Parked on Nightingale Road in Blackrod and made the short walk to the summit. We then followed rights of way to Haigh, which made a pleasant walk. With JT.Sprog16/06/2019

Bagged this most unremarkable urban tump with the Blackrod tump from BlackrodWayne Mac15/06/2018
Horrible litter strewn pub car park. If the car park is that horrible I would not want to drink or eat in it.clivevilla12/04/2018
Pub car park. Had a look over the wall (fence?) to the school grounds, could be higher but not definite.jonglew25/12/2017
1st of 7 tumps & 1 boundary today. Train to Manchester Oxford road, Train to Bolton then 575 bus to Aspull. Walked up Haigh road, turned right and I was on it. Explored corner of pub car park but banking half-way down is higher. Car sales back yard is lower but right at the back it is comparable, next to tree Stump, primary school ground looked as high. Continued to Blackrod. Wigan completed.Dazingdale25/11/2017
Uninspiring but at least the pub was open and the beer wasn't bad.IWC08/09/2017

So is it the back of the primary school, back of the pub bar park or back of the Haigh car sales car park??. Whatever, yet another unsatisfactory urban tump summit.vegibagger08/10/2016
The primary school playground seemed higher than the pub. School secretary kindly showed me the high point.Campbell Singer17/03/2016

Last of day. Parked in car park and walk a few yards.PeterD10/10/2015
Right in the corner, not much higher than the curveTor worth it10/10/2015
Pub car park summit - in corner behind a parked cherry picker. Haigh lies atop a rich coal seem - once mined. The Leeds - Liverpool canal skirts the slopes to the west having climbed up 23 locks from Wigan.Chris Pearson31/07/2015

Long trek from one end of pub car park to NW corner. Pub not even open for a jar.ngthack01/02/2015
School's out for some reason.Martin R24/12/2014
On 1:10k map it appeared the adjacent school or house garden may be higher but on the ground the fence corner at edge of car park looks higher (maybe because it has been raised slightly), Short bag, long log!RHW05/09/2014
Top end of Balcarres pub car park; a grotty spot.Aye Jimmy28/07/2014
Highest point is in the back corner of a pub car park by recycling bins. Charming. Continued along the horrible fast road to Blackrod.Jake99406/03/2014
Revisit to get a picture of the summit in the back car park of the Balcarres Arms in Haigh. Also visited the nearby church to collect a bench mark and some more photos.Dugswell210/02/2014
I don't have a conscience regards how near I park to the summit of urban 'hills' so for this one we just parked on the pub car park (Balcarres Arms in Haigh) and walked to the top NW corner of the car park where it is scruffy and overgrown. At the fence corner in the undergrowth is as far as we could get to the centre of the 160m contour (SD 60645 09054). Sad to relate, we didn't even go in the pub for a gill.David Gradwell15/06/2013
