No access to Robinson's brewery yard - Unicorn packaging plant - today. Viewed through fence from rear in industrial estate - appears to be in good condition in a small copse.

Drove to the end of Southside and viewed from behind the fence. Not the best of spots.

Set off from home in pleasant sunshine, but much colder than recently. Lanes to Ashbourne, then full length of Tissington Trail before rejoining tar to Buxton and Whaley Bridge for lunch. Stopped at Marple to look at map for 1st time and realised that this pillar was a possibility. Searched round industrial estate and found close view through Robinson's security fence from end of Southside.

Well todays visit was a speculative turn up at the security gates to find out how to get access and if it was possible on the spot as it was Wednesday working hours. No. As with Petronius Peregrinus he found you have to write in to the bosses in advance and they'll likely say yes an send a note down to the gate for permission. Interesting humorously that my Swype texting on the phone when I tried Swyping ' for permission', initially gave me 'got prison'. Haha

Just a quick look after my first visit today at Bredbury Parkway to view the building of a wet tidal anaerobic digestion plant. Work has started on a 5m plant that will see food waste turned into renewable gas. Green energy firm Bio Group has teamed-up with British Gas to create the facility, on the site of the former Ashton Road Landfill site, in Stockport.

With special thanks to Nicola for the escort, Tony the gateman for signing me in and Graeme Hall (Operations and Packaging Manager) for his kind permission to visit. If only a few more privately owned sites owners could be so obliging.

Private. Robinson's Brewery. On waste ground on Bredbury Industrial Estate, reached via Bredbury Park Way & South Side. Can be viewed & photographed from a few feet away, through the perimeter fence. Probably not worth the effort of seeking permission to get 'hands on'.

Thanks to Andy Bown for making the arrangements with Robinsons Brewery for this visit. We met up at the entrance to the packaging centre on Bredbury Park Way; signed in, were given id badges and high-vis jackets and then escorted to the pillar by a young lady who probably learned far more about trigs than she might reasonably have wanted to know 8-) Still, trig geeks must make a change of sorts from beer bores. Trig in the NE corner of the site on some waste ground; plug replaced otherwise vgc; FB facing away from the security fence. Surprised to see about 15 orchids growing next to the pillar - identified by Rob Woodall as Common Spotted Orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) - thanks!. Subject to prior arrangement (phone or email the head office in Stockport) Robinsons seem quite happy to allow further visits. Friday afternoon seems to be a good time as we happened to arrive just as the shift was finishing for the day.

Robinsons were more than happy to let us visit the trigpoint and I am sure future visits could be arranged without to many problems,Ted as described the trig,it's location and condition far better than I ever could and as he also had the sense to remember his camera and I had to use my mobile phone for my picture's I will not upload my photo's.

Southside is the road you need to find. Go down the end and into the carpark. Trig is behind the fence, shielded by a few small trees.

Saw this one on my TomTom as I was passing the area. Appears to be set deep in the heart of the Robinsons brewery depot and unreachable. You can get quite close to it though and photgraph it through the railings from the industrial estate. Appears to be in good condition, set in a small parcel of grass and bushes.

Likewise around the back but no luck on access at the front gate. Miserable industrial estate in any case

Visited by my colleague Pete. In an industrial area on private land. There, but they would not allow access. Pete can normally charm his way into to these places, but not this time! And I had no better luck a year later. You end up hanging around and risking being arrested as a potential bad guy fencing the joint!

Got to within a few metres, so can say that its in good shape. A quick dive into an industrial estate revealed its location as in the back yard of Robinson's Brewery. For that I can forgive it for being just out of reach with the number on the invisible facet. Extra marks for mmBEER!
