Parked at comms compound by lane signed as leading to Broadley Castle Farm (Coxwall Farm on my 1:25k map). Pillar sits on a plinth between raised field boundary and stock fencing to N side of lane, beneath overhanging trees. Original centre cap retained, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole open.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there. Somewhat moss covered but seems to be still in good condition.

Easily spotted from the track leading past the mast, but a barbed wire fence needs to negotiated to view the flush bracket side.

It's down the lane past the mast on the right hand side just behind the eroded hedgebank in a field full of sheep. Plug with indented lettering.
