From the forestry car park and up the permissive path then the mtb track onto the summit. Low cloud meant no view.

Drove up the track leading to "Hazel Coppice" and parked in a lay-by with a NO TIPPING sign. You are less than 150 meters from the trig here, but it's quite steep from here up. I took the most direct route on my right opposite the gate down to Monstay Farm and came across a mountain bike track and then followed that to the trig. Great views of Brown Clee Hill and Titterstone Clee. Elevation 339 meters. Trig all ok - replacement cap. Also YSM308.

Centre missing,concrete plug. Walked up the road from the Vinnalls car park, then turned sharp left along a forestry track [it's possible to drive along the track] to a path on the right where the fp cuts down to Monstay farm. the path soon became a downhill bike track very narrow and winding, and muddy came out on the bridleway near the pillar. A notice by the pillar advises bikers that it's an 'extreem' downhill course and full body armour must be worn, not a good way up at the weekend.

A fine view to be had from the trig, E & W a little limited by trees, but N & S very good. After battling through brambles for half an hour (there is an easier way up, but attacking from the path due S of the trig seemed like a good idea at the time!) finding the top of this HuMP and seeing the vistas presented suddenly made my lacerated legs and arms (still in shorts and t-shirt) somehow worthwhile. Pillar in v. good condition; cap missing, asphalt plug; 1 sight hole open, 2 closed, 1 undetermined as below soil level.

I approached this by parking at the forest entry near Gorsty and headed up the forest track. When I was almost directly south of the trig a steep path goes up through the wood virtually directly to the trig. The wood is evidently popular with mountain bikers who have their own notice board near the trig which sits in a small clearing on the summit.

Many visits, mostly before the coming of the fat wheeled bike. Never seen the name before. Its on Bringewood's 2nd summit and usually known as Bringewood. The highest point of the forest, falsly called by outsiders as "Mortimer Forest" a foul infliction, is High Vinnalls but that used to be always covered in Scots pines so the surveyors went for the then bald summit across the valley. I have never heard of Maryknoll having a trig, but it did used to have a TV mast, often an objective for a walk. This is amongst the select band of trig pillars I have skied to. Views limited even before the trees grew by the nearby bulk of High Vinnalls and Maryknoll, separated by Sunny Gutter.
