Sunset after rain, nice place. My GPS put it on edge of ramparts of Sandal Castle although reviewing the 1960s photo it looks more central. Obviously a fair bit of new stonework since then.

Took my daughter and really enjoyed the visit. Lack of trig not important due to castle remains taking precedence. Good view of Woolley Edge, Emley (and Black Hill beyond). Interesting view of Calder ox-bow I have never seen before.

High score for a missing trig because of the wonderful location

Great place, very interesting. Quieter today than it was in 1460. Great views across to Pugneys Country Park & lake. Nice little Visitor Centre.
Castle Hill Sandal Magna View of the keep,the trig used to be on top. Nice daffodils.

One of three while out doing some shopping. Have been here before around the mid to late 90's when the trig was probably still there.

Good view over Pugney's from the viewing platform. Toilets and refreshments avalaible at the adjacent visitors centre.

GPS would suggest it was located on top of castle tower, under what is now a viewing platform - nice area and views.

We knew the trig was gone but the mound and ruins are well worth a visit anyway.

I am sure it was here when I was at school

A worthwhile missing and better view than many that still exist in the area.

A wooden viewing platform now occupies the site. Theres an album of photos at the Visitor Centre one of which (1960s) shows the trig on the top of the Keep.

The castle has had work done on it recently, there is a viewing platform where the pillar should be, and a visitors centre. Worth a visit even though the pillar has gone.
