First of six during a bike ride in the Lincoln area. Accessed at the top of the small field, supposedly a bridleway across it but very overgrown, clearly doesn't see much traffic. Buried in the hedge but easy enough to find. Not much to be said for the location.

(366) A nice and simple one, which is always good. Parked up at the barn and then followed the PROW to the pillar. Situated in the hedge, but it is clear to view. The top is partially obscured though, but nothing major. Original plug. Pillar history: Built on the 13th of September 1948, at a cost of 8 6s 2d. Last maintained by the OS in November of 1980.

Second of five weekend trigs on way to visit old uni mate. Parked near big barn and aerial just past railway bridge and found trig in hedge without too much difficulty, once past the piles of dumped building rubble and soil.

Parked on roadside opposite then took bridleway northeast. Trig in hedge close to pile of rotting hay bales. Could prove mucky underfoot if wet but thankfully dry on this occasion.

Parked on edge of concrete farm yard at TF 0117 7188 and walked just 100m or so along bridleway. Agreed there is a lot of ash on the ground but no adverse effect on the pillar. Original cap with shallow intended letters; FB faces SSE; SSE and WSW sightholes plugged, others not observed.

Passing by with my walking group, I noted this pillar is no longer hidden by straw bales, the charred ground showing that they had caught fire. No fire damage to the pillar or the hedge in which stands is apparent.

Easily accessible but hidden from view by large pile of hay bales. Joint visit with Carole. We used footpath to access field and deviated to find pillar hidden in hedge behind hay bales. Everything in good order and still retains an original plug.

The baled straw has accumulated again, but the pillar was still reasonably easy to spot. GR to 10m only.

The hungry cattle have evidently eaten much of the silage over winter so the trig was easily accessible.
