Looked at this one a few years ago, but was unable to get access. Things have changed now. The big gates are still there, they were open with a sign pointing to a kennels, so I drove in parked asked the girls working there and was given permission to wander over, the field is now has cut grass, very different to CJO image form 2012. Pillar good condition.

Immediate access from lane prevented by large hedges and locked security gate. However, there is a clearly marked footpath to the West, and ready access across apparently abandoned fields. Pillar readily visible.

Delivering rhubarb plants to Singing Friends, so an opportunity for a little light trigging en route. Very lucky here - peering through gate at trig, thinking b****r another blue dot! when the farmer turned up (tip - he only knows this as a lump of concrete in his paddock, and not as a trig, pillar etc!). Told me of the number of visitors he gets (to his mystification), the problems he's had with trespassers (the new gates are a result of a 4WD that drove all the way to the trig wrecking his hay crop), and that he has a chap who has made five offers to buy the trig which he has refused - he asked me whether he owned it, I replied I thought not, so he said if it belonged to someone else he'd try not to hit it with his hay cutting machinery! What a wonderful chap, bless! Rolling Herts views, W s/hole open, metal cap shallow letters, exc condition.

A locked gate prevented access, approached via PROW to West and crossed several fences to enter a group of fields waist deep in grass with even taller nettles and thistles. The previously reported stables look disused with the adjacent barn used to store assorted farming and building materials. As it was getting pretty late i did not wish to draw attention to my prescence even though nobody was obviously around. Initially I could not see the Pillar, but once I stood on a pile of gravel i could see the Pillar peeping out from a clump of nettles. saw a fox as i made a stealthly retreat.

Was hoping to find a friendly stablehand but nobody about when I came calling. So quickly jumped the fences & grabbed a couple of pics while my daughter distracted the geese. Will probably be appearing on crimewatch later as I clocked the CCTV camera on the way back :(

In the middle of a muddy paddock with a couple of friendly horses and a flock of not so friendly geese. This is on private property but luckily a stable hand came along and gave me permission to examine the trig.
