My first visit to Cloudesley Bush was only my 35th pillar and for that in situ on its plinth. Having recently noticed reference to a toppled pillar adjacent I had to return to view this. Unfortunately unable to log this separately on TUK but will do so on my spreadsheet as no. 2732.

Before anyone else does what I did, note this pillar is on the west side of the road! And park in the first gateway if approaching from the S, not the second, and therefore avoiding having to walk back along a road with ferociously fast traffic! In hedge on tall plinth, surrounding vegetation too high to find remains of old pillar. Extensive but flattish views. Metal cap, deep letters, S s/hole open, excellent condition.

After recce-ing ( OK , driving past without seeing it 'till too late ) a parking spot I turned the car and cruised back to the convenient gateway from where the pillar was easily visible a short stroll away on the field side of the hedge . The field is currently knee high bean plants and the margin quite uneven , but only perhaps 80m of it to negotiate to the pillar which is in good condition with all its metalwork in place and looks as if it has been painted white some time in the past . It stands proud of the field soil on its distinct concrete plinth. Nice views if you appreciate beans ... N52 28.668 W 001 18.975

I pulled off the Fosse Way into the field gateway a couple of hundred feet to the south and walked up the edge of the field, carefully avoiding the bean plants. The pillar is in good condition, has all itís metalwork in place and is mounted on a very substantial plinth. The views are nothing to write home about but OK if you like flat, rural landscapes. Interestingly, there are the remains of a second pillar in the hedge a few feet away.
