No view - so here's the top Ancient tumuli next to the trig is the hill top

Parked at start of track SE of pillar and walked up. It looks like the farmer is about to reinforce the fence here as there were new fence posts and rolls of wire nearby. Panoramic view.

Walked across from Soles hill for this one. To add a little mileage took a route via Musden Wood into Rushley and then a climb up via the old derelict farm at Upper Musden (suspect this is on somebody's renovation list) Easy walk up to the pillar. Good views especially back to Soles Hill. Return journey back via Carlton and the bike trail to the Car park at Weags Br.

Parked on Green lane and followed the green dot route northeast across three fields to shoulder of hill then followed wall line south east to trig on top of hill. The trig point is over the wall on the east side and guarded by the biggest bull I have ever scene.

Parked beside St Mary's memorial hall in Calton then headed SE along Back Lane to the crossroad with Green Lane. Continued SE along Green Lane to the PROW that passes behind Green House Farm. Emerging onto Dog Lane I took the PROW SE across fields and then NE around the western flank of Musden Low. After crossing the second stone wall I then used this as cover whilst making my way up to the top. Trig can then be accessed by climbing just the one wall. Trig in good condition but original cap has been replaced with plastic disc. Great views over Ilam. Sat and had my lunch whilst a herd of cows crept up on me from the other side of the hill so I beat a hasty retreat back over the wall and down to the PROW leading to the now derelict Upper Musden Farm. Here I turned N towards Rushley eventually intersecting with another PROW leading down the hill and across the River Manifold into Ilam Country Park. Clockwise circuit of the park then headed N along the Manifold Way to Rushley. Finally returned to Calton along the dry valley of Musden Wood.

What a pretty place Ilam is. Magnificent parkland leading me astray from my intended river crossing, but made me feel all Downton, so that's alright. Then minor disaster. Keeping my eye on the bull in the field I went a little astray and had to navigate around Musden Grange - THE SMELLIEST PLACE IN BRITAIN. (Sorry. Got carried away there.) Once back on track it's some fine views back over Ilam and its sheltering Hill. Be careful of the dead end at Upper Musden. Ilam. Fine place - apart from ....!

Joint visit with Carole. We parked on Green Lane to the south-west and used a track in the direction of the pillar initially then headed off to it. Only one wall/fence to negotiate on nearing the pillar. In good condition although the original metal plug has been replaced by a plastic one sometime in the past. Nice vantage point.

Despite this unfortunate trig being being located in Staffordshire, I need it to get all those on sheet 119. Approached from south west but ended up climbing 2 walls with barb wire as we failed to find gates. Good views over Ilam area.

Visited on a loop from Alstonefield, visiting some 100m drop summits. Walked over from Wetton Low. Pillar in good shape, plastic plug replacement.It was somewhat unusual in that the top was flat,no indentations under the anchor points. On to Dovedale.
