Large free car park & toilets at 987199 - Up Beacons Way & then path to summit. The small cairn near the edge has disappeared, but there are a few stones on the hump about 80m to the south at SO 00564 20647. This appears to be of a similar height & matches the location given by Bridge and by Buxton & Lewis i.e. 005206. (S)gerrybowes28/09/2015
