Parked at field entrance at 90deg bend in minor road, followed field boundary to pillar on SW side hedgerow. Becoming a bit overgrown, cut back some thorn and bramble. Top has damage to one corner otherwise it's fine. Original cap has been retained, deeply indented lettering; rear sight hole open. Extensive views S and W.

Boo hiss. lost maroon walking pole with a cork walking stick handle. Called back again four hours later but no sign of it so either I left it somewhere else or maybe someone found it. If anyone on here found it my number is 07988 741804 Yes it's a fair view indeed. In fact that may be understatement. It's a splendid view across to Sugar Loaf.

Original plan today was to head up Sugar Loaf. Cloud was down to 200m when I got off the train so I decided on a circular walk over this way. Good idea because it was snowing by the time I got here. Not quite the manner how I thought Id end up bagging my 500th T:UK pillar. Some damage to a top corner means I mark this one down as slightly damaged.

Trig is fairly obvious as you approach and is in good condition, but the spot is fairly uninteresting.

Left lane at corner by yellow salt box and followed tractor tracks through grass. Hidden from view on approach by bushes. Would have been out in open originally.

The pillar is highly visible but needs a bit of 'creativity' to reach it. I parked in the gateway on the road bend to the south-east to access the field. Soon came across the farmer doing some fence work but he readily gave me permission to continue on to the trig. Everything in good condition and still has an original plug. Nice view point.

We parked on the bend next to a grit bin and followed the hedgeline to the trig. Trig south of hedge, with Fb facing south. Good views (better than fair!). Plug with heavily indented lettering.

White pillar in long grass. Don't know where the Fair View name comes from, but the view to Sugar Loaf isn't bad!
