Parked at masts and walked up to find the farmer was harvesting the field containing the pillar, so on this occasion had to be content to view it from the footpath.

Along the PRoW and a short walk into the field which fortunately appeared to be the only one around without cows and calves. I could have been wrong however as the visibility was down to 100 metres or so due to the mist.

A late lunch in Loftus after a 6 pillar morning. Legs soon back into action for the climb to Upton. Left bike at comms mast and a short step to pillar. Disappointingly grey to properly appreciate the surrounds.

Walked along the Cleveland Way from Hinderwell Beacon. The top was in cloud as I approached from Staithes but cleared by the time Id climbed to the trigpoint. Bullocks in the field. Would be great view from here on a clear day. Surprised by the height of the cliffs and the steep climb. Continued onto Loftus
