No longer visible in the field which has been partially excavated. The pillar appears to have been removed by the quarry works but it is difficult to be sure.

re-visit. Hadn't checked website in advance. I thought it was a short walk up an arable field previously: this has now had areas scraped clear of topsoil in places and long dumped piles of material elsewhere. As there are security cameras by the gate and machinery was in use further away I didn't attempt any entry into the area to carry out any search.

Plastic cap. lots of exploratory boreholes and bunds in place. Currently wheat, may be a big hole in the ground this time next year.

Wheat crop still low enough to see the trig from the road, and enough tractor lines available to approach it with little damage.

I could see the pillar from the other side of the fence. I was going to climb over and walk up to it, but in the end decided this was close enough for me to claim a visit.

East access from the road. No crops in the field. Too much mist to see very far.

Easily accessible from the gateway under the electricity pylon to the north east. This is next to the bridge over the motorway. On farmland, but can be seen (crops permitting!) from the gateway if you are uneasy about wandering across farmland.

An exceptional viewpoint from such a non-prominant hill. Titterstone Clee Hill in Shropshire and the Wrekin were clearly visible. Is surrounded by wheat at the moment - third tractor track from the pylon will access it. Park on the concrete apron of a minor access road adjacent to the pylon - just short of the motorway bridge. Pass through a gap in the metal gate post and fence,turn L under the pylon and on for 50m towards the mobile phone mast. Turn R uphill - 100m

Wheat and all

Tried to do this one a few years ago but there was maize in the field which went above my head and I couldn't see the trig, today was no problem as the field was clear of crops.

Drove through country lanes covered in thick ice from the south to get to this one. Ground was frozen solid so parked in gate and accessed trig via tractor lines.

Similar approach to that taken by Deego.Had to walk up the field before trig was visible due to wheat crop in field. Still some traces of white paint visible.

Down south from Edinburgh to Wolverhampton for a three hr course. Unbeleivable waste of time. Might as well open up a few bonus trigs!

Easy access from the lane, just a hop over the fence. It stands in splendid isolation in the centre of what was an arable field with stubble left and in the process of being ploughed. Fortunately I could avoid the ploughed bits to get to the pillar! It's all intact with a plastic plug replacement. Some white paint. W sighthole closed, the others open. Concrete base exposed all round. Excellent all-round views over Cannock Chase and to Clee Hills. Shame about the phone masts and the M6/M6 Toll. Nice old pink-painted windmill in the adjacent village.

So Deego was the lowe bar of the fence part broken on your crossing of it :-) had planned to walk direct while on the M6 geoCache till I realised how badly the toll had messed the minor road network. Drove round and did a hit and run from the mast. Number six on the day

Parked by the Moible phone mast and hopped over the fence. Good views if you ignore the M6 ,M6 toll road, phone mast and power lines.

Overlooks the M6 and the roadworks for the new West Midlands by pass toll road. The yellow road was closed on my visit, so parking was a doddle as was the simple stubble walk to the pillar from near a mobile phone mast.
