Parking in the road to the N then easy pop along foot path. Interesting this one. I met the land owner, walking his dog and cat (see image) he advised me he is going to repair the pillar this year. We had a chat about trigpoints and some of the others near by including Pendle.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 7th June 1948 costing 14.8s.6d. Computed as secondary triangulation station SD74/9 within the Blackburn block during 1948. Levelled for height in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in October 1980. SITE VISIT: Approached from the northeast. Ample free roadside parking in King's Causeway, SD861362. Westerly RoW avoids crossing the golf course. Pillar in northeast corner of grazing plot occupied by placid horses. Column in damaged condition, failed attempt to remove spider between 2/07/2000 and 27/11/2004. Spider centre open, plastic cap was fitted in 2000 by JWR, also gone by 2004. Flush bracket faces northwest ~309. Open sight hole presumed to be on the SE face which is buried. Limited views but open aspects to Hameldon Hill and Pendle Hill.
