Stuck Lockshield Valve on radiator

We had a new boiler in Summer 2018 and the system was power flushed. The radiator in the living room is slightly warm at the top only. No air in radiator. I've checked the TRV and it's not jammed. We have had the radiator for 14 years. The pipe that leads to the lockshield valve is warm. I've tried all types of spanners/pliers but have been unable to open the valve. Access is not good as the lockshield valve end is about three inches from the wall. I've looked at lots of videos that show how to turn the lockshield valve on or off. It's a square spindle on the lockshield valve. It's a 2m long radiator. Is there anything I can do to fix this.?
