Good condition pillar atop a large plinth tucked into a field corner. The pillar is also protected by a wooden fence. FB faces west-ish with no sightholes open. Original cap missing with replacement plastic plug. OK views over the Solway.

Easy find walking down to the Edward I monument. Apparently old Longshanks had camped overnight on Burgh Marsh whilst suffering from dysentery and paid the ultimate price for his recklessness (or stupidity?) - this was in 1307, and there is a fine statue of him in the village commissioned in 2007, to commemorate 700 years since his demise. Well worth visiting the fortified church of St Michael in the village where the late king lay in state for several days. Pillar has plastic cap & one sight-hole open.

Foundations exposed by cattle, plug missing. Very accessable, once you bite the bullet and try to cross Carlisle. Thanks to that bottleneck this is very much a backwater, and I enjoyed the novelty of being on the English side of the Solway. Views to Queensferry, Criffel, the Liddesdale hills and a very clear Skiddaw.

The pilalr is stuck in the corner of a field; access is easy via a gate from the adjacent road. If you visit this pillar try and make sure you see the nearby Edward I monument.
