O: Arrow on summit boulder is not an OS benchmark - none shown up there on any 19th or 20thC maps.

O: This summit should be a joint border with Calderdale UA. The Boundary line follows the watershead here as opposed to the Penine Way path/ trig point clearly in Rochdale UA. http://communities.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Compare/storytelling_compare/index.html?ap

Approach from S, via fb over M62. Lots of gritstone boulders around summit area, including the impressive 'Robin Hood's Bed'.ger17/02/2019
9 mile Circuit from car park at western end of Baitings reservoir over Cat stones, Dog hill, Green Withens Reservoir to Pennine Way crossing with M62. Back along Pennine Way and then Old Packhorse Road. A lot of permissive paths about that aren't on my old 1:25000 South Pennines map.JulieB17/02/2019
With E. From the car park by Windy Hill transmitter. Potholes bad but all the rubbish left = sad. Bridge high over M62, good stone slab path to trig point then across to large boulder. Took me a while to find OS bench mark on boulder then scrambled onto top. Bright sunshine and windy.Beeliner17/02/2019

From The White Horse CP on A58. Cloud down, wet, windy. Very bleak. Arrow on the summit boulder is unlikely to be a benchmark as no datum seen, not the usual OS style, and none shown on any old maps. Possible it's the old trig show on old maps at the hill summit.jonglew23/01/2018
