Rode access road to Penn farm, then up footpath. Several easy ways through hedge. Pillar almost surrounded by a hawthorn bush, although not a hedge. Last of the day between Blaxhall and Cambridge, and 11th + FBM in last four days.

Deviated off the path to visit this whilst on a walk from Saffron Walden. Managed to vault across the ditch in drizzly rain and wandered over. Partly obscured by bramble bush. Overhead pylons detract from overall views!

"obvious gap in hedge" - Cipollini - farmer has tried to block this and put up a Public no ROW sign. The Icknield Way from NE was a slippery mud fest with running stream in February. Best to use FP leading to Penn Farm which is a track as far as the farm

Replenished by a pint and a chip butty at the pub in Hadstock, found TP via a very pleasant walk up the Icknield Way. TP through reasonably obvious gap in hedge just after f/p goes under line of pylons. Part covered by hawthorn scrub, on edge of ditch, original plug. Peaceful rolling arable countryside, fluffy white clouds, big sky, warm sun - a lovely English summer afternoon. Returned to Hadstock via Windpump Cottage/Pen Farm.

For this one, Angelika and I parked in Hadstock village, not far from the pub. More about that later. We followed the road south and eventually found the footpath which took us through Pen Farm to the pillar. One of the paths, which crossed a crop field had been ploughed over and not re-instated so we followed the tractor lines across as best we could. It was a warm, windless day and we were quite hot by the time we arrived. The pillar had been damaged slightly with a chunk of concrete missing from the top but all the metalwork was still in place. The pillar is in danger of being completely overgrown by the hawthorn bush that now obscures half of it. The views were very nice without being spectacular. We followed the Icknield Way back to make a pleasant circular walk of it. Unfortunately, that meant we had to walk back past the pub. The cold pint of cider was most welcome.

A retrospective log. Found in May during a Geocaching trip, but only today (14-10-2010) found trig pointing. This could be the start of something big! ;)

visited whilst walking with friends, also found the geocache hidden here. Views are pleasant enough but nothing special, same goes for the walk to get here.

Walked up from Hadstock, took a wrong turn but I was working from memory and a road GPS !! Anyway, found it OK, the long way round.

One spider arm exposed at the tip from the chipping but otherwise ok makes for a nice circular walk if you parking in Hadstock.

Pleasant walk up from Linton, and quite good views. Plug with raised lettering. This pillar is a rebuild - previous pillar had FB no S4519.

I agree with discjirm about this being difficult to find. My 1:50,000 map shows this TP to be on the Icknield Way footpath, but finding it can be quite difficult. Very easy to miss gap in the hedgerow that leads to TP. Apart from that access is easy via the footpath (interesting walk through the wood!). Good views all round

I have walked past this place once befre and did not manage to find the pillar - found it today, just over the hedge from the Icknield Way. It is slightly damaged, with some of the concrete on a top edge having been broken away. The trig point is surrounded by some sparse hawthorn bushes that made photography difficult.
