Nice approach through the woods then across a couple fields following the row. Pillar sits under a lovely old beech tree which has grown to block some views. Fairly fresh coat of paint, more cream than pure white but nice to see it looked after. Plastic cap in spider.

What a pillar this is... I parked on Nutwith Lane at SE 21058 77829 and made my way through the woods - thanks to the Swinton Estate for the access. I left the woods on the ROW heading south around Horsepasture Hill and quickly saw the trig ahead - it has had a stunning new coat of paint recently. A quick hop over a knackered barbed wire fence and an easy stroll through a pasture field and the pillar is sat atop a grassy bank under the shade of a huge old beech tree. It is a beautiful, wonderful spot. It was so peaceful, with the sun shining and the grasshoppers buzzing; I could have sat there all day. The pillar is in excellent condition, and the new paint job makes it look new (albeit it isn't quite white, it's more a vague magnolia shade.) I returned the same way. Highly recommended.

Parked at visitor car park. Short walk through woods to this pillar. Trig stands proud on a small incline and next to a tree. Lovely setting.

via the woodland to the East -access by the kind permission of the Earl of Swinton-followed forest tracks and ROW to the Trig which sits atop an enclosure wall overshadowed by a large tree. The Trig is in good condition with a plastic cap, and four open sight holes, the view is obscured by the tree and various hedgerows, similar return

Parked at SE 231 775 and followed the public right of way through Oak Bank. There were signs up saying that the Earl was kindly letting us use his woodland - very gracious of him I thought - and the woodland was particularly beautiful in the morning sun. Followed the path into the field to the West of the pillar to find it was planted up but was able to follow "tramlines" to the trig.

Easy access close to the footpath, we walked up through the woods. It's on top of the bank of a square enclosure, though the bank doesn't go all the way round, part of the sides are just steep hill-slopes. The National Monument Record at pastscape.org.uk lists it as possibly a Roman army camp or possibly a medieval enclosure (which basically means no-one knows how old it is or what it was used for).

A short walk up a PROW from the car park for Hackfall woods. Trig is in good condition but partially obscured by a large beech tree growing right next to it on the little knoll and which obscure the good views into the Vale of York. Trig in good condition with plastic plug and all four holes open.

Visible and easily accessible (after harvest time) being just off public footpath. Pillar stands at the end of a raised area between fields so this adds its raised aspect. Everything in good order.
