Last of day parked at the side of road which leads direct to top.Good views here spoiled by airel complex trig in vgc gps plaque resin plug.

Parked on the wideish verge to the East and walked up the very clear path. I chose to go part way round the top before heading up, but came down the fading path directly. It is a real shame this is marred by two large ariels, because without them it would be a fantastic spot. Even with them the views away are amazing.

Surprisingly nice area, but a bit of a dog walkers area. Pillar overshadowed by telecoms equipment.

Asphalt plug. Unusually, one broken hook. Public. Access Land. Vast expanse of rough grass & heather, providing great recreation for local urban population. Terrific hill, whose summit masts detract little from the scene & do not interfere with the trigpoint.

Visited this one whilst out on a walk that also called at Tandle Hill, Hey Farm and Birshaw. Pillar surrounded by a variety of communication masts but easily accessible on track going through them. Pillar has plaque showin that it was included in the satellite positioning programme. Excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

A brief family stroll from the B+B on the Denshaw side, where we were staying to celebrate my parents' Diamond Wedding. We could have chosen a better TP for such a milestone but it was a lovely evening and it was nearby. Pity we had lost the clue for the cache at the foot of the hill !

Good views all around, no pics as battery ran out. There's a plaque on the trig stating it's a monument to the OS.

Sit was only visited whilst I was at work on the radio towers. This hill has three on it. I have also been up here before whilst staying at a local hotel. The views from this hill are very impressive out across the north of Manchester and on into Lancaster. Also great views down the Pennines to the east. The hill also supports a wind shelter.

On Crompton Moor, excellent site near numerous masts. Stone plug, good condition, GPS passive station. Bit of a slog up from the SW, but a lovely day for it. Interesting stone cross shelter for a sit down. Public

I must have chosen the coldest, windiest day to visit this trig. I could hardly stand up never mind hold my camera steady. The all round views are fantastic and far reaching. I saw the sun going down over Manchester. Even though its not a particularly scenic area and everything is dominated by masts and pylons it is still very much worth a visit.
