Trig right next to carpark and glacial boulder. Sparse trees around; not to hard to find! (Mind you I did have help :P)

Ninth and last pillar of day on a circular half day's cycle tour from Rugeley. Stony and difficult path from the east across the Chase from The Butts.

Visited whilst on a geocaching circular walk around the Chase. Nice views from the trig, which is in good condition. Interesting boulder nearby too.

Used to love not far from the Chase but don't ever remember coming to this trig. Visited with the family on a lovely if somewhat windy day.

A lovely day out on Cannock Chase, trig a very quick find, a few feet away from the road / parking place. Plug replaced with an asphalt bung. Good but hazy views all around.

Nice day for a walk on the Chase.

Ive driven past this one hundreds of times in the past as I lived 5 miles down the road for over 20 years and spent many many happy hours wandering across the Chase. Its GREAT to be back in the area and getting a few of the trigs logged :)
26th Aug 2010 15:41 by Sven
...27 minute walk across Sherbrook Valley to Brocton Field and the glacial erratic boulder from The Butts. Last of six trigs for the day and a good day it has been. Stopped raining as I arrived at first and started to rain again as I arrived back at the car. I thought I'd better walk to at least one trig point during the circuit. AEH39 you have some catching up to do!!! Pity about the wilful damage to the info plates on the boulder - chavs!

Did not realise what the nearby boulder was till I read Keiths log. Someone has nicked the brass off the top of it. Must be the credit crunch. My first visit to the Chase. Bagged this one and then and the other one to the east and did some caching too. Cold day with light snow showers but much better than being inside.

I was part way through caching, waiting for some muggles to disappear and was staring at this white pillar for some minutes when I finally twigged what it was.

Found this one on a caching session in the chase. lovely day, excellent weather. We had to wait a while with taking a photo of the Trig, though, as a mob of hikers had decided to rest on and around it. Deadeye & Shrimphead

Within the Cannock Chase country park, near a glacial boulder display. Stone plug. OK condition. Public (It was very clever of the glacier to leave the boulder perched up like that!) But if the original number was S1975, then what of Hillend in Square SO, which has that number??

Pleasant walk around the chase with the pillar halfway round,nice views v popular place .

The last pillar for the day - still got two caches to find and by now it was raining. This pillar is by the glacial boulder and its carpark. Quite white painted. Asphalt plug replacement. N sighthole open, others closed. Concrete base exposed by up to 12" all round. Good views from here over the Chase as I know from earlier visits but today it was very murky.
24th Mar 2005 11:45 by CURRYSCRIM
Walked from Seven Springs to find this one. To date, this is my only trig point with a 5 digit number. Good views over the Chase.

Middle of the Chase, near an glacial erratic. Looking a bit battered, has a rather high number for these parts. Easy access, a drive up. I wonder if the high number signifies that this pillar was a replacement for The Butts, across the valley, as this point was over planted with conifers. This is not the case.. The pillar here is a rebuild.. The original pillar's number was 1975 - been looking for 1975 near Stafford :-) )
