The old name of the hill given by the 18th century Royal Engineer surveyors who first used the triangulation point. Surveying began from here in 1784 when a timber framework for a theodolite was used.
This was formerly the highest point in Cheshire but is now Derbyshire. The top is at a height of 582m/1908ft - check your GPSr.
The top is desolate, black (hence modern name) and usually very wet. It was when I set this v. cache.
To claim the cache e-mail me the serial number on the trig point and place a photo of the view when you post the find (this is now required). I will delete logs that fail to include a photo or send the requested information.
Important: Do not place a photo of the trig point number or mention it in the log - Thanks.
