Parked in the entrance to Forkhill Platation - (thanks to Slateloose for a note on the route) nice easy walk through the wood to the stile and easy stroll up the moor to the Trig. Excellent all round views and good visibility on the day. Trig looking good in reasonably new white coat of paint - always good to see. Admired the local stone sculpture also

My turn to lead a Staffs Moorlands walk, this one titled 'A Dip by the Pool'. I picked John up on the way through to Hulme End. I'd ventured out a bit earlier on the pretence on having a cuppa and bite to eat in the splendid Tea Junction at our start point. John had other ideas. An IT emergency that he needed some help with. A bit of a think and some luck on my part and a solution reached. The journey was uneventful and there were already a few familiar faces at start location and in the tea rooms, too. I'd reccied the walk the Sunday before and had to make alterations to the route to avoid a fair number of fields with cows and calves. I was also mindful of the weather forecast, now far improved from earlier in the week, but pretty definite that rain would be coming in around 3.30pm. 23 in attendance and I explained to the group that I hoped to be back at 3pm. So it was shirt sleeve order as we set off in the direction of the hamlet of Brund, crossing the River Manifold on our way there just by Buttsend! We passed through Brund, but if you're ever in the area to old corn mill is worth closer inspection, well a nosey as it's a private house now. Just north of Brund we took a quick break by the meandering Manifold, then onto Pool, where we struck westwards in the general direction of Reapsmoor, the highlight of this leg for me was seeing a benchmark on a building! Sad by true. The Butchers Arms was open so we took the opportunity to have lunch . The landlord, Carl, was, as always welcoming and suggested eating our sandwiches whilst having a drink in the pub. One of the four fires in the pub was alight, and Carl showed me a copy of the record of an inquisition (we'd call it an inquiry) held at the pub after the body of a man was found on the moors. The names of the jury were shown, many being local surnames. After our lunch stop it was up towards the trig point at Revidge. Fantastic views and the heather was in bloom. One of the local rangers, Andy, was by the trig testing 3 prospective volunteer rangers on navigation. We apologised for disturbing them but stayed to enjoy the views and scent of the heather. With the cloud thickening we set off back to our start point, off the moors via Clough Head, past Warslow Hall onto Cowlow and then picking up the Manifold Way for a short distance to the car park. Just short of the end there was a geocache, that Kirsteen found following my precision instructions! The timing of the walk was good as by the time a good portion of us had changed out of our boots and walked to the nearby Manifold Inn the rain had started. A good chat in the pub was lengthened by the intensity of the rain outside! There are lots of pictures on Staffordshire Moorland Walks facebook page, if you want a nosey.

Fifth trig of 7, long road walk from Bank Top trig along B5054 to Manifold railway visitors centre for lunch then to the trig via footpaths by Hayes Cottage farm which looked deserted. Trig easy to find up through tussocky grass making it a slog. Near to the trig is a stone 'sculpture' of a dragon (?) which I added to. Good views again! On to Hill House trig.

Increasingly grim day. 2nd week running I've made a visit to the Leek MoD Training area and Staffordshire Moorlands. This time to recce the area with colleagues. A pleasant area or moorland with a sparse conifer woodland close by. A return to spot in better conditions I think.

Out with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - and our route passed along the nearby footpath. So the opportunity to make the short detour was just too good not to miss. Quite a murky morning so pillar not spotted until almost tripping over it. In good condition. Original metal plug has been replaced by a tarmac type one.

I was looking forward to this, lots of sunshine forecast after so, so, very long in the rain and cloud. Parked at the Greyhound, so the afters look like they have been sorted. But heading north it was minutes before the path was lost. Repeat time and time again. This is a strange valley. Lots and lots of footpaths marked - so none very much used. An amazing number of buildings, in use and derelict, which left us non GPS people confused. And underfoot? Cattle riddled bog. No fun. Still once the ridge is achieved, at the north, things turned for the better. Pleasant top. Not THAT great. And the Greyhound of course. Worth the wait for that 5:00pm openning.

Despite this unfortunate trig being being located in Staffordshire, I need it to get all those on sheet 119. Drove up the lane from the north towards Hayes, about 200m after the tarmac runs out there is a good sized parking area. Followed track south for 500m until just before copse of trees, a track on the right heads round the moor edge past recently burnt gorse to the pillar.

Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. Approaching from north, on track from Cuckoostones, walk up to small wood & then take path up onto vast heathland. No need to wade into heather, as path then leads straight to prominent white pillar, where 2 more access paths also come in from other directions. Impressive spot.

Excellent views today. Visited towards the end of my walk from Warslow via the Manifold Valley, Grindon and Butterton. Access from road to the south SK078591 north on path to small wood near top of hill. Immediately beyond barrier turn left on path up through trees then through heather to trig. This is by far the easiest way.

5/5 for today on 15 mile circular. Dazzling white pillar surrounded by heather. Smoke grenade found by this one, a long way from the Training Area. If approaching from the south, path is very hard to find - take an acute left path off the main path (at SK07810 59707) shortly after stile and then watch for path to right heading to trig through the heather.
