Convenient passing place for stopping. In corner of oil seed rape field by gateway. whitewashed. Distant view might be reasonable but it is rather hazy today. Immediate surroundings pretty dull for such a funnily named hill.

HISTORY: Pillar completed around November 1947, exact datails not on record. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NZ42/T91 in 1948. Levelled for height also in 1948. Recomputed as same in 1986. Final maintenance by the OS given as 1991 but now maintained as a GPS passive station. SITE VISIT: Approached from east. Parked by east side of unclassified road opposite. Large gap in hedge forms field entrance, trig just behind hedge line. Pillar in excellent condition, GPS plate and painted white. Plastic cap in spider. Flush bracket faces north, ~4. Vented through east sight hole. Part open outlook but much overtopped by surrounding hedges.

This pillar is in the corner of a field, just inside the gate (which was lying on the ground, broken). There is room to park a car, off-road, right opposite the field entrance. It looks like this pillar has had a coat of white paint fairly recently. Its in good condition but the centre plug has been replaced with a plastic bung. It also carries the second OS plate indicating that this is now a passive station. The views are reasonable in some directions.
