(1290) My 200th extant pillar. Parked up down Orchard Grove, and walked the PRoW down to the location. Pillar visible from some distance away, and located just off the track and in the field. Easily reached via tractor tracks. All appears good, though the spider area looks like it's been repaired in the past? Plug non original.

Had to approach this one along the footpath from the longer south east route due to the lack of parking at the northern end. There is a shorter way in from the new houses via the wood. Pillar in relatively good condition considering it's location in the field. Well done that farmer.

Third time lucky for this one, previous times no chance, the field was covered in crops, the second one I waded round in circles through oilseed, in shorts, and was covered in red spots. Didn't know it was such an irritant. Today it was unmissable coming to it from the north on the lane approaching it. I had asked for permission at the nearest farm, the lady said it was no problem. No spectacular views, Maltby pit tip and a power station on the far horizon towards the SE. Best to do this trig in winter.

Top of this one was just about visible in a field full of golden wheat. Farmer busy harvesting in adjacent field so it was a quick dash along tractor line that lead directly to pillar, note details, take photo and then on my way !!

Parked on estate in Maltby then approached from the south via the Rotherham Ringway path. The trig lies just off the path to the E although easily visible today. A 20 yard dash into the field allows access. Plastic plug, nice attention has been paid to the FB and good overall condition.

Parked on Lilly Hall Road to the south opposite lane leading up to trip, which is tarmac for about a third of the way. Did notice while I was walking to the trig that you can park on Orchard Grove which as a footpath onto the lane. This is the closest you can park to the trig.

As you head south from Foredoles Farm it's easily noticeable (in winter) as you round the bend in the track. Easy walk however very muddy in winter. It's on the East side of the track about 20m into the field. Nice black and white flush bracket facing west. Someone has scratched names into the plastic cap.
