Taking prior logs as a guideline that this is an ex-trig pillar. Drove by....

Not much here, parked by abandoned farm and boarded up houses to take a look at abandoned hill :-(

A well documented casualty, so looked down on site from afar (240m spot height 900 metres west.)

Pillar is missing, the hill upon which it stood is missing too. This is an area of sandhills and the ridge you see today is one of a pair of parallel ridges. The pillar was on the other. Now after the aggregates industry have passed, there is a flat field here. Still on my 1992 1:50000 map and the current 1:25000 still shows the hill with a leveled spot height. The area is shown as forested on the 1923 map.

Lang Hill Once aptly named - looked like the hill in the background. Now a flat field.

Will return with GPS and 10 digit grid ref. But I dont expect to find it; theres no hiding place. No sign on the ridge driving by to South and I parked to West on minor road and went along ridge then down to trees/buildings. The contours on LR72 (c) 1994 for the ridge dont look right either; the back of the trees is a fairly flat field before the ridge.

This was a sandpit back in 1987. Before the days of GPSs, and it was difficult to ascertain exactly where it would have stood. It remained on LR72 for some considerable time after this. FB S3603 kindly supplied by OS. Destroyed 9/86 (OS)
