(604) Busy road with limited parking options. Ended up parking at the entrance to Low Farm. Asked about permission to visit the pillar at Kennels Farm, but they wasn't the land owners. Said it would be OK to visit though, and gave instructions on how best to visit the pillar. Field empty and muddy, and the pillar is buried up to the FB number, which required a little digging out. Spider off centre.

Parked in farm entrance to W of kennels and walked along the lane and along the field edge. Tried to excavate a bit more of the FB but the ground was parched and rock-hard.

Parked off Grove Road a little way was west of pillar. Pillar is in hedge and a fair amount of vegetation was removed for the photograph.A bit of earth scraping gave a reasonable view of the sunken flush bracket number.

Revisit for photos. vgc, metal cap, with neat large shallow letters (Orkney-style - not deep as I noted in 2003), spider significantly off-centre. N edge of copse, 100m E of field entrance (where I parked). Easy to see in winter. Ground frozen, needed some determined trowel work to remove the inch of soil to see the FB no.

Easily accessible in field hedge. Finding a parking spot proved less easy. Looks as though some farm machinery has struck it recently as there as one or two small gouges near the top. The flus bracket was partly below earth level and had to be dug out to expose the number. Pillar still has an original plug.

Parked at kennels/cattery entrance on south side of lane.Use field entrance almost opposite and head up line of wood until pillar emerges after approx 50 yards.

Not as close to the road as the 1:50k suggests. Flush bracket well below soil level, had to do a bit of digging to get to it, found a 2p coin buried right next to the flush bracket, left it there for the next person to find, lol.

Easy to find. Plug intact. FB re-excavated. Seemed an odd place to site a trig but maybe they were running out of places to put them around Retford.

agree with rhayader wanderer, the parking is difficult as the road is narrow and parking a bit iffy.found gap in hedge and easy walk to trig.

Parked 250m west beyond kennels at an entry with private road no parking visible further down busy road and blind corners leave other options very limited. Gap in hedge 100m to west is the key

Had difficulty finding this;like previous loggers, I assumed it was nearer to the road than it actually is! It's actually partly buried and deeply hidden in the hedgerow on side of newly-harvested arable field. All sightholes below soil level. No significant paint visible. Some views NW towards Retford. Also hard to park....

I was working from a print-out of the OS Get-a-Map site, so I was expecting to walk up the field and wood edge away from the road. The FB number was again partially buried. GR to 10m only.

Quite difficult to find as the land ranger maps suggests it is close to the road when it is actually at the side of the field. The explorer map shows it more accurately but we didn't have it with us at the time. However Chris (lead trig point spotter of the HEATHENS team) managed to find it, as there photograph shows. FB half buried, plug with indented lettering.
