Parked on grass verge next to Wilson Farm.Took the opportunity to seek permission from local farmers who were very obliging. Access is easy and no cattle to contend with. The trig is in good condition. Great views. Autumn is well on its way following a prolonged hot summer season.

Visible and although on private land quite accessible. I approached from the footpath to the east and just had to straddle one low barbed wire fence. I actually only got to within about five yards of the pillar. It was a case of bull one, wimp zero. There was a sizeable bull near to the trig laying down quietly chewing the cud but as I approached he decided to get up and head towards me. Not wishing it to be a re-run of a one on one Pamplona bull run I beat a hasty retreat! I was after all not on a public access area so did not discuss his temprement with him. I could have hid in the nearby reservoir building but did not have provisions for an overnight stay. Pillar looked to be in good condition and there were some nice all round views.
