Surprisingly very easy bag from road junction, walked through open gate, up lane to mast and across field to trig, re-bagged Burrough Hill trig before and bagged Life Hill trig, Unsuccessfully looked for Millfield Clump trig and bagged Langton Caudle trig after.

Parked at road junction. Maniac tractor drivers dashing back and forth with full/empty trailers. Must have heard about approaching storm Abigail! Easy stroll up to pillar after climbing roadside gate.

Parking at road junc to south of trig, short walk up on farm track to summit of Whatborough Hill. Pillar in arable field - a mud-fest! Another FB with no 'S', second one today. Some chipping from top corners; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; front sight hole only open. Good all-round views, a little limited W.

Walk up from south with just tilled soil to cross to get to trig. Drove down from Preston on way to Stratford Upon Avon, so 75 minute + 60 mile detour. Lovely view from top on a sunny afternoon. Whatborough Hill, a P108 HuMP.

10/20 Walked up the stone/tractor track right to the pillar and enclosed reservoir. Very good all round views. A bit surprised that access was so easy considering the location of both a mast and reservoir. The pillar also has an OS metal plaque attached.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked at the road junction to the south near Harland Cottage. Entrance to the track to the resevoir and mast is easily achieved by straddling a low fence next to the locked gate. Signs of recent work but not today. Simply walked up the track which when followed leads all the way to the field in which the pillar stands. The gate was open and once into the field the pillar is quite visible. We used tractor tracks to make our way through the infant crop. Pillar in good condition. Pillar is in good condition and is adorned with one of the GPS Network plaques. Still retains an original indented letter plug. Lovely view point over the area (excluding mast and resrevoir) from this relatively elevated location.

Surely better called Whatborough Hill. 3 generations of us walked up track to mobile phone mast and circular covered reservoir (?) and top of TP found poking out of field of wheat behind. Followed breaks in crop to TP; original plug and OS plaque. Wide views over high Leicestershire from approach, but felt trespassy and we were seen and closely examined by farmer in Landrover on our way down, though I think he realised that a party including a 7 year old and a nearly 80 year old weren't worth bothering with.

Parked at the road junction and then walked up the dog leg track to the resevovoir and into the field that houses the trig. This hill is also a HuMP as Fasgadh states.
