Parked in Wetton at the little free car park but lucky to get a space. CP taken up with an abundance of Horse boxes. Bumped into the horses and riders later when driving down the road after logging the TP ( local hunt coming back up the road out of the Manifold valley ) Good views from the TP on a very good day for visibility. Plug filled, all other metal work intact.

Well. Thoroughly disorganised. A one-o'clock start turned out to be a two-thirty start. We parked by Carr Lane (?) at about three-thirty to be greeted by an unidentified "the car park is up the lane"! Indeed it was, despite the sign saying 2.5 miles!! Anyway. Diagonally through the fields up to the abandoned building and then follow the sheep on a 100 yard trespass to the tumulus and pillar. I suspect the views, especially down the Manifold, were fantastic, but it was getting dusk and I was in a bad mood. Horror of horrors - we went back the way we came! And the bloody pub was shut!!!

Timed it nicely for a great sunset. Right in the middle of the World Cup final so the normally peaceful countryside was super extra specially quiet.

Surprised I've not bagged this one before now as I've visited Wetton on a couple of previous occasions and this trig is easily accessed (if a little trespassy)from the bottom end of the village. Took the PROW heading South from junction of High Withes Lane / Carr Lane. After following the PROW across a couple of fields I then veered SE passing through open gates between fields to reach the pillar. Original metal cap has been replaced with tarmac but otherwise in good condition. Great views to the E / S / W which reminded me why I so love the White Peak. Could just about make out the pillar atop Soles Hill.

Parked at Weag’s Bridge and walked up Larkstone Lane – my satnav had brought me down this way – you don’t want to meet anything coming the other way down here. Trigpoint sitting on a excavated Tumulus. Good views. Continued on to Musden Low.

Despite this unfortunate trig being being located in Staffordshire, I need it to get all those on sheet 119. A bit difficult to park close by, blocked gateway on road to east trotted up field to pillar. Wetton full of tourists as usual.

Lovely day, lovely views. I approached this from the footpath on the West side, heading North towards Wetton. There is an obvious "path" to the top in a NW direction from SK 11170 54420 - you can clearly see the trig. It is a steep climb but worth it.
