Toppled 2nd Jun 2020  18:29  by THE CYCLIST

Failed to find at first attempt last week due to directions being out of date. With the re-visit of "What's the Point" and his hints it was easy. Left bike in Tatenhill at footpath sign by well and bench and followed wide grass path between trees. At the top there is a large metal gate and I made it about 85-90 paces to the left (NE) in hedge bottom. Clear of undergrowth. Later looked at Anslow leys pillar, but it was surrounded by cattle keeping in the shade of the hedge, so I didn't visit.

Re visit. It's still here. Came to have a look since my fellow trigger 'THE CYCLIST' didn't manage to find it. It is 20m from the stile but not the stile in the corner - all that remains of the 2015 stile is a single post. It's more like 100m from the corner stile. Easily found using my phone.

Came equipped with map print from website and "20m from stile". Spent about 20-30 mins prodding and trashing a long length of hedge bottom of undergrowth without success.

Easily found thanks to the previous logs. In hedge by side of a grassy track. Mind the ditch.

Spent about 20mins in brambles and nettles before I found Trigger's block of concrete. Turned it over and hey presto. Left in near upright position. In hedge bottom 20m up from stile. Think Trigger deserves the credit for this - one good push and he'd have found the pot of gold. Had this logged as damaged but think toppled may be more accurate.
