From the OS map I expected this to be buried in a hedge so was pleasantly surprised to find this diminutive pillar at the edge of the farm track.

As per everyone else! Fifth and final TP of the day that started at Hart and worked our way westward, skipping a couple on the way where the presence of the big dog might have been more awkward to explain...

Easy bag, just off farm track which is also public footpath. Had to dig the flush bracket out of long grass but otherwise good nick although centre plug missing. Views of Cockfield fell and open countryside otherwise not very exciting.

Cycled from home to pillar. Open spider - pillar has minor chipping on a top edge- bottom of flush bracket is approx at local ground level. Views not bad - can see Roseberry Topping! 4283 is prime!

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and remains in a good condition.
