Birthdate flush bracket trig pillar of Alan Dawson inventor of the Marilyns Hil list. After sleeping half the night on the summit slopes of his 21st birthday hill Shining tor (S2773). Have been taking a greater interest recently in the finer subtleties of the differing surfaces of the tops of pillars. One of the unique features of this one is the white dental chip filler. It's also got an awful lot of differently coloured pebbles in the concrete mix. This gives it a wonderfully knobbly/pebbly top.

Drove up the steep switchback road 2Km to the east, glad i met nothing coming the otherway. Despite the very showery weather the views across Manchester are impressive. Pillar surrounded by knee deep wet grass.

Second trig of the day after visiting the pillar at Higher Shelfstones. I'd walked up from the River Etherow after a long trek along from Glossop. There were interesting views of Greater Manchester to the west and the Peak District National Park to the east. I continued on to Brinnington to end a long, hard, hot day.

Asphalt plug. Private [owner unknown]. Not where you'd expect it to be, in Werneth Low Country Park; rather, in a roadside field over towards Romiley, from where it is a steep walk up on the road. Accessed by hopping one gate.

Learning a lot here! Meandered over Wernleth Low without doing any detailed research on Sunday to no avail. It's bigger than you think. But even on my second trip, by car this time, involved five minutes no more than twenty feet away before I spotted the pillar. Doh!
