Parked on Red Lane. Climbed through a gap in the hedge and then walked through two fields up to the pillar, which can be found amongst several electricity pylons, which were all crackling away. There was a gas powered scatterbird device in the trig field which went off several times, making a very loud bang!

Dramatic setting, beneath the pilons which stretch into the distance. View of The Wrekin and Cosford to the North and East. Approach, leaving the track and sympathetic skirting the crop fields to the brow of the hill.

Cycled past Iron Bridge, just because I wanted to see it. Then over to this Trig. Easy enough to find but had to go through a field of beans for final bit. Can hear the electric cracking. Didnt hang about. Looks like rain.

Easy access from Red Lane through a gap in the edge. Pillar set in an unploughed area of a crop field. Walked carefully along tractor tracks in between the crop to prevent damage.

Parked in Red Lane. There are two locations some 100m up the lane. One you can reverse into and the second a few 10s of metres further on a muddy pull over. Squeeze through a gap, in the hedge in the corner of the field, adjacent and walk up the field from the corner to a dateless gap. The pillar is visible on the skyline directly under the elect transmission lines. Field was muddy and not planted up or the crop hadn't germinated. Good views all around. retraced steps and away to Ironbridge to buy Christmas pork pies from the World famous Uleys Pork Pie Shop.

Parked in the wide field entrance down Red Lane and headed up. Followed tramlines through a heavy crop of wheat which took me to within 12 feet of the pillar. Extensive views of more wheat ready for combining.

Eagerly swung leg over cycle in Telford, pushed down hard on pedal and came to abrupt halt to the grinding and mangling sound of metal. 15 minutes with adjustable and screwdriver I'd removed the rear derailier from the wheel and I was on my way. Not the best of starts! Trig easily accessed from the N via lane and grassy field margins. Convenient tractor lines through shoots of crop in field. Very good views.

Drove along Red Lane parking at field boundary junction NE of trig. 250m walk to pillar, found in muddy arable field beneath noisy, crackling HV power lines. A vestige of its once white paint job remains; cap missing, composite plug replacement; LHD side sight hole open. Some good views.

Similar access as Glaslyn. If you park on RedLane on the verge just under the pylons, there is a convienent hole/fence to access the field. The field crop was high today but access to the pillar was easy via tractor tracks. Quite good views.

I walked up from the River Severn at Coalport along a thin yellow road that was a bit busier than I would have liked. I turned left onto the track to Swinbatch, and then accessed the trig pillar via a gap in the hedge and the field boundary. It was hard to concentrate on the view with the sound of pylons fizzling overhead. I returned back the same way and narrowly missed being caught out by somebody driving up the track.

First visit a couple of years back thwarted by crops. Success this time. Convenient gap in hedge from track, one field edge, through access into next hedge and across young crop. Views out across Severn Valley, Wrekin and the Clees.

Visited during a south Telford walk from Town Centre-Coalport-Ironbridge-Coalbrookdale-Dawley. Just to prove you don't always get lost in Telford.

Parked at the entrance to a track and found an easy gap in the hedge, then followed the field boundary to the pillar. It's quite white painted, with an asphalt plug replacement. E sighthole open, others closed. In the centre of an arable field of fodder crops of some kind, right underneath the overhead power lines. Good views eastwards towards Wolverhampton, NW to Wrekin [and you can also see the exhaust chimney from the Ironbridge power station, if that's what turns you on...].

In an unattractive field in Broseley, right under some power lines. The pillar itself seems in good condition, still with a fair amount of white paint on, but I didn't check too carefully, as the sky was attacking me with water.
