All intact. Good views. Had to cross a small footbridge with a concrete deck that was almost awash with the rain water of the last few days.

Cycled through Shifnal. Lifted bike over gate on Park Ln and cycled up farmers track until I came to gate guarded buy a heard of cows. They didn't mind me squeezing past them. The Trig is in a field by the side of the PF so I went straight up the hill, past loads of cow lick buckets to small fenced coppice. Rather windy up here! Cows didnt bother me on my way back. Saw farmer on Quad bike when I was back on the track. He didnt say anything.

A very steep but short climb up the hill to this one, limited views from where the trig is in the coppice.

2nd time I've visited the pillar on Lodge Hill. This time as a walk-by on a circular walk from Shifnal to Ryton and back along the line of the valley of the R.Worfe. Views to Shifnal and northwards were very good. Fields of green (cereals)and yellow (oil-seed rape) where planted up and red (Triassic bed rock to soils) where growth hadn't really started, made for a delightful vista. Outside the wood looking south & west the Clee Hills and Abberley Hills could be discerned. A superb walk too, along the Worfe valley.

What a fantastic view from the top of this little hill. I was surprised. The pillar is becoming swamped by a rhododendron. Shame that it is hidden away. Second pillar of the day. Cracking circular walk from Kemberton.

hiding away in a wee hill top enclosure and surviving a huge tree falling close by this little cherub hides part way in a bush. does mean he is sheltered from the worst of the weather though and as such is in vgc. I had parked down by the sewage works. the road becomes a track but i dared park my small car where the track forks just beyond the stw site. pretty much where the 3rd green dot is.. poor views today. weather.

Score is for walk, from Shifnal via Grindle Farm pillar on a crisp, white day, passing Evelith Mill (no King Charles!) and accompanying the delightful, babbling Wesley Brook, more than for the trig. I suppose I could have climbed the new looking barbed wire fence or climbed the chained and locked gate into the field of pregnant ewes separating me from the summit of Lodge Hill, but decided, for today at least, it was unreachable!

Parked in the narrow lane to the SW and followed the footpath over a footbridge, and up some steps. Go through a gate on the left and up to a small wood. Climb over what looks like a very new gate to access the pillar.I missed the gate on the left, followed the path and did a slight detour to avoid climbing over the barbed wire fence. Reasonabe views.

A walk along the public footpath from the road. which leads to Lodgehill Farm. Climb over a gate to access the correct side of the fence and stroll to the small copse of trees. Views limited to the SW but ok to the N round to the SE. Original paint peeling off.

Easy to see from the footpath - crossed over fence and soon at trig - felt a bit exposed so didn't stick around.

followed the footpath from the south west then a quick detour up the hill,hard work getting to the trig due to the snow on the hill making it very slippy underfoot.

Approached via the footpath from Shifnal to the NE. There is a convenient gate to climb over into the field adjacent to the pillar, which is behind another fence in a small copse. All intact with original plug - deeply indented letters. Quite a lot of fading paint on all faces. Sightholes closed. I assume there would be a good view from here on a clear day but today was very murky with drizzle in the air.

Great views of the area - but view of trig restricted and required zoom lens. We walked up the fp in the field next to the small wood.

The buzzing fence and polite farmers request on the entrance to the fp convinced me to settle for a close view rather than a full visit. nice walk though past the pond

Shame it was on private land so was unable to get right up close to it. Logging this as we did the cache just down the hill at the same time.

Visited this one on another Geocaching escapade. I had to bravely face the terrors of Torrential Rain! Flooded Paths! and Cows! The Pillar itself appears to be in good condition, though it no longer appears to be possible to get anywhere near it, there are two sets of fences between it and the public right-of-way. Lovely views from the hilltop, though. Shrimphead

Tucked away near a small wood. Attractive approach from the parking through a marshy valley. Wet miserable afternoon after a run in Telford.
