Rushed breakfast to catch 8.45 train from Whitby to Glaisdale Station. Walked up Glaisdale itself on very wet muddy footpaths. The paths climbing on to the moor were very indistinct. Light covering of snow on road. A good hard surfaced track East across Egton High Moor. The nearest point to turn off South across the moor is marked ominously as "Duckponds Peat Bog" but the ground was solid and easy to cross. Pillar not in view until you are close by. Continued on East to Beck Hole and then Grosmont for the return train.

I had tried to find this pillar last year without success. On that occasion I had climbed across two fields from the lane to the South. This time I climbed to the A31 from Ash Green and braved the main road traffic for the 1km Eastbound (not too bad). At the reservoir there was a level, crash barrier free, crossing with care and patience. The road side hedge is now more of a thin wood. I walked both sides twice for some distance before finally catching sight of the pillar well concealed in the middle. I was able to reach it by pushing a few branches aside and nearly crawling in from the field side. Cycling out was easier as there is a narrow tarred pavement beside the Westbound carriageway back to the Ash Green turn, which remarkably is an allowed right-hand turn for motor vehicles. For future visitors: there are a couple of unofficial gravel laybys near the A31 junction on the road from Ash Green then cross A31 and walk pavement, or there seemed to be a footpath up from the end of the cul-de-sac road from Seale. Alongside a length of roadside crash barrier there is a wire stayed telephone pole with an easy gap into the adjacent field. Turn right and through a vehicle gap in the hedge running up the hill to the road. From the far side of this hedge it is about 80 paces to the pillar on your right.

Headed back downhill from tower ruin and after about 30 feet head right where there are fewer trees, pass some dead branches on ground, and hopefully you'll find it! Having just visited two pillars with empty recesses on the FB side, this one contains some sort of moulding. My last pillar within a 100km radius of home. My penultimate Shropshire pillar.

An enjoyable challenge to reach/find! Left lane near where the England/Wales crosses it. Headed North across two sheep occupied fields and stepped over the wire fence into the wood. The undergrowth manageable. Came across two unoccupied caravans from where a recently bulldozed logging track made walking easier. Turned off through partially felled area making for obvious higher ground and found the pillar surprisingly easily. The second pillar of the day with a large recess above the FB. The FB side does not initially taper toward the top as usual giving a very distorted aspect.

I didn't think I'd reach this, the third planned pillar of the day. After the morning two pillars I found the chain on my bike had numerous cracks in the links. A kindly gamekeeper offered a lift from near Hawnby back into Helmsley. A flat road to Pickering was carefully ridden to reach the nearest bike shop. Thankfully, they were able to supply me with a new set of sprockets, chain and one chain ring and the tools to fit them. It not only saved the day, but the whole few days away! Back to Kirbymoorside through Gillamoor and on to the stoney road that climbs on to the moors and very close to the pillar. After the earlier problems the discomfort of the rough steep track was minor! Pillar sits on one of many mine waste heaps. Happy to pause for some time and enjoy the panorama of the moors.

This is (was) the closest un-visited pillar to home by a considerable margin. I'd read the previous logs, and knew that my friend "What's the Point" had been successful. Having stayed last night at Hathersage, cycled through Sheffield, the obvious onward route to Rotherham and Doncaster passed Templeborough and I thought I could afford the time to have look and was equipped with a map print. Turned off A6178 on to lane signed "closed to through traffic 2007" opposite Parcelforce depot. Crossed yellow railed bridge and tracked perimeter fence to right. Access gained and ducked under and pushed aside lower twigs and branches of trees and a few minutes searching brought success.

A last minute decision to have a few days away from home walking. I caught the train to Skipton and I was soon climbing a very water logged field on a footpath North from near the castle. Across the A56 and a golf course to a lane to turn West. Dark clouds were heading my way as I set off up the track toward Sharp Haw summit and there was soon a sharp shower. I could spot the neighbouring pillar to the East on Crookrise Crag. Followed ROWs on to Cracoe to catch the bus to Kettlewell.

