Parked on roadside on B6275 at a convenient gate. A commando yomp skirting edge of a recently ploughed field. Trig is hidden within a hedgerow. A small gap exists in the hedge where intrepid trig baggers have used as an access point. Pillar is well protected and in v good condition.

Parked at crossroads, walked down the road to the intersection of hedges and quick climb over the fence. Typical farming country.

A wet walk along field edge or a dodgy walk on the road, road won, there is a gap in the roadside hawthorn hedge just by the field boundary containing the pillar

I had a spare half hour on my post round so decided to go for this one. Parked on roadside to Denton and walked up the field edge. Farmer was sowing a crop but didn't stop me accessing the trig.

Parked near crossroad and walked back along road, not a good move very busy due to major road diversion. Trig is on north side of hedge line and a short section of wooden fencing give easy access to field.

Easy pillar to find and access. Final "tick" of 12 day cycling holiday. A total of 33 reached, but one shown on map now removed, one inaccessable due to crops, and one not reachable where new crops were being planted.

Pillar is in a hedge but visible and access is quite easy. I parked at the crossroads and entered the field through an open gateway. Had been ploughed since last visit and the previous days rain meant that I returned six inches higher due to the mud that was stuck to the soles of my shoes. Pillar is hidden in north side of hedge with flush bracked on field side. In good condition apart from the plug being missing. Nice views from this slightly elevated location.
