I included this in an evening walk to visit this summit and High Hoyland Hill. The trig here was an added bonus. Can't believe I parked at the seat at Christmas without noticing this was here! Surprisingly good views here.

Circular run from Scissett taking in the Trigs at Pool Hill then Hoyland Swaine on a lovely bright February afternoon. Pool Hill Trig is just up an embankment in a corner of a field which is easily accessible from the road. The pillar is in generally good condition with great views of the surroundings.

What was a mediocre circular walk from Hoylandswaine turned out to be a cracking good day due to a heavy snowfall yesterday. Conditions were somewhat challenging in some places. Bagged this pillar from the layby with a bench, up a tiny bank and the pillar is just to the East. A gift to "milky coffees", the Italians know "nuffink". We were drinking posh coffees years before latte was invented.

(1630) Parked at the layby - enough room for a couple of cars - on Pool Hill Lane. Pillar easily spotted from there. Bit of a slippery climb, this time of year, into the field. Coat of white paint on the pillar is weathered and in need of being reapplied. Centre cap non original, but all else good. A nice and easy one to bag. Pillar history: Built on the 28th of May 1937, at a cost of 4 12s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in August of 1985.

Trig 2/5 Ackworth to Mam Tor Walk. Escaping the wild camp of Deffer Woods, Pool Hill was the early highlight of our second day. Easy access from road just a scramble up the embankment and a little nip over a pushed down barbed wire fence. Views over Barnsley, Wakefield, Woolley Edge, Emley Moor, Haw Cliff and beyond are truly sublime - how nice is our country? - so onto Denby Dale, Shepley and to Holme Valley campsite today. Haw Cliff trigpoint was for another time, but the evening in Holmfirth somewhat made up for that. Well that and Nick bouncing off his tent, but that's another story...
