Roadside verge parking. Cattle pasture with friendly belted galloways. Pillar sits on W side of, and is partially consumed by, thorn hedgerow. One top corner has been chipped away, most likely from a flailer, and there is a patina of hair fractures covering at least the front face. Original top cap retained, deeply indented lettering; front, LH & RH sight holes closed, rear not determined.Good general views all directions.

Hopped over a rather shaky wooden gate and a short walk over a waterlogged field to the pillar buried in a hawthorn hedge.

Last of day. Tertiary station pillar completed 15th March 1952 costing 21.0s.0d. Column in hedge, appears to have been damaged by hedge cutter in past. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush btracket faces 292 WNW. Presumably vented through SE sight hole which is buried in hedge. Limited outlook. Photographed 26/05/2010, GRP.