The second moved and recently re-discovered pillar of the day, having earlier been to Lowans Hill at Redditch. In between a late and much needed lunch stop at a café in Feckenham was very welcome. The lane from the West up to Lower Cowsden Farm is tarred, and after was today cyclable to the footpath. From the opposite way and into the field at the footpath was very muddy from machinery moving manure to a large pile. I had thought of bringing boots anticipating muddy conditions, but decided to risk doing without the weight and volume penalty on the bike. Just managed to pick a dryish and least muddy route to the pillar in my cycling shoes. Pillar easily found. Went on by Pershore and Evesham to stay at Stratford YHA and record my second 100 mile ride of the year.

At last, back out trigging. A long pause since the last in early November. Having visited all the extant pillars in a large area of Central England it has become harder to reach anything new. This became by far the closest to home when it was found at its new site. Followed a very familiar way out from home to the East of Birmingham, before swinging more Westward through Knowle, Hockley Heath and Beoley. Logged just over 50 miles. Easily found and reached with directions on this site.

Fortified by a pint of beer and sandwiches and chips at the New Inn at Cropton, this was the pillar finale of a 6 day trip to Yorks and Durham. Used public roads to Stape at SE788935. What are shown on the OS 1:50,000 map as tracks through the forest are more un-tarred roads, even and pothole free, though a little gravelly. They are signed as permitted use for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Went West to High Muffles and turned North. The pillar is in open view as the surrounding trees have been felled. An excavator was removing the stumps leaving piles of earth. The area around the pillar remains surrounded by grass and would not appear to be under threat.

Chose to leave the bike just after the start of the steep descent North to Danby and follow the obvious path North along the scarp edge. The adjacent standing stone (with good benchmark) is obvious from a distance, but the pillar although only slightly shorter only comes into view near to. Although sunny the strong SE wind was cold.

Bagged the intended 3 morning pillars, then the 3 afternoon possibles, and reached this as my 7th of the day on a ride from Langdon Beck YHA (near High Force Waterfall) to Helmsley YHA. Just managed to pedal all the way up from Carlton using bottom gear and out of the saddle. A short section of track before a paved path all the way to the summit. Sadly, the day has remained overcast and grey so only the outlook was not at its best. I could make out the industrial areas around Tees Mouth, but not as far as the Pennines. However, sat for a while at the top enjoying what could be seen and replenishing the calories with a big Danish pastry!

Was told that it was originally in a hedge line adjacent to an ash tree. The former was removed to aid machinery use. Later the tree was badly damaged in a storm and disturbed the pillar, so both were removed. Prompted by the increased interest, he is thinking of re-erecting the pillar somewhere accessible close to the road.

Having just visited Knitting Row pillar, decided to start on ROW shown on map starting nearly at T-junction to West at SD423429. Promising grassy field access track, but peters out into deep weeds. Hopped over fence to North and waded through edge of wheat field. Over two adjacent wire fences Eastward and dilapidated stile South, then better going over recently mown field. A least it was dry underfoot unlike previous visitors. Crossing into next field to East was complicated by steep bank, deep ditch,nettles grasping briars. Pillar in view in field to my left. Good condition but with ground level exposing foundations. Looked easier to return by heading due North to road. Ha ha! Another very steep bank down covered in brambles etc barred progress to next field and gate to road. Back tracked to corner and managed to beat my way through to field to West, then eventually to road. Bare legs looked like I'd been attacked by an angry cat! Although a longer route, it would seem to be easier for future visitors to try the good looking track North from Ratten Row. Cycling on to Garstang the pillar is in view from the road.

After a run of pillars out on open hilltops this was challenging! The signed footpath from the A4079 was seriously overgrown at the start and I started out from a field gate two houses to the West. Into a field being grazed by sheep, but felt a 45 degree slope! One fence to step over and followed the right hand side of the hedge at edge of crop. I thought it would be very difficult to spot in this overgrown hedge, but just before the remains of a rail goods wagon it is in view with the FB facing. Just a few huge nettles to crush for access.

I was looking for a quiet spot to leave the bike in Greenfield when a resident invited me to leave it in their garden. Changed into walking boots and socks, but otherwise cycling gear. Up footpaths and out on to open moor, passing the War Memorial. Well worn path North to Trig. An overcast, cool and windy day. No obvious path away to SE, so ad hoc route across moor. Reached A635 at milestone and walked along to join footpath for Black Hill.

