Roadside parking to SE of road junc, to W of trig. Woodland before breaking out into cattle pasture complete with a feisty herd that definitely needed an eye keeping on! Pillar sits atop a pleasant grass-covered rocky top with some great views. There is a severe fracture running across the front and RHS of the pillar, extending to the rear. Original top cap retained, raised lettering; all sight holes open. Good panoramic views, extensive to N.

There is a tea room at Lub Cloud Farm and the farmer very kindly gave his permission for us to cross his fields to the trig point. Tea room is closed on Tuesdays. No cows today and the trig pillar appears to be in the same condition as in previous posts.

Approached from NW; gate at top of road avoids a wall climb. Plug intact; all sighting holes open with centre mark visible. Faded graffiti on one face. Pity about the crack; hopefully the location discourages cattle from using it as a scratching post. Long views over Loughborough but a dull walk to the railway station.

Walked from High Cademan. Not only cows below the trigpoint but a bull as well, kept well clear on the way down. Very windy but great views, could see aircraft landing at EMA in the distance. Tried to get a photo showing Ratcliffe powers station behind the trigpoint. Couldn’t find a route on public footpaths back to High Cademan carpark so had to yomp along the roads.

Parked at cross roads. Not the easiest of access routes with scrambling through bracken,climbing stone walls, staring out some cows and enduring torrential showers. Fine view between the showers.

parking at the crossroads to the west, you can get up to the trig without going through the worst of the thistles by going a bit to the left after climbing gate, you still need to go over a wall and through a field of cows but the view is very good.

An awkward hike up to the top of a rocky tor from the crossroads to the west. Lovely view from here especially towards Beacon Hill - would have been better if it hadn't been so cloudy! As said, the pillar is on a rocky outcrop. No paint. N/S sightholes open. Original plug - slightly-indented letters.

Fairly easy to get to, and a wonderful view of Beacon hill and the surrounding countryside, including two wind turbines :) Trig is cracked around the base, about a third of the way up, but is in good nick otherwise.

View from Ives Head I forget what town that is a photo of, or even what direction i was facing when i took it, but it's the view from Ives Head on a clear-ish day
Cracked :( FB still there, however you can clearly see the large crack running through the pillar.

Unfortunately the early morning mist was hanging around so I didnt get much of a view. But with a summit ridge to rival the Aonach Egach and a fall off the end to compare with the In Pin this trig sits atop one of the Charnwoods many rocky outcrops (I bumped into a 200+ munroist at the summit). Spider intact but severe cracking around two faces. Park next to disused pumping station at top of Ives Head road and access is easy across two fields.

I can't believe this is not logged - it is clearly visible everytime as I pass on the M1. The trig sits gloriously atop a crown of rocks on the head just SW of junction 23. I will pull off and stop soon - it should have great views to the North.
