2/2 visited today after doing a circular walk from/to Weag's Bridge. Really like Soles Hill, the trig was perched on a ridge overlooking the Manifold Valley, but situated on Throwley Moor. I came from Musden Low via Calton Green, Slade House to Soles Hollow. Ascended by handrailing the second wall after the farm. Took in the magnificent views before continuing N along the ridge and rejoined the path at the wood edge. This path then joins the Manifold Way. Gifted to our four legged companions who are sharing our adventures. Always by our side and uncomplaining.....thank God!!

Used the car park at Weags bridge for two day trig round. Access down the manifold Valley and using PROW up through wood heading into Soles Hollow. As previous logs had suggested, headed up the steep banking at the end of the wood to follow the ridge line to the pillar. All metal work intact. Good visibility on a reasonably warm day, admired the views whilst having lunch. Next stop Musden Low, which looked to be a fair way distant.

Great walking with mate, Tracker Dog. Had to cut short planned trig hunt, bagged two instead of four. Stiff walk up to ridge from Soles Hollow track, but well worth it with views from it and the trig. Like previous trigger, good place for a cuppa, and a sarnie.

SW from Wetton Low to rejoin the PROW heading S from Wetton village to Larkstone Lane, passing an interesting derelict barn. West along Larkstone Lane to the PROW onto the NT owned Beeston Tor. Down into the Manifold Valley, and across the dry riverbed to join the Manifold & Hamps Way. Shortly after crossing the also dry bed of the River Hamps for the third time there is a path that heads up through Soles Wood on a right hand bend in the river. Climbed up the wooded valley. Immediately after breaking from the woods I zig-zagged up the hill and along the ridge to the trig point. This is the best approach if you don't want to trouble what seems like a friendly farmer as you can use the ridge as cover. Superb views with hills in all directions spoilt only by a quarry to the SSW. Pillar is in good order with original cap having shallow indented lettering. Had a chat with a serious hill-bagger who'd completed the Welsh 3000s challenge.

So. At last. Day one. A walk! Parked at Weags Bridge after nearly having a President Obama moment on the hump backed bridge. Traipse down the cycle track is frankly a bit dull, (apart maybe from the hippy commune. What's that all about?). Then nearly, oh so nearly, a heaven sent moment. At the very far end, just as we need some R&R, a tea-room ... open ... with a HOT TUB in the garden!!!!!! No, really. We need to keep going. It's getting late. A short steep climb into refreshing high ground and the stealth route suggested by whoever, down Soles Hollow until its time to trudge up out of sight of what seems to be a quite friendly farmer. (Especially subvert on the ridge.) Again, probably good views on a good day. This was dry but low cloud. Is that 2 or 4?

A joint visit with Carole. We drove up the farm track to Throwleymoor Farm with the intention of asking permission to visit. No one at home or at least no one heard our knocking. The pillar can be seen from the farm so we went up to it through a series of gates and gateways - nothing to climb. Pillar is in good condition and still retains an original plug. A superb location to view the surrounding countryside.

Third trigpoint on a walk from Weag’s Bridge came across from Musden Low. Was expecting to walk up to the trigpoint from the east but this route is very exposed to Throwleymoor Farm so continued down Soles Hollow to the start of the wood then up to the ridge and approached from the cover of the ridge as suggester by Lone Walker. Nice location with good views. Thought I might bump into mrs moo cow up here at this unfortunate Staffordshire trigpoint but no such luck!