Great, too, to finally tick off this pillar, being the last for many miles around. Found a man outside Leyfield Farm to ask permission to visit, which was cheerfully given. A steep, but straight forward, grassy climb to summit, with pillar amongst stand of beech trees planted for the millennium. A grey misty day so the views out were minimal.

Having seen a query on the survival of this pillar on the forum, I decided that a re-visit to check on it would be the destination for the day's cycle ride. Having lunched in the café in Abbey Park, I approached up the hill from near the Great Central Railway's Leicester North Station. The pillar is just the other side of the hedge, reasonably in view with the FB facing and visible. However, there is a recently constructed bank, higher than the pillar, and partly enveloping it.Sited as map, beyond sharp right bend and bank across lane end on left before factory.There is a deep ditch between road and hedge, but no standing water in it today.

A good tail wind blew me through the lanes to Ashbourne, then the Tissington Trail to Parsley Hay, Monyash, Taddington, Tideswell, Bradwell, Bamford and up the lane alongside the Derwent Dams. Arrived at the pack horse bridge with 60 miles done and had lunch. A lovely sunny day and lots of folk out and about. Left the bike and walked up Cut Gate standing aside for several descending mountain bikers. Turned right and across moor to Margery Hill. Dry enough, with care, to keep feet dry in cycling shoes.

However, I was feeling better on an afternoon ride yesterday after a two day rest and decided to get away for a night before voluntary work on Saturday. A westward pedal saw me at a nice garden centre tea room at Ellerdine for lunch, and perusing the map, I decided a visit here was possible, before a more SE ride to near Bishop's Castle.

However, a second group came toward me and lady driver of the first vehicle assured me there was no shooting taking place and was agreeable to me walking up to find the pillar (no idea if she had right to give permission!). I had looked at website previously on this and OS 1:25,000. Took right hand fork up hill and immediately after concrete/brick walls turned left following upper edge of quarry/cliff edge. Soon saw a concrete fence post off to right. You then need to head diagonally left to a 2nd post, which is the one photographed by Father Ted, and the pillar is a short way into the nearby evergreen bushes.

Very soon turn left and downhill on another narrow footpath with a few log steps - you will reach a gate into a garden in V of boundary fences. Turn back and the pillar is along the boundary to your left heavily covered in undergrowth. Really satisying to find!

Done on a day ride from home. Although the route out to Meriden was a very familiar one I hadn't been that way since May.Onward by Knowle and the NT's Packwood House. A much colder start to the day of late and meriting leg warmers and cycle mitts, but bright and sunny. Aiming to visit the two closest pillars to home yet to be ticked off. Large electric gates prevented access on drive to Beaudesert Farm. A section of post and rail fence gave easy access to the field to the East and board fences, building and hedges maintain privacy of house and their view of me. At the back there is a wire fence and a line of bushes as a hedge and it is just possible to view the white pillar on an area of grass by bending and looking between the bushes stems about 10 yards away.Lane drops very sharply to West.

Having completed my normal 3 day week, I thought I'd celebrate my birthday a day late with a visit to the nearest pillar not yet ticked off. Lunched in Bingham. Found you can now reach Car Colston without going on A46 and crossed it at Flintham flover. Houses on other side signed as "Coneygreen Spinney". Turned right by sign through open gate onto single track road to two houses and former farm buildings. Well used track thereafter, firstly crushed rock, then old concrete and finally short grass alongside airfield perimeter. At first gate reached (padlocked) step over barriers in hedge to right and follow hedge line to prominent dead tree - the pillar is just beyond. Now not as pictured earlier in the year by "What's the point" but effectively covered over by briars and other vegetation. For the cyclist leaving there is a basic tarred farm road, designated as a bridleway, running alongside the A46 to reach Kneeton to the West.

Easy to find, slightly raised above the surrounds on the embankment carrying the road, but leaning. Surprisingly wide views despite low flat surrounds. Thankfully my optimism was rewarded and, after ducking under a locked barrier, the track marked on the OS map was better than some cycleways I've been on and led South to another cul-se-sac road and into Crowle, saving a lot of mileage.

