Last of the day as it looks like rain. Lovely views up here but the trig is in a slight hollow as doesnt have any its self. The little castle (with sign about Cadburys donating Lickey Hill to Brum) has some great views to North. And i can see that rain coming in. So whizzed down the hill back where I had parked the car. Very wet on Motorway on way home.

I was in the area with friends hunting geocaches, and we took a short diversion to this trig. Easily found next to the path (which is more than I can say for the cache ) despite being nearly engulfed by a bush ! The pillar itself is in good condition, the spider is there but the central plug is missing. A lovely area to visit, great views nearby, so scored it as 7.

Spent many a weekend up here walking the dogs in my childhood and later whilst venturing into 'courting' as Nanny Parslow would call it. Really can't remember ever noticing the trigpoint which is odd as I must have walked past it at least 50 times.

You have a hugely prominent hill with extensive views so why site the pillar 20m lower in a pokey corner? There is an excellent toposcope on a viewing platform. Panoramic view over the Midlands.

Living as I do right by the Warley Reservoir trig [which is how I monitor the movements of the Water Board and grass mowers in order to get the fb number!] you can, with a pair of binoculars and a bit of imagination, see this trig from my bedroom window, so it was nice to be up here again to log it. Central plug missing and one of the three hooks on the top is damaged, otherwise in very good condition for such a popular spot. Today it was nearly dark and the views over Brum with all the lights coming on were really superb! From the summit of the hill, it's even better!
