Parked in layby at the Powfoot sign. Over the gate opposite to follow the field edge to trig .no problem.

Parked in layby just outside Powfoot. Gate wired into replace section of fence, easily scaled. Bad timing! Just as I was getting to trig, farmer and mate arrived to feed cattle at point very close to trig. I suspect they were not pleased to find me there, but one of them was good enough to call his two loose dogs away from me.

Other than a dead sheep close to the pillar the fields were empty due to electric line works. Parked in the pleasant village of Powfoot. Pillar in sparse hedgerow.

I approached from the east, by way of the back of a new house plot which appears currently unoccupied. I crossed over into the horse field at a tight fence corner (luckily the 2 horses I could see were at the other side of the field) and headed up and round to the fence/hedge where the pillar sits. Not much of a view for somewhere so close to the Solway Firth but a nice enough location. FB faces E; W sighthole open, others plugged. Original metal cap with deep narrow embossed letters. Further details and photos to follow...

Approached from the south, a path leading to a hole in a fence, into the wood containing the mother of all kid's huts. The pillar is now between two fences protecting a newly planted hedge. Plate faces east. All bits are there.

Traditional trig. Top intact. Access to field by gate on minor rd. to east. Trig over another field boundary but no need to cross this to touch trig or read no.
