I spotted the trig pillar whilst driving to Earl Sterndale to bag Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill. I quickly pulled over and ashed straight up to bag itdazedemon17/02/2019
10.8 mile circular from Parsley Hay, followed minor road and footpaths to Carder Low via Vincent House farm, from Carder Low followed footpath to Pilsbury Castle Hill then followed unofficial path through the access land to road at Crowdicote, from bend followed path up onto High Wheeldon (2nd time visited), then onto Aldery Cliff with easy access back to the road east, followed footpaths north-east to High Peak Trail then followed this back to Parsley Hay. Deep snow for majority of the walk, this looked amazing with the cloudless skies today, temperature ranging from 0 to -5 all day, with a cold wind.DanTrig02/02/2019

From Pilsbury castle Hill and on to Aldery Cliff as part of excellent walk from Hartington. Hazy views. Stone trig on top. Steep grassy sides. Fox Hole cave below is an ancient monument and is secured by a gate to protect remains of paleolithic man- pretty amazing.Denise 04/06/2018

1st hill of 9 today on a circular from Longnor. After cake and Coffee We Took the minor road leading to Crowdecote and Followed the steep winding road leading to the access land from where We Followed a minor path on the flanks upto a fenceline with a short steep pull upto the trig. Bro' Took So long that he aroused the curiousity of a herd of Friesians who chased him off their land. Conditions at summit were cold and wet But weather started to clear. We Took the west ridge down to join path leading to minor road opposite Aldery cliff.Dazingdale04/10/2014
From due W of hill at SK 0974.6611 near stile. Only 300m to summit, but up steep unrelenting grass slope. Nice grassy ridge at top, and trig with plaque. A small cave just down the ridge is gated to protect items of 'archaeological interest'.Aye Jimmy22/06/2014

Been up here a couple of times, as it has a fine, tempting triangular shape from several angles. Easiest way is by parking at side of road, quick jog down, quick jog up. Fox Holes Cave, on the north side, is worth a look.DanHolme01/07/2012
