(392) The oldest trig-pillar within the historic boundaries of Lincolnshire? Parked up down Vicarage Lane in Harmston, and walked the PRoW down to the trig. All good, and the Pillar still retains some residual white paint. No 'S' on the Flush Bracket. Pillar history: Built on the 20th of March 1936, at a cost of £22 4s 1d. Last maintained by the OS in March of 2000.

Easy 600m walk along public footpath northwards from Harmston village. Pillar sits in NE quadrant of ’crossroads’ between N-S path and E-W farm track. Metal cap with shallow letters. Flush bracket 2952 (without ’S’ prefix). Strange warmish but misty day so no views to speak of but they may not be all that great even in good conditions! Position logged from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

A short walk along a dry footpath between the villages of Waddington to the north and Harmston to the south. The pillar is roughly mid-point and easily reached from either end. As has previously been noted, there is no ‘S’ prefix on the flush bracket number (and, incidentally, it is next in sequence to a T/P close to my home in Bedfordshire – Dunstable Down 2951 – some 144km south as the crow flies). The pillar is in good condition with all it’s metalwork intact. The spider and centre plug have acquired a distinctive and quite pleasant bright green patina whilst the pillar its self once had a nice coat of white paint. The landscape is flat and open farmland with the Lincoln Cliff directly to the west. Today the sun was shining but as most days here, quite a strong wind was blowing.

Feeling lazy and drove up the farm track to this one. It was also very wet so felt it was the best plan of attack. Piller in good condition and painted white, flush bracket has leading "S" missing.

Raining in stair-rods! Fortunately, the pillar is on the side of a farm track about 200 yards off the A607, so I got saturated rather than drowned. No S number on flush bracket. All fully intact including the central plug. There would be good views westwards from here on a fine day - which this very definitely wasn't! The pillar is one of the whitest I've seen for ages - could have had a recent coat of paint.
