Geocaching near by, and paused to admire this impressive monument, which is securely protected by stout railings. Before the trees grew so tall this must have been an impressive landmark, but now it's something of a hidden surprise !

This can be seen from a great distance from the south but trees around the site prevent any views of the surrounding countryside which is a pity.

Never even knew this existed despite living in Birmingham for over 30 years!

Obelisk in woodland clearing. Immediate views rather limited; perhaps the monument's construction preceded the trees.

Built in honour of the Sixth earl of Plymouth by the Worcestershire Regiment of Yeomanry Cavalry in 1834.

Anglesey limestone obelisk fairly glinting in unaccustomed sunshine today!

Visited at dusk. For some reason I was expecting something bigger.
