re-visit. footpath through garden centre. Lots of potted trees and bushes. The stile out crosses a new mesh and barbed wire fence, but the footstep was a dodgy old bit of wood which collapsed as I stood on it. A painful contact with now exposed screw and later my achilles tendon was a bit sore. A quick excursion off left of footpath to trig in hedge before the young heifers in the field gathered to view me.

Repeat log. Lockdown walk - passing - on way to my local bluebell wood. Top of pillar adorned with old ironwork. Lovely morning.

Path starts just to left of garden centre, this soon becomes a mass of brambles and nettles, not good when wearing lycra cycling shorts. I got 100% lost in National Forest (all tracks look the same and I had forgotten my compass) so I had to abandon covered in scratches and stings. Mid-summer is probably not the best time to attempt this.

Just passing my nearest pillar. Looks different now - the field has been fenced and is full of sheep and lambs. Easy access through new unlocked gate on footpath.

There was an electric fence up, and so I decided to just take my photo from the other side of the fence.

Last of three trigs walking with two mates. Awkward to find public FP through nursery centre, but it is there. Trig spotted quite easily in the hedge, though some ivy had to be ripped away to slow down its coverage. Some views N. Walk back to Walton on Trent meant crossing fields, one with bull and his three cows loping towards us.

2/3 walked across from Cotton Park TP making use of PROWs where possible, numerous sightings of buzzard's and some wonderful flowering meadows just to the East of Rosliston made it a lovely walk. Just managed to navigate our way through the Garden Centre and on through the back area. to turn where the larger piles of horse muck are sat. Trig slowly becoming consumed by the hedge, all metal work intact. pruned back a small area above the top of the trig to grab a GPS reading - should of asked for some equipment at the GC. Location, very uninteresting. Returned via the same route heading back into the village for continuation of mission to next TP - Borough Fields.

Path up to and thru' garden centre not obvious, so just start from garden centre itself, making for northern boundary where FP is then signed.

Parked at the garden centre - with an intention to buy some fertiliser. Walk through the CP to the open boundary to west side turn R along PRoW and follow track to stile. Over stile to field boundary, follow to first boundary hedge west. Pillar is on south side almost inside the hedge. Good views to Cannock Chase and TV masts at Hopwas & Four Oaks. Tea room provides good tea and soft drinks and snacks. A plantsman's nursery. They recommend "One" for an all round fertiliser.

Parked at garden centre & thus avoided 2 cost for parking at forestry centre. Followed right hand hedge through garden centre, hopped through gap in hedge and followed edge of field to now visible trig. Farmer has done well to miss the top whilst hedge cutting.

Got confused by the footpath and went astray somewhere in the garden centre. Once into the field beyond, the trig was easy. Plug intact. Hazy views.

Got permission to visit this one - as we were taking the PF through the garden centre, after closing hours, a guard dog bounded towards us. Well, either a guard dog or a pet, because it was soon followed by its owner who was on the back of a mower. He yelled to us "Ohh he's soft!" and he was, so we yelled back "We just want to go to the trig point" and he said "You're welcome just hop on over". Nice easy find, look out for the cache!
