Parked at track entrance (NY 5242 7976). Good forest roads to with 50m of the pillar, which sits a short distance into felled forest, plenty of brash for the hop across to it. An original centre cap is retained, deeply indented lettering; all sight holes open. Extensive panorama.

No new planting yet. If felled pattern followed for re-planting, the trig will not be in a clearing

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. 30m E of highest point of forest road. Fallen trees: easiest to go a few m further S then NE to trig. Cold drizzly day.

A lot of the forest has now been cleared but the tracks shown on the map are still the same, by leaving the track at its highest point the trig can be found about thirty meters into the forest,its pretty dark under the mature trees and I was pleased to find it quickly !
