Parked in the handy lay-by then a gentle amble through the woods to the trig which had some white tulips sprouting from the top. A good place to view the sunset on what will be a frosty evening.

Logged 6 years ago on a very foggy day in December and I vowed to return. Walked on a round from Romsley on a fine day in early November. Fantastic views in all arcs in front of the trees. The Beech copse is the legacy of the Cadbury Family, apparently, from all those years ago.

Easy find at the edge of the woodland. Some sort of memorial going on here, think they might have enjoyed the odd smoke!

Be very careful here, if you come off footpath for just a few feet, there is an extremely nasty farmer that shouted at me and tried to run my dogs over for being the wrong side of a hedge, I was very scared and very upset by this in ident

Fairly easy walk through the beeches. Public footpath entry point clearly marked.Quite a lot of vegetation round the base, but the paint seems to be lasting.

Parked in the layby on opposite side of the beech copse. Short walk through the trees to the pillar on the south side. A re-vist on a clear day is a must.

Garth\'s white paint doesn\'t seem to have weathered off this one.

Fly-tipping continues to be a problem at the start of the footpath from the west, but the wood looked OK. The pillar looked as though it used to have other labels on it, now removed.

Reasonable views but grotty location,if you can get past the fly-tipped microwave,avoid the 2 scallies with an air pistol in the wood and step around the piles of discarded beer cans near the pillar then.... enjoy!{just read other logs seems i came at this the long way from the SW ...........also with a different opinion!}
