Parked in a rough lay-by slightly to the south-west of the clump, and walked around two fields of what looked like young lettuce (in November?) through the scruffy woods to find the pillar in its hedge. Black plastic cap, and one sight-hole open.

Both name and also a numerologically significant number is on the flush bracket. Very few 14** series pillars and it represents for me my dad's birthday trig walk as he was an Easter Sunday April fool born 1/4/23 so this would've been his 72 nd birthday pillar just acouple of years before his last hill walk with me on Skye two years later. ,I'm his oldest child and I was born in Blackheath. Triggy memories dad.

Parked at field entrance on minor road to SE. Field boundaries to trig, found well encased in hedgerow with an ivy and nettle overcoat! Ran across with no pack, so no gardening tools... Doh! Cleared what I could with hands and boots, but a lot left to be cut back, particularly to clear the top. Pillar in reasonably good condition, small chipping from one corner of top screed. Made no notes for some reason, but remember it had a composite centre plug; sight holes unknown. Good views E to Milton Down.

The hedge was hugely overgrown, and even 30 mins of rummaging failed to reveal it. I was in the right place, according to other pics, but it is now well covered. Winter will no doubt reveal it

Looked at access from West first then from East. Chose the latter to try and reached/found without too much difficulty.
