Easy little stroll with the 4 little ones. Spent a good couple of hours exploring the woods. First hill since lockdownThe-Z-Man14/06/2020
Large National Trust car park to the east, but, if you are lucky, there is a parking area 250m further west at the actual start of the summit footpath. Wide, easy path to the somewhat reluctant to reveal itself summit. Filming for the SKY drama, Galaxtica taking place with sounds of gunfire, flashes and other random strange noises.moorsman05/03/2020
Did during a hike from Holmes Chapel to Alderley Edge. I wandered around the various possible high points mentioned below. For what it is worth, my GPS recorded SJ 85934 77583 as highest but the GPS signal was badly affected by the trees.Alan Moore19/01/2020

150 ms from small car park in pleasant woodland. Saw Jose Mourinho's car in Alderley Edge.Campbell Singer17/10/2017
The summit was only a sideshow on this visit, searching out the sites from Alan Garner's books. Sadly, not quite as magical as I'd hoped but still a fun couple of hoursColin Crawford08/06/2017

2nd hill of the day on the way back to Nottingham from a trip to Mount Manisty from Birkenhead. Parked up at the National trust car park and then explored from the estimated grid reference stated and the highest point i got was a position just off the path next to a scots pine tree at SJ85933 77583. My gps read 202m however it often over exaggerates. Other 'high readings' but marginally lower were taken on surrounding knolls at SJ85947 77579, SJ86041 77625, SJ86092 77634 and finally close to the path again at SJ86084 77659. I didnt visit the Beacon but I will be back!Dazingdale28/05/2017
Mound in trees behind building at SJ 85895 77454 read higher on GPS than mound with damaged plaque.andrew brown10/04/2017

First visited in pouring rain as a teen but have since come here a lot after moving over the hills. Such a magical place, quite intense with so much to see and explore. Not a hill to rush over.Jake99410/09/2005

The very first place visited in my Grand Tour of Britain of 2005. Wandered around summit whilst searching for mines and caves, and enjoyed the first view of, rather than from, the Peak District I'd had in years.DanHolme03/01/2005
