Nice views to the SW. Parked up at The Old Rectory in Ightfield Village and followed a relatively unused path up to the trig. The trig is behind an electric fence but there is easy access via electric fence handles at both end of the field.

Plastic cap. This one made the Bagging Assistant's day and she is still laughing. Live electronic fence - grounded it. Was crawling underneath on all fours - apparently jumped in the air like a startled cat. Resulted in a weald on my back. Bagging Assistant still laughing! She says it makes up for all the bogs she's been dragged through.

very easy to access. follow the farm track and there she is. then you get up close and once the electric fence is negotiated theres just the small matter of the moocow rutted ground and squelchy moat. the view is reasonable. plug is a plastic insert.

Drove up the track and then walked to pillar via a detachable electric fence cable. The pillar is surrounded by lots of boggy/muddy ground. Although fairly dry today, this could be a real quagmire after rain.

Good easy find. Walked up the farm track and down the footpath and ducked under the fence. Great views of the Llangollen hills and other nearby hills.

Just off a public path [which, as has been said, isn't marked in the field - incidentally, the path going in the opposite direction to the trig comes to an abrupt end facing 7-foot high sweet-corn!!]. There is a plastic plug replacement. All sightholes closed. Concrete base exposed about 12" all-round. It's in a pasture field and this is obviously a gathering ground for the animals. Lovely W views towards Wales. Large numbers of house martins chattering overhead.

Access from lane NE up concrete drive. Trig point lies just off drive to right in open pasture field. Beware, a bit boggy around base of trig.

In a muddy field on a footpath. Very good view westward to Wrekin, Caradoc, Long Mynd, Stiperstones, Long Mountain, Pumlumon, Berwyn, Gyrn Moelfre and many more. Very good looking pasture.. this is dairy country. Intact but with a plastic insert.
