re-visit. A spur of the moment decision to call. There's a new road junction off the A51 Great Haywood bypass to the West for a housing development. Pillar is in a paddock occupied by ducks. Close to farm so etiquette to call and ask permission to visit. Visible from lane.

Walked up the lane from Great Hayward. Pillar shares a small paddock with a horse. Permission to visit readily given by friendly farmer even having caused quite a commotion by approaching the farm with a dog we were looking after for the week. We quickly learnt that farm dogs are even more territorial with regard to other dogs than people!

Eggs now 2.30. Friendly lady but watch out for the small dog. It had the bottom of my trousers. Friendly lady gave me a tour of the rear gardens from where there are good views up to Cannock Chase. The landscaping is recent but has been made to look old with stone walls, a stone bridge, a pond and even a ha-ha very impressive. Worth a visit just for the eggs.

Took the advice of previous logs and drove straight to the farm with my money ready for some eggs (2 per dozen - and they are lovely eggs). The nice farm lady seemed somewhat bemused but happy to let us visit the trig which was in an empty enclosure on the day of our visit. Nice spot. Lived in Great Haywood for most of the 80s and my teens, and never knew there was a trig point here.

On the way to the GeoCachers Christmas Lunch at nearby Hixon so called in to see the pillar. A snowy, frosty landscape had led the hens to be inside! Permission granted to view the pillar; plastic plug replacement. All sightholes closed.Quite a lot of white paint on flush bracket face, otherwise sparse. Pillar quite easily visible from road and binoculars will give you the FB number if you don't want to get authorisation.

In a paddock 30 yards from the roadside hedge. Easy to see from the roadside. FB plate is on the easterly face and can just about be seen from the roadside. Lots of expensive housing in this area so we didnt want to hang around too long....

As advised by previous logs I asked for permission at farm - granted with a smile. No hens in enclosure. The dozen eggs bought were magnificent. Remember to go into Little Hayward to access the road up to the farm.

Staffordshire. We did not have time to call at the house and did not fancy all the fences so missed out on seeing the flush bracket.

A relativly good mark for a nice experience. the area that was once a paddock is now home of free range hens. I knocked at the farmhouse, bought a dozen eggs and was given permission to go and visit the trig point - as long as I took care not to let the hens out. Thank you hens - your produce will sone become part of our Christmas cake!

Roadside, but a garden has expanded to take in the pillar. As usual the plate is the "wrong side". Unlike some of these new big gardens, this one has been made without destroying the trig pillar. This is a true roadside trig, but just out of reach.
