Classic trig, perched on grassy hillock, visible for long way off. Slight damage to corners, looks like some sort of cutting tool used on it. As with other visitors, the best place to park is by the post box nearby.

Came here after bagging the 'Swan Lake' geocache. This is a lovely spot, just off a public path on a small tump. It looks like the original OS plug with rivets but no lettering on it which I haven't found very often. OS anti-vandal plaque. S sighthole open, others closed. Traces of white paint. Concrete base exposed about 8" all round. In a sheep pasture with wonderful views from E right round to S and then NW.

Its probably easiest to park by the post box on this narrow lane through Wirswall. Walk E along the lane to the track leading to Wicksted Old Hall and after 50 metres cross a stile on the right and follow line of telegraph poles across field to gate. The trig point is in the nest field over to the left on a grassy hillock. Good views to the south.
