I couldn't even see this pillar from the footpath, I had to go around the compound to the other side before spotting it, I then had to wade through head high nettle, brambles and thorns to get to it.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there (well buried in brambles) and in good condition.

parked on lower road directly south of the pillar, just below a gated driveway ... followed the path up thro the wood beginning on the right of the driveway until it opens out into the field ... the pillar is in the middle of a biggish patch of brambles in front of the phone mast.

Parked near FP sign. Nice walk up through forest then left through field to reservoir. Trig round other side but it is buried in brambles and nettles. Nice location apart from that.

Absolutely enchanting sandstone gorge on the way up and a partial solar eclipse going on at the same time means that this trigpoint scores very highly indeed for me. A one of a kind morning to recall with very fond memories.

Found while tackling the Myddle Dyddle series. Parked at GC3N1FJ where there is a large layby. Trig is overgrown with brambles making it tricky to obtain the S number. Top is intact.

In brambles on west side of mast (but not in fenced enclosure). Probably natural high point but covered reservoir just to east slightly higher. Limited views. Cold west wind.

Parked in layby just to W of 'The Nest'. The view of the sandstone cliff from the road is impressive. Less so is the trig, however, which is almost lost to brambles and dead nettles. Disappointing view.

Well overgrown with nettles at the moment (thats British summers for us!) but luckily there is a good trail in, no doubt from the cachers doing the Myddle Diddle Series (as were we)

Walked up through steep woodland path from road, into field at top. Trig is next to a short telecoms mast, and is currently well protected by nettle growth. Good views to the NE.

Came off the A528 on to Lower Road (passing Webscott farm on our right) to park at the end of a (long) driveway, under a tree which was signed "The Nest". There was actually a footpath/trail post at the end of this drive which we took. It was a short but very impressive walk through a forest (the quarry was something new!). The actual let down (for me) was seeing the rather ugly radio mast in the field above the quarry which the trig was sitting infront of. Points for the walk, not the trig!

No problems with seeing why this spot was chosen - the ridge is very prominent. The Grinshill Sandstones are very impressive and have made a huge contribution to the local buildings and elsewhere - Chequers (PM's country res), St Chad's Cath in Birmingham and many, plus both bridges, in Shrewsbury have the pale top sandstones and the deep red ones from these outcrops and at Grinshill Quarries. A wonderful surprise walking up through the woods to the ridge top. Weather, unfortunately worsening as the afternoon wears on - over to Grinshill now.

A pillar I have been to many times in my Shropshire boarding school days. I have also been to the radio tower on the reservoir as part of work many times too. Accessed by the layby on the Harmer Hill to Myddle road when I got there the pillar was sadly surrounded by nettles and brambles but was still able to get to it ok.

Another pillar by a mobile phone mast!! Actually, I parked under the old quarry [where it said No Parking] and walked up through the trees. An excellent piece of sandstone and I might have admired the area a bit more had it not been tipping with rain! S above the numbers on the FB and original plug with slightly-indented letters.

Having forgotten my maps and only having a road atlas and GPS with me, I was grateful to Bridgeman for the advice on where to park. I very much enjoyed the walk through the woods up to the trig.

Good condition and intact. Another BsM type, as are many in northwest Shropshire. By a reservoir on a well used footpath. Amazingly the pillar is outside the fence, and accesable, but it may be overgrown in summer.The pillar is built on a rock outcrop. WARNING. The nearby woods hide 20m overhanging crags - quite unexpected, but this is another well quarried piece of sandstone.
