Near enough for a pleasant Sunday morning stroll straight out of Wilderhope, after having made the most out of the extra hour in bed.

From the end of the minor road to N where there is good parking on grass verge. Nice wide grassy field margin along ridge. Good if hazy views, Clee Hill in cloud. Together with a wet and muddy Collie dog.

Parked at YHA and walked up the track in the Dale. Past pilgrims cottage and straight up the slope to the top. Trig along field edge to pillar. Met Carol from Huddersfield who was just completing the last of her Shropshire trigpoints. Nice to bump into my first fellow TP bagger. Also nice to have my wife along for a change.

Arrived YHA Wilderhope Manor a bit early so up here to bag the trig and associated Fegg Hill tump. Pleasant walk up from a stunning YHA - Elizabethan Grade I listed NT property, not the warmest hostel we've been in but at 22 for a private room for the night def not complaining. Pillar, replacement for Larden Grange, in good condition; FB facing into wire fence - fair bit of thorn and other vegetation needed clearing to access it. Original cap in place, indented lettering; 1 sight hole open; vestiges of white paint job evident. Almost 360deg views, slightly restricted NE by Moggforest.

Set off from Brockton to include the nearby Hill Fort. Was a clear day and good views were to be had of Abdon Burf (Brown Clee), Titterstone Clee, and The Wrekin.

East facing face. There's nothing quite like a nice cup of coffee after a bagging :-)

Had been staying at Wilderhope YHA. Cycled bridleway/track out then walked up path through woods. Must be the earliest arrival at a pillar after setting out!

Plug intact. Pillar on field side of fence but FB facing into woodland. Views of The Wrekin, Brown Clee and upper Corvedale. Noisy sheep. No sign of the foundations of the original pillar - assume it was slightly further into the field where it might have been an obstruction to agricultural equipment.

While on my Stag doo we went upto this Trig in the middle of the night after a session at the curry house and pub in Church Stretton. We were staying at the nearby YHA hostel called Wilderhope Manor.

According to the 1994 OS list this is Mogg Forest. Probably a rebuild of Larden Grange, hence the 5 figure number. We parked near Pilgrim Cottage and headed straight up from there. Plug with indented lettering.

A new low number. The view is limited now to the north by woodland, but very fine down into Corvedale. Path up through woods (crazy name, Mogg Forest - no cats or calves though) from the north was very muddy and slippery. Many pheasants. Pillar in good condition and intact. Possibly 11444 - replaced old pillar S1994 which was nearby.
