Nipped up the track to bag it in between monitoring Bronze D of E groups from my parking spot on Laxton Common. Pillar is just outside the fenced Golden Hill compound (NW edge), skirted the perimeter and a field edge. Pleasant location I thought.

(1398) Easy parking. Took the footpath through a field of chest height oil seed rape. Flies and bugs galore, not good. Came back via the track leading to/from the reservoir - much better! Pillar located close to, but just outside of, the fence at the NW corner of compound. Plug non original, but all else is good.

Uw captivating, why unknown. No views, ugly mast.... but did not want to leave. Silence. Nothingness. Definitely a female pillar Veggi bagger. A cuddle before departing. Feel the urge to return with a picnic and keep her company for a while.

A joint visit with Carole. Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition,although the original plug is long gone and replaced by a plastic insert disc.

Last of 16 for the day. 6pm still hot and sunny. So what are the lasting impressions of a day’s trigpointing around Retford? Well a hot summer’s day with no cloud but uninspiring trigpoints – lots of difficult driving up dusty farm tracks full of pot holes and in some cases no tarmac. The day ended with a road closure and a long retour – but all was well – we settled the dust with a pint in The Elms in Burton – thanks Dave.

I approached via the footpath rather than the track up to the reservoir compound, not realising I was wandering into the firing range of some pigeon shooters hiding in a hedge. They missed me but the birds didn't fare so well.

Walk with Old Man and Sis#2 from Wellow via Kirton and Ollerton. Good job the reservior is here otherwise this trig could well have been consumed by the surrounding brickworks and quarry. Trig largely complete and with some views over Sherwood Forest but we weren't convinced it deserved the name Golden Hill!
