A very long walk there and back from the Church, the pillar is vandalised and there was some type of instruments on the pillar when I visited and a van parked in the field.

THE EARTH IS FLAT written on the sides...wonder who painted it, rather badly unfortunately. More white paint need so it's not as patchy.

Had to find this one from memory as I had neglected to bring any maps and had dropped my phone / GPS in a muddy puddle at Eston Beacon. Parked in the picnic area to the west and up through the woods. Pillar located just off the footpath but surrounded with ferns, limited views.

Walked from Longbeck rail st. Pillar has a chunk of conc missing from a top edge & also a top corner - spider has OS metal cap. The pillar has recently been painted white but with masking to form alphabetical characters giving: 'THE EARTH IS FLAT' (one word on each side face) - the letter L has been painted over. Views from the trig this time of year are quite good (low bracken, etc), The Sea & Cleveland's Matterhorn can be seen.

Easy to locate and access. Approached from New Marske and a short sharp climb is needed from that direction. While the pillar is sited in shrub there are great views from the nearby ridge. Today was clear and you could see up the NE coats as far as Sunderland and beyond. A nice visit.

East ascent from footpath at top of Pontac Road. Steps led up to edge of wood. 214 I think. Trig was buried in heather. I used the GPS to find it. A hint, follow the edge of the field where the track brings you up to. Cross into the next field and carry on for approx 10 metres and the pillar will be off to your left.

Made a mess of this came without them correct map card for my satmap so working to grid ref. I’d got the 25000/1 maps of the NYMs but not my 50000/1 map of the complete country. My initial log was made from the android app – I made the error of logging the details on the Airy Hill page – shows that errors can easily be made trying to work with a phone out in the field. Either that or the onset of dementia!

Walked in from north, turn left at the owl and take steep staircase. Views towards Roseberry Topping. There is a large anenometer tower on the summit plateau. Discussion with local dog walkers suggest that any wind farm development is currently on hold.

There’s room to park at the end of the residential road north of the wood. From there, there is a well marked path, with steps on the steepest part, south through the wood. Turn east when you reach the top and follow the wide track along the field’s edge to the pillar which is set on a small ‘hillock’. It’s mostly obscured by ferns but once through them, it’s fairly clear on the other side. The pillar has a couple of large chips out of the top edge at the end of two of the spider’s ‘arms’ and the spider it’s self, has many striations cut into it. These look old and there aren’t matching cuts in the centre plug so maybe they were there from the beginning. The views from the pillar are best to the south as the northern aspect is obscured by trees but there are some good views to the north, looking out over the coast from the track a few yards west of the pillar.

Slight damage to top with fading graffiti. Plug intact; puzzled over the cuts on the spider (see photo)- evidently made with the plug removed. Most likely made by placing the tribrach heavily onto the top of the pillar - probably not in the approved OS manner 8-) Views along the coast from Saltburn, Tees and towards Hartlepool, also Redcar and Billingham with Roseberry Topping in the opposite direction.
