A grand day out! We crossed the ditch and up on to the bank. After chopping away some nettles, the top of the pillar was revealed which is level with the bank top. To read the flush bracket number meant dropping down off the pillar top, I think this might be a first. The pillar is well protected by the band and hopefully will stay this way. On leaving the pillar, we walked along the top and out on to the road at the far end. For future visitors, doing this in reverse would avoid the ditch and brambles. Thanks to What's the Point for organising bus times etc. for a most unusual trig trip.

I followed the quad bike track as far as a gate and turned left along a fence, over fence and headed across the heather in the general direction of the pillar via a large cairn. I am sure this would have been easier in better visibility and I would have given a higher mark. On my return, I noticed a small footbridge on the right and a green lane marker. This may give better and shorter access to the pillar. Given the conditions, I saw no sign of a quad bike track to the pillar.

Followed the footpath accompanied by barking hound who was on the other side of the fence. We stopped and had a chat with two ladies one of whom gave us direct instructions to the pillar. Neither of the two were indignant and were quite pleasant and chatty. On asking about the cemetery, I was told that it is now deconsecrated and there are no bodies remaining. There has been a lot of vandalism and the druggies have also been using it. She told me that the cemetery was built by a member of the Bright family and there is currently an ongoing court case regarding its future. On leaving the footpath, head east across scrub , bilberry bushes and through a broken down wall to the pillar. some traces of white paint remain and the views today were excellent.

Another year on, another Pershore Jazz Festival and another attempt. I visited on Friday August 16th and entered the field containing two very attentive horses. I walked along the lower edge of the field to and through a gate, up through a small wood and struggled over a wooden spikey fence onto the air field. I located the pillar after hacking away the brambles only to find myself on the "wrong" side of the pillar but managed to to get a photograph. On returning, I realised I had passed the pillar which was at the top of the field next to a disused ladder stile. I had been so distracted by the horses that I missed it and made a lot of unnecessary hard work for myself. I decided that on my return from Pershore that I would have another go and get more photographs by going up to the field top. The horses were even more attentive this time but I was succesful despite several tons of horseflesh breathing down my neck and nearly getting my rucksack eaten. A warning, if you are intimidated/afraid of horses, do not attempt this one. I parked at the entrance to Throckmorton Court.

Once there, the pillar is a few yards away, offers superb all round views and well worth the effort. As a belated footnote, I also met the gamekeeper on my return who told me I was on private land.

Unfortunately, there were no natives to ask about it.I walked up the bridleway/lane past Glebe farm and through a gate and down the field out of sight of the farm. Turn right through two gates at the bottom of the field keeping the wind turbines on your left and head North West. There are no paths but the ground was fairly dry at time of visit.

Nothing has changed since the last visit! I asked at the house next to the field as to possible access to the field and was told to ask at Throckmorton Court. The owners strongly advised against this as the four horses are thoroughbreds amd quite feisty. Access from the road directly opposite the pillar's location proved impossible due to a combination of thick vegetation and two fences including one with barbed wire. I thought access was possible from the airfield but locked gates and high fencing led me to concede defeat. If I had gone into the field , the thought of being accosted by several tons of horseflesh made no sese as the owner had said a visitor to the farm had ended up with a broken pelvis whilst legitimately inspecting the horses. Good luck to the next visitor.

Had a long chat over the hedge with the lady who lives next door to the new house who made a note of our website and seemed very interested. She said she would speak to the new owner about it. The pillar has some moss on it but still quite visible. Quite good views on a pleaasnt day.

Many thanks to Sven who made this pillar very easy to find with very accurate directions. I have carried on with his clean up using secateurs and the photos show before and after. Some damage on the right hand top corner. I have managed to expose some of the spider but I think a scraper is needed to remonve the remaining roots and hard packed soil.

In view of previous visits, I thought I would try a new approach. Last one for today and hard work. I drove down the track to Alrescott farm and parked off the drive on a farm track. At the resevoir compound, I climbed over a wooden gate and down into the compound. Up a steep grass bank, over a fence and into a wood.Using GPS,eventually found a wooden fence to the right.Over this and into a mass of brambles. Eventually, with use of secateurs and gardening gloves (ESSENTIAL!),I found the pillar,which surprisingly was not covered in brambles. No view to speak of. Don't want any more like this one.

