Large car park to SE on minor road. Worth walking out to toposcope first then the trig. Aesthetic stone-built pillar with a top corner stone missing and more slight damage lower down. Original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; RHD side sight hole open. Almost 360deg views, obscured NW by scrubby trees.

Easy,short stroll from the parking area, following the Cotswold Way. Interesting stone pillar. Fantastic views towards the Severn, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, May Hill, etc. I then retraced my steps but carried on to the toposcope, which at 748ft is higher than the trig. Beautiful sunny day, been on my to do list for some time. Now finally bagged!

Despite the moody sky and light drizzle a stunning view from the trig. Easy walk from roadside parking on minor road to E. Cotswold Way leads right up to the pillar on Haresfield Beacon. Stone cladding seems to be original but missing a few bits here and there. Two Cotswold Way roundels affixed to S face. Position logged from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

The stone built pillar stands on top of a round barrow inside a hillfort on a spur of the Cotswolds to the northwest of Stroud. The concrete base of the trig is exposed by up to six inches. A stone is missing from the southwest corner of the top of the pillar. It has a metal cap with deep lettering and has FB S5150 and a direction plaque for the Cotswold Way National Trail on its side. The site has a brilliant view to the south and west over the Vale of Berkeley and the River Severn to the Forest of Dean and the distant Welsh Mountains. The wooded slopes of the Cotswold edge meandered away into the distance to the south. A pretty combe lies to the east. Standing on top of the pillar I could see over the nearby trees over Gloucester to the cloud covered Malvern Hills in the north. The trig was visited as part of a circular walk from the NT car park, mostly on the Cotswold Way it also included the nearby topograph and Cliff, Halliday’s and Standish Woods. Surviving cut bench marks were encountered on the side of a building at Ringhill Farm and on a stone next to the path through Cliff Wood. Haresfield Beacon has been designated a SSSI for its geology.

A hazy day, but the views are great from here. Some **** in the car next to me had left an SLR camera on the back seat despite the police notice next to his car. Didn't notice the trig was damaged until I uploaded the photo. Not sure I like the NT cladding anyway.
