Parked near garden centre just off Jacksmere Lane. Across Jacksmere Lane, the hedge ceases, and it was possible to wall across a grassy field alongside a hedge towards a group of trees hiding a pond. The trigpoint is easily accessible at the far side of the pond.

Parked on Jacksmere Lane next to the field in which the pillar is located, which has no hedge or fence. The pillar is behind a pond on the western side. However, as there is a brook on the western side, it is necessary to walk around the pond on the eastern side to access the pillar

The surrounding brambles seem to be a thing of the past. I could see from scouser's photo that it was clear of vegetation and so it proved. The waist high grass had been harvested and I managed to to jump over the adjacent brook cleanly. A highlight was to see masses of tadpoles in the pond. Enjoyed the rest of the day around the sand dunes of Formby Hills

In a lovely spot in a field but no views. Easy access from Jacksmere Lane straight up a waist high field of grass to the trig. As you follow the fence/hedge line to your right you will come to a clump of trees, which hides a pond. The trig is on he other side of the pond across a tiny brook. As you return, you will see a gate near where the tree clump ends in the corner. Don't bother going over it as it is private land and there isn't an easy way out. Just trace your steps back through the grass back to the road.

Covered by brambles and nettles in a copse across a small stream. Instead, I entered the copse from the adjoining field and trampled down yards of brambles to access the pillar. Bracket on the east (copse) side of pillar.

Short walk down side of field, managed to spot the trig quite easily at the side of the ditch next to a pond. It would have been much harder to see in summer covered in nettles and brambles.

Always a trig to visit in winter with wellies and better after a hard frost. Up field opposite entrance to Scarisbrick Nurseries which was very damp and already had the 2015 crop growing. Then just the ditch and brambles to content with as it began to rain.
