After my pleasant half hour at Hare Hill down the coast ,this area was poor fare Not an inspiring area and no pillar to boot.

Somewhere near the bench. Little reason to linger.

OS records this destroyed March 1956, and after nearly 60 years it goes without saying there were no remains to be found.

kerbline/road verge, no trace of pillar. Presumably removed when houses built

Overgrown grassy area between houses and golf course. Only a bench nearby nowadays.

Still missing - would have been on the edge of a run down 1950's/60's housing estate. No reason for it to have been demolished - the sat nav put the location a few yards from the nearest house.

agree with iainmac,no reason to have gone, looks like it should be between housing and golf course

No obvious reason as gps indicated grassy area near houses and golf course.

Whilst I was on Walney Island bagging the other two I tried for this but it looks like it has long gone.
