The A5 is not too busy so easy to cycle along it. Trig has moved down the drive and has 5MPH sign on it. Interesting use. Haven't seen one like this before. Not bad views. Wind is getting up and I was blown back up the drive to the A5.

At first, I could not find it but it was squeezed between two vans. Probably the least picturesque trig point to date. Glad it is still surviving, at least. I wonder how long before it is knocked over here too!

Tight squeeze Trig hidden between two vans. All have seen better days.

Drove up the track and there it was near a static caravan. Quickly jumped out of car, got photos and drove off. Probably was okay to visit as trig was so visible but didn't want to hang around.

The point had actually been moved when we got there; we drove down what must have been the farmers path/drive and found it standing next to a caravan (at least it was visible!). Bagged as I turned the car around!

Being in the area and having read of its reported loss I decided to re-visit. A new steel I-beam has been put in place to hang the gate and tapes splay out to the A5 hedges one passing over the former site. Possibly they are going to widen the narrow entrance. The pillar foundation appears to be still in place and two layers of bricks have been used to fill up to ground level. Lack of new vegetation suggests this is recent. I went down the drive with the intention of enquiring about the pillar, but found it sat upright and intact by this drive just before the buildings and adjacent to a mobile home. There is a shallow inwardly sloping base below the former ground level of the pillar.

If the TP has been damaged but its primary function has not been affected, such as when it has been touched by a hedge trimmer, then it should be recorded as SLIGHTLY DAMAGED. If the damage affects the TP's primary function (being a permanent base for a theodolite), such as when there is a permanent lean, then it should be recorded as DAMAGED.

Much care needed on the main road. On a few strides off the road, and it is before the gate, so hardly 'private'

I only realised yesterday this was so close to work, so I rushed out at lunchtime. On private land so I didn't hang about for too long. A definite list to starboard, otherwise OK.

Easy access, but private, as others noted its leaning possibly hit by a vehicle? Unexpected viewpoint, as have passed this many times on the M54, can't really remember using the A5.

A very white-painted pillar at the entrance to a farm road by the side of the A5. Original plug with slightly indented letters. E sighthole open, others closed. The pillar is leaning slightly but otherwise sound. Excellent views W over Telford and Wrekin, N over Cheshire Plain, E to Cannock Chase. You can even see the plumes of steam from the Ironbridge Power Station, if you're in to that sort of thing..
