Another visit to this pillar as I love the remoteness on these Moors although some of the farms leave a lot to be desired,more like scrapyards the stuff they keep!!Great memories though on the adventures with my buddy and the kids.

In the midst of a still smouldering moor which has recently seen an extensive fire. Parked not far from start of track and headed up to trigpoint. The smell was very strange, we read later that the blaze had burnt for four days. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/news/local-news/gallery/moorlands-fire-pictures-firefighters-tackle-1735241

Last of 7 trigs, tired but well worth the walk from Hill House trig along the minor roads. Easy trig to find, paths take you there from the road. Marvelous views all round, well worth it. Getting late, decided to thumb it to get back to the car in Earl Sterndale, something I haven't done in years. First lift with huge wagon to main road, driver was formerly a sheep farmer in Brecon Beacons and missed it, but bills had to be paid. Second lift took me very kindly to my car, bloke worked servicing coffee machines covering a huge area, he looked knackered and hated the driving. I was very grateful for the lift, and a welcome ending to a tiring but pleasurable day walking and trigging.

This is the jackpot on the views to effort ratio, a really easy 2 minute stroll from the road to enjoy amazing all round views on a beautifully sunny evening, particularly of the Roaches from where we were returning. Very well cared for, immaculate white paint job, W and E s/holes open, plastic cap (and some poppies resisting being blown away around the base). (450th pillar log).

The same gorgeous day. Just had to stop at the viewpoint on the way up to The Mermaid. Ramshaw, Roaches, and Hen Clouds ablaze in low winter sun. Just amazing. Easy jog up from any point on the triangle of roads surrounding the pillar. Once there it's really nice to see the strings of moorland roads meandering around, all deserted of course. But then, magically, a red post van trundled in the distance. It felt like I had stepped into CBeebies!

Pretty much due West from Revidge along an obvious trod and then across deeply rutted heather moorland to the Leek Road / Newtown Road junction. After this, the tarmac of Leek Road and Dukes Drive was a welcome relief. Trig was highly visible from quite a distance and easily accessed from all directions. Great 360 views with Hen Cloud, The Roaches, Ramshaw Rocks, Shutlingsloe and Tittesworth Reservoir all recognisable on a clear but breezy day. Trig itself is well cared for with a lovely coat of white paint, plaque commemorating 5th Staffs home guard and OS plate indicating it is part of the GPS passive station network. Alas, the metal cap has been replaced with plastic.

The first of three trigpoints on a route taken from “Peak District Trigpointing Walks”. Parked at the viewing point about a mile to the south west – fantastic views from here towards Ramshaw Rocks and the Roaches on a warm breezy day with some sunshine. Pity to see the Mermaid pub closed and turned into holiday accommodation on the way up to the trigpoint. A great trigpoint with views all round. Continued onto Revidge and Hill House.

Another fine January day, good views and lots of people around - even this trig was visited by people shortly after I retreated. A short hop from the road.

Classic Primary with fabulous all round views. But why's it called Blake Meer? It's on Merryton Low, and not a menation of Blake Meer on the map anywhere. Nice plague on the pillar

Weren’t planning on doing this one today, but Bekie spotted it in the distance so we decided to go for it. Approach from the road a little swampy at the moment, but not too much of a problem. Trig point in good condition, but plug has been replaced with a plastic stopper. Excellent 360 degree views of surrounding hills and dales. (Will upload photos when we return home on 21st August)

Pillar has been adopted as a war memorial. In a triangle of moorland surrounded by roads. Hill is on Clem's list and was an easy bag on the way home from a day on the bike.

Close to the road, down a very good track - no need to walk over any moorland. Popped in on my way between "Very White Peak" (GCGBNK) and the Roaches.

Good views over the Staffordshire Moors. Odd that the FB number does not have an S in it (even between the B and M!) How many more like that are there out there.

Parked up on the road, and followed a footpath up to the trig. There were no signs stating private land etc. The trig point is also a memorial to the 5th Staffs Leek Battalion Home Guard

Could see this one from the road below but couldn't reach it. I'll investigate getting permission to get onto the land!
