lovely peaceful woodland, some wild flowers where the tree cover is less dense.

Parked at end of road near 191 spot height and followed the path through the woods to the trig. Unfortunately, there's no view. A quick stroll further S down the lane reveals the vista towards the Clee Hills.

Parked on the roadside and walked through a glorious pine forest on the greenest moss carpet. A true sanctuary on a blustery evening just before dark.

a downpour of almost biblical proportions meant i got lazy/ cheeky and drove to within 10ft of this one. being in a forest in a thunderstorm maybe not my finest moment! pillar is in vgc though a little slimy today.. still retains a lot of white paint.

A good morning's ride out. Left bike at end of cul-de-sac road and walked through woods - marked footpath not evident, though wood thinning in progress and vehicle tracks all over. Returned by forest road which I could have rideen. Pillar by track but surrounded by trees.

Initially misread where I was on the map and ended up in someone's garden. Fortunately, the guy was mowing the extensive lawn on a very upmarket tractor gizmo and he redirected me to the correct path! When I walk through woodlands like this, I wonder who owns them? A lovely white-painted pillar in the conifer trees just off a forest trail. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. S/E sightholes open, others closed. No real views due to the trees.

Fairly easy find in a pleasant wood,met gamekeeper who didnt appear to mind me taking a shortcut off the footpath.

Room to park at the road head without blocking the houses. Nice easy stroll after the last trig no evidence of major felling yet

The trig is by a well-worn track in coniferous woodland. The trees spoil the view, but have protected the pillar from the elements. Surprised my GPS worked under the tree cover.

Perfect condition, still white as well, the protectiopn of trees. Set in pleasant forest land, but a lot of trees will go soon, they have been spotted. A delightful spot.
