(1413) Pillar marked as destroyed in September of 1995. Moved to it's new location not long after? And first logged as found on here in the late 2000s. Called in at Osmanthorpe Manor twice during the day, but no one was about unfortunately. Pillar readily visible from several vantage points. Looks to be in fine condition. REVISIT: 23.6.19 Called again today, and got lucky. Managed to catch someone as they was about to drive off. They wasn't the home owners, but they gave me a contact number to ring. Permission to visit the pillar freely given. GR via the T:UK app states it's been moved about 7 metres from it's original location. All in good condition, though a slight lean is noticeable. Pillar history: Built on the 26th of October 1948, cost not in records. Last maintained by the OS in November of 1982.

I too viewed this pillar in the rear garden of the manor house from the adjacent bridleway. It appears to be in good condition despite the move. The FB number was readable by digital zooming on my picture.

Pillar is now in Osmanthorpe Manor, in the orchard behind. Occupier (its rented) readily gave a tour - pillar tilting but otherwise relocated well. CBM on front left corner of house.

Passed by on a circular walk out from Southwell via here, Edingley and Halam (and The Waggon, good ale, iffy service). Residents out - neighbours confirmed the farmer has recently retired and the property is now rented - decided not to annoy the new tenants by trespassing through their garden, and viewed from bridleway. Looks happy in its new position and in good condition.

The chap who lives at the property was good enough to show me to the pillar. we then discussed their construction and how they were used. Then chatted about levelling. On leaving noticed a cut mark on the house. Another conversation started and I was able to show him the height above mean sea level of the mark.

I'm the shy sort, and it was around teatime, so I didn't want to disturb the householders, so I restricted myself to taking a photo from the adjacent footpath.

First of two trigs walking the Southwell Trail. Parked in Kirklington, found Osmansthorpe Manor, knocked on the back door and the gentleman very helpfully took us to the trig in the back garden. Trig was in good condition though there seemed to be slight lean. Near to to the trig is an unusual way marking post. Wish I had a trig in my back garden. The coordinates on this website are for the new position in this garden.

5/6 Met the "Lady of the Manor" who was just leaving and was readily granted access. She said that two of their dogs are buried next to the pillar. The pillar was brought to its resting place on a low loader ffrom its original site.

I did as others have done and asked for permission at the house. The lady who answered the side door readily agreed to my wandering across the garden to get to the pillar. It is actually in excellent condition and still retains an original indented letter plug.

Most unusual,and I obviously should have read the logs first as I concluded that it had been destroyed. The farmer must be a trigophile - possibly unique!

A walk from Southall to TP at Green Ridges then on to this one.The footpath from Kirklington went passed garden at rear of house with Trig easily visible.Took decision to climb gate into orchard as i could not see anyone around to ask.Pillar has a slight lean but the location it now sits in is good,thanks to good detective work by previous TP loggers this can now be viewed again'

Viewed by permission of the friendly farmer. Plug intact, one sighting hole open; maybe a slight lean. Was told that the pillar was originally in a hedgeline and moved to its new home with a JCB when the hedge was dug up.

Knocked on door to ask for permission to view the trig, but unfortunatly no one home. Viewed it from the ROW next door to the house - Looked like a happy trig in its new home! Will try and visit next time we are heading this way on our trigging adventures.

vgc (slightly leaning?), metal cap, shallow letters. Back garden of large house, visited with kind permission of householder - farmer who got the OK from OS to remove it. FB is visible from RoW to E, approx 15m back. Well found! and thanks to Ted for the tip-off. Quick detour from the A1 on the way north. Left GPS in the car so still no grid ref.

It has been found! My friend Keith while out geocaching noticed a TP in the garden of Osmanthorpe Manor and told me about it. I visited it today (photos to follow). TP can be seen through the garden hedge from the footpath passing along the property boundary. Over 20 years ago I had locked horns professionally with the owner of the property over the future of a local school of which he was Chair of Governors. I was a tad reluctant to ask permission to visit the TP in his garden, but decided he would probably have forgotten me - which he had! I called at the house (door at the side to rear of building as no answer from front door) and he and dog happily accompanied me to the TP. It is in excellent condition with all bits intact. He had it moved from original position with OS approval as it was in the way of agricultural activities. He said he had one previous visitor - but obviously not someone actively involved in this website. He is happy to show visitors to the TP. Grid Ref derived from Memory Map as no GPS

It's on my Landranger map [I really must get a new one!] but the huge grain field was devoid of any signs of a pillar. Sholud have read the other logs first.....
