(389) Drove down to Coleby Lodge Farm to ask about visiting the Pillar, and permission was freely given. Tackled this one from the gap in the hedge on the A15, and it was then a short walk to the trig. The Pillar has definitely taken a good bash from something meaty. Most likely a tractor mounted hedge flail, but apart from that, everything else is good.

From there it is a 10 minute walk to the pillar, that first takes you passed a small wooded area and cottage, and then out into open fields. Slightly damaged, though nothing too major - a few chips, and some barely noticeable hairline cracks. But a good one to bag, and a enjoyable walk.

(362) Finding somewhere to park close to the trig was difficult today, so eventually had to settle for a spot next to the Village Hall, which meant getting there and back involved a decent walk. I also took the opportunity to call in at Field House Farm and then Carr-Dyke Farm to ask about permission to visit the pillar. The landowner wasn't about, but both neighbours said it wouldn't be a problem. It's then another good walk following the hedge line to the pillar. And as the hedge is pretty solid throughout, it's worth making sure that you have picked the right field side to walk down in order to view the FB. Previous logs certainly helped out there. A few hairline cracks are visible but nothing too major. I had thought this one would be difficult to bag, but all in all, it passed off well.

(317) Whilst the weather is keeping relatively fine, and to mix things up a bit, I drew up a list that included trig points in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, as well as in my main focus of Lincolnshire. Parked up just inside Nottinghamshire at the Trent Port restaurant, and walked the short journey down the PRoW to the location. Easily found the right spot thanks to previous logs, and the actual trig itself is still largely uncovered.

(316) I was initially looking for this in completely the wrong area, so all told, this trig took a bit longer than expected. The Crown Inn - which having closed down is now In the process of being redeveloped - marks the start of the PROW, so followed that down passed the houses until it turns into a field pathway. As others have noted, the church only becomes visible at the last moment, thanks to an opening which leads you into the graveyard. Which is well maintained, even if the church itself isn't.

(308) The route from the West is closer to the pillar, but parking options looked better inside East Keal itself, so tackled this trig from there. Found a handy spot on the A16 at the War Memorial. The PROW runs alongside this. Somebody was driving a hulking bit of machinery up and down the final field that needed to be crossed, but it was still so incredibly misty, I could hear them better than I could see them. Pondering as to whether It would be best to somehow catch their attention before moving across the field, they then disappeared into the gloom and didn't return, So with the field to myself, I then made the short trip off the ROW to the pillar. Spotted easily enough, though the top isn't too visible due to hedge encroachment, but all else looked in good order.

(303) I've been looking forward to this one, but it all ended up being a bit frustrating, to say the least. Parked up down Dryden Road, and walked across Manor Park until I was in the approximate location, and then the hunt began. But after much probing, rechecking, and head scratching, in the end I had to concede defeat. Some locals did come over to enquire what I was up to, and once explained, they went on their merry way. Most likely thinking what a strange hobby, and I'm not certain I'd disagree ;-) So in the end this was frustrating as I was probably within inches of it, if not stood right on it at times. And then the cherry on the top of the cake was that I somehow managed to break the glass lens covering the camera on my phone. I could still use the camera, but the focus was pretty much shot. Bah! I wonder if today's date played a part in any of this... I've still got plenty of Scunthorpe area trigs to bag, so a revisited will need to be arranged for this one.

Parked up next to St Edith's church (with cut BM) and walked the short journey down to Grange Farm. There I met Marcus (Sorry for interrupting your breakfast!) who phoned the gamekeeper to see if a visit would be possible. Initially it didn't sound promising - no walking to the site - but the good news was that I could be driven there. So once breakfast was finished, off we went. It's quite some distance, and over muddy terrain, from the farm to the pillar, so was very glad of the lift. On the way I learned all about the farm and its history, and I in turn explained the purpose of the pillar, and its use by the Ordnance Survey. And talking about the pillar, I was informed that this was originally another one of Lincolnshire's hedge bound pillars, but the hedge is now long gone. After taking photographs I was then driven back to my car. There I met the farm manager who told me all about the nearby Church. In regards to people visiting, they are more than happy to accommodate those of us who share this hobby, but did ask if I could let folks know that March to the end of September/start of October, would be best for them. So a big thank you to the guys at the farm, and especially to Marcus who drove me there and back.

