Route as many other people, around the field boundary next to the power station and then round the broken fence.

(2) Access to this pillar isn't the easiest, but it can be gained via a section of broken fence. Visible from the other side of the bank. Revisited 30/7/17 to capture the flush bracket which I had failed to log back in April. The nettles around it had been trampled down, so somebody has recently paid this a call. Came a different route this time - walked along the Humber bank - as opposed to walking the boundary of the field adjacent to the power station. Pillar history: Built on the 14th of June 1939, at a cost of 4 11s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in August of 1987.

walk along the sea wall from the south east until just before there is a sharp left hand turn and trig can be seen about 200m to the left. Just before this left bend, bear down round the end of the ditch and squeeze round the bit of broken fence end. then walk along the embankment between two ditches, 200metres to the trig. Aesthetically pleasing surface texture and also yellow lichen.

Sadly could not find the "plank" or "boulder" mentioned below. Once left to my own devices, I crossed the dyke adjacent the coastal path @ TA 23944 13151 - very easy. This is mostly across a grassy bridge, now fenced off. Thankfully a corner of the spiky fencing has collapsed allowing easy access. I parked at TA 246 114 as a barrier stops further progress by car. However, there were cars parked at the end of this track where it joins the coastal path @ TA 248 122 and a sign (attached) showing current access which appears to be to the NW @ TA 216 130 - not that this leads to the cars I saw parked!

The pillar that started it all for me. It's located on land that belonged to the company I worked for, and after a nearby lunch with other retirees, I walked along the Humber bank sea wall past the factory to view this pillar again. A strong, cold wind was blowing off the Humber.

Had a terrific 2 mile walk along the river bank to the pillar,plenty of wildlife to see and hear,was content to view the pillar from across the ditch,looking at the mudflats you can see the potential dangers,the pillar looks in good condition,it could do with a bit of a prune on one side,it would stand out really well,enjoyed this one even with the smell of industry all around.

Tide in, deep water and mud. The 1:50,000 map is deceiving as pillar is definitely marked as being to the north of the creek. unfortunatly the reality is the pillar is to the south to which there is no access unless you want to risk the mud in the creek, which we didn't. We should have read the earlier logs before attempting this one! We were left to satisfy ourselves with a lovely 4" NRA marker in bay 17 on the sea wall.

Perhaps I cheated on this one, I could just observe it from the opposite side of the stream/ditch amongst the rampant undergrowth, but felt my health and safety outweighed any risk of trying to reach it.

Plug intact; pillar looking a bit overgrown and neglected. Went for a direct crossing of the creek; not too wide near the security fence but didn't quite make it - deep mud! 8-()

many thanks to Brisey for his advice on the best way of getting to the trigpoint which was spot on,I left the sea wall south east of the trig and crossed the smaller ditch with the help of a well placed boulder which takes a foot of the jump and makes it just possible without getting wet feet,from here it's a easy walk to the trig with only a smaller ditch to cross which is a easy jump,on the way back I found a nice plank of wood which just reached across the ditch and saved the jump,In spite of all the industry around I liked the area and had a nice walk along the sea wall.

Could just see it poking out of the nettles on the bankside. Unable to find a good way to cross the creek for a close up look.

(214) One of those trigs that you just have to bag because it looks so easy, yet is quite inaccessable due to the 6ft wide creek. A large plank like piece of driftwood was put into service, and although it was 6" shorter than would have been ideal it did provide a dry crossing. Trig appears to have a lean on it, and this is also noted on OS database (29deg). Otherwise intact.

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, on bank somewhat overtopped by bank protecting adjacent indust complex. An easy walk, scenic in its way - pity that drain isn't quite jumpable - another foot would have done it :-( wet feet again

Disappointing. Pillar is other side of creek, approached from NW, which looked just too wide for me to jump. Needs a long plank or one of those poles the dutch use to get across ditches.

I accompanied Father Ted when he logged this TP, introducing me to this pastime. The weather was poor then, so a revisit in better weather seemed like a good idea.

Rather bizarrely this trig is on land owned by the company I work for. When I was visiting the site therefore my colleague Brian kindly offered to accompany me to the trig. It sits about 20 meters inland from the sea wall on a spit land with a creek either side of it.
