I had a different route to this but Mr U2 spotted a route through the hedge which was closer, this involved negotiating the barbed wire and brambles and then on the way back emerging from the hedge onto the main road a ground level head first!

Stormy downbursts = sneaky bags near Manchester, no wonder I've done so many this year. Up and down the road we drive then - stop there it is! I've done hill top trigs more quickly!

Not changed since the last visit by a trigger!
Most interesting photo I could get!

Second of two trigs of the day on the way to the airport. Found place to pull in W of the woodland on the N side of the road, found a gate to clamber over in to the field but couldn't find the trig. Advice: turn right instead of left once in the field over the gate and find the trig adjacent to the hedge. Clear some ivy off it if you have the time, this one looks like it may get lost in the vegetation. No views, but plenty of jet noise.

No parking by gate access to field - narrow busy road. I parked further to the SW where the road was a bit wider and my vehicle could be seen by other road users.

Just over the hedge from the road. I parked nearby, climbed the gate and walked along the hedge line watched by some very inquisitive cows. The cows made it more interesting than it would otherwise have been.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Private [?nearby Heald House Farm]. Difficult to spot from the busy road [speeding traffic - take care on the carriageway]. After crossing the field gate, look right along the hedge for the pillar. Only interesting thing about it is the odd, unexplained name - any ideas, anyone?

Damned awkward trig this one, both to park and to photo. Ended up parking on road by gate with hazards going and then found the face of the trig with the FB to be so close to the fence that I couldnt get a decent photo of it. Hohum.

On the way to Manchester Airport to pick up My youngest daughter. Managed to find a few minutes to log a trig on the way :o). No problem entered over the gate, it took longer to find somewhere safe to leave the car.
