Met the farmer in the farmyard and he was happy for me to walk to the pillar.. in fact he disconnected the electric fences and told me the pillar was in the hedge between his two wind turbines. Also said there were cows in the field and they would ignore me - and they did!

Called at the farmhouse, permission readily given. Pillar sits in thorn on a raised field boundary between b/w stock fencing. Original top cap retained, deeply indented lettering; sight holes not determined. Hopped over the second wire to bag the hill top 180m across a muddy pasture in driving rain - the things we do!

Walked up lane to farm and spoke to farmer for access trig point, no problem very friendly. Trig point is well hidden in hedges on dirt bank. West facing F.B.

Hedge and barbed wire make top of trig awkward to get to, but OS cap with deeply indented letters. Got permission from young farmer.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports. Visited with permission of and directed to by very kind friendly farmer. Pillar now forms part of banked fenced hedge.
