Does a 2" chip constitute slightly damaged? I don't think so. fine open spot though the view is limited by the flatness of the area. feels a fair way from anywhere although the traffic sound is still there..

A pleasant circular walk from the White House car park to the south and along the beautiful Sherbrook Valley, although if you do the last quarter of a mile back to the car park along the road be careful - the traffic moves fast. The tp is in a commanding location overlooking heathland. Must be getting on for 30 years since I was last here, and its great to be back

Good views. I walked here from Brocton Field TP, not the most direct route, but I did startle a couple of young deer only a few feet away. Im not sure who jumped the most. Finally got to the trig for a quick log.

On the east side of the Cannock Chase country park, on edge of major plantation. OK condition. Definitely no S with the number, but not a primary, even though numbers either side ARE primaries (Wirswall and Blakemere) Resin plug. Public. ADD ON I think The Butts is a Substitute Primary, replacing the defunct Castle Ring (Old)

Once hemmed in on most sides by trees, the view is reappearing. Trees were being felled nearby during my visit. I expect the recently numbered pillar across the Sherbrook Valley was a replacement due to visibility problems. (no.. It was a simple rebuild) Pillar is painted a light green and has a plastic plug replacement. It is on a concrete plinth. Recent visit 3/5/04. More trees have gone since last November.. Views have opened up well. Lovely spring day