They showed me pillar further round back of houses tucked in corner of fences. Probably could be reached behind house called "Manor Farm" which is currently being renovated. Turned out to be 11th and last visit of day as I couldn't find the last intended pillar! UPDATE 14/7/2014 In view of Amanda's action. I certainly wouldn't have wandered indiscriminately around people's property. I needed some indication of where to ask. The lads playing outside were readily there to ask. Perhaps, I should have asked permission of an adult, but they did volunteer and take me to the pillar.

At first looked unlikely due to houses lining the road, but spotted a grassy track leading off the road by two bungalows that were so overgrown that the surrounding vegetation has reached the chimneys! A gate leads into a field divided into sections for ponies, but without entering you can look to the right and clearly see the pillar. There is a narrow rough stretch of land between the garden fences and a barbed wire fence to the ponies' field - about 15 yards to walk. pillar in excellent condition, not lost in vegetation.

Not shown on OS 1:50,000. but noted on OS website. Checked on this Website as present and looked at Peregrinus's notes. Rode up and down road trying to decide which trees he was referring to. Occupants just leaving bungalow that seemed most likely. The lady said that there had been a pillar but that it had been removed. Let them drive off while having a drink and studying map for onward route wondering whether to nose round in their absence. Saw man exit next house along pushing steel I-beam on trolley and made enquiries of him. "Yes it's just across that ground in hedge"! Look for large gates with "Peacehaven" in large metal letters. there is a track to fields immediately adjacent and a few feet along this are two low metal gates on the right. Cross these and straight across the rough ground beyond and the pillar is just hiding in the cypresses beyond your side of the fence!

direct approach from the road is through a scrapyard and steelwork dealer. However, further west there's a new concrete farm road and bearing right on further roads brings you to a back way to the scrap yard and directly beside the pillar. The operator didn't object to my visit on explaining.

It wasn't pre planned to make this my 2000th pillar, but what a splendid place to reach this number. Started on April 25th 2007, so just shy of six years taken. Left bike padlocked to lamppost to SE and a short walk uphill. A westward spur of the Epping Forest ridge with some beautiful trees. Views out South over central London. Although the morning sunshine now replaced by overcast grey, various of the London towers and the Eye were visible. A couple walking their dog were happy to take a picture of me to record the moment - I'll try and get a friend to upload to this site!

With it now being one of the closest to home still outstanding, I've attempted to visit but not found anyone at home. This time the owner was at home with her daughter and lovely grandchild.

Good to be back on the trigging trail again and cycling away from home after several weeks out due to injury in an accident. Spoke to one house resident on way up lane. He thought it would be OK to visit when I explained my objective, although not his land, and he knew what I was searching for. The pillar took some searching for. It is alongside the track about 60 paces from the corner of the wood. It is almost at 90 degrees to the track with the top almost buried so it is very hard to spot through the vegetation. There are some views West across the Trent Valley, but areas of woodland block any in other directions.Besides two private signs passed on the way up, a gate had been shut across the acess with an even larger sign on heading back. However, a tractor and trailer was coming the other way and I received a friendly wave for opening it for him.

Reaching the quarry edge it looked steep and heavily overgrown. However, the tree by the obvious high point has shaded out much of any undergrowth. The surface below was steep and stony but firm and descent was fairly easy if care taken. The pillar is soon clearly visible as you descend, although partly buried on the slope. No sign of any rubbish dumped as reported by a previous visitor.

One of the very few left to visit on this OS map. Crossed the A1 from the Retford direction over the new flyover. I don't think I've been there since my cycle time trial days in the 80s when the then roundabout was a turn on several TT courses. Past West Markham church and continued beyond tarmac on to easily ridden stone surfaced road. At sweeping right hand bend there are two field accesses into adjacent fields with the hedge rising to the ridge. Up machinery tracks in barley field to right of hedge and ducked through gap in hedge at top of field. Pillar is only a short distance beyond a little distance out into field. Although not at a very high point there are wide views, and this seemed a very clear day.

Road to near summit is signed as such of Cleobury Mortimer road at Angel Bank. Second chance of the weekend to play at Bradley Wiggins on the two mile climb!Panorama somewhat shortened by greyness although warm sunny day.

