(925) Located inside the entrance to a bridleway. Can be spotted from the road. Just enough room to park up at the location. Litter strewn area, that smells like it's been used for a toilet by every passer-by unfortunately. Pillar moved from it's original location (as others have noted, that wouldn't have been easy), and missing it's metal work. The top especially has considerable damage, but still she lives on.

Shouldn't really count this one as not only has it been moved (assume as a barrier to cars and bikes accessing the footpath) but also no metalwork left. Still, glad the body has been kept.

SE from Hickleton Spring pillar along field edge to Red Hill Ln. Followed the tarmac NE past a water tower to Bilham Lodge. Took the drive that turns behind Bilham Lodge to join a farm track leading NE along field boundary, eventually passing Brodsworth estate office to emerge onto the B6422 / Hooton Ln. Continued E along the road to the 5-way junction where I took Church Ln towards Adwick-le-Street. Pillar can then be found at the entrance to the bridleway beside a minor pull-in. As noticed by others THIS TRIG HAS BEEN MOVED FROM ITS ORIGINAL LOCATION. FB and spider missing with significant damage to the top. Still, better that than it having been consigned to trig heaven. No views due to hedge and trees. Continued NW along bridleway where views soon open out across gently undulating arable fields. At junction of bridleways I turned N up the hill towards wind turbines and Hampole Wood. Followed bridleway W through the woods until it turns N where the woods are signed as private. Here I continued W along the edge of the wood and field to join the PROW that heads S across the fields to Lound Hill. At the farm I turned W along the bridleway and returned to Hooton Pagnall via Narrow Balk PROW. Surely the condition should be MOVED as this is crucial to anybody wishing to visit this pillar.

Well found TED and very nice of the mover to stand it upright. Its nice to be able to look in the site holes without crawling on all fours. No spider cap or FB. On large base. As the top is also quite damaged it gives a nice insight into how these were constructed.

Was driving home from a boat party at Sprotborough when I passed this trigpoint. It is literally 5 paces off the main road on the outskirts of Brodsworth, heading towards Adwick-le-Street. Don't recall noticing it before, but apparently some people think it may have been moved here from another location in the past few years. Trig isn't really the prettiest - very chipped and damaged, with no ignificant views in any direction. Brodsworth itself is a picturesque little place, surrounded by fields and copses, but the trig is a disappointment. I wouldn't have been impressed if I'd undertaken a long walk just to get to this... however, as I was merely driving by it seemed rude not to log it!

I had intended to walk from here back home via the trig at Barnsdale, but curiousity killed the cat so on a snowy November afternoon I took my daughter Melissa and parked up - easy to spot heading towards Brodsworth Hall as the trig is bang at the start of the path and you can even park at the road side as these pictures show. Ain't she cute the little trigbagger!

This must have been fifteenth visit but the first time since I started this game. Used to do a New Years Day run/walk each year from Goldthorpe called the Hangover Hike and passed this forlorn specimen on the route. Shame it has been treated thus but still intersting to see the way things were properly constructed in the past.

Easily spotted en route to Brodsworth Hall, not quite so easily spotted on return journey. Probably the most-vandalised pillar I have seen, but it is interesting as it shows how much of a pillar is below surface. Judging by the huge rocks placed in entrances to adjacent fields, this pillar seems to have been put to use as a deterrent to off-roaders.

Initially checked the original site; no sign of it - assumed farmerised. Looked along the margins of wood; nothing found. Views of the B&Q Distribution Centre and the A1(M). Then by chance discovered the new location - at junction of bridleway and minor road at SE514076. All sighting holes open; FB intact but spider missing. Plinth still attached - someone must have gone to a lot of trouble to relocate this - good for them!