Parked by a gate on the road to east of the nursery and walked up the drive. The owner was sitting in his pickup and I explained what I was looking for which confused him somewhat. From previous visitors' photos, I found the pillar by the edge of the adjacent crop-filled field. It is indeed a sad site lying on its side although I did manage to photograph the flush bracket. I had a long conversation with the gentleman who seemed genuinely interested in trig point and he was completely unaware of the pillar although it borders the nursry grounds. For future visitors, it might be wise to try and contact the nursery owners before going into the fields as he went inside to let them know I was close by. Although it is school holidays, the nursery is still open. He seemed quite serious about uplifting the pillar, although it is in the farmers field and will let me know its possible future. Yet another spreading of the trigpointing gospel!

A glider was winch-launched as I made my way to the pillar which can be seen from some distance. I met a very friendly gent who said access was not a problem as long as you do not stray on to the airfield. Leave the track and go through a small metal gate which leads to the pillar. The views were excellent on this warm sunny day although the distant Hope cement works did spoil it a bit. He informed me that the plaque on the pillar was to commemmorate the lives of two people who were killed when two gliders collided in 1999.

Friendly farmer showed me a path up alongside the farmhouse where I was met by an assortment of small but excitable dogs who escorted me to the not immediately visible trig point. The trig is relatively clear of the surrounding assortment of bits and pieces. I noticed that outside the opposite building, there was a cage of ferrets which the farmer said were owned by his son. No geese today but as others have noted, not a place to hang around. Off to Awsworth now for an even odder trig!

Eventually managed to speak to the owner who was quite happy for me to pay a visit. The "attachment" visible on previous visits now sits alongside the trig on the ground. The owner runs a demolition business and the recovered object was merely placed on top of the trig. Good views for about 75% of the area. The windmill now has only one sail arm instead of two and looks a bit sad.

Parked off Cheadle Road on Brookside and walked short distance up Cheadle Road to a stepped footpath on right hand side.Footpath leads close to a small group of trees wherein lies the trig.Views limited by the trees. Traces of white paint remain on trig. Note, if parking on Brookside, climb over fence by nearby telegraph pole and ascend, it cuts out the road walking as I found out on the descent!

Access was through several gates and very squelchy fields, boots were essential and wellies may have been the better option. One fence had to be climbed and the trig still has traces of white paint. Reasonable views on a lovely Autumn day. The trig is rather tucked away and was not readily visible.I originally enquired at Oaktree Farm and was rather curtly informed there was no trig point despite showing him the OS map.It appears that Quee Lane Farm have bought some of their land and the trig now sits on Quee Lane farm property.

Took the approach by Mick and Shane but drove up the bridle path to a locked gate. I think the quarry workings may have changed a bit since their visit.I took the SW path then climbed over a gate and walked through the quarry, it was a Saturday afternoon, and headed for the mast. After a few wrong approaches I got to the buildings and climbed a plastic coated fence which had convenient concrete posts for getting over. Across a field, over a sheep fence and to the Trig Point. It was visible on the approach to the buildings. There were two workmen on site but if they did see me, I was not challenged.

The Trig Point(flush bracket side) is covered by a fixed fencing panel. Very difficult to get a good photograph as the other 3 sides are covered by a hedge. We asked the owner of the house whose garden contains the trig point. If I ever revisit, I will go into the field for a photo.

The second one today after WinHill Pike.Quite cold up here today so the peat bogs were not too soft. Trig point is surrounded by peat. The later pictures were taken on August 5th 2018 on a baking hot day. Very different from 10 1/2 years ago. Still do not why they are coming out ninety degrees out.

This one was visited as part of a ranger led 3 trig challenge walk.Constructed in 1940, it is unusual in that it is not shown as a blue triangle on the os map. Although an OS built pillar, observations were never taken from it. This information was obtained from a handout,thanks to the Ranger. A highly reccommended walk if you see it advertised in the Peak District booklet. It certainly helps to have ranger leading the way! Grid reference and photos added on 02/08/14 whilst on our High Peak weekend with the East Staffs ramblers.

The second nearest to my home. Although not very high, extensive views and an informative plaque. The photographs were taken on New Years Eve 2012 after I walked from home. I have to agree about the lack of footpath signs, although the metal posts remain, the field was very muddy making it very difficult to follow the path in its early stages.I ended up walking round the field edges to avoid all the mud. The views are still good for a relatively low pillar. 8/10
