Very, lucky to find someone waiting to enter the park by the lodge @ SJ 442931. A second person arrived using the keypad to open the gates and we followed them in. Intended to find someone to ask but no one around near the big house. Spotted security guard parked up and he very kindly escorted me up to the trig (after a little begging). He said Lord and Lady Derby were willing to allow visits with permission but i have since heard this has been withdrawn due to too many requests. Estate Managers - Martin Harker and Edward Paddy (always helps to have a name) - good luck

Visited by kind permission of the Agent and thanks to the head of security for our escorted drive to the trig. E-mailed estates for access Nellie visiting relatives

Great to visit a trig that is usually out of bounds. And even better to be able to meet up with a fellow trigger - thanks Andy (asbown) for making the arrangements. Pillar located in nice setting in safari park. Plug with deeply indented lettering. BSM flush bracket.

Lancashire. Thanks to asbown for arranging the escorted visit to this pillar in the grounds of Knowsley Park. We did not encounter any wild animals. BSM style flush bracket and plug intact with deep indented lettering.

Many thanks to those who helped with information on how to gain access,very nice to have met some fellow triggers and share the odd story or two,it's not often you need to be escorted to a pillar but on this occasion our guide was very informative and more than happy to help in anyway possible.It will still be in Lancs long after I suspect some politician as once again reorganised local goverment but for the time being I needed this pillar as the u/a top of Knowsley,also had a look at a bus stop(Sefton u/a) and a water tower( Liverpool u/a) while I was in the area.

Not able to reach trigpoint. Did visit the safari park in the vague hope that we may be able to see it, but alas no. Pillar is actually within a private area of Knowsley Park and therefore inaccessible to the public.

Couldn't get to it. There may be a part of the safari drive that you may be able to see it in the distance. The best we could manage is about 1/2 mile away.

Not likely to get this one, guarded by lions! Visted, but warned off well short of the location. Very Private.

I was very privileged to be able to visit this Trigpoint as it is in the middle of the private part of Knowsley Park, not normally accessible to the public. It may just be visible from the Safari Park as I could see rhinos. It is the nearest to my home and I was able to find a friend with the necessary clearances to pay the visit.

The Pillar and The Stand The Stand is a three storey tower which was used by the Earls of Derby to watch horse races in their own park. It is now derelict having lost its domed roof many years ago.

A drive through the safari park is as close as I am likely to get
