Started in the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve - Knolls Car Park at SO 36978 97716 (take note someone has turned the road sign 90 degrees at the entrance to the CP) easy walk for the first part until you reach the ridge then the path becomes very stoney, the summit a trig point (TP6185) requires an easy scramble, excellent views all round.

Great area and summit with rocky paths.Heavy rain and wind started on the way out and on the summit.The Quartz blocks were as slippery as a bar of soap and the scramble to the summit was a real epic but made you feel you had earned it.Trig constructed of natural stone plug stolen.The views in the changing light reminded me of the weather on skye.

Caught bus from Pontesbury to Lydham and walked back along Shropshire Way with friends. This must be one of the few trig points in England which requires a scramble to get to it. Hazy view and a day of wall to wall sunshine. (Visited with wife in 1991 when thunder was rumbling around so we didn't spend long on the summit).

Probably the most iconic peak in the West Midlands. Past right over the top 9 years ago but made no effort to climb the summit rocks. Also immortalised into trig folklore by gracing the front cover of John Davies' invaluable work, Primary Trigs in Wales (you'll just have to read it to appreciate how an English pillar formed an integral part of the Welsh network).

Easy scramble up to this stone built pillar found in good condition. Cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open. Extensive panoramic views. Our final Marilyn for Area 38 - left the best for last.

Always wanted to visit the Stiperstones, and despite growing up in Shrops I've never made it until now. A fab trig point this one, and I'd rank it as one of the U.K's great trig's due to the scramble you have to undertake to get to it perched high on top of Manstone Rock. A cracking days walking from White Grit to reach the Stiperstones, also bagging the trig on Corndon Hill en-route. You can follow a detailed walking route and description of this one by tapping 'Fell Finder' into Google, thanks.

Not been this way since 1961 – I know that makes me an old git – some would even say a miserable old git. I was on a walking holiday hostelling with my first girlfriend – we started at Ross on Wye then Lynoshall, Clun and Newtown. We passed through The Bog and The Stiperstones on the way to Wilderhope Manor – all with a Bartholomew’s half inch map no gps and no mobile phones – how did we manage? You may ask – where is she now – well she went off to Liverpool University and joined the intelligentsia – I stayed home completing my apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce in Derby and joined the prolateriate. Perhaps this is what’s made me morose – or is it engineering that does this? Don’t think my route would have taken me to the trigpoint on the first occasion. Walking this time with CURRYSCRIM – he’s not so old and not so miserable – in fact quite cheerful – especially when he’s sampled the good ale in The Bridges pub. The pub formally called The Horseshoe is now owned by The Three Tuns Brewery and renamed The Bridges. Walked over to The Stiperstones from Betchcott Hill.

The heavily cemented stone built pillar is precariously perched on top of a jagged hilltop tor on the crest of a moorland ridge in the Shropshire Hills to the south west of Shrewsbury. It was reached on footpaths from Snailbeach at the northern edge of the ridge. The trig lacks a cap or plug. Some initials have been carved into the spider and the hooks are a bit battered. The FB S1523 was a vivid turquoise colour in the bright sunshine. Snailbeach has interesting remnants of the local lead mining industry. The woods above the village were very pretty and the views from the ridge top path were astounding. The ridge has several impressive steep sided valleys on its western flank. The path becomes rockier on the higher ground and in places some of the rocks sparkled in the sunshine. Entertaining scrambling was had on the Devil’s Chair. A light scramble was also required on Manstone Rock in order to reach the trig. The pillar has a phenomenal panorama. It looks over the vast Shropshire Plain to the north with distant hazy hills on the horizon. The Wrekin and the Buildwas Power Stations could be seen to the north east. The summit of Brown Clee Hill could be seen beyond the lengthy ridge of the Long Mynd to the east. The Black Mountains were in the distance to the south. To the south west Corndon Hill and the Kerry Hills could be seen with Plynlimon in the distance. Cadair Idris was in the distance to the west and Snowdon in the distant north west. The Breiddens and Berwyns could be seen to the north. The area has been designated a SSSI and a National Nature Reserve for its geology and its wildlife and there are several ancient cairns near the summit.

Left the best till last. Stone built pillar at the top of the highest rock, fairly easy to scramble up. Views are fantastic. It was very clear and sunny and almost all of wales could be seen, from the Black mountains up to the estuary of the Dee near Chester. Snowdon just about visible in the distance. I spent over an hour lounging around on the rock waiting for the rest of my walking party to catch up with me

Trig/hill bagging day in Shropshire, this was second trig after The Wrekin we did, one of the best positioned trigs I've seen, great hill, shame this isn't the highest point of Shropshire instead of the not so good Brown Clee Hill.

Fantastic location at the highest point on a rocky knoll. Was blowing hard so had to hang on tight scrambling up the knoll to get the photos.Views for miles all around.

Top marks for this one - in particular today. Decided to escape the fog that most of the country was covered in and head for Shropshire. Spent the day in the sunshine. Not many people around and time to admire this classic trig.

Perched on top of a rock, requires a bit of a scramble to get to it. Only stayed a few seconds on top though as it was rather windy!

A well positioned pillar high up on this great quartzite ridge. The set of rocks known as Manstone rocks is also the second highest point in Shropshire after Brown Clee Hill.

Easy parking and easy walk up but had I realised the final climb was so steep I would have put full boots on and attempted the scramble as it was the walk around the back is easy enough even when the rocks are wet. Tried the nearby cache but had no luck

Found this one on a walk across the Stiperstones, excellent scenary all around here, this must be one of the few remaining sections of heathland left in Britain. We weren't actually brave enough to go up to the Trig itself, it's up on a Cairn, though we did get a good view of it from the ground.

What a place to have a trig point!! This must be one of the most challenging-to-get-to-yet-reachable trig points in Britain. I was determined to get to it though. Involving a real scramble at the top of a breezy rock formation, it's well worth the effort as the views are wonderful. Do take care when climbing the rocks though. I went round the back where the ascent was less vertical and less windy and would recommend that route.

Having made it up the rocks to the trig it wasn’t too bad. Felt very much inclined to keep one hand on it at all times though. The plug has been abstracted, and there are a few letters scratched into the spider. Great trig, well worth the effort.

First Trig logged. Also, first non concrete trig I have ever seen, looks great with all the lichen on. There are great views from the top but a bit of a scramble to get to the top. Was a bit hairy once up there as the wind was rather gusty. Also called in at "Whinberry Pie - The Stiperstones" cache nearby.

Visited with some friends after the Marilyn Hall of Fame dinner in Ludlow. Lots of fun scrambles to the top of the tor, called Manstone Rock. This is the second highest summit in the county. The East side is almost climbing country, but there are easier ways around the back. Pillar is stone built.
