Re-visit.. In South side of hedge. Also visited higher funnily just to the south. Had intended to take a cast with some Das of the flush bracket on the way back from the tumulus but by that time it was raining quite heavily and so I sadly abandoned and scarpered back to the car. I'll come back.

Took direct approach and asked permission at stables/farm. Owner reluctantly agreed, got the impression next person taking this approach will not be so lucky. Pillar on S side mature hedgerow, but small gap in hedge at pillar saved the day! Lot of thorn and nettles needed cutting back to access. In good condition; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; all sight holes open. Views SW to distant farmland; all other directions obscured by hedgerows.

From the farm to the east, asking some girls who were mucking out. When I came back, new girl was mucking out - bemused by my sad hobby. Rather that than mucking out all day! Pillar in hedge - looks OK

Left bike by entrance to Scout camp. Gate leads into belt of trees with minimal undergrowth. Stepped over one fence and cirlced edge of newly tilled field to find pillar in far hedge row at obvious high point. This completes my visits to pillars in the Cotswolds.Done on day trop from Stow-on-the-Wold YHA.

A hidden gem. Lovely spot on a summer's evening with a view of a barrow across the field. Just a bit of a cloddy trek around the fields up to it.

The pillar sits inside a hedge between two arable fields on a small hill on the edge of the Cotswolds to the northwest of Nailsworth. I parked at the entrance to Pen Wood and skirted the field opposite to reach the trig. The pillar has a metal cap with shallow lettering. The FB S2545 faces the southern field. The site has a fine view to the northwest over the Cotswold Edge, across the Vale of Berkeley and the River Severn to the hills of the Forest of Dean. The wooded folds of the Cotswold Edge continue to the north; Rodborough Common can be seen to the northeast. Skirting the perimeter of the field to the south of the trig gives a view over Woodchester Park. The lane to Boundary Court has a good view to Minchinhampton Common in the east. A surviving cut bench mark can be seen on the corner of a building of Boundary Court. Selsley Common is a fine open space with fantastic views. The short walk back through Pen Wood was also very pleasant.

been thinking about doing this 1 for sometime now due to it being named after me (well that's my story anyway),as I was in the area I could resist no longer, parked at the stables and easy walk up to the trig, good views.

The fog was really bad and I couldn't see further than about ten yards. Then I found that things improved when I wiped the condensation off the inside of my glasses!
