Hiked to this one after bagging the Trig on Axe Edge Moor on a 14.8 mile circular stroll from Buxton railway station. Went on to bag the Trig on Shining Tor next. You can follow a detailed walking route and write up of this walk by typing Fell Finder into google.

There are undoubtedly quicker and easier routes to this pillar than the one I took but few of them can be as scenic. From Derbyshire Bridge car park along Goyts Clough to an unmapped bridge just after Berry Clough. Crossed this bridge and continued along the opposite bank passing a fantastic wall of ice at Goytsclough Quarry. Upon reaching a wall I turned uphill to the point where it meets a track as the wall breaks left. Excellent views over Erwood Reservoir with a heat haze evident - has Spring finally arrived ? Continued East, crossing a couple of deep cloughs until I met another wall running North-South along Burbage Edge. It was tough going across the heather and snow. Headed South along Burbage Edge where the pillar eventually came into view (rather cunningly disguised in white paint against the snow). Original metal cap with raised lettering. There is a chunk missing on one side at the top but otherwise in good order. Excellent if foreboding 360 degree views. Axe Edge pillar clearly visible.

Fairly easy to reach this one. Theres a well defined track running from north to south alongside a wall. Came from the north starting near old railway tunnel. Good all round views

A quick up and down from Burbage.

Simple enough. Wet walk along the path from the old road. Good views. Did at same time as Axe Edge.

Not so much how we did it, but that it was done at all! The irony is that not so populat tracks such as the circular route from the Goyt Lane car park, (achieved after a diversion because of a road closure between Buxton and Whalley Bridge), are now far more eroded that the revived popular routes. Still, that certainly didnt detract from the younger members of my five strong assault crew. Good views from the top. Goyt Valley. And the Cat & Fiddle. So near. Too late for food at the Bee Hive so back to the Hanging Gate which was awash with unnecesary Halloweenary. Again, a big hit with 40% of the party. Still. School holidays over for surely another fortnight at least!

Walked over from Shining Tor via Errwood reservoir. Good views over Buxton. Continued onto The Cat and Fiddle Ė this didnít look far away but it took an hour to get there.

walked with bike up old road from Derbyshire Bridge and over to Buxton. Left bike by fence and followed paths North to pillar. Wet ground - had to pick way round worst sections. Excellent views.

Metal plug [raised letters]. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. Moorland-edge trig, easily found on short, circular walk from Burbage church. Footpaths clearly defined, if sometimes boggy.

Parked on Macclesfield Old Road for a pleasant short walk up and across the hill to the trig point with the kids. Ground was a little soggy in places which made it more fun, and the scattered sheep do seem to produce a lot of output... We realised we were on the wrong side of the wall and fence as we arrived, but soon found a suitable crossing spot a little further along then strolled back to the trig point to enjoy the views before continuing on to the Burbage Edge geocache.

2/3 on Challenge walk. Approached from the South along the wall. Good coat of white paint makes the trig visible from a distance. Superb all round views on an increasingly warmer day.
17th Mar 2009 16:30 by RoPeHe
Pillar in good condition, complete with all metalwork. Plug has raised lettering. Pillar evidently recently repainted while. Good views, but a bit murky as the fog has hardly lifted all day, even though the sun is finally trying to break through. Approached from the south by path off Macclesfield Old Road out of Burbage; continued north to drop down to the former High Peak Railway.

This was our second attempt, having tried it a couple of years ago from Buxton. Approached from Goyt Moss. Painted white with lovely views over Buxton. Metal plug with raised lettering.
29th Jun 2008 14:29 by gushoneybun
Great views, I think! It was nice on the way up we got to the ridge and the sky's opened and the wind was howling. Grabbed the cache and its number and set off back down the hill.

Cold a drizzly this morning. Good views.

nice walk up from buxton, lovely views on beautiful day. the trig as slight damage to one top edge.
28th Oct 2006 13:15 by ted
Painted white; good condition other than minor damage to top. Plug intact with raised lettering; two sighting holes open. Interesting location with windswept trees but no views today.

Nice view of Buxton, but blowing a bit and lashing it down with rain, not too boggy yet, but getting there.
20th Aug 2006 14:44 by John Riley
This one stood out white on an overcast wet and windy day amongst the purple heather. There is very slight damage at the top edge but I guess the general condtion is good. I approached along the wall side from the South having run across from Axe Edge.
3rd Jun 2006 10:45 by theblack
The trig is in good condition apart from a minor dent in a top edge. The cap is still in place. Views are good. A path leads along the edge of the wall although we took the direct route across the moor not knowing the path was there.
3rd Apr 2006 21:19 by stonestreaker
came from the south, up below the fence, down above the fence, both boggy, one grassy, one heathery. logged as slightly damaged-see photo

Been to this one upteen times, one of my locals. Always painted and well kept. Approach from the south is always boggy, even in a drought!
14th Nov 2005 09:50 by Bridgeman
I approached from the south which proved rather boggy. A better route would be to park at SK023751 and follow the railway path south to just 50m short of the tunnel. Branch right on a path to contour around to a small gate then uphill, initially steep on a narrow path to the trig point. Trig point recently painted.

Approached from the Cat & Fiddle and Derbyshire Bridge.

Popped by on my way home. Got told off for being there by one of the local rangers, as the moor is private land, managed for the Duke of Devonshire's grouse shoot. This area will, however, be opened up as part of the "Right to Roam" act. It seemed ironic that the National Park, who owe their very existance to public protests against shooting land being defended against access by the riff-raff, should now be the ones doing the defending! However, right up until the time when new legislation forces them to allow access, they're "just doing their job". Oh to live in Scotland!

On a 11 mile walk from Derbyshire Bridge out to Fernilee and back via Goyts Clough.................Revist 25/11/06 to photgraph and bag the new nearby cache

Great views over the Goyt and across to the Cat and Fiddle. Footpath not marked on the map, but well trodden from both the north and south. COuld well get a bit wet under foot in the winter.
