re-visit. Seems an unlikely site tucked into the hedgerow, the land on the other side of the road being higher and a more prominent point on this side would be further to the North. Gaining ivy cover.

Found with the help of previous logs. Although on a few feet away I couldn't spot it as it was enclosed by the hedgerow.

Handy pull in adjacent and easily accessible from the gate a few yards away. Horseshoe still present on the top. Both gates open but a bit boggy round the entrances.

They have moved the roller, as the trig is the opposite way to where it is now, hidden in plain site in the hedge.

this cheeky chappie is hiding in plain sight..sort of. theres currently a large yellow field roller in front of it. parking opp farm entrance and in through gate on right.double back on yourself and not 20 yards along the field boundary thar she blows. still adorned with a shoe. but in good nick. not a bad view with your back to the flush bracket which is getting a nesty border of moss.

Can concur with Garth; trig becoming one with the hedge, it took about 5mins to find. (Got in through the first gate, then is through a second gate in hedge). Sadly the time of year and muddy bog didn't make this a very nice find. Although I did encounter the farmer; she seemed really pleasant and had no problem with me going to grab the trig.

Through the open gate, then the pillar is just past the shut second gate. Already a bit overgrown and hiding in the hedge. Visited S1897/8/9 in order within an hour.

No view from here - just the back of a hedge. I cleared a lot of moss and undergrowth from around the pillar, which is in good nick with original plug intact.

At the summit of a cheekyly steep hill adjacent to High Hill Farm. Climbed over gate opposite farm, pillar is in hedge to R and over another gate. Lots of moss around the FB. Views only to NE. Last one of the day - long ride home.

Very well camouflaged in the hedge

Access to the field was very muddy. Pillar is becoming camouflaged in green. Take a walk along the public footpath directly opposite the trig through the farm - intriguing insight into farming practices.

Fortunately the farmer was in the adjacent farmyard so that prevented any clandestine gate climbing. Original plug with slightly indented letters. No paint but alot of white lichen blobs on it and much moss around the base. N sighthole open, the others closed. Holes under hooks infilled. Some views eastwards over farmland.

Typical! The FP is away from the hedge. Can almost touchthe pillar,its right by the hedge, but to read the FP you need to cross into a field before the farm house, and wade through a lot of cattle and their products.
