En route to Portishead. Old Man now believes I am completely mad asking him to drive off, then immediately back on to, the M5. A short pause at the traffic lights on the roundabout allowed for good observation of the site. Back on the M5, you realise it must have had quite good views. [FB for logging purposes only].

OS records destroyed March 1967. M5 was extended south from J16 in stages between 1967 and 1977. Pillar was probably a casualty of those extensions.

This popped up on the satnav as I was making the turn into Bristol. Indicated as being a few metres into what is now the roundabout, obviously lost to road constrction.

The pillar no longer exists; its site is now within the roundabout of Junction 17 of the M5. This part of the motorway was built in 1969. North of the motorway the Hollywood Tower Estate has historical connections with the early days of aviation in the area and is currently owned by the Bristol and Clifton Zoological Society who are planning to build a new zoo on the site. To the south of the motorway is an extensive modern retail area and I am off to do some Christmas Shopping.

at least this time I had a reason for going right round the roundabout.

Brief pause at the traffic lights was all that is needed to see the fate of this one. Could have done without the roadworks on the Westbury road afterwards though

I have used J17 to exit the M5 many times without realising it was the site of this TP. So the next time, I dropped down the slip road, paused at the traffic lights to observe the position (just on the roundabout on the south side of the overbridge) and then returned to the M5 for my journey further west.
