The owner of the field has gone to great lengths to stop anyone accessing the field, numerous large signs in place and electric fence

Trig sits on the NW edge of a mound in the middle of a field grazed by horses and a bullock; access requires a low-wall climb and a duck under an electric fence if approached from the bridleway to the north. The horse I encountered close-up was very friendly, even allowing its nose to be stroked before I quietly continued to the trig and it resumed eating! Pillar in good condition; ?cement plug; FB faces WSW; SSE sighthole open, all others plugged. Position logged from GPS device accurate to 5m.

Parking on the corner then cut though the gate direct to the trig, good views and a fenced in area nearby. Lots of old mining visible in the area

Hmm, still p***ing down so I zoomed in on it from the car window again - no views due to rain and mist anyway, but interesting looking environs!

Close enough in this weather!

On edge of old mineshaft in slightly difficult to access pasture. Not particularly interesting.

A bit trespassy. Situated next to what looks like an old mine shaft. Plug replaced with plastic insert.

Agree with Nawcher - not an easy one to get to. Had to climb into a field (naughty me!!) but there is a public footpath up an adjacent road, leaving only a 20 yard dash..... Once there, it is pretty well overgrown, and views are limited - would`nt bother.

This pillar can be seen about 50m from the road. It is within a farmers field and is fenced off all around.
