TP6379 - The Edge

East access from the road between Stoney Stretton and Edge, someone has even prepared an area for 1 - 2 cars to park up on the corner of the road with access to the field – you can see the pillar from here.

The pillar stands next to a hedge separating grass fields in farmland to the west of Shrewsbury. It has FB S4744 and the spider is plugged by a metal cap with shallow lettering. The field to the north of the trig was reached through the hedge from the bend in the minor road to the east. The pillar was accessed through the hedge near the trig. The site looks across a landscape of gently undulating farmland. The Breidden Hills rise up on the skyline in the north-west and Stiperstones, Corndon Hill and Bromlow Callow in the south.

Almost invisible in the hedge. Had to clear away brambles and nettles. Views only to the south. Best to access via a gap in the hedge to the NE of the Pillar at a slight bend in the road from Stoney Stretton or Edge - it will allow parking too. Access then along field edge to another slight gap, as pillar is on S side of hedge, over a low electric fence. It would be nice to listen to some guitar work from U2 as you tick this one off. Missed Chingwakabungya by six days.

Walked from Pontesbury along the lanes and approached from the NW. Found the trig fine, but it's very much in the hedge, and nearer the south side of the hedge.

A frosty and foggy morning. Bagged on my way to climb some Shropshire hills and to get abouve the fog. This was a good way to start the day. An easy bag. From NW via gate - parked in gate entrance as it looked unlikly that farmer would want to gain access for a few months judging by young crop.

Approached via field gate 200m to NW of pillar, then through hedge gap to next field. In the hedge, good condition, original plug. Private

Approached from the east and spotted the pillar easily [at this time of year] from the lane. Went to park on the verge and almost sank into the mud so beat a hasty retreat! Got into the field at the gate to the NW and then had to negotiate a quagmire as there had been heavy rain and the field between the lane and the pillar is now ploughed and the winter cereal crops about 4" high. It's in a hedgeline and all intact - plug with slightly-indented letters. N sighthole open, others closed. Traces of paint visible. Good views W towards Welshpool and Rodney's Pillar and some views E towards Shrewsbury.

Again too keen on parking this time in a gate and had to follow a tractor line through the wheat. Then hopped over the now broken wooden fence to the west of the trig for access into the next field.

We parked on a bit of a bend between Stoney Stretton and Edge from where the trig is visible. This pillar is a lot different from the other 'The Edge' in the Dark Peak. I prefer the latter. Plug with indented lettering.
