300th Log (there are 2 repeats I admit)...First proper two trig walk of the Summer (must do better). Love this very strange hill country on the limestone/grit divide. Wanted to visit Sheen for ages - a real beacon over the Staffs/Derbys border. Start at Longnor for oatcakes, Pilsbury Castle and High Wheeldon next.

Walked across to High Sheen Farm to ask permission. The lady at farm told us to use access from road. Not sure if they actually are owners of land with trig on. But followed her instruction using a gate on the NW side near to Fernyknowle.

Third trig of 7. Walked S along upper Dove Valley through Crowdicote taking motte and bailey castle at Pilsbury and up from minor road NW of trig. Steep climb but great all round views from top. Got down to the track to High Sheen Farm and was feeding horse in field when a Range Rover pulled up and young couple inquired what I was doing. Fobbed off some excuse which they accepted with some doubt. Horse was called Cracker. On to Bank Top.

I approached the building to the east and met someone on the driveway and was told it wasn't on their land. I think I misinterpreted their advice and ended up then approaching it from the North. Would probably have been better to go aorund onto the lane at the NW. A lovely trig and craggy top.

I thought I was going to get hassle when someone approached me in the field below the trig, but I got the all clear to head up. Farmers with Christmas spirit- whatever next!? This is a great one- looked after and painted white. Super view.

Easy, (OK - short), climb from the North West. Nice spot at the top, especially on a sunny day like this. And is it kept in such sparkling clean nick by that bloke from the village? Thence to the Staffordshire Knot. Lovely beer. But NO CRISPS! "We don't do that sort of thing." Nearly ruined the day! Passing the pillar again on the east road it looked particularly impressive. (Mr Sheen!!!!! Geddit?)

SE from High Wheeldon across open access land. Emerged on to lane at SK103651 and followed it downhill through Crowdecote taking PROW at SK097649. There followed a confusing amble along the Dove Valley to Under Whitle - paths rather faint, poorly signed and often rather boggy. Eventually emerged onto lane at SK106635 and made for High Sheen Farm where I asked for permission. Owners could not have been more friendly or helpful. Informed me that trig is not on their land but the actual owner is happy for people to visit. They even gave me directions so I could avoid climbing walls and barbed wire! Take lane SW (signed to Brund) and after passing a few trees on your left look out for a stile immediately following a metal gate. From there head uphill, crossing broken walls and through open gates to the summit. A superb craggy top with excellent views across the Manifold and Dove valleys where several farmers were busy 'mowing their lawns'. Trig itself is obviously cared for with a lovely coat of white paint and original metal cap. However, one wire loop missing and chip on top edge - hence recorded as slightly damaged (see photo). Returned to Longnor along Manifold Trail.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Seems to have permissive access and apparently a popular picnic spot. High Sheen Farm. Peak District National Park. Prominent white pillar on impressive craggy top overlooking sleepy Sheen village. Broken-down walls give access from the road to the north and from the RoW to the south west. The landscape of the upper Dove & Manifold is intensely rural and has a beguiling charm.

Despite this unfortunate trig being being located in Staffordshire at least it's on a nice rocky outcrop. Parked at road junction to north & went up lanr to south west. there is a stile just after a gate with a faint path to the summit & it's good views. I need it to get all those on sheet 119.
