Bagged again as part of completion of the first stages of the Staffordshire Way. Started at Seisden and walked to the southern end (Kinver Edge) via Enville for a fabulous lunch as noted in my last log of the pillar. Don't go to The Cat in Enville for lunch on a Monday - it's SHUT!!!! Pub of the year 2013 - 2016 - I don't think so. I'll calm down eventually.

Parked in the NT CP - fewer cars. Followed red trail up to ridge line. Toposcope one way, pillar the other. Fine views despite the haze. More resistant Bunter(Kidderminster)Pebble beds cap the underlying Bunter(mottled)sandstone which is dune bedded and softer - hence the Edge. The Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs were giving it some stick in the warm sunny weather. Lunch was taken in The Cat in Enville where the pub is better than those in Kinver. Enville Ale too.

Plug replaced, rear sighting hole open. Another one with TS=JD on the spider. The S prefix on the bracket somewhat misshapen. Good views albeit restricted by trees; Clee Hills from the 'other' side. A maze of footpaths competing to see which has the most signposts and way markers.

Have been here several times before, but never not so I remember the date. We parked in a National Trust car park below the edge to the East of the Northern end. We walked up onto the top and visited the toposcope there - great view. We then walked along the ridge to Vale's Rock where we dropped down to return along the paths at the foot of the ridge, passing Nanny's Rock on the way. A lovely walk. 164m Me, Mum, Jon, Hadley

The pillar appears to be a red colour and has a heavy concrete mix with large stones. The trig is easy to find - it is rightin the middle of the footpath. The top has been filled in with concrete. The walk from the car park was quite easy and we captured cache GCPZW9 on the way. Once at the topthere were some fields of rape clearly visible.

Pillar in good condition for such a popular spot. The graffiti artists have had a bit of a go at the north face. The plug has a concrete replacement and it looks as if the original tribracket has also been replaced. Quite a bit of erosion around the base, which is not surprising with all the walkers here. Lovely views eastwards towards Birmingham, Dudley, and Clent Hills. The views westwards will be obscured by silver birch trees in summer but only a few yards south of the pillar there is a gap in the trees and the views of Clee Hills are excellent! Only a few hundred yards away is the junction of the Staffordshire Way, Worcestershire Way and The North Worcestershire Path. Good spot!
