Muddy but nice location. Not very high so views are not the best but the hills to the south are in clear view. Dog loved the mud and sheep poo!

Second visit due to the cows and bull in the field last time. Parked at NT818578 due to the little parking space at NT819574 being churned up and deeply rutted (also a bit short on time today). No cows this time but plenty of sheep.

Parked at Lintlaw Farm and walked west along a track. Weather unpredictably very warm 16 degrees for February. Pillar situated next to a lovely white lichen stone wall and spider intact. Plinth is broken on SW base. Also the top part of the pillar is cracked. Fantastic views especially to south.The green pasture field is more like Telly Tubby land than a home for a bull.

Memorable for a pair of buzzards hovering and swooping above us, coming very close at times, as we approached N up the 'Bull Field' (no bull).

Up from Lintlaw via the decent farm track. The pillar does not appear to have deteriorated much since the last log back in 2009. Decent views.

Second visit. For GPS reading and photographs. SITE VISIT: Cracks in top of pillar have the potential of becoming serious. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces 153, SSE. Vented through NW sight hole.

The cattle over the years have undermined the concrete base. South side of the dyke in a cattle grazed field, metalwork all there, cracking up.
