I see what everyone means by the danger of accessing this trig but I got around it by wearing a high vis jacket and there's a gate you can climb over at SJ594426 just 30 metres down from the trig. The FB is facing the field and very low down on the trig which is in the hedge. The FB was covered in undergrowth so had to hack away to get to it. The high vis jacket/vest did the trick. Every vehicle skirted well away from me once they saw the bright yellow idiot walking aklong the roadside ;) I have to say, it didn't look like it was leaning to me. In fact apart from all the under/over growth it looked in good condition. Tiny damage to top right corner on FB side.

The trig Didn't look like it was leaning to me but difficult to see with all the growth around it.

Good way to do this awkward one by bicycle, coming along from Whitchurch station. Fortunate that the foliage was thin because I very nearly rode right past it.

Parked in the Combermere Arms car park and followed footpaths until SE of pillar then headed for it. Eventually found a way over barbed wire fence and up to trig. Quite a bit of gardening was required for the reveal.

from Shropshire! parked pretty much on a nice fellas deiveway. small cars come in handy. walked up in field to trig. yes its on the slant but theres not a great deal of damage.. the usual scars from agricultural hedge trimming. the road is very busy and to walk up the road you'd be raking a huge risk. the fb is in the field anyway.

A trig for those with a death wish! Parking is a pain and the trig is buried in a hedge on a very busy road - getting a pic is a matter of traffic dodging

Saw this when I was driving past. I would agree with others about access. Didn't stop as I didn't think it was safe. I can't see it lasting much longer. (What happens when a trig is removed?)

This one has certainly had a nasty knock in the past and has been dislodged off its foundations. It is located just behind the bend sign on the SE side of the road. Park on the grass verge on the Cheshire side of the county boundary and walk back to it. Note this is a busy road with no pavements so it might be better to reach it by walking up the field parallel with the road. Flush bracket faces into field.

Roadside, just in Cheshire and genuinely hard of access. Silage crop rules out the field just now, and its a near suicidal roadwalk on the otherside of the hedge. Timed my road trip with roadworks and lights, ran like .... when the one side was stuck behind red. The road is fast, busy and in a cutting with no shoulder to hide on. The pillar is falling over, at a lean and pretty well bashed about. Every lorry scraping the cutting undermines it a bit more. It will be removed soon, hopefully when they widen the road. Used the camera to get the number, it was of course facing away from the road.
