Rather out of the way along, often, single-track roads. The pillar was in the border of a wheat field and looked very different from the photo 8 yrs ago covered by ivy and the hedge much denser. The ivy was removed and generally tidied up.

Saw we would be passing this trig on the way back from holiday so decided to go for it. First one built into a wall I have seen. Unable to scale the wall to note the flush bracket but condition of pillar still looks as per photos on the log. Lovely views from here.

We parked in a layby to the north west, opposite the gate giving access to the field (unmown hay). The trig is on the hedgeline with the FB facing east, although access was easier from the west side of the hedge (linseed field). Plug with indented lettering.
