OK so a difficult spot but intriguing, maybe some more sympathetic patching up of the monument would be good. Guided tour through the homelands before ending in Hanley, main thing of note the rather fine electric guitarist blocking off the view of Stanley's pedestal. Suppose one day that bus station will fall down of it's own volition...

A fun hill approached by FP from SW but could be so much more. The summit bearing a passing resemblance to an old WW1 trench site with the barbed wire and old concrete posts, while the Wedgwood memorial is a battered sorry looking edifice in need of some TLC, but what a great view over the Cheshire plain.

In field beside the prominent squat Wedgwood's Monument. Field to SE has an interesting hole from recent collapsed ground with a temporary Coal Board fence around it.

Approached from Deans lane (roadside verge parking) near the PROW. Muddy walk across the fields up to the monument. Inspection of the monument with trig log to follow. Interestingly according to records the monument has been reduced to a quarter of its original height. Great views all round. Plug removed and filled.

Good views across Cheshire, but then that's not a particularly inspiring view (says the Cheshireman!). Short walk from the quiet road to the south and then along grassy track. Memorial pillar makes for a great landmark as you are driving (or walking in).

4/5 - WOW. The views are great from up here. The weather was not great, so long range visibility difficult, but nevertheless, Jodrell Bank, Crewe, Stoke, the Chesire plain and Shropshire (?) hills were all visibile. Right next to the Wedgwood monument and near an underground reservoir

Wonderful situation on a mound just adjacent to the Wedgwood Monument and a small water-board complex. Approach on path off B5500. The plug is an ashphalt replacement. No paint. Superb views in all directions! It is a pity that this place isn't made more of an attraction - it would be great for picnics up here on a warm summer's day.
