From parking at N53° 08.731' W2° 02.939' along ROW to the trig, very easy walk and surprised to get to the trigpoint so quickly from the parking, excellent route choice from Gill who had visited before! Also spotted a benchmark on a 'boundary stone' on the way.

Even though it was a bit gloomy it was a pleasant stroll up from the road to the south, passing two cut marks on the way (one on a gatepost by the road, and one on a post part way up). Decent view point. Intact cap, one of the top edges is chipped.

Pull in for a few cars on minor road to SSW. Shortwalk on wet, muddy track to top. Pillar sits on an eroding base and one top edge is chipped. Original cap retained, lightly indented lettering; all sight holes open. No depressions in top surface for retaining loops. Light cloud down allowing glimpses of a fine panorama.

Wet after yesterdays thunderstorm. Trig in good condition, its slightly undermined on one side and the hoops are bent over..but all metalwork is present and all 4 sightholes are open.

Second of four trigs (first one was a revisit to The Roaches) solo walking and thoroughly enjoying the views. Met a couple of other trig hunters (from a national group) and we chatted about the fun bagging them. Great views, The Roaches, Leek, Wrekins, Malverns and Jodrell Bank. Perfect spot for lunch. On to Abbey Green trig.

Circular walk from Ruston Spencer via Gun, Hilly Field and The Common. Approached via lanes and farm track from Rushton Spencer. Gun itself is not at all imposing from this direction !! Typical Stafforshire fare this one - broad gritstone plateau and bog. Hazy views across to The Roaches, Hen Cloud and Tittesworth Reservoir. Other than that, the only thing going for this summit was the trig pillar and the tuneful skylarks. Would probably rate it higher had the views been clearer and the heather in flower. Pillar itself is somewhat undercut around the base and a little damage around the top edge.

Last pillar of eleven on a 24hr walk from Buxton to Congleton via Ilam. It was so bright this morning that through lack of sleep my eyes started absolutely streaming with water when I looked at the view to the east of the trig.

First time I have ever been up here, I chose a very clear day as I knew that once at the trig point it could get very wet and windy if the weather was bad. Totally opposite, the weather was so clear I could see for miles, just about past Beaston Castle/Peckforton Area, could see the Wrekin in Shropshire also.

Good Views. Muddy and windy. Logged whilst caching. Visible from road and parking spot. Parking can get busy at weekends. (Be aware of weekend drivers with 60k 4x4s :-P) Pillar in good order, slight damage.

Walked from nearby bend in road. Thick mist and wet white paint on trig. Found this out when I touched it with my red (now red and white) mitt. Really a Marilyn bag followed by the cloud.

A white painted trig with a poppy tied on one of the hooks which I guess is in some way related to the comments of fasgadh that there was a wreath here when he visited. Like Puppy Galore I too had a misty day with no views but still enjoyed my visit. It is a simple is little muddy walk up from the road. Looks like the trig was only painted white in the past month.

Grouse moor that features in the view from your belay perch atop the Roaches. A very easy marilyn,(with the shortest name) revisited for the photos (Thick clag last time) Pillar undermined by soil erosion around base, otherwise fine.Old wreath left by FB. Strange hooks, no wells under them. Recently there has been a fire along the road, not a controlled muirburn!
