  G/HSP-009 - Chinley Churn

A large summit with a trigpoint at 451m which used to be considered the summit. However after re-surveying, the true summit is almost 1km NNE of the trig at SK03694 84371 and is at 457m. The trigpoint, although lower, is still within the AZ.

Report 1
 SK036827 - There is room for 2-3 cars
 From parking spot walk up and around to TX tower, which marks the start of the route. Follow the tarmac track to SK039830 and turn left into farmers field over the cattle grid. Take the distinct path towards farm buildings and follow it up to the first plateau. Follow this to the right and the path then goes left and back past a couple of trees. From here the path becomes indistinct, but if you follow it you will reach a stile. Over the stile and then sharp left following the path up and over the disused quarry. From here there seems to be no alternative but to clamber over the drystone wall to reach the trig. Some of the walk can be slippery with mud or loose stones when wet. Apart from mountain bikers on parts of the path, I was alone.

Report 2
 SK048850 - Opposite Peep O`Day farm. Room for 5 or 6 cars.
 From the parking place head West up the lane. Where the road turns left carry straight on up the lane. After about 800m and just before Hills Farm turn left and follow the track SW all the way to the summit. There are some large, weather-beaten rocks at the summit and supposedly a small cairn. I didn`t see the cairn but wasn`t looking for it.
