Parked in the entrance track to the woods. The unkempt track is still easily passable. Quite a steep pull all the way up. Cap has been broken through. Decent view.

Tricksy access through managed woodland to W. Good forest 'road' to SN 73420 33775 after which path no longer maintained and deteriorating, maybe impassable in a year or 2. Eventually field gate gives out onto pleasant open hilltop pasture with short walk to trig. Pillar in good condition on exposed concrete plinth; cap missing, remains of cement plug painted white; both side sight holes open. Excellent panoramic views.

This appeared harder on the map than when I got there.parking just inside wood to the West,follow path straight up ,go left at junction then Right at next ,follow this untl it meets a fence which leads to a gate and open pasture containing pillr.Good views pleasant walk .Think wood is private but unless you are unlucky would be surprised if you meet anyone.Pillar in good condition .
