Acessible and visible. Not exactly on footpath but possible to reach it from one. I parked in gateway to south where path joins road. Slanted north-west up filed to go through open gateway just below woodland. Then headed upward with fence and wood on my right. Pillar in good condition. Some nice all round views from this point.
