Highly enjoyable woodland walk along the full length of the hill following the Worcestershire Way from Shavers End. Nicely maintained pillar but views not all they perhaps could have been.

The trig stands on the summit of a wooded ridge between Droitwich and Tenbury Wells. The site was reached by walking up from the village of Great Witley and along the crest of the ridge to the trig. Bluebells, wild garlic, birdsong and several slabs of concrete and iron shackles were encountered on the way. The pillar is painted white, its spider is plugged, it has FB 3870 and an adoption plaque is attached to its side. The view from the trig is restricted by the woodland but nearby there is a pleasant vista over the prominent clock tower of Abberley School across a rolling landscape of farmland and wooded hills to a distant hazy ridge.

Bagged on the Great Whitley circuit. Proper Worcestershire mud developed on these folded outcrops of Silurian rocks. Superb views through gaps in the trees on this lovely crisp, sunny February day. Not often you'll walk in Snowdrops, Crocuses, Daffs and Lesser Celendines. Pillar has been adopted by the Bournville Walking Club. I'm surprised they didn't paint it dark chocolate brown.

Did this one whilst out Geocaching with HKMHill doing the Ab Fabberley series. It had just started drizzling and raining, so views weren't too great today. Views however are only to one side with trees to the other side. Elevation 295 meters.

Our 9th and penultimate Worcs trig for the day. Easy access along short, steep path up from the minor road off A443. Adopted 1994 by Bournville Walking Club - it has their plaque on rear of pillar (quick google doesn't throw up who they are or where based). Pillar is in excellent condition with coat of protective off-white paint (that will need touching up soon); cap missing, plug of unknown material recessed into the hole, not flush with top of spider as usual; 1 sight hole open; plinth exposed on 2 sides where it abutts FP. Lovely views SW down the valley to Abberley Lodge, School, Great Whitley and beyond.

I haven't been here for about 6 years, so it was good to see the trig in such good condition - Bournville Ramblers are doing a good job! The central plug is missing, however, as has been replaced by a cement bung. The tower mentioned in one of the logs belongs to Abberley Private Boarding School, which is just at the bottom of the hill. Logged this trig on the way to getting nearby Geocache. Super day! Views are better at this time of year when there are no leaves on the trees.

Fast growing sycamores have blocked the views. Was briefly a marilyn on account of a railway cutting. Then it was filled in. Still worth a visit, especially if you bag Clems.Nearby clocktower is a well known landmark.

Aah such memories of an extraordinary day.
