Parked at junction of A52 near land rover garage. Walked to Windycote Land and the footpath south towards trig point. The footpath along the hedge is totally overgrown, so used the field boundary to the stile over to the other side of the hedge. To access the trig field had to push through hedge at this point.

Parked at the corner. Very wet ground from the recent heavy rain. The fence is becoming unsafe but I managed to get over without damaging either myself or my trousers.

Bagged the Overmoor HuMP first and then came down here using the footpath through the farm. I was going to take the track but as I approached the gate to the north of the farm a man drew up in his van so I volunteered to hold the gate open for him and then thought it would be daft not to go the footpath route. The final approach to the trig involves hopping over a fence the act of which cost me another pair of trousers. Beginning to loose count of the number of trousers I rip whilst out trigging!

Parked on corner of Windycote/March lanes. Kept to rhs of hedge (ie not the path on left side) and aimed for top rh corner of field, through a gap there into next field & the pillar. Very wet under foot today and plenty of sheep about.

Would have been a welligton boot job with very wet ground and riddled with holes from cows. However, ground largely frozen so I was able to pick a careful route across

just about to abandon car (safety ) near sharp bend in road when a very friendly young lady on way to farm showed me the error of my ways and let me drive up to duckpond in farm yard and pointed me in direction of trigpoint.

Best approach is to take the track west a few yards towards windycote Farm then diagonally up across field and through gate. Trig lies at the end of the next field. I decided to apprach from the path which runs south from the corner in March Lane. Unfortunately, a thick hedge with no gaps seperates you from the trig point. I did however managed to find a gap in the fence from the south side, but this was very waterlogged. This whole area is very waterlogged (see my picture)

The footpath leading to the trig must go through the muddiest two fields in Staffordshire. (We parked at the sharp corner on March Lane). It's quite easy to find a gap to either climb over or crawl under the hedge separating the trig from the path. Plug with indented lettering.
