Parked at Bempton Cliffs and walked back down the road towards Bempton. Birthday trig with Melissa. Pillar moved but this has made access very easy down a permissive path. Trailer still there and the moved trig survives next to it. Spider exposed, I hope this one lives on. Interest of plenty near by, the fantastic Yorkshire Coast, Bempton Cliffs and its bird population and some interesting RAF stations.

Parked at end of track. The tanker is still there. Original cap. Marking condition as 'slightly damaged' as the spider is exposed.

Parked on cliff lane to the west,spotted the tanker straight away,found no sign of pillar,went back to consult my photos with the ones on here and thought there may have been two tankers so headed back.walked approx 200 yards from the tanker and the pillar was located on the side of the track all alone!the tanker must be used still and gets moved around!trig in good condition after it's upheaval

Walked from the road, glad I left the car at the end as the track was awful. The trig has been dumped at the side of the track. Do not know what will happen to it next. It would look much better in my garden.

Drove right to this pillar, its a pity that it no longer lives where it should be! Looking at the log entries and photo's on here it must have been moved in 2009!

Very windy! Did the nearby geocache then set off along the permissive path towards Bempton Cliffs. Pillar on side of track next to old tanker. Adjacent fields with spring grain. Original plug with slightly indented letters. No paint. Concrete base exposed about 3" all round. Good views all round.

Windy day and dodeged the rain. Relatively solid track right to the pillar which is still next to the tanker. Easy parking at end of track from West.

Confirmed as moved from the middle of the arable field, to a trackside location (adjacent to a water tanker in summer 2011). After several minutes wandering mystifid around the field, I then spotted it away to the south.

Plug intact. Pillar in vgc (no scrape marks) in its midfield position. A permissive path goes around the field edge. Grey skies with rain approaching. A very sleek rat was eating the food put out for the birds at the RSPB visitor centre.
