Bagged as YSM665 Robinswood Hill. We had planned to do this last night in the dark but both being tired teds meant we got lost in the housing estate near the ski centre. I am sure Mr U2 will complain that it was all my fault as I was navigating to the wrong hill with a different trigpoint on it, I'm saying nothing until I've seen my brief! So glad we've didn't do it as it was a killer on the legs and had a great view at the beacon which we would have missed out on. Much quicker on the way down.

Parked at a small car park to the SW of the summit and walked up steep muddy and quite slippery paths. Found not only a trig at the top but a direction finder and a beacon - a bargain! Route down was via the top of the dry ski slope and then paths round the SE quadrant of the hill. Pillar is in good condition with a definite greenish hue to it as noted by others - perhaps it had a coat of green paint in the past? Good views here across Gloucester and its surrounds.

The pillar stands on the grassy summit of a wooded hill in the south of Gloucester. The trig, including the FB S5026, is coated by the remnants of a coat of green paint; its base is exposed by up to five inches. The top of the pillar is a bit battered and the spider has an asphalt plug. The site is within the Robinswood Country Park and Local Nature Reserve. There is easy access by means of the web of tracks and paths on the western side of the hill. The pillar shares the summit with a Jubilee Beacon, a geological information board and the base of a stone built topograph without its top information plate. To the east a long line of the main Cotswold Edge can be seen from the far south up to Cheltenham and Bredon Hill in the north east. There is a view over Gloucester and the Vale of Gloucester to the Malvern Hills in the north. To the west May Hill and the Forest of Dean can be seen with a high ridge in the far distance. From the southern end of the hill top there is a fine view to the south down the Vale of Berkeley to the original Severn Bridge in the distance.

Walked over from the nearby geocache. The TP seems to have been painted blue/green at some point. Cap in place - cemented in and some bits knocked off. Nearby is a Golden Jubilee beacon and what appears to have been a topograph, now vandalised No views today due to mist - I should imagine they are very good though

It is in the company of a beacon and a viewfinder, which unfortunately has had its direction plate removed (probably stolen by chavs). Excellent views. Tarmac/concrete plug.
