Parked at Bell Hill Farm (SD 0821 9805), took a RoW to Cumblands Farm where I knocked and asked - permission readily given. Pillar sits on a low field boundary embankment, between stock fences and being subsumed into gorse and bramble. Centre cap missing, asphalt plug; FB faces NW; rear sight hole open, others not checked.

Permission readily given by friendly farmer and wife. FB covered in slurry so didn't get a clear picture of the number.

Parked in the usual spot. Virtually every step of the way to this pillar was into either waterlogged bog or deep mud. Not one I'll be revisiting.

Parked on road at start of bridleway to North West. Very boggy area. Farmer was in yard, very friendly gave me directions across field. Buried in hedge, not the best.

Staying at one of the barn conversions on the farm; it would have been wrong not to bag this one.

pretty well clear of course on both sides but NW side had fb. while I was there I suddenly heard a porting water sound. it was a cow having a piss. I hadn't noticed that six Chris Voss had gathered the other side of the fence to check out what was going on as I was busy with the secateurs. made a pencil rubbing of the fb.

Permission given to park at Cumblands adjacent to the small caravan park being built. Field very wet and boggy so took a round about path arriving at the east side of the hedge, pillar barely visible. however from the west the FB is easily readable.

top of pillar JUST visible better access from the other side (the west)

HISTORY: Pillar completed September 1949 costing 9.11s.11d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NY11/T13 in 1952. Levelled for height also in 1952. last maintained by the OS in November 1976. SITE VISIT: Parked SW side of A595 beside electricity substation at SD088983. Followed adjacent bridleway into farmland. Some localised gardening was necessary for photography. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open. Note, the flush bracket faces 309 (NW) so it is important to approach from that side due to the thick gorse boundary lines. NW plugged sight hole plugged, others buried. Views upward to many Lake District Fells, and out to sea.

4/4 Followed asbown's advice after stuggling to find the trig.Very advisable as cows with calves were in the field , friendly farmer gave me the location. Well hidden in hedge and getting very overgrown.
