Short walk following the stone wall on you right The Trig point is situated in the opposite field. The views are amazing on a clear sunny day.

Trig point at Eccleshill common, it's a forgotten one some damage to top brass fitting no plug and could do with a lock of paint. Easy to find good views and good place to activate on 2m ham radio.

A glorious, in fact too hot day. Struggling with heat rash as the evening comes in. A glorious walk up from Nidderdale, years after first planned visit Jenny Twigg. Indeed she is a grey lady. Curlews all over and a view to the North Yorks Moors basking out to hazy blocks of Teeside.

Parked just past the cattle grid and stalked uphill with the wall on our left. Pillar is in a lovely spot, with sumptuous views however the top is slightly damaged with deep cracks and a partially exposed spider 'vane'. A bad winter could see this one deteriorate significantly I thought. Returned via the same way then on to Bishopside Brae.

Approached it from the east following the wall that leaves the track to/from Grewelthorpe Moor at Shooting Box Allotment. This approach proved to be remarkably easy. I had expected a difficult passage across the heather but such was not the case. Excellent viewpoint for Upper Nidderdale. As per nearly every other trig point (Heyshaw Moor excepted!!) it could do with a coat of paint.

Dalesbus from Leeds/Pateley Bridge. Walked up from Lofthouse - its a pretty steep road - and thought Id attack it across the open moor from the wide track that runs towards Arnagill Moor. Bit of a mistake really as whilst its short in length its a bit of a cr*ppy plod. With hindsight I should have continued up the road and taken Garys (Sykesfamily) advice and followed the wall with it being on my left. After the tig I followed the wall along a faint path/sheep trail which was fine, to rejoin the track en-route to Sandy Hill - so if you come from that direction theres OK access. OK view from the trig but nothing special.
