(873) Last one for the day, as it was becoming increasingly hot again. Went Edge Road not the widest, with fast moving traffic, so was glad of the field entrance pull-in. Pillar only a short distance from there. Plug non original. And if I've added up correctly, this is my 140th extant pillar.

Easy spot from the road. Up the hedge line in the field. It now has a new trig protection scheme as a trench has been dug out where you enter the field to access the trig.

Fourth of 5 cycling trigs, and definitely feeling tired, facing long slog back to Sheffield but enjoying the trig bagging. Trig is easily accessed in good condition, and covered in flies (third time!). Views are extensive but low lying. A1 trundles noisily S of trig. Why is it callled 'Castle Hill' trig?

Originally planned to visit this one in February but as we pulled up the heavens opened and we headed back up the A1. The pillar stands on a verge between a field and a track and is close to the main road with extensive views all around. Parking on the track is good on dry days but for those who fear the arrival of angry agricultural folk a lay-by is available 500m up the road towards Kirk Smeaton. P.S. the trig is called Castle Hill after the iron age fort, now quarried away, which lay about 1km north-west of the pillar, ref. North Yorkshire CC, ny walks.

Arable landscape that's hardly inspiring. Easy access from nearby road - 50 yards into unfenced field, from a distance it looked chest high in wheat today but it's sat on the field boundry and a doddle to tig. Not far fron the noisy A1. Hiked from South Elmsall railway station with Sue taking in Upton Beacon (revisit for me) and heading for Moor Lane (see updated log) & eventually Ponte'. No cars, on foot.
