(566) A bit of a milestone, this one. My 100th extent pillar. Very visible from the roadside. Tackled from the start of the PRoW, then turned right into the following field. Which is fenced (Electric?) but one side is wide open. No livestock about, and only grass growing in the field. Quite damaged, with a big chunk missing and cracks aplenty, but all metalwork in place.

Last one of the day and wasn't expecting to get to this one so easily. The trig point is badly cracked and has a big lump out of one side. The field is grass at the moment.

I had the wrong footwear on again. Parked by the village hall and paddled across the field until the point where my shoes were in danger of sinking in to the mud. Clearly visible but I didn't get close enough to touch it.

Prominent from lane, 150m into field of young crop. Chunk missing from one side and numerous cracks in concrete. Sunshine, calm. Good views out to west. The leaning tower of St. James church in the village is worth a visit.

parked by village hall??? at the south of dry doddington, walked thro partially open gate a little west along the road, then south along the hedge row until I could follow tractor tracks up to trig near middle of field ... upcoming crop looked like grass, but better safe than sorry.

Used this visit as a short break on our journey down the A1 from Yorkshire to Kent. Easily sighted in recently-harvested field. Attractive village green, St. James' church has leaning tower.

the trig is damaged, the church tower on the lean and the pub is shut Monday dinner, apart from that everything is fine and the views very good.

This pillar is badly damaged. There is a huge chunk of concrete out of the west face and this has led to large horizontal cracks around the middle of it. Original plug - slightly-indented letters. No paint. Concrete base exposed all round by about 6". In centre of uncut Italian ryegrass field with easy access over a gate from the lane. Excellent views S/W/N/NE.

A rather better view than other TPs in this area and worth the short walk in a muddy field. The tower of the village church looks ready to fall down!

The trig is in the middle of a field. There were no crops, but it was very muddy. A large chunk of the pillar is missing and there are severe cracks running through it.
