Approached from Rufford Inn and took track past Park Farm and along Hunter Lane, then Farm path to Trig. A Bush has started to grow next to it, and ground very muddy around it. Nobody around to ask so just went for it

Walked in from Sollom starting along Smith' s Lane then passing birch trees, woodland and bracken lined tracks towards Brow Farm where the trig was bagged in misty conditions before the single dog started to bark.

Parked on Smithy Lane, walked up to office for permission to go through to trig. In open field, nice far reaching flat views. Nice spot.

Success at 2nd visit. Several loud large dogs deterred anny progress last time. Their absent this time and a man working in farmyard was agreeable to my visiting. Sheds contain all white as well as normal peacocks and peahens. Pillar on very slight hill overlooking much arable land.

Decided to tip-toe through the farm yard to this one, but the shed of turkeys spotted me and made a lot of noise! Then took a lengthy detour around the edge of the field as it had been seeded

Turn down Smithy Lane. Watch out for the geese on the farm. A nice drop of winter sunshine reflecting off the trig on this early winter morning.
