthday with my daughter on the 21/07/22,we approached via the North side and descended on the opposite side,a very steep descent!!!!!

Walked to this one from Buxton after scaling near-by Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill. A long walk in blustery conditions, but worth it for such a great little hill. Nice Trig - stone built with a plaque dedicated to the local fallen of WWII.

Walked across from Longnor via PROW at SK088651. Trig soon came into view across the other side of the valley. Ground surprisingly soft underfoot. Crossed the Dove at Beggars Bridge then along Green Lane. Entered access land at SK098663 for the long, slow climb to the top. Like many of the hills around here, High Wheeldon is rather imposing and very steep. Stone built pillar in good condition with plastic cap and a memorial plaque. Excellent views, particularly to the reef knolls of Chrome and Parkhouse Hills. Now heading over to Sheen Hill.

Walked from Longnor via Parkhouse and Chrome Hills then Hind Low and Brier Low. A fantastic days walking with glorious spring weather and an outstanding trigpoint to finish with. A highly recommended route – the two ridges may not quite be Grib Goch or Sharp Edge but surely the Peak District’s equivalent.

Trig point 2, (after Hardings Booth), on this glorious day. Parked on the road, down and then up, up, up. A bit relentless, but what a reward. Now I'm a dyed in the wool Dark Peak man who has always considered the White Peak to be for pickicking softies, but I have to admit from this glorious vantage point I could see nothing but fabulous pointy topped mountains. Who would have thought it. The Quiet Woman closed so we retreated to the great-pub-overloaded Longnor after a pork pie from the magnificent Post Office/grocer/ greengrocer/ cheese shop/sweetie shop. Worth the trip alone.

Stone pillar. Plastic plug. Public. National Trust. Peak District National Park. Magnificent hill, towering above stunning countryside of upper Dove & Manifold valleys. Ascent from west would be hellish steep; best way up is clear path from east. Pleasant walk over from Longnor.

Parked east of the trig near a climbers cliff face, this was busy this Saturday afternoon. For the safest route to the top follow the wall all the way up, there was a well trodden footpath up the hill but this became quite steep and I felt the wall route was much safer for the journey down the hill. Great Views on this windy day

not far from the northern end of the high peak trail. - said trail having many trigs very close by. A short steep climb to the trig across access land (donated in 1946 according to the trig plaque). Local roads pleasantly quiet for bicycling (low gears + good brakes essential) - hartington conveniently close for bacon butty. Dove valley at pilsbury eerily populated with burned out jcbs /tractors /pickups

Walked from Parsley Hay via Pilsbury Castle.Good views. The photographs were added on a return visit over eight years later on October 27th 2012.There were broken fragments of a stone gnome atop the pillar. The walk started at Longnor and took in the Dragon's Back (Chrome Hill and Parkhouse) and topped off with High Wheeldon. An excellent walk on a cold but sunny day.
