N52 20.968 W1 54.085 Parked to the west of the trig near a gate opposite the path , and hopped over a stile for a brisk 200m up what felt like a very steep little hill, with sheep snoozing in sheltered spots nearby. Nice views this sunny but blustery day from the trig, which is in good condition.

Visited here on the way to Hereford to see the Mappa Mundi. Parked on the road and had a somewhat confusing walk to the trig via a couple of unclear paths but got there without too much trouble. Good views from here.

Have to concur that parking on the west isn't a good idea, also worth noting that there is no right turn at the pub if you go immediately south from the M6.

It sounds like I approached this the same direction as fasgadh from the east where parking a car is easier than if approaching from the west. The countryside was looking great this week with lots of sunshine and greenery around. The trig now appears to have a railway sleeper as a partner. I wonder where she picked that up from.
