Last and best of five visited around a murky Leamington prior to giving an evening talk at the Pump Room to the Leamington Society. Pleasant walk up path beside track then path to pillar. Scores of starlings on the wires all chattering away stopped when I stopped to look at them. Two seconds silence and they all started again.

Vgc pillar located on a fairly high point in the area. Accessed via the ROW from Radford Semele. Easy path up to the top although claggy underfoot in the torrential rain. Decent views around with the Chesterton Windmill visible through the rain. FB faces east-ish with all sightholes open except north-ish. Cap missing with an asphalt plug in place.

FB on E side, open sightings to E,W & S, N sighting burried. Concrete cap. Tried to see Upper centre mark, but the holes are full of dirt. When I tried to clear to blockage found bits of corroded metal (from trig?) coming out. If you come up here you will see why the OS put a trig point here as there are plenty of potential rays all around except where obstructed by trees. As others have commented on the paths they have used :- from Fosse on the public footpath which runs on the other side of the fence from the track! I left the trig going towards Whitnash past sheep and two falling down brick barns.

Walked up the path from the Fosse Way past the farm with two interested alpacas. Be careful you don't stray off the path and find yourself on the wrong side of the hedge [which I did]. There is an asphalt plug replacement. No paint except around the flush bracket. N sighthole closed, all others open. Its in a corner of an unploughed cereal field from last year and a well-growing broad bean field to the S. Buzzard circling overhead, together with an RAF fighter jet! Lovely N views over Warwick [St. Mary's tower stands out], Leamington and the S edge of Coventry. Nice spot - and the farm owners have put some benches by the path!

Walked up through Radford Semele but went through a farm where a collie went bananas, followed by an increasing cacophony of livestock sounds. It was a bit frightening actually. I then but myself on a wire fence. I'd definitely recommend coming up a different way. Watch out for dog sh*t whichever direction you approach however. I think they must have a lot of dog-walkers round there who can't be bothered to clear up afterwards. Anyway the view of Leamington, and towards the Fosse Way, is surprisingly pretty good from the trig point, which has kept well, and was worth the animal tirade.

Visited this as it's the nearest to my new home in South Leamington. Approached it from Radford Semele which was fairly easy. The farmer (Hill fm) didn't seem too bothered even though I was on my bike. The view is fairly good considering how flat it is around here.

Be careful not to enter Lower Foss Farm by accident as the signs for the guard dogs make them appear pretty nasty. Good to see that the trig was not lost in the building of the nearby phone mast. Nice peaceful walk once you are away from the busy Foss Way.
