Roadside verge parking (NY 1727 5890). Walked the lane, hopped fence and across sheep pasture. Pillar sits in a gorse field boundary, but is accessible. An original centre cap is retained, deeply indented lettering; LHS sight hole open, RHS & rear not determined - below ground level. Good views across the Firth.

Little to add. Just a solitary line of neck high barbed wire across entrance to field. No stock. Bitterly cold.

Up yet another track not to bad this time had to walk a field further because of beef cattle.Managed to dodge under the gorse and photo the trig and plug before the cattle charged.Did some research on the massive circle of comms masts near here it transpires there transmitting coded microwave messages to our submarines!

Good condition pillar at field boundary. FB faces west-ish with north-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with sunken lettering. Great views to Criffel. Easy enough access from the lane to the south although the gate has more barbed wire piled on it since the last visitor.

Interesting neighbour (the Radio Station, which TomTom tried to take me thro' :-/ ) Extra point for the wonderful sunset that 'tangoed' my photos! :-) All in situ and well with only NW sight open. Another muddy lane to reach this sheepy field.

Cardurnock ..tangoed! :-)

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Walked along greenlane from village and across field from barbed wired gate to trig. Should have taken cutters to trim back gorse a bit.

Approach along lane, which was slightly overgrown but not muddy. Trig hidden in a gorse bush. Excellent view of Criffel and adjacent radiomasts.

No status comment as all I could see was a little bit of stone though the gorse hedge while inspecting from the ajoining field. Why adjoining? 20 young cattle without udders was a sufficient deterrent. Parking in the village where the main green lane leaves the road.

We parked at the farm and walked down the grassy track and up the field to the trig - no problem. Good view of the radio masts. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
