14:00, 10 degrees, not much wind, mist. From car park to south via Pennine Way, White Hill and fence. Boggy, cane in ground is probably the 'summit' feature. Worth it only for the exercise and company (Miranda).Wycombe Wanderer03/11/2019
From the pot holed car park to west, along PW to trig and then followed fence and on to flat top.PeterD25/09/2019

Approach from CP (by A672),to W.ger17/02/2019
With E. From the car park by Windy Hill transmitter. Potholes bad but all the rubbish left = sad. Path to White Hill (Moss Moor) trig point then fence line to summit where someone has left a small stake to mark. Also went to small cairn (SD9992814045) just to be sure summit bagged. Not too boggy for time of year. Bright sunshine and windy.Beeliner17/02/2019
With SDT,JRT & ADT jnr. From the potholed car park by Windy Hill transmitters. Over M62 and passed Green Withins Reservoir to Rishworth Moor (Dog Hill trig pt). Followed by Blackstone Edge. Back to car park. Then Way Stone Edge (via White Hill trig pt).ADT10/11/2018
Parking area at SD983714222 then ran along P/Way to White Hill. NE across moor to summit. Nice moorland + dogs startled a mountain hare on the way back. Ran with Mart + Pete plus dogs. Cracking tripJohn Eley10/11/2018
Revisited as I have not been that way for a while, I don't remember the trod along the fence from before but it does make it easier. I cut across to the A640 afterwards because I wanted March Haigh (Unlisted). That required a lot more effort.Aimless Rambler28/10/2018

On way home from watching football at Shelley Community FC near Huddersfield.Longwojo07/07/2018
Dusty Springfield had a hit entitled In the Middle of Nowhere. Now I know where it was written. Approached from the south where there a few car park spaces. Rough moorland but thankfully frozen and not wet bog. GPS essential today in the thick fog.Campbell Singer09/01/2018
Parking area just S of junc 22. Good track through snow to trig pillar then across rough snow-covered haether and tussock grass to the HP.jonglew27/12/2017
Blizzard conditions but just enough light to bag this one after pillar.Dusty25/11/2017

walked from Marsden station up to join Pennine Way where it crosses A640, followed it to White Hill trig pt and then turned east across boggy col to summit, which is very flat and bumpy at the same time. return was more direct and boggier and more tussocky.9 miles.IanHHill25/10/2017
From car park on the A672 just off the M62. Over White Hill and rough terrain to flat summit, visiting a few other high points as well as the official summit.RobertP06/08/2017
From CP on the A672 just off the M62 J22. Burger van may be available. Straight forward up and back via the Penine Way. Surprisingly windy today.Newton Maximus15/06/2017
From east after Blackstone Edge and Rishworth Moor.Wheelsy22/12/2016
Walked up from stile on A640. Always wondered what was up here from drives past on the M62, ultimately a bit disappointing - heather, bogs and no definite top, but Kirkless completed :)the_adam26/11/2016
1st hill of five on a very tough and tiring day on a route from Marsden to Slaithwaite cutting across the Buckstones to Buckstone house and then direct to the summit. Snow underfoot, 2ft deep in places. Got 482m on gps having navigated direct to grid ref. Very indistinct top. It looks as though there are several contenders for the summit. This is a really boggy area but the snow covering and cold temperature on this visit may have actually helped in getting past the terrain. Will visit Way stone on separate occasion. Dropped down and across to the Pennine way en-route to Blackstone Edge.Dazingdale20/11/2016
Only suitable close parking to the south is a small pull-in, suitable for a single car, where Chamber Clough reaches the road (Alt 1443ft). There is a wonky stile over the adjacent fence, then it is a slow walk of half a mile over tussocky grass and clumps of heather which, today, was thankfully dry. 0.94 miles return, 40 minutes. The top, quite genuinely, could be anywhere. Visited the spot height then a couple of what appeared higher places. A place to visit only once.moorsman21/10/2016
Circular walk from Marsden via Buckstones and White Hill.berksbantam15/08/2016
13.1 mile walk from White House pub, walked along road and turned onto path along side old water channel, then took another footpath left which eventually climbed onto Dog Hill, walked south along trails to next old water channel and followed it Green Withens reservoir, then along path to join Pennine way towards Windy Hill mast, then along to White Hill trig and across rough and boggy moors to Way Stone Edge hopefully covering the summit, then back along M62 bridge and followed way across Blackstone Edge (previously walked in 2005) and back to pub. Hot, clear and sunny, got badly sunburnt.DanTrig18/07/2016
Rishworh Turnpike Inn for breakfast then parked just along the roas in the car park next to Booth Wood - Booth Wood - Rishworth Moor (Dog Hill 435m& Trig)- Green Withens Reservoir - followed water cut off to Pennine Way Bridge over M62 - White Hill & Trig - Way Stone Edge then back past the farm in middle of the M62 to get back to the Booth Wood Reservoir and car.briandavies05/06/2016
With Tumpmeister from A672 car park. Concur with current HP assessment (NW of fence corner). We eventually located the small cairn after romping back & forward along the summit ridge.Smudge23/04/2016

Crescent walk from road to the west.fine day but unpleasantly night. These Pennines hills are better left to frozen winter days.vegibagger27/09/2015
Via PW A672 and White Hill. HP is a fair way from fence. Good views of M62 from the Way Stones.arranc05/06/2015
Ran up from carpark near mast. Bit of snow.stever07/12/2014
With Jo, walk from Blackstone Edge Reservoir: permissive paths to Rishworth Moor, then via Green Withens Reservoir and M62 fb to White Hill, out and back to Way Stone Edge (Moss Moor)(various tops), returning over Blackstone Edge plus tripillar. Weather cloudy at first, sunny later, warm throughout, very good visibility.amblerbob11/07/2014
Parked to the SSE by a gate and went in across the moor which appears to be of very poor quality and being reseeded with grass.simon and co07/05/2014
Parked easily to W. Followed good track to White Hill then off piste. Moorland was surprisingly quite dry considering the weather. Decided direct route back. Mistake. From the 'brook' long grass hummocks and leg sized hidden holes to put leg down and get somewhat damp and messy..destaylor28/02/2014
Along the Pennine Way over White Hill then pathless to top but not as wet as I expected.Mark Sims25/02/2014
Run with Peterichardsun12/01/2014
Date used as default. These hills are all on my doorstep and regularly walked - although this particular one I think I have only done twice as it is on the fringe of a day's walk.Aimless Rambler20/08/2013
Parked on layby by A640 at junction with Pennine Way at SE 00253 12314. Lurden Top - White Hill - Way Stone Edge - March Hill - back to layby then out and back for Millstone Edge. Terrain to Way Stone Edge from White Hill then down to road at SE 00293 13156 nothing like as bad as expected although no significant rain for a couple of weeks. Visited 'official' summit GR and 482m spot height c340m east. Highest point could be anywhere and probably is!David Gradwell05/05/2013
From Windy Hill via trig. Return by beeline route means crossing boggy ground in the dipBramley03/05/2013
From car park on A640.bolton16/04/2013
From the A640 to the SE. About a km walk across frozen peat hags and bog. Top very flat over a wide area. Went to official featureless summit but there is another contender about 100m to the E at a small cairn. Both same height on my GPS.Aye Jimmy24/02/2013
