trig points

Trig point on rock in Peak District

Fancy a different kind of challenge?

In 2019, Ben who has joined the Peak District Walks team set himself a challenge to walk to EVERY trig point in the Peak District National Park. His first challenge was to find out where they were all located and he created a spreadsheet with all the trig points on.

In total, there are 88 trig points in the Peak District.

You can find the full list below, with the grid references so you can see their exact location. Please note that some of the trig points are found on off-path locations and for some, you’ll need to gain permission to access the land (P).

Ben will be sharing the 30+ routes that he walked to complete the challenge and you’ll be able to find full details of the walks right here so you can complete them too!
