Walked up from the car park, and I actually arrived at the pillar quicker than I was expecting.

An easy bag. Park in the parking area and walk west. Eventually you find the the ground rising to your left. Follow vague paths up and you appear into a small clearing with the pillar just off centre. The pillar is on another outcrop of Charnian Pre-Cambrian igneous rocks which represent the highest parts of a landscape buried in much younger Triassic sedimentary rocks. This is my third of the Charnwood trigpoints. One to go, plus the Markfield pillar. Views are limited in summer as the birch trees have nearly obscured the view. Winter would provide a better opportunity to take in the views.

Found the nearby GeoCache then climbed up to the trigpoint. Another granite outcrop with lovely views N/W. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. Quite white-painted, even the flush bracket! W sighthole open, others closed. Quite a lot of graffiti, including a large red splodge on S face, but otherwise surprisingly unharmed! A lovely spot for a picnic!

A fairly spectacular location on a rock outcrop, barely visible from the lower level int eh woods. Local area fairly grotty with broken glass, but the vies and situation more than makes up for it.

Good condition, complete with all metalwork. Still a fair amount of white paint (especially on the Flush bracket). Also a neat N, E, S, W stencilled on the appropriate faces. However, some unsightly red paint daubed on pillar. Views excellent today.

Squeezing into the woods off one of the sideroads, the entrance isn't terribly visible. The woods are very pleasant to walk around at this time of year, although covered in ferns and twisting pathways. Approaching from the East requires a little bit of agility climbing up the rocks, the western approach looked easier, but i didn't go down there on account of spending too much time looking for my bike, which i left in the woods and then couldn't find again! The trig itself is intact and in good condition, except that the area seems to be a local drinking-venue for kids or something, and the poor thing is painted some odd colours and has a fair bit of graffiti and broken glass around it :(

View from one side of the trig The trigpoint atop its rocky seat. Unfortunately you can't really see much in any direction for all the trees in the way. You can see some of the white paint on the left of the trig, and a closer look (in real life) shows all the little signatures of the local kids :(
View from other side of trig The view from the other side, here you can see the unsightly red paint. Does red paint mean something, because i can't imagine why someone would want to lug a can of it up a hill, and pour it there :\ Again, you still can't really see much of the surrounding landscape

Many visits, especially when living nearby. A very good orienteering area, birch woods over the usual "granity" Charnwood outcrops. Almost the oldest rocks in England. The traditional Charnwood Gomls have forsaken this place, but sadly restored their foul attentions to the amazing High Sharpley nearby.
