should have a super view ...but the water tower blocks the clee hill aspect. shame. no issues getting to using field margins.. 3 deer spotted me before I spotted them. A large solar farm has sprung up nearby though cant be seen from the pillar.

Just as I got to the pillar, I heard the sound of a quad. (Great timing - 'oh shit!' I thought). The farmer rounded the concrete tank and looked very surprised to see me. I was taking photos and waved like I belonged there. He waved back and carried on rounding up the sheep. The weather was dreadful and perhaps he thought I must be too mad to bother with. I am thinking, there must be a great view of Wenlock Edge and Perhaps, the Wrekin from here? Not today. First snowy trig. Walked back to The Down via the JMW.

Weather haxy, through Meadowley, down the hillto foot path sign, [park in gateway] followed the farm track until the pillar came into view behind a concrete tank, then over the field tip toeing between the plants.

There are three pillars in the area yet to do, but after three days based at Clun YHA, and the previous days exertions, I decided on a fairly direct way home and just take in this one. Started on bridleway from Aston Eyre which became impassable in wood. Back tracked and walked up field to where a double wire fence gave access through hedge into next field. then gate and wheel tracks through barley field to pillar by small reservoir.

2 of 2 today - parked in the acton arms car park in morville and took the ROW past morville hall, across the stream and up thro the wood to aston hill ... had to cross a field 'off path' but kept to the tractor tracks thro the new crops to reach pillar beside the water tank ... as a footnote, it was a year today i bagged my first trig pillar while on holiday out on the western isles ben langass on north uist to be precise (TP1280). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHlEfp_wJXQ

A bit of a muddy trespass to get to it, albeit it's been raining plenty just recently. Little changed in the condition of the pillar in the last year or so since last logged visit.

Short detour up by edge of field then across to water tank. Trig getting overgrown; paint flaking; plug intact. Path down through the wood was congested - briars, bracken and sticky-cotton rosebay willowherb seeds everywhere.

Approached from Meadowly along the bridleway to the east and then was aided in my search by the fact that the field had been newly ploughed. The trig is OK; original plug with slightly-indented letters. Traces of paint around the top area and on top of the flanks. N sitehole open, others closed. Good allround agricultural views.

Footpaths and minor road make for a nice circular walk for a change. Finial states are off track but not too far. Trig condition unchanged.