Being in the area and having read of its reported loss I decided to re-visit. A new steel I-beam has been put in place to hang the gate and tapes splay out to the A5 hedges one passing over the former site. Possibly they are going to widen the narrow entrance. The pillar foundation appears to be still in place and two layers of bricks have been used to fill up to ground level. Lack of new vegetation suggests this is recent. I went down the drive with the intention of enquiring about the pillar, but found it sat upright and intact by this drive just before the buildings and adjacent to a mobile home. There is a shallow inwardly sloping base below the former ground level of the pillar.

Wasn't sure of finding/access from OS map. However, I was cycling past the end of the road on the A335 and so I thought it worth a look. It is visible at the edge of the school fields but not readily accessible due to very high fence. I think an enquiry on a schoolday would be neccessary to gain access.

If you turn into the housing development to the North there is then a further turn to a pair of houses and the pillar can be easily viewed over the wall about 30 feet away, close to the security fence.

I tried to find it at its original site (as marked on recent OS map) a couple of years ago. Now having started using this website, I've spotted its discovery at its new location. No problem locating and cycling up private road to view. I would prefer it to be in situ, but its new use looks good and is preferable to total destruction.

Being one of the closest to home, I thought it was about time I ticked this off. I think I've been detered by the distance from legitimate access and the proximity of two farm houses. Got home from work, changed clothes, ate a banana and dried fruit and cycled off and a sunny but windy late afternoon. I asked for permission to cross the fields at Quee Tree Farm from a lady there. She went to ask someone (husband/farmer?) inside. She returned to say it was OK as long as all the gates were shut. Continued on past the farmhouse through four gates,and turned right at the end of third field over fence, then a dog leg left through further gate to pillar. There is no obvious high spot and any views are obscured by large hedges and trees on three sides. On the fourth side you can see a long way - the remaining power station cooling towers at Willington and on to Radcliffe-on-Soar Power Station. Back at the road you can see Cannock Chase and the comms tower there. The ground was like concrete, in the area that had been deep mud care had to be taken not to twist an ankle.

Easy to find, and first of three to visit up this hill. This is the 2nd most damaged pillar I've visited, it must have had a sustained sledge hammer attack. No FB or spider.

Cycled up drive to Golf Club. I'm not sure if it was an official or a player I spoke to, but he knew what I was after, but couldn't offer easy directions. He did say there was a public footpath across the course. Retraced up drive and found that there is a public footpath sign, similar to a street name, by the entrance, but nothing pointing anywhere onto the course. Whether it was Sunday afternoon, threatened bad weather or the Open Championship on TV, there were no players at this end of the course as I found my own way to the pillar using the power lines as a guide. Not much to see as many trees line the fairways.

Picking off a few pillars I've missed. Left bike by telephone box in village and set off along adjacent public footpath. At far end of rape crop, turned right off path and followed hedge to pillar. In corner of following field. Not sure if it is wheat or poppies the farmer is growing! Used the usual tractor tracks for the last few yards.

Seems I took a different route from previous visitors. Set off from road through gate by New Whitelow Farm, which doesn't seem to be a working farm any longer. The field had recently been mown, and a further gate gave access to the pillar.

Easy enough to find and view, but having been provided with equipment, trimmed back some of the hedge for future visitors to more readily take photos.

Nearly finished in the first hour as, in climbing the gate from the field with the footpath to that with the pillar, a large sharp hawthorn twig, the size of a 3 inch nail, pierced the sole of my shoe and passed between my big toe and the next!

Picked the existence of this one up from the website. It was very difficult to spot even with info from website, deep in hedge in field corner, major surgery would be required for a close approach.

The "byway" from the nearby lane has recently been rebuilt with a crushed stone surface, so I was able to cycle all the way to the pillar. Easily found.

The current dry weather gives a good cycling surface to reach this one. Overshot the pillar on the first pass, but easily spotted it coming back with the difference in the angle of sunlight.

In a previous look for access from the cul-de-sac side, I'd met a neighbour who looked after the property where the pillar is sited. He was on his way out but gave me a 'phone contact to arrange this visit. Pillar is concealed by a lone fence panel from the garden side, but you can see over and around edges.
