From the entrance to the caravan site along road and over gate to Trig which was hidden among high nettles , and sits between two fences, the trig is in good condition with a filled cap , could only see three closed sight holes and the FB faces 60` Not much of a view

Parked by the house on the corner to the west, from there it's an easy hop over the gate (watch out for barbed wire) on the other side of the road and the pillar is about 100m up the hedgerow between two sets of fencing ... bit of a strange one as the ground to the west is quite a bit higher than the pillar! Had to have a word with some caravaners packing up in the campsite on the other side of the hedge - didn't want them reporting a strange bloke appearing thro the hedge taking pictures to camp reception!!

A Sunday afternoon walk whilst holidaying in Bishops Castle. 100 yards up the fenceline from the gateway. Clearly visible from the road as well if the field has animals in it.

Between wire field boundaries with FB facing NE into sheep pasture. Some curious, or more probably hungry, sheep keeping a close eye on me. Most of the vegetation died back, cleared some old nettle stalks. Cap missing, asphalt plug; rear sight hole open.

The nettles have returned with a vengence. Nice view looking away from the pillar though however.

for the 2nd day running I failed on the first visit of the day, this time due to it being lost in thick wet forestry. However, this was easy, over one gate and up filed edge. A few huge nettles to trample for the last 3 feet!

Was camping at the adjoining camp site so tried to find this - took us ages due to the nettles which were nearly 7 feet tall! We found it in the end though using GPS and looking under nettles.

The barbed wire clad farm gate was an obstacle. Did a circular walk from the town and some excellent distant views of Wales and Shropshire Hills.

Intact and in good condition. Easy hop off the road, but parking is a wee walk away.
