On a wild and wet afternoon we ventured up here to find the nearby virtual geocache and try to find this one. Spotted between a number of bushes, Even if there was a 'view' it would not have been possible today.

My first visit ever to the Wirral. Here on a junior shark dive at the Blue Planet with Melissa. But first a trig visit. And this one is easy as they come. A car park (busy) and a very short walk to the pillar which is hard to miss on the way up to the viewpoint. Lovely views over the Dee to Wales. Pillar in good condition, with a red hue, standing on a plinth in some gorse with no access issues.

The trig itself is skulking (or is it sulking) in some scrub on a plinth but the summit itself with its weathered rocks; benches and toposcope (of a sort) is well worth a visit with good views over the Wirral. Convenient parking close to the summit.

A shy retiring pillar this one. Difficult to spot from the nearby view point even though I had just come from the pillar. Normally pillars act like magnets, but I doubt that 1 in a 100 visitors to this hill visit it, notice it or are aware of its existence.

Carpark to SE, off the A540. Short walk on woodland paths. Better views to be had 40m further W. Pillar has a reddish tinge to it and sits on a large plinth. Top cap missing, replaced with a composite disc. 'BSM' style FB; All sight holes open. No views, that I remember - a dull, wet and windy day. With Alex Cameron.

Bit of a random day, planned on a seaside walk and clocked the hill - no gps or map guessed there might be a trig. A surprisingly fine and diverse place walked past the old hall, lunch at Benty Farm (v nice). Slightly sad there was no trig after all, then watching heavy rain come in from Wales and seeing sun pools over Bowland, Winter Hill and the Dee estuary - there it is just below the high point ensconced by gorse! Excellent, just back to the car in time for the rain

At hill top mounted on concrete plinth on sandstone outcrop. Competes with nearby topograph on slightly lower (?) outcrop for attention. A fine hill top with public access and grand views out over both the Dee Estuary and across the Wirral to Liverpool. Moderate NW wind, a bank of white cumulus billowing up into otherwise clear skies.

Almost my local trig! Used to have to run past this during the "elastic mile" at school. The run was more like 5 miles. Added some pics.

Popular with geocachers by the looks of things. She sits on top of a large once red concrete base on this sandstone hill. Her view is not as good as it might be but it is still a good location to live.

27/30 for the day. I think I've been here before as part of a nearby multi cache. Weather closed in so this was going to be my last of the day but things improved by the time I got through the tunnel so I carried on!!
