Parked in a gateway near the mast and had a quick dash to the trig. It's sat on a little rocky outcrop, and has suprisingly good views all round, especially of The Wrekin, which we had just done.

Quick sneaky trig. Did not park at the gate near the mast. It looked in regular use by the farmer so I chose to respect the no parking sign. Drove another 100 yards and parked on the same side, opposite the house. What a view of the Wrekin and Ercal, they have! Walked up the road and hopped over the gate. Walked around the back of the mast and on to the top to be met with a fabulous view. This is my favourite trig point to date. What a lovely place to come and sit. It sits on orange Wrekin-coloured rocky tump. Stunning in the setting sun.

Bit of a drive by. Climb over a gate at the far end of the field after the white house and head in a SW direction. The pillar is not on pink sandstone but some classic Uriconian rhyolite. Similar to that in the cutting on the new route of the A5 which did for a trig point in that position. Good view indeed to The Wrekin.

Friendly couple in the white house adjacent said it would be no problem with the landowner. Use gate just N of said white house. Lovely spot.

The gate was open and people were around waiting for the hunt to pass near the trig. People standing near the trig were suprised that we were there for the TP. We watched the hunt pass by, its the first one I have seen... (with SSMP)#453

A glorious spot, with views to the Wrekin, Wales and The Lawley/Long Mynd. On top of an outcrop of pink rock, as fasgadh says. Concrete plug replacement. Quite a lot of white paint, especially on S face. All sightholes open. Much lichen growing on it. No sheep today but gate into field open so access easy. A pity about the two adjacent mobile phone masts........

Celebrating England's World Cup Win Interesting one, on an outcrop of pink Uriconian rock. Pillar in good condition, but with a rough surface plastic plug. Not much in the way of a view as it was foggy.. On the way to traditional humiliation at Shrewsbury....
