Parked as previous visitors by the locked barrier. Although buried in a hedge it was a relatively easy spot in early March but I guess would be harder in the summer.

Nipped under the gate and eventually spotted the pillar in the hedgerow. Site much improved since last visit in 2001, then the surrounding ground was a parking area for construction vehicles and the pillar was buried under old doors! Great views of Ferrybridge Power Station.

Parked in the gate entrance to the field. Remembered to bring secateurs and did a spot of gardening to hack away the worst of the undergrowth that was hiding the trig from view. Trig spot height not shown on Landranger or Explorer maps.

Plenty of (rough) places to park just off road. Climbed gate and walked along field edge. Pillar is in hedge and surrounded by rubbish - not the best of places to find a trig. Rural location with quite extensive views, power station most eminent.

Difficult to spot on a drive-by in winter, probably impossible in summer.
The view from the pillar Ferrybridge. The two large trucks on the A1(M) flyover are dwarfed by the power station.

Relatively easy to access with a small bit of trespass but somewhat hidden in the hedge which at this time of the year is in full foliage. I actually parked in a gateway just to the west so that all I had to do was straddle a barbed wire barrier - easy to do because the gateway has been blocked off with a mound of debris. I then just walked east along the hedge line to the pillar. As I say, at this time of the year, it is well camouflaged in the hedge. Everything in good order and still retains an original plug. Not the best location for views.

(35m). Leg 2 of 4 trig 11.8km linear walk from Glasshoughton Rail Station to Knottingley Rail Station. This located along Sheepwalk Lane near Townville. Trouble is, I had incorrect info with me. I had written it on my plans as missing, and I had the wrong location, so I didn't even stumble on it. (senile would be a good word) Will return.

Heading east towards the power station from Townville look for a red gate on the north side of the road. Once through the gate head right up the fold of the hill and the trig is in the hedgerow. What I like about this one is that it has a safe home all traffic oblivious to its hiding place. Sneaky fellow, only the committed will really ever see him. Be sure to give him a knowing tap!

After Holywell Wood walked along the road through Townville to this trig. After the houses end, pass the Reduce Speed Now sign to find a gate on the left (see photo), walk up a short incline to find the trig - today partly hidden by mounds of muck and amongst the hedges.
