Parked in a large car park just off the A417(T) and walked along public paths through Birdlip to the trig, in middle of a field. On to the HuMP, located on the grassy top of a nearby reservoir (workers reluctantly let me walk up there - on my own, 'elf 'n' saftey rools!). Return through woodland paths. The pillar is in good condition.

Easy walk along footpath from road at SE side of Birdlip village. Pillar in good condition, cap has shallow lettering. FB faces E; S sighthole open, all others plugged. Situated in field of very curious cows who were interested in what I was doing with their scratching post! No real views from here but a very pleasant place (ignoring the cowpats)! Position logged from GPS device accurate to 5m.

Parked on the minor road to the west and walked along the footpath. As others have said, there are some nice views across the cotswold plateau to the east and south, but the reservoir blocks what should really be the best. If you want great views go to the view point signed off the B4070 as you enter Birdlip. From there you get an amazing vista across the severn flood plain. Me 297m 297m

The pillar stands next to a public footpath crossing a grass field on the side of a small hill to the south of the village of Birdlip. It has a metal cap with shallow lettering and FB S2431. The trig was reached by the footpath from the village. The hilltop reservoir blocks out the view to the northwest; in other directions the gently rolling farmland and woods of the Cotswold Plateau stretch into the distance. The village of Birdlip is to the north and the upper reaches of the valley above Brimpsfield can be seen to the southeast.

Walked up using the Cotswold Way from Coopers Hill (famous for cheese racing). Nice trig in field of corn,but limited views here and at 297m is 6m short of the summit (which i also bagged). Great views down the road from Barrow Wake.

While offspring is in Caithness logging pillars that even Iainmac probably can't pronounce, I'm back in Middle England! This one's on a footpath just out of the village of Birdlip in the middle of an old-fashioned hay meadow with lots of different grasses and a multitude of butterflies. Where have all these meadows gone??? Anyway, the original plug is there with indented letters and everything is all intact with a little paint still showing. Distant views all round and nearby over Birdlip village. A nice place!
