Skylarks singing below the swaggering clouds, heavy rain most of the day so this is a brief bag, hope we stop building huge destructive warehouse sheds one day...another of those fine pillars where you feel the OS were having a break from clever awkward siting.

It seems a strange place for a trig point to me as 30 feet away it is difficult to see.... I thought the whole idea of trig points was that they can be seen from miles away!

Grass been cut around trig so stands out very well. Seems an odd place to have one, due to it being very flat around the area. View was nice as could see across the fields and see the equestrian centre giving a class.

On the way back from L'Pool airport, with Head Office (the wife) dropping off my son returning to Spain. Trig is easy to find on left side of road to Burtonwood. The road is fast and busy, there are a couple of places to pull in but watch out for traffic. It was clear when I got there and could see for miles though HO said it was a daft place for a trig as it was so flat...

My Cheshire bagging debut! Working in Liverpool and had found that this one was near the services at Burtonwood, so a quick and dirty job. I can only echo earlier comments that this road is very busy with no pavement and not even a verge in some places so do take care. However, the trig is easy to see and access apart from the traffic. Nothing to inspire for me here, distant view of the West Pennine Moors and not much else. Still a new county and I am sure Cheshire has more to offer when I have more time.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Public - on grass verge between road & open field. Not an impressive location. The road is very busy & those walking on it should take extreme care. Half-decent walk over from Earlestown - highlight is the disused Sankey Canal, England's oldest [1757, so a good few years before the Bridgewater].
