Walked up from Gothersley Lane, signs about as welcoming as the flies, but no real problems.

Walked from Enville Common Lane through woodland which has lots of private signs. But the wood has well walked path in all directions. Managed to access edge of wood near private bridle track and walk towards the trig point with just one small fence to cross. On the way back was followed by a small wippet / greyhound and half expected to meet its owner but didn't.

Drove up track to Gothersley farm and beyond. Track is potholed! Parked just passed track fork. Walked up the bridleway to notable gas pipe marker post. Take track to left through wooden gate and follow rough track with many horse hoof prints up to crest then along to elbow in wood line. A new plantation has been planted inside the elbow. Pass with side of plantation, if to R you'll see another gas pipe marker post. strike up left and the trig is in hedge line protected by blood thirsty brambles. Good views to Turner's Hill and conurbation.

Gothersley Lane very busy. Gothersley Farm one mass of horse paddocks. I parked off road @ SO 860868 and followed BW and then track (used as a BW) south along edge of wood. Relieved that track went all the way to the trig without me having to negotiate an electric fence

Cycled up good road to farm/stables and sought out the owner. A pleasant gentlemen who directed me where to go. Rough access track to West and barn, then North across paddocks and West again. View changed considerably from photos due to more recent tree planting from original tree line up to pillar. All the surrounding fields are divided into paddocks - there must be hundreds of horses! I think this is my last pillar in Staffordshire.

Approched from the west through the Millon,very muddy path up to the pillar. On the way down I hopped over the fence into the trees and used the good track which passes the comms. mast

parked on the track to the north near Gothersley hall and on the instructions of a very nice lady horse riding followed track into woods and turned left onto very muddy track at the 1st pipeline warning post, this track takes you straight upto the trig without having to worry about fences, good views.

Just recording my abandoned attempt at reaching it. Workmen in Million Wood, with various do not enter signs. Looked longingley down the track at 848866. Had to be content at watching the horses in nearby stables.

Pleasant cycle across the Million, up to the top of the hill and easy access along path from north, which was marked on my map.

Easier acces route than previously reported. I walked through "The Million" wood on the footpath from Chester Road, then turned right onto the private bridleway.

I sought and was given permission to visit the trig after going to the office at the farm. The farmyard was heaving with horse owners tending their pets. Accessed by going south down the farm track then west near the barn with the caravans outside then south along the wood boundary. Like previous visitors, I ended up in a paddock at one stage by mistake but backtracked because of the electic fences.

A hard pillar to access - ask for permission at Gothersley Farm. Then, follow the track SW from the farm to the small copse where a path climbs to the pillar. DON'T go across the horse paddocks [like I did] or you may get zapped by the electric fences [like I did..]! The pillar is very white and has obviously been recently painted. Plug is original with very indented lettering. All sight holes closed. It's on a knoll with good eastward views towards the Black Country conurbation. Other views restricted by trees.