(243) I've been hoping to bag this Pillar for some time now, but as it's situated in the middle of a large wheat field, getting close had proved impossible. In fact, I couldn't even see it from the road. Travelling out this evening, on the assumption that the field would have been harvested by now, revealed that that was indeed the case. Result! And for a double bonus, I met two chaps at the Ivy House farm, who said it would be ok to visit the Pillar. It's about a 6 minute walk to the trig, and thanks to the recent rain, an incredibly muddy walk as well. Pillar looks very good, with fine views in all directions.

He said despite working here for a good few years, he'd never seen the pillar in question before. At that point the heavens opened, so I quickly retired to my car to wait it out, and to double check I was actually in the right place. Deciding to quickly check the hedge before moving on, revealed that I was indeed in the right place. Access, though not totally easy, was surprisingly straight forward. I had imagined, reading previous logs, that this one would be difficult. And once you get closer to the pillar, there is more room to manoeuvre. If a relatively clear route to this pillar is down to a member on here, then thank you. As to the Pillar, then all appears good.

Think I could still see Dusty's tracks from the previous week, so followed those the best I could. I greatly suspect no-one else outside of our little hobby would even contemplate walking this path. But there is something satisfying about ticking off an difficult trig. The pillar itself, and the nettles do clear as you get nearer to it, looks very good. So worth it in the end.

(56) Meant to do this one the other day when visiting the pillar at Acre, but it had completely slipped my mind until I was half way home. Made amends today. Even though looking at previous logs had narrowed it's location down, this one still took some finding. But my persistence, and trowel work, paid off.

(54) Drove up to Acre House to ask for permission to visit this pillar, which the land owner readily gave. He also pointed out the various routes I could take to get to the pillar, and I opted for the quickest and easiest. A very pleasant chap, who is happy to accommodate those who have an interest in this hobby, and we must have chatted for a good hour all told. So 'ask first' is definitely the correct way to go for this trig. The pillar itself is a distinctive looking one, with its off centre spider and non original plug. And the 'alien golf ball' behind it adds to the charm. Being the county top for Lincolnshire the views are pretty darn good. I picked the perfect evening for it really.

(53) Parked up opposite St Andrew's church in Irby upon Humber, and crossed over the A46 to the R.O.W on the other side. Followed that through some glorious countryside; Rolling hills and fields, chalk cliffs, cows grazing, rabbits and pheasants aplenty, and 5 or 6 deers running through the woods, all added to the enjoyment. Seems to be a very popular route as dog walkers, mountain bikers, and joggers passed me at regular intervals. Takes a good 30/40 minutes to get to the pillar, which is visible just about as soon as you leave Irby Dales Wood behind you. Due in no small part to the pillar being fully painted white. The trig looks well maintained and cared for. The hedge around it has been shaped so as not to enclose it. So, a fantastic walk, and a good looking pillar earns this a 9/10. One to definitely revisit.

(49) Last one of the day. And boy, did this one not want to be found. At least by me, it didn't! Deeply buried in the hedge, and it was all not helped by the fact that my camera phone was nearly out of charge so couldn't risk using the last dregs of power to check it's location. But it was eventually found and bagged. Parked up on the wide grass verge next to the field entrance/bridleway. A decent walk up to where the walkway does a zig-zag, then walked left of that for a full field length, and then part of the way across the next side of the field. As mentioned above, it is deeply buried in the hedge, so photographing it is difficult. But all complete, and a satisfying trig hunt. And plenty of time to take in the commanding views.

A decent sized gap allows you to cross into the next field, and if you are tall like me, then getting over the (electric?) wire fence, isn't a problem. The pillar itself looks in very good condition indeed. All complete and correct, and a fun find.

(42) Another pillar I've had my eye on visiting, due to the unusual setting it is in. Parked up at the Melholme Lane/Tossey Lane junction, and followed the public bridleway, until just before it continued inside a small wooded section. This is were you will need to cross over into the field on your right. I picked the wrong field side, so needed to get across the ditch. This was dry, but fairly steep sided, and was overgrown with nettles, so some care was needed to cross it. The mound the pillar is situated on is riddled with holes from animal's burrowing in to it, and it was also overgrown with nettles, so it made seeing these, and being sure of your footing, a bit difficult. A few folks out walking their dogs, and one chap was in the field itself, but he never said anything. Pillar all complete, and was glad to catch this one.

Next to the roadside, and in a direct line to the pillar, there was a couple of waste containers that was in the process of being emptied, so I walked the other - much longer - way round. Braved the more direct route going back, and though still a good walk, it's only a brisk eight to ten minutes, if indeed that. The pillar itself is all complete, if a tad mud splattered, and lichen encrusted, but it commands a good central location in the field, so the view in all directions are pretty clear.
