As others have said, over 2 gates and it is in front of you. Quite overgrown.

Walked into farm yard and asked permission. No problem. Trig in hedge line on east side of track.

I parked in the lane near the pillar, hoped over the gate, which drew the attention of a local, and made my way to the pillar. When I returned the local asked what I was doing. So I told her. She appeared relieved as there is a planning application for the field to be made into homes. Personally I think the pillar is safe (as it just falls outside of the field) but time will tell.

Easy to find by following GIANQ's directions below and still nicely cleared. However watch out for cow pats when crossing the field. The car had an earthy smell following my mistake and I had to sit in the pub garden for lunch.

Easily accessed from lay by on A46. Hopped over two gates to find it hiding in a hedge. As no one has been here for a while i had to remove some ivy and other plants to take pic of FB.

Passed her many times hoping for the farmyard gates to be open, today was my chance. Saw the farmer and he gave me the go ahead to walk straight up the track to find the pillar on the right of the path.

Brookshill Farm firmly bolted and barred; accessed over farm gate at W end of large off-road layby, and around side/rear of house 'Four winds'. Pillar found in good condition on E side farm track, completely encased in ivy and bramble. Cleared most of it. Original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; L/RHD sight holes open, front sealed, rear undetermined. Misty views to E only.

Friendly framer pointed us in the right direction, readily allowing access. He appears to be very security conscious and asked us to lock the steel clad gate on exit. He then caught up with us and suggested we leave via the field which exits into the lay-by with the gate towards the western end so that he could lock the gate. Pillar very well hidden in hedge on eastern side of track 3m north of gate exiting above mentioned field.

Crossed the field from the bridleway feeling quite conspicuous, but no one about. Eventually found the pillar with some difficulty, in hedge facing the bridleway - it was certainly well hidden, but seems to be in good health.

Useful large layby nearby. Farmer readily gave permission to visit. Adjacent track, the pillar was not suprisingly for time of year a little overgrown with brambles. Remnants of white paint. Retains plug, large shallow indented lettering.

This is supposed to be in the hedge according to other loggers but we couldn't find it and were running out of time. I thought it might be in the field, but there were some extremely fierce looking horses (of which I'm not normally afraid) and a bull, so discretion being the better part of valour, we decided not to investigate further. Besides, there was the most appalling smell of rotting rubbish around, and I was beginning to feel a little queasy...

Good large layby accessed via farmyard and track at eastern end of layby. Trig in hedge but GPS signal unusually unstable.

Quickly nipped across the field from the bridleway. One of the few trigs in this area which still boasts its original metal plug.

Congrats Mr Young. I couldn't see it from the nearby paths - even with my monocular.
