(1185) And a nice and easy one to round off the day. Parked up at the station, and walked the bridleway to the pillar. In good condition (non original plug though) and located close to a millennium beacon. Good views with TP13658 readily visible in the distance.

Pillar number 202 and I finally have one in Leicestershire. That was the aim of my 140 mile round trip today, just sneaking into the north east of the county. Parked at the railway station, over the line and up the bridleway, through a gate and onto the Beacon and the trig pillar. Plastic cap, good condition and surprisingly wide views from this modest height.

On west side of hedge at summit of Beacon Hill 8m from Beacon post. Easy access from ROW. Clear, cold, sunshine, ground frozen, icy puddles. Fine views over Bottesford, roofs and church spire rising from mist.

Parked at Bottesford railway station and walked up the bridleway. Good job it was frozen or it would have been a very muddy walk. Trig at the top of the hill just past the beacon.

A nice train ride from Nottingham,lunch in nice cafe in Bottesford up to Beacon to continue Judys walk to Aslocton.A hot beautiful day with superb views from pillar.From here it was downhill both in the geography and circumstance,we encounted two different herds of cattle who did there best to deter us from ever walking again. Arrived at Aslockton late due to detours taken.Missed train [2hr wait]for next one,one pub dont do food no shop after train,2buses arrived home 22hrs [beans on toast]but made it home Haaa.

Had to visit an old work mate in Bottesford – so couldn’t resist asking for a guided tour to the trigpoint. Got some interesting stories about the nearby Bottesford airfield and a nuclear bunker in the corner of a field only 50m away. The site was used as a lookout point in WW2 and later as a cold war radiation monitoring position.

This pillar is adjacent to the beacon erected in 2000 by Bottesford Parish Council. Easy access on a public bridleway. It has a plastic plug replacement; no piant; E sighthole open, others closed. The concrete base is partially visible at grass level. Excellent all-round views although very murky today. Now off to find the nearby cache!

Hi, I'm Big Fish and I am the main Trigpointer and Geocacher from the Fishteers. I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, also I will be deleting some of their logs if I found that Trig on my own.

Pillar in good condition, except plug replaced by metal (?) insert. Good views in all directions including (not surprisingly) to Belvoir Castle, Bottesford being one of the "primary substitutes" for Belvoir Castle
