Park in access entrance to school if not a school day. Walk down lane to PRoW access gate, across grassy playing field to stile, up a path adjacent to a bowling green then L up to summit of rocky knoll of Uriconian Volcanic rock and the Monument. Trig splendidly white and in good condition. Views stupendous especially to the West - Breidden Hills and Berwyn Hills. Noisy A518 below. You can bag the Lilleshall Monument Intersected station too.

Another Sven collaboration! If you park next to the school and head for the bloody big monument on the hill you won't go far wrong. (You can actually turn into the school and park without being on the premises). Excellent views all around, would recommend coming back on a sunny day to gain the full benefit, but even in the gloom it was excellent! Pillar in mint condition too :)

ALSO, on the platform around the base of the monument was another trig plate, from 1874!. It was round, bronze, 30cm diameter, and gave accurate Long/Lat, and was 443 and one quarter feet above mean sea level at Liverpool. That was declared as the Ordnance Survey standard datum. Long Lat was 2.24.12W and 52.44.13 and a half N.Marked as SJ 72907 15614. Public

Graffiti on TP. Interesting 1833 obelisk nearby. Background to the obelisk which commemorates the 1st Duke of Sutherland, George Grenville (d.1833) was a member of the Leveson-Gower family. In recent years the reputation of the Duke has been bought into question, in particular his connections with the slave trade, the poor working conditions of the mines he owned, and his involvement with the Highland Clearances. A letter to the local paper stated the people of Staffordshire should, 'Keep the monument, but don't hold the Duke in high regard.'

Strange to find something higher than the trig point, but what a lovely obelisk! Nice views as well on a clear day.

The hill is Lilleshall Hill. Quite prominant in a big plain. The obelisk is probably something to do with the infamous Duke of Sutherland. You may also encounter this unpleasant individual on Beinn Lunndaidh in Sutherland.
