Walsden to Rose Grove linear walk 2 of 5. Gradual descent from Freeholds along path then bridleway, then up the A road for a few hundred metres; followed by paths and off path walking to this top close to one of the many wind turbines hereabouts.JOHNS10/08/2019

Brisk NW cold wind hints of rain shower. Gently turning windmills.vegibagger24/03/2019
Amazingly good spot for 360 degree views of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire and even Derbyshire. Unable to count all of the hills that Ive completed that I could see because there was way over 30.Nick Caunt11/02/2019
From point 389. Plenty of parking. Easy going up wide wind farm tracks and over moorland for final 120 mts. moorsman's account is, as usual, perfect. Sadly, the views of the Calderdale moors are interrupted by large numbers of pylons and wind turbines. Nevertheless, Calderdale and the West Riding completed.Campbell Singer16/02/2018
...from Thieveley Pike. Mist clearing but wind turbines rather eerie drifting in and out of view.Descended to Cornholme for bus back to Todmorden. This completes my Calderdale Tumps.IanHHill02/12/2017
From SW. Good parking.jimbloomer25/09/2017
Roadside parking on the minor road to the east. Followed geology trail then track alongside wall to summit.mart079711/05/2017
4th hill of 5 today on a route from the Rosehill House hotel in Burnley to Walsden station, via Crown Point, The Singing Ringing tree,White Hill and Thieveley Pike, continuing on Burnley Way and then a moorland traverse to a fence onto a track over another fence to the summit. Pretty indistinct but easy enough. Dropped down to the track and followed it to the main road taking the Rossendale Way then Todmorden Centenary Way upto Freeholds Top.Dazingdale19/02/2017
An out & back short walk from the layby NW of Cornholme with grandson. Enjoyable couple of hours and good chatting with him.joseph mitchell17/08/2016

With Jo, linear walk from Portsmouth along Carr Road, Tower Causeway, Flower Scar Road to Carr & Craggs Moor (a couple of boundary stones marked D (Deerplay (?)) nearby, then through the squalor of Heald Top Farm, then prow across Heald Moor to Thieveley Pike, descending to Holme Chapel. Weather; sunny, cool breeze, good visibility.amblerbob15/07/2015
Parking available off the main road alongside the access gate to the wind turbines. Go through the gate and walk past the brick built control building. Immediately afterwards a brand new stone road leads parallel to the moor thus avoiding rough grass walking. Cut off to the summit at a convenient spot. There was a temporary exclusion zone around turbine 3 when I passed as it had caught fire and burnt out just before my visit. Path still open though.moorsman11/06/2015

As Aye Jimmy. Information board at start of track. Tells you that Todmorden Moor is a common & a place for peaceful recreation & to look after it. So what have they done? Allowed some vandal to put up a load of wind turbines.ngthack22/03/2015
Parked in layby on road to SW. Track, construction work going on with wind-farm. Branched off track and across rough moor. Flat summit of rough grass. Upright stone with 'D' on about 100m away.Aye Jimmy21/03/2014
Done solo. No navigation issues but the ongoing erection of windmills has meant there are a lot more tracks that what are marked on the map.Aimless Rambler25/02/2014

Visited on a walk from Accrington to Todmorden in thick mist. Very squelchy underfoot and needed to use the compass a bit due to lots of fences at the col with Thievely Pike.Jake99431/01/2011
