Hazy day, easy access this time of year, nothing growing field harrowed flat, the dry weather helping

Parked at Clarke's Farm, mainly field boundaries to trig, which is in a scrubby area within an arable field - silage crop today. Pillar in good condition; original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; rear sight hole only open. Extensive views N, W & E; S obscured by tree line.

Cycled bridleway then walked left across two fields of stubble. Would have done earlier but for the closure of Slimbridge YHA: done on day loop from Stow YHA.

Parked on the verge by Madams End Farm then took bridleway. Field of stubble so easy to find trig. Lovely 360 degree views to the Forest, May Hill, Severn Plain, Malverns & Cotswolds. Took short cut back to car by walking straight through fields. Fifth trig of the day.

The pillar stands in an arable field on a small hill to the south west of Gloucester. The site was accessed by means of a bridleway from Clarkes Farm and then following field boundaries to the trig. The pillar has a metal cap with deep lettering and FB S5033. From the trig a large stretch of the Cotswold Edge can be seen to the east. The Malvern Hills are in the distance to the north. The wooded hills of the Forest of Dean are to the west.

We parked at Clarke's Farm and took the bridle path and then headed south to the west of the hedgeline. The wheat was still standing (they were harvesting in neighbouring fields) but I followed tramlines to the trig. Nice views for a relatively low trig. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Cycled all the way up from Clarke's Farm. Pleasant views of River Severn. Joined family for pub lunch at the Ship in Upper Framilode.
