Then up to the top adjacent to the air vent tower for the railway tunnel. Great views almost all round. All view holes open and original cap.

N 52 35.620 W 000 40.085 I had been here some time ago for a geocache which was ( and probably still is ) next to the pillar but now I know about trigpointing too ! Easy parking despite the busy road with a lay by for East and West bound drivers , followed by a short but quite steep little man made hill with pillar in good condition on the top . First time I've spotted an OS info plate added to a pillar .Photos taken of it , and good views but a bit dull late on an autumn afternoon !

Parked in layby opposite, clambered over gate into field. Had to negotiate some rape, then tackle the ring of stingers protecting the mound. Thigh-high vegetation currently growing all over the mound and around the pillar. Not very usual to see a trig pillar positioned on an artificial hill, I thought. Pillar has an OS plaque, dated 1999.

Joint visit with Carole. We parked in the lay-by on the southern side of the A47 just to the west of the pillar. Then went through an open gateway and simply followed a walked trod up to the pillar which stands on a raised mound by the railway air chimney. The pillar is in good condition, still retains an original indented metal plug and has one of the GPS Network plaques attached. An elevated view point with a geocache deserves a high score!

The first of 8 logs for the day going to and from the 75th anniversary meet at Cold Ashby. Good views from here over the glowing fields of rape. The strange little hill as Scafell3210 calls it is spoil from the excavation of Glaston tunnel, brought up via what is now the adjacent ventilation shaft.

Big Fish is out caching with The Imp today and as we drove up the road The Imp suddenly pulled in and said, there's a cache round here somewhere, so up the hill we trundled and lo and behold what was waiting for us on the top but this nice little Trig. An unexpected bonus on today's trip. It was bloomin freezing up here today in that wind, not too bad once you'd got off the top.
