(235) Parked up down Mayflower Close, and then walked the track that takes you to the farm. When I explained what It was I was after visiting, the reply was "Oh, you're another one of those, are you?" :-) Permission was freely given, though I was pre-warned that everything was pretty overgrown. But not to worry, getting to the pillar wasn't too difficult even at this time of the year. An interesting trigpoint in that it's to be found toppled, and partially buried. Luckily the FB side is visible.

Willow Farm. Asked for permission to access as there was Private Property signs everywhere. Found toppled in a small copse.

Good to be back on the trigging trail again and cycling away from home after several weeks out due to injury in an accident. Spoke to one house resident on way up lane. He thought it would be OK to visit when I explained my objective, although not his land, and he knew what I was searching for. The pillar took some searching for. It is alongside the track about 60 paces from the corner of the wood. It is almost at 90 degrees to the track with the top almost buried so it is very hard to spot through the vegetation. There are some views West across the Trent Valley, but areas of woodland block any in other directions.Besides two private signs passed on the way up, a gate had been shut across the acess with an even larger sign on heading back. However, a tractor and trailer was coming the other way and I received a friendly wave for opening it for him.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked at the farm drive entrance and walked unchallenged to the pillar location. A shame what has befallen it but hey it's there still for us nerds to visit.

Just off track inside wood but not easy to see. Large foundation block still attached. Moss encroaching.

vgc, no cap or plug, lying in edge of wood 55m from its W end, not visible from track in summer. Another great find Brisey ! No sign of machinery - works affecting track apparently finished.

Having taken a picture of the spot in the field where this pillar used to stand, I was walking back along the track when I noticed the dumped pillar just inside Lea Wood! It lies with the flush bracket exposed, but soil covers the top so I didn't see the spider or plug. There was a lot of work going on both near the farm and by the track leading up past Warren Wood, apparently for a pipeline, but I guess there will still be a way up to the farm and another house. The GR is for the location of the dumped pillar.

Approached from the village of Lea over the railway. No pillar but some lapwings in the field which was nice to see. Like the previous visitor says, probably removed for ease of farming!

Appears removed for the benefit of agriculture. Since visit noted as destroyed on Trigonomy list, number noted as S5009.
