Parked at the cattle grid, layby may have been better. Up the RoW, then veered off over a field gate and across a silage field. Pillar sits in a corner of the field minding its own business. Composite plug replaces the metal cap; RHS sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views, Pennines particularly good.

From lay-by just before cattle grid. Up track and then veered off to left to enter field. All gates open despite sheep in field.

Visited this spot after a trip to near by Rutter Falls which is in an incredibly beautiful setting. Took the wrong path (forgot my map) up the side of Heights Farm instead of Heights Cottages , so made hard work of it.The pillar is sensibly placed in the corner of a field with views looking down on the Settle- Carlisle Railway

Parked at the cattle grid. Farm is for sale and apparently empty at the moment. Visit was punctuated with low flying jets and an army helicopter nearby.

I asked at the farm for permission to visit and this was readily given. I was directed to the gate that gave direct access into the field in which the pillar is situated. Located in the corner of the field and hopefully nicely out of harms way. In good condition but the original metal plug has been replaced by a plastic substitute. Another lovely location with good views of the surrounding hills.

Parked opposite entrance to Heights cottages near cattle grid. Walked up footpath to north and then over gate into field to east. At the top of the field where there is a good view of the Settle-Carlisle railway, I walked into the left-hand field and then followed the west side of the wall (minding the pats) to the trig in the NE corner of the field. Pillar in generally good nick with ?metal replacement cap; FB faces WNW; SSW sighthole open, others plugged although ESE not properly observed. All in all a very pleasant little walk.

The farmer was about so I asked permission to visit - readily granted albeit with a puzzled look for making such a strange request. Trig in NE corner of field, plug replaced, views limited today.
