Well this is indeed a very long mountain. I'm glad then that I was just walking it from Church Stretton to YHA Bridges. Here a day early for the Trigger's Gathering in Clun. Doing a little bit of overtime :). I imagine it's a pretty rare thing that an individual pillar receives the attention of TP:UK users on five consecutive days.

Lovely walk up from Little Stretton through Ashes Hollow to Boiling Well. Not sure whether I like the manufactured track over the summit but there is the road nearby already and it was nice to see a mobility scooter making use of a rare opportunity to summit. Picked out the neighbouring hills in the grey using the toposcope and then made our way down by Grindle and Small Batch.

Easy access along the tracks on top of the Long Mynd. Its a lovely place to sit in the sun - on a clear day you can see for miles in all directions. Base somewhat eroded. Theres a small chunk knocked out of the NE corner

Trig point suffering from some erosion, I think it falls into "slightly damaged" rather than "good". Easy to get to on foot after a somewhat hairy drive up the hill. Lovely views and an interesting toposcope too. The picnic-ers were out in force, together with an elderly pair who must have been about 90 years old. Well impressed, I was. Hope I can do that when I'm that age.

Long planned to come into this area and now plan to return to climb Caer caradoc. As it was a quiet weekday I abandoned the car at the point the path leaves the road in a large bpassing place (not a weekend spot) simple walk to stretch the slightly achy muscles. Views improving but still very hazy. Not sure how warranted slightly damaged is

Plug missing; three sighting holes open; some slight damage to top of the pillar. Views to the Stiperstones and Clee Hills; very windy. The path through Ashes Hollow is recommended! Revisited 25 March 2005 - good views today. Revisited 25 August 2007 - no change in condition but the nearby surface block is on a tilt.
