Bridleway is now almost impassable due to nettles and vegetation. Walked up field edge to trig, buried in ferns.

Parked a couple of hundred metres south of the bridlepath on the A41 and took my life in my hands avoiding the busy speeding traffic. The bridlepath was heavily overgrown even in April and the pillar located on the edge of a newly ploughed field. Limited views.

Nice drive through the old airfield at Childs Ercall. Parked in the lane opposite the track which leads to the trigpoint. Just a short trot to the brow of the hill and it is on the left in the field. Still raining!

Very different picture now to the one jonglew took. Access via very very overgrown bridleway, easier from the field, even once on top of trig very hard to spot in the undergrowth. Ouchies in all directions.

the right of way path from the A41 a bit overgrown, so jumped into the field to the left, which was a good call as the pillar was this side of the path. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUb9EcxOaAo

Have been here before, to do the cache, but that was before my trig pointing days. Returned today, on my way back from geocaching near Hodnet. An easy trig to access, great view over the Wrekin.

Off to get a few local caches today so a chance to log some trigs as well. This one is just off to A41, access by an old green lane. Its in the hedge of a wheat field. The plug is original - deeply indented letters. Quite a bit of patchy white paint. Holes under hooks infilled. Sightholes below vegetation level. Good distant views S to Wrekin, Caer Caradoc and beyond.
