From here follow the path (black dotted line on the map not the green right of way which isn’t on the ground) to reach the road. We then pass under the Bradshaw Brook railway Viaduct, which was built in 1848 and carried the Blackburn, Darwen and Bolton Railway over Bradshaw Brook. The summit can be identified by: ground by tree Additional Notes: All the walks up Williamson Park on Mud and Routes can be seen above. These pillars were introduced in 1935 in a project led by Brigadier Martin Hotine and for many years were essential in the production of detailed maps of the British Isles. Following changes to the Lancashire County Museum Service, the tower was taken over by Blackburn with Darwen Council.

They were constructed by Ordnance Survey to carry out the retriangulation of Britain from 1935 until 1962. Fiona Russell is a widely published adventure journalist and blogger, better known as Fiona Outdoors.As you head uphill here you feel like you’re heading towards Holme Moss radio mast which is in the distant, but eventually the path steepens and leads you across the plateau to Black Hill trig pillar. While slightly longer I’d head on the North side of the reservoir to avoid a bog where the drainage ditch on the south side ends. Anglezarke Reservoir is the largest reservoir in the Rivington chain to the west of Anglezarke in Lancashire, England. Turton Towers has a long and varied history with many famous occupants including Humphrey Chetham, who founded the famous music school in Manchester.

Staring at an OS map it occurred to me my home in Marsden was surrounded by Trig points at some pretty good locations – and so the 6 Trigs circular was born!A theodolite was secured to the top mounting plate of a pillar so that angles could then be measured from the pillar to other surrounding points. Trig in vgc plastic plug set on little mound plug missing wet underfoot on way up followed PROW marked on 1:50. Not proper rain but just enough to make my run along the route feel like it was perhaps not going to be completed. The categories are fairly self explanatory - my reading of "Converted" is that it was a pillar that has been converted to a different type of survey monument, e.

However, as anyone in the South Pennines knows, if you see a perfectly straight waterway marked on a map it’s an old waterway conduit and as such is highly likely to have a path running alongside it. Cotton mills, printworks, bleachworks, an iron foundry, and a paper mill were important industries in this part of Turton after the Industrial Revolution. There are good views here of the next stage with the Broadhead valley and the small hill of Hog Lowe Pike on the horizon.For example, you could hike, run or cycle to all the trig pillars in your country or region, or aim to reach all the trig pillars on one OS Landranger map. Ling Hill is a mountain summit in the Ingleborough to Blackpool region in the county of Lancashire, England.

I presume when that is the case and sponsors change there has to be as lot of messing about changing the name again? I took the view that if I didn’t have photographic evidence then I couldn’t include it in my “bagged” list. Followed well waymarked footpath past fishery,over electric fence,through two fields,turn right,across field,through gate on left and up hill to farm track.You can see from the height of the Trig Pillar (around a metre above the surrounding ground) there has been significant erosion of the moorland since it was erected in 1945. Yarlside is a mountain summit in the Penrith to Lancaster region in the county of Lancashire, England. Starting in Marsden village, the joy of this route is that it is possible to do as much or as little of it as you like. A stile from the road onto a public footpath and half a field of gloopy cow trodden mud and another stile and I was getting the best view ever of Blackburn Rovers stadium - perhaps it is named after a sponsor, I don't know? If you want to bag a trig point too with your little ones then try out my top 3; Beamsley Beacon, P inhaw Beacon and Brimham Rocks.
