Parked in wide quarry entrance road at start of bridal track. Roadside parking shown on O.S map is locked /closed. Had to wait in trig area due to forest operation,loading HGV with logs. Trig under trees near old reservoir.

Layby parking W side of B road (SY 0243 8545). Took the long way round getting there via RoW to NE necessitating a 400m walk alongside this busy road. Returned more directly on a mapped track - little used now. Pillar sits outwith the reservoir compound; has no top cap or plug; all sight holes closed. Mainly beech woodland, no views. No photos from today, all lost in an IT glitch.

I had though to use the car park on the B3180 but found that the entrance had been blocked by two huge lumps of concrete… presumably to keep the pikeys out. There was, however, just enough room for one car in front of the blocks. A short walk down the road then hook it left up the hill to the pillar. Apart from some moss growing on it, the pillar is in good condition and has all it’s metalwork in place. Being in a copse, there’s not much in the way of views but the north aspect from the track is quite good.

Lots of local logging activity made this a lot more accessible and logging vehicles have redefined the top half of the track marked on the OS map. Steep climb. Views would have been impressive before the trig was surrounded by trees

The tracks around this trig have changed a bit from the OS map. I think this is due to the work being done in the area.We found the pillar tucked up in some heather/bracken very close to a works fence.All looks OK but this is not the best place for a peacefull walk at the moment! ELV 170m

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, in beechwood just W of resr compound. Mapped (25k) track to WNW barely exists, a line of beech trees with ground bare of vegetation, thus avoiding bramble & bracken.

I note that other loggers have bagged this one in the winter/spring months. In the summer, it's really difficult to spot! It was hiding behind waist high bracken beneath a tree and we very nearly walked past it. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering.

Took a while to find this. Next to Water Board Enclosure. Good views West from nearby. 23 years later I stumbled across it and thought I'd found a new one! Then I soon realised I'd logged it before but had completely forgotten about it.
