Difficult to find as it was completely hidden in the overgrown hedgerow. Parked on the nearby road, under the transmission lines. Climbed over gate and walked up the hill along the hedgerow to the pylon at the top corner, then left along another hedgerow for 50yds. Pillar well hidden but now visible from the E side of the hedgerow. A helpful resident in the nearby cottge helped me find it.

Short walk up hill from southwest. Pillar is in hedge, and slight damage is probably from hedge cutting in the past. Retains plug, indented lettering. Good views north and south/west.

Parking at large gated field entrance to SE. Across 2 pastures to trig nestling in hedgerow (in danger of being consumed by bramble). 2 top edges badly damaged, probably during hedge cutting. Original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; all sight holes possibly closed, rear awkward to access. Extensive views E & S.

the verge outside the nearby house is the property of the local road authority but the house maintains it by cutting the grass so does not want you to park on THEIR strip

Accessed from the road to the east; the pillar is sited in a bramble hedge at the top of a small hill that was being grazed by sheep. It has metal cap with deep lettering and FB S5854. Bulbarrow Hill can be seen to the southeast, the wooded sides of Gore Hill to the south west and rolling low hills of fields and woodland to the northwest
