Hill? Flat as a pancake.carole engel19/04/2019
7th hill of 8 on a 26.9km route from Rugeley to Hednesford station, climbing Stile Cop, Upper Cliff, Rawnsley Hills, Castle Ring, Wimblebury Hill and Hednesford Hills, descending on good paths to reach Rawnsley Road then the long trek up Bradbury Lane. This has to be a contender for one of the most inderterminate tops. I gave this a good go however, recording 232m @ SJ 98820 14522 and SJ 98827 14530. Water tower recorded lower. Gap in fence to Radio tower @ SJ 98811 14545, inside 231m @ SJ 98799 14560. Garmin log inspected and 232m recorded @ SJ98811 14553/4 and SJ98827 14530 then crossing field/paddock @ SJ98637/8 14663/4. I followed forest ride to bridleway then fp into the Dogintree estatem heading for Littleton Colliery...Dazingdale25/11/2018
Wandered about in the flat wooded area. Continued to the German war cemetery which seemed a more worthwhile activity.clivevilla20/10/2018
Hednesford - Littleton Colliery - Badger's Hills - Rawnsley Hills - Upper Cliff - Stile Cop - Castle Ring - Wimblebury Hill - Hednesford Hills - Hednesford.Mark Jackson22/09/2018
HP not clear but my best guess is S of the radio tower and E of Broadhurst Green road. With Evie.RoguePulsar07/09/2018
Parked in layby opposite water tower and wandered into the pines towards the comms tower. High point seemed somewhere in a direct line between the two.Wheelsy17/03/2018
Somewhere in the woodsColin Crawford05/01/2018
We walked from Littleton Colliery bing. There is a flattish area with several aerials, a large comms tower and a water tower. We decided the HP was in pines opposite Pye Green water tower.Denise 25/10/2017
From Littleton Colliery, Large levellish forested summit area with prominent concrete comms. tower and slightly less prominent water tower. The natural high point between the two.RichardM25/10/2017
Stile Cop - Upper Cliffe - Rawnsley Hills - Wimblebury Hill - Badger's Hills - Littleton Colliery. 12mile linear route. This summit out and back from the south. Roadside verges an uncomfortable experience, traffic unforgiving.Moorponder24/07/2017
Take your pick for the definitive high point. Came up past the water tower then up past the big tower, one or two bumps looked marginally higher. Final tump of 7 today. Legs well and truly badgered.stig_nest13/03/2017
From layby area S of tower seems highest.rhalstead12/03/2017
Parked in layby, Brindley Road SJ 98914 14463. Went to banking at edge of wood 10m South of layby opposite Pye Green tower. Also visited horsey field and wood adjacent to horsey field.David Evans04/03/2017
Parked near large communication tower then wandered through the woods towards Pye Green water tower to high point then back a different way.Dugswell201/03/2017
Sought out highest point after nearby orienteering event. Seemed to be south east of the GPO tower.JohnW05/02/2017
As for chrisbien.arranc04/02/2017
Had a good wander around area, banking at edge of wood 10m S of layby opposite Pye Green tower on Brindley Rd seemed as high as anywhere in the woodland. (Staffordshire Water's Pye Green 1934 tower, not to be confused with much higher radio tower on other side of wood).Aye Jimmy09/10/2016
Highest point seemed to be SE of the mast in the trees.chrisbien06/10/2016
From radio mast through woods. Indeterminate.Campbell Singer11/07/2016
Walked up a path from by the two masts, then though the trees to where my gps was pointing.Alancache04/02/2016

With Cabe, summit could be either side of the road.simon and co07/11/2015
HP close to Pye Green water tower.Adrian10/05/2015
Milford to Hednesford. Scrubby woodland just off Brindley Road, SE of tower, seemed most likely HP if you discount 'mounds' in woodland to W of stables.Smudge21/02/2015
Highest point appear to be road just S of tower, or halfway across horse field.RHW21/03/2014
Quick stop on way to the Chase, hard to tell exact high spot, ground near tower looks just as high, horsey types a bit sus of you strolling cross the fields. at least it was qiute warm & dry.apricorum29/10/2013
