Parked at SO473679 and followed forest tracks all the way to the pillar. Have to hop the fence to view the FB. Malvern Hills visible in the distance .

What a nightmare to get to this one. Set off from Wyler through forestry tracks full of slushy mud clay followed by bracken and bramble bashing. The terrain up here was much worse than expected. Trig painted white eventually spotted in hedge. Great views

Walked up the Mortimer trail to Lodge Farm, asked for permission which was freely given, continued up to the pillar quite visable due to it's coat of paint. the couple at the farm paint the pillar every two years, and long may they do so.

A pleasant, if steep lane from Ashley Moor, almost to Lodge Farm. Then walked ROWs. White Pinted and visible across field as you ascend. Looked to be some enjoyable walking in the area, if I ever give up cycling. Done on way back home from stay at Kington YHA. 15 pillars ticked in six days.

Shocked to hear of the incursion of an alien culture here. I grew up in the area and the whole goml concept was simply unknown then. So far I have only been bothered on my own land, by a pig ignorant guest of a neighbour. I have clocked up 45 years of walking in the forest without bother. Happily I was not bothered on this occasion either, even though I did meet folk. Pillar is well cared for and freshly painted. I think I will visit more often now.

Parked on the roadside just beyond the footpath then made a circular along mortimers way then back though the woodland. Quite a nice circular walk. Trig on wrong side of the 2 strand barbed wire fence

Walked from Croft Castle car park via the fort and along the Mortimer Trail. Good view across to Titterstone Clee. There is a crack right the way around the top quarter of the pillar - filled in in places. See photos.

Nipped across the last field that had a Private sign after cycling up through the forest below. A bit chilly so didn't hang around but views varied and extensive

Edge of plantation; plug intact. Good views over Orleton. A long plod back through Wooferton to Ludlow but found five wall brackets along the old route of the A49.

I will have to take Father Ted's word for the views - today the whole area was shrouded in mist and I had a job to even see the pillar! I accessed it by parking just outside the gate of Lodge Farm after climbing up the track past the National Trust car park, then walking along the Mortimer Trail and from there along the connecting track to the National Trust woodland. All intact with the plug with indented letters. Superficial cracks all around the sides have obviously been repaired. There is a little white paint still showing. North sighthole open, the rest closed. On the edge of a very wet pasture field full of very-interested sheep.

Parked at the top of a narrow road at the entrance to Yelds Hill Wood and then took the forest track up the hill. The trig in just inside a field bordering to wood. Good views south of the surrounding countryside

Several visits over the years, but none recently. Not too far from Bircher Common, just outside the wood. Great view of Woofferton masts.
