Easy access from the N.Great views. Significant horizontal crack at base of FB and vertical cracks up sides - lightning strike?

Bagged after a short drive from Cordon Beacon. Parked in a "lay by" 10m past the track up to Bromlow Callow. Follow the track for a short distance then follow anything vaguely like a track uphill and parallel to the fence/wall on your R. At the gorsey part of the summit cross the fence/wall, skirt the gorse and follow uphill. the aerial will come into view before the pillar. I reckon it's a poorly made pillar from the start and the frost has had a good go at it. The cracks are all around the pillar. Slack construction! Revisited with The GreatScandini on a clear day. Superb

Damaged? -I'd say!! serious cracking both x and y axis and all 4 sides. a crying shame about the comms mast which sits smack bang in the line of sight to Corndon Hill. that and the huge security fenced shed the view is remarkable. far better than youd expect. a quick nip over from road by "high winds". the first 20m is a quagmire! to access the trig field continue beyond the gorse, theres a broken down section of fence.

Success at 2nd attempt of day - at 1st farmer warned of bull, cows and calves in field and advised unwise to enter; seemed prudent to take advice. this one easy to reach from road by new reservoir. As previously noted, very badly cracked horizontally and vertically. As good weather promised, away for two days prior to annual canal boat holiday.

Father Ted, maybe you are giving Jack Frost undue credit. Looks to me like it would have been a good wallop with a tractor. What's with the flags around the adjacent hill? - look nice, though.

Did the Geocache to the north, then scampered directly to the trig from there. A bit slippery on the hill with the snow on the ground. Didn't hang around for long.

Parked in gateway to east and scampered up and down before anyone caught me - unlikly was it was foggy and getting dark. Someone has given this trig a nasty thump by the looks of it or is it old Jack Frost up to his tricks.

The pillar was in an unoccupied gorse fringed field; it has FB S4723; a metal cap with shallow lettering and has some severe cracking near the base and flush bracket. I parked to the west. The field was reached over the wall from the corner of the access land of Bromlow Callow. Large view of numerous hills and ridges of South Shropshire and the Welsh Borders including the Long Mountain, Breidden Hills, Stiperstones, The Long Mynd and Corndon Hill. The clump of trees on Bromlow Callow was a drover’s landmark and the adjacent access land also offers good views.

Parked by the access to the water compound but with people aout I "got lost" having used the bridleway. Worthy of the damaged category. Still functionally intact but very significant cracks at base level and half way up on two sides

Only managed to get within 50m of the trig. The farmer appears to have erected a barbed wire fence alog the side we climbed altough there may be other routes!

Foggy morning, so no view. Pillar has all the metal work, but is cracked around the base and has several over cracks. There is missing concrete around the sighting hole below the fp. Soon one cow too many will rub against this one.
