Nice easy drive by pillar. In great condition having been painted white recently. No views as pillar on edge of trees but great views to the south from car park.

Looking good with its new coat of paint. Stopped by here on our way to a holiday in Southport. Went to the main car park first to use the facilities intending to drive back to the trig point but found it was on our walk around the park.

Returning from a day working in Liverpool. A trig you can find with only your road atlas! If approaching from the S it is the second car park and the trig is visible to your right soon after driving in. Good condition for a busy location, with original plug, FB facing S. No access problems at all. One side is wooded but the views on the other side were unexpectedly fine, West Pennine Moors, South Pennines, Cheshire, the Mersey and the Welsh mountains all visible today. Busy with people enjoying the park on a decent summers day.

Pillar from path into woods Walk forwards from here for the view.

Passed this location with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - so this was an opportunity to visit that was just too good not to miss. Pillar is situated on edge of car park and is both highly visible and easily accessible. Remarkably in excellent condition considering its location. An area of extensive views from this elevated position.

Had a few minutes to kill before a meeting nearby, so drove past to bag this one. Fine condition and shining white in the bright sunshine, spider still intact surprisingly for its position. Alma field presumably named after the Crimean battle is a great spot for kite flying, some views but not grand.
