Easy bag after a visit to the splendid Twelve Apostles stone circle. I parked by the church and followed the road round to the entrance to the field which was quite wet. Pillar has horizontal cracking slightly below mid-height. FB in place, filled plug.

Didn't like the sound of coinea's log and wondered if this would be baggable. In the end easy bag. Mr TJR waited at field entrance whilst I hopped over gate and followed field boundary to trig. Large farm building now on site in adjacent field perhaps this was what was under construction when coinea visited?

Think gateway to field has been widened recently, padlocked gates with security warning. Signs of industrial activity on south side of field and large transit van parked there.

Quick getaway from the ground (QoS v RR) up the A76 to easily find this pillar in the saintly named area of the Twelve Apostles. Plastic cap in place, and one sight-hole open.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there with its cracks.

Best to park at church. Mildly amusing to record my 666th trig log at a place called Twelve Apostles.

Down at Mabie Forest for a days biking. Handy trig for the return journey. Was sorely tempted to try TP4677 but weather and fatigue got the better of me.

Cracked with concrete plug replacement. Foundations exposed, usual bovine cause I expect. Fences to field are barbed now. Good view of See Morris Hill.

Traditional trig. Top cemented. An irregular crack about 4 inches above FB level. In a hedged and fenced field but possible to get through unbarbed fence.
