Seen from the road whilst driving into Ludlow so can't vouch for condition. I intended to come back for this one but didn't manage it.

Walked from Ludlow town centre, up Parys Road to pick up a very muddy footpath (caused by the builders of new housing - have almost obliterated the footpath), which led across the A49. Along a short footpath and across two fields to find the pillar which retains its cap (raised lettering) & one s/h open. A rather dull and mucky approach for what is my first Shropshire trig.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 8th April 1936 costing 2.12s.4d. Built as an early primary substitute station for Titterstone Clee, it was never required as such. It was eventually computed as secondary triangulation station SO59/10 within the Church Stretton block during 1948. Levelled for height to Class 1 tertiary standards in 1972. Last maintained by the OS in June 1976. SITE VISIT: Approached from ENE. Nearest safe parking eastbound is at SO533762, where the road begins to widen for the junction with the B4364. There is a continuous pavement along the SE side of the A4117 back to the trig. Primary substitute for Titterstone Clee. Pillar in roadside grazing field. Column in good condition. Spider retains replacement OS centre cap with raised small lettering. Flush bracket face ENE, compass measurement 78. Vented through SW sight hole. 203 open outlook view spans from NE clockwise to WSW, remainder is blocked by houses.

First pillar I have not been able to get right next to. Horrible parking and the other side of a thick main road hedge. Take the photo and move on.

Drove down to farm to ask for permission, no one about, none trig bagging friend said 'the farmer won't come out with his gun as it's raining, so just hop over and bag it' - so I did!

Final stop of the day before getting off back to Wilts. Parked at farm entrance, hopped the double b/w fence and crossed 110m of open pasture to trig - probably not a good idea on a weekday as in full view of farm, no-one around on a Sunday. Pillar is approx 12m in from field boundary. It's in good condition despite some cracking below FB; original cap with raised lettering; rear sight hole only open; exposed plinth. Good 360deg views to local hills and countryside, N partially obscured by row of cottages.

Decided to stay on the road side of the hedge for this one. It was rather wet, we parked up almost opposite, and we saw a bird of prey sitting on the trig! Unfortunately it flew away before I could get my camera out.

Tricky to get at, the PROW from the road just west of the yellow cottages gives access to the wrong field. Go through the gate follow the hedge parallel to the road then R infield to gate through hedge then L and retrace steps on other side to Pillar, which is obvious. Exit to track access to farm is over two strands of barbed wire. Excellent views to the two Clee Hills and back to Ludlow. A lovely spot bagged as a drive by on return from Ludlow Golf Club.

Superb views to Clee Hills. Well worth a little trespass.

Revisit for a closer look. Slight cracking at FB height as per earlier log but I will go with Good. Very neat metal cap with small raised letters. Frosty earlyish morning.

Could see from the farm drive: there was no obvious way into the field. The nearby entrance to a footpath seems to have been block, probably because it no longer goes anywhere. Noone around to ask for permission and the fence was barbed.

Nabbed it on the way to a business meeting. Didn't climb the fence, so took picture from 100m. No S on the FB, good view to Titestone Clee. Reason no S possibly because all other pillars with adjacent numbers are primaries, so maybe FB made from same cast. Private

After visit to nearby Clee Hill it came as a surprise that this trig is so close and yet so low 134m versus 533m on Clee Hill. The trig is so close to the main A road and yet hidden behind a hedge so is not noticed by many.

Good number. Difficult access potentially, but walked across the field, after negotiating the nut high barbed wire fence and bagged it. (my missus declined, but thats women for you). Plug with raised lettering.

Intact pillar on a very substantial concrete base in the middle of a small paddock adjacent to the A4117. Unfortunately no way to get at it from the road so I asked permission at the farm. The original plug has been replaced and very neatly riveted down. There is some slight cracking to the north face of the pillar but this has been very carefully repaired. Good views eastwards to Clee Hills and westwards over the town of Ludlow.
