1st trig of today's hike. After reading previous posts, I knocked on the farmhouse (the newer smaller building before you reach the big house). The guy who answered seemed nonplussed but granted me permission to visit the pillar. Reasonable enough visit, nothing too exciting.

Visited three trig points during an eight mile hike starting from Lepton and never straying to far from what is probably the most prominent trig point in the area - Emley Moor. This was the second and it is easily seen alongside the farm house as you approach. The lady of the farm was already outside and kindly allowed me to visit the trig point. It is in generally good condition and retains the original centre for the spider. Reasonable views.

As others, drove up to the farm and knocked on the door and the kind lady escorted me around the side of the house to where the pillar is situated. Pillar is in good shape but could do with a lick of paint. The lady said the Boy Scouts used to come up regularly and paint it but not for some time now. Whatever happened to Bob a Job week eh?

Drove up to farm spoke with Brian the farmer who owns the farm with his brother. He kindly let us visit the trig that's situated next to his house and also took time out to show our grandson his 3 month old calfs and also showed us round his farm yard. Trig in great condition with good views off in all directions and still retains all its metal work

(1638) Drove up to the farm, and met with the lady of the house - "Are you here for the trig-point?" Permission freely given to visit, and we both made our way to the pillar. As it's very close to the house, they are grateful when people ask. A nice chat ensued, and she even took photos of me at the pillar as well. Apparently the pillar was adopted by the local scout group, but they no longer bother with it. Pillar history: Built on the 10th of May 1937, at a cost of £4 14s 6d. Last maintained by the OS in October of 1985.

1/2 On a visit to Huddersfield, took in Castle Hill which was great for the surrounding views. Asked for permission at the farm and it was readily given. The lady took me down the side of the house and there it was, a couple of yards away in the corner of the field next to their garden. The dog was friendly too. Good views to W.

Pillar just a yard away from farmhouse garden. Chatted to very friendly and obliging farmer who gave permission and met the equally friendly dog. Great examples to the farming fraternity of how to engage with the public, (man and dog.) A good place to see Saddleworth Moor with a saddle profile and other Pennine features.

Walked up the drive to be met by a very friendly sheepdog that sat tight alongside me whilst I made a fuss of him. Owner was at work in her garden and seemed quite knowledgeable about trig pillars. After a very friendly chat permission was happily given to enter the field and visit the trig. Pillar is in good condition with metal cap and indented lettering. Good views of Victoria Tower to the west. Extra point awarded for the friendly welcome.

All intact. Drove up to the farm yard to be met by a very friendly farmer who was very bemused as we explained the hobby. Trig bagging 101 was countered with the problems of dung dispersal in very wet conditions which was building up rapidly in the barn.

Driving over from Greetland to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park (via Emley Moor Mast) we stopped off and visited this Trig. Met the house owner as we walked up the drive so got permission to visit. Great views - a lovely place to live! 236m. Me, Tee

Camera balanced on a fence post! A house right behind the camera, but a fabulous view over the wall!

I'd be lying if I said I actually 'tigged the trig'. Went down the driveway to get a decent photo but decided not to pester the occupants today. Access via the woodland seems the best bet (or perhaps just go up and ask at the house!)

Visible from a short distance up the drive but the trig is situated directly in front of the farmhouse. There was noone about and, after waiting a while to see if anyone appeared so that I could ask permission, made a very quick visit via the field edge. If the owners read this - my apologies! Trig well looked after; painted white with plug intact.
