Why take the path when you can come up through the forest through the brambles, over the rocks, through the streams wet through, cut up and with boots full of wet ferns. Doh.

A trig with a car park, a common to explore and a bench. Parked on Rural Lane to the E. Followed the waymarked "Easy route" W. If you stay on this route, the trig is eventually seen on your left (S) not long after a four way FP/BW sign. A popular dog walking spot, and just as I was excitedly approaching a couple emerged from the trees delaying my concrete appointment somewhat. Eventually alone with the trig inspection revealed a freshly white painted masterpiece, plastic cap. Slight red aerosol mark on FB. No views due to trees.

Hurah! Nice to visit a site where a pillar still exists. I was bringing my son back to college so managed to persuade him, my wife and dog that a stroll to this trig in cold blustery conditions was essential. I think they all enjoyed it.

Don't know how I managed to find this one but find it I did. Turns out I've driven past Loxley Common 3 days a week for 18 months without even realising it was there let alone that a trig pillar sits in the middle of it. Had a couple of hours to spare this afternoon so I thought that would give me enough time to bag this one before the next band of rain swept in. Should know better than that by now !! The multitude of paths in woods often means I'm never entirely sure which one on the map I'm actually on. Parked in the car park on Rural Ln then followed the obvious path West across the common, eventually coming to a signed 4-way junction of footpaths / bridleways. Gut instinct told me I was close so I ferretted about for a bit without success. Having lost total sense of where I was I then spent several minutes studying my map before deciding to continue heading west. The gods must have been smiling on me though because a few steps later and there it was - a brilliant white pillar straight infront of me !! Obviously cared for and in good condition with replacement plastic cap. Minor amount of graffiti and scorch mark at base on one face with partially burnt material around the pillar. No views to speak of but the threatening clouds, distant rumble of thunder and nearby Loxley Edge added interest. If you make it to the 4-way junction I mentioned above then take the (signed) bridleway WSW. About 250m on you will reach a wooden trail marker post. Turn left here and the pillar is over to your right a little further along this track.

Trig is easy to find on well marked paths. It stands out well, painted white, in Loxley Common which is full of local history....and dog walkers. Views were once more impressive as trees are returning the place to what it once was.

Lovely location and very accessible with car park close by. The management of the area is being reviewed and the first public drop in meeting was to take place at the trig point just 5 minutes after my visit. Ranger and City Council man on hand to do the business. The latter was cheery, the former seemed to want to be elsewhere.

Easy access and very visible. I parked on the Loxley to Worrall road in the parking area. Followed a good surfaced path which led directly to the pillar. No views to speak of surrounded by scrubland but still a pleasant recreatonal area. Nicely painted white with plastic plug. [Visited again on 09.09.09 whilst walking in the area with my walking group, The Irregulars, LDWA. Took some pictures this time. Think red paint and graffiti have been added since my last visit.]
