Parking at disused quarry to S. Good path to this promontory Iron Age hill fort. Trig sits atop what is probably an earthwork boundary. Pillar, with tatty coat of pastel green paint, is in poor state with all top edges chipped and RHD vertical edge missing large chunk of concrete. Original cap missing, asphalt plug; 1 sight hole open on RHD side. Concrete plinth presumably given a make-over by OS in 1980, as evidenced by lettering made in the then wet concrete. Some good views, but better from the nearby toposcope.

Yet another visit of many many as I lived in Cheltenham for 20 years. It's long been a peppermint green pillar as culmination of walk along the Daisybank lane at base of northern escarpment right to its east end and then up the east ridge for the first time on this route. Shame about the orange plastic stuff bounding some so called repairing of the grassy area with reinforcement plastic tessellation mesh. Pretty pointlessly over sensitive and unecessary in my view.

My 25th extant pillar! Parked in car park to SE of trig near Hill Farm and walked along track to area of Access Land atop Leckhampton Hill. Pillar sits on top of a bank about 100m from the topograph where there are quite spectacular views of Cheltenham and beyond. Pillar has a nasty blue/green paint job and an asphalt plug. FB faces N. The west sighthole is open but all others are plugged. Position logged from GPS device accurate to Ī5m. Close to the topograph is a rivet set into the Cotswold limestone (see log for TP7908). On the way back to the car I was assaulted by a small dog who gleefully ran down the path towards me, jumped in a puddle and then jumped straight at me!

The pillar stands on the boundary bank of an Iron Age enclosure on the edge of the Cotswolds to the south of Cheltenham. The trig is a bit battered on some of its edges and is mostly covered in peeling turquoise paint. It stands on a 2Ĺ metre square base. It has an asphalt plug and FB S2432. My walk started from the car park on Daisy Bank Road to the north. Highlights included the inclines and kilns associated with the old quarry and the Devilís Chimney rock formation. There are some very pleasant woods on the lower slopes of the escarpments. The views from the Cotswold Way on the top of Leckhampton Hill and Hartley Hill are fabulous. From the trig the view is mostly to the west over the Vale of Gloucester to the Malvern Hills and some distant, hazy, Welsh Mountains. Shab Hill is to the south and between the trees to the north there is a glimpse of Cleeve Hill. A glint of the Severn could be seen to the south west. The topograph on the edge of the hill has a stunning panorama over Cheltenham and Gloucester. Four metres to the west of the topograph there is a ten inch square block of stone or concrete on the ground with a small rivet sized piece of metal in its centre which may possibly be the weathered remains of SO92 T115 Bartlow non pillar trig. The hill top grass land, the quarry workings and the north and west escarpment slopes have been designated the Leckhampton Hill and Charlton Kings Common SSSI.

With various relatives walked along the CW from Seven Springs to Crickley Hill country park where joined by more of the clan for a huge family picnic.

Slightly disappointed by this pillar; it is far enough away from the edge of the hill to make views from the pillar itself negligable, although walk a few yards and they are superb. Access is easy as the pillar is on the Cotswold Way.

Superb spot on the top of the hill, although to get the very best views you have to walk 200 yards west to the 'Nixon' toposcope and then the spectacular view over Cheltenham can be seen properly. There is a concrete plug replacement and the pillar is painted a delicate shade of eggshell blue! There is a large chunk of concrete missing out of the SW/NW faces and the top corners are all chipped - this has been all painted over. The huge concrete base stands about 1.5 feet proud of the grass and seems re-inforced below that. Found a large clump of pyramidal orchids in the grass by the path! Great spot!

Devil's Chimney very precarious. Fogged over viewing plaque.
