Parked on roadside and up field on footpath. Over stile and then kept to side of field and found it easily in side of hedge.

(309) The route from the West is closer to the pillar, but parking options looked better inside East Keal itself, so tackled this trig from there. Found a handy spot on the A16 at the War Memorial. The PROW runs alongside this. Somebody was driving a hulking bit of machinery up and down the final field that needed to be crossed, but it was still so incredibly misty, I could hear them better than I could see them. Pondering as to whether It would be best to somehow catch their attention before moving across the field, they then disappeared into the gloom and didn't return, So with the field to myself, I then made the short trip off the ROW to the pillar. Spotted easily enough, though the top isn't too visible due to hedge encroachment, but all else looked in good order.

On way back to Sheffield, first of three after meeting up with uni mate and visit to RAF Conningsby for a BBMF show. Easy to find trig using FP up the hill and veering off to see the trig in the hedge. Front of trig is showing, the hedge has been neatly cut back. The weather was warm, unusual for October, maybe that was why there were a dozen Red Admiral butterflies flying about.

A revisit whilst using the nearby footpath with my walking group. The frontage with the FB is nicely clear but the pillar is embedded in the hedge.

Inquisitive, friendly and rather frisky cows in the field before you get to the one with the trig in. Can I smell the sea?

Walked across from lane on footpath and then along hedge line to trig point. Not easy to find this time year but did some trimming back once found.

The trig is trying its best to hide in the hedge adopting lichen camouflage. If it hadn't been a very chilly winters day with a chillier breeze and the views being distinctly grey as the rain arrives, I'm sure I'd be scoring it higher. The views are wide and in the sunshine should be fantastic as this is the last hill of the Wolds and flat lands spread beyond. A revisit on a warmer day beckons.

Through gate, pleasant stroll up PRoW to stile. Easily spotted in hedgerow to L of the path. Skirt round the field boundary to avoid crops.

The footpath up from the nearest road was guarded by bovine beasties so I approached along the side of the adjacent cropfield. Pillar is embedded in hedge, and somewhat soil-submerged, the bottom of the flush bracket is flush with the ground. Good views, especially to the E, once you crest the top of the cropfield (the pillar is not at the highest point in the field).

A joint visit with Carole. We parked by the gate to the west and virtually followed the footpath to the pillar. It is in good condition but now has an asphalt plug.

3rd and last of the day, a nice easy walk up to it from the road between West Keal and Mavis Enderby, passed the memorial oak tree as mentioned by Lathama in his log.

Hi, I'm Big Fish and I am the main Trigpointer and Geocacher from the Fishteers. I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, I am logging the find on the same day that I found it with the Fishteers.

Last trig of the day and it was drizzling heavily. Of course, the footpath [I approached from the W] ran through a field of waist-high grass so I got soaked and then I couldn't find the pillar for love or money. Using previous logs I eventually found it almost completely covered with vegetation which meant more soaking trying to access it. The plug is plastic. There isn't any paint and the sightholes are below soil or vegetation level. Incidentally, there was an interesting memorial oak tree by the second stile off the lane. Good views E on a clear day, which today wasn't.

Accessible from the footpath that runs from the west of East Keal. Easily seen from the second stile. Condition good but the plug is missing and ivy encroaches. I thought it would be a quiet spot, but a model helicopter was being flown in the first field and 4wds were gathering in the disused pit shown on the OS 25000 map. GR to 10m only.
