A short detour to this one from a caching circuit. Well defined path up hill to fence, over that and pillar about 100 feet inside field. Pillar in good condition with good views to the south and east.

There's a well defined path heading straight up through the woods from the RoW, then you pop over the fence into the field. Good views.

Got access by going up Cotten's Ln and up Bridalpath. It was a great day and a really nice walk up there. Back down and to mom and dads for lunch.

Parked roadside in Ashton, a little N of the PO. RoW initially then into the woods before breaking out into a sheep pasture, for a fairly direct route to the trig. Pillar found in good condition on a low exposed plinth. Original cap in place, indented lettering; RHD side sight hole open. Good 360deg views - S to Cotswolds and W to Malverns.

Lovely views, even if we had just had even better views from the top! As we diverted off our route to the trig we were wondering what had caused the strange dip in the ground on one side of us - it almost looked as if someone had dug out a bit of the hillside to make a flat area of land.

It seems strange that this pillar is placed several hundred feet below the summit, but it still gives good views to the south and east. We stood here for ages as a huge herd of deer posed near the trig for 5 minutes and then another 10 minutes a little further down the hill.

My Penultimate Hereford and Worcester Log ,having just completed Shropshire a week or so ago was down tidying up some of the missing ones on the list.Short walk on ROW to the edge of wood,then about 200 m of woodland and you are there.Lovely views back over the fog that was hanging in the valleys and a large group of deer nearby.Nice spot.

I parked as Ashton and visited the trig on my way up Bredon Hill. A great sunny November day for walking. The trig seems to have a faint horizontal line around it half way up from where the concrete may have been poured in two lots.

Rather quick access compared to what it would have been had the trig point been on the actual top. Extensive views to east on a sunny afternoon. I really should have gone in the Star Inn afterwards.....

Here I am in my beloved south Worcestershire, today walking in one of my favourite places - Bredon Hill. The pillar is about 1/3 down from the summit on a pronounced terrace on the eastern flank of the hill. It's all intact with the original plug, with indented lettering. The east viewhole is open, the rest closed. The concrete base is some 4" above grass level, and there is quite a lot of erosion around the base indicating it is a meeting place for possibly people but more probably sheep! There is no white paint visible at all. It's in a sheep pasture about 300 yards off a bridleway and near a wood from which 3 buzzards 'mewed' lazily overhead and, on a wonderful day like today the E/SE views over the Cotswold scarp, Oxenton Hill, Dumbleton Hill and the Vale of Evesham stretched out before me. A green woodpecker 'laughed', the butterflies played around in the air - what a wonderful spot! Off down to Ashton-under-Hill now for a picnic and a pint of 'Old Hookey' in "The Star" inn. You could have died and gone to Heaven.........
