Third of six during a bike ride in the Lincoln area, and second of three on/near the B1398 i.e. along the escarpment that runs northwards from the city. Attempted to access by climbing over metal gate ont he road, this put me at the back of a conifer plantation and alongside a fence, 20 yards the other side of which was the trig. In full view of the farmyard from here and I didn't fancy trying to outrun a farmer in cycling shoes so settle for that. Looked to be in decent nick.

(114) The field was in full bloom, and only the very top of the pillar was - barely - visible. Will revisit at some point to fully complete this one. 12/8/17 REVISIT: As I arrived, there was a couple of chaps in the field, who freely gave permission for me to visit the pillar. The farmer also pointed me in the direction of the remains of a Roman archway which is hidden in the hedgerow of the very same field. All very interesting. And a perfect ending to a good day out trigging. Pillar history: Built on the 30th of October 1938, at a cost of 8 6s 6d. Last maintained by the OS in October of 1980.

Joint visit with Carole. Easy access from road to west and pillar is quite visible. We used the field edge until opposite the pillar then carefully made our way to the pillar being conscious of being seen from Castle Farm. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug (also has a collection of metal objects on the top).

Also accessed from the B1398, but at this time of year, the pillar stands in a bare, muddy field, made worse by today's rain.

In a fiedl easily accessed through a gate off the B1398. Surrounded by some rocks of oolitic limestone. All intact - plug has slightly-indented letters. All sightholes open. No paint. Some views westwards but most blocked by hedges or trees.
