First visited 28/02/11. Re-visited trig point on 28th and 29th July to try and restore it. My building skills aren't up to much but I did my best and also gave it a lick of paint.

Parked up a grass track on the apex of the main road corner, only 200m from pillar. Over a barbed wire fence. Badly eroded top, good views.

Stands on a very sturdy plinth - a bit over the top as the ground seems firm! However, the rot has really set in around the spider leaving it completely exposed.

Getting around the local trigs. Nice day for a short walk.

As others have said, the top is badly damaged, and parking isn't easy on a pretty busy road.

Snow and lots of wind!
16th Jul 2005 11:55 by ted
Plug replaced by cover; trig on plinth; spider exposed but firmly attached. Views over Blackburn and towards Winter Hill. More cotton grass than rushy.

Parked in the pub.

...on the last day of November. My first logged Trig Point on this site, and a place full of atmosphere. Bit too much traffic noise from the Blackburn Road for a high mark.

Top is damaged - probably vandalised. Visibility down to around 60 feet so a fair appraisal cannot be made of surroundings.
21st Jul 2004 15:17 by fasgadh
Cracks in the concrete have let water in and as a result calcium salts have been leached out of the concrete, redeposited giving the pillar a tufa shell. As well as this someone has had a good go at trying to remove the spider. Easy walk over the moors from the one parking place I could find.
