Bottoms Farm. Via ROW, stone stile at sheds, field, wooden stile, across field towards broken walls.

Bottoms Farm - with my sister. Looking for the stile bumped into 2 ladies on a walk. They joined us to visit the pillar. As 1 had bumped into someone else locating the pillar before and 1 had lived there 28 years and didn't know it was there. Thank you

HISTORY: Pillar completed 12th June 1948 costing 14.8s.6d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SD74/T9 during 1948. Levelled for height in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in October 1979. SITE VISIT: Easy parking on Broadfield (road), SD748267. Approached via RoW network to NNW which is a nightmare of electric fences and dung heaps. Then onto open fields. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre contains a grey plastic cap, fitted 28/05/2000 by JWR. Flush bracket faces ESE, ~124. Vented through SW sight hole. 225 panoramic view spans from SW through north to east. Left via RoW to SE, one barbed fence to negotiate. With hindsight there is a gate from the road into the trig field, to the west of the pillar which I would recommend to future visitors.

Parking on the corner near the cottages, then along ROW, there is a new fence along the left hand side preventing access to the summit, I followed ROW further round to stables where the T junction in the ROW is then left through small paddock then into field straightforward stroll over from there off the ROW. Pillar good condition.

Easily accessible and visible. In open field just off public footpath. I parked in a large turning circle cum layby to the south and then walked down to the start of the footpath. Some slight damage but otherwise in reasonably good conditions. Probably nice views but misty today.

Gate off the lane. Good view to Pendle. Rough pasture, and the cows, seeing me enter, assembled by the gate to cut me off, pawing the ground in anticipation. I outwitted them by cimbing over the wall and falling on to the road. I hate cows!!!!

Nice view and a point of interest: it was a beehive!! (Once read that Grims Ditch S5729 was a blue tits' nest).

Bottoms Farm. Agreeable view. The one open sight-hole was being used by bees.

Starting to crack up, bits missing. Easy to get at in a field recently vacated by cattle who appreciate the pillars abrasive qualities. The pillar is moated by a cattle filled/dug swamp.
