(1796) Handy parking on Top Street just before the rail bridge over the East Coast main line - I wonder if I'll be able to spot the pillar next time I'm heading to London? Steady stroll down Stocking Lane until level with the pillar, then a quick divert off the PRoW and into the field. Had phoned ahead to ask for permission to visit (Orchard Hill Farm - 01777 838246) Tractor tracks handy to avoid any trampling of the crop. All good though the cap is asphalt. Cracking views at the location. Pillar history: Built on the 25th of September 1937, at a cost of 4 2s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in December of 1982.

Visited during a trigpoint-bagging bike ride. Approached from the east via Askham village, the pillar is reached by taking the rough lane on the right just before the railway bridge, then following another track left into the field. I had directions from a friendly lady walking her dogs. Pillar in good condition, pleasant elevated situation overlooking the railway line with views towards Clumber Park.

Sighted from the train, so really only half a log, and I will have to visit on foot to get an accurate grid reference.

Quite good views from here, over to the Trent power stations, and over the nearby East Coast Main Line, where trains passed by quite frequently. A pleasant walk up from the road which crosses the railway on the top of a short tunnel.

FPs not advisable as second field ploughed over. Best approach is via Church Lane which becomes a hedged grassy track and continues right up to trig, although i wouldn't say it was driveable.

Walked from Gamston church E. along track past Glebe Farm, under railway line then a quick hike up the hill to the trig. Trig was surrounded by newly planted crops, not as near to the track as suggested by the 1:50000 map suggested. Had to get a shift on as no idea where Brotherwood Farm was. Trig is in good condition with wide, expansive views all round. Not bad! Then walking on to East Markham and trig at 758722.

Drove up the track till a sign said PRIVATE ROAD No access without permission. Didn't venture any further. Did get a glimpse further down the track though.

Fantastic location with lovely views on sunny afternoon. Pursued by a variety of dog walkers, courting couples and manic locals (presume the farmers) on a Army/Deer Stalking style ATV being used to run the dogs with minimum effort on their part.

So, offspring back in Lincoln for his final year and me off to Italy for 3 weeks tomorrow [no trigs there!], so an opportunity to do the Retford cluster before I go!. This one is quite a hike off the lane but easy access along farm tracks. Asphalt plug replacement. No significant paint visible. N sighthole closed, others open. Concrete base exposed 12" or more on W face. In splendid isolation in a huge arable field, one half of which has been recently ploughed, the other harvested but unploughed. Commanding views all round, including Lincoln cathedral distant. For the train spotters among us, there is a good view of the east-coast main line.
