Slightly boggy ground, and deep ruts in the adjacent field to get over, but otherwise quite easy to access. I entered the field via the gate on the access track to the farm to save one fence climb, only to find one more close to the pillar, but easy.

September Camp 2015: Goathland. Bagged on way home. Convenient car park which is P&D 1. From ROW to West this requires a couple of fence hops which were easy then 100 yards across soggy ground to pillar. No one around. Nice area, another camping season ends on a high.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 29th March 1952 costing 20.19s.6d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SE97/27 within the Bridlington block during 1954. Levelled for height also in 1954. Last maintained by the OS in June 1984. SITE VISIT: Overall approach from southwest. Mapped car park on east side of A169 at SE852937 is pay and display. Short stop for a few minutes didn't warrant finding out the cost. North from car park to Old Wife's Way, 200m ESE along there then NE diagonally across grazing field to trig which stands just east of fence. Pillar in fair condition. Spider centre plugged with smooth brown resin. Flush bracket faces west ~271 towards fence. Vented through south sight hole. Open outlook very limited considering the location.

Visible and easily accessible. Access from footpath to east by striding over two low wire fences and across some boggy land. Pillar is in good condition. Views somewhat restricted by nearby woodland and comparison with those from car park.
