Had to grab my nearest YOSM before GC effectively kill it off. Great condition but had to step through long grass to get to it, but clearly in the path of others before me.

Bagged this one whilst passing by on a geocaching mission. Pillar is in a hay meadow, pubic RoW passes diagonally through the meadow. Farmers here zealous of their rights and accost people who stray from the path, but no-one about when I visited.

Nice easy find, which I approached from the south-west. I didn't see anyone - with or without a shotgun.

Parked at the road junction near Church Farm and took the footpath north toward Hunger Hill. Rigged for silent running and sticking to within 6 inches or so of the footpath so as to deter any hostile action or friendly fire . Job done.

Also YSM116 Hunger Hill Parked on corner at N52 45.803' W1 51.479' and headed up farm track, I'd been studying logs on TP:UK and noticed one with a notice regarding a rather unfriendly farmer who had accosted someone about their location in relation to the footpath. I wondered if this was the trigpoint as I wondered up the farm track in search of the path through the field. I then spotted the style but it was the other side of the fence and I could hear what I thought was a tractor in the trig field. Quickly crossing the fence and getting over the style, I stuck very carefully to the track and listened for the tractor which sounded as if it was going away from me. No such luck, it started heading straight for me and was in fact a golf buggy with two men in, one armed with a shotgun! Feeling sure I was not trespassing as I was on the footpath I continued. They approached me and the man with the shotgun said "Are you ok" "Yes" I said "What are you doing?" he said "Walking" I said "Trespassing" he said "I'm on the footpath" I said "You are not" he said "Where is the footpath then?" I said "1 foot to your right, it runs diagonally across the field" he said. I moved 1 foot and they drove away......luckily his version of the footpath directly passed the trigpoint. Very scary!

Trespassing - oh no I wasn't! ©thejackrustles

parked on bend in lane (52.763723, 1.86074) and walked about 150m back along the lane to the west and took farmers track up to the left from another bend in the lane. follow the track up the hill and go into the field on your right when you reach the end. follow the hedgerow on up the hill and the pillar will come into view. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7w_KgmHFcg

Strangely, my 1980s OS 1:50000 map didn't have the access track from the SW marked on it, so access was much easier than first expected.

Part of a walk taking in Hunger Hill and Hilltop. Parked just north of High Bridge this has a benchmark cut on the north pillar. Walked on to Longdon through Armitage along The Way for the Millenium. Would have been good views but for distant mist.

Walked up lane from south. Very muddy after recent rains as are the lanes around here in Ridware land. Car looks similar to the Reddleman's cart with the red soil wash of this part of Staffs. Superb views to the south and southeast. Transmission masts at Hopwas and Mere Green visible as was Whittington Church steeple. Cannock Chase to the west and the ever present Rugeley Power Station through the hedgerow.

An easy-access pillar in a field of Italian rye grass, just off a public footpath. Original plug with slightly indented letters. N sighthole open, others closed. Traces of paint. Lovely views to S and slightly less so to the N. E/W views obscured by trees.

For this one I parked in an un-gated (and not recently used) field entrance adjacent to the start of the track, south-west of the pillar. An easy walk up the track to the recently mown field where the pillar is located. This one could definitely do with a lick of paint. Its in good condition, albeit a might grubby, with all its metal work in place. The centre plug is of the shallow indented sort. The view to the south is probably the best with trees and hedgerows obscuring the other directions.

Approached using the footpath from the west. Parked in the lane just south of house. The first field I crossed had been ploughed and the path obliterated but a nice dry evening meant it was still not too bad to cross. The field containing the trig is partly scrub with a narrow strip near the trig ploughed and raked.
