Out of the snow and into a gloomy dank field - the watertower helps guide in the winding lanes on the edge of Leek and the Potteries - about time I picked up some home county trigs

Easy bag from lane. The trig was initially covered in vegetation. Once again, I'd forgotten the secateurs so did some gardening with my boots.

Parked at water tower and walked back along road. Trig is just a short distance from road along hedge line through gates.

Last of the day and easiest. Parked on school lane, just get a small vehicle in the gateway at the PROWS. On up the field. Note, FB on E face of pillar if you don't want to crawl under the fence like I did. All metal work intact. View, Water Tower!

There's a convenient gateway directly south to pull in to if driving. The trig is now wearing a bush, but it's easily found

The first of three trigpoints on a route taken from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. Walked up from Ladderedge Country Park. Easy access through the gate. Beautiful spring day with sun and blue sky but views limited by haze. Continued onto the The Common and Hilly Field.

In the area with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - so the opportunity for melch and myself to make a detour to this pillar was just too good not to miss. Easily accessible being just off footpath. Situated in eastern side of hedge - easy to spot now but once leaf growth is at its maximum will probably be more difficult to spot. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug. Nice views over this rural area.

Easily spotted lurking in a hedge. There is a double metal gate to use to gain access to the field but it is one of the muddiest points I have seen in ages. Access near water tower is easier over a fence (with barbed wire) and then walk across field. Lost a lens out of my glasses which didn't please me as I walked to this one. Views ok to the north east only.

Moments from the gate!

parked up at gate and was about to climb over when every cow in staffordshire started making their way down to met me, lost my bottle and returned to car and on to next trig, will assume the trig is still in good condition until someone with a bit more bottle than me says otherwise.
