Nicely painted Gnome on the top. A bit muddy to get there as the first field was full of cows, but worth it for the views across to the Clee Hills.

Passing by on a geocaching mission, pillar is just a few yards into the field from the rutted RoW. Views OK, but gets extra marks for the decoration.

Took this trig in as part of a run. Parked at Glazeley Church and ran the footpath diagonally across the field, over the brook and pretty well straight into Chelmarsh. Ran along the main road for a short while then took the footpath which runs through the farmyard and right past the trig point. Lovely view of the Clees. Ran past the trig, turn left on the footpath which runs parallel to the road. The path come out on the road. Run over the bridge and back up the hill to the church. Very nice trigpoint run.

Parked on the grass verge by the church. The gnome is still master of all he surveys.

parked just of B4555 in front of the church and took the ROW across the field to the west of the farm ... followed the muddy farm track up to the first gate and from there the pillar can be seen on the horizon a couple of hundred meters into the next field ... the gnome obviously on holiday as he was nowhere to be seen!!!

Parked near the church, field a little muddy as it had been churned up by cows. Very surprised to see a gnome on top of the trig point, has to be a first for us.

Parked just outside Chelmarsh church. Walked down the main road and then turned left up the rough track of the bridle way. Over the stile and along to the trig without touching any electric fence or encountering cattle. The friendly gnome is still protecting the top of the trig keeping it in excellent condition. This trig is worth a visit for the gnome's sake! Views poor today but the wintry landscape provided a good photo opportunity.

Sunny day, great views of the Clee Hills. Pillar has no paint on it - and has been topped with a similarly unpainted gnome!

Approached from the Bridleway leaving the yellow road on a sharp bend to the NE of the trig. permanently open gate allows ample parking and no electric fences all the way to the trig.

In the centre of a pasture field with a herd of very docile fresians. However, a warning to future triggers - I parked by the church at Chelmarsh and used the path opposite; this necessitated climbing no fewer than five electric fences and one small field had a [fortunately equally-docile] bull in it. Better to use the bridleway from the village and then cut W on the other path - only one electric fence that way! The pillar is all intact with the original plug - deeply indented letters. No paint visible. W sighthole open, the others closed. Concrete base exposed about 3" all round. Lovely views W to Clee Hills and E towards Wolverhampton. Top surface appears to have been recently reskimmed.

We parked at the corner where the footpath goes off just up the hill from mAstbury Hall on a little yellow road. The trig is off the hedge line in the field which is a pleasant change. Pleasant views. Plug with indented lettering.
