Left it late to bag this one but a night time navigation practice led me straight to it in the pitch black darkness Over the gate to south and followed the feild boundaries.Trig is in vgc with cap strange placement though not on highest point.

At least the field wasn't muddy, and it wasn't raining.

My first trig logged in Cheshire. They can but only improve after this one. At least it wasn't buried in the hedge. There is a good line of sight southwestwards to Hope Mountain, very likely a factor when the position of the pillar was decided.

Cheshire Maps and Mapmakers lecture, Dodleston, April 9th This poster on the village noticeboard in front of the church caught my eye.

Good condition. A maze of fences and very wet fields to cross to get there.

S3100 Unusual location. Not in fence line, or on actual highest point.

Parked by gates opposite footpath at SJ363606 and cut east across extremely wet field crossing fence by a large oak, then north east across an even wetter field (over the boot tops now), where gate provides access (when its not underwater) to field housing the trig. Not a great location.

Parked at the church. There were probably better ways to approach than the way I did. Pillar in open field and in good condition.

Parked opposite the footpath south of the village then worked way round field edges along well trodden path I suspect by locals with dogs. Trig just inside third field over a gate

I shared Slipper's view that a visit would be trespass and did not have time to seek permission.

Didn't fancy trespassing to get to this one, but pillar is visible from the road.

Pillar just visible to the right of tree.
